Decisions May Be Hard For INFJs Because They Have A Tendency To See 8 Sides To Everything

One of the main reasons my INTJ sister and I fight is because she doesn’t understand that I see the world in extreme shades of gray. Whereas for her the world is more a case of black and white, with a little bit of gray somewhere in there, sometimes. Decisions are easier for her, and not so much for me. In fact, this is one of the main reasons why I despised myself for the longest time. I used to think…

INFJs Go Crazy When They Aren’t Allowed Their Time Away From People To Recharge

Recently, I went travelling with my parents and sister to Morocco, something that has been on my bucket list, ever since I watched the movie, Casablanca. Now, believe me, when I say, I love my parents, and sister, more than anyone else on the planet. But, I was about ready to commit murder at the end of the 9 days, because I had spent almost 24-7 with them for those 9 days, except when I was dead asleep to the…

I assumed that I had to…

When We Think We Aren’t Good Enough As Introverts, We Deny A Major Part Of Our Power

Can you think of your introversion as one of your superpowers? Say it with me – I have introvert power. In a world where extroverts are in the majority, introverts are generally treated like the black sheep of the family or the dreaded second cousin who stinks and no one wants to hang out with.  All activities, events, jobs, schools, and societal rules are geared towards extroverts. Making us as introverts feel like we are just a burden, and an…

Introverts May Appear Closer To Extroverts At Certain Times

One of the main things that irked me about being an introvert for the longest time was that if I displayed even a smidgeon of extrovertedness, everyone started looking at me like I had grown two heads.  But more than that, when I started off with new acquaintances, being extroverted, when I went back to being an introvert, I started receiving all of this flak about deceiving people.  I didn’t make you believe anything – I am just being myself,…
