I'm an INTJ. I prefer logic, planning, analysis, predictability, and knowledge. I am not the most humanitarian or altruistic person, prone to saving my charity and help for my very close friends whom I can see benefit from my efforts for people I care about. I value truth: universal truths and simple honesty. I am a technical writer by trade, science fiction and fan fiction writer by hobby. My interests actually run a wide gamut of subjects; I'm the person who knows a little about everything, and if not, I can find out. I can be too rigid in my beliefs, and I benefit from having more sensitive people around to remind me re-engage with others from time to time.
My romantic situation is confusing, but relevant to my reason for being on this forum:
- I am getting a divorce from my INFJ husband (who always seemed like a best friend than a romantic partner).
- I have been in a long distance relationship with a female ENFP for 9 months. We recently added an ENTP to become a triad through a rough series of events.
I'm here to talk to other INTJs, but also to understand the ENFPs and ENTPs better and how we, as INTJs, can best relate to them.
(My username is for Sister Verna, a character from Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series. While not my favorite character, she has always stuck with me.)
And, since my ENFP GF says I should always add smilies because otherwise I come off as stoic, stiff, and/or grumpy: (though I usually look like ).
