Social interaction. I might do well in person or on the surface of a social networking site (though I might over-extrovert to compensate for my discomfort). But then I go home and analyze. I ruminate over the words spoken and gestures made. Did I say what I meant? Did I miss any subtle social cues? Did I come across the way I want to be perceived? Did that one frown mean she’s mad at me? What did I do wrong? When my feelings are hurt, do I bring it up, or would I lose the friendship? Am I just overreacting? How can I sleep until this is resolved? I generally am just miffed that people like me at all. And for a long time I thought it had something to do with acting “perfect” around others, but if I misstepped, it was all over, no second chances. I have worked hard to get over myself, but I’ve had a long way to come and a long way still to go. I’m so grateful that I now have several friends with whom I can be myself and spend relaxing, quality time without stressing about losing them forever in a misunderstanding. It’s been a long time coming. But even as I write this post, I’m thinking about whether I want to admit any of this and if I’ll be questioned later or if this insecurity of mine will be running through your mind when we speak next . . . .

  1. Don’t we all have this fear? I know I do. Adore you in spite of, and because of, these very human qualities, my dear. You’re brave to share and I so admire your honesty.

    1. “Personal relationships, particularly romantic ones, can be the INTJ’s Achilles heel. While they are capable of caring deeply for others (usually a select few), and are willing to spend a great deal of time and effort on a relationship, the knowledge and self-confidence that make them so successful in other areas can suddenly abandon or mislead them in interpersonal situations. This happens in part because many INTJs do not readily grasp the social rituals; for instance, they tend to have little patience and less understanding of such things as small talk and flirtation (which most types consider half the fun of a relationship).” –
