    Default The INFJ mind.

    It's about time that I re-introduced myself, psychologically. I will be continuously updating this post whenever I get the chance, and the topic of discussion will become highlighted in blue on my list of likes and dislikes, as I go through each one at random. This is so you can decide whether or not you want participate in the chosen topic.
    Your comments, advice, criticism, and scoffs are all welcome. After all, this thread is about strengthening the INFJ mind.

    I have been a member here for quite awhile now, and I rarely contribute to the forums,... Well, I do, just not as much as other members, so for starters, here are some things about myself.
    I'm a 30 year old INFJ and I have scored as ENTP-INTP-INFP-ISTP in the past. My ennegramme number is a solid 4 with no wing, I'm a Scorpio, I am Canadian and damn proud to live in what is probably the most unique, and diverse country in the world...
    I am married to a very smart and talented, beautiful, funny, deeply caring, and fun loving ISFP woman for 9 years who has helped me successfully become a father of 4 awesome children that I cherish, and I am proud and grateful to have all of them in my life...

    I like to experience, learn more about, and delve in the idealistic realms of

    I often think too much, and it makes me a bit loopy when the thoughts get carried away. I can be paranoid. I am hyper-sensitive, judgmental, spontaneous, aloof, obsessive-compulsive, conscientious, self-observed, out-going and friendly. I can be seen as pretentious, arrogant, cocky, lazy, short fused, ungrateful, careless, and just plain miserable... I find it quite difficult to speak my mind on a public forum, for I fear that my input is irrelevant due to the fact that a lot of what is talked about on this forum, is nothing more than regurgitated/recycled notions and ideas that tend to never be original thoughts. But nevertheless, it almost seems important, or even necessary for one to submit their contribution, in order to achieve validation from a world that is nothing like the real one we live in.

    So far, today has been fairly uninteresting...

    What can I do to make my day better?...

    I'm confident enough to have a discussion about most, but not all of the things I like and dislike. I want to further my development toward understanding other people, as well as becoming more sure of who I am, because in my mind, everyone is important and deserves love, honor and respect.

    We all talk about peace like it's nothing more than a "woulda coulda shoulda", and frankly, I think that's a fucking bullshit attitude! :steam:

    First, I want to discuss music, and it's impact on life.

    Yesterday I have decided to continue with my music, I was recording last night and found it to be very soothing,(I missed the feeling)I guess I can consider guitar playing as form of therapy, or should I say "string therapy" as it helps me to organize my thoughts when they are all scattered about. When I'm playing or writing music, nothing else compares to the feeling of manipulating vibrations, it shakes me right down to the soul, gets the blood and dopamine flowing, and the visualizations of the tones are euphoric,(I see colours, numbers, or shapes when I play or hear music)and I love it!... How often do you physically experience music?

    Everyone notices the effect music has on people, whether it's hard rock or classical, it's what drives emotions. These emotions are varied by which ever frequency a specific song, or music genre is tuned to......[more to come.]
    ... They say that knowledge is free, and to truly acquire wisdom always comes with a price... Well then,... That will be $10, please!

    I love this thread. Thank you, Provoker, for sharing your thoughts with us. I will comment more on this, when I mull it enough in my head to come up with something meaningful.
    I would eat an artichoke down to its heart,
    then feed the heart to him.
    It was enough that he was not you and utterly foreign,
    related to no one. So easy to love.

    I thought his name was Prototype. Not Provoker.

    Do you have synesthesia?

    At any rate, I would love it if you continued where you were going with the music tangent

    I don't know, would I have synesthesia if certain sounds trigger scents or tastes? Seeing the numbers and shapes happens less often then I would like, but when it does my music playing becomes very fluid!

    I will gladly continue with my piece on music, I just have some things to tend to first... Happy New Year everyone!

    Default Sorry to contribute so little, if anything.

    I'm not settled in but I'll try.

    Do you ever make a play-list contingent on everything you'll feel and create during a talking session with someone?
    As if.. you know what the general theme of what you want to talk about and then put on a music list with words/melody that will represent "background understanding" and build from there, expecting subjects to lick in the music and get an enhanced understanding of what you speak about?

    Also, I am scared to embrace me and so I don't manage to listen to music as much as I would like to. When I do though, I do experience it physically. Even if the music is in my head and not from an external source, such as headphones/speakers. As if hearing it, which I do but not externally but I hear it as if externally.
    It's so lovely, isn't it.

    I feel as if imposing, I like your thread a lot and it feels personal and.. Hi, nice to meet you - sorry for barging in.
    Open for interpretation.

    Hey, me too, quite literally. Sometimes I can't believe all of the above doesn't annoy others to the point of completely leaving me alone. And since they seem to be so persistent, you can be sure that i will keep up the good work of making myself completely undesirable in any and every possible way until they decide to stop watching me, stalking me, playing stupid games with my family, pushing coffee on me, interjecting their philosophical and logical arguments onto me, pretending that they love me or even like me, and any number of other behaviors they see fit to impose upon my peace of mind. I absolutely will not be in any way productive until this behavior is put to rest.
