    Default Agreed.

    These comments mostly hit the nail on the head, but I don't think anyone has EVER asked me whether I "even have emotions/a soul!"

    They usually say "You are so perceptive/insightful/kind/intelligent," and those I am emotionally intimate with comment that I should share more of myself. In classes, I will speak up when I am passionate or informed about a point of discussion, and yet, when I do, I am always surprised to see that people's heads raise and turn as they are actually listening and surprised by what I contribute.

    I get praised for my good listening skills more than anything, and it's natural for me to learn someone's intimate "life story"-type experiences during a first meeting. I could also write a book about them later.

    I have an excellent memory about people's "life stories" and personalities and constantly discover people's secrets without trying. They flat out tell them to me.

    I am considering becoming a spy--on the good side

    & I keep all these secrets--my own, my friend's, perfect strangers'--bottled up inside me... do other INFJs feel drained by carrying so much of someone else around inside of them all the time?

    OH, and EVERY guy I've ever been interested in or involved with has asked me, "What are you thinking??" Hahaha.

    Furthermore, I don't know if it's an INFJ thing, but I have a very hard time accepting compliments. I just want to be better; I don't think I will ever be enough.

    I can't handle compliments, no. I can eat up criticism, though.

    Every INFJ I've known bottles up their own and other people's problems. I can't speak for everyone here, obviously. It gets even more complex for me.

    I haven't finished reading this great thread yet, but I've loved it since the first page. My contribute, for now, is not really something I've been told, but what I feel others think about me sometimes. Just a sentence that suddenly came to my mind (a well known experience ^^).

    About you, my guess is I can hardly make guesses.

    My first answer to this was:

    "Oh well, as far as I can see, today is dark gray. Yesterday was definitely not that dark. Maybe it will turn to be a better day later on, who knows. You know, I don't really wish for it to happen, I like rainy days, they're so calm, relaxing... I guess I could keep this on for long, but i think you just want me to say "blue"."

    These are 3 phrases I'm used to hearing: you're weird/you're too sensitive/you think too much. I take each one as a compliment no matter the intent.

    because they are in their own way
    you hear " sensitive "
    I tend to hear " mean "

    anyone else concur ?

    If infjs are the doormat in the house of personality, they occasionally trip you on the way in and have a secret little laugh.

    I heard that "you think too much", I'd like to know what you're thinking when you stare at people/things/ in the distance like that".
