More INFJ stuff

I hope I aint obsessing too much, I took this test last year, but had to write a report lately which used aspects of it, so I've been reading stuff and I'm sharing :)

Of the sixteen type personalities, only about 2% of the population fall into this category, so consider yourself pretty privileged to know me! In practical terms, that means I'm pretty quiet around new people but a wonderful, faithful and a fiercely loyal friend once you get to know me. I usually vacillate between completely serious and totally crazy. I am generally quick witted and full of contradictions such as, I like control, but prefer to be the passenger and the listener. I am very easy going, easy to get along with, and extremely tolerable of most any situation. I'm very attentive and understanding.

The INFJ takes his/her energy from the inner world of thoughts and emotions. He/she prefers dealing with patterns and possibilities, particularly for people, and makes decisions using personal values. 
His/her life is organized on a personal basis. He/she often has a private sense of purpose in life, and works steadily to fulfil that goal. He/she demonstrates a quiet concern for people, being interested in helping them to develop and grow. He/she is good at developing insight into people, though it can often remain unexpressed.

(I) Introversion:
People who prefer introversion tend to focus on the inner world of ideas and impressions.
(N) iNtuition:
People who prefer intuition tend to focus on the future, with a view toward patterns and possibilities.
(F) Feeling:
People who prefer feeling tend to base their decisions primarily on values and on subjective evaluation of person-centered concerns.
(J) Judgement:
People who prefer judgment tend to like a planned and organized approach to life and prefer to have things settled.
Quietly forceful, original, and sensitive. Tend to stick to things until they are done. Extremely intuitive about people, and concerned for their feelings. Well-developed value systems which they strictly adhere to. Well-respected for their perseverance in doing the right thing. Likely to be individualistic, rather than leading or following.
INFJs are warm and affirming people who are usually also deep and complex. They're likely to seek out and promote relationships that are intense and meaningful. They tend to be perfectionists, and are always striving for the Ultimate Relationship.
For the most part, this is a positive feature, but sometimes works against the INFJ if they fall into the habit of moving from relationship to relationship, always in search of a more perfect partner. In general, the INFJ is a deeply warm and caring person who is highly invested in the health of their close relationships, and puts forth a lot of effort to make them positive. They are valued by those close to them for these special qualities. They seek long-term, lifelong relationships, although they don't always find them...sad eh

INFJs are warm, considerate partners who feel great depth of love for their partners. They enjoy showing this love, and want to receive affirmation back from their mates.They are perfectionists, constantly striving to achieve the Perfect Relationship. This can sometimes be frustrating to their mates, who may feel put upon by the INFJs demanding perfectionism. However, it may also be greatly appreciated, because it indicates a sincere commitment to the relationship, and depth of caring which is not usually present in other types. 
Sexually, INFJs view intimacy as a nearly spiritual experience. They embrace the opportunity to bond heart and soul with their mates. As service-oriented individuals, it's very important to them that their mates are happy. Intimacy is an opportunity for the INFJ to selflessly give their love, and experience it in a tangibleway. Match with ENTP or ENFP.
"Idealists" (INFJ) search for ideal love, longing to find the perfect "soul mate" with whom they can share their inner lives
