Why am I doing this? Not entirely sure.
I think I just need a place to keep entries on how I feel about life, the universe and everything.
According to those tests, I am an INTJ and so my thoughts here will probably be more understandable to other INTJ's. Since I have nowhere else to start, topic for today is my thoughts on INTJ...ness.
I – Introversion preferred to extraversion: INTJs tend to be quiet and reserved. They generally prefer interacting with a few close friends rather than a wide circle of acquaintances, and they expend energy in social situations (whereas extraverts gain energy
This is definitely true for me. Any house gathering I throw I love keeping to less than 15 close friends, and any night spent clubbing I feel like I'm making an effort, even when wasted, to socialise with randoms.
N – Intuition preferred to sensing: INTJs tend to be more abstract than concrete. They focus their attention on the big picture rather than the details and on future possibilities rather than immediate realities.
I always dream about how my future life is going to be. I feel like I know how I'm supposed to get there, yet I rarely take the steps towards it.
T – Thinking preferred to feeling: INTJs tend to value objective criteria above personal preference. When making decisions they generally give more weight to logic than to social considerations.
I'm not sure how I feel on this one, it seems like something I do without noticing to be honest.
J – Judgment preferred to perception: INTJs tend to plan their activities and make decisions early. They derive a sense of control through predictability, which to perceptive types may seem limiting.
I plan so much, from possible outcomes in conversations to exactly how I'm going to get somewhere, what time I'll arrive, excuses for leaving if I want to and so on. When in a situation that feels like nobody is in control, I can't help but feel uncomfortable, and spend my time planning some more - for example, "What would I do if [Ridiculous Outcome] happened? Who would slow the group down in a zombie invasion? Who do I trust most to guard my back?"
Despite what this post may suggest, I don't tend to categorize people as their personality types - more so whether they're bogans, arrogant arseholes, friendly, intelligent etc. Someone being a different type to me won't make me dislike them instantly, though approaching them is likely to be different.
Out of thoughts tonight.
