    i mean come on... isn't that the best part of life, anyhow? the adventures you can get into?

    Being shown how to enjoy that real world instead of considering it the evil overlord it appears to be for forcing you out of your dreamworld..is actually a very good thing, so I can see why he loves that you do that
    The real world has a habit of being disappointing at it's best and annoyingly counter productive at it's worst. I'd love to go for real adventures in the physical if only I had people with me who were reliable enough to go with. Wonderlust, if he's enjoying going with you, you're likely being one of those rare people who are actually fun or reliable to do those things with. He must love you very much just for doing that for him alone. I find that inside there's a dragon always looking to burn the world down and by willpower I'm always fighting to keep it under control. As disciplined as I can look to the outside world there's a part of me that just wants to see it burn; and it hurts every time I see it in my mind's eye.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Somehow there's something unhealthy or unbalanced - or perhaps without perspective - to talk only about the 'unhealthy' side of people... yes.. it's people you're talking about here. I realize that was the question/thread, but you can't have one without the other. And for such a sorry (unhealthy) looking/feeling bunch, INFPs sure have contributed a lot to the world.

    I'd venture to say that after sensors, INFPs get bagged on the most here. Considering we're known to be sensitive, I think the INFPs take it pretty well though.

    If you check the "what you like about INFP" threads, it's mostly INFPs posting .

    I can kinda relate to the dragon thing...only if you shrink it a tad *is short*, lock it in a mighty safe and then throw it into the ocean. Then pump it with vindictive (Too emotionally switched off to be self aware), dark, indulgent and boundlessly selfish.

This last type would rationalize EVERYTHING to themselves so they can keep up the fanatsy...so when you start wanting to be a real person, they run or push you away.
    Almost to a t, only emotionally unavailable even to myself when unhealthy.

    Do any of you find there are close friends (even best friends) who'll bemusedly tell you they've realised they've never seen you get angry, not once?

    In general, F dom = devil and N dom = awesome in flesh form. ENFJ and INFP get criticism while INFJ and ENFP get praise.

    Yeah, but those who bag us seem to think we are great when they need someone to talk to.

    Considering all the things people have told me over the years, I'm not convinced the rest of the world is all that healthy.

    thank you for the compliment!

    and how wonderfully descriptive you've made your world, even though it sounds sad to me. i had a short time in my life where i viewed the world in such a way, but it's truly not in my deep nature to think of it like that. i feel like you can make your own world and rules for it, and if you wish, never be too deeply distraught again on where it takes you over.

    then again, i've been told by some to stop "running away" from my problems. i don't see it as running away as much as it's identifying them, and then going from there on what will make it work/make me feel better.
