    get this...some adults can't even distinguish the difference between their, there, and they're (and equally as annoying: your and you're). I can verify none of them are INFPs.

    I question authority within certain limits, i usually question everything, and really would be quite rebellious if i was an E. but im chill.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?
    I get super defensive usually, or give them puppy eyes and make them feel bad for being dicks.

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

    probably

    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?

    I am a law-abiding citizen, unless it is completely unjust and I wish to make a point and choose "that hill to die on", then I may have a problem. Growing up, my parents are extremely traditional and protective and in my early teens, I demanded my freedom, and it led to a lot of fights and some manipulation, but I did what I needed for me, for my life, and nothing I did was 'wrong' with my own principals, so it depends if I have a good reason to. I am not a rebel just so I can be a rebel, there has to be a very important reason.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?

    Depends on my temper, on the person, on my day, on my mood... If I am feeling uncertain that day, I will keep my mouth shut and whine about it later. If I am feeling abrasive, I might shot back, roll my eyes. I am passive aggressive though, so if it's a boss I might take a stab later.

    Are you very emotionally reactive? If so, are you emotionally reactive in public or just with those you are comfortable with? Just with people I am very comfortable with, otherwise I keep everything in check.

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships? Yea....h...yes....

    Are you really sarcastic?

    Extremely.

    Are you silly?

    Extremely.

    Were you shy as a child?

    Yes, very, very shy.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?

    Yes.

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?

    Yes, very much so. I just want them to know how I am feeling just as I ... sometimes know because I take a lot of time analyzing the other person so I can read their expressions.

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

    No, HAHA, no.

    Are you a talented writer?

    I am. It used to be my only talent and I loved it because I am good. Though I haven't written in a while.

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

    Political scientist, ambassador, along those lines, hopefully.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?
    I don't appreciate it as i'm not a child. I surely don't like be
    spoken to like a child either or reprimended like one.

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

    I can be emotionally reactive but usually it takes "alot" and only if a certain button has been pushed intentionally. I usually try my best to keep my cool as personally I'm very burned out emotionally from alot of emotional intensity in my teen years.

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?
    Not really. I guess i'm pretty laid back and undemanding for the most part.

    I'm not the type to call all the time, needing to be always around my partner demanding his attention. I need my alone time/friends time as well heh.


    Are you really sarcastic? Sometimes but i conceal it well.

    Are you silly? Very silly .

    Were you shy as a child? Sort of.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness? Probably haha. But I really do think I seem and am too Aloof *head in the clouds* in some areas . Like in relationships I'm so seemingly unaware of the physical aspect that it can seem like I don't care but that's very wrong. Peer inside my head for two seconds and it's anything but apathy in there.

    I think the aloofness comes from needing a whole lot of introversion time even when I'm with a friend or group. I usually don't speak alot and don't like feeling like i have to make small talk *pet peeve*. At this point i shut down as i get overwhelmed from the pressure to speak.



    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?
    Definitely. It can be very hard cause I'll be thinking about all this things but
    as soon as I go to get it out there or it's asked of me I get nervous cause I don't know how to even begin to express all the feelings inside as that alone is coming from a very personal place that I just can't put a name on it.


    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers?
    No. Only cause of experiences i've been through that have wisened me up abit. But there's always more to learn about life and we all are where were suppose to be.

    Are you a talented writer?
    No XD.
    I don't write just journal entree's of my thoughts and feelings.


    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)?
    Either an Archivist or Cataloger kind of Career.
    I thought i'd share. Very cool questions I hope I answered them well enough.

    I'm going to check out other people's responses now to see what other INFPs have said .
    What is Feeling?
    Feeling is primarily a process.....that imparts to the content a definite value in the sense of acceptance or rejection. In the same way that thinking organizes the contents of consciousness under concepts, feeling arranges them according to their value. Feeling, like thinking, is a rational function, since values in general are assigned according to the laws of reason...

