    If you are an INFP:

    How do you respond to authority figures in your life? Do you generally question authority or are you pretty submissive? While I may question what goes on the reality is I tend rarely to speak up since most areas seems to work well and hence part of the status quo suppose.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you? I try to link their reason for doing the talking down and rebound the conversation onto them.

    Are you very emotionally reactive? If so, are you emotionally reactive in public or just with those you are comfortable with? Used to be emotionally reactive, this mayn't be a great sense to be. These days the opposite is truer and neither in public nor at home would I become emotionally reactive but of course this may change.

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships? The opposite more so since I've learned to be low maintenance I'd most likely seek attention when its necessary but not go out of my way to get lots of attention.

    Are you really sarcastic? This is possibly so yet its tapered with a dry and dark sense of humour.

    Are you silly? Oh gosh yeah, though its been repressed, what can ya do brown nosed by a bunch of TJ's. To let loose the silly is impractical so has switched of that sense though would love to reignite that again, do me a world of good.

    Were you shy as a child? Surprisingly no, I was the cheekiest most adorable little tyke then something happened and I turned into this incredibly shy and timid person that is still trying to learn to outgrow whatever it is that holds me back without much success.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?[/i] Certainly and then there is an awkwardness to want to speak with me since too few know how to relate.

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally? This is indeed something that has been of issue. In so far its like my brain switches gears, if there are 10 then I'm skipping all over the place. Some days the verbal is great other days not so much. Been told I'd be great as a speaker though I can't see it.

    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers? Personally am relating poorly to some of my peers than others. I seem to be beyond my years in thinking at times while other times well under too. relates better with older peers.

    Are you a talented writer? Unlikely, I would like to be alas am below par.

    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)? This decision is still open season, for I am already grown up.

    If you are an INFP:

    How do you respond to authority figures in your life? Do you generally question authority or are you pretty submissive?

    On the inside I'm pretty questionable. On the outside I'm reluctantly submissive

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?

    If they are speaking to me directly, I try to talk back but I usually don't do so well. If indirectly I avoid the person.

    Are you very emotionally reactive? If so, are you emotionally reactive in public or just with those you are comfortable with?

    With people I'm comfortable with, a lot of times. I don't think I've been put in a situation where I was emotionally reactive in public.

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?

    Never been in one, but most likely I would enjoy a lot of attention, but I will also need my space.

    Are you really sarcastic?

    YEP. Mostly to be funny or get off some stress when someone says something stupid. I'm usually a smart mouth with my mom and she gets mad sometimes. I wouldn't do it so much if she would just stop provoking me!

    Are you silly?

    Around people I'm close with, definitely. Otherwise I seem incredibly dull.

    Were you shy as a child?

    I'd say for most of my childhood, but didn't I start out that way. I was very outgoing until I was about 7. Then things started to get to me and I never came out of my shell.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?

    Yeah. I'm pretty sure in high school a lot of people thought I was fake or a snob, but sometimes I really don't give a damn.

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?

    Very much so. People usually don't know what I'm talking about.

    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers?

    I'd say I think like I'm older, but act like I'm younger.

    Are you a talented writer?

    When I actually tried to write papers in school I got high scores so I guess so. I don't like to write though. I can usually wrap up my point with a sentence. It's hard to elaborate.

    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)?

    I don't know I'm screwed.

    How do you respond to authority figures in your life? Do you generally question authority or are you pretty submissive?

    >>>Submissive because I know if I'm not I will get in trouble, but inside, I always question what they are telling me.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?

    >>>Defensively, and then I would just start ignoring them probably.

    Are you very emotionally reactive? If so, are you emotionally reactive in public or just with those you are comfortable with?

    >>>I'm very emotionally reactive on the inside but I choose to only share these reactions with people I am comfortable with.

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?

    >>>Not a lot of attention, but I do have ideals in relationships that I would like paid attention to. I find I need a mix of attention and space, because too much attention just drains me.

    Are you really sarcastic?

    >>>Yes. I even thought about making this answer sarcastic.

    Are you silly?

    >>>I can be extremely silly and do things just for the fun of doing them and seeing other people's reactions. But generally I do not let this silliness out in public unless I know the people around me.

    Were you shy as a child?

    >>>Very shy, although I had a good group of friends. I was always the quiet one and the listener. My doctor says I was selectively mute, but that makes it sound worse than it was IMO. I'd often play by myself and my parents would comment about how I didn't need any other kid to have fun, I could make my own fun.

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?

    >>>Sometimes yes. Usually if I have enough time to plan what I am going to say and how I am going to say it, I can do it quite effectively, but spontaneous verbalization can be hard at times.

    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers?

    >>>I definitely feel more mature. I act like a kid sometimes though.

    Are you a talented writer?

    >>>I feel I am.

    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)?

    >>>I'm aiming towards a career in psychology (psychologist), but when I do get there, writing on the side would be something I could also see myself doing.

Basically I just have some questions, if any of you are at all interested in answering any of them (as many or as few as you'd like, and if you have any other information about INFPs to share I'd be interested in reading it!).
    If you are an INFP:

    I either "bend" or leave but I never really fight because I think that people's thoughts are their own and that I have no right to twit with them. I never felt comfortable about hierarchy though. I was always trying to find the most neutral way to talk as to erase any sign of "submission" to them. At other times, I was in a borderline god-disciple relationship because I admired them and put them on a pedestal(I still do this a lot!).
    I'm always polite but never "submissive" openly that is. If something bothers me and people try to push me I just leave.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?
    Depends on the day, the weather, the color of my shoes.
    Usually I just glare at them and they leave. Strangely that's enough most of the time. I heard I look evil so that does the trick. You know, people don't talk down to me a lot. When they do sometimes I get upset and just blow them off. At other times I just ignore them and go on with my life.

