    Ah, well see I don't blame anything on my type really. And I'm actually very bad at dressing up my thoughts in pretty bows. That deception does not appeal to me either. Instead, to maintain harmony, I simply keep those thoughts to myself unless I see an opportunity to voice them.

    Hmm, but I don't see any stereotype where INFJs are supposed to be rainbows and unicorns. I thought that was NFPs?

    Oh, you're right. We're supposed to be the dolphins.

    LOL, thanks for taking the time to write responses, some good points there. It was meant to be tongue and cheek and I exaggerated a lot in certain parts I'll admit...Nice stuff though.

    -You realize just how much you love your mate when you're AWAY from them...

    Yep

    -You can't go to bed early because you need to stay up later and prolong your "reflective time"...

    Some nights, definitely.

    -You wish most people you know could be more like your "idealized" versions of them...

    I wish I could live with the non-ideal person

    -You felt like there was some magical force making everyone around you way different than yourself until you took the MBTI and realized you're just the rarest personality type.

    Kind of, never really thought about it too much UNTIL I got into MBTI. Now it's just getting other people to listen to my ramblings about the subject!

    -You mull over things that don't go your way until you're blue in the face, but if something big goes your way you can get so happy you almost become an ENFJ.

    Totally.

    -Hanging out with other people, especially extroverts, drains the CRAP out of you after a while.

    Yup.

    -You struggle so hard to fit in your daily life drains the crap out of you.

    Not me... though I'm learning TO fit in so I'm not such a weirdo.

    -Your desk/floor is a mess and you couldn't care less, plus you think anyone who cleans obsessively should be channeling their energy towards more valuable goals, like fixing the economy or world peace.

    Exactly! Though I prefer the term 'clutter' because mess assumes remnants of foodstuffs or other trashable things. Everything in my room has it's pile.

    -You are proud to include Jesus and Ghandi, but perhaps not so proud to include Mel Gibson and Adam Sandler, as members of your type.

    My mom loves Mel Gibson. I don't mind him. Adam Sandler has funny books, and I can't live up to either Big J or Ghandi.

    -You don't understand why some people can't "read between the lines."

    Gah! Exactly! I may be blind to the obvious, but at least I'm not blind to what matters.

    -When people wrong you, you retreat inward, and vow to prove your high level of skill and character to them. And with time you do, but most people aren't paying attention.

    Ehhh... being young I still act rashly and get burned for it. I'm getting better though.

    -You can explain the deepest, most unspoken principles behind every occurance you witness, but it takes you a week to finish a day's worth of simple errands.

    Yup. And to the former: Most people don't bother listening and it's irritating.

    -You're not especially popular, but everyone seems to like you because you never start conflicts, and they think you're interesting because you're different...

    I guess. I'm popular with the creepy to semi creepy crowd and the kids who don't really care to fit in or not. Though I'm learning to be more 'socially presentable' in manners and speech (Tact or being quiet. I'm a one-liner kinda guy and it isn't always funny)

    -People tell you the most personal information they're willing to share, and you enjoy listening.

    Not yet...

    -You think all of the popular types who always side with each other are pathetic...After all, you're a champion of the downtrodden!

    Yeah, basically.

    -You're always looking to expose corruption wherever you go.

    -There are many sides to you that no one knows you have and they would freak out if they knew you had them.

    A lot of people see some of those sides... I need to keep them low.

    -You communicate better in writing than you do in actual spoken conversations.



    -You think more people should wear condoms because there's TOO MANY PEOPLE HERE RIGHT NOW!

    QFT!!!
    I agree with pretty close to all of them. I think it's a really nice list to show people who aren't into MBTI but you are pretty sure are INFJs.

    Thanks for the response Skyward!

    Just a note about this list I made, I actually took a kind of unorthodox approach to it. Probably the majority of things on the list are things that apply to me, although not all of them are (for example, I don't idealize everyone...Errr...Anymore.... but I do idealize some people, and try to stop when I do that). However, I figured that since I am an INFJ, and that this behavior seemed to be largely as a result of my personality (at least initially). I figured if I just wrote a bunch of personal things I did that seemed totally INFJ, that some other people on this board might read them and relate to at least some of what I said. And lo and behold, I was right (thanks, intuition )!

    In any case, I wrote it mainly for fun, but I'm thrilled that some people were interested enough in it to reply to every one. I like seeing INFJs share insight, especially considering that I have not met anyone that I knew was an INFJ except for my mother. I'm sure I've met other INFJ's, but I am not sure who they would be. How cool to be able to talk with other INFJ's and read their opinions and insights! Awesome.

    ^^ Yeah, I wish I could find an INFJ I could talk to better. The one I'm currently trying to befriend is always busy (Verrry J) and currently can't get onto Facebook for whatever reason. It's kind of frustrating because I can relate to her mannerisms and such, unlike, say, everyone else I know.

    Yes, but most of the time I don't enjoy listening, especially when it's coming from someone I just met 10 minutes ago. How to turn this off?

    YES! I don't understand that automatic happy response I see most people have upon hearing anyone in the world is pregnant. Has anyone heard of overpopulation?

    I love Adam Sandler - I am VERY proud to include him in my type, besides its just type anyways, not some special club where we deny entry.

    My ENTP friend steals books from our school library if it doesn't have the tag on it...

    I haven't been able to get many Discworld books either.
