Hey guys, new to the forum. Thought I'd stop lurking make an obligatory "how's it going?" introductory post, since you all seem like a friendly, well informed bunch of people.
I'm an INFP 4w5, Ne dom if we're talking Socionics, which I like to think I keep under wraps all things considered. Did the whole recluse thing when I was in my late teens, it feels like such a waste considering how fulfilling my life has been for the past few years once I kicked those dark days to the curb.
I've been interested in typology for just over a year now and I'm pretty confident in my understanding of the cognitive functions and individuation, but I still feel as if I have a long way to go, so hopefully I'll be able to understand more the more I talk to you guys. It mainly came out of an interest in Jungian psychology, which I'm super stoked about, as well as just human behavior in general. It's quite powerful really, digging deep into people and understanding them on that deeper, sentimental level and typology satisfies that part of my brain that loves that kind of food for thought. Almost to the point where I'm having imaginary conversations with myself in the car when I'm driving home from work, hoping the car in front doesn't think I'm some crazy dude about to pull a gun out of the glove compartment to satisfy "the voices", haha.
Not much to say really. Work part time as a commis chef as well as an adult carer for a private home. I chain smoke, cook food, exercise and listen to a lot of far out music, anything weird, theatrical or melancholic is usually what interests me the most. Play bass guitar. Love reading, writing and would love to create something of my own someday. Maybe if that pesky Ne didn't get in the way... Look at it, twirling its mustache, reminding me that Steam is having another sale on. I'll get though that backlog someday. Someday...
So yeah, life's going smooth enough for me at the minute. A little bit bummed out over breaking up with my girlfriend of 10 months, but I guess we both just got our own little issues to work on and well... I won't bore you with the details. It's probably not worth it on an introduction post which should be simple and straight to the point.
Anyway, apologies for the wall of text. Nice meeting you all.
