    I think the INFP description is a bit silly... seeing the world through rose colors glasses and everything good or bad or optimistic or gloomy.
    I'll admit I see that you guys are off in la-la land at times but its not that bad.

    I haven't met an INFP that I haven't liked. I've lived with 2, so far that I can think of. My aunt and my current roommate. They are kind and cordial, friendly and always seem pretty outgoing for introverts. Fun, smart, gentle.

    Only negatives I can think of are laziness and lack of practicality. They end up getting everything done in their own time but seems like they are a bit adversed to working. (The ones that I know all share these 2 similar qualities. They each have their own bad and good qualities as well, but I won't mention them since they are individual related and not type related. ) Only about half have the laziness. About 90% have the lack of practicality.

    Don't think I've ever gotten into an argument with an INFP, besides some small tiffs with my aunt that lasted all of 2.9 seconds. Never had a reason to. And I like that they're just laid back that way.

    It's interesting how INFPs encourage people in personal growth. By which I mean encourages people to explore hobbies, strengths and interests. It's a great benefit to a close friendship / dating realtionship with an INFP.

    ^ Are you INFP or INFJ?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Lazy... check
    Impractical... check

    Motivation is something I severely lack especially when things aren't going so great. As for impracticality, this is something impossible for me to alter - its way too ingrained. I am more than aware of the fact that I'm completely useless in general and what an incovenience this is for my friends and family.

    Basically, if something needs to get done I need extra motivating factors. The best ones being: shame, guilt, desperation or an immovable deadline.

    I work hard and have a ton of ambition, but will admit I have a laziness problem. Objectively I'm not lazy, but I feel like I am. Perhaps this is just the perfectionist in me speaking because this is not making much sense now is it?

    Things I don't like about myself, which could potentially apply to INFPs:

    I think too much instead of getting stuff done.
    I get trapped in my feelings, they can get obsessive.
    I'm always considering my options instead of living.
    I'm always seeing multiple sides to every issue to the point it seems like I don't have an opinion.
    I am way too self-absorbed.
    I am a perfectionist to the point of paralysis.

    Things I like about myself, which could potentially apply to INFPs:

    I will defend anyone and anything I think is being treated unfairly or cruelly.
    I believe in the value and potential of the individual.
    I have a big heart, even if I don't usually show it.
    I try to understand things thoroughly, not be judgmental.
    I would never become part of a mob, follow the herd.
    I know how to use language.
    I hate speaking for others or making generalities about people.
    I am a perfectionist.

    I actually am lazy, and I try to find ways to be even lazier. I pull stuff off at the last minute though (after goofing around for hours), so I'm mostly able to avoid being called lazy by others. It's on the tip of people's tongues, and then I'm like, "Look, I finished this!". Then I go back to being lazy