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

    when i was little, I would never do anything out of line. But around high school I would skip class with freinds. My better half hates this about me but, when I am told to do something, I will not do it. For instance, I going to take out the trash, but on my way there he tells me to...i wont do it then lol

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?

    For the most part i just i laugh inside, but it depends on who is talking to me

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

    It takes me a long time to react to things, and when I do, its only with a few people that I will share it with

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?

    Not really, I know that I am loved and thats all I need

    Are you really sarcastic?

    ...no way...

    Are you silly?

    for the most part

    Were you shy as a child?

    very much so, i didnt have any friends till around 6th grade

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?

    When I first started to datemy boyfriend he had to kinda get used to me being reserved, and I had to talk with him about how I pick my words and actions very slowly

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?
    I stumble over words, and when talking to anyone I have to seach for the perfect to use so there are lots of "umm...well...hmm.."

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

    nope

    Are you a talented writer?

    somewhat, not the best, but not the worst

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

    I am working on being a park ranger right now, but i am also doing volunteer firefighting so kinda torn between the two at the moment

    *
    Generally, I hate being ordered to do anything, but if I know there's no ill will behind it or is for my own good (like the police, teachers, etc.) I'll give in. I know they're just trying to do their jobs and I'm not gonna give them any grief over it (unless they act unfairly). Although quiet, I was much more quick to verbalize it when an authority figure pissed me off as a kid, not usually enough to get me in big trouble though. I don't like getting in trouble, it upsets me, but if I'm being ordered to do something I REALLY don't like, I'll stand firm and object in my own quiet way.

    When it's from someone I love, I'll usually just take it if I don't feel it's worth arguing over. Other times I'll pull the, 'You think your shit doesn't stink?' card. I try to stay as calm as I can without letting my emotions get the best of me while still making my point. I always seem to be the one submitting in the end.

    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, but I try my best not to let it show. If anything my eyes will probably express more of what I'm feeling than anything. I'm very facially expressive. Of course I'm more quick to express myself in front of those I'm close to. I very rarely act out on emotional impulse, like throwing fits (and objects), yelling, etc. It takes a lot to get me to that point, and I don't like being there. I'll totally admit that I'm a crybaby, though. I cry over guilt more easily than anything. My emotions just get so overwhelming at times, then they totally consume me and I break down.*
    *
    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?
    What I need is a lot of assurance, I think, to be reminded that I'm doing well and that I'm loved. I really put my all into loving someone, so I guess, in a way, I kind of hope to be loved back just as much. I'll give them their space, and they sure as hell better give me mine lol
    *
    Are you really sarcastic?

    Probably more often than not I'm sarcastic in a humorous way, but I can be pretty sarcastic and snarky when pushed far enough, especially when I'm feeling irritable. I can be quite a cynic at times. I feel like I've grown a more realistic side to me in the last few years, especially when it comes to relationships and people in general. I'm still idealistic, but I know that people have their limits and that not everyone has good intentions.*

    *
    Are you silly?


    Oh yeah, I've got a very random sense of humor, but people don't usually realize it until they really get to know me. Although I have a tendency to do funny things in a subtle manner around people I don't know very well, in which they usually act totally shocked because, to them, it seems so out-of-character for me. It can be fun screwing with people in that sense lol I guess I use my sense of humor as something of a natural defense mechanism. I love British-type humor, making funny observations, puns, doing physically funny things, etc. Sometimes it's hard for me to take things seriously because I can find so much humor in almost anything. I just love making others laugh, it's one of the greatest feelings ever.
    *
    Were you shy as a child?

    Yeah, and it was a big issue for me. I wanted friends but I also liked being alone. It seemed so contradictory, I couldn't fathom it at the time. I gave my mom a lot of grief over this, but my introvert grandma understood me. Other kids would approach me and want to be friends all the time, but I always turned them down and went off to do something by myself. I had friends, just not that many. I'm still shy now, although I've gotten a lot better when it comes to approaching people and showing interest in them (like asking them how they feel, how's life, etc.).

