FYI- I am in my last year of highschool. I am female. I have 3 super best friends I have known since I was very young, but they don't go to my school. I do want to make new close friends.. but I feel as though I have particular needs and standards with people that often aren't met.
When meeting someone new as an INFJ, I can often immediatley predict where the relationship will go. I notice I cut myself off from having casual relationships if I don't think the relationship will bring the desired outcome.
What I really want is for other people to return the favour of taking the time to listen to me and truly understand me.
But.. it is so difficult to reveal the depth of my INFJ knowledge to potential friends, and often I give up trying or don't try at all because of how unusual it sounds, leaving me feeling lonely, isolated and misunderstood. I can't even make sense of it myself.
I am content with having 3 very close friends, but at places like school I feel uncapable of forming new friendships. I am isolating myself, but I feel as though I have no choice.
