    This seems counter to reason, but I feel the same way. I do have times when I feel I need to be around people (more so than when I was younger), but the feeling of alienation is so strong when around groups it can make me feel worse then being alone.

    1. Do you think you're sometimes more selfish, mean, and less lovey-dovey than what people think us to be?
    Yes, I'm very selfish

    2. Do you infact have a pretty dark side, which find a lot of people and things shallow, and unlikeable, and you'd like to stick pins in their eyes? But you wouldn't actually do it, because you are pretty nice realllyyy?
    Umm.. well I do find a lot of people unlikeable and I do stick pins in their eyes

    3. Do you feel frustrated towards people that don't care about things that really matter? Do you get frustrated at those that seems to only care about sports, clothes, and their hair?
    It's not as much frustration as it is annoyance that we usually don't have much in common

    4. Do you often feel lonely?
    Mmm.. at college sometimes where I don't have as many close friends

    5. Do you get random ideas in the middle of the night, and you get so exicted thinking about doing it tomorrow, but then tomorrow comes and you're not excited about it anymore, thus don't do it?
    Not really..

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?
    Well, I do think more than a lot of people, I'd say

    7. Do you literally feel other people's pain?
    Nah, I usually only feel that strongly about fictional characters with really tragic life stories

    8. Are you a bit (or a lot) of a music snob?
    Totally, although I'm not quite as bad as I used to be

    9. Have you had people you've never met before tell you their life-story?
    How could they tell me their life story if I've never met them?

    Umm.. I guess at random parties while drunk, except I'm usually the one ranting

    10. Do you think the world would be a bit better with more INFP's?!
    I don't know if the world would be "better," but life and dealing with other people would be a little more enjoyable for me

    1. Do you think you're sometimes more selfish, mean, and less lovey-dovey than what people think us to be?

    Yes.

    2. Do you infact have a pretty dark side, which find a lot of people and things shallow, and unlikeable, and you'd like to stick pins in their eyes? But you wouldn't actually do it, because you are pretty nice realllyyy?

    Yup.

    3. Do you feel frustrated towards people that don't care about things that really matter? Do you get frustrated at those that seems to only care about sports, clothes, and their hair? I used to get really frustrated over people and situations like the above. Now I just sort of ignore it or scoff at it, but I don't let this stuff bother me like it used to.

    4. Do you often feel lonely? More often than is reasonable, yes.

    5. Do you get random ideas in the middle of the night, and you get so exicted thinking about doing it tomorrow, but then tomorrow comes and you're not excited about it anymore, thus don't do it? Sometimes I get random ideas and stay up almost all night accomplishing them. Sometimes I get random ideas and do them later, and sometimes I don't ever get around to doing them. I get lots of random ideas in general, at all times, but they get jotted in notebooks and sit around waiting for me to do something.

    6. Do you consider yourself unique? Unique compared to most of the people around me, but not very grandly unique in the overall scheme of things, considering how many amazingly unique people are in the world.

    7. Do you literally feel other people's pain? Yes, if I let myself. Sometimes I just have to shut that part of me off.

    8. Are you a bit (or a lot) of a music snob? Maybe a little. Not bad.

    9. Have you had people you've never met before tell you their life-story? Yup.

    10. Do you think the world would be a bit better with more INFP's?! To be honest, I'm not really sure! Hehe. I think the world is better with a good variety, though I'm slightly partial to N's in general.

    1. Do you think you're sometimes more selfish, mean, and less lovey-dovey than what people think us to be?

    Yes. So many people think I'm the kindest person ever, and I'm not at all...Maybe I just have really high standards for myself though.

    2. Do you infact have a pretty dark side, which find a lot of people and things shallow, and unlikeable, and you'd like to stick pins in their eyes? But you wouldn't actually do it, because you are pretty nice realllyyy?

    I am not sure I understand this, but I think so.

    3. Do you feel frustrated towards people that don't care about things that really matter? Do you get frustrated at those that seems to only care about sports, clothes, and their hair?

    YES. SO MUCH.

    4. Do you often feel lonely?

    All. The. Time. But I still choose not to hang out with people.

    5. Do you get random ideas in the middle of the night, and you get so excited thinking about doing it tomorrow, but then tomorrow comes and you're not excited about it anymore, thus don't do it?

    Not particularly, although it has happened before.

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?
    I feel...different, but not really unique.

    7. Do you literally feel other people's pain?
    Yes.

    8. Are you a bit (or a lot) of a music snob?
    YES. Although that has gotten better.

    9. Have you had people you've never met before tell you their life-story?
    HOLY SHIT YES.

    10. Do you think the world would be a bit better with more INFP's?!
    HELL NO. No offense, INFPs.

    1. Do you think you're sometimes more selfish, mean, and less lovey-dovey than what people think us to be?

    I can be pretty cold sometimes, but I also have a pretty strong guilt complex. So this question is kind of hard for me to answer, as I may not be coming across as mean as I think I do.

    2. Do you infact have a pretty dark side, which find a lot of people and things shallow, and unlikeable, and you'd like to stick pins in their eyes? But you wouldn't actually do it, because you are pretty nice realllyyy?

