    I get the same thing. I'm always baffled when people make such ridiculous assumptions. Why is that? I mean, when I see people I'm always in this 50/50 mode when I take into consideration that my assumptions might not be exactly correct. They say that seeing is believing but come on...give it some thought too

    I'm always tempted to ask an INFJ I know 'What's up?' or 'Whacha thinking about?' but I know it will only throw her off. It's tough to keep my Fe on a leash sometimes

    You know you're an INFJ when you think you could totally pull off some of the things in Justine Larbalestier's book Magic or Madness like a 'radar' and just knowing how many of things there are with just a little bit more practice.

    Late to the party! 155 pages, phew ....

    I think it might be an INFJ thing that I have been asked for directions several times a month for about 20 years, even when (or perhaps especially when) I'm new to a place myself. And that often I can give them. And that when I've been to a place just once I can find it again, sometimes years later, and even in the dark: intuition as Human Compass. Or perhaps I'm just very lucky to have been born with that and it's nothing to do with Type.

    There's another useful talent - seeing the end of last night's dream as soon as you lie down and close your eyes the following night, like picking up on a cliffhanger episode - that I've only ever heard of in INFJs, but again for all I know it's widespread/common.
    I still have a great deal to learn here.

    She just can't be chained to a

    and nothing's lost
    at such a cost

    I retreat into my world of music ALL the time. I always have headphones on, 20% of the time, no music is playing. It's my, "I'm not in the mood to talk" mode.

    I will match my music to whatever mood I'm in or based on what the weather is like.
    Doing so helps me focus on whatever I'm doing or thinking about, it helps me experience things more and feel to a deeper level... its like steroids or something. (is that strange??)

    That happens to me too.
    Just the other day someone asked me, "What are you upset about?".
    "Nothing," I replied, "what are you talking about?"
    "Oh, you just had this look on your face like you were really angry or something."

    I was actually in a pretty good mood. *shrug*

    No, it's not strange. I do this as well. It seems that the music I listen to sort of amplifies my mood at that particular point. Music helps to turn off all the disturbing "noises" from the outside world at that moment and it helps to really focus on my inner "peace". But that "peace" inside of me is like a continuous flow of energy that is all over the place and music kind of controls it or forces it to flow the way I want/need it to flow. Boy, I hope this makes any sense

    That makes perfect sense. It's almost like I wrote it.
    Maybe I did write it... through the INFJ hive mind.

    *high five*

    Ever get the impression of your mind being like a stereo stucked on shuffle?

    Definitely! I can think of some topic and then a few seconds of 'disk switching' in my head happens and a different topic happens. Usually related in a vague, N way to the first. A lot of the time there isn't even that 'blank period' between topics.

    A combination of that and a broken tape recorder. Some weeks I just have -some- phrase repeating itself in my head. It could be any random phrase. IT's irritating to a HUGE degree.
