    That was cool. It's nice to know I'm not completely crazy, or rude. I thought it was a bit strange myself, but now im comforted knowing im not the only one.

    Compliments... They make me uncomfortable as the recipient and the giver. Just my own insecurity.

    Well.........I take compliments alright, it's success that I have an issue with.

    It's like I fear that if I succeed at something, especially on a high level, like academics for arguments' sake, then they will constantly expect that of me.

    In other words to me, it would feel as though I had failed them in some aspect, If I don't manage to attain that same level again. I've been talking to my psychologist about it, and she said that Fear of success is definitely something thats apparent in me. My question is are their any other INFJ's that have this same idea occurring ?

    Yes. To give you an example, when my classmates ask me for help regarding the English language, (such as when they need me to translate a word, a text, or their thought to English or vice versa) I always ask for the context, or what they mean, etc. I need that information because I'm afraid that otherwise the result won't be good enough and/or won't meet their expectations of me (as I'm considered to have a good grasp of the language)
    Not really.

    Now calling anyone out here, but if you're an INFJ, you should be a natural with compliments. Compliments are really the domain of extraverted feeling.

    Giving or receiving compliments? The reason I ask is my friends often note tha I know just the right thing to say at the moment.

    Anyway just wondering ...

    But it is more natural for us to see through the perspectives of others (Ni), causing us to question whether they actually mean it or not.

    Right now I not even sure if I am an INFJ as many members of this forum think otherwise.

    So, feel free to ignore my postings for this thread.

    What makes you think you aren't an INFJ? Several comments that you have made make me think that perhaps you are an INFJ...as a male INFJ friend of mine says the same things.