    Yes, I definitely have a dark side, which was MUCH darker when I was younger. Space is dark and empty, and a part of me feels the weight of that.

    I've sort of come to accept people as they are, though. What's shallow to me is deep for other people, and what's deep for me is abstractly pointless for others. Also, I learned a long time ago that even people who seem shallow often have some kernel of wisdom worth digging up.

    3. Do you feel frustrated towards people that don't care about things that really matter? Do you get frustrated at those that seems to only care about sports, clothes, and their hair?

    Who am I to determine what REALLY matters?

    Although yes, if someone's character doesn't go beyond sports, clothes, and hair, I will likely not spend much time on them.

    4. Do you often feel lonely?

    No. I do sometimes, though, and when I do the feeling makes up for lost time.

    5. Do you get random ideas in the middle of the night, and you get so exicted thinking about doing it tomorrow, but then tomorrow comes and you're not excited about it anymore, thus don't do it?

    Hahaha. Yeah, I've done that. Funny how certain forms of inspiration have a expiration date, huh?

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?

    Just like everyone else.

    7. Do you literally feel other people's pain?

    Yeah, but always under the mirror of my own experiences. Sometimes that mirror skews things a bit, so I always have to pay attention to make sure we are lining up properly.

    That's part of what makes me so helpful, though. When I mirror their pain correctly, I join them, and we heal each other together. (They rarely recognize that I'm healing the wounded part of myself as I help them, though. That's for the best.)

    8. Are you a bit (or a lot) of a music snob?

    Heh, sort of! At least, if you consider shunning most of what's on the radio as music snobbery.

    9. Have you had people you've never met before tell you their life-story?

    Yup.

    10. Do you think the world would be a bit better with more INFP's?!

    Not necessarily. If we had more healthy INFPs, then definitely. However, an unhealthy INFP can be quite the destructive force.

    1. Do you think you're sometimes more selfish, mean, and less lovey-dovey than what people think us to be?

    Yes. I'm warm/soft on the outside and cold/hard on the inside. I make effort to be a good person and to make others around me as comfortable as possible, but I can be as catty and irritable as anyone, though I usually keep it to myself.

    2. Do you infact have a pretty dark side, which find a lot of people and things shallow, and unlikeable, and you'd like to stick pins in their eyes? But you wouldn't actually do it, because you are pretty nice realllyyy?

    Yes.

    3. Do you feel frustrated towards people that don't care about things that really matter? Do you get frustrated at those that seems to only care about sports, clothes, and their hair?

    Not really. Who the hell lets stuff like that bother them anyway?

    4. Do you often feel lonely?

    Sometimes.

    5. Do you get random ideas in the middle of the night, and you get so exicted thinking about doing it tomorrow, but then tomorrow comes and you're not excited about it anymore, thus don't do it?

    Not as often as I used to.

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?

    In some senses, I think I'm pretty average and mundane. In others, not so much. I think most people are like this, so I guess not especially.

    7. Do you literally feel other people's pain?

    No. It takes effort. I care about people in a detached way and force myself to see things from their perspective.

    8. Are you a bit (or a lot) of a music snob?

    I don't know. Probably not.

    9. Have you had people you've never met before tell you their life-story?

    This happens a lot.

    10. Do you think the world would be a bit better with more INFP's?!

    Not really.

    Ugh. My insides sometimes don't seem very INFP-y. I guess this is an off night, but I answered honestly.

    1. Do you think you're sometimes more selfish, mean, and less lovey-dovey than what people think us to be?

    Yeah. I have high standards for niceness though, I think. I'll do something I think is "mean", and I'll feel really guilty about it. If I tell one of my friends about it, they look at me like this: , and tell me it's not bad at all. Plus, I think that people have this selfless/super nice image of me in their head, so even when I try to be mean, they don't take it seriously.

    2. Do you infact have a pretty dark side, which find a lot of people and things shallow, and unlikeable, and you'd like to stick pins in their eyes? But you wouldn't actually do it, because you are pretty nice realllyyy?

    Used to. Now I'm usually pretty cool with almost everyone. If I'm not cool with someone, I realize that maybe 75% of the time it's my problem, and not theirs. So I work through that. If it really is their problem, I just try to stay away from them.

    3. Do you feel frustrated towards people that don't care about things that really matter? Do you get frustrated at those that seems to only care about sports, clothes, and their hair?

    Sometimes. But then I remember that the stuff I care about doesn't necessarily matter, either. It's just valuing different things...

    4. Do you often feel lonely?

    Yeah, a lot. I want to be around people, but they scare the crap out of me. It's really frustrating. Plus, most people don't "get" me. I try to get on their wavelength, but I'm not successful sometimes.

    5. Do you get random ideas in the middle of the night, and you get so exicted thinking about doing it tomorrow, but then tomorrow comes and you're not excited about it anymore, thus don't do it?

    Sadly, yes. My random bursts of mental/physical energy don't come around very often, and they don't stay around for long. It's hard being indifferent to pretty much everything. I wish I wasn't so passive.

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?

