who knew such a thing existed?! not me!
until someone found my blog searching for INFJ death stare.
thank you random stranger for finding my blog! appreciate the look, and I promise that if I ever meet you in person, I will restrain my stare.
after doing some research on the topic, I found that an intense stare, looooong, and sometimes angry look seems to be common for INFJs.
we’re both kinda serious types. stoic listeners. and extremely observant. putting all the patterns together in our thoughts. senses are on fire. (sometimes gets a bit overwhelming!)
when it comes to Myers-Briggs, the hub and I both share our dominant function, Intuition. which is introverted – it all happens on the inside…
we are absorbed taking a lot of sh*t in all the time – no wonder the stare shows up!
I think it’s more of a zone out; we’re on a journey on the inside.
the more I think about it, I do stare at people – I’m fascinated by them! what is going on in there, I want to know! what are they thinking…I love making up stories about random strangers.
ran across one descriptor – INFJ eyes are deep – like the soul of the holder is looking through you. cool. maybe.
or perhaps what we see scares us.
after discovering this nugget today, I recalled a photo of me at my corporate day job.
and there I was, wearing the death stare!
and it was at a happy event!
go figure. must be mindful of my external expression of what’s goin’ on inside.
good indicator my mask is not in place whenever people ask me, what’s wrong?
hardly anything is, but it’s usually when I’m deeply focused on something.
and then…someone at @ work this week throws out that I look like Wendy – you know – Wendy from the restaurant.
he probably got the death stare for that…in fact, I’m sure he did, as he quickly followed up with, well, you’re always smiling, it’s great. in fact you also kinda remind me of Pippi Longstocking, she was fearless. and always smiling. just like Wendy.
and then he walked off. still makes me giggle.
that’s all I got for the death stare topic. :-)
sidebar>>>love, love how much there is that I don’t know. yet. for example, I listened to a podcast earlier this week from my favorite Stuff You Should Know guys, Josh and Chuckers, How does the Barbie doll work…frickin’ hilarious. those guys always make me laugh. note to self>>good death stare banishment. vengeance is mine…if you know Barbie…you know what I’m talkin’ about… :-)
sidebar2>>>working on my first workshop for Myers-Briggs Step II! super excited!
ps. also contemplating taking Marie Forleo’s BSchool. this might be the most least thought-through decision I have made in my life, as I will have to decide by Monday…and I just found out about it yesterday. but anyone who says mother-humpers on a Q&A call is all good in my book. seriously. :-)
