The Differences Between INFJs and INTJs

Whew, boy. This is a mixup I see often, particularly because of the oversimplification of the MBTI system and it’s typing standards. In general, it’s much more accurate to type via cognitive functions rather than by going down the list of letters, and choosing one or the other. However, I understand that the functions are difficult to get to know at first, especially if you’re new to MBTI. That’s why I’m going to break it down for you right here.


First Function - Introverted iNtuition (Ni)

INFJs and INTJs actually share their first function, which is one reason why it can be difficult to tell them apart. This function is very broad, theoretical, and conceptual. It looks at the big picture, and is adept at using current ideas, clues, and facts to look into the future. Ni is a function that says “this hypothesis / relationship / invention won’t work out” before anybody can implement them. Ni is also susceptible to “falling down the rabbit hole.” That is, taking an idea and imagining it’s implementation, fruition, and downfall, and overall taking it way too far {btw this is a lot of fun to do, don’t hate.} 

Ni is also great at following through on plans, because it will only pick one to follow. In general, this function will also assist the type in their focus which is typically people for INFJs, and ideas for INTJs. Beware of stereotyping, for artistic INTJs and STEM-oriented INFJs do exist. Do not reduce the types or functions to generic ideas. That is lazy typing. 


Second Function - Extroverted Thinking (Te) vs Extroverted Feeling (Fe)

The second function in the stack is where we have some fun! INTJs utilize extroverted thinking, which is a very authoritative and strong willed function. Te looks at facts, organization, and hierarchal status. Te typically leans towards the STEM side of academia, but it can really succeed in any area, especially if there are medals to be won. They will create concrete goals and place personal importance on success. Moreover, they tend to have a very definitive view of success, such as referring to their GPAs, diplomas, or earnings, though it’s certainly not limited to these things. Te is very persuasive in dealing with people, particularly if there’s a goal to be achieved. Extroverted thinking will have an idea for successfully creating a thermonuclear weapon out of corn {cheap and organic wow}, put together a presentation, and get the President of the US to sign off on the budget. In other words, Te is good at winning. 

On the other hand, INFJs employ the use of extroverted feeling. Fe is a very people oriented function, and not necessarily a feeling function per se {INFJs are so out of tune with their feelings it’s wack.} This is a function that takes in the social setting, doesn’t like to rock the boat, and knows just how to communicate with every person Fe comes across.  This is why many INFJs are perceived to be extroverts, because they’re chameleon-like and tend to do well in any social situation. Fe is very empathetic, almost to an extreme, and will do almost anything to avoid confrontation. Extroverted feeling will also drive the user’s main purpose in life towards the “greater good,” whatever that is perceived to be. Fe is the force behind writing holiday cards, remembering birthdays, and just overall giving people what they need. 


Third Function - Introverted Feeling (Fi) vs Introverted Thinking (Ti)

The third function is where things get a little less developed, for all types. Therefore, these bottom functions can either not be “present” or show themselves in extremes. These are your hot mess functions. INTJs have introverted feeling, which is a function that highly values authenticity, personal morality, and being honest. Fi is unabashedly itself, and can be lacking in empathy at times. Introverted feeling will “say what everybody else was thinking” and be super upfront. When poorly developed, Fi will absolutely lack tact {and politeness oops}. The plus side is that Fi users will stick to what they believe in, even if nobody else does. 

INFJs use introverted thinking, which is a highly analytical, precise, and categorical function. The Ti user will have an exact use and name for everything in their lives. Ti will search for consistency and strength in logic. However, a symptom of having Ti low in the stack is that INFJs can be unnecessarily meticulous in their wording and have a soft spot for weird ass conspiracy theories {yes it’s funny to think Oprah Winfrey and Michael Cera are the same person but why.}


Fourth Function - Extroverted Sensing 

And in the end, we’re back to sharing the same inferior function, extroverted sensing. Se is adept at being in tune with the real world in present time. Extroverted sensing has aesthetic, rhythm, and lots of fun. This is precisely why it’s hilarious to see low-Se users in action. Both INFJs and INTJs are capable of being artistic, dancing, and catching a football. But it’s not something that comes naturally to either type. They’re prone to walking into walls, dropping knives, falling from great heights, and twisting ankles. 


Overall, INFJS and INTJs are both going to talk about how to take over the world with only $20 and trip over their own feet while doing it. The only difference is INTJs will threaten persuade Putin with a very shifty taser, and INFJs will charm their way to getting a list of nuclear codes {the money was spent on mascara, duh}. Ta - da! 

The Angel Is Off His Rocker

Characters: Sam x Reader, Dean, Cas, Jody 

Warnings: language. (I’m horrible at these. If you see something that should be added, please let me know :D)

MASTERLIST 

A/N: This is unedited, so please excuse any grammar/spelling errors. Also, it autocorrects sometimes when I type too fast, so please excuse any weird words. I think I caught all of those, but just beware haha. 

Based on this imagine: imagine going to Jody to vent after Cas says he thinks you are in love with Sam. 


“I don’t hive a crap anymore. Just do whatever the hell you want.” You snapped, slamming the book you had in front of you closed. 

The boys exchanged a confused look for the umpteenth time this week. The truth was you had been having these little outbursts over nothing the past few days, and it wasn’t like you could exactly tell them why. Hell, you didn’t even know why. You were constantly on edge. Everything ticked you off.

Outlander Review, Episode 1x12 Lallybroch

Warning, I’m a spoilery reviewer and I leave nothing out so buyer beware… oh yeah, and this is hella long. Again. Sorry. Not sorry.

