Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.
I apologize if I'm intruding. To me, many INFP's can be intensely moody and I start to confuse their emotions for mine. I can pinpoint when they get angry and vice versa. I'm very good at reading INFPs so it becomes a toxic connection for both parties. I could tell whenever my INFP teachers were the least bit agitated even if no one else could. This became pretty weird after awhile. Note: most INFPs I've met are wonderful people and make good friends but they tend to make me more stressed than relaxed.
i agree 100%. when they are stressed, they want to be around people who they find to be good people who are just being themselves. comfortably co-existing. friendly faces. just the presence helps, as it still allows them space to work thru it and doesn't try to peer into them and upset them or invade their privacy/see too deeply into them and embarrass them.
but for me (infj), to be yourself means connecting deeply, clearing away the layers and revealing what is underneath. it is VERY DIRECT and penetrating. which gets a bit uncomfortable when infp doesn't even want to make direct eye contact (figuratively speaking), and makes the relationship feel way too cluttered and clunky when our communication styles are not at all lining up. it's frustrating bc i adore infp, but i just haven't figured out how to relate more productively. like i have to purposefully misdirect my attention to compensate.
