    , yeah they love to confide...actually...it's "too much information" in my opinion at times, but I really enjoy that.
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

    I (we?) like building bridges with people... also I am (we are?) very curious!
    I'm even better at burning them.

    Better make it a statement.

    You know you're an INFJ when you burn bridges faster than you build them.

    I do and I don't.

    Sometimes, I'm not in the mood. But you'd never know it if I don't want to. Sometimes I don't care and have no problem in letting somebody know I'm not interested. lol

    When I'm ready for it, though, I do like it. I feel it puts me in a position of power/authority.

    Get me one on one with a person and thats when I'm at the top of my game. Thats when I really feel I connect with people.

    I forgot to remark upon this before... but yes... it's quite unbelievable. I used to really like it. But now I feel it puts me at a bit of a disadvantage sometimes. The last few people who opened up to me unexpectedly seemed to then get all freaked out... it made things weird. (I am like a vault with other people's info though. I hate feeling betrayed so wouldn't do that to someone else.)

    I can also be very outgoing (some would say loud) when I'm talking passionately about a favourite topic (MBTI for example). This is not true Extraversion, however, as it is limited to the subjects which interest me and can have little relationship to whatever else is going on around me!

    Well extroversion is only how one gains their energy. Being an introvert doesn't necessarily mean that one is shy. There are shy extroverts, even.

    I myself would be considered an outgoing introvert, which from what it sounds like, many other INFJs would be as well. But we're still introverts because we need that time to ourselves to recharge and we're very self sufficient when alone and don't HAVE to be doing something all the time.

    Extroverts tend to get restless at home easier than introverts. Of course, an extrovert can like their alone time as well. My ENFP sister does.

    Everyone has these traits. Extroversion/introversion, sensing/intuitive, feeling/thinking, judging/perceiving.

    But its where the strongest traits lie that allow people to be typed and how each trait reacts with the others.

    Agreed. I conquered my shyness years ago and now have no fears about speaking up in public or approaching new people. I am only a moderate Introvert, but I do need to withdraw frequently to recharge my batteries. My problem is almost the opposite - I lead an active life and sometimes neglect to claim the space I need for renewing my energies. If I do this for too long I can flip into my inferior mode and become a sorry parody of an Extraverted Sensing type for a while!

    Sounds about like me, actually. But I think I'm still a bit more introverted than you, especially when I don't have my Brothers around for support.

    But yeah, I've conquered a lot of the shyness. I speak up all the time in class and everything. In fact, more than a lot of people.

    And I've definitely had the problem of flipping into my inferior mode. The worst feeling is when you recognize that that's what has happened and you're still in a social environment. Its a total mind fuck.

    Usually, I retreat into instant Introvert mode. I get really quiet and people start to ask me what's wrong to which I always respond, "nothing" and hope they'll either leave it alone or do something that would actually help me get out of it. Of course, I have no idea what they could do. But I since I can't explain it to them, them just asking is annoying to me.

    Its like I'm a car thats just running on fumes. So the only thing to do is turn the engine off, put it in neutral, and push it to the nearest station.
