    Haha, no, I'm definitely like this too. I sometimes think to myself, "Maybe something will happen today that will change my life." (And then I think, "Well, can a life-changing experience really happen if I'm ready for it?" hahaha)

    I think part of it is from boredom. Part of it is because I know that there will be things like that, sometime, and I'm a little overly excited about them.

    I'm more or less none drama_esque. I could try but that would expedited considerable effort and energy on my part of processing power I simply refuse to tolerate.

    Its those logical drama sorts you got to keep an eye out for.

    I've been called a drama queen a handful of times. To me it's just I have lots of deep emotions, and am more personally touched by things than a lot of others. But I've seen it in other INFP's, where I've thought, "well, that's happend to pretty much everyone" when they are talking like it's a major, major life event. So I can see how it might come across sometimes. To them it may well be a major life event, and feelings can't be wrong, feelings are feelings. But I can see where people could get us being dramatic about things that have happend to us.

    And apparently crying over things that happen in soaps, and Disney movies is being overdramatic. lol

    I guess I am dramatic at times, but nobody else know about it because I keep it in. Expressing it is too much work...and most of the time, I know how irrational it is, so I just wait until it blows over. Well, and most of the "dramatic" things in my life have to do with my anxieties, I suppose.

    I usually get really annoyed with people who are outwardly dramatic. Control yo-selves!
    Yeah, I often downplay emotion externally. My ESFP sister is the resident drama queen in our house, and I'm happy to let her have that role.

    I think this is idealism. I always fantasize about things turning out amazing or being some significant event in my life - and then I am inevitably disappointed. It's not that I want drama, but I just get tired of the mundane and predictable. Of course, all anyone else sees is me criticizing things or coming off unimpressed.

    The last boyfriend said I prefer to live my life in a constant state of crisis so....yes. When it comes to practical matters I'm very non-dramatic though. If there's an emergency, I get physically hurt, something breaks etc... I'm usually the most level headed person in the room. In all matters concerning my idealism, romance, dreams, etc... I'm usually far too emotionally moved in an instant, although for the most part keep matters tightly under wraps inside.

    ive been accused of such things. haha. i usually react by just not speaking for x amount of time. so its not like over the top dramatic but if im just fed up with something i just stop talking. thats the thing i get called out on most. also i get all apathetic and thats been called out quite a bit. oh well. its better than shouting nonsense.

    Yes. I was about to say, only 4's (of any MBTI type). But then you did. It's really annoying how INFPs are basically thought of as enneagram 4's, when people are talking about INFPs 95% of the time it's just about 4's. Same with INTs and 5, EPs and 7, etc. Sigh.

    I've never been called a drama queen. People have complained that I am too cold or out-to-lunch, spacey or bad attitude but never a drama queen. But yeah, inside I feel life pretty intensely.

    I usually can't deal with people who extert a lot of overdramatic emotion all the time. It overstimulates me, drains me. I feel intensely enough without trying, I don't need to whoop it up.