Have I ever mentioned to you good people how much I love great characterization? How much I love people on my shows talking to one another? People on my shows communicating, actually speaking words, even if they’re out of anger? How much I love actors who understand who their characters are? How much I love consistency in my characters? How much I love when characters do act out of character, it’s addressed?



Well if not, let me tell you, I love all of the above more than anything else when it comes to story telling, great plots without all of the above just leaves me feeling like what should have been a great meal, just turned out to be nothing but empty carbs. If I’m going to have carbs, I need that sucker to taste good, because carbs can be really bad for my ass and my waistline.


Anyway, yes, it appeared that not a lot happened in Lallybroch, from a plot perspective, but everything that happened, every conversation that was had, moved the story forward, and I was here for it.  A lot of those conversations also moved me to tears, so the episode was brilliant on quite a few levels.  I expected nothing less of course because this episode was written by Anne Kenney, who wrote the quite brilliant wedding episode.
Let me just say, that I prefer these sorts of character-driven episodes, over the plot driven ones.

 
Anyway, without further rambling, let’s begin shall we?


What I Disliked?

1.  That freaking sleeve thing that Claire was wearing when Jamie was telling her about BJR.

What the hell was it? It looked like somebody hadn’t quite finished pulling it up her arm. Yes, I know that many of the garments in those periods weren’t always stitched together, but still, it was hella distracting.


2.  That we weren’t allowed to have a full episode of Jamie and Claire without one of them ending up in danger.  

There’s enough danger coming, I’d have been happier if the show had ended at Claire’s declaration.


3.  That the show ended after 57 minutes instead of giving me the full 60 minutes.


I’m greedy and I now have to wait a full week before the next one airs. What’s up with that mess? Also, there are now only four episodes left, not sure how the writers are going to manage to cram everything in, but I have faith.

What I loved With The Passion of A Thousand Burning Suns

1.  The theme song.



Always and forever amen. That shit literally makes my heart soar and makes weep in appreciation whenever the vocals move in. I’ve mentioned it already, but even as I’m typing this, the tears are falling. Ugh. So freaking good.


2.  I’ve just noticed that all the writers are also co Exec Producers of the show. I love Ronald D Moore. Truly.


3.  The opening shot.

Scotland truly is God’s country isn’t it? So freaking beautiful. Apart from the fact that it’s colder than a witch’s tit, I’d live there any day.


4.  Jamie: “And they just stay aloft like birds


I know I’m not the only one who loved Claire telling Jamie about planes and all the modern progressions. The truth is, I could watch them talk about grass all day and I’d still be like…

Heart-eyes motherfuckers!


Also, how pretty are my OTPs?



5.  Jamie: “How old are you Sassenach, I never thought to ask.”


Oh Jamie, you are so 1744. ( apparently we entered a new year)


6.  Claire: “I’m 27” (Yes I’m pretty sure we were all thinking the same thing, let it go)
Jamie: “Och. I always thought you were about my age or younger.”
Claire:  "Are you disappointed?“
Jamie:  "Nah. It’s just that when I’m 40, you’ll be 245.”


Jamie made a funny! I love him. Have I mentioned how much I love him?


7.  Jamie and Claire getting off their horses when they were still miles away from Lallybroch.


I’m not gonna lie, I’d have stayed on those freaking horses until I got right to the door. Don’t judge me.


8.  The flashbacks to Jack Randall molesting Jenny.



I forgot what a bastard BJR is, and I’m now petrified about Wentworth all over again.


9. Jamie: “There were rumors, that Randall had got Jenny with a bastard child.”

Hush, all children are precious Jamie.


10.  Jamie:  "Do you not think I’d suffered enough after what happened that you must name Randall’s bastard after me?“

Jamie, Sweetie, the kid is right there! Language!

11.  Jenny: ”Randall’s bastard?“



She need not have said a word more. I could tell Jenny was about to blow. This was a hilarious encounter in the book, and poor Claire just stood trying to be anywhere but where she was right then. Siblings fighting is never a pretty thing. I used to beat my brother up regularly when we were kids. Don’t worry, he’s still with us, and we got past our childhood.


Can I just say how amazing Laura Donnelly was here? The freaking tension between these two was amazing, everything was literally telegraphed on her face.


12.  Jenny:

Lol. Poor Claire. I could see the imaginary punch coming from her towards Jenny a la Allie McBeal’s dump truck. (Go look it up.)

13.  Jenny: ”Do I have to do what I did when we were bairns? Grab you by the bollocks to make you stand still and listen to me?“
Jamie: "You’re now trying to shame me in front of my own wife?!?”
Jenny: “Well if she’s your wife then I imagine that she’s more familiar with your balls than I am.”



Hahaha! Jenny’s got jokes!  By the way, can I say how happy I was I was that Jenny didn’t actually grab Jamie’s balls like she did in the book. Also, I’m happy that they didn’t include the slaps too. We got what we needed to out of the scene without reverting to them physically fighting each other.


14.  Ian:  "It’s good to see you Jamie, you always knew how to make an entrance.“


Ian!!


15.  Jamie feels slightly foolish now. Now be a good boy and apologize to your sister.


16.  Ian: ”And this would be...“



Hahaha, Claire’s still salty about Jenny calling her that. As I would be too girl, as I would be too.

17.  Ian: ”You drink whiskey?“
Claire: "I’ve been known to have a glass or two


Hahaha! The understatement of that century I’m sure…



18.  The tension between Jamie and Jenny back at the house though.


Stubborn fools the both of them.


19.  Jamie: “What happened with Randall? I need to know.”
Jenny: “Then I’ll tell you once, and never again.”



Honestly, I could  live without Jenny telling me what happened between her and Jack Randall again. That shit hurts my soul.


20.  Wait, was that Tobias Menzies’ penis?
