    Yeah, I guess I wasn't really thinking when I posted this..

    I have accepted that I am an INFP
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I would totally agree with this statement. Here I let off a lot of 'silly steam', whereas if you knew me in real life, you might assume I were INFP or something else because I'm quite serious and rational at my job, for example (many people have even assumed I was a T!!!!!!)

    However, on the general whole, I don't know if I should admit this fact, but I'm like a real-life Bridget Jones hahaha. (And my husband is like Mark Darcy - it's funny we laugh our asses off at that movie!!!!)

    Bud, I don't see why you need to take it so seriously. It's a label, if you try to live within the confines of the label you're going to be unhappy. Labels are convenient but are ultimately rigid. Human are designed to be flexible.

    Supposedly I am INFP, every time I test it says INFP. Yet from what I have seen, my behavior is far from typical. And it bothers me not at all.

    nothing at all like what you were saying but i felt like sharing anyway.
    Completely identify with this... If I am around the wrong people I too get really sick! I am also quite sensitive to other peoples states of being both mental and physical... I have for example, Had symptoms of a hangover when with someone who had one and have also had symptoms of various other illnesses etc and realised after over hearing something that I had 'caught' it from the people around me. Loads of weird stories about that HAHAHA I'm starting to realise that it's a little offbeat isn't it....

    Oh and yes Erina I was referring to the shy awkward thing. I think there is an awkward shyness to us that gets completely overlooked by our enthusiasm to be around people
    ... couldn't drag me away

    Alright..I overlooked this way too much..I just need to let it be. I won't be updating this thread anymore, as it has no point to me anymore, and it was a mistake..thanks for your advice though!

    Huh, I thought a (somewhat) similar thing happened to me when I was in the room on an interview shoot (the subject was another ENFP, interestingly enough), and it really seemed like whenever I was looking at him, he would sort of stumble in the interview. I convinced myself that I was imagining it, but I looked down anyway, and it *did* seem to work; he finished the interview fine when I was looking away. I shrugged it off as a coincidence.

    I like to think of myself as atypical... but I'm probably not really.

    No one is secure in their INFPness. Ever. It's complusory.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
