I'm a poet, novelist [yep, a published one, just not famous]. I'm also an artist who does murals for businesses as well as private individuals. If that weren't enough to keep me busy, I'm a teacher, but strangely enough, I draw my energy from alone time, walks through the woods, along the river banks and what not. I almost never attend parties, never do clubs, could care less who's on Dancing with the Stars, or any other popular TV show for that matter. I perfer old movies and a personal DVD collection. I'm a minimalist and only possess the things I need for my career or in order to survive in the physical world.
People often mistake me for an extravert, because I'm a "people" person in that I genuinely care about them and will listen to them and I'm not overly shy. I have never been shy. I just need time to think about what I really want to say before I say it. I often do public speaking and find it easier to stand before a thousand and present my theories than to be alone with one highly opinionated individual. I hate conflict. It gives me knots in my stomach and makes me feel like I'm going to vomit.
I long for deep and meaningful conversations but find that they are rare. I listen to people talk about their kids and grandkids and little league games and how to make potato soup and I smile and lend them my ear, but alas, when I want to discuss my theories on parallel universes, I'm on my own and the only person who will listen is the computer. I think that's why I turned to writing. Keyboards and ink pens, they always listen. I pretend to be a lot less intelligent than I really am, because it's no fun being alone and I hate it when people look at me like I'm an alien.
I know I'm rambling, but I also know that anyone who doesn't want to read the ramblings will just skip over them anyway. haha...at any rate, I'd like to end my introduction by saying that I'm almost ashamed to say that I tested INFJ, because SO MANY PEOPLE ARE THAT. I know that statistics say that only about 1%-2% of the population are INFJ's but as far as online forum goes, it feels more like 70% and then I began to wonder if the test is valid. So, I took it again, and again, and again. I took it in various forms. Once, the day before my dad died, I came out INFP and once a few days ago when I was thinking about the how time is a measurement of motion, I came out INTJ, but the other 95% of the time I came out INFJ. Although my I is only 75% and my J is only slightly a J; it's closer to the midway mark, so obviously there are days or moments when my Feeling goes into Thinking and my Judging slides into Perceiving, but still, for the most part...INFJ.
