I've been a member here and an on-again off-again lurker for a few months now, but decided now was a good time to actually join in for whatever reason. ...I'm not really sure.
I go through cycles were I'm very internet nonsocial and then extremely internet social that usually last for months each at a time. The kind of cycles where I'm either constantly on facebook or livejournal or what have you when on the internet or where I'm playing with the idea of deleting social networking accounts or making my info so sparse that it doesn't even count. Yeah. I don't know what my deal is. My internet social group has consisted of the same people for the last five or so years.
Anywho, I've been aware of my INTJ-ness for several years, even if at first it meant nothing to me. We took paper tests in high school a couple of times in the guidance office. I didn't start getting interested in it until probably the end of my senior year when I forced everyone else who hadn't taken it with me to take an online version of the test.
Now I'm a college sophomore and am double majoring in English Literature and Art History (with a focus on the classical periods). I was going to pursue a minor in French but got fed up with the department. Hmm, I've always wondered, are these life choices unusual for the typical INTJ? It seems to me that most INTJ's pursue careers in sciences or math or computer sciences. Or is all of that just a stereotype? I could easily do computer science I think, but I hate being forced to use the computer and math that isn't geometry or trig totally evades me.
My favorite types that I've been lucky enough to be friends with are INTPs and INFJs so far. My best friend is an ISFP but I wouldn't say I could get along with anyone of her type that wasn't specifically her. I prefer INTPs above all else though because, frankly, INFJs seem a little socially flaky to me in my experience.
...I'm sure none of you could have read all of that, so I'm just going to say "hi" again, and be on my way.
