I go out of my way to avoid speaking with others on a day to day basis. I've been known to just walk away from strangers without a single word exchanged on my half. I dislike expending unnecessary energy for small talk.


    Me old Mam (probable ISFJ) used to say, when I was young, I could be very charming... if I wanted to.

    Everyone's over-rating their social skills.

    I have an ISFP neighbour. Comparing him to me, he's gregarious. He has people come to visit and is a very, very laid-back host that other people like.

    INTPs? Charming? You guys are all pricks. Very willing to offer negative reinforcement if you've Ne'd an "I don't like this guy" feeling about someone.

    As for my social skills, no one comes into my house unless there's sex involved. Outside the house, I hang out and talk to strangers.

    But I'm blunt, easily bored, demanding, and more driven than cheerful when it comes to actual smiling.

    Who's going to have social skills if they're not big on Fi, have an S backbone, or have Fe somewhere in their make up? And this whole topic reeks of Fe.

Being an INTP, I think I immediately connect with an INFJ without so much doing a careful thought. They just do connect deeply, without them realizing it.
    haha, physical attractiveness is not type-related. The INTPs that I've met, I like a lot though.

His world crushes apart every other day and I'm there to pick up the pieces. He takes zero advice from me, but always later admits that I was right (as I was seeing the situation objectively). That pattern is starting to become annoying.
    Ahhhhhhh Yeah, I can see a lot of myself in that. The annoying thing on this end is that people often seem to think we want to be alone all the time. I've rarely got invited to parties and stuff and have heard as the reason "Oh, we figured you wouldn't want to come. You're always doing your own stuff." The thing is, I will always find something to do - boredom is death, but I actually love being included and invited in things and love it even more if there is some opportunity to show off my talents in some way.

    But yeah, my laid-back aloof attitude about things tends to make people think that I don't care whether I'm included in what they're doing, and I'm not very good at expressing that I do care, so the cycle tends to continue.

    Badass. More of us introverts need to learn to do this.

    I have a confession to make. I've done this too. Which is why I get called arrogant. If they have nothing to say that I deem worth listening too, I won't engage.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    I can say I have good social skills. I can get along with many types of people, and for some reason there are always some people who take interest in me. Even when i don't make any moves.

    of course in return theres always someone whos pissed at me for something. Usually they are the typical extrovert feelers. And they try so hard to bring me down or try to kinda pick a fight. But it's too damn amusing most of the times.
    Which even annoys them more.

    i swear i'm a natural born troll.