    *Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?

    Oh yeah, or they'd misread me as being upset. Can't tell you how many times people have asked me if I was alright in school. I'd be totally fine, my head would just be elsewhere. After a while you start to figure that something must be wrong with you because people won't stop asking lol
    *
    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?

    Absolutely, and it can be rather annoying, even to me. I've got a great need to want and express myself, but my mind doesn't let me relax. I've got a horrible fear of being judged or misunderstood. I feel like I have to filter or modify what I'm going to say in order to adapt to whatever social situation I'm in, but while still trying to remain genuine. It can be really hard, like walking on eggshells. I can't stand the thought of offending someone when I don't intend to. I'm constantly retracting or further explaining statements to make the other person happy/feel at ease. I probably try too hard to please others emotionally, but it's nit something I can just shake, ya know? I feel devastated when/if I offend someone with my opinion. I don't like being harsh or pushing my ideals onto others. I don't think that's something you should do to people. There's always room to modify and grow when it comes to my opinions, I think, especially as I go about learning and obtaining information.*
    *
    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers?

    No, not always. I felt like I emotionally matured faster than they did. My friends were very carefree, while I was already going through the rebellious emo phase in 5th grade. I'm just glad I got that over and done with before finishing middle school. I think I had a lot more mature interests than my friends at a young age, too. I was totally in love with movies. I think I was around 5 when I figured out what voice actors were. I thought it was the coolest thing and i was totally obsessed with reading the credits at the end of movies. I totally flipped when I found out that Robin Williams played Genie in Aladdin lol Hell, I started collecting Biography magazine when I was 8. I got totally caught up in watching old movies and musicals like 'My Fair Lady' and 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' before I hit middle school. I also remember having a profound fascination in the paranormal from a really young age (and I still do), although it kind of freaked me out at the same time. I dunno, I think I scared my parents sometimes lol Despite all this, I've always been very childlike in a sense. I love hanging out with kids and playing with them. Playing pretend is still so much fun :] For some reason they always end up gravitating towards me at family events. Maybe i look out-of-place amongst the mature crowd lol But really, I'd like to adopt kids someday. After seeing how some parents raise/treat their kids (mine included), I dunno, I just have this internal urge to bring up kids of my own in my own ideal way. Like... really teach them values, that we should accept others, and etc. I think it'd be a lot of fun to introduce my own kids to interesting things/ideas that most parents don't. Like traveling and interacting with people from different countries and walks of life. Sorry, I'm totally going on a tangent lol

    Are you a talented writer?

    Well, I've been told that I am many times. My English teachers always loved me lol I was proud of myself, yet at the same time I kind of thought, 'This is kind of bullshit. It's too easy.' I felt like all I had to do was present a profound thought, insert some intelligent words here and there, then go on a total tangent when it came to the subject. I mean, it'd all be genuinely my thoughts and feelings, but I kind of felt like it was absurd that they thought my work was 'gold' or something. I didn't want the other students to think that I had a high opinion of myself or that I was just a goody-two-shoes. I do love writing though. I especially love creating and developing characters. It's a lot of fun. I've been writing since I was very young.
    *
    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)?

    God, I feel like there's so many things I want to dabble in. It kind of sucks, but I don't really have a passion for one particular thing. I love a lot of things. I know they're all rather unrealistic career choices, but I guess I can dream. Jobs I'd like: Writer, actor/voice actor, musician, magician, filmmaker/director, comic artist, video game creator, photographer, historian, sailor (laugh it up lol), teacher (elementary or high school), language interpreter, archaeologist, storm chaser, paranormal investigator, and animator (for actual cartoon movies, none of this 3D shit). Maybe I could be a ridiculous, yet heroic, masked vigilante that resides in a European city.

