These are some "insights" from another personality test I took. I feel they are fairly accurate for myself but do other INFPs share these traits? Agree? Disagree? Discuss...

During times of stress or tension, you may withdraw inside yourself and appear as somewhat cool and aloof. You need to be alone when thinking through projects, problems or solutions.

You usually assume a cautious and reserved demeanor when meeting new people. Your relationships must grow naturally and in sincere ways. You will not confide in others readily because of your need for security.

Others showing genuine sincerity and acceptance impress you. You do not like a shallow expression of feelings or thoughtlessness of others. You will get along with most people you meet because you don't cause hostility.

Because of your thoughtful nature, you need others to express sincere interest in you or the relationship. This offers the secure feeling that you seek.

You may be a matter-of-fact person who may be critical of the shortcomings of others who display a more emotional or outgoing side.

Others may see you as disciplined and self-controlled. You have seen the problems of being overly optimistic when planning to depend on others following through.

You may be somewhat reticent and retiring when with others, especially in a large group. As others grow louder, you may become quieter. You value control of emotions, and are more reflective than rowdy.

You tend to listen rather than talk. You may place a premium on display of emotions. As a result, "reading" you at times may be difficult.

You attempt to influence others not by showing great emotion, but by appealing to the logical nature of people. Those who are more emotional and excitable may sometimes ignore your approach.

You are usually astute in social situations because you take little at face value, will listen carefully and accurately, and will watch others carefully.

Because of your need to be quiet rather than rambling, you are somewhat introspective about events and activities. You may not communicate readily and rapidly with others, but this does not mean you don't support others.

Some people may inaccurately perceive you as not liking people. You may be misread by others, because you approach social situations with logic and objectivity, judging others by their competence--you may sometimes be misread by others.

You may want to base relationships on a nonemotional respect for each other's abilities, and base your level of trust on directness and straightforwardness.
