When you like to see yourself as invisible but all-seeing. (I actually chose a work space in my office when I can see everybody who gets in, while nobody can see me)
When you know people for a few weeks, and after that you can say more about them then people who have known them for YEARS can.
When you can appear perfectly INTJ as a sort of self-defense, but the minute somebody is crying for help with real pain, you are running to them in a true INFJ mode, carrying medicine, coffee, chocolate and a funny book.
When you hate being touched by people you don’t really know and like, but give bear hugs to those you do.
When your trademark response to people is 'no problem'
When people start to see you as the magician who can make it all work – AND hand out sweets to the kids.
When said magician turns totally Gandalf from time to time and you prefer to talk to yourself only, as the wisest person around…

And if I only could,
I'd make a deal with God,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems.

Heh, I talk to myself a lot as well, though usually just with inane babble when I'm working on something. It confuses or amuses anyone near by, so I normally do it when I'm alone. If I'm left by myself in the house I can end up holding entire conversations with myself. I can't decide if that's hilarious or creepy.

I'm sure that talking to yourself isn't a strictly INFJ thing, but I'm guessing that there are quite a few types who would find it odd.
Most people seem to find it funny though, so at least it's not odd in a bad way...INFJ 9w1.

Talking to yourself out loud?
Definatly not a NT thing. It's too ineffective to bother with. xD~Self-depricating Megalomaniacal Superwolf

Yeah, my neighbor probably thinks I'm insane because as soon as I step outside of the car I'm talking with someone that he can't see. Constantly talking aloud and answering my own questions. Definitely NF at the very least.

Oh, wait. You do it out loud in public? I'm doing it inside my head. Well, most of the time that is. Old blabbermouth is in the house when I'm all alone.
I'm way too self-conscious to exhibit this kind of behaviour in public and I try my best to avoid it.
