    I think INFPs are perfect as they are.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    One should see perfection even through sometimes meaningless flaws.

    Perfection although taking many forms means you have to take control of everything, no errors, perfect performances to be totally competent. Name me one individual who is capable of that. Those expectations are far to high, you can only disappoint yourself which can lead to depression.
    A perfectionists mindset means you will find flaws, how frustrating must that be to others and yourself.

    Jeez. Lower the bar and live a happy and healthy life.

    LISTEN


    TO



    ME
    Yes, this is very important when dealing with an INFP.

    Listening.....it doesn't hurt you know.
    Just remember this is a two way street. With some people, you have to hear them out before they will be willing to listen to you. However, if you hear them out and they still won't listen to your side, then you need to find someone new in your life.

    I'll put my INFP stamp of approval on this thread
    ... They say that knowledge is free, and to truly acquire wisdom always comes with a price... Well then,... That will be $10, please!

    Is it just me, or is there almost an angelic feel to most INFP's/

    I know that. Maybe they aren't perfect to everybody..but they are perfect in my eyes. It's simple.

    consider it "aspriing for an ideal" instead of "seeking perfection"

    I don't understand how this comment can be made. There hasn't been enough information here to make a judgement on either one's behavior.

    You are not just playing with words here. Aspiring for an (your) ideal is still going to be perfection in your eyes due to the morals and values you place on it/that/them etc.

    P.S. I love spinning words also.
