Thread: You know you're an INFJ when...

    I think my sentimental attachment to physical objects might've flourished under different life-circumstances however.

    I tend to use "you". "Ok,[my name] you need to do this today!You said you would!".
    Just out of curiosity.
    interesting, I tend to use 'you' as well, actually!! which makes me feel even more removed from myself.

    relax dude. so much for loving kindness?
    I happen to have a great ENTP friend, the one I was b!7ching about seems to see me as an enemy. OH and I have suppressed Fe (Gotta love the masculine stereotype and peer pressure)... so what loving kindness?

    Hee...I used to line all of my stuffed animals up on one side of the bed before sleeping. I didn't want to leave any of them out because I thought their feelings might get hurt.

    I don't know if it's overcompensating or what, but in my adult life I have completely eschewed sentimental attachment to objects.

    See, I would've found such a crowd overwhelming. I donated a lot of my stuffed animals when I was a kid to sunday school or wherever. My mom thought it was generous, but really I was trying to simplify my life and also send the animals to loving homes because I couldn't provide them with it.

    I'm a one-bear woman.

    I asked myself if I do this too, and got the following mental reply (quoted verbatim):

    "Yes, you often talk to yourself in the second person, especially when trying to encourage yourself to complete a task or when telling yourself off for failing to meet your own standards"

    So I guess that's a "yes". Which leads on to this:

    You know you're an INFJ when you frequently engage in internal conversations.

    Haha, yes, all the time. I also talk to myself in second person, but usually use the "understood you" instead, such as, "(You) Get going on your work!"

    It never occurred to me that people don't talk to themselves in the second person! Are there types who tend to think in "I" instead of "you"?

    I relate to so many of the things I've read on thsi thread. It's nice to know that other people have the same sorts of eccentricities that you do.

    Yes, I think we do that as a way of distancing ourselves emotionally from the thing which may be bothering us. Sort of parenting ourselves. Using a "higher authority" to motivate ourselves.

    I know that many people will use this technique to distance themselves from exposing their feelings out loud as well.

    Instance:

    "My wife died a couple of years ago. You know, YOU get kinda lonely when that happens." Meaning, "I have gotten lonely since my wife died." That's sometimes too scary of a thing to admit out loud.

    Oh yeah, I used to give it a name when I was younger for each "voice".I have no idea why but I remember having that "military" voice since forever. Haha, I think I developed a strange fascination for crime, violence and the military at a young age for various reasons and it stayed in my mind.

    "The "you" I use when I'm sad was a nice lady, now it's a "soft" voice, she had no face because there was light behind her. Kind of like when you look at people during the evening and they stand in the doorway.(ex: It's alright, you did what you could you know? You're did great, don't beat yourself up...)
    The you I use when I was required to do tasks was a "tougher version of myself", no face or picture there .(ex: Giving up? Have you no shame, after all the hard work...)
    The "you" who would "give me faith in a very forceful manner" was "The general/Director". A man with blond hair and green eyes who sat in a dark room with folded arms.(ex: Are you going to let him get away with that? Kick his ass now!)

    Am I the only weirdo who gave the "you" different personalities?

    Also, do you have the habit of seriously inventing movies inside your head? At times I'd honestly take time out to "dream" now I don't have as much time but it's still there.
    Boredom doesn't really exist in your world, you could be locked in a cell for two days and have the best time of your life.
