Q
i think its interesting that most people who take the myers briggs test are INFJs, but they're the least common type :p im one too

Haha! I think it’s probably possible that INFJs are just a little more vocal about it. Probably because we spend so long thinking we’re weird or different, so when we actually find validation, like through MBTI, we get really excited about it and proud of our type. And I think our type is generally more prone than some others to take a test like that in the first place. :)


Q
I usually get those feelings too, but it's more like looking in the right direction immediately before something happens.

That’s awesome! I’ve never really had that before.


Q
I'm INFP and I'll get that feeling. Like there's knots in my stomach or a nauseousness I literally can't explain or that won't go away. The bigger the thing the worse it gets. Like two days before my father was arrested (we had no idea it was coming) I had like a weird 24 hour bug. I remember saying "I knew something bad was gonna happen" while I was throwing up. It hasn't happened that bad since and I haven't had anything that momentous affect my life since then.

I absolutely believe you. That’s so intense!! I don’t think I’ve had something like this happen, but I do remember several cases of my family being terrified of a crisis happening and me being like, “Dude, nothing bad is gonna happen, I know it.” The only time I didn’t have that feeling was when my dad got in a car accident and before we even knew anything, I was thinking on the way to the hospital, “This is going to change all our lives. Something is very wrong.” My dad ended up being paralyzed after that.

And there were also several times in high school when I would turn to my friend and say, “…I feel like there’s going be a fire drill today.” I still remember the look she gave me each time the fire alarm went off those days lol.


Q
can you give me the link to the test
A

If you go to the blog page, there’s a page on there labeled “MBTI” and it’ll give you the link there. :)


Q
I read that INFJs (my personality type) can get "feelings" that things are going to happen. I perfectly fit the description of INFJ so it made sense that I have experienced random "feelings" since I was little. I was wondering if any other INFJs experienced something like this too.

That’s definitely true, and I can back that up with my own experiences. Most of the time, I just know certain things are going to happen, but it’s usually social, and I only know that because, being an INFJ, I subconsciously pick up certain social cues that others miss. BUT. I have had “feelings” that have ended up being true, and I’ve even had a few dreams that have happened the next day. 

…that’s really weird, and I feel like no one will believe me lol. But yeah. Any other INFJs experience this? Or any other types? 


Q
I just started following your blog and i took the test right away! haha I got INTP! Wanna know a cool fact about INTP's Albert freaking einstein was one! But anyways the very first paragraph i read made my mind blow up.
A

So glad you like it! One of my really good friends is INTP! Sherlock Holmes is also INTP, and being a really huge Sherlock fan, I’m a little jealous of that…;)


Q
I'm an INFJ and I have scars. I try to harm myself every single time I see other people can't accept me as I am. It's like, I'm not a normal person just because I'm different in many ways with them. It sickens me oftentimes. Do you also through this?

I have struggled with depression before, for that very reason. I actually grew up and spent half my life in a borderline cult that shamed people for being introverted or different in any way, and it took me a LONG time to detox from that and accept myself. 

INFJs in general are actually more prone to depression than many other types, but that does not mean that it is inevitable or hopeless. Honestly, it is not something to mess with. Please, please, please, seek help when you feel the desire to hurt yourself, or even when you just feel depressed, because you are worth so so so much more than you feel. Believe me: this situation is not all there is. You will get past this. I did. 

You are beautiful and deep and so valuable simply because your heart beats, and your value does not depend on another’s acceptance of you. You’re an INFJ; you feel so deeply, and this is a good thing, but sometimes your soul feels sick, and your mind turns against itself. But you are more valuable than you feel. 

I know this is kind of cheesy, but in the wise words of one of my favorite bands, Twenty One Pilots:

"Fight it. Take the pain, ignite it. Tie a noose around your mind, loose enough to breathe fine and tie it to a tree, tell it ‘you belong to me, this ain’t a noose, this is a leash, and I have news for you, you must obey me.”

Q
for the extrovert anon: so how each person is different, I can only speak for myself. And I have to say that personal space is very important when you talk with an introvert, because at least I feel really uncomfortable when someone is too close to me, so giving that space is appreciated (:
A

Personal space is definitely important!
