Hi there. Iím quite new here, and I can say Iím learning a lot of stuff here just by reading your posts.
Since I donít know very much about socionics, Iíd like to ask your advice. Iím an INTj 5w4. I am very much sure of this (as the description perfectly fits me to a tee), but Iím quite confused because my colleagues, and most of my acquaintances describe me quite contrary to what INTjís are known for. Typical descriptions of me which run contradictory to this stereotype are:
-Pleasant and easy to get along with
-Light-hearted and a bit whimsical
I do admit Iím like these in a social scene and at work; but deep down I know Iím really not like this. I know Iím quite intense, deep and harder to get to know than what everyone else really thinks.
Now, with all this, I just want to ask you: Is this normal for an INTj to ďactĒ like that in some situations? Or am I having a split type personality, which means Iím actually not who I think I really am? In short: Am I personality-confused? From the outside, I think Iím quite acting like an ESFp. From the inside, an INTj. Sometimes, they switch roles when I'm stressed out or feeling unstable--INTj outside, ESFp inside. What the heck is wrong with me?
I really would appreciate your comments on this.
