This includes Ni, Ne, and Se.
    I can relate to this as well. I also have a constant problem of my Ni battling with my Se. That is, I have vivid long-term visions and aspirations(Ni), but can't even plan for what's happening next week(Se). *sigh* :-/

    Yeah, Se is really the only thing I lack, and it's barely even there at all.

    That's interesting that you bring this up! I'm an artist, and even though right *now* I know exactly what I want to create (however nebulous in the end), it's taken me a long time to get that sort of vision. In the beginning it was all iN fumbling around, which usually resulted in something eerily meaningful, but totally... unclassifiable. And not useful to me. So I worked at it more and more until I named (or at least learned to corral) all the iN forces that were at work... like huskies on a sled team!
    I'm not the only one! Though I prefer to just let Ni run wild. It's easier and it got me a class award for art. "For thinking deeply about his artwork and bringing the class to a deeper level of understanding the nature of art." or something like that.

    I enjoy more rigid plans for art. Say, haiku poetry or sonets, quatrains, et cetera. I enjoy getting to focus more on the content than the shape of the piece, I think.

    You know youre an INFJ when youre not afraid to 'toot your own horn' if you're proud of something

    I plan day by day, but usually I dont go with the plan and go with whatever I'm in the mood for (Unless I HAVE to do it, then I do that first). I try to build up toward the vision in the short term because that's all I -can-do.

    Amazing! I've not posted here for some time, due to getting distracted by other things, just as you said. But today I had a sudden urge to check in and this thread was the first one I looked for!

    You know you're an INFJ when you relate strongly with Odd Thomas, a character enscorcelled into being by the phenominal writer, who HAS to be an INFJ himself, Dean Koontz.

    The series:
    Odd Thomas
    Forever Odd
    Brother Odd
    Odd Hours

    I you're an INFJ and willing to put up with evil themes (As enemies, of course), you'll seriously enjoy the series.

    ( Even if you're not an INFJ, it's still a well-written series )

    That sort of sounds familiar. When planning, I will have a 'separate' plan of action and time lines. The other one works as the sceleton, normally the plan of action, and I have it al planned, thought out and layed down.
    "I'll need x before y, so z can work, and P will be off of my back and my school won't suffer if I add w to it. Since T is likely to react to x, it needs to be done in the afternoon while he is seeing it." The whole thing is build to accomodate some changes. It just so happens that the time scale is often relaxed, since I don't know if I'll feel up to it and when and etc.. "So I'll need to do this within these 3 days and that within 7 days, and xyz when P isn't looking.."


    However problems will arise if I'm suddenly required to use more/better Te. I find that Tiltyred described it better than I did in this thread. I don't know if other INFJs will find it familiar.

    EDIT: I think I ended up describing chart-the-cource style.

    Your message was so true and funny. Do you have an extra spoon? Thank you for sharing.

    You know you are an INFJ when you sense people's double messages---their words don't match their facial expressions or your intuitive insights about their feelings---so you go with your gut feeling about what you really think they are trying to say---that intuitive insightful stuff. And they deny that you are right because they want to keep living in denial as it feels safer to them than truth and reality. So you just say OK and try to find someone else to talk to who wants to share openly and honestly about what they are feeling. The truth will set you free but there is just no helping some people.

    I relate to this although I think I relate more to the 'what are they really thinking?' part than the 'They are totally not being honest' part. I DO, though, get strong vibes, like roadsigns, that warn me about things.

    These people I tend to lay on heavy passive-aggressive pressure. I need to hang around ENTPs more so I can learn their rapier wit (just in case the passive aggression leads to open conflict from their side)

    I also tend to avoid such people when I can. Avoiding takes precedence over passive aggression (Cause I hate conflict)
