    Me, too. I just discovered that I cry for joy sometimes and don't realize it. It often feels as painful as sadness. I wonder if realizing that I'm crying for joy will change anything?

I do have the ability to instill a deep sense of silliness into most any creature.

    Some of my favorite humor involves nuanced facial expressions, paradox, and clever word play. I especially like "Flight of the Concords", "The Office", and the Comedy Central's news shows. I was also rather fond of "Bubble Boy" and...

    "Kabluey".
    I rarely watch movies since I cant pause it and think of a different path the plot could have taken like I can in a book. I usually use TV as background noise while working on homework (Thank Jeebus for History channel, discovery channel, and other 'boring' channels)

    I found Arrested Development hilarious in the off the wall subtle humor. And dont forget Monty Python's wittily absurd ("Spare an alm for an ex-leper?" - "And suddenly the artist had a massive heart attack and died, and the beast was no more.")

    I made a joke where I invented a 'logic' that made everyone not count. You'll have to PM a request for it, I dont want to add too much fluff to this post

    See, I don't do that because I don't want to fill my head with something unrelated to what's actually happening. :P

    To answer this question, yes, in fact. On the buses sometimes a feeling just comes over me and I just want to put my hand on someone's shoulder. Or there is just something that compels me to want to reach out and hug someone I do not know.

    This can easily be thought of as well what it appears to be. It comes usually when I feel alone and detached.

    Honestly, out of all the INFJ here you really hit more nails on the head than anyone in a most detached fashion. Thank you for your insights they are spot on.

    Tongue tied yes! It's almost like word salad, so frustrating! Wine sometimes helps, but then I just end up overcompensating and talking faster when I am on a good stride. Which can probably be overwhelming and smothering to take all in for the poor listener.

    You want to read your favorite book from the different perspectives of all the characters involved...

    everyone's personality has a different "flavor"....

    people ask you if youre on drugs...

    you wish people would engage in more physical contact...(not that way gutterminds)

    You try to imagine people's entire lives while you watch them walk across campus...

    picking a name for a character in your story takes days while the story only took two hours to write...

    In your mind you can make the happiest song bring you to tears...

    (true/ not?)
    I am going to have to agree with all of these points because I have done them all inexplicably without actively pursuing them.

    If I feel strongly, emotionally attached to someone, usually intuitive feeling/thinking types. I have a hard time letting go of their personality in my consciousness. So to alleviate this I will in effect role play their life like a storybook hypothetically and send them my good well wishes to compensate for the burden of not having them to mentally/physically stimulate me. Also, I do these scenarios with people I do not know, or people I see frequently as I go about my day-to-day grind. A lot of what ifs, who, why, whens, what is's, and how they have beens and or doings.

    Names are very personal for me. So are words. I do not actively use a word unless it is revelatory to me in some fashion emotionally or receptively. If I play any roleplaying game or if I write any story. The names of characters are one thing that takes the longest time. Intonation of the syllables, eccentricity, or sometimes quick and simple yet powerfully stimulating. It takes me hours to be happy with a name I have chosen because it must impart perfect peace, understanding, and character traits to the role they fill based off of exactly I couldn't tell you.

    I do wish people engaged in more personal contact. So much that I have almost become estranged to it in a very conservative fashion when it is imparted to me-- I have to be warmed up. I am not exactly a complete rainbow. I actually need the pot of gold.

    It is more about sensuality and for me it imparts comradeship and commonality among participants. It is very much a cultural thing depending on where you go. So if I were in your shoes, travel, and learn other languages associated with characteristics of more physical receptivity without the banal baggage of your current cultures perceptions of closeness / trust / eccentricity faulting or rather complete awkwardness.

    Usually when I am depressed I listen to very upbeat music, like the j-pop group Perfume. This easily brings me to tears. There are times when I have tears and I am not aware of the sentiments that provided them. Sometimes if something moves deeply in me as I am actively doing it, like singing, reading my own writing, it can give me an elation. Very jubilant. Even when I am speaking about things that are emotionally close to me I can tear up because I feel very exposed to impart this sense of spiritual birthing it takes to do it. I could almost liken them to birth pains even though I am not a woman. Maybe I take that back, sorry ladies.

    Lastly, I do get asked if I am on meds or rather, where are your meds? I don't smoke marijuana. The last time I did it felt like a crumpled up ball of paper in my head that unraveled as if a smoldering coal had been placed inside and unfurled. That and the paranoia? Talk about warped. Why do I need help in this department??

    As far as stimulants go... coffee, nicotine, love me.

    I must say this is true too. I write as I am speaking in my head. I type so fast I forget that not everyone can type as readily or wishes to input multiple lines on a messenger within the span of ten seconds. This is where the internet really screws with my head because I think I come off as smothering.. when in reality this would be perfectly conversational, again paranoia bites me. Typing is very natural to me so much that if I think about typing I mess up and become amazed that I am able to do something as complex as typing on a QWERTY keyboard. Then the mere fact that I am even using words to convey all these things is another thing that routinely incapacitates my thinking.

    Typing has a good bond with me because the pacing of it is very rhythmic, enough time and spontaneity for the thoughts to flow out of me unabated. That and spelling. I love spell check here because I don't always know the way to pronounce, communicate, properly spell a word that would impart perfect dictation. Thesaurus is your friend too. But that comes after you spill your guts. I usually have to curb this tendency because I get such a high out of imparting understanding to myself at the expense of perfect confusion to someone else.

    Oh my.

    You know your an INFJ when.. Your an amputated idealist. You require many mechanical limbs to carry your heavy weight thanks to the gravity of reality. You will also use other peoples limbs if at all possible, whether they want to give them to you or not. You always find a way to compensate for your fat ass. This imparts in your journey a flexibility of sorts because you've learned how to use and make use of your polymath nature by integrating those limbs.

    In the case of an inherent laxity or weakness in others you will give several of your own appendages that you have accumulated to compensate in order to realize an ideal that can in turn become taciturn towards you and you feel shamed and insane when you can no longer walk because you gave away all your limbs. Compassion but none for yourself, your life is already forfeit, because you recycle everyone's limbs.

    Then they can proceed to turn on the world because no one gave them legs or arms back, or perhaps even a head to know the difference? Where did that go? You don't want to be human after all. Your too much impartial to the concept because the half-truth of your existence defeats the reality and you are comforted in your nonexistence you exist in.

    And yes I couldn't help but edit it five times. I had to add more.

    You can tactfully tell an idiot to STFU and GTFA while wearing the sweetest smile on your face.
