    Probably both. There's a need to express a lot because the level of sensitivity is higher.

    No coincidence that IxFPs are the stereotypical artist/musician/poet types, IMO. Not that Fi means you're broken, but you are prone to such high sensitivity.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Agreed with OA in that both can play a role. Emotional pain can provide both creative inspiration as well as provide the energy to express it. Any sensitivity might make it easier to experience the emotional pain.

    Being an INFP its like being tie to a baloon seeing so many great things from the sky that many others cant, but sometime you wanna touch those things but you cant cause the tie is too strong to untie.

    Most of the time I'm just bantering. So thank you!
    You may be horribly egotistical, but ENTPs somehow make that a good thing! Seriously, I always love it when ENTPs get all confident (it's probably to make up for my lack of it) because they do it in a way that doesn't seem obnoxious (Robert Downey Jr comes to mind as a popular example). I think we should have an ENTP praise thread just because of you, substitute! I LOVE LOVE LOVE ENTPs because they always seem to understand us the best (my mom is an ENTP and I don't know how I would live without her constant love and support). And if I could be another type I would be an ENTP. So many of my role models in this world are ENTPs so keep doing what you guys do best because us INFPs can't get enough of it!

    Today was a really crappy day for me and I went on this thread and I instantly felt better (even though I have a crap ton of work to do now). So much so that I became a member just cause this thread. So on behalf of all INFPs everywhere. THANK YOU
    Much love. Stay classy.

    If INFP's ruled the world then....wait
    ...it just doesnt work that way...

    By definition we can not rule the world...
    if somehow we did...we would (quickly) shirk the job.

    In all of the history of the USA we had one INFP president.
    only one....and he was said to be a great 'man' but a lousy
    politician, "worst President ever" many people say.

    some people say that even he was not INFP, MEANING
    there was NEVER such a president .

    please note here if you believe (or know) that Jimmi Carter
    was INFP. PLEASE THANK YOU.

    Pop music plays to the lowest common denominator and the LCD is shallow, empty and nasty and so naturally is pop music.

    It's a positive feedback loop between the empty, shallow and nasty and their music. They reinforce one another. They are like reinforced concrete - stronger together than they are apart.

    Classical music requires discipline, depth and good taste - qualities abhorrent to pop music.

    So the fate of the pop musicians is only a reflection of their music.
    the list of classical composers who were alcoholics is a long one...

    Doesn't surprise me that so many artists turn to drugs/alcohol to fuel their inner worlds.

    Some kind of escape from reality, maybe?

    Or maybe just a chance to see it through a different colored lens.

    Been recommended into picking up a copy of this book. The idea fascinates me. http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Trip-Ech...s=olivia+laing
