    Yeah, I have a hard time staying "with" a group of people. I will zone out or wander off, because I cannot handle all of the noise.

    it makes me fuzzy inside to know you get that too. I'll change the name of the thread if possible though, it's clear now it's not an solely infp "symptom".

    Ha-ha, my friends often complain to me because of my tendency to disappear and leave them talking to themselves.

    I have to say I do the same thing.

    I just knew how to be "invisible" and no one would notice me even if I was in the group. Even physically. Just avoid interaction and making eye contact and walk carefully and be casually unobtrusive and it is amazing what people won't notice. It's like "cloaking mode"... where you just pull back into yourself for a bit, feel out when people aren't looking, and then carefully go on your way or make it look like you're getting up to do one thing and instead you leave by the most unobtrusive route possible. (Or you get up to use the bathroom and just never come back.)

    I would slip away if I got bored or emotionally drained, usually. Just being a group, sometimes I get restless and I need to go do something to find real stimulation for my brain.

    I was wondering if the P helped.
    Sleepless is INFJ, but everyone else here is P.

    I think many J types (maybe not INFJ, but the others) don't mind as much making bold/obvious/strong actions and choices.
    IxxPs might be much more likely to flex around quietly to what is happening and perceiving the right moment to make a departure as to cause the least amount of waves, without even thinking much of it.

    Suddenly the song "I dissapear" by Metallica enters my brain... lol
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    That's possible, I also was P before I was J. Does N help too? Everyone here's N... though most people who write here are Ns, so maybe that doesn't tell us anything.


    Dwigie,

    sorry if I "stepped on you" a little, I was answering to the first post, it seems now I just repeated what the others said. :rolli:

    So you were for it before you were against it?

    I don't know. IS's tend to be earthier and more engaged in concrete ways that are observable. IN's tend to be more ethereal and internalized, so they put out less observable and tangible cues of their presence.

    I think the intuition helps, we'll probably spot the moment to disappear without being noticed, easier. Like when some intuitives scan when it's okay to add comments to the conversation without interrupting. And like Jennifer said it's probably in some of the presence that we portray around ourselves, in the ethereal air.

    Dwingie it makes me fuzzy inside to know that I'm not the only one.