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

    The only time I submit to authority is if I give that authority permission to boss me around, like working for someone. If I don't like it, I can always leave. I don't question authority unless they intrude in my space. I respect chain of command. I will only go against authority if they force me to go against my values. That will be an all out war, I guarantee it.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?
    I've been talked down to all my life. I won't take it, and I won't take it when I'm witnessing it myself happening to another person. I will come to that person's defense.

    Are you very emotionally reactive? If so, are you emotionally reactive in public or just with those you are comfortable with?
    The only times when I'm emotionally reactive is with people who know me well, when people who I care about are under threat, or something is going on that I really do not like. But I can still think straight.

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?
    No. But I do need attention, just like everyone else.

    Are you really sarcastic?
    Only when I feel like joking around.

    Are you silly?
    I am VERY silly.

    Were you shy as a child?
    VERY shy.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?
    No. They just think I'm guarded. But recently I've been working on it, so people tend to think I'm more outgoing and sunny.

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?
    No. I have a hard time controlling what I'm saying when I get really enthusiastic about something, and it comes out wrong.

    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers?
    I never had such an attitude. It seems a little condescending.

    Are you a talented writer?
    People say that I am. Enough people have said it for me to believe it.

    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)?
    A writer. A teacher.

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

    I certainly question authority in my mind and to my friends, but I don't outwardly do so usually because I hate confrontation. To others, I might seem to be a goody goody, but my beliefs don't indicate that at all.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?

    Once again, I hate confrontation, so I'll usually just brush it off, but once it has a chance to sink in, I'll think, "goddamn it, I should have said something." It's like that episode of Seinfeld where George thinks of the perfect comeback too late.

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

    Not at all. I was maybe when I was a teenager with raging hormones, but as an adult, I am cool as a cucumber all the time. Probably too much. It's hard to rile me up.

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?

    No. I like a lot of alone time. Like, A LOT.

    Are you really sarcastic?

    I suppose I'm known amongst my friends for a somewhat dry sense of humor. I have several ENFP friends and they especially seem to be tickled by my sense of humor.

    Are you silly?

    Definitely. As a musician, I tend to project myself as an extrovert on stage, and that often translates into silliness. I feel like people are somewhat disappointed when they talk to me after a show and I'm super shy!

    Were you shy as a child?

    Yes! I had a silly side when I was comfortable with my company, but around adults and strangers, I was REALLY shy.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?

    I hope not. I'm very conscious of this though. No one has ever said that to me, but I'm sure I come across as aloof a lot around people I don't know. Around friends, I'm not reserved or aloof at all!

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?

    Yes. Even around my friends, I sometimes say things that make no sense when they come out of my mouth. Sometimes things in my head just don't translate right when I have to verbalize them.

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

    Well, in an N sense, I've always felt like I was ahead of everyone else. In a "practical" S sense, I've been behind the curve my whole life. I'm 27 and still depending on my parents for money to get by for crying out loud!

    Are you a talented writer?

    My focus has always been on music and songwriting, so in that sense, yes. In terms of prose, I always did well at it in school and college, but I never pursued it that much. I could be good at it though if I put all my energy into it.

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

    A successful musician! That is, being able to making a comfortable living doing what I love. I don't expect to be a rock star or anything like that.

    me+authority= problems.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?

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

    hmm... admittedly. but i need space just as much :p

    Are you really sarcastic?
    of course not, silly. that's mean

    Are you silly?
    only if you count decorating my car with small plastic toys, frequent skinny dipping and an obsession with cinnamon toast crunch i've had since i was six. oh wait maybe that's all just plain wierd. ahhh did i spell that right i don't know.

    Were you shy as a child?
    very... stuffed animal friends and all.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?
    i don't know? yeah probably, i think so.

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?
    nope, i've always been pretty good at expressing myself.

    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers?
    nope. which means i usually date about +5 years, which my dad doesn't like... :p.

    Are you a talented writer?
    yeah. i hate bragging... :/

    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)?
    can you tell me? please?
