    A confronting INFJ

    I know I am a INFJ. I have retaken the quiz over and over because I’m not afraid of confronting someone a couple years ago I wouldn’t go anywhere near it but I love to help people I have learned a in-between to not be too aggressive and not to passive. I do have a lot emotion I sense things intensely all the time. Example: When I’m at foster mom house doing the same routine I usually do I can sense the something terrible has happen - The next day my bio mom will call me and tell me she relapsed on meth. I love harmony and understanding and value Honesty. I’m not a perfectionist either. I am everything else tho. I’m reserved( I don’t seem so in this letter- Its easier to express emotion tho letter) but when I’m with the few people I Love I let them into my crazy world and they accepted me for it so I don’t feel so alone. Understand Situation well. If I feel someones not good I will stay away from them and secretly protect nice people from them if they are around me on a daily basis. I don’t need approval from the world has long as I’m happy with myself and I love making people feel like that to. When I'm around people (without saying much) just by giving my presence I want to give them security and trust. I would never hurt someone on purpose when I know someone getting hurt by someone else [mental/physically] I get defensive. Showing a calm peaceful self to others is second nature to me. I get my anger out by sarcastic or laugh at silly things. I have noticed the INFJ like to ramble a lot.
    My best friend is a INTJ she understands me the most but even she doesn’t know the full darkest side of me but we hang around each other enough to know what each other are thinking, we spend a lot of time together. When we lose commutation things can get ugly between us.

    Can anyone relate?

    People tend to tell me I'm being paranoid about the emotions I'm feeling, but I've learned to start trusting them more. They're more like instinct.

    PS pic needs more smile. Go on, do iiiiiiit...

    People may say youíre wrong but it could just be that they donít what u to know what ur thinking and they would rather say your wrong then you know whatís going on in their head.
    Itís Common.

    I smile but itís rare to get on camera if I smile at a camera it feels to fake an superficial.

    You're the first INFJ I've seen who also reacted confrontationally to different situations besides myself.

    I'm not sure whether I'm a typical INFJ but I relate strongly to some of what you've said:

    If I feel someones not good I will stay away from them and secretly protect nice people from them if they are around me on a daily basis.

    Yes yes yes and yes. I get vibes that some people aren't good. But if I were to tell others, they'd tell me that I'm being too sensitive or illogical. Or that I don't like people. Some people are simply incapable of seeing anything bad in others. So I don't explain my gut feel these days. I try to steer my loved ones away from people whom I don't feel good about. If we have to be in contact with them, I try to foresee possible problems and work around them.

    I donít need approval from the world has long as Iím happy with myself and I love making people feel like that to.

    This is exactly how I feel as well. I understand the need to be liked and popular among others. I think these are good things to have. But it's painful watching how hard some people try in winning social admiration. Many try to be what they aren't. They put up a fake facade and compromise who they are. I can't trust them because they present a glossy flawless mirror that projects what they think you want to see.

    I'm not perfect and I'm capable of behaving badly, even if I feel guilty about it afterwards. I accept that some people just aren't attracted to my personality- and I am ok with that. I also accept that there are some people in the world whom I cannot please no matter what I do.

    Falling in with the masses is in fact something I loathe. Many people are ignorant, intolerant and bigoted. When I look back on my actions, I realise I am sometimes guilty of the same. Though I form my values from my external observations, these are constantly being refined by internal reflections. I try to find a moral compass on my own and I sometimes worry I will get lost, as lost as Hitler was during WWII.

    When I'm around people (without saying much) just by giving my presence I want to give them security and trust. I would never hurt someone on purpose when I know someone getting hurt by someone else [mental/physically] I get defensive.

    Same here. I try not to hurt people's feelings on purpose. But I admit I don't always live up to this ideal.

    By the way, I don't smile much either, even off camera. Many INFJs say they are the same. I don't feel that I have to pretend to be happy when I'm not.

    I am glad to find someone who's so similar to me. And thank you for your kind words :) It was a great comfort for me as well when I first joined INFJ boards on the internet. All along, I thought of myself as strange. It was only then that I realised many people are like me. So I'm normal, just different from most people. Welcome to Personality Cafe, nikkii! I hope you'd enjoy the board as much as I have!
