When people ask you for advice yet fear simultaneously asking for advice because they know you can be painfully honest. Basically people would rather not ask your opinion on certain things like those terrible jeans they were wearing.
When you're happy that this thread exists because others seem to experience the same things as you, but still creeped out because people seem to be inside your head. Or maybe it's just me.

Yeah which brings up another point: You know you're INFJ if you constantly fall victim to the old saying "Great minds think alike". Your own thoughts and conclusions seem to match up perfectly well with those other people(especially other INFJs); and as a result you're often accused of lacking originality.
Well that explains my fascination with that time era. In fact come to think of it, the most interesting time periods of ANY country's history is their civil wars...
Ever since I was quite small I have been fascinated with something similar - the ending of an order/beginning of a new order, transitions of power... fin de siecle, decline of empires... it's very interesting to be living in NYC with all that is going on atm.
