"I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality." -Martin Luther King, Jr.

A slightly related story:
An ENTP friend called me and said: "Sorry I'm late, but I had to go to the toilet because: 20 seconds of imitated sounds". It was weirdly hilarious, because it was an utterly unexpected reason, so politically incorrect way to tell it and also a sign of him adapting my communicative style (that is, using expressive sounds instead of words).

You know you're an infj when you always feel "elsewhere" or seem constantly lost in though and people think you're innocent or the devil incarnate. You can't be "normal" in their eyes, there is basically no middle ground on a "first impression".(Really it doesn't vary much until someone gets to know you "thoroughly".)Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

My sister and I are planning on making a studio together. I'm the artist; she's the management. And let's just say that she takes that position seriously a lot of the time, if you know what I mean...
And she hates when I talk about MBTI around her. She thinks I'm over-analyzing her, and it really pisses her off
I think the world would be better if everyone could touch each other in a compassionate rather than with hidden implications...
There's too many people that touch in a way that says "I want git with ya." That's intimidating to me, I guess; when I trust someone beyond that, a warm affectionate touch is really nice~

And that has made all the difference."
10-20-2008, 04:42 PM #329Yes. And it gives me a thrill to completely ruin their image of me by presenting my "opposite." It's a good way to weed out who accepts you for you. I've lost "friends" because I went from appearing innocent and silly to saying something incredibly lewd/gross/morbid and suddenly becoming this unsavoury character to them. It's unfortunate. And it hurts. I've tried to learn from them and a) not present another side of myself so suddenly, b) not judge anyone because of something unexpected they do/say.
Though reading this thread I wonder if I have any F at all. I cant read people in the slightest and the personality 'vibe' feels extremely watered down. Though.... I guess it might just be adolescence. Really the only thing I don't connect with is anything with acutely reading people. Practice Makes Perfect situation?
I gotta be an F though, being a T just sounds dry and horrible!'Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.' - Marilyn Monroe

You know you're an INFJ when...
-the world stops when the favorite part of your song comes on...a song that your itunes play-counter claims you've listened to 3957 times
-you see connections between radically different things
-your wardrobe is all black, but your shoes are colorful
-you are one of three people at a Swedish film festival
-you wonder if you will ever see the one you are infatuated with again
-you live in a neighborhood with art, trees, books, and music
-you understand the nature of people but don't know how to be with them
-you know what's around the corner before everyone else does
-you feel most people are transparent and OBVIOUS and their lack of subtlety can be grating
-you are attuned to absurdity in the most mundane thing, and may burst out laughing uncontrollably at the absolute wrong moment. No one else gets the joke
-you feel like when you make a connection with someone, it's for life. Long after they've disappeared, they regularly show up in your daydreams
-you can't inhabit an environment that is unaesthetically pleasing for too long
-you know what you want but you never seem to be able to get it
