As I've got to know more and more people, I've come to realize something that rather disturbed me. This could just be my interpretation, but does anyone else get the impression that some others, in particular INXXs, are frightened by our bubbly, exuberant "confidence"?
I put 'confidence' in inverted commas because often my apparent confidence is just that; a display. The reality is that I'm actually rather shy and insecure... I just like to make other people feel at ease.
Since beginning my art course, I've met a couple of INTX guys (the guy I'm seeing now is most likely an INTJ). I found they appeared to be drawn to me, but in the way that they kind of watched me from afar with quiet awe- if I hadn't approached them first, they wouldn't have spoken to me. I find this somewhat flattering, but also kind of unnerving due to what I was always told- that it should be the guy who initiates everything. And to be honest, the thought of appearing "frightening/unapproachable" to people, especially guys, is upsetting. I want people to feel like they can come talk to me whenever they want- I don't bite, I swear!
