    Default INFJs and death

    I think that INFJs experience death differently than all the other types. Being only 0.5% of the entire human population, their function pattern forms a unique way of perception, which also covers death.
    For other types it is basically just an ending of life, but I imagine INFJs reach a moment a clarity, which actually persists postmortem. Think of it as an endless black void that is then filled with the values of all humanity, life and the entire universe. All that knowledge gathers into one tiny spot, which is the INFJ's consciousness, and from there starts expanding, but this time with traces of the INFJ in it. An INFJ becomes a part of the universe, in every sense of the word.

    So, that is my theory, now do any INFJs have experiences in that field?

    wait, what ?
    Life and so consciousness is hardware based, once you lose the hardware the 'patterns' just break down as it's all one thing. Dualism doesn't make any sense (i could explain but it pains my brain so only if somebody really want to know the reasons).
    INFJs have experiences in that field?
    dunno, ask a dead person

    what was the point of that post again? A snarky joke of sorts?

    This is not very funny, actually.

    Why do some INFPs always want to make snarky comments about INFJs?

And, yes, INFJs talk about themselves a lot in INFJ threads because they want to understand themselves. I don't see what the crime in that is, except that immature NFPs feel left out and thus try to get their "digs" in. Pathetic.

    Yes, envy is hilarious. It let's you know you're doing something right.

    Well, I enjoy all kinds of attention, even indirect, passive-aggressive attention. So envious INFPs can keep making snide comments. No such thing as bad press! It's only encouraging people to pay more attention to INFJs.

    Is it a bad sign that I halfway believed the OP was being serious? I had problems understanding what he tried to say, but I at least gave him the benefit of the doubt that he wasn't pulling our leg...

    But it's true the INFJ perception of death is not conventional. Neither is the INFJ perception of almost everything else. Someone needs to write that down: we have almost a phobia of the conventional, the mundane, and the mediocre in all its forms.

    Wait, the OP wasnt serious? I prefer to give the benefit of the doubt anyways.

    I think my view of death is pretty optimistic since I grew up in a christian family. I view life as one shot and then death as the culmination of what you did. For life, there is indiviuality +God and in death there is a pure fusion with Him that trancends all physical imagination.

    I don't mind the dead bit, its the dying I have fears about.

    But it's true the INFJ perception of death is not conventional. Neither is the INFJ perception of almost everything else. Someone needs to write that down: we have almost a phobia of the conventional, the mundane, and the mediocre in all its forms.
