Criticism

by dunkie22 on Sunday, August 7, 2016 - 11:14am

Finding out that I am an INFP and what that actually means has really helped save my life, my sanity. I have often been depressed and even attempted suicide once. I believe that a big part of this was the numerous aspects of my personality in conflict with my reality. A combination that I have found to be very painful is my perfectionism and my sensitivity to criticism. I have always known...

I Feel Too Much.

by dunkie22 on Thursday, August 4, 2016 - 3:04am

I found out a couple of months ago that I was an INFP. It all made sense. I had asked my therapist, "Why am I like the way I am?" I have trouble being around people. I have to hide and recharge after work or doing anything around groups. I go out of my way to avoid people. And watching the news or seeing something in the paper that is about people being hurt or mean to each other "hurts...

Driving

by Guest on Monday, July 18, 2016 - 12:53am

Do any other INFPs feel nervous when driving? I lack self confidence when operating a car, especially when I'm driving on an actual road with other cars and not just an empty parking lot. My dad told me that soon enough I'll feel like the car is my body - that I'll be able to sense where the car is effortlessly. I've been practicing for a few months and I don't feel this way. I am ill and I...

How to deal with socializing

by Guest on Monday, July 11, 2016 - 5:22pm

I can't remember a time that I was comfortable around other people. Besides my immediate family, I can barely talk around others, and I almost always feel awkward.

I find myself criticizing my words and actions later, and can get no relief. I want to be a genuinely friendly person, but I struggle with knowing what to say, how much to ask, how to answer, and how to act around other...

Which am I

by career4linda on Saturday, June 25, 2016 - 4:12am

I took three different tests and the results say I am an INFP. I fit the description but I seem to fit the description for INFJ as well. The two seem quite similar. I am a very disorganized person but I prefer order and used to be able to achieve it when I younger. The percentages are close. INFP 64% INFJ 59% What do you think?

Career change for 48yr old

by Guest on Friday, June 24, 2016 - 7:13pm

I am an accountant. I like working with numbers and generally like the work. I often find mistakes later in my work, correctible but it should be right the first time. I have found I don't like working for others all that well. I have thought about striking out on my own for the past 20 years but fear of failure and history of errors though minor, hold me back. I am smart but often feel...

Why is it that there are more female INFPs?

by animefreak6 on Sunday, June 19, 2016 - 11:12pm

When I opened up the email from this site about the mailing list it brought up a graph showing INFP Male and Female demographics. Apparently males are outnumbered 22-78, while this isn't a bad thing at all and in fact makes me feel more like a special little snowflake, it's something I find interesting.
I've found online many INFP males struggle with a sense of masculinity that I myself...

Finally!!

by Guest on Monday, June 13, 2016 - 9:03pm

Ok so after working since I was 17, everything from CADD & design work, to freelance work, to the very depressing & draining customer service work, I have finally discovered that I need a total career change. Now at 46 years old I find myself looking for a job (again) and it's both terrifying and exciting. But now that I know 'why' I hated going to my job every day, I'm wondering...

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.

Hayley x

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...

Confuse in career path

by h_anindya on Sunday, May 8, 2016 - 1:23am

Hello,
I read this forum a lot, and I feel grateful because it help me to figure out what kind of person I am.
I took a personality test a long time ago, and the result was INTP. But when I took the test a few days ago, my result was INFP.
After read the characteristic about INTP & INFP, I feel I 'm more like an INFP than INTP.
I'm 25 yo. And graduated from...
