    Personality Cafe

    What if there was an actual Personality Cafe? I wonder if the introverts would have the social skills to mingle with each other. I personally don't know any other INFP's, so I don't know what it's like to socialize with my own kind. I went out to eat tonight with my "normal" friends. I feel like I'm boring to them because I'm not a very good conversationlist. My mind wanders and I don't pay attention to certain details in the conversation. I don't know if I appear as awkward as I feel. But I'm not good at small talk, and I usually just sit there and listen to others speak, occasionally interjecting my thoughts if I feel inclined.

    If there was a real "Personality Cafe" me and surreal would be the waiter and Cryptonia, Trope, and Nephilm can be the manager while snail, Jenn, and lunniey can be the waitress. jkjk

    In all seriousness though, I think us introverts can be great to start conversations with. We tend to listen more rather than openly speak our minds. The problem with us is that we don't know how to keep a conversation going which makes it very uncomfortable for both us and the opposing personality. This is from personal experience.

    it's remarkable what a well-placed ENFP can do for a pack of introverts, though. I have 3 introverted friends here, and we never talk to each other until he comes to spark up the conversation... but once he does, everyone comes out of their shells without even any effort on his part.

    so if it were a true personality cafe, it'd be pretty sweet... but no, I don't think a pack of introverts would really do well together without someone to pump a little life into the conversation.

    I agree. I'm fine with responding to someone else's questions or remarks, but I have to feed off of their initiative. If the conversation goes dead, I usually can't resurrect it on my own.

    Everyone could wear those little "Hello My Name Is" stickers. Only it would say your type. Sounds like a great idea for an entrepreneur.

    haha that would be phenomenal. I'm pretty good at typing people as it is, but it does take a while of talking to them first. Then I can use the information to come up with things they would probably find interesting. That's no real help, though, for getting to know them... and since there's so little overlap between what I care about and what most other people do, I'm not sure it'd matter anyway.

    Still... no information about someone is useless.

    Why do I have to be a waitress? I'm not social enough to be a good waitress, and I'd get really bored with a job that didn't leave room for much creativity. Can't I be part of the live band?

    I'll be a waitress...I mean waiter. I don't have any experience in it though. I think I can be social if the occasion calls for it. And it's not like you have to be a great conversationalist. You just say the same lines over and over again. But I have a bad memory. That could be a problem.
