    I was wondering , how many of us INFJs still pursue that "magic wisdom" ?
    Do you believe in it ?
    Do you live your lives by it? Do you have powerful pillars of wisdom of which you are proud?

    I mean, for what I was reading, the majority of INFJ's descriptions was about the "wisdom" of INFJ's too. Also, that they are "old souls", "sages" and things like that.

    The price is high. I was seen weird many times, to deep, to rigid, taking life to seriously and all these things. I always felt hurt deply about this, but I learned to develop a good humor to make it easyer.
    So why not give-up, and start do it like everyone else? Becoming an influential man, having power, influence, money and all the "good things" - ok, I'm actually asking this to you guys....- After all, we INFJ's can do that: we are pretty smart. Isn't this a WISE thing to do, to stop pursue that wisdom ???

    I'm really curious to hear you views ...

    Well honestly this entire post is quite ambiguous.

    Im quite sure if you clarified your question that i could certainly answer it.

    So basically your issue is how you are going to come across to others.

    I'm sure that in your pursuit of wisdom, you'll be coming across ways to help you deal with it so that the problem is mitigated.

    I think the points about both being "sages" and the cost being high are bunk.

    Who's to say INFJs are any wiser than other types?

    Who's to say INFJs are "old souls?" Themselves? I see countless intro threads about how INFJs felt lost or alienated before "finding their kind." I'm convinced that they do this to themselves. Just because you're a certain personality type and supposedly rare does not make you (generically speaking) automatically alienated.

    As for INFJs pursuing knowledge and wisdom, i'm sure many do, some don't. Then again, the same can be said for other types as well.
