    This brings to my puzzle. I really like listening to music but when I'm asked what kind of music or bands I like to listen, my mind just freezes. I mean, I just can't bring myself to point out any one band that I like the most. I just feel that whenever I listen to music, it depends on what mood I'm in and that again depends on...whatever.
    Saying that I like X kind of feels unjust to Y because on some other occasion I like Y just as much as X. Makes sense, uh?

    I've been wondering if this is just my own inner weirdo at work but can you guys/gals relate to this? I'm not even sure if this has anything to do with INFJness

    Welcome and relax, you're not a weirdo - at least not to us.

    Yes I can't count how many times this has happened to me - where my mind freezes not only when asked about favorite kinds of music or bands, but rather asked about favorites of anything really!

    You know you're an INFJ when you dive and hide when you hear someone coming down the stairs and make a game out of seeing if they see you or not. (Maybe just an I thing? )

    A senso-wha? Are you making fun of me?

    A sensotard just means someone who rarely notices the environment - Most Ns mave sensotard moments. Like Einstein (INTP) forgot to wear pants to a dinner party. Its nothing to worry about, it gives cool stories!

    Yeh, don't worry! Being a sensotard is cool. Normally the more sensotarded you are, the more intuitive you are.

    Absolutely. I do this in my fiction writing all the time. And I love it.

    I started a journal as advised by a therapist I went to. I wrote one page and my soon-to-be ex read it and woke me at 3am to argue what I wrote about him (he's ISTJ). It was awful and I doubt I will ever write again. The only security I have is locked inside.
    I can write my feelings clearly enough, but speaking about them is another matter!

    I kept journals for years and hauled them with me through many, many moves. They run the gamut from philosophical questions to sexual escapades, and I've left instructions that they be burned at my death because I don't want anyone to read them.

    For the last ten years I've been wrting fiction, which is really no less personal, but one step removed since the characters can struggle with all those issues I used to write about in my journals. Nevertheless, I have a hard time having my work critiqued, not because of any ineptness but because it is so personal. My current lover, guessing this, asked to see some of the manuscript I'm working on because he wanted to see "what made me tick." (Shudder.) Mercifully, he's an INTJ and focused on the prose, the metaphors, etc., rather than the emotional motivation of my characters.

    Hehe, I do that sometimes. Just those random bursts of desire to make a silly game out of something when no one else realises they're playing.

    ^^^You know you're an INFJ when you have a picture of a taheen as your avatar.

    Nice one, Kyrielle.

    This gunslinger approves.

    You know you're INFJ if you constantly are amazed and overwhelmed by the inmeasurable gap between your everyday affairs and the insights that swim through your head.

    I notice this all the time, and meditated on this in the latest entry in my blog - concerning how Merton's views of the contemplative life applies very much to my life.

    Forgive me for my shitty description of this; it just seems my inner life is governed by deep insights into the larger issues concerning life and people, and even where mankind might be heading in the next few generations. Yet my everyday affairs are governed by issues that wont matter within a week or two.

    This especially happens whenever I have to return to work after time off. I always get this weird feeling of having to cross from one dimension into another. And as Anja would put it(), I'm constantly straddling between those two worlds.

    It gets rather overwhelming and even frustrating at times trying to figure how the hell these two worlds can possibly coexist at the same time within my life.
