Is there anyone who would call him/herself a social introvert? I am quite shy and very private, however when it comes to communication, social gatherings, or meeting new people I feel like I have no problem with it and I do like to spend my time with others. I am also good at adapting to social conventions of the group so I can usually be quite likeable, even though I rarely let people very close to me.
Any other INFP like that?

My social skills are well developed, thus I never really have a problem with person...in fact...most people seem to like me nowadays. I don't adapt to the social conventions of other groups though nor do I change the way how I communicate with different groups. I remain authentic to myself and I think other people can appreciate that.

I am pretty good at starting a decent conversation with another person, it actually is one of my favorite activities in the whole world. A group conversation is a bit more difficult for me and it takes up a whole lot more of my energy. I tend to sit back and observe the conversation a bit more. It probably makes me come across as aloof sometimes, but I don't mind.

When I only see a person during group meet-ups it is difficult for me to develop a closer relationship with that person, but I guess that is true for a lot of people. It is during one v one conversations you really create a deeper bond and tell each other personal information or have a conversation about a mutual passion.

I am a fairly social introvert - it takes me many hours to psych myself up for a lot of socialising, and many hours to recharge afterwards, but I do have the potential to be quite gregarious when I need to be. A lot of people are actually surprised when I share that I am an introvert, but they don't get to see the introverted activities that I do to recharge.
