Quest of friendship [Apr. 20th, 2015|10:42 pm]
INFP Community v2: Lovers, Dreamers, and Me

I have always found it very in-fulfilling to communicate with people that don't have similar prospective of life and things. As a child I have always stayed isolated (not very close to others) until I met few similar minded people in mid school. After those years of meaningful happy interactions, I find myself in this lager world having no soul to communicate with as barely anybody(other personality types) get what I mean. So, I've nobody to share my thoughts.
I wish meeting some like minded people ahead but yet sometimes it feels very improbable.
I would be glad if others shared their ways of dealing with this, something very likely to be a part of INFP life.

Thank you for replying.

Career Paths [Feb. 19th, 2009|04:19 am]
INFP Community v2: Lovers, Dreamers, and Me


I'm curious about what everyone in this community does in terms of occupation, what everyone here is pursuing to be or have thought of becoming.

I'm so curious.

I kind of recently just figured out that I was an INFP, and it's amazing how accurate the analyses were. And then, I found out that most of the occupations in the career list of an INFP were ones that I really wanted to pursue, but didn't. I'm in advertising now, but I wish I could have had this list to encourage me to keep pursuing psychology and writing.

What kind of music do you like to listen to? [Jan. 4th, 2009|04:26 am]
INFP Community v2: Lovers, Dreamers, and Me

[Current Music |David Bowie - Black Tie/White Noise, album]

I wonder if there are any patterns or similarities by personality type.

My tastes are very broad, but I've always had a fondness for music without words or even ones in languages which I couldn't understand. Music from previous decades too. It let my mind wander. Modern music seldom catches my attention, particularly lately. Growing up I found this pattern to be highly unusual and never knew anyone my own age with similar tastes.

Current favorites tend to be of the elctro or jazz variety; although I look for new sounds on a regular basis, running the gamut from classical to dark metal. By the way, If you'd like to make a friend, these are my music accounts:

INFP Icons & Phrases [Jan. 2nd, 2009|10:35 am]
INFP Community v2: Lovers, Dreamers, and Me

[Current Music |The Conductor (Thin White Duke) - The Faint]

Introspection invites insight, clarity, understanding.
When we explore our inner landscape, our dreams blossom with promise.
When we journey inward, we honor the most unique aspects of who we are.
Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside wakes.
Solitude is the nest of thought.

Are any of you INFPs who act more like a different type when you're at work?

I'm a journalist and I am extremely good at talking with people I've never met, being outgoing and just generally very extroverted, despite being a happy introvert at home on my own time.

Also, bringing up a discussion a friend and I had not long ago, do you think that there are "healthy" and "unhealthy" types of INFPs, or of any MBTI type, the way there are healthy or unhealthy levels along the enneagram?

I just wanted to share a poem I wrote today... [Jun. 1st, 2008|03:53 pm]
INFP Community v2: Lovers, Dreamers, and Me

[Current Mood |thoughtfulthoughtful]


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.

suggestions...? [May. 20th, 2008|04:53 pm]

coping skills for when you feel chronically alone, empty, dead inside, thoroughly uninspired and unaroused by life?

Obama is probably an INFP [Apr. 8th, 2008|09:58 am]
INFP Community v2: Lovers, Dreamers, and Me

I've been studying our President-to-be Barack Obama, and although I often avoid trying to type people I haven't met, he seems to have very clear INFP preferences.  I just finished reading his first book, Dreams From My Father, and it seems like a classic INFP journey for inner harmony and emotional integration (a very good read too, BTW). 

On March 18 he gave a 37 minute speech on race and religion in the US (timed in response to the controversy over the snippets of his Pastor) that also seems to me to show his INFP preferences.  He connected the experiences of a wide range of people, and finds the harmony in what they have in common with the potential of the US to be better than it has been before.  To, in his words, "perfect our union." 

You can see the introverted Feeling (Fi) process working in his vision of an improving USA (albeit one that will never quite live up to the standards of his inner ideal standards).

INFPs generally dislike conflict and are good at introjecting the experiences/feelings of others, and his diverse racial/cultural background has given him plenty of experience forging links between peoples who often do not get along well. 

INFPs can also be fuzzy with details.  But I don't think the problem with politics has ever been that it is insufficiently detail-oriented.  I think it is time for a visionary leader.  His underlings can handle the details.  But perhaps that demonstrates the bias of my ENTP preferences.

What do you all think?

It may be that one of the best things you can do to help Obama get elected is to support Project Vote (which he worked for back in '92).

"Project Vote is engaged in a 2008 Voter Participation Program of historic proportions. Designed to address the disproportionately low rates of participation among low- and moderate-income people, African-Americans and Latinos, and young people, the program aims to help a record-setting 1.2 million people from those underrepresented groups register to vote.

Am I the only one that does this? Is this weird? [Feb. 3rd, 2008|12:06 am]
INFP Community v2: Lovers, Dreamers, and Me

Even if I'm not easily read, I try to convince myself that I am easily read for moral improvement. I try to tell myself that people can see through my true feelings. This gets me to be more genuine.

Example: Sometimes when I don't like someone, I act nice to him or her anyway and smile. I hate that and feel really fake. So I try to make myself like the person (if it's an irrational reason) by seeing the good in him or her. That way I won't feel guilty for being fake 'cause it's more genuine.

I don't know if I explained it right. I just try to believe that people can see through me so I don't try to decieve people or lie to them that much, or at all. Does anyone get it?

Your self-worth. [Aug. 17th, 2007|12:57 am]
INFP Community v2: Lovers, Dreamers, and Me

[Current Mood |contemplativecontemplative]

1. Honestly, what makes up most of your self-worth today? 
2. In the past, what did you have to possess (could be intangible or whatever) in order to feel worthy?
