People are afraid of showing their true self… I’m not… Therefore, there you go… Me… I’m an ambivert… Or ‘Extroverted introvert’ –> INFJ personality type. Do you know yours? Can you admit the traits? Have you ever been curious about it?

One day I just came across an intriguing article that caught my eye immediately. Something like ’10 signs you are an INFJ’… Had no clue what that was, but curiosity did its job. To be fair, the abbreviation was the one to pull the trigger. First trait – me; second trait – me ; 3rd one – the same – me… So I kept on reading… And getting amazed. Those people really know what they’re talking about. But so clearly? No bit of doubt? Ok, sure, it’s science based, but still…

Anyhow, no room for interpretation on such clear guidelines. It is you or not…

And I kept on going… Till the last one. It’s comforting to understand why you get home so tired after a long day of interacting with others, why you may feel drained, without even realizing it; why you shut off from the world, at times… Or most of the times… That was the point I understood how come someone can be creative and analytical in the same time; why I have a real attraction to communication, but rather have it from behind my phone, than face to face… Though the one face to face discloses things that keypad will never… A real conversation offers you this: reactions!  And, above all, why I am full of contraries, controversy… Why perception can be different: some may see me as the greatest bitch, while others consider I am the sweetest thing…

That was the moment I realized why I’ve been into psychology since high-school. Why people touch my feelings that bad… Why do I like listening to others and comfort them with a great advice and good vibes (so they say)… And why I might suddenly cut someone off if I can’t take it anymore… And mind my own business…

You know… Now I even understood why I appreciate eyes so much… Eyes never lie, as much as you wish! And this is one thing you can trust me on!

People have millions of thoughts per second… But as they take a shape while being written down, your mind gets clearer…

The more I understand, the more distant I get to the outside world and enjoy my own!

  1. I am an INFJ. At first, it bothered me. I wasn’t sure how to receive the categorization of it. Over time, I have used it to enrich and be enriched even more.
