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

    I think any NF type has the potential to be cold and selfish at some point in their lifetime. We may care a lot, but we do keep tabs. As an INFP, I actually give off a very reserved air, but my friends know I am quite gooey on the inside, but that does take a while. As I have gotten older and understood other people's personalities and been in my own emotionally messy situations, I have developed very little faith in other people, which means that I know now that I should do what I need to to protect myself. Eventually, NFs learn to do that and it is very important.

    2. Do you in fact 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 do indeed have a dark side. NFs are not un-prone to evil thoughts, especially if we believed intensely about our values and principals. Anyone who irritates us and acts exceedingly stupid are recipients to dark looks and evil thoughts.

    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 care about clothes and hair, but that's not all I care about. Okay, fine, it does really annoy me, but I have been trying lately to do what I can and not get worked up over things I can't change, things that doesn't matter.

    4. Do you often feel lonely?

    Somewhere between mildly lonely to lonely depending on my day and who I have been around.

    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?

    No. I am able to maintain excitement for at least a few weeks, if not a few months.

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?

    I used to. Now, I just deem myself a different person with certain traits and certain weaknesses, much like everyone, although when I am in a good mood, I feel that I am better than the average person.

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

    I used to, a lot. But now I have localized my compassion to those who deserves it, and I am able to push that aside and work on how I may resolve the problem, or just focus on what I can do.

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

    YES.

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

    Yes...

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

    Sure. But it all depends on what INFPs do, just being INFP is not enough to receive praise.

    it flies in the face of my claim to uniqueness, but i'd like to borrow a couple of souffle's answers, because they articulate my own feelings on the issues well. hey, as long as i return them, no?

    Selfish definitely. I'm extremely self absorbed and often think of the world and all the people I know as revolving around me.
    Mean? I can be very judgemental and hateful of people sometimes, which goes against all the the accepting, empathetic values my INFP self is supposed to stand for...
    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?

    As I discussed a bit above, I'm capable of pursuing an intense and biased dislike of someone. Ultimately though I genuinely do not wish to see them suffer, that's when my empathy kicks in. It's just fun to indulge in dislike at a shallow fantasy level, though.

    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?

    Frustrated? Definitely not. It gives me an excuse to feel elite, superior in my level of emotional/intellectual depth to others. And I like feeling that way.
    4. Do you often feel lonely?

    no, lonely isn't the right word. i'm constantly looking to connect "more" and "better" with people, but i consider myself very lucky to have found a few people i really click with, and am flattered (mostly puzzled) that i seem to have a lot of people who want to get to know me and spend time with me.

    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 limited to night time! and i'm more likely to neglect/forget to act on things than i am to totally lose interest. i'm not a world-class go-getter, for sure, but i've been working on putting my plans into action.

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?

    yes, pretty unique among people that i have met (who are in their own ways unique).

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

    yes, sometimes. this might be presumptuous to say, though.

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

    i don't look down on those with differing or little interest in music, but i'm a bit of a record collector and music is very important to me. i have a pretty strong sense of my personal taste, which crosses many genres. snob? i'd say not. nerd? completely!

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

    yes, this has happened to me a lot. i'm not totally sure why. in some cases, the conversation might have seemed natural, but in others i'm not aware of giving the person any reason to open up so fast..

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

    not necessarily. all types (people, really) are necessary.

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

    I can be a bit harsh and off with people without intending to be, plus I'm not shy about expressing my opinions in front of close friends and family.

    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?

    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?

    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?

    Lol, not in the middle of the night, but yes I come up with random ideas which fade away pretty quickly.

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?

    Pretty much, yes.

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

    1. Do you think you're sometimes more selfish, mean, and less lovey-dovey than what people think us to be?
    Yes...sometimes I feel guilty for hiding it.
    I'm also pretty cynical, but I don't think its necessary to display it to others and bring down their mood.

    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 have a dark side, and sometimes an ugly side (which is what the question describes). I hate it though...

    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?
    No, I only feel frustrated at people who care so much about gossiping and obsessed with comparing social lives.

    4. Do you often feel lonely?
    I used to feel lonely more often, now it's getting better. Still there though, mild to moderate..

    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?
    Yep

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?
    I would like to (I think everyone would?)

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

    8. Are you a bit (or a lot) of a music snob?
    No.

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


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

    1. Do you think you're sometimes more selfish, mean, and less lovey-dovey than what people think us to be?
    Definitely. Selfish as in I pay so much attention to my wants that I would sometimes disregard what I need to do, thus I have a bit of problem when it comes to long term commitments.

