    Default Questioning infj

    Hello all! I've been a lurker on here for several months and finally decided to become a member and get active. I have always been a self-proclaiming infj, testing as such and really connecting with the descriptions.
    Recently, however, I have begun to question my infj-ness. This started when a friend of mine was describing to another person how we met. He made it seem, and it was, VERY like an esfj. Now, I know I am NOT a sensor, and that it must've been just a way of seeking out new friendship that made it seem as though I am extroverted, but it got me doubting nonetheless.
    Basically, I really want to believe that I haven't been misled (by the descriptions and my own longing to be a cool infj) or fallen into the self-fulfilling prophecy that some mbti descriptions tend to do.
    Here are a few quirks about me:
    I like to think that I am quite intuitive about people and feelings of people. However, I have REALLY intuitive friends that put me to shame as well.
    I am highly idealistic and principled. I have my beliefs, and to an extent, believe that people should follow a similar moral code. This, of course, doesn't translate into religion or rules, but moreso how people should treat others.
    I value deep, meaningful relationships and am very social. However, I love and need alone-time to recharge. Also, big groups stress me out. Smaller, more intimate settings work the best.
    I think and work out problems inside my head. When I come to a conclusion, it's hard to change my mind.
    I act upon my thought processes, but my first instinct is often with my heart. I empathize and sympathize with others extremely easy, but this may also be due to the fact that I am really well versed socially.

    Anyways, sorry for the novel.... I feel like I know you guys already. Opinions, please!

    Welcome. There's nothing about your description that indicates ESFJ in particular to me.

    Hullo and welcome
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?