    Yeah, but I didn't really consider it until people kept telling me I was. I think I have a complex now.

    7. Do you literally feel other people's pain?

    No. I can feel bad for people, but I don't feel their pain as if it were my own. So: sympathy, yes; empathy, no.

    8. Are you a bit (or a lot) of a music snob?

    HAHAHAHA No. The stuff I listen to isn't cool. And I've been around enough obnoxious music snobs that I vowed never to become one. It's okay if you listen to good music, but it's not okay if you try to make other people feel inferior.

    9. Have you had people you've never met before tell you their life-story?

    Yes, people I've never met, people I don't know very well, people who never really talk to me but then suddenly spill their guts to me. It doesn't bother me, but sometimes I feel bad because I don't know what to say or do...I mean, I've had people tell me all about how their parents beat them (while it was still going on). It's made me consider being a counselor, so I can at least get paid for it. ha I really do like listening to people, though.

    10. Do you think the world would be a bit better with more INFP's?!

    Hard to tell. We can be pretty good catalysts, though.

    1. Do you think you're sometimes more selfish, mean, and less lovey-dovey than what people think us to be?

    Yes. Feeling things intensely is probably a part of it. Selfishness in healthy doses is used as a self-preservation technique.
    I think I look cold on the outside if you`re not in my inner circle or you don`t accidentally catch me smiling to myself or being nice. Like picking up that spider most girls screamed at or wanted to step on and taking it outside.

    2. Do you infact have a pretty dark side, which find a lot of people and things shallow, and unlikeable, and you'd like to stick pins in their eyes? But you wouldn't actually do it, because you are pretty nice realllyyy?

    Pins aren`t really my thing. The dark side, well...You know, like in movies/cartoons when there is a good hearted naive hero type character, and the dark genious villain type; well I always found the dark genious to be more interesting. In real life I try not to be too judgemental and give them the benefit of the doubt. In a fit of anger I`d probably be the one walking away from the situation, not the one going for the punch.

    3. Do you feel frustrated towards people that don't care about things that really matter? Do you get frustrated at those that seems to only care about sports, clothes, and their hair?

    Yes, but at the end of the day you`ll find out that leaves you empty handed.

    4. Do you often feel lonely?

    I think I used to more in HS. I also cried more often. I think I`ve learned to come to terms with my personality and be alone without feeling lonely. It`s far worse being with someone and still feeling lonely.

    5. Do you get random ideas in the middle of the night, and you get so exicted thinking about doing it tomorrow, but then tomorrow comes and you're not excited about it anymore, thus don't do it?

    Yeah, my motivation spurs come at odd times. It`s the same when creativity hits, you can`t force it. But I should really work on the procrastination part.

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?

    There`s a good quote about that; Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else Alison Boulter

    7. Do you literally feel other people's pain?

    Unless I`m detached from the situation. But I don`t really know if I really feel their pain, or just what/how I think I`d feel if I were in their situation and then feel it.

    8. Are you a bit (or a lot) of a music snob?

    I like different genres, but I keep away from most of what`s on the charts. I listen to music, because it makes me feel one way or another (without the help of drugs), so I don`t really get what you could feel from most of what`s considered popular. It doesn`t do a thing for me. If that makes me a music snob, I don`t really care, to each their own.

    9. Have you had people you've never met before tell you their life-story?

    More like crying on my shoulder and spilling their guts out. Mostly at parties, where lots of people who aren`t usually close come together.
    While I was working as a secretary in the Summer a client of my boss was really chit chatty, started telling me about his horoscope, general astrology and his numerology number and continued to explain mine to me. Funny guy.

    10. Do you think the world would be a bit better with more INFP's?!

    Probably not. I can`t help but imagine a society ruled by INFP`s as fluffy rainbow coloured chaos jk jk!
    It would be better if people generally started to care more.

    1. Do you think you're sometimes more selfish, mean, and less lovey-dovey than what people think us to be?
    Sometimes?

    2. Do you infact have a pretty dark side, which find a lot of people and things shallow, and unlikeable, and you'd like to stick pins in their eyes? But you wouldn't actually do it, because you are pretty nice realllyyy?
    I used to want to do more than put pins in their eyes, now I'm happy to just not deal with them.

    3. Do you feel frustrated towards people that don't care about things that really matter? Do you get frustrated at those that seems to only care about sports, clothes, and their hair?
    What matters is subjective, though I sometimes envy those who can get along with "simpler" things.

    4. Do you often feel lonely?
    More often than I like, but less often than I used to.

    5. Do you get random ideas in the middle of the night, and you get so exicted thinking about doing it tomorrow, but then tomorrow comes and you're not excited about it anymore, thus don't do it?
    More often than I like, but less often than I used to.

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?
    No, each snowflake is still made of the same water ice.

    7. Do you literally feel other people's pain?
    I try not to unless it's fictional; hurts less that way.

    8. Are you a bit (or a lot) of a music snob?
    More than I like, but less than the loud minority.

    9. Have you had people you've never met before tell you their life-story?
    A few times...

    10. Do you think the world would be a bit better with more INFP's?!
    Hell fuck no!