    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 can get really annoyed when someone makes a metaphor and people just take it seriously. EXAMPLE: A while ago in the news a French father comforts his son by telling him that while ISIS may have guns, France has flowers. About half the people were criticizing the father for 'not telling the son the truth' and that 'flowers are useless'. Of course flowers won't physically save you against a bullet. It wasn't meant to be taken literally!

    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 feel that as long as they have a limit and don't go over the top, I don't really get frustrated. To be honest I like hanging out with people like that. It really takes my mind off my troubles. Sometimes I can care about irrelevant stuff as well.

    4. Do you often feel lonely?
    About three quarters of the 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?
    Usually I get the idea in the night, get up nice and early the next morning, start the project, do it enthusiastically for three days, then the enthusiasm drains away and I ditch the project.

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?
    Everyone is unique in some way. But sometimes, when it's on things most people share the same view on, I hope to have something creative, unique, and different.

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

    Definitely. Whenever my friends have emotional troubles they always come to me cos they know that I would take the problem seriously as if it was my own.

    8. Are you a bit (or a lot) of a music snob?
    I'm a huge classical music snob

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

    On the internet.

    10. Do you think the world would be a bit better with more INFP's?!
    Sometimes yes, sometimes no. The world would definitely be a lot more peaceful with more INFPs, but I want to be unique! (argh I'm so selfish)

    Not sure if OP is still around, but this looks like fun. The directive to be honest makes me want to lie. I probably won't, though.


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

    Sometimes? Try always. And the people around me know it, too. I wouldn't say I'm mean...more like critical and at times dismissive.


    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 have a darker side, but it's not inspired by viewing things and people as shallow and unlikable. That's just how a lot of things are, so it doesn't bother me. In fact, I see myself as shallow and unlikable quite often. Disliking others for it would be hypocritical. (Not that I'm against being a hypocrite. I simply prefer my own hypocrisy be more interesting than that.)


    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?

    No. I get frustrated if they bring those things up to me or try to get me involved in them, but I don't care that they like those things. Granted, I may make snide comments, but I hardly expect them to like different interests just because I have a strong opinion about their current ones. Sometimes, I inadvertently influence someone, sapping their enthusiasm by denigrating what they like. When I realize I'm doing it, I'll back off and say something trite about how lovely it is that we're all so different and we have unique tastes and perspectives, etc.


    4. Do you often feel lonely?

    I think so. It's that or boredom. Hard to know which.


    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?

    No. A phrase will pop into my head or an idea for a short story will come to me. I write it down. I go to sleep.

    It's been a long time since I've been excited about doing something. (Unless anxiety counts, then I get "excited" about things I'm supposed to do tomorrow, and stay up until 4am trying not to think about it.) Usually, I get excited about ideas and new things I've learned or seen.


    6. Do you consider yourself unique?

    Yes. No. I usually have the wrong idea. Like, I'll see myself as a strange pariah who doesn't know how to human, then I'll get information that proves it's not true. Lots of people feel insecure about this or that. Lots of people feel like outsiders. It's nothing special. But there are times when I'm being very ordinary, the most average person ever, and someone comes along to comment on how weird I am. Basically, I overestimate how normal or unusual my thinking is.


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

    NO. I can't tell what other people are feeling, much less feel it. It would be presumptuous to think I could. I can imagine a great many things—and emotions arise from those imaginings—but that's nowhere near the same as experiencing those things or living from that person's perspective. It's just too complex to get a real feel for it.


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

    I used to be. I've mellowed out about it. Still, if someone plays popular country music, I can't help but mock the lyrics. Seriously, put some effort into it, you lazy Nashville bastards.

    I'm glad if someone has music they love. It's better than the people who don't like music or the people who say they like all music.

    Okay, I guess I'm still a snob.


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

    Yeah. I think some people just like to do that, regardless of their audience.


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

    Not really.

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

    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 have a dark side. No, I don't want to stick pins in people's eyes just because they're shallow.

    3. Do you feel frustrated towards people that don't care about things that really matter?
    Yes.

    Do you get frustrated at those that seems to only care about sports, clothes, and their hair?
    No, I like these people. They're charming and I like hanging out with them because it distracts me from my life.

    4. Do you often feel lonely?
    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?
    Not really. This seems really specific.

    6. Do you consider yourself unique?
    I'm undecided.

    7. Do you literally feel other people's pain?
    Literally? No. That's not possible.

    8. Are you a bit (or a lot) of a music snob?
    No. I like all music.

    9. Have you had people you've never met before tell you their life-story?
    Yes, this happens all the time, though to be honest I do lightly encourage it. Still, it happens a lot. I don't mind though.

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