Usually the quality of the post can be determined by how strongly I feel about the topic.
    Yeh, now you sound INFJ . I do the restructure thing too, but with a different focus.

    Oh yeh, sorry peguy I didn't mean those two sentences to be linked . Bad ENFP habit of changing topics all the time. Was suggesting you're writing seemed clean and structured and INFJ like, not that you were the pinnacle of strangeness . Though strangeness is an NF trait.

    Me too. Sometimes I'll sacrifice grammar in order for it to please the senses.

    Holy shit 54 pages! Well, I don't know if this has been told already but...

    you know you're an INFJ when you buy new stuff and feel that you should explore more of the things you already posessing.

    OR another way to say it is

    you can dislike someone that you admittedly know is a "good person" or a "nice guy".
    Yep. There are so many very nice people whose company I don't enjoy.

    Holy cow. Fantastic description.

It never even says goodbye when it's gone. It just leaves. :steam:
    Those moments are what keep me alive inside.

    Yes. Why is that? I've tried to talk myself out of it, but it keeps coming back.

    Can anyone relate to this?
    I can...but that may just be because I'm paranoid with low self-confidence :P.

    Hey no problem. As you saw, I took it with a sense of humour.

    I get this feeling all the time in regards to the books in my personal library.

    Read the INFP description, and see if you agree with that one. The INFP for this system is Ni Fe, while the INFJ is Fi Ne.

    * I am an interesting, exciting person.(*cough*don't laugh)
    * In order to be happy I need other people to pay attention to me.
    * Unless I entertain or impress people, I am nothing.
    (People pleasing)
    * If I don't keep others engaged with me, they won't like me.
    * The way to get what I want is to dazzle or amuse people.
    * If people don't respond very positively to me, they are I am rotten.
    * It is awful for people to ignore me.
    * I should be the center of attention.(haha..yeah I like, not long though, it's suffocating after a while)
    * I don't have to bother to think things through—I can go by my "gut" feeling.(more of I'll find a way, I'll have an idea)
    * If I entertain people, they will not notice my weaknesses.(sucking up...joking around yes yesI turned a few potential enemies into friends)
    * I cannot tolerate boredom.(LOL!)
    * If I feel like doing something, I should go ahead and do it.
    * People will pay attention only if I act in extreme ways.(I call it "shock treatment", you have to use drastic measures or your point goes completely unnoticed!)
    * Feelings and intuition(it depends, let's not get pony-landy) are much more important that rational thinking and planning.

    I have to say however that acceptance is more valuable to me than attention.

    INFJ:

    * I am socially inept and socially undesirable in work or social situations.
    * Other people are potentially critical, indifferent, demeaning, or rejecting.
    * I cannot tolerate unpleasant feelings.
    * If people get close to me, they will discover the "real" me and reject me.
    * Being exposed as inferior or inadequate will be intolerable.
    * I should avoid unpleasant situations at all costs.
    * If I feel or think something unpleasant, I should try to wipe it out or distract myself—for example, think of something else, have a drink, take a drug, or watch television.
    * I should avoid situations in which I attract attention, or I should be as inconspicuous as possible.
    * Unpleasant feelings will escalate and get out of control.
    * If others criticize me, they must be right.
    * It is better not to do anything than to try something that might fail.
    * If I don't think about a problem, I don't have to do anything about it.
    * Any signs of tension in a relationship indicate the relationship has gone bad; therefore, I should cut it off.
    * If I ignore a problem, it will go away.

    INFP:

    * I am an interesting, exciting person.
    * In order to be happy I need other people to pay attention to me.
    * Unless I entertain or impress people, I am nothing.
    * If I don't keep others engaged with me, they won't like me.
    * The way to get what I want is to dazzle or amuse people.
    * If people don't respond very positively to me, they are rotten.
    * It is awful for people to ignore me.
    * I should be the center of attention.
    * I don't have to bother to think things through—I can go by my "gut" feeling.
    * If I entertain people, they will not notice my weaknesses.
    * I cannot tolerate boredom.
    * If I feel like doing something, I should go ahead and do it.
    * People will pay attention only if I act in extreme ways.
    * Feelings and intuition are much more important that rational thinking and planning.


    I think I relate more with the INFJ side, but I dunno. I think I should take a closer look at them when I have more time.

    Who knows? Maybe we're right. I don't believe that there's anything wrong with thinking that life actually means something. I would elaborate, but I fear that others would be turned off by it being borderline religious.

    Yes! I often buy a new video game, only to decide I should play one I already own first, or some nonsense like that! The same applies to books.
