    Default Merry Christmas INFJs!

    Well if there was any Christmas song written specially for us INFJs(or even NFs in general), this probably has to be it.

    Whenever I'm feeling down, I always play this and it really helps console my soul.

    So here's "Vom Himmel Hoch da Komm Ich Her" - "From heaven on high I come hither", the rendition from the Polyhymnia caduceatrix of 1619.

    [youtube="NSTofPzdong"]Martin Luther - Vom Himmel Hoch da Komm Ich Her[/youtube]
    (singing doesn't start til about 3:10 into it)

    Here's a translation of the lyrics:

    From heaven on high I come hither,
    Bringing you good news;
    So much good news do I bring
    That of it I will sing and speak.

    Today a little child is born to you
    By a chosen virgin,
    A child so tender and fine
    Who shall be your joy and delight.

    He is the Lord Christ, our God,
    Who will lead you out of all distress;
    He will be your Saviour himself,
    Cleansing you from all sin.

    He brings to you all the bliss
    That God the Father has prepared,
    So that you shall live with us
    In the kingdom of heaven now and for evermore.

    So mark now the sign aright,
    The crib, the wretched swaddling clothes;
    There you will find the child lying
    Who will preserve and sustain the whole world.

    Then let us all be joyful
    And go in with the shepherds
    To see what God has granted us,
    Presented us with his dearest son.

    Ah, my dear little Jesus,
    Make yourself a clean soft cot
    To rest in my heartís shrine,
    That I may never forget you.

    Thereby let me be joyful at all times,
    Ever free to leap and sing
    The sweet notes of apt lullabies
    With heartfelt joy.

    Praise and glory be to God on his highest throne
    Who bestows on us his only son,
    At which the host of angels rejoices
    And sings to us such a new year.

    That's neat, Peguy.

    - You know you're an INFJ when using Ti you don't try to disprove an idea, you try to find evidence FOR the idea (And evidence that supports other ideas get your attention too). Unlike INTPs who would rather do it the 'more logical' way and go for the ideas that can survive their mental Hulk-like ability to tear down ideas.

    Basically we're the construction crew and INTPs are the giant hulks from the Rampage game

    Anyways.....you know you're an INFJ when you're consistently are in infrequent contact. This seems to be a pattern I've noticed whenever trying to contact fellow INFJs. I'm lucky to be able to chat with them like once every 5 years or so.

    Really a shame, since those discussions often are pretty deep on a level I don't find when chatting with others. It actually pisses me off at times. :steam:

    Of course I'm not at all an exception to this.

    Dunno my mind likes to float between all the NFs except ENFJ and to ISFP and INtP

    I think it also depends on how easy it is to get in touch with them and how close you are to them. If they're just a friend I tend to call once a week (maybe), if they're someone I enjoy being with I tend to seek more contact. If they use MSN messenger I'm always in some form of contact

    *Cough* Maybe I, uh, posted that to get a few more posts out of this thread?

    - You know you're an INFJ when 90% of your coolest insights to figure things out come out of nowhere. You're very good at improvising. (Maybe that's Se in action?)

    I would attribute improvising to Se+Ni or Ne. Notice that the types that seem to have their perception function external and dominant tend to be the best at "thinking on their feet" to get out of tricky situations.

    I tend to think, by function definition alone, INFJs are probably not very good at improvising as there's a tendency to retreat and reformulate a plan before going forth. It is not unlikely, however, for an INFJ to have reasonably developed Ne or Se and could be able to improvise after much practise or after continually being in situations in which they have no other choice but to improvise.

    As for insights, maybe I am too self-aware, but I tend to have an inkling as to what caused the insight. So it doesn't exactly come from nowhere, but then this awareness occurs immediately after the thought has occurred so it could be retrospective thought-tracking.

    Such insights do come unwarranted and after a seemingly unrelated event, if that is what you mean. But they certainly don't come from nowhere.
