Cut the Crap

What can I say? INFJs tend to be intense, somewhat overwhelming, and incapable of BS. When my wife and I were dating, I came in like a flood. I meant business, so to speak, and cut right to the chase — not as much as the guy in the cartoon, but close.

      • Totally. I have notes from Brian – passed in the halls of our high school – with him saying “I want to be with you forever. Let’s make this work. We’re the real thing.” And then I look at the date on top and it’s like three weeks after we started “dating” (which in the world of a 15-year-old does not entail actually going anywhere!).


      • No, he’s an anti-tech guy. He only made it into email in the past few years. He prefers to hunker down with history books, when he’s not out running and surfing. And playing with our daughter! We balance each other out well in that regard, I suppose; he’d never be online if it weren’t for me, and I’d never live in the real world if it weren’t for him! 🙂


      • Interesting. I’m sort of a techno-phobe. You would never know it. I do all this out of necessity. Well, if he ever decides to tweet, he would have me as a follower and friend.


  1. I have to say, the straightforward, no-game-playing approach is the best. At least everyone knows where they stand.

    I figure my other half is an INFP or INFJ too – he’s never done an MBTI but I’m pretty sure he’s in that ballpark. Which is why I appreciate his openness and honesty.

    BTW, Just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a Very Inspiring Blogger award (you can see the details on my most recent blog post). Keep up this great stuff!


  2. You have no idea how much you illustrations make me feel better about myself. It’s so good to know that someone else has similarities. And i can totally relate to this illustration of course. I have had to learn to cut back my intense-ness, when i am at work and around people i don’t know very well 🙂


  3. Most people say I’m quiet and reserved, but I can turn into an open book revealing too much maybe too soon when I begin connecting with someone. It really is like you said – all or nothing. I have a hard time being fake with small talk. I’d rather be quiet than to avoid talking about what’s really on my mind.
