    So... ENFP's are happy. INFJ's are happy more than unhappy. INFP's usually aren't happy. ENFJ's couldn't care less either way.

    i don't know one happy infp irl. they are all discontent, and the more changes they make to try and become content, like divorce, seems to just make them more pathetically unhappy.

    Generally yes, I have satisfaction in most areas of life and I am happy with it.

    I'm studying what I love, while I'm not rich, I'm comfortable and I have pretty close friends and a very good boyfriend.

    I'm rather dissatisfied in the sense I think I haven't achieved enough but I have the rest of my life to do that. Could use more money (Who doesn't?!?) and been through some tough times but I have overcome it
    I am an ENFP but I value justice over mercy.

    Being human is hard. Being INFP is... well, my first thirty years were crap. It's taken me five more years of studying emotional intelligence, but I'm happy now. And about time!

    . I would've concluded: ENFP's are happy. INFJ's are happy and smartasses. Some INFP's are happy, some don't like giving themselves labels, and some are not happy. ENFJ's don't exist.

    I'm happy until I think about it.

    Of course, you may just not reset because you may end up unhappier.

    Default What is happiness?

    I am beginning to believe that happiness is the ability to live in the moment - in the sense of just enjoying the present, not letting the past or future take over.

    It's different from living purely for or on impulse like I have in the past. It also doesn't mean ignoring or sweeping the past under a large rug. I'm getting better at making peace with the past, preparing for the future but living only in the present. I'm learning how to do this and like it so far....

    well, that's awesome! maybe it just takes y'all a few decades to figure it out? do you think that what you go through as infp somehow evens out, or rewards you in other ways others can't achieve? like, does your suffering and exploration of life bring you to a place where you end up having a better understanding of things/life and more peace? or can an infp really only expect/hope to be basically content?

    i was going to write some version of this too. but then i realized, and have before, that as infj i derive much of my happiness from living in the future, and feeling content about that in the present moment, because that is how i simply work. as enfp, i am sure you are happiest living in the moment, based on what i know about enfps, plus p types in general seem to be able to do this more.

    like all the self-help books, buddhism, other philosophies talk about the Goal being to live in the moment, but i have come to believe, while there are benefits to that way of living for most, that it is not really how some people are made. and to force myself to think and feel and live only in the moment is really doing myself a disservice in many ways and not being who i really am.
