I'm an INFJ and I truly dislike anything that's phoney, artificial and shallow.
When I was a child I was told that I was naive for believing too much in things that I heard or read. I had some sort of inherent ability to trust in people and believe that whatever they communicated held some sort of truth - I guess I transposed the way I communicate onto other people thinking they were much like me.
I've changed my view in the meantime though.
When I communicate it's of highly importance to me to be authentic and sincere. I even feel I have a personal and social responsibility to tell the truth, sometimes in all its complexities, and I have a very hard time to compromise this worth even though I know that it's necessary for me to do so in order to communicate in a more efficient manner.
Does anyone of you INFJ's (or other NF's) recognize this pattern of thought and feeling?
