It’s pretty rare and accounts for only about 1-2% of the population. My son is different too, but not for the same reason. Colton is fifteen. He’s also autistic with a genius I.Q.

Do INFJ’s Seem Needy Or Clingy In Romantic Relationships? There are times when I feel really needy or clingy, but I try not to show it.

That’s obviously not an easy feat. Yet, I get discouraged if he doesn’t read my mind. To make matters worse, if he’s unable to recognize my neediness, I start to distance myself emotionally.

I may not immediately know why someone is lying, although that will readily become apparent. But I know they’re being deceptive in some way. Whether I acknowledge that … Continue reading How Good Are INFJ’s At Spotting When Someone Is Lying?

How Do I Deal With An Angry INFJ Who Needs Space? If I’m angry and tell someone I need space, the worst thing that person can, do from my standpoint, is to invade that space.

So I try to resolve whatever issues have pissed me off as quickly as possible. But I have to be alone long enough to clear my mind. The longer I … Continue reading Quora Answers: INFJ Personality

Are INFJ’s Emotionally Expressive? Sometimes too much!! As I write this, I’m feeling guilty for going overboard with expressing negative emotions to my fiance. I was pissed off at the world, and at myself, but I took it out on him. I expressed things I now regret, and will probably be eating crow for a while. Fortunately, I’m not always like that. When I’m happy, I can be very loving and express my emotions in a positive way, which I much prefer. There are times, too, that I will completely disconnect from my emotions in order to see things from … Continue reading Quora Answers: INFJ Personality
