Am I really who I think I am?

by Twinkle on Sunday, October 14, 2018 - 2:03pm

I'm a 17 year old INFP about to finish high school (I'm in the exam phase), and while I have been getting ready for my exams, I encountered many problems in my friendships which just brought me down and now I don't even understand who I am anymore. I have realised that many people I was very close to have just left me behind or don't like talking to or being around me anymore, and this made me...

INFPs, how do you feel about marriage?

by Guest on Sunday, May 27, 2018 - 8:35pm

Autonomy has been kind of the guiding principle of my life and marriage comes loaded with so many historical, social, and economic realities and expectations.  The idea of willingly entering a conventional role in which two people legal "own" each other, for any reason, seems to go against everything I everything I stand for.  What are your thoughts on marriage?

How can I just pick one thing?

by Guest on Friday, January 5, 2018 - 1:12am

I'm a college student and have changed my major more times than I could count. I think I have an overall issue with just deciding to do "one" thing. And I understand that a degree doesn't define you and that plenty of people don't do work in the field of the degree that they pursued (mine is sociology - for now), but it's a deeper seeded issue. I don't want to be "glued down" to one job or one...

ENFP, INFP, INFJ Friendships

by FeralDreamer on Saturday, December 30, 2017 - 2:53pm

I am an INFP surrounded by INFJs and ENFPs everywhere but it seems no matter how hard I try to get them to understand or see anything from my point of view, they reject it and treat me like an imbecile. I don't know of any INFPs that I can befriend or what to do at all most of the time considering even the people that are supposed to be most similar to me don't understand. I think taking that...

by N.F. on Sunday, December 10, 2017 - 11:24pm

Hi there!

I am an INFP and 17 years old. My parents are really great and all but they're the type of people that don't take no are difference of opinion very well. They've been pushing me to get out in the world but also wanting me to stay close to home. My family is great aswell but...basically, they don't like my own personality but when i pretend they want me to be "real...

What do you do when you want to do it all?

by mindful.l on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 3:54am

I'm 35 years old and having trouble finding a career that will suit my personality type. I do not see myself working in one field, but working in many. Is there such a career?

You are an Intuitive

You May Be a Feeler or a Thinker

You Are a Perceiver

Career Crossroads

by Guest on Monday, November 20, 2017 - 2:46am

Hello,

I am one of the approxiamately 1% of males in the United States who is INFP.  Along with that I am a "cancer" and to top it off I also am gay.  I didn't find out my personality type until 7 years ago, and yesterday took the MBTI yesterday and it came out with the same result.  I recently retired from my full-time good paying job.  I want to work again, but not sure if anything...

They say infps have vivid imaginations and live within their core values but how do I live with hardly any.

by Guest on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - 10:19pm

I’m an infp college student studying animation and illustration and honestly i’ve lost all inspiration, self identity, I’m doubting the path I’m taking - and yet I can’t see myself doing much else. 

I used to be so imaginative before I started my “journey to self-improvement” a few years ago. When ever I got anxious, I could escape in whatever fantasy I could sprout out of nowhere or...

Struggling to make a career decision post college.

by Guest on Wednesday, September 27, 2017 - 7:40pm

Hi there, I'm an INFP who recently graduated in June this year, and I have been battling anxiety regarding choosing a career since high school probably. In my junior year of college, I honestly knew I was going to have this unsettled feeling post grad. I love art, photography, music, traveling, reading, and writing. I've pretty much only had jobs working with children and older people in care...

Type Unknown

by Riukkuyo on Saturday, September 9, 2017 - 7:57pm

So, I'm new here on this site. I don't know my MBTI type, I've tested for INFP a lot but it me also changed to INTP, I asked people on Reddit to typify me and it was either INFP or INFJ. 

I recently did the big five factor one:

Openness: 85%

Conscientiouness: 10% (I think I can thank ADHD for that)

Extraversion: 23%

Agreeableness: 58%

Neuroticism: 80...

is it possible to be introverted with some people and extroverted with others?

by MajesticBandicoot on Friday, September 8, 2017 - 11:47pm

well I usually conisder myself an ISFP but I also fit into INFP, ESFP, and ENFP which is why I added those i hope thats not bad but anyway

College Major/ Career Q

by Guest on Sunday, August 13, 2017 - 4:21pm

I'm a senior in High School, and still trying to figure out what I mjght want to do in the future, and what I should major in for college. My question is, how did you other INFP's figure out what you wanted to do as a career? I know it's most difficult for our personality type to commit to a career. Did something just click, or how did you discover that passion for what you wanted to do? And...

MBTI types and mental illness

by Guest on Friday, August 11, 2017 - 6:21pm

Does anyone know how much (if at all) mental illness can affect the outcome of your personality test? I am an ENFP, but part of me wonders if my depression makes me feel more P than J, or that my anxiety can make me more I than E, etc. 

Maybe it's a moot point, but I have always wondered about this. 

Anyone have any insight on this? Or resources for more information?

INFP who have hard time keeping a jobs .

by cronu4 on Monday, August 7, 2017 - 11:28pm

I always wonder, am I the only one  who gets fired from medical offices working as a receptionist after a month, or are there people INFP who have the same problem as me?

Honestly, I think all my job's have given me phobias of working. I am sure there is a name for that phobia. I try hard to keep a job, but for some reason all my managers told me that I make to much small stupid...

difficult relationship with daughter

by Guest on Saturday, July 22, 2017 - 12:02pm

My 23 yr old daughter is in counseling...ours has been a difficult relationship for many yrs.  I finally divorced her ISTP dad when she went to college.  Anyway, he never had my back...let her say anything to me...basic message was "It's fine for u to be incredibly disrespectful to ur mom".  

So, being an INFP, I dig my heels in when my core values are being challenged.  She says she...

INFP dating a ENTP boyfriend..

by Guest on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 - 6:33am

Many similar questions may have been discussed on the forum before but I just feel the need to post mine regardless..

I have been dating with my ENTP boyfriend for half year - I know not typically long. We pretty much have been staying together in the same flat for most of the time with no problems at all. Two months ago he told me he has to move to a big city soon for his new career...
