    Default I don't think you NerFs actually want to find your "type"

    Like 90 percent of the "What's my type?" threads are started by NFs, or NerFs for short.

    Thing is, you guys keep going on and on and on and on and on and analyzing and rehashing all this stuff to find your "true type," and you usually find it, but then you get restless and have to go searching again because if you are content with who you are then you no longer have anything to do.

    This is the essence of the NF "search for self." And you play it out before our very eyes right here on this here very here message board. I want to hug you all. Yes, even the dudes. And tell you to relax, you don't need to worry about your "true type" or "true self." But I know that would be pointless. You are pre-destined to spin around in these circles for however long you are on this planet - or else become those guru dudes who sit with their legs folded for all eternity saying cryptic stuff to people who ask them questions.

    At least, maybe, take a break from it. Even though I know you will go back to it, just, maybe, enjoy a milkshake or smell a flower (i know that's really cliche) but you know, something. Check in with some reality around you that is there to discover besides the neverending paradox in your head. Sometimes let some of that brain juice just seep out and hit the floor. I promise it will not kill cute squirrels.

    Hopefully this does not sound like a lecture. I do not come from a position of superiority in any way. I have my own cycles and paradoxes, including the one that for some reason leads me to this website when it is not about anything that I actually like.

    Hang in there, NerFs, I am on your side, even when you drive me crazy. I wish the best for you, and I hope when it's all said and done and you're riding that escalator to the sky, that you can finally find some peace.

    Yes, even Victor.

    love,

    Jeffster.

    xNFPs. To be exact.

    I don't know, I like being my type and I don't see myself ever questioning if I actually am my type. I also don't believe a type defines me as a person, so it could never be the essence of my true self (which I found a long time ago, in case you were wondering).

    That's because being an INFJ is so freaking awesome.

    Yeah, I believe it's more of an NFP thing. I think they do it with other people, as well. My ENFP sister constantly changes her mind about what types she thinks everyone is. The other day she made the claim that my ESFJ mother was an ENFP... when before that it was an INFJ... and ENFJ... and ISFJ I guess it's just their Ne seeing all those possibilities :P
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    I prefer "uNFs," but just because it's funner to say.

    Your thread is made of lol and greatness. If you think nf's need an identity snuggie, you should head over to the type 4 thread! :o

    That's not exact. There's an x in it.

    I was wondering. Thanks for clearing that up. I was sitting here, for many hours, forgoing food and beverages, just clamoring, CLAMORING to know if Lauren Ashlee..oops, sossy..er, sorry, Lauren Ashley..yes! I got it right...uh, what was I saying? Oh yeah, if Lauren Ashley had found her true self. Now, at last, I can finally sleep.

    Aww.

    Y'know, this makes a lot of sense.
    Though I've never doubted my type personally, I believe a lot of NFs generally spiral out into their own heads and get lost in all the possibilities, and have to question everything, and get mired in the details, and questioning the details, in this infinite internal quest. We search for truth and meaning, not just for the self, but for everything that exists, and anything that doesn't.. it's an endless loop, and, while it's great fun for the most part, we do tend to forget the here and now, perhaps moreso than other types.


    I think we're apt to pride ourselves on being able to step away from the concrete and float freely about in our own abstract abyss, and see things from so many different angles... and hey, why not? It's funny though.. in all of our travels, with all of our 'sight,' concrete reality seems to remain in our peripheral view, or is a blindspot entirely.
    So much for that sage, all-seeing crap.

    Learning how to balance the vast space exploration in our own heads with living in the moment, allowing yourself to exist in and for that one endless now, is something I've been learning to do recently. It was a hard, messy crashlanding here on Earth, but I've never felt more at peace with uncertainty than I do now. Letting go of some of that restlessness, and allowing myself to feel the ground beneath my feet, has actually helped clear away a lot of debris obstructing my own path in life.

    I can't always know where I'm headed specifically, but things are certainly a lot clearer in this singular moment. Here. Now. And it's a sense of lightness that I can't begin to articulate adequately. I'm not even sure the words exist.


    I suggest NF-space cadets get out there and make friends with some SP terrestrials; they're a great little health supplement.

    I think making the longest what's my type thread ever is quite an achievement. I didn't know we had decided on NF or NFP yet .
