Hello fellow INFJs,

I'm so glad I found you! Yesterday was my birthday and I was feeling especially lonely, not knowing any other INFJs, so I searched the internet, and there you were. I don't know what took me so long to think of that.

I'm in central Ohio, (any others close by?) married to an ISTJ--seemed like a good idea at the time. I have 4 children and I'm an accountant but I stay home with the kids. I can do all that left-brain stuff, but my resting state is right-brained. I paint portraits in oil, I'm learning the violin when I have time, I sing in the church choir, I love beauty. I looooove to read. Sometimes 2 books or more in a day.

My neighbors are NOT INFJs so I avoid all their activities. I mean, if I'm going to be lonely with them, I'd rather be lonely on my own turf without the aggravation. Now I feel guilty for saying that but it's true. Took the Enneagram quiz and I'm a Type 5w4, 9w1, 2w1. Need to look more into that but it seemed accurate.

I'm hoping to make a few friends here.

Accountancy is an unusual job for an INFJ. What do you like and what do you dislike about your job?
Solving the puzzle. (I do have some T tendencies.) It's why I prefer public accounting, because that way you get a variety of clients as opposed to having a position where you do the same thing over and over. The drudgery sucks the life out of my soul!

Welcome!
There's lots of INFJs and enneagram Type 5's on this site. I think you'll enjoy it. Lots of interesting stuff.
I'm a 5w4 9w1 2w1 also, which makes me excited because I'm not sure if I've met any others. :]

Welcome :) INFJ's marrying ISTJ's seems to be a trend actually :)
Really? It's a hard relationship for an INFJ since ISTJs are clueless when it comes to feelings. I find I have to interpret/translate his actions if I want to find out how he feels. If I ask outright, all I'll get is a blank stare! They are rocks, though. Or at least He is. Totally dependable and trustworthy.

I'm so happy to hear that! Sometimes I feel like I'm on a deserted island, 'cause I can't find anyone from 'my planet'.

A variety, but generally informational & fiction. Right now I'm reading one on HSPs, a few on grief (my dad recently passed away), and I'm currently on a paranormal romance kick. I tend to avoid books with painful subjects (I like happy endings!), which is why I waited a long time to read The Hunger Games. Since my daughter wanted to read it I went for it. The subject is appalling but it's well-written and I got sucked in, so I read the trilogy last weekend.

Is that the book by Elaine Aron?

Sorry to hear about your dad, were you close?
