Hello all! I've been a lurker on here for several months and finally decided to become a member and get active. I have always been a self-proclaiming infj, testing as such and really connecting with the descriptions.
Recently, however, I have begun to question my infj-ness. This started when a friend of mine was describing to another person how we met. He made it seem, and it was, VERY like an esfj. Now, I know I am NOT a sensor, and that it must've been just a way of seeking out new friendship that made it seem as though I am extroverted, but it got me doubting nonetheless.
Basically, I really want to believe that I haven't been misled (by the descriptions and my own longing to be a cool infj) or fallen into the self-fulfilling prophecy that some mbti descriptions tend to do.
Here are a few quirks about me:
I like to think that I am quite intuitive about people and feelings of people. However, I have REALLY intuitive friends that put me to shame as well.
I am highly idealistic and principled. I have my beliefs, and to an extent, believe that people should follow a similar moral code. This, of course, doesn't translate into religion or rules, but moreso how people should treat others.
I value deep, meaningful relationships and am very social. However, I love and need alone-time to recharge. Also, big groups stress me out. Smaller, more intimate settings work the best.
I think and work out problems inside my head. When I come to a conclusion, it's hard to change my mind.
I act upon my thought processes, but my first instinct is often with my heart. I empathize and sympathize with others extremely easy, but this may also be due to the fact that I am really well versed socially.
Anyways, sorry for the novel.... I feel like I know you guys already. Opinions, please!
