    They look like this...perhaps more on the inside than the outside for many.

    When they're out of control emotionally, they're like this.

    I'm glad and sad at the same time I've found this thread. It explains a lot. It seems I'm dating pretty unhealthy INFP. So now that I've nailed it, does anyone have suggestions how to deal with such person and stay sane or the best is to let it go? I don't know if this is allowed, I apologise in advance if so but please be kind and take a look at my thread, no answers yet. http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...ationship.html

    You know...if everyone thinks about it, we're all mentally unhealthy at least one or more points in our lives no matter what type you are.

    Good point! The thing about being unhealthy too, is that you're generally more understanding of people who are going thru their phase of unhealthiness (unless you're still ashamed of it, in which case, you're probably unreasonably tough on them)

    I had a tough spell after which I wanted to write an apology to every person I ever knew. Thankfully I did not follow thru with it, haha.
    Seriously, probably no one remembers how desperately awful I was except me.





    (I hope)

I think I was surrounded by a crap ton of INFP negativity by several INFPs plus I had some anxiety back then.

    However, I still believe that someone who thrives on negativity is unhealthy.
    Nope, that doesn't make me happy to hear. I'm actually pretty disgusted by the use of the words "unhealthy" and "negative"...are these subjective, or objective assessments?

    I know that this will seem like an "unhealthy" philosophy, but I stick to it. If the society is fucked, it makes no sense to be "healthy" within it.

    Judge me as you will.

    I honestly don't care to judge you because you were the one to get offended over my ancient post.
    It's based on my perception on what I consider unhealthy INFPs to look like based on theorising and personal experience. I am not one to glorify things.

    Besides not all INFPs are the same way. My INFP mother is exactly the opposite of that.

    Socially withdrawn or awkward, as if wanting to express their opinions but forcefully holding them back because of deep seated insecurities. Also very self conscious and overtly concerned with others' opinions of them, and because of that, struggle to reconcile their own values and ideals with reality when others fall short of our perfectionist standards (of course they do, they're only human). They don't understand why the world is "like that" and hate it most of the time and are pretty much very unhappy, very moody and emotionally unstable, and can be huge emotional vampires.

    Like an INFP with emphasized negative qualities (even more withdrawn, melancholy, sensitive, larger disconnect between the inner and outer world) that slips into ESTJ shadow at the drop of a hat.
