    Yeah. Your priorities and perspective changes and you have too much other crap to worry about.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    hmmm, I think I'm certainly old enough by now but I still struggle with this at certain times. . I guess it's all about growth and stages.

    I agree it gets better as you get older, if only in that your coping mechanisms and techniques get more refined and come more naturally to you.

    I am kind of the opposite in that, I spend so much time focusing on the big picture
    That I miss the subtitles. This prevents me from having fun much in the same way.

    You are right.. who needs this ??

    Now... :sits back and watches the two newer INFJs:

    Omg, but the INFJ and INFP people I know are the nicest people I've ever met!

    Are you telling me they're really sad inside?

    Today I am despising it, too. Altho, not because of having a hard time having fun. I'm tired of being told how to be. Be more outgoing, be more assertive, be less sensitive. I got a lot of that today.

    But I'm just me.

    I know we all feel unappreciated at times. And usually I can take criticism alright, but I'm hosting a very small pity party tonight.:smiley_violin: Its a limited engagement.


    On a funnier note, when I first read this thread title, I thought it was going to be a non-INFJ bashing us.

    Try not to think sometimes. Exult in the reality of your own stupidity.

    Have you tried going on extended camping trips? Its a way of confronting yourself with only the necessities of life (i.e.: food, shelter, Dragon Ball z episodes on your laptop.)
