Ambivalence!

East or West?
Good or bad?
Up or down?

Who am I?
What am I to do?

Paralyzed by decisions:
All I do is stand still
With a never ending storm in my mind.

On a value level I often reserve judgement. I often prefer to make decisions late. I tend to be fairly practical about them. Most things are good in some senses and less so in others, and most situations are "somewhere in between".

Who am I?
What am I to do?


I view the self mostly as the state of a conglomerate of heuristics and context at a point in time. It seems to tend to change only slowly. There appears to be some continuity. But there does not seem to be a whole lot of logic, a clear direction, or a true goal.

P.S. Nice poem, BTW. ;)

Wow, this is mind blowing to me. For the past couple of years, I've been feeling that exact same feeling. And I've felt so alone. This is amazing.

I can totally relate too.

I have some thinker in me too, so here's my explanation for why this happens to INFPs.

We have intense value systems. So intense that it's hard for us to grasp that some things in fact do not fit into a value system.

East or West... Good or Bad.....?
Some things don't fit into categories...
How can this be?
