I am an INTJ male in his mid twenties, a teacher and scholar of history and lover of trees and tree shaped things. I do believe that I have been indoctrinated, in a way, due to some time in a Master's program in education to be more INTP, however (teachers must be open-minded and I have been taught to let go of some portion of my "you are wrong, shut up" attitude). I bring this to your attention because it has become a critical point in my consideration of my own actions: I am no longer sure why I do things.
So recently, out of nowhere, I have come to know an INTJ female who shares values and characteristics with me down to the point where we finish each others' ideas.
A mild example that I am sure most INTJs would agree with: I said to her "You know what I hate more than anything about people?" Her immediate response, not even a pause, "How they're fake?". "Nicely done," was all I could stammer.
I find myself... I should not say, obsessed, but at the very least EXTREMELY interested in this person. I haven't been in a relationship in three years, I haven't even looked for one, but something about this woman just feels right.
Thing is, something about my reaction feels wrong. Why should I feel so strongly for someone? It doesn't make sense. Sure, we share a lot of similarities, but surely my response can't be based solely on that. Perhaps my introversion and isolation has finally gotten to me and I crave any sort of relationship? I find I worry about that often, to my detriment.
Perhaps I'm not INTJ? Then what am I? Nothing is making sense.
