When I went on my first true solo trip to Australia several years ago, I realized there’s a whole other kind of being alone.
I went from being an introvert who placed too much value on what others thought to an introvert who felt more confident and comfortable in her own skin.
I’m an INFP, and I don’t consider myself to be an obsessive cleaner. Despite this, clutter is the one thing that can drive me out of my mind.
As an INTJ, sometimes, I feel not just alone, but like I am the only one who thinks and feels a certain way. The only one who can’t fit into this world.
I’m a highly sensitive person, but without my sensation seeking trait, I would have never seen so many countries or learned how to scuba dive.
Intuitive introverts (i.e. INTJs, INTPs, INFJs, and INFPs) in the Myers-Briggs personality system are often depicted as intellectuals and deep thinkers.
As far back as I can remember, I’ve always felt different. As a kid, I was really quiet and enjoyed spending lots of time by myself.
As a highly sensitive person, at the end of the day, I crave a dimly-lit, silent room – preferably alone or in my boyfriend’s company only.
When I was looking for love, I heard a lot of dating advice that made me feel uncomfortable as an introverted man. “Nice guys finish last,” they say.
If you have an INTJ personality type in your life, there’s a lot that they probably wish you knew. But there are also things we might not tell you.