    Are you very emotionally reactive? If so, are you emotionally reactive in public or just with those you are comfortable with?

    Usually and to pretty much everything. I tend to not show any emotion but always have something going on. I don't like to showcase them in public usually but with someone I know then there's no problem.

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?
    Attention, no. Affection, yes! I don't like to feel smothered actually. People who overdo it bother me. I like it when people keep it off a little bit. Make me want you!

    Are you really sarcastic?
    No. Except when I'm cranky or bored.
    Oops, that's 75% of the time.

    Are you silly?
    Yes but only around my close friends.

    Were you shy as a child?

    More quiet than shy but yes I was shy. I still have to "pep talk" myself to say hello to acquaintances for some reason. I get anxious and nervous about practically anyone who comes my way.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?
    All the time.

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?

    Yes. I can't get anyone to listen!

    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers?

    No. I feel behind the times in some areas..

    Are you a talented writer?

    I've been told I was by my teachers but I wouldn't want it to get to my head. I have a terrible tendency to let them get there and it always backfires.

    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)?

    I'm not sure yet. Something to do with tourism, marketing, charity...who knows?
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

    How do you respond to authority figures in your life? Do you generally question authority or are you pretty submissive?

    i have a marked disdain for authority and heirarchy in general. i distrust it. i believe imposing order is unnecessary as people will naturally order themselves.
    however, i understand well that too many voices on the same level becomes white noise and so in groups people need a figurehead with a megaphone if you will, to keep things in order.. so long as said authority figure is respectable to me i will be quite obedient. if they aren't, i simply ignore them.


    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?

    i hate it. i feel as if the person taking this stance must perceive me as stupid or simply easy to control , neither of which i strive for.. i certainly don't respect them in this instance and am unlikely to listen to their suggestions (unless they are common sense in which case i didnt need to be told to do anything anyway)..generally my method in response is to lay on the saccharine sweetness and hope the condescending bastard will read between the lines. if not, (s)he has just proven him/herself thick, and i have my satisfaction knowing that.

    Are you very emotionally reactive? If so, are you emotionally reactive in public or just with those you are comfortable with?

    i would say i am very emotionally reactive internally, but in most cases externally i take a more cool-headed approach.. i will be more emotive with those i know better, certainly, though in some cases being close to a person is a deterrent to react with emotional fervor - i find myself hesitant to hurt or conflict with those i am close to..sometimes for the best and sometimes not..

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?

    i need a lot of space, but i also need a lot of attention at times. the keyword for me is understanding.. i can accept less attention than i need if there is shared understanding. without that, though, it is difficult for me to tolerate a lack of attention.

    Are you really sarcastic?

    NEVER.

    Are you silly?

    if a tree falls in the forest and nobody hears it, does it still crush a bird?

    Were you shy as a child?

    very.


    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?

    often. i have been called a snob by people that don't know me well.

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?

    i am good with words, or so i have been told. it depends on what i am expressing. i am good at expressing most positive emotions, decent with expressing frustration if it is a functional matter...but otherwise i tend to channel my negative emotions into written word or visual imagery. i know there is an INFP writer cliche, but there you go.

    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers?

    hell no.

    Are you a talented writer?

    so people say. i am inclined to believe that calling oneself talented is a bit much...better to say you're almost talented and push yourself to continue improving..

    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)?

    historian, curator, or art preservationist

    If you are an INFP:

    How do you respond to authority figures in your life? Do you generally question authority or are you pretty submissive?
    Hmm. I'd say I question them if they're trying to force me to believe something I really don't believe. If it's something I feel strongly about. If it's something that doesn't really matter to me, I'll just shut up and go along with it.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you? It depends who they are. If it's a stranger or somebody I don't know well, I'll probably just be like "mhhmm" and act uninterested, and make show my thoughts are know, without actually saying them. If it's someone I know well, I'm more likely to actually say something.

    Are you very emotionally reactive? If so, are you emotionally reactive in public or just with those you are comfortable with? Internally I'm very emotionally reactive. Externally, I used to be more so. These days that's lessend, but I do still have times where I react in a way I feel embarrassed about afterwards. Sometimes the emotions are so strong, they just come out no matter what.

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships? Yes.

    Are you really sarcastic? I wouldn't say I'm "really" sarcastic, but I do have my times. Usually depends on who I am around and their personality.

    Are you silly? With people I feel comfortable wit I definitley can be. It takes me a while to warm up though. I can be very serious.

    Were you shy as a child? Umm...more quiet than shy really. I guess, sort of.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness? Yes, I think so. People think I'm being rude sometimes when I'm just not. *shrugs*

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally? I have a hard time getting out what I really want to say. To get people to understand it. If it's a subject that matters to me, I can talk about it intensley, but I usually feel I haven't got what I wanted to get out properly. If that makes sense?? Haha...

    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers? This is a weird one. Mentally I've always felt older. More deep, mature. But emotionally I sort of feel younger... I dunno.

    Are you a talented writer? Writing has always been one, if the not the, strongest subjects for me. Even as a kid I would get told by teachers that I was talented in that area. Still could, and will, be better though.

    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)? My dream jobs are shrink, carer, work with children, or writer.
