    Recently watched movies

    I haven't seen much lately, been very busy. Almost convinced myself to take a chance on "IT: Chapter Two", but upon learning that it was even longer than "Infinity War", I decided to opt out and rent it at home in the future. I didn't love the first one. I just want to see a movie, lol. I've recently seen "Tag" and "The Dilemma" with my HBO subscription. "Tag" is based on a true story about a group of friends who've been playing tag since childhood. I could have done without all the swearing and sexual humor, but other than than it was a really fun movie. I especially loved "untaggable" Jerry's spoof of RDJ's Sherlock Holmes, the way he's shown anticipating his opponents' moves ahead of time. "The Dilemma" is another (alleged) comedy about a man who doesn't know how to handle it when he finds out his best friend's wife is being unfaithful. I actually found it more sad than funny, because I've been in that situation more than once and there is no good way to handle it. You'll be damned if you do and damned if you do (or at least I was). So I guess it just hit a little too close to home, brought up some buried pain. But it wasn't a bad movie, I'm sure I would have enjoyed it otherwise.

    Another good one, seen it several times. One of my go-to films when I just want something light and familiar to pop in.

    GIF Your Mood

    I’m having the worst week. The worst.
  13. Ha, I know what you mean. I was working in a busy urban library and hardly read anything. Still haven't gotten back in the habit, even though I've left the library behind. It's interesting that for you, these experiences have made you more extroverted, while for me, it's what's allowed me to become more comfortable with my introversion. Most of my family are extroverts who don't understand introverts, and generally view introversion as a character flaw. My mother especially was/is always criticizing and shaming me for it, and trying to force me into extroverted behavior. It damaged my self-confidence a lot when I was growing up, and continued to into my mid-late 20's. Part of my learning not to give a crap what other people think has involved learning to set boundaries with my extroverted family, learning to say no, learning not to let their shaming hurt so much, and accepting that it's really okay for me to be an introvert, and not something I have to be ashamed of. I haven't quite mastered it though, I still struggle with it sometimes. Family's opinions can be harder to dismiss than others. Ditto! Where'd you go? I've never really had any reticence about going out and doing things by myself when I want to do them, although I do experience loneliness and wish I had the company of a close friend from time to time. (And of course there are safety issues.) It's going out and doing things with other people that's hard, lol. My N/S has always been close to the middle. Where I've probably shifted the most as I've aged is with my T/F trait. I'm distinctly T, but as I've grown in emotional intelligence and also had more experiences that have broken me personally, I've shifted a little closer to the middle on the T/F spectrum. It's not as close as my N/S though. Probably about as close as my J/P, but my T has given me a lot more trouble in life than my J, lol. While I'm surrounded by Extroverts, I'm also surrounded by Feelers. Other T's seem to be in short supply outside of this forum.
  14. What if you don't look together or feel together? I'm a J, though not to an extreme. But I relate a lot to INTP's (and INFJ's, and to a lesser extent ISTJ's). INTJ isn't a perfect fit for me either, but still the best fit and the result I usually get on tests. I'm not a clean freak, but I like to organize, and I try to stay organized as I go by cleaning up after myself and putting things back in their place right away. For instance, if I'm making a salad and finish up the salad bag, the bag goes in the trash right then, before I eat, and doesn't sit out on the counter waiting to be thrown away. When I take off my dirty clothes, into the hamper they go. Papers are in one or two neat piles, and will stay in a neat pile until I get around to going through them and organizing them into whatever categories they belong in. If I let a mess build up, it will take me forever to get around to it because it just feels overwhelming. I don't mind if other people are messy, as long as it's constrained to their own areas. If their mess starts drifting over into my area, I'll eventually say something, because clutter stresses me out. What's a bit funny is that even though INTJ's are J's, externally they often appear more disorganized, like P's (though some P's are messier than others, just like J's). My most extreme trait is Introversion. I'm about as introverted as it gets. I'm aware of Introvert Dear, in fact I think they have a Tumblr blog that I follow, if I'm not mistaken... I also love Quiet Revolution, though I think their Facebook feed is better than the actual website. (I follow Introvert Dear on FB too, though honestly I'm rarely ever on FB, and basically only have an account in the first place because my mother wouldn't stop hounding me about it, lol.)
