    You wonít commit to things because your conscience wonít let you drop out once you are involved.
    My conscience it very lazy compared to other INFJs. I guess being a Enneagram 9 helps with this. It is very hard for me to start things, but if I'm in an environment of work, it helps put my mind into that mode. If I'm not in that kind of environment, I work in short bursts that aren't all that constructive.

    You arenít a leader and you arenít a follower.
    I'll follow when the leader is trustworthy, and I'll lead if I have to. I'm decent at both.

    Intense arguments between other people make you extremely uncomfortable.
    You mean throwing insults back in forth and the like? Yeah. I try and get out of the room. Or I try and be witty and lighten the mood, but then they just turn their deathrays on me.

    Arrogant people make you want to slap them.
    I totally practiced my backhand when I read that. Throw your body into it, focus more energy on the 'ceps and twist, let your forearm be flung by the force.

    You canít think of a come-back remark until long after itís time. Then you can think of a million.
    Boy do I know that one. Most of my impromptu comebacks are cludgey and really don't work.

    You are intensely interested in the quirky.
    Totally!

    You feel a little self conscious in a waiting room, at the same time you are quietly observing everyone else there.
    I think the fact that you observe everyone a lot makes one think that at least a couple other people are doing the same thing. I know it is that way with me, but usually I'm just listening to my iPod and zoning out.

    You question everything.
    Yup, but only if I think I didn't get it.

    You are a natural skeptic and slightly cynical.
    Definitely. I do NOT want to be misinformed. I hate it.

    You use metaphors without thinking.
    Mhm, it's hard for me to make metaphors otherwise. Then I get too wrapped up in the truth of the metaphor and then it gets too complex to be useful.

    Sometimes you imagine funny scenarios about people in crowded places to pass the time.
    More like, I imagine what their day was like before the moment I saw them.

    Sitting for a long time in a place with loud, droning noise makes you sleepy but loud noise in general makes you antsy.
    I never thought of it that way. Makes sense! I have a fan in my room for that reason, and I tend to listen to loud music. It helps me stay focused, especially if it blocks out other noises that would distract me. Though it has to be well constructed and melodic otherwise it just grates at me until it's turned off.

    Looking at trees and hearing birds completely changes your mood.
    Different environments, period, changed my mood. I love hiking, but I dislike having to go to the trail to do it.


    I noticed I use a lot of 'I love...' and caught myself using 'I hate...' and changed that to 'I dislike...' Hmmm, might be an INFJ thing to soften negative things and heighten positive ones.


    -----------------

    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.
    I tend to categorize similarly, but instead of Rotten I use things like Untrustworthy, Tricky, Not-so-nice, and Sketchy (I love that word, why do so many people I know dislike it?)

    Instead of stale I use Flat, Bland, Very-Hard-To-Get-To-Know, Sallow and Shallow.

    I get so sleepy in airports and cafeterias, they're loud and at the same time the noise just melds into a general din. After half an hour I'm fighting to keep my eyes open.

    Same thing if it's a long car ride and I'm the passenger. This hasn't changed since I was a baby

    You know you're INFJ when:

    You want to fit in but you don't find most people interesting anyway.

    You are meticulous about your appearance and at the same time it doesn't seem natural to you to be that way.

    You are a stickler for details and tidiness at work but you put stuff off at home.

    You take your own car when joining friends to go out so you can leave when you want to.

    Privacy is sacred.

    When planning a trip, you spend almost as much time on the internet researching as it takes to get there. You do as much as you can to keep inconvenient surprises at bay.

    It's overwhelming to make major purchases so you often put them off.

    You are open-minded and at the same time cautious.

    It's not necessarily 'fit in,' but I do want to be approachable. I've never fit in in my life so I've figured I shouldn't bother using the energy to now.

    You are meticulous about your appearance and at the same time it doesn't seem natural to you to be that way.
    I can be, but I don't have the body that is so great for BEING meticulous in my appearance, so I do what I can... Though I find that comb my hair every time I find myself in the bathroom. Even if it is right before I shower or right before I got to bed.

    You are a stickler for details and tidiness at work but you put stuff off at home.
    My home is a land of clutter. I agree, I find that I work better in a work environment. Home is for being lazy!

    You take your own car when joining friends to go out so you can leave when you want to.
    Haha, exactly! Then you feel bad for leaving early, but you know they'll enjoy themselves more without your irritable self around.

    Privacy is sacred.
    Yes.

    When planning a trip, you spend almost as much time on the internet researching as it takes to get there. You do as much as you can to keep inconvenient surprises at bay.
    Mhm, though I'm planning on a road trip with a friend on a couple years. Those things are made FOR surprises!

    It's overwhelming to make major purchases so you often put them off.
    On the flipside, it's all to easy to make 'impulse buys.'

    You are open-minded and at the same time cautious.
    The best way to be

    Ohhhhhhh yes!

    Yes.

    Definately.

    True.

    Yes.

    This thread may may be done, but I wanted to throw out my own two examples that show the dichotomy within this type.

    You know you're an INFJ when:

    You are voted "Most Likely to go to Heaven" in the highschool yearbook
    AND
    You are mistaken for a Russian prostitute while walking outside the casinos in Las Vegas.

    Strange but true.
    I've looked at life from both sides now
    From up and down and still somehow
    It's life's illusions I recall
    I really don't know life at all
