    Talking Ask an INFJ

    I was surprised to find out that the old thread had not been taken seriously. So... I shall be creating a new one, that will be taken seriously.

    *cough* Ask an INFJ...you won't get an answer. *cough*

    It wasn't taken seriously. I wonder why, it was totally legit, I swear.

    I think Peguy put it the best:

    Is this really a question?

    I'll let you decide that semantic

    But I notice INFJ/Ps in general, talking about how they don't feel quite human.

    But you have it backwards.. You are the humans. the rest are just hairless apes who taught themselves how to dress and talk.

    Do you know what I mean?

    Hmm.... Part of it. Personally I feel more in touch with my spirituality than I do with the "real world". The same way that people with autism can relate more to objects than they can to emotions. I definatly feel human thats for sure, just not grounded. Did that answer your question? :confused:

    This is pretty funny, because I was just telling a friend the other day that I feel like a robot with Feeling modded on. Albeit a robot from the future, who cares about the destiny of the human race and wants to help everyone reach nirvana.

    On the one hand, I relate very strongly to narratives about artificial life, alien life, cosmic intelligences; any kind of story in which there is a non-human attempting to connect to humanity (or a specific individual) by accessing their feelings, learning about feeling by encountering it for the first time, anything like that. Fundamentally Other, and strange, and not all completely aware of its own capabilities. But one intensely interested and caring about the human experience and the destinies we can take each other to — the limits of the universe and the depths of existence.

    I feel like my Ti processing acts as a CPU that's always running in the background, lines and lines of code abstractly processing, filing and breaking down details of systems that I can access when I need it to think logically but largely can leave to its own devices.

    Most of the time, I think I project a warm but somewhat distant or hard-to-reach persona. But when I get emotionally surprised, physically overexhausted or very stressed I can shut down into that robot mode, coldly calculating how to "blend in" with other people to try to camouflage how exposed I have become.

    Personality metaphysics aside, aren't we all really ghosts inside a machine made of flesh and bone anyway? Maybe all this talk about feeling disconnected from humanity has more to do growing up surrounded by a household full of guardhouse sensors.
