Ever since my freshman year of college, I have been absolutely fascinated by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
When I was taking my English-101 course in the fall semester, my professor decided to try something new. She told us that we were going to learn about ourselves, then told us to go to a computer and log in.
I had no clue what we were about to do, but I was very excited.

After we all were sitting at a computer, she told us that we would be taking the MBTI.
A test appeared on the screen and we dove in And thatís when I found out that I was an INFJ. Out of the entire class, only two students tested into this category: Me and a girl named Sharon.
So since we all are interested in the good qualities of the INFJ personality, why donít we look at some of the negative qualities?
What are some of your negative traits, behaviors, etc.Ö ?
Some of mine are:
Whenever someone asks me to hang out, I make excuses that way I donít have to hang out with them( Even though I love people, I need my space).
I am very avoidant.
I rarely initiate conversations.
Dating isnít my friend because I am horrible with small talk.
I donít like being in large crowds unless it is for an out-reach program like a walk for cancer.
Sometimes I go days without talking to people, including friends. (my friends understand this part of me by now)
Since I never ask girls out, theyíll ask me out. And when it happens, I feel a rush of anxiety sweep over me because I donít want to turn them down.
I never understand why they ask me out in the first place. I write for the college newspaper, and participate in out-reach programs, but outside of that. . . I donít really talk to anyone.
I want to have a relationship, but I want to have my own apartment before I do that. I feel like I am passing up opportunities from time to time.
If you were to look at me, youíd think that I hated people because I have a pretty solid stare and it doesnít change much. My exterior image doesnít represent who I am on the inside, in other words.
I can be very hard on myself.
I can be careless from time to time.
Sometimes I overanalyze.
The list can go on. . .
So what are some of yours?
