“Because of their strength of intuition, many INFJs report feeling like aliens in the world. One INFJ described her experience as a constant feeling of deja vu. Others report feelings of disembodiment. The fact is that many INFJs (and INTJs) seem to experience the world and their bodies differently than other types do. It is therefore not uncommon for INFJs or others to occasionally question their sanity.”

Someone at work was talking about Quiet by Susan Cain, and sought me out to ask if I’d read it. Obviously she figured it out, bless her, and we talked about it for ages. I was really excited inside that someone else there gets it.
Then I thought about just who in our whole department is an introvert; the vast majority, actually. Most of them pretend not to be, but you can tell it’s a put-on. Of course if that makes life easier for them then all power to them. It’s just a real shame that those who don’t want to talk crap loudly and insistently all the time are not just simply accepted.
But even that one conversation was like a breath of fresh air.
