    I consider myself an INFP. I tend to have a whimsical state of mind. I can get side-tracked and suppress whimsical or intense feelings suddenly and vice versa... It doesn't take much for that to happen to me. On the surface it may look like I'm running "hot and cold", but I'm really just redirecting attention to a more serious matter that requires me to use logical 'Thinking'; which I'm very good at, but it takes energy to do, I need space with no external (emotional) stimuli to do it well. I'll also withdraw like that if I get too much emotional stimuli (suddenly) that I have to process through. I'll "appear" to ignore people when I need to recharge too.

    With that said, it may seem I'm "ignoring" people; however, that is farther from the truth, I'm very much aware of people, even when it seems I'm "ignoring" them. I'm still "tuned in". If I perceive someone is about to have an emotional break down when I'm "appearing to ignore them", I'll suddenly spring back to life to ease their mind.

    With that said, it may seem I'm "ignoring" people I care about sometimes; however, that is farther from the truth, I'm very much aware of people, even when it seems I'm "ignoring" them. I'm still "tuned in" from a distance. If I perceive someone is about to have an emotional break down when I'm "appearing to ignore them", I'll suddenly spring back to life to ease their mind.
    Child like is more like how I would describe an INTPs emotions, simple and to the point. INFPs I would describe as more complex in that way.

    I believe you are projecting a bit here though and really don't have a decent reply to what you have said as it doesn't really relate to my own experiences.

    One point though, ignoring is ignoring, you may not think you are in your own dream ideal world but in actual reality you are

    hmm... Makes sense, you might be right about that.

    An immature INFP is just about the worst thing you can ever come across.
    A mature INFP... now that's a whole different story.

    I adore INFPs in general though. They're cutesy and all that, you know? Like innocent little kids at times (no, that is NOT supposed to be demeaning ).

    I find it remarkable how INFPs seem frail, but can go against... tides of misfortune, per say.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    Sometimes these hands are so clumsy
    that I drop things and people laugh.
    Sometimes these hands are so graceful
    that I see them signing autographs.

    Sometimes this face is so funny
    that I hide it behind a book.
    Sometimes this face has so much class
    that I have to sneak a second look.

    Sometimes this life is so scary
    that I become afraid.
    Then I remember you're in it
    and I think I might still have it made.

    What I want to know from you
    when you hear my plea.
    Do you like or love
    either or both of me?

    PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE OMG.

    This is actually one of the things that made me realize that I can't possibly be one.

    Well, that, and I have trouble shutting up.

    I love INFPs. Kind and thoughtful and really really deep.

    So what's an immature INFP look like vs. a mature INFP?

    I've seen it said before that a clingy INFP is a no-no. Any advice for an INFP that has a dominant sx variant (Enneagram) on how to be... less clingy/possessive of those close to them? Opinions?

    I wonder if the immature INFP are the more passive aggressive, victim-y ones, and the mature INFP are the more self-aware, honest ones.
