    Not me. O_O That is if I'm understanding correctly. Are you referring to existentialism?

    If so, then I would have to disagree.

    No idea if it's common. But I do.

    To wedekit:

    I would think he would be referring to existentialism.

    Hmm... something about the world being meaningless except for the meaning we give it doesn't appeal to me.

    That's the common definition of Existentialism.

    Overall it's a philosophy concerning the nature of human existence as opposed to abstract concepts like traditional philosophy. Now what the hell human existence means is anybody's guess.

    The standard division is between "Atheist" Existentialists like Sartre, Heideggar, Jaspers, etc.

    Then you have "Theistic" Existentialists like Kierkegaard, Berdyaev, Marcel, Tillich, Shestov, Buber, etc.

    Naturally as a Catholic I tend towards the latter.

    So would theistic existentialism be built around the idea that meaning in life can only be defined through God?

    To you, life is an echo. What you have once said comes back to you from someone else who had no knowledge of what you said. It makes life seem connected.

    Or in some cases, something I have once said comes back to me from the person I once said it to...and they think they came up with it on their own

    You know you're an INFJ when everything in your house/life has a place and everything is in its assigned place, but your desk looks like it's been hit by a tornado.
    It's a blessing...and a curse.

    True, I also hate to have uninvited guests or people from my family in my room it's very distracting and I get cranky.

    INFJs are like rearranged rubik's cubes. In regards with our relationships with people, everyone is likely to fall one of three categories:

    The 1st type is really bad at trying to figure it out. They work at it for a while, trying to solve the puzzle and make it clear, but after a while they give up or just leave it as is. Occasionally, they may go back and try again, but they never really get it without instructions (and sometimes not even then).
    The 2nd type is excellent. They can figure it out very easily, and can see right through us quickly, or at least quicker than most. However, there are very few people that fall in this category, and they might have a tendency to take their ability for granted or move on quickly.
    The 3rd type of people aren't as naturally inclined as the 2nd, but they take a genuine interest in figuring it out. They work on it, sometimes for a long time, until they figure it out, and they actually enjoy the challenge. Even when they figured it out, it's likely they will still keep warm feelings about the game; they keep it around and are always up for any challenge it throws at them. Eventually, they get better and better, but they always keep the game at heart, at least a little bit.


    As a rubik's cube, I associate best with type 3.
    </random whimsical analogy>

    Very interesting (and not so whimsical)!

    Okay, so which MBTI types would you say are associated with each of these three types?
