    Unhappy Help!! Help this sad INFP, pretty please.

    Hey there! How are you all?
    Alright so,
    I feel like I have all the qualities that are depicted in the profile of an INFP minus all the "INFPs are the greatest!" thing.
    I'm a bit critical and a TAD mean sometimes because I was raised mostly with an INTP
    And I GREATLY lack patience.
    Yet patience and kindness are the 2 most valued qualities of INFPs
    So, lol, do I also fail at being an INFP?
    or am i just unhealthy or what? you decide, this is my family [to aid in seeing how I could/couldn't be unhealthy]:
    Mom- eccentric ENFP
    Dad- manipulative ISTP
    Brother- Condescending INTP
    Brother- RUDE, pretentious ENFJ
    Sister- Harsh, brutal ISTJ

    Doubt and humility. Definitely INFP.

    So you think you have all of the qualities basically (the one you can't relate to isn't there)? Why are you questioning that you're an INFP?

    EDIT: I was raised by an INTP and I'm a very nice person... That didn't make me mean. Perhaps you're shadowing due to stress. I lack patience in certain areas, but not too many.

    LOL - Couldn't help but notice that you matched all your family with negative aspects of there type as well... eccentric, manipulative, condescending, rude, pretentious, harsh, and brutal! Sounds like you've got a great family

    According to my Condescending INTP Manual on INFP behavior.. what you need is a hug. So... eh.. er...

    what if INFP is your shadow? That could cause lack of patience and kindness. Why did you list the negatives of your family?

    INFP: If we are unhappy, we use our powers of insight to see the worst in people.

    Patience is usually a quality of a happy INFP though. When I am extremely stressed that can sometimes go out the window. All my mental will is being spent on keeping myself from falling apart at the seems, and I don't have much tolerance for external pressures making that more difficult.

    aw.. I didn't mean that INTPs are condescending.
    I meant that all the people in my family had those basic defining qualities.
    I'm not trying to bring out the worst in them, I love them.
    I'm just saying, if I said that they were all sweet - which they're not - it wouldn't really be relevant to the post @ all.
    I said it so u could see if whatever the quality + the personality type = damaging to Infp.
    Guess not. =P
    and thank you. Here's a back, and some guns

    More hugs.

    Aw, I think you're fine. I get impatient, too. And we all have those dark not-so-nice moments. What makes us INFP is the intense guilt/doubt afterwards, right? About us being good people?

    PS: Don't worry too much about being raised with an INTP. They can be very positive support, too, ya know. (Actually, I'm sure you know--siblings are great little love/hate people. Impossible to hate them completely!)

    DISCLAIMER: If I offend you, I'm 99.9% sure it's unintentional. So be sure to let me know, m'kay? (And yes, an INFP would stick this in their signature, lol.)
