This is totally me.

“Personal relationships, particularly romantic ones, can be the INTJ’s Achilles heel. While they are capable of caring deeply for others (usually a select few), and are willing to spend a great deal of time and effort on a relationship, the knowledge and self-confidence that make them so successful in other areas can suddenly abandon or mislead them in interpersonal situations.

This happens in part because many INTJs do not readily grasp the social rituals; for instance, they tend to have little patience and less understanding of such things as small talk and flirtation (which most types consider half the fun of a relationship). To complicate matters, INTJs are usually extremely private people, and can often be naturally impassive as well, which makes them easy to misread and misunderstand.

Perhaps the most fundamental problem, however, is that INTJs really want people to make sense. This sometimes results in a peculiar naivete,  …the INTJ will expect inexhaustible reasonability and directness.”

What’s your type? Take the test

I’ve always liked personality tests. I guess its part of that whole wanting people to make sense thing.

    A little bit from mine:
    “ISFJs are often unappreciated, at work, home, and play. Ironically, because they prove over and over that they can be relied on for their loyalty and unstinting, high-quality work, those around them often take them for granted–even take advantage of them”

    “Traditional careers for an ISFJ include: teaching, social work, most religious work, nursing, medicine (general practice only), clerical and and secretarial work of any kind, and some kinds of administrative careers.”

    “Like most Is, ISFJs have a few, close friends. They are extremely loyal to these, and are ready to provide emotional and practical support at a moment’s notice. (However, like most Fs they hate confrontation; if you get into a fight, don’t expect them to jump in after you. You can count on them, however, run and get the nearest authority figure.) Unlike with EPs, the older the friendship is, the more an ISFJ will value it. One ISFJ trait that is easily misunderstood by those who haven’t known them long is that they are often unable to either hide or articulate any distress they may be feeling”

    Some accurate some not. we change everyday and shape our own lives the best way we see fit. Just because you could not do it before does not mean you wouldn’t be able to do it later. Its a matter of persisting right? I know, easier said than done!.

    You are absolutely right my friend. We change every day, adding and learning new things.

    At some level though, I feel that our characters and personalities are set now. What I learn from here in life, whatever new skills and abilities I acquire, they will be learned within the framework of my personality as it is now, and adapted to fit into that framework rather than taking me off in totally new directions.

    I may be wrong. I think deep down I hope I’m wrong. Only time will tell.
