    Smile Do INFJs play with characters like INFPs do

    If so, how do you go about doing it? Do you imagine real life people and go on about daydreaming? How often does this take place?

    Daydream of or create a person in ones mind or behave like another person, or did I understand this all wrong?

    I have stories going on in my head all the time.

    In a virtual world (aka from a book) a bunch of characters went on an adventure and did X. Sometimes I placed myself into the plot... but it's not exactly "real life"... unless I'm rehearsing in head what I needed to do.

    No, we INFJ's don't create characters like INFP's do, we aren't as fantastically methodical, as our rich inner life bounces around from idea to idea and back again, based on many preconceptions, building layers and layers of depth, from jumbled sources. INFP's can take something as small as a speck of dust (dr. seuss) and build a more and more grandiose scenario around it with their intuitive way of describing their finely tuned, natural introverted feelings. INFJ's I'd say think more in the ideal as the summation, and the INFP with the Ideal as the foundation. I'd even go so far as to say, INFP's are better writers, and INFJ's are better actors. An INFP - INFJ couple, especially in hollywood, could be a considerable force, as they are true complements.

    I create storylines in my head if that's what you mean. Also, I normally use people irl, but sometimes there'll be crossovers with books I've read, movies I've seen, stories I've heard, etc. As to how often, all the time. Even if I'm talking to someone, I'll still be daydreaming.

    I wish there was more information about how INFPs "play with characters," since I'm not even sure if I understand this thread correctly.

    However, I agree with the above posts; I constantly have storylines and characters roaming through my mind everyday.

    I always thought it was a mild form of multiple personality disorder
    I dunno, characters just come alive in my head, but yes, quite often sparked by an idea.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
