    Default Another new INTJ

    Hi, I'm a new INTJ.

    I wonder if it's a type trait that we suck at introducing ourselves in forums. I certainly do.

    A bit about myself: I am a 27-year-old female living in Denver. I'm a student (still) and am about to get my bachelor's degree in May.

    My tag is Mendacity, which means dishonesty or two-facedness (is that a word?). I chose it when I was 17 because my real name means truthful and I thought it was kind of funny. It just kinda stuck.
    I am actually a very honest person and I take honesty (both in myself nd in others) very seriously.

    I took the Myers-Briggs test for a class. When I researched my type I thought it was incredibly accurate and explained traits of my personality that I had always caused me to feel alienated from other people and wonder what the hell was wrong with me and why I couldn't just be normal.
    I read a lot of forum posts for other female INTJs and they seemed to be having the same reaction. I mention the females specifically (although there were lots of posts like that from males as well) because female INTJs are apparently incredibly rare and are not "typical" girls.

    So yeah, that's me. Hi, nice to meet everyone.
    I should also maybe mention that I can also be very loquacious. I apologize for that in advance. :redface:

    It's better than being magniloquent. But then, I don't apologize for that. By all means, expound.

    Jeez...I'm facing too much world-dominating competition around here...

    Oh, and welcome to the Reich!

    Hello there. I have a fondness for INTJs, so I encourage you not to feel "wrong." If fact, I wish there were more of your type.

    Another female INTJ... Amazing.

    I thought I met the only one I'd ever come in contact with a couple years ago, but it turns out there are more about!

    Welcome. I, too, find introductions difficult.

    Welcome! I'm looking forward to you contributing to the boards. (I'm also pretty talkative, too.)


    (I am soo psyched that we have another INTJ female to gather data from and dig through... Where's Economica, Nat and NPG? INTJ female information-gathering-party!!)



    (Are there any others I am missing? I thought we had more. Or maybe it's just because I feel right at home with the boys.)

    INTJ's are not "typical" anything regardless of whether they are male or female. That's why I love INTJ's though. I always find the unusual much more interesting than the usual.

    Welcome!
    check out the biochem dept. at your school. i went to my first lecture for organic chem last year; it was a total "this is me except she's 40-something!"

    i have one friend who is INTJ but she suffers from depression/other things in her life which make it difficult for me to really feel I can relate. (i mean, i totally can in some ways, but her shadows on top of her personality make it hard)

    and i've met two males.
