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."

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.

"A wizard is never late. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to." - Gandalf The Grey
And if I only could,
I'd make a deal with God,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems.
- Kate Bush

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.

I have stared into the void, and the void has stared back into me
