I'm glad there's a place where I can Relate to other INFP's. Now, I have a qyestion. Does any other INFP feel like they never want to be alone? Like, if you are with a friend and then they have to turn away to go to a different place, you feel....worried? Not in the sense of something might happened to you, buy feel like you ate closed up? or that they left because of something you did?

Hey!

I'm an INFP, too! Isn't so refreshing just knowing there are others like you, with the same thought (or feeling, in our case ;)) processes as you?

I read your question and... I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND. For the longest time I have had a deathly fear of being left alone! Even when I'm in the grocery store with my sister (who is an ISTJ, practically incapable of wrapping her around this weakness of mine), I am always so scared when she runs off for a while leaving me with the cart full of groceries. I feel like I become vulnerable to a countless number of accidents or that I would mess up and she wouldn't be there I help me! It's almost crippled me, I feel like I've let this get to me on too many occasions and I've avoided opportunities that could've been really productive... all because I hate being alone. I don't like that feeling of being helpless. I hate feeling like people have left because I bore them or I'm not good enough!

I thought I was the only one, but I guess I'm not! :)

Helloo!

One of the most admirable think about INFPs I think is that they're fiercely loyal and protective of those they love. However it's interesting for me to see other INFPs who love socializing and being around other people. I am kind of the opposite, and would rather stay home and read a book or watch Netflix than go out with friends. It's funny though, because I WANT my friends and people I care about to ask me to hang out with them and invite me to parties etc, however when I do get invited to these social events I usually turn them down. But then when I DON'T get invited I feel sad, dejected, and lonely. One of the INFP's biggest problems, at least for me! It's sad because people stopped inviting me to things because every time I was invited, I'd reject the offer! But I think I'm on the right path to fixing my hypocrisy... I hope!
