    Smile Discovering my MBTI

    Hello!

    I am a 23 year old female from Canada. Personality typing is so intriguing to me but it was completely unknown to me until just recently, on New Years Eve of 2010 when I found myself extremely out of place in a house party in a town where I barely knew anyone! I was led to MBTI by someone I barely knew at the time, but who is now my boyfriend (He's an ENTJ and I say this very happily) He sort of nicely corner me with a point blank question "Are you an introvert or an extrovert?" which totally caught me offgaurd. He'd been curious about me for a short while because I didn't say much but he ultimately knew that it was all brewing in my head which was just inaccessible to him.

    Most people who meet me perceive my quietness in 2 ways: she's cocky, overconfident and doesnt mingle cuz she thinks she's too-good-for-us OR they get intrigued, find me mysterious and try to pursue me to open up. On two ocassions I have had someone refer to me as someone "exotic" - which I think it just meant that people can't figure me out. I don't blame them haha, I have a hard time understanding myself. But over the years, it's been a frustrating process for me to be understood in either of these ways and wondered why I was attracting such thoughts about myself when I did even do anything to provoke it. My boyfriend urged me to take the MBTI a few days after that night at the party. I finally came to some revelation with the MBTI. I was typed INTJ and to think it all started at a party! Apparently INTJ's don't do parties (its been true for me). I want to keep learning about myself and keep discovering how INTj's fit into the world and find meaningful relationships. I am really excited to be here!

    Hi Welcome, glad to have you with us. I've had a similar problem as an INFJ being seen as aloof and such when the real truth is that I was very uncomfortable.

    I, too, have my very own ENTJ!

    I find it's not so much that INTJs don't "do" parties as that our mode of interactions at them tends to fall into a very set pattern. We can usually be happy in private conversations with small groups of friends, or especially one-on-one, talking about something we're interested in. If we don't know anyone or there's no opportunity for that kind of interaction, we're generally miserable.

    You won't need to stand alone in the corner here.
