It lived in the place we never, ever look, so I wasn't one to complain.
    I would name it at that point. It would be a free pet!

    You know youre an INFJ when people wonder if you have any solid opinions. You can switch sides so easily for random reasons. They just haven't seen your stubborn core yet.

    So true.
    It seems we're able to see all sides and from different perspectives. Ask a simple question...it's not that you don't have answers it's that the question wasn't specific enough...it takes time to try to find the answer they most likely want to hear.
    This is one reason taking tests in school was such a chore for me.

    Right on the stubborn. I don't balk often but when I do it's likely to be my way or the highway. (I love some of these old expressions.)

    You know you are NOT and INFJ when you ..
    Break up after a relationship that was the result of "Bad Timing" and agree with INFJ that things should have never got to where they got..take your responsibility for things not working.. see them take theirs.. and take their advice to make getting better about you and not them.. and then, NOT turning more and hostile as each day passes , Not taking less and less responsibility for how things panned out .. and not accusing the other of "ruining your life"

    You know you're INFJ when you hurt more from the undercurrents than by the remark itself.

    And sometimes you know logically that you shouldn't be upset, you are aware that other people don't think like that and they wouldn't have a clue what you were talking about if you confronted them about it.

    "Don't be so sensitive" can feel like "you are such a weirdo."

    Don't entirely agree with this...in my case anyway, I think there are a lot of areas where I'm very laid back and just don't have very strong feelings either way, BUT when I do have a strong opinion, people are going to hear about it for sure. I think there are some other types that are much more fickle, if I can use that word.

    I do have a habit though of being swayed by very persuasive pieces of writing, ie. on political subjects. For example, I might read something extremely persuasive which convinces me that the Palestinians are the most oppressed people on the face of the earth, and the next week I read something equally persuasive and well written which makes me think the Palestinians don't have much to complain about and the Israelis have only done what they need to do... (sorry, I'm not meaning to start a debate about Israel-Palestine from this!!)

    I just mean that sometimes I don't know what to think when the subject is not one of my areas of expertise, and both sides are highly persuasive, especially in writing.

    You know you are not an INFJ.. when you believe in communication.. and stop assuming that everyone wont understand you.. especially if time and time again they have shown an uncanny ability to understand you..

    I struggle to think of anyone who understands me beyond a superficial level, much less anyone with the uncanny ability to understand me--lol. The people who claim to 'understand' are usually the control freaks who try to mold me into this idealized image of me they have in their heads. The people who understand most are usually those who are willing to accept that they don't, as contradictory as that sounds.

    I hate spiders but I could not kill one to save my life (exaggeration). I usually try to trap them and then throw them outside.

    That's the whole point.. you are already convinced it is impossible.. So where does leave the person who want to understand you so badly??

    I guess I might have been more specific ..in that I understand emotion .. and that includes an INFJ's .. the causes and reasons might be alien to me.. but the result is the same.. and the more I understood (it was confirmed I did) the more vulnerable she becomes.. The more steam the push/pull game picks up..
    the more the alienation grows..
    Is this healthy?

    For myself I really want my causes/reasons, and thoughts, to be *understood*. It's not enough for the person to just empathize/relate to the emotions themselves, I want them to understand - fully - WHY I'm feeling that way, and really get it, deep down. The emotion itself isn't terribly important to me - meaning, it's the root cause of the emotion that IS.
