YES. This is actually what I'm doing right now. "I can't go to sleep because all this shit to analyze will still be here and it won't go away just because I'll be unconscious for 8 hours or so, so why the hell should I go to sleep now? Need to analyze MOOAAAR." This goes on every night until somehow the issue I'm pondering that month is solved.-You can't go to bed early because you need to stay up later and prolong your "reflective time"...

You know you're an INFJ when...
...people ask what is going on in your mind and you're only able to envision this image but unable to put it into words.

As to my answer, I always say: "I dunno." Same with 'What's up?' or 'How was your day?' and the like.

You don't contribute to a thread, unless you're fairly confident that your post will produce a response and will even delete those which have not accomplished this, for we find no point in throwing our thoughts/feeling out there, without making contact.To die would be an awfully big adventure - Peter Pan

You also get a sick feeling in your stomach when you spend considerable time and energy posting something, only to have it disregarded and ignored. People just continue discussing as if you didn't post anything at all. What the hell was even the point of all that?

I would completely agree if only my own contribution to the threads here was more meaningful and less ignorant.
That's why it's very difficult to join in a new forum. The n00b feeling lasts for a long time and the accumulation of knowledge even longer.
I guess this is what we have to consider with posting. Maybe it is better to let your thoughts out and see what happens. Positive or negative, doesn't matter. What can be learned from this matters. If you're ignored, you can start thinking why. However, you can get discouraged if this happens quite often.
I don't know if it's a good thing that the posts in here are undeletable and even uneditable after a while. From time to time I just get this uncontrollable urge to delete all of my inane ramblings. Ha ha, the joke's on me. But I guess it's good to go through your old posts, be ashamed and maybe learn something from this.

there's this thing i manage to do, not sure how INFJ related it is...
sometimes (not very often) there will be something that i just completely and utterly fail to understand. for example, a geography assignment about wastewater management systems, or something.. like that
i will write out an essay without a clue what i'm talking about, and manage to make people think i understand EXACTLY what i'm talking about. this has happened a number of times
on a particular essay i did the teacher wrote 'you have an excellent understanding of the topic, well done.'
