Hey everybody, Iím new here to the forums but not at all new to the INTJ experience. In about a week worth of lurking a majority of the popular topics here, thereís one topic that hasnít really been covered: how we interact with others in a relaxed, social environment. Iíd like to see what our alter-egos behave like.
For me, I found that being a natural INTJ makes me a very boring person, so what I do is dumb myself down a thousand notches and act really stupid, making really stupid jokes when the time is right (Those dumb jokes that are so bad that irony makes them great). If anyone of you guys are familiar with RoosterTeethís Red vs Blue series, a really good example of me would be the character Caboose. People get a kick out of it and socially accept me, and it prevents me from being the depressing, condescending asshole I usually am. The only problem I've endured from this behavior is that nobody really takes me seriously when I go full-on INTJ over a serious issue.
I'm curious, explain to me how do you all conduct yourselves when youíre trying to fit in with more Ďnormalí people, or do you simply remain reserved?
