I appreciate it!

Interesting... [Aug. 2nd, 2007|12:17 am]
INFP Community v2: Lovers, Dreamers, and Me

[Current Mood |blahblah]

I had my close friend humor me and take the MB test this weekend, as our relationship seems strained. I was interested to see what she was, and how that may be contributing to the dynamic.

Come to find out, she is an ENFP.

You would think there would be little to no conflict, but I am wondering if her very,very extroverted side overpowers my introversion so much it is what is causing the strain.

I struggle a lot of times to be able to finish a sentence, as she frequently interrupts. Among other things...

Has anyone else ever has a friendship with an ENFP, and how was it? What conflicts if any did you have, and what positives?

Hi everyone... I'm new to the community. In fact, I joined _infp_ too, perhaps all of ten minutes ago. Then I also saw this community, and of course, I'm here too now. My name is Loren, I'm from Missouri, but I won't really say too much more because I'm sure the majority of you are members of _infp_ as well. :) You can look at my userinfo if you like, and feel free to add me if you think we'll get along.

I'll be seeing you around, of course.

Hey everyone,
I followed every comment with a lot of interest and after much thought and test taking and re-taking I know as well as I consider myself more of an INTP.
Mainly because of some reading on function order and more theoretical study.
So despite having a heavy F and many F traits...I am mostly an INTP
Thanks for your help everyone.

Hello everyone. [Jul. 28th, 2007|01:00 am]

[Current Music |The Vines "Animal Machine"]

Just joined and wanted to say hello to all.

I'm Brenda, 33 soon to be 34, and a almost stereotypical INFP, if I may use the word.

It will be nice to converse with others who are of the same personality type. I wouldn't change it for the world, because I love who I am. Yet it can be a lonely world as an INFP, because people just don't seem to get you. At least, that has been my experience.

Anyway, it is nice to meet all of you, and I look forward to reading your posts!

[Current Music |Well Well Well - John Lennon]

I'm James and I am an INFP mostly....I have a very big T on most tests so I guess I'm in between.
Is anyone else like that?
I don't really have a lot to say about myself so I'll post later.

The Other Types: Your Favorites [Jul. 25th, 2007|03:58 pm]

I know this topic has probably already been posted and for that I apologize.
But I'm really rather curious? What are the types of your Best Friends? Good Friends? Favorite Relative? Boy/Girlfriend?

It seems I'm in a very wide variation with mine.
My boyfriend whom is very loving and seems to completely understand me (the only thing I have a problem with is that he's an avid Republican who can ramble on and on about politics, and I'm just... not interested) is an ISFJ though he's pretty 50/50 on the Introverted/Extroverted part. So we only really share the feeling part. Curious, curious.

My best friend, however, is an ENFP. Very, very similar to myself.
We're completely intuned with each other and often know what the other will say before the other says it. We often seem a little wild and out of control or just plain strange to other people when he hang out together or with others. Buts thats part of how we mix.

I also have a friend who's an ISTJ, my nearly complete opposite and yet I still tend to get along with him. (Though I find many of his views to be misled.)

Personally though I usually can mix with a person if they have either an Introverted Personality or a Feeling one. If they have just one of those qualities I'm set.

What about the rest of the INFP personalities?
Similar feelings? Or am I completely off base?

The Other Types: ESTJ [Jul. 23rd, 2007|08:47 am]
INFP Community v2: Lovers, Dreamers, and Me

How have you found the ESTJs in your life?

As our exact opposites on the MBTI, they're supposed to have complimentary skills and ways of dealing with things to ourselves. The ESTJ has been described as the "business suit"; they're the type whose values and ways or working are supposed to align most closely with the modern business world. What do you think?

My last relationship was with an ESTJ, and at that time we had another in our very close social group. I really loved and admired their sense of optimism and passion, but I found them to be rather self-centred, and the fact that they never seemed to pause for ANY amount of self-reflection drove me absolutely crazy! This seemed to result in them being very inconsiderate of others, very passionate, but extremely fickle; people they hated today they might love tomorrow, and vice versa. I found it kind of hurtful and shallow, because, being E-Js, they tended to dominate, so I felt like I was expected to agree with them no matter what (especially in the case of my boyfriend, who'd sulk unbearably if he felt that I wasn't "supporting" him 100% - which meant completely agreeing with him).
I also found it really difficult to deal with the fact that they seemed to have no comprehension of the fact that everybody wasn't exactly like them, and operated solely out of their "logic" - the sorts of arguments some people mentioned happening with INTJs, where they started by talking about their feelings and ended in tears, saying they were completely wrong and the other completely right, because the other person decided to have an argument about some tiny 'fact' that wasn't completely correct - happened an awful lot with these two ESTJs.
I'm going to stop my own description there, other than to say that my relationship ended pretty badly - my (now ex) boyfriend kept hounding me, screaming "Why?! Why?!" down the phone, etc, because he refused to accept my answer for ending the relationship, that "It didn't feel right and didn't make me feel happy". He kept insisting there must be some other reason - like that I'd cheated on him, or found someone else, or that I thought he was a bad person. Damn passionate thinking types.

lists. [Jul. 21st, 2007|05:19 am]

[Current Location |home.]

[Current Music |not a thing.]

Has anyone, other than myself, ever made a list of exactly what you want/expect in a partner/relationship? I Figured I may not be the only one, considering, it sounds like a very idealist thing to do.

also it really bothers me that i can't find one single person that has every quality on the list, and i look at it, and think that i don't set my standards too high, but other people say i set my standards super high. I just really want exactly what i'm looking for, and settling for something less, will never seem to bring me true happiness.

I'm currently in a shaky relationship with an INTJ , who i do love, but we drive each other crazy with our differences, and he is of course lacking a few things on the list, or he has violated a few things that i would never like to see in a partner (such as drug use) but anyway...

anyone else have these issues? Or am i perhaps crazy?

Some assessment entertainment [Jul. 8th, 2007|08:20 pm]

Some interesting and different tests I found and enjoyed while searching for "archetype" tests:

This one I didn't expect to be what it was testing for, so let me know what you think of it:
Exploring Your Archetype

This one's quite quirky and not too serious but was pretty insightful for me all the same.
Has refreshing graphics. Though that sounds weird to say, I guess I"m really visually oriented so it's nice to have visuals to choose from instead of T/F:
