I am an INFJ (introverted-intuitive-feeling-judging) personality type.
My home is my safe place. So I cringe when the phone and the doorbell ring.
I’m not shy, but I may be emotionally overstimulated, overexposed, and overextended in interpersonal interactions with (what seems like) very little warning.
I know things deeply but I can’t always able to put my finger on how. This makes me incredibly stubborn. It also frustrates me to hell and back when I’m unable to explain to others what I intuit.
I hate being corrected arbitrarily. I require evidence.
I remember slights or hurts for a long time and often never bring them up again after I’ve finished processing them. Because I’m sure everyone else has moved on.
I can’t stand conflict because I have difficulty verbally expressing myself under pressure. It’s important to me to be understood clearly and I feel I can’t be without the right words.
I periodically become anxious and have nightmares, usually about my loved ones.
But I maintain a sense of wonder in the face of facts. I love order and classification but still worship the actuality of Life in the face of its improbability. That’s what draws me out and kindles the explorer in me.
