    I don't think there is such a thing as over-analyzing.

    There are too many personal viewpoints. Too many places to wonder with your mind's eye. It's all helpful in some way.

    I think that's just the post-modern mindset that started way back with the punk movement, and has since infiltrated itself into mainstream culture as a reaction against the fake-y nice 1950's style world, and of course the Victorians who were even more "mannered" (and dishonest) in the 19th century.

    You need to learn to balance your concern for other people's feelings with being "real"
    I very much agree with this, and it's kind of what I was saying in my own way.

Sometimes I do self-censorship just to save myself the hassle of having to deal with someone's reaction.
    That's much more common with NFPs, IMO, than NFJs. Fi wants to be authentic. I've had to learn to be less blunt. That doesn't mean lying though, just saying things in a more palatable manner so that it's actually more effective instead of just offensive. You know, a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, bwhahaha

    ^I'm pretty blunt (then again, my Fe seems to be a little defective, depending on the day...). I've actually haven't really seen NFPs be blunt, but maybe it's just me.

    Yeah, I have always had problems with the opposite (the NFJ / Fe-related issue) and have had to learn to just be much more forward and not care about how people [general populace] respond. definitely ENFP is much more forward about what it's thinking.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Hm, I've actually been accused of being "abrasive" and "terse", which surprised me. Of course, it's always ESxx people who say that.

    There's two people I know in person who I am quite sure are INFJs now, and one is very sweet, and the other is a lump that never talks. I suppose the 2nd probably seems less "nice" to people.

    Yes, extroverts are naturally more open about what they are thinking. I don't necessarily volunteer my opinions out of nowhere.

    Incidentally, emoticons are used to try to express what the person means, hopefully. You think everyone who uses emoticons are manipulating? It helps to set tone.

    It helps to set tone. :steam:
