    Sometimes big things come in small packages. I'm kind of liking only dealing with the desire to watch things burn; relatively easy to control though I do have a few outbursts here and there.

    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?
    Hmmm, a few friends have seen me angry. Apparently they either get scared or they want to help...

    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.
    You deserve it.

    I typically have to put effort into muting the effect some things in my environment have on me. Sometimes it requires more energy than an actual outburst. As long as you learn from the problems there's no reall issue in how you're dealing. Just sucks when your emotions get stuck on something before you even get a chance to have a genuine thought about it anywhere from a microsecond to a minute later.

    Considering all the things people have told me over the years, I'm not convinced the rest of the world is all that healthy.
    Yeah, I've had the thought that I'm only "weird" because I am mostly "normal".

    Some aspects of an unhealthy INFP:

    -loss of sense of self & self-identity
    -lack of self-confidence in even small tasks that normally pose no problem
    -cut-off from connections and the world
    -develops modes of thinking that are not true and may be based on misconceptions or false notions of events from the past
    -can become own worst enemy, not giving themselves as much benefit of the doubt as others do
    -can latch on to things that are familiar or create a familiar atmosphere
    -lacks direction and vision
    -indecisive & muddled: convinced one minute and questioning the next
    -irritable: usual good nature turns negative

    Under extreme stress, fatigue or illness, the INFP's shadow may appear - a negative form of ESTJ. Example characteristics are:

    * being very critical and find fault with almost everything
    * doing things to excess - e.g.: eating, drinking or exercising
    * becoming bossy or domineering and ignoring others' feelings
    * being pedantic about unimportant details
    Haha, I like how this is an unhealthy INFP, and yet, when I was healthiest and happiest in college I pretty much was exactly all these things. I found an ideal, was aghast to discover that people could live any other way, and threw my high expectations at others expecting them to see the world with my new rosey colored glasses and getting mad and disappointed when they didn't.

    May have annoyed a lot of people, but I was very happy.

    Looking at these posts definitely describes me at my worst. Also, when i'm depressed the whole works can see it in my face even though I try to hide it. Does this happen to other INFPs?
    If there is any hope for the world it can only be in small acts of personal kindness

    So, how does one confront an unhealthy INFP?

    Why do you need to confront them? I've never understood why people always want to confront other people - seems to do more damage than good. Confrontation in itself tends to be hostile and accusatory.

    I'd say distance yourself from them if you don't like them.

    If you must deal with them, then approach from the perspective of trying to understand them, being concerned, and generally being on their side. That tends to put a person's guard down and makes them more receptive to input.

    It was just a question.
    Thanks for the input.

    If this has already been addressed I apologize, but what causes an INFP to lash out towards others?

    ^ Typically you have to violate a VERY sacred core value. What's considered 'sacred' varies from person to person. Otherwise, we're cool, calm and collected. I can handle a lot (or not, I dunno ).
