You can always tell when someone is authentic and when they’re insincere.
Sometimes you are totally unaware of your surroundings; your outer world can be in complete chaos, but you don’t notice until someone or something finally attracts your attention. (ex. a loud crash)
If there are feelings of sadness, anxiety, or anger in the room, you can immediately feel it—no matter how large the room. (or how great a number of people)
When talking to people, you can immediately see past what they’re saying, and discern what they mean.
Hidden agendas are rarely (or never) hidden from you.
Both praise and criticism affect you the same way; you become embarrassed by the unsought attention.
It’s easy for you to uncover the insecurities and weaknesses of other people, and you can play on them whenever you feel attacked or cornered.
When you like someone, you become attached instantly and scare them off. (This occurs more in romantic relationships than friendships)
When someone betrays you, you forgive easily but are perfectly fine with never speaking to them again. (And you usually don’t)
Sometimes you withhold your true feelings and opinions from someone because you want to ‘protect’ them.
You hate conflict, and avoid it at all costs.
You comfortably slip into the role of mediator when others are in conflict because you can easily empathize with both sides. (See previous)
Once you’ve identified someone as insincere, it is difficult for you to take anything they say seriously—and you usually avoid talking to them altogether because their superficiality is off-putting.
You’re an open book. If you like someone, they know it; if you don’t like someone, they know it.
It is difficult for you to hide your feelings, and you spend a lot of time biting your tongue when something or someone upsets you. (Thankfully, that changes as you get older and your less dominant functions develop; by then you’ve gotten over your need to please others and will speak up when something is wrong)
You’re overly concerned with how you appear to others and what they think of you. (Again, this changes when introverted thinking becomes more pronounced—you won’t care at all then.)
You’re more idealistic than realistic.
Silence is rarely uncomfortable to you.
You feel the need to “fix” every-one’s problems.
You place your needs aside to help others, and they are more than happy to take advantage of that.
If you are a spiritual person, you notice that your intuition becomes stronger as you grow spiritually.
You’re excellent at making observations about others that they didn’t think anyone else noticed. (The usual response is dead silence)
Complete strangers confide their deepest secrets to you because you ‘seem like a nice person’ and you listen without judgment.
