I've been signed up to this since 2009 :O but I haven't been active in years. Somebody reminded me of this today so I thought I would come back. I'm seriously cringing at some of the posts I made haha. It's a good job I don't take myself too seriously ;)

I identified as INFJ for a really long time. I had my doubts and wondered if I was in fact ISFJ. But due to the intuitive bias that seems to infect some of the theory, I settled on INFJ. Who doesn't wanna be the rarest type, right? :D I was about 17 at that time and I was active on here until I was 18.by active I mean I practically spammmed the forum! I am 23 now, engaged to an INFP and I still study typology in my spare time. I have come to realise I am a very clear ISFJ. NOT Keirsey ISFJ. I'm not about to force tradition on you. I just want to feed you pies and ruin your thigh gaps. I wish my INFP waa into typology. He could tell you all how much of a feeder I am *shoves pie in your face to show love*

I still like MBTI and I LOVE enneagram. However....I can't settle on my enneagram type despite my extensive research. I have a bookshelf dedicated to typology books so if you want any recommendations lemme know! I think I am a 6-2-9 but we shall see. I am getting into socionics (I am an SEI-Si) and I am even starting up a socionics meetup group. Well, I will if I stop procrastinating.

My life has been pretty eventful since I was last here. The biggest thing is that I can now leave the house whereas I was stuck in my room before (anxiety and depression). I went back to college to train to be a nurse. I dropped out after a year, which was a brave decision as I felt pressured to stay. I now work as a Peer Recovery Worker. This means I support people who ate recovering from mental illness to go out and do normal stuff in their community. I do thid on a peer to peer basis, as I used to be a patient myself. I find this helps people because they can see I have recovered myself. I run groups such as a craft group, quiz group and I do a bunch of other stuff. I enjoy it and sometimes I can't believe how far I have come. When I was 17, trapped in my room and spamming this forum...I would never have imagined being able to hold down a job where I help people like me. It would seem that anything is possible! :)

I feel a bit uneasy "coming out" as ISFJ. I have posted as an ISFJ elsewhere and been met with prejudice and hostility. I hope it won't be like that here. I think Si is very poorly understood...and Si types in general. If you would like to ask me questions on it I don't mind :) I might accidentally talk about it from a socionics point of view though as that is what I am studying atm

Anyway, I hope you are all ok! :) I'm looking forward to meeting you all.

Yay! And is there still a lot more intuitives than sensors? It was very intuitive dominated back when I was on here.

You have an Aldous Huxley quote in your signature. I love Brave New World. I became obsessed with writing about dystopian future worlds after reading that.

Yeah, not sure if the S's are out in the real life instead of being on the internet, or if people are just mistyped.

Love Brave New World as well, it's one of my favourite books. :)

Hello!! Glad things are calming down for you and looking brighter :) I can't say I had anxiety, but I did go through some depression. I could literally stare at the wall and cry for hours in the same position. I'm recovering, and its nice to see the sun shine.
One of my very best friends is an ISFJ. She is amazing, and little people get to get this close to her world, so I feel honored to be offered a spot in her life-car :D So don't be afraid of being an ISFJ!! We need people that think about others for once :3 if you need an ear, im here!
