I do not mean this in any way "smartass"....but.. you're growing up. You're looking for more in life.
That IS NOT a bad thing. Don't go all mystical about it, just accept that you are maturing.

Human metrics is a interesting subject and can actually put into perspective the difference's we humans share and make us unique . This first link is to the INFJ type www.personalitypage.com... this is the link to the test www.humanmetrics.com... check it out as it may hold some of the answers for you .peace out :>)
The ENTP personality type is the ultimate devil’s advocate, thriving on the process of shredding arguments and beliefs and letting the ribbons drift in the wind for all to see. Unlike their more determined Judging (J) counterparts, ENTPs don’t do this because they are trying to achieve some deeper purpose or strategic goal, but for the simple reason that it’s fun. No one loves the process of mental sparring more than ENTPs, as it gives them a chance to exercise their effortlessly quick wit, broad accumulated knowledge base, and capacity for connecting disparate ideas to prove their points. An odd juxtaposition arises with ENTPs, as they are uncompromisingly honest, but will argue tirelessly for something they don’t actually believe in, stepping into another’s shoes to argue a truth from another perspective. Playing the devil’s advocate helps people with the ENTP personality type to not only develop a better sense of others’ reasoning, but a better understanding of opposing ideas – since ENTPs are the ones arguing them. This tactic shouldn’t be confused with the sort of mutual understanding Diplomats seek – ENTPs, like all Analyst personality types, are on a constant quest for knowledge, and what better way to gain it than to attack and defend an idea, from every angle, from every side?

Over the past year or so, there has been a lot of changes in me and, consequentially, in my life. I ended a 8 year relationship with someone that loved me but I didn't love them. I was living with this person for 2 years, and we had a stable life. Yet, I felt the need to look for something different, as that didn't feel right. And this is my issue. I have this feeling I need to look for something, something that will make me connect to...huh...something else.
I have a lot of acquaintances, I believe I'm a funny and likeable guy. And people seem to be like hanging around me and talking to me. I am respected by my peers at work, respect that I believe I gained with my own merit. However, I don't have a lot of friends, by my own definition most likely. I have people that are closer, that have known me for years, but I don't feel connected to them. I like hanging out with them, and I will help them and listen to their problems, but that's it. I never share my own things, because I feel they won't help in anyway.
I have love too, good sex as well. I can connect to people in bed, but I still feel distant. I have good looking women that are willing to do things most men would love to do, and I do like them - just never enough to make feel...filled?
I spend money in things and they don't fulfill me. People don't quite fulfill me. Work doesn't quite fulfill me. I still have this feeling I should be looking for something. That I need to do something.
I look at other people with a sort of envy. They live their little lives, not really thinking about things. Or so they seem. It all seems so...small, so tight.
www.yesmagazine.org... when I was at his age it was one of those things I was clueless to and had always put it into a feeling but its much more then that .
