I love how my INFP friend gets so amazed/excited by things all of the time- she's so easy to make happy!!! Very low maintenance chick who's fun to hang around with- can get a bit far out at times (things like the occasional desire to start a commune or join the circus), but definitley one of the people I most enjoy spending a free afternoon with! I don't see how anyone couldn't love them!
Oh wow that is definitely 100% me. I will jump up and down over an ice cream truck and within 24 hours come up with some crazy conspiracy theory or teach myself how to read a birth chart or practice Taoism. My exes never forget me and always say I was just a tad crazy lol.
Aww, thank you for this thread. It sounds really corny, but reading some of these posts makes me feel a lot better about myself, perceived flaws and all.
And yeah, I've had major depression for nearly a decade... I've just started taking medication and trying to make a real effort to help myself, but it's pretty hard. I think INFP's might be prone to depression more than other types because our emotions run so deep--at least mine, anyway. Suuucks.

INFP's just experience emotions rather deeply and internally, so they can be on a roller coaster at times. They want people to feel pleasant, open, or understood, so they may feel guilty or just not wish to expose their personal feelings in order to oblige a positive social mood. This will in turn work against them when they actually need to come to terms with said emotions.
They're rather intense and strangely psychic or something. They're like an emotional sponge, which I find fascinating. Their sensitivities to such a vibration is astounding, and I kinda feel bad for them since they get so absorbed and lost in it all (I can relate, except it's in thought for me). Otherwise they're extremely nice and charitable; their bleeding hearts are nothing but noble in my opinion.
