Thread: You know you're an INFJ when...

    You are aware of the other possibilities, and yet, you dismiss them because that would mean changing your whole position on a topic.

    You sometimes draw a blank during conversations, while other times you're as eloquent as they come.

    both so true.


    I think that people (especially in political topics) dont want to change their minds because they grew up with those ideas. And if its especially close to their hearts; like their whole purpose in life, they'd rather die than admit being wrong because theyd have no reason to live.

    hope that made sense

    Yeah, it does make sense. Although, I sometimes see it more as, "I'm right, and everyone else should see it too." Do you agree with the drawing a blank thing during conversations? You know you have something to say, but when you actually say it, you start to hear yourself and can't focus on what you were trying to say next. I do that all the time. Didn't know if it was an INFJ thing, or not.

    Yeah, I do that about 25% of the time when I'm trying to explain an idea. I've said this elsewhere before, but, sometimes what I want to say will fly out of my head and I'll completely forget what I was talking about. Most of the time, though, I just lose track of the point I was trying to make and ramble on until I remember what it was.

    I relate to that a lot. And I cannot remember names for the life of me; I forgot my roommate's name today. I LIVE WITH HER.
    Has anyone ever just kind of....trailed off? Like, not even really forgetting, just a pause in the middle of the conversation.
    And I have a tendency to look around when I'm thinking quickly about something, especially if I'm elaborating on something; often times, I'll focus on a point in the distance without realizing it. My sister says it makes me look really spacey...

    Usually if I'm having a discussion with someone on a controversial topic and they bring up a point I've never considered, I'll admit I don't know, then I'll go look it up or buy a book about it and try to get back with them.

    Yep, I'm always drawing a blank. It usually happens when I'm put on the spot or rushed. I tend to trail off more when I'm discussing something I'm passionate about because I get so into it that my thoughts can't keep up with my mouth. lol I've noticed I have a hard time keeping eye contact when I talk with someone for a long period of time. It's almost as if I'm looking around in my brain. lol I don't know.

    Do any of you tend to remember people's birthdays from or conversations with people from a few years back?

    ONLY if I really embedded that in my brain first. It takes a lot to sear a date in my mind, but once it's in, it sticks for a while.

    Yes! Both of these are so true for me. After spending a lot of time with someone I have to get away and get a bearing on who I am, otherwise I fear that I'll just turn into a carbon copy of them.
