Q
Is there an accurate internet test that tells you what your Myer's Briggs is? I get INFJ or some variation of it, and I want to be at least 80% sure :) Thanks
A

Sadly, most internet tests are not very accurate! :(

What you can do is look up the traits of an INFJ. if you feel like you relate to that, then you can safely call yourself an INFJ!

If it’s a little off try looking up INTJ,ENTP and ENFP, as these three types tend to test and look like INFJ’s too!

I hope this helps!:)


Q
Some how I have ended up with all of my friends being teenaged extroverts, a bit crazy, I know! The problem is when we are out in a busy cafe with loud live music, and they meet other friends who I dont know and have little in common with them) and become hyper, get involved in long conversations leaving awkwardly sitting there watching their conversation, as their awareness of me seems to fade away... what do I do/how do I cope with this? There's only so much polite laughing along one can do...

Hello!

Well, what I usually do in this situation is try to get to know those people better! But if you’re not comfortable with doing that, try asking your friends to help you feel more comfortable! Explain to them how you feel and try to work with them to make you feel better.

You can totallay ask your friends to make sure to include you in the conversation. It’s easier to get along with someone when you’re forced to talk to them!

I hope this helps!!:)

(Also, it seems like my askbox is broken again, so im really sorry if you sent this a while ago!)


My heart goes out to everyone who was hurt today in Boston.

If any of you live in the Boston area, please be very careful, and please stay at home. It’s the safest place to be right now.

Hey, this is the work anon from before. I just wanted to say thank you for suggesting the podcasts. Listening to other people talk to each is a HUGE help! I feel much more sane after my shift!

I always love to hear when my advice works! I’m very glad that I could help you Anon!


Q
There's this ENTP I've known since kindergarten. ENTP and INFJs are a 'perfect match' but true to his type he isn't very emotional and I cant tell if he really likes me. He makes it a point to talk to me after class (we sit on opposite sides of the rooms), asks for hugs/ handshakes, compliments me, runs up to me/ yells my name in the hall/ lockers, and other things. He seems to genuinely enjoy talking to me and laughs and smiles around me a lot. I feel very natural with him. But idk, help?
A

If by ‘really likes me,’ you mean as a friend, then you’re thinking to far into it, he definitely likes you as a friend, if not then he wouldn’t be doing all of those things. ENTP’s are know to cut ties when someone or something becomes more of a hassle than a help.

But, if you mean romantically, I would first ask him to hang out (as friends) outside of class. Then see where it goes from there, and base your future actions on how you feel.

I hope this helps!:)


There was an anon that messaged me a couple days ago about finding their true self

That’s an issue I’ve struggled with myself anon, and I’m trying my best to find the best way to describe how to find yourself

I’m sorry anon, but if you could wait a couple more days i’ll have your answer soon enough!


Q
My new job entails me driving a car for eight to twelve hours and I'm finding it's actually way too much thinking time for me. I need to find a way to exercise my extroverted functions, but I never see people during that time. I just thought I'd see if you had any suggestions. Thanks.

Hello!

I actually just went through something like this! My family and I just drove two days to get to Florida! I’d normally put on some music and just daydream, but I found myself stuck in my head for a little too long, and thing just got bad!

But this time, I downloaded a bunch of podcasts!!! Hearing people talking to each other without your input can help you with those extroverted functions while you focus on driving! 

I personally was listening to the Roosterteeth podcast, partly because it was free to download on Itunes and I do enjoy listening to them. But there are many different types of podcasts out there, so just find whichs ones are right for you.

Another suggestion is to listen to audio books, but I know that after a good book all I want to do is think about the ending and the characters. If you don’t get like that Anon, then go for audio books too!

I hope this helps!!:)


Q
I am so creatively frustrated. I am really creative but haven't found my outlet as yet?! Have no idea what I should do with my life
A

I would just try as many things as possible!! Try writing a story or poem, try painting a picture, or maybe you could mix some music! The only way to find out what you want to do for the rest of your life is to try everything and find the thing you like the most!

I’m so sorry this is late, i was out of town for a couple days! I hope this helps!:)



Q
Hi, I'm an INFJ and whenever I'm with someone who I'm interested in I can become very annoying, talkative, and slightly rude.I hear the voice in my head saying "don't say that" but I do anyway... How can I prevent myself from doing this?

Hello!

I would just slow down and think about what you’re saying! And remember to breathe! I always tell that to my talkative friends when they just keep talking.

Try to let the other person tell you their opinion for a little bit. But be careful! If you don’t agree with them, don’t shut them out. leave them room to argue with you.

(Just a small tip, when you talk to people you don’t know very well, stay away from controversial topics! Ask them what they think about the songs played on the radio, it’ll start a good healthy discussion!)

I hope this helps! :)
