let's talk personality types. introverted? extroverted? unsure-troverted? if you know your meyers-briggs type, tell us about it!
i've taken this test multiple times, always expecting a different answer. and every single time, it is the same:
INTROVERTED - thinking things through.
INTUITIVE - perceiving new possibilities.
FEELING - making decisions using subjective values.
JUDGING - an organized lifestyle.
when i researched my personality type, i was surprised to find that INFJs are rare, only making up 1% of the population. by the decriptions i've found, INFJs are extroverted introverts. [this explains SO much!] i'm always thinking and trying to solve problems. i notice things about other people. large crowds make me nervous, and i thrive in intimate settings. but i do like my time alone. i also discovered some other characteristics of INFJs that were interesting:
// INFJs indeed share a very unique combination of traits: though soft-spoken, they have very strong opinions and will fight tirelessly for an idea they believe in. [this is so very true.]
// popular hobbies include writing, art appreciation, reading, socializing in small intimate settings, listening or playing music, and blogging. [okay, the last one wasn't on the list, but it's true for me.]
// INFJs find themselves caught between the desire to express their wealth of feeling and moral conclusions about the actions and attitude of others, and the awareness of the consequences of unbridled candor. [basically my life - i'm always trying to help.]
// personal values include spirituality, learning, and community service. [yep.]
// commonly found in careers of religion, counseling, teaching, and the arts. [well, i'm a bookkeeper, but i do work with the youth at church, so it's basically true.]
// perhaps more than anything, they love spending time engrossed in meaningful conversation, which allows them to simultaneously engage their Ni and Fe functions. talking affords INFJs the opportunity to help and enlighten others through their insights. because of this, they are often mistaken for extroverts.

famous INFJ celebrities:
nathan (prophet of israel), martin luther king, jr., jerry seinfeld, nelson mandela, mark harmon, and ross geller... i mean, david schwimmer.

and to all my fellow INFJs - you'll find this funny and true.
