INFPs and the other idealist personalities - marital dissatisfaction

by Guest on Saturday, June 4, 2016 - 11:24pm

Hi all!
First a question. How is it that one source claims ESTJ's are our best bet while on another they are the type to be avoided?
OK being an idealist, has it made you pickier about whom you dated? Did you hold out for what qualities you knew the person had to have? Or did you choose 'good enough'? Has your idealism become a need for perfection (i.e. the laundry must be checked...

Living Alone

by Guest on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 - 9:40am

HI,

How many of you are single and living alone?
I'm finding it really tough to be alone.
I am thinking of getting a pet to keep me company.
I have a computer at least, but I also don't drive, so I can't just drive anywhere.
Any tips would be welcome, struggling right now.

Extroverted Introvert?

by trayjaytucker on Friday, May 27, 2016 - 9:58am

I think an awful lot of us don't fall into distinct categories. I'm not an extrovert or an introvert, I'm an extroverted introvert. I'm not exclusively a feeler, I'm a thinking feeler! I think personality types are interesting up to a degree, as guidelines, but I think we generally exist on sliding scales, a smattering of this, a percentage of that, rather than exclusively inhabiting a...

INFP pitfalls in relationships

by Bard on Thursday, May 26, 2016 - 4:47am

I've read descriptions of our personality type that refer to difficulties in romantic relationships. Here on Truity, for example, the INFP profile includes the note, "Second highest of all types to report marital dissatisfaction." How can this be, when we're so lovable? ;-) Seriously, though, I can think of one trait that has big potential for causing problems.

Some writers have...

Hi all, I'm a newbie.
I'm fascinated by these questionnaires and profiles. I got INFP. But I see that there are all sorts of nice things like I'm an Empath, a good listener, sympathetic, care for others etc.

My partner would possibly disagree with much of that. She feels that I don't care about or support her enough. I feel that I care so much about her but it's hard to get...

I am an INFP with an opportunity to work in a position that would test every single one of my weaknesses - working in a high stress environment, making demanding phone calls to strangers, managing calendars and deadlines, searching for problems, and decisively estimating costs. On the one hand, it's a great paying job that may (eventually) lead to a more creative position. On the other, I...

I don't know how to explain it, but a lot of times I feel like that and my friends say that I'm always in a different world or that I always seem lost.

But we are needed now, our non-judgmental-ness...our openness to everyone. We are way-showers. It's easy to accept every one if you expect the same from them. You do your thing and I'll do mine...what ever happened to that?!? Except in the case of...

I scored INFP and ENFP. Seems like a weird combo.

by Guest on Friday, October 30, 2015 - 1:23pm

Well, first off, the test was unable to determine if I am an Introvert or an Extrovert. That is fair since I am not sure either. I guess it just depends on what day of the week it is. What I thought was strange, though, was that I scored as an INFP (healer) and ENFP (champion). Those seem like weird combos to me. I feel like I am certainly more of a Healer. Did anybody else get that score?...

Forever preordained to be a lone wanderer. Constantly I crave a deeper connection with someone. Friends and strangers open up to me. They bring me all of their problems. Big, small, deep, shallow. I listen, I care, I do whatever I can to help. They feel understood, and the satisfaction I feel when I see that brief connection in their eyes, when they realize that I do understand what they're...

INFP vs ISTP

by Guest on Saturday, October 3, 2015 - 6:31am

I scored borderline on everything but Introvert, but the types I identify with the most are INFP and ISTP. I find this interesting because it seems like they are clashing personality types but I relate to both of them. So I was wondering if there are any other INFP-ISTPs, or anyone else who identifies with what they think are opposing personality types.

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?
