    So you'd say that your newfound use of impersonal logic is based on externally verifiable standards, and that's why it seems more reliable than emotion, since it's objectively demonstrable?

    And also that this feels much more natural to you and seems to have drawn you out of your shell of privately emotional introversion and given you more control of your life?

    Yeah, okay, that does sound more INTJ than INFJ. I'll amend my read to INTJ.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Yep. Very me.

    God, yes. I feel more like myself than I ever have, if that makes any sense.

    Looks like the INTJs have claimed you as one of their own...and I'm inclined to agree.

    Thanks you all for your input. I'm pretty confident now in labeling myself an INTJ.
