Yes for the second point too. They're rare, but on a bad day I feel completely isolated from the world and generally have a chip on my shoulder about everyone and everything. I'll start picking people apart, doubting their intentions, getting frustrated with individuals as well as humanity as a whole and consider a large number of people just plain 'stupid' or inferior... superiority complex to the max. Ouch. I never ever, ever voice these negative thoughts though. People often don't even realise I'm having a bad day, even though I'm feeling very melodramatic and depressive inside my own head. I suppose a part of me realises I'm going overboard and keeps it all under control. On a normal day I'm honestly very accepting and see the good in everyone. I really hate the silent monster I become on a bad day, it's like I become an entirely different person at times.

You know you're an INFJ when...
...at age 8 you tell your mom you want to become "someone who solves conflict" when you grow up (I always felt like I could see human relationships like coloured lines crossing the room).
...every day is a conscious battle not to turn into a crazy catlady.
...you tell your INTJ friend that you don't mind being an INFJ, you just wished you were better at it.
...you were born at the age of about 55 (I was such an old fart when I was little) and at 36 you feel like you're finally hitting emotional puberty, in reverse (like the curious case of Benjamin Button).

Sometimes, I really am confused and don't know what age I really am. So, I cut off a toe and count the rings just to have something to go by."I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

....you have this intuitive feeling that you're the "chosen one" in some form or another and that you are supposed to make a lasting effect on people, the world, existence, etc.
Logically, you rationalize that the odds are slim that this is probably true, but there's a little voice in the back of your mind that continues to push for this scenario.

......you have an INTJ best friend.
