Hey guys I am brand new here and was wondering if other INFJs feel like they may come off a little neurotic. A lot of people I know who are higher functioning neurotics tend to be FJs and I think this trait may be a little more intrinsic for the FJ over other personality types. The reason I feel this was is because of some observations I have made in the feild that I work in ect.. I also have finally come to except and understand that I can be a little on the neurotic side myself. It's almost as if I feel like I don't regulate my emotions as well as others and being an FE my FI friends seem to pick it up on me the easiest. I have an almost impossible time trying to hide how I feel and wish that I wasn't such a self preservationist. It would seem that relationships are a real oxymoron in my life as I really enjoy being around others but just want to be left alone. I feel like I am overly complicated and sometimes just want to be off gaurd and shut off my NI for a little while. Everything that I do and all that I am is completely independent of what the rest of the world seems to be doing, which I love to feed but feel like its maybe unhealthy in some ways. Everything is complicated in my life especially being a guy. I feel a lot of other peoples emotions and just want to help and understand others. When I took the MBTI and my results came back INFJ I wasn't the slightest bit surprised. Anyways, I realize I am getting off the topic of neurosis but the reading on this thread is really between the lines. I was reciently reading this book by jeffrey a kottler who is a therapist and a professer in the department of councelling at California state university who I believe to be without a doubt INFJ as well. I believe he talks about neurosis being quite common with this sort of personality type, including himself. How do you other FJs feel you are in terms of emotional stability and how do you think this might also relate to the enneagram?
Nice to meet you all =)
