hi, i am a 27 year old intj from argentina, but living in europe. i must say that i discovered being a intj not so long ago, had already seen a few shrinks but none of them came up with an adequate solution to my socializing problems, although they did help me with other issues. after getting tested and researching deeply on this topic, i finally found something to relate to in terms of how i feel, how i behave and why people have sometimes a hard time trying to understand me -and why i simply find small talk and unquestioned social rituals stupid!! XD -.
people tend to like me, since i always offer a smile and am in a good mood about an 90 percent of the time. i think this helps me only to be alone when i feel like it and choose to escape to my cristal tower :P
so i am glad to be here, and would love to get to know you. see you around! ;)

Welcome and glad to have you here! A smiling INTJ, now that's an oxymoron! ;D
Where in Argentina were you from?
What took you to Europe?
Has the change been a shock?
I hope that you will contribute to our multi-national, multi-cultural INTJ love-fest! :-* (arrgh, smoochies!)

You will do fine in here, plus in Europe there is alot of INTJ's popping around. But, having each INTJ personality trait, from all over the world is not a bad thing. Its like planting INTJ seeds all over the place, its up to you, if you want to grow your INTJness.

Thought I might sneak in an introduction too...
I am an INTJ, I live in Scotland, 18 and a Uni Student. I wouldn't say I showed very strong INTJ'ness in terms of socializing - I can do it, its just most of the time I choose not too :P . What else, I really really get bored with routines - unbelievably bored, I have discovered the solution is to get as far away from home as much as I can lol
I dont know what else to say

thank you all for your replies,
i was born in buenos aires, moved to spain when i was 22 looking for a better educational environment, got my undergrad -took a year abroad in germany while doing that- and am living in poland right now, getting my MA in european studies -my undergrad major is politics-.
and the cultural shock was not hard at all for me, i was raised in a so to say "european way", my mother is portuguese and i went to a german school, had a sort of german education. so for me coming to europe was a bit like coming back home, i really feel at ease here. :thumbsup:
PS. welcome gavin as well, sorry that fcbarcelona -the football club i'm supporter of- beated your rangers today :D
