    I forgot to remark upon this before... but yes... it's quite unbelievable. I used to really like it. But now I feel it puts me at a bit of a disadvantage sometimes. The last few people who opened up to me unexpectedly seemed to then get all freaked out... it made things weird. (I am like a vault with other people's info though. I hate feeling betrayed so wouldn't do that to someone else.)
    Random people...just standing in line somewhere. Maybe they sense that I don't gossip. On the other hand - I could have everything in my life going crazy and I would never confide in anyone except those I know who can support me.

    Even if at times people overdo in that "trust".I'm a human being, of course I'll slip sometimes.
    The weird thing is that if these people are confiding in me a story that involves their interaction with other people I go into skeptic mode. I am acutely aware that I'm hearing their side only. I'm always trying to work their scenario out on how it might actually have gone down and I wonder if this person might have misunderstood what was said, etc.

    Sometimes someone will be telling me something sad, like a death in the family or something, and I have to fight back tears. This is terribly difficult for me because public displays of emotion is something I avoid.

    Also, and I don't know if this is INFJ, I don't like gossip and I never repeat it unless it's from a random person I know I'll never see again.

    I've noticed that hell hath no fury like an INFJ hurt; when my two INFJ female friends were hurt by people they were really close to, they came to me and poured out all that they were thinking and basically ripped those people a new one including telling me so much that they'd clearly been told in confidence.

    I empathised with them but, subconsciously, shared less and less of myself with them out of the fear thay they'd do the same to me if ever we had a misunderstanding.

    Do any of you identify with this?

    Or is it more of a situational thing whereby they trusted me?

    hahaha I tend to take whiffs at people too. Unfortunately 85% (which is practically 100% in my point of view) of the time it is a "not good" smell.

    Also, I tend to categorize people as either rotten or stale (if they are one of those that you can smell by looking at them). One pattern that I am noticing is that usually, females tend to be rotten and males tend to be stale. However, males being rotten is more common than females being stale. This is a theory that I have always wanted to write a paper on, but it is so complicated since the words "rotten" and "stale" in this case are not in accordance to their literal meanings.

    You are INFJ when:

    Youíre talking to someone and they point out that you said a different word than the word you thought you were saying.

    You wonít commit to things because your conscience wonít let you drop out once you are involved.

    You arenít a leader and you arenít a follower.

    Intense arguments between other people make you extremely uncomfortable.

    Arrogant people make you want to slap them.

    You canít think of a come-back remark until long after itís time. Then you can think of a million.

    You are intensely interested in the quirky.

    You feel a little self conscious in a waiting room, at the same time you are quietly observing everyone else there.

    You question everything.

    You are a natural skeptic and slightly cynical.

    You use metaphors without thinking.

    Sometimes you imagine funny scenarios about people in crowded places to pass the time.

    Sitting for a long time in a place with loud, droning noise makes you sleepy but loud noise in general makes you antsy.

    Looking at trees and hearing birds completely changes your mood.

    What do they mean to you then, in this context?

    It is the aura of a person that exudes either rotteness or staleness. Rotten usually accompanies someone who is either on the skinny side or above average side. It is strange. Sometimes it is in a person's mannerisms and sometimes even in the face.

    I will have to think about stale because it is more difficult to capture (not that rotten isn't, as you can tell from my vague description above).

    I guess you'd say I have a rotten aura then. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

    Both of those words have a negative connotation, in normal usage. Is there a state of non-rottenness and non-stale-icity? Or is "stale" the state of non-rottenness?

    Interesting...I think you just made yourself rotten by saying that you think you may be rotten.

    No, I wouldn't say there is a state of non-rottenness or non-stale-icity. It's kind of like, if you are rotten or stale, then you are rotten or stale. If you aren't, then you are just "normal".

    : You view yourself as good and most of your peers as evil.
    : You see the light to helping others- whether that light is true or false is irrelevant- whatever you can do to help, right?
    : You value solitude but at the same time crave social interaction.
    : When you easily make judgments and form opinions on the world.
    : When your answer when people ask you how you made some of your judgments is, "I just know."
    : Even though you think most of your peers are evil (unlike the INFP/ENFP who sees their peers as good), unlike the awesome NT's, you think that you can turn your peers from evil to good- if they believed in the same values you believed in.

    Of course, most of this is out of jest.. but I've seen these traits in INFJ's.
