    Maybe it's because you don't have that slightly apprehensive, "I'm lost" look on your face.

    I use this to my advantage when I'm some place where I don't know the layout. I just walk around looking confident, like I'm thinking "oh, don't mind me, just going to the copy machine" and people rarely ever notice you don't actually belong there--unless of course you are obviously dressed out of place. What I'm really thinking is, "Well from the outside it looked like there was a hallway here...I bet if I go left--yep there it is."

    And that has made all the difference."

We place a condition on the type of circumstances that produce certain behaviors that we find acceptable and thank god we happen to fall into the right category. That's a hard way to live.
    ^This is exactly the way that I think. It's why I find it odd when others think INFJs are 'judgemental' as a defining trait. Um, no. Some of the behaviors of others that I've been able to justify personally are mind-boggling to other people. If I can see why a person did something and I can deduce that under the circumstances there was really not a high chance of them doing what others consider to be 'right', I just cannot muster the condemnation that others seem to.

    I rarely talk about it cos the people I've spoken about this with, apart from my brother, just don't get it. They think that it comes from being a random 'bleeding heart'. (There are things that I do hate immediately - e.g. someone powerful and unassailable taking advantage of someone vulnerable.) I'm sure it is born of years of analyzing people to make sense of their behavior and putting ourselves in the mix in order to best understand. I think about this a lot too. Good tangent.

    Yeah, this describes me as well. I learned this from my NLP studies:

    People make the best decisions they can with the resources they have.

    When people make poor choices, it's because they lack the resources to do anything else.

    And I'd get him to swap our places,

    Be running up that hill,
    With no problems.

    You know you're INFJ if you're able to relate to Martin Buber's description of being stuck on a narrow ridge; which means being secure in the absolute insecurity of the ones fate and/or the fate of the universe as a whole. Yeah I know, it makes no logical sense - that's the point!

    You know you're INFJ if you're better at providing paradigms as opposed to actual articulate explainations.

    To put it another way: we're better at showing people how to think certain ways rather than what to actually think. This is probably because we tend to dwell on the generalities of the big picture more, rather than concentrate on the details.

    That fits me so well.
