Always been skeptical about MBTI until just recently a friend of mine explained to me the 8 cognitive functions that explained each of the different types, and I found out that I was indeed, a Fi dominant person (i.e. I make decisions based on my personal value system / emotions rather than objective facts and data).
Anyways, as a male INFP, I find it quite hard to balance feeling so much / being so sensitive to things and preferring the arts over more 'masculine' things like sport and violence / being aggressive with my goals etc. I will pretty much always shy away from confrontation, preferring to keep quiet in an argument as a way to not further fuel the flame, only to repeat and battle the scenario in my head over and over again when I am alone.
I guess my question is - are you / do you know any male INFPs? What have you / they done that you find particularly masculine?
I don't believe I have to necessarily fit society's image of what a 'masculine' man is, but at the same time, I would like to become more masculine, whilst maintaining the harmony of my INFP-ness.
