INFJ

According to Myers-Briggs I'm one-of-a-kind and only 1-3% of the population is an INFJ.  At first I thought that was a fun fact, but the older I get the more I realize how different I really am.

I – Introversion preferred to extraversion: INFJs 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).

N – Intuition preferred to sensing: INFJs tend to be more abstract than concrete. They focus on the big picture rather than the details, and on future possibilities rather than immediate realities.

F – Feeling preferred to thinking: INFJs tend to value personal considerations above objective criteria. When making decisions, they often give more weight to social implications than to logic.

J – Judgment preferred to perception: INFJs tend to plan their activities and make decisions early. They derive a sense of control through predictability.

I thought about making a facebook account again.

It's been seven or eight months since I've had one.

Sometimes I miss the interactions, but being on facebook sucked a lot of energy out of me.  I didn't know how to put it into words at the time, but I knew I needed a break.  It was overwhelming reading the thoughts, feelings and actions of 400+ people.

Being an introvert, I've noticed how small my circle really is, but I love the people I share it with.
