    Sshhh, you were not supposed to let that secret out.

    Guilty as charged! . I do that all the time. Even right now three of my friends are under such a test. One of them is failing quite miserably, having contacted me not once after I "disappeared" two weeks ago.

    I was thinking the same. Our quirky ways of showing affection don't really work if people understood our hidden agendas...

    Under that sort of test, I wouldn't have any friends

    Yes. I cannot help it. It's a burden I have to live with.

    Quite true. Thanks to this constant testing I don't think I have a single "friend" who meets my requirements of friendship. Nowadays, I'm usually in neutral mode when it comes to people. Sometimes I feel neutral+ and neutral- towards them.

    I guess I need to psycho-analyze deeper into myself to find my standards for things. I'm really not conscious of them I guess.

    Hmm, you know you are an INFJ when you don't have values, you have standards. Values are used to apply worth to people, the higher their value the more attention you give them. Also your mental catch-phrase, conscious or not, sometimes can be: "That's not good enough!"

    LOL. I am very familiar with this happening. I use little tests in relationships such as this all the time.

    In relation to this, I was thinking about the notorius "INFJ doorslam".

    Do you INFJs, after testing your friends and seeing them fail, take this as a definite sign of closure?

    As for myself, I do feel saddened when this happens but I also know that people cannot read my mind. So, I keep on testing them again and again in hopes that maybe this time they will pass the test.

    However, after these tests, the friendship just fizzles away. Doorslam!

    And yes, I am aware that this is my problem and not theirs

    2 weeks is nothing for me! I rarely call my friends because I am always working on some grand scheme or something and I lose track of time. But I never stop liking my friends, I just get lost in the matrix. But if you call me, I will be overjoyed to hear your voice and expect you to come over asap and help me detonate this new bomb while we gab about life. If not, we can meet for drinks later... but call me to remind me, ok?
