If anything, we have values we'll suffer quite a bit for (or always have suffered for), so obviously they were formed through some other means.
    I'm a little hedonistic

    I'll come back and comment later....The last paragraph was good, though those moods don't always last just a couple of hours for me sometimes....I like the phase "Long dark night"....some how appropriate language. I'll explain later if I get the time and am not distracted, there's a whole concept behind which seems in keeping the INFP profile.

    This is cool, someone should get started on an ISFP one, I'm too lazy though.

    ISFP is part of Costrin and mine's Typology overview. We will get there and make an accurate one. What we have been doing so far is we get the people of whatever type to describe themselves in a few paragraphs, like an intro to a profile that gives sort of an overview. They can add in as much as they wish, stuff about functions etc. Then after we have made the profile we will send it to ISFPs for their evaluation.

    So don't worry, your turn will come. The next ones in the works are ISTJ and INTP. If you wish we can do ISFP after we have accomplished our current goals.

    I just discovered that the edit I put in to fix the "only a couple of hours" part on the "mood" didn't go through. Thank you for pointing this out fiery, O_O. I have no idea why it didn't go through.

The only way I can be creative is by writing, and it does bring me joy.
    By inner life, I meant imagination mainly. This is something almost all INFPs report. It seems much more vivid than some other people's.
    As for creativity, I think the functions may influence the way we are creative (ie. may be more conceptual than hands-on). That's what I am suggesting to explore.

    Interesting. I especially like that Se as the 'debating' function - I have a strong passion for debate. I also like the idea of the weirdness being a result of Ne. I would even prefer a little more on that. Also like the following lines/paragraphs:
    It also grants them empathy toward others, in a sense that they feel what the other person is feeling unconsciously, and also allows them to see through other's eyes.

    If their emotional state is a good one they will do everything better while in that state. It's like mental adrenaline.

    It's all relative to the individual as to how sensitive they are, some INFPs may purely go by the person's intent and feel good about that, disregarding if something simply sounded negative.

    The Extroverted Intuition of an INFP will be used to make connections between things and to read in between the lines. Ne allows an INFP to see the possibilities of information coming in, allowing them to see how it could change and vary.

    Ne also is a great people reading function, with it's use to possibly predict the actions or thoughts of others. Ne is also an INFP's advise function, meaning that they will primarily use Ne to give advice to people or to make suggestions. This makes INFPs and INTPs give off an impression of eccentricy when they are giving advice, since they are thinking of possibilities out of thin air with no real base besides a theory. Even though this is completely natural for them, it will appear that they have a "think outside of the box" attitude to others.

    Tertiary- Introverted Sensing/Si: Introverted Sensing is a staple for INFPs. Even though it's tertiary it's usually being put into good use by remembering specific details, and also remembering how things were. When an INFP takes in information, they will process it through their Fi, Ne, and Si. The Si part of an INFP will remember the details about an experience or thing, and relate it to how it was before and will check for changes or inconsistencies. Ne is the fuzzy part of an INFP's perception of the world, and Si is the concrete part of an INFP's perception of the world. An INFP will remember the details of something, and this is put into use especially when making decisions for leisure. How did this make me feel before? What about it made me feel this way? Questions like that will be asked and answered in their heads. If Fi and Ne fail them in a situation then Si will take command, checking for details and linking them to past experiences. Si is the INFP's relief function, meaning that use of this function is generally used for relief and reassurance. With this in mind ISFJs and ISTJs make excellent people to be in an INFP's life, due to their dominant Si.

    Extroverted Thinking is a very good tool for INFPs. It allows them to rationalize a situation or a problem of theirs, more often than not resolving the problem whether it's personal or emotional. When everything else fails for an INFP they will resort to Te (if they don't already resort to Te), and they will rationalize their feelings and try to make sense of everything. It's a tool for closure, for inner harmony. Extroverted thinking allows INFPs to see the logical boundries of things and the logical reasons behind why things happen, so if they turn to this then they can eliminate a source of negative feelings from the picture. This can mean asserting your problem toward someone onto the causer of the negative feelings etc.

