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
-you are one of three people at a Swedish film festival, never been there but I come from a tiny country that no one knows of so it's the same feeling.
-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 (ahem that one I'm not so sure of, I think there's much more to people.)
-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:1377:, actually...I don't know what I want, see what habitual people pleasing did to me?Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

I think the reading people thing is a more unconscious process. For exmaple, when talking to someone, I'm aware that I'm trying to read between the lines of what they say and how they're saying it to find out what other things this person could be thinking (and thus unconsciously suggesting). Unfortunately, this is rather unhelpful, when I need to be focusing on what the person is actually saying. I know the main reason I look for these things is because I know that I end up suggesting related thoughts without really intending to while discussing a topic."I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

I've always wanted to have an INFJ manning up session for the ones I know. I just wanted to rent some big six foot eight black dude, have them start a fight with the INFJ and then take a dive after messing up the INFJ a little to make it seem real.
Nah forget it, you guys will probably ask the guy if he is alright after you think you kicked his ass.

When people are talking I don't listen exactly to the words either or I just add them to the end of my equation.
This goes from the clues most unlikely to be wrong to the most likely ones. Basically If someone seems to be dishonest I first take a good look at their posture afterwards their body language then tone followed by the "phrasing" of the words. These ones rarely lie in my opinion and they betray people very easily and finally I add the words a bit later. I sometimes stare a bit at people a bit too long during the process so end up looking either extremely slow or unfriendly.
Usually it works but it's not infallible.
Nah man, not canadian.(Haha this is fun, people will never find out )Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

Reading between the lines? Yes. What is actually said has less value to me than what is said. I just wish I didn't have to focus on it so much in my relationships with others. It turns me off those individuals because ultimately they seem fake.