    Te in INFPs is also a tool for debate, for applying logical reasoning to a situation rather than how you feel. If INFPs find a nice balance of this then they will do very well in life.

    They will remember random negative emotions from decades ago and will feel them vividly.
    I really like the clarity in these statements. I think you may need to review the rest and try to reduce down some of what you say to simpler, clearer sentences.

    If you don't mind , a little more constructive criticism:
    Quote Originally Posted by BlackCat View Post
    Overview: INFP- Introverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving. INFPs are idealistic people at the core, they always make distinctions between "good" and "bad" in their mind when presented with anything in life. It seems to be natural to do this, to have a very innate sense of what is right and what is wrong. INFPs are driven by their inner life, which is a net of emotions and attachments (negative and positive), this net is constantly being added to over time and starts developing at a very young age. This net of emotions is what is commonly where most decisions are made along (they are also made with values), it stores all past emotions. An INFP's values come from the inner world, and their values are subjective based on the person's experiences and philosophies in life. An INFP will generally avoid bad feelings, and with use of the net they naturally remember how to avoid them. A value is formed when a bad or good emotion is felt over and over by a common event, an example would be if the INFP really disliked spinach then they would make it a value to avoid spinach and try to not eat it again.

    An INFP's idealism is often inspired by a vision that they have as to how the world could be improved, the way the world SHOULD be. This will generally moderate an INFP's attitude, inspiring them to act on what would be best for a "greater good" in the situations they find themselves in. This may include curing ignorance, helping someone, or setting up for a good future. This view of how the world should be will either make them optimistic or pessimistic in their attitude. The pessimists will generally hope for the best but expect the worst, the optimists will hope for the best and expect the best. This is purely relative to the person.
    I don't know about INFPs being so decisive about good and bad. I'm not decisive about these things - in fact I see things from many points of view simulataneously. I will argue from different perspectives (even if its not naturally my own) trying to tease out the truth, provoke people to think bigger or merely to show the complexity of morality. Usually I end up with more questions than answers. I see what you are getting at (the idea of the importance of values etc) but I think it needs to be altered slightly. This may be just me though...

    My main problem is that you are a little to specific in some areas without enough variation. Lets face it INFPs get a bad rap for being emotional wimps and are pretty harshly stereotyped. I just feel like more general description would be beneficial. You mention that INFPs see the world effectively through the prism of their emotions/values (metaphors - how appropriate ); Why not describe more ways this is shown? You seem to over-describe some things and under-describe others - try to broaden it. One of my favourite descriptions of INFPs is the most broad and the most non-specific:

    "Idealistic, warm, caring, creative, imaginative, original, artistic, perceptive, supportive, empathetic, cooperative, facilitative, compassionate, responsive, sensitive, gentle, tenderhearted, devoted, loyal, virtuous, self-critical, perfectionist, self-sacrificing, deep, multifaceted, daydreamer, persistent, determined, hard-working, improviser, initiator of new projects and possibilities, agents of change. Drawn to possibilities, 'what could be' rather than 'what is.' Values-oriented with high level of personal integrity. Their focus is on understanding themselves, personal growth, and contributing to society in a meaningful way. If their career does not express their idealism and drive for improvement, they usually become bored and restless. Dislike conflict, dealing with trivialities, and engaging in meaningless social chatter. Needs a private work space, autonomy, and a minimum of bureaucratic rules." Some of the best novelists are INFPs. Suggested careers: Counselor, artist, and journalist. INFPs are prone to depression when they cannot meet their own sense of perfection or the expectations of others. The very often accept blame, even when it's not deserved, and really dwell on how bad they think they are, but they are not likely to let people know that. They also tend to write me the nicest letters.

    I hope this helps

    The good and bad thing felt iffy. The sentence that was supposed to replace for clarity also felt iffy. Maybe it's jinxed.

    I'm thinking that it may just be you. Most INFPs I know have a very distinct view of what's "good" and what's "bad" in their life. Maybe it's an unconscious process for some people. Care to explain more?

    I've read through that profile you posted and it's pretty good. I was hoping to give someone a different perspective though.

    I will do some revision tomorrow. Thanks for actually pointing out what was clear and what wasn't.
