    Question INFP ONLY: Crying

    Poll coming. The poll is private.

    I always see people linking INFP with being easy and frequent criers.

    Is this true INFPs?

    Edit: Crying for the purposes of this poll means actual tears rolling out the eyes.

    Feeling choked up or "misty eyed" does not count.

    Where's the option for I spend too much time trying not to cry?

    Edit: or I wear sunglasses at night just in case

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    OMG, I LOVE the option for crying at toilet paper commercials involving puppies [note, I did not vote for that one, but apparently someone else did]

    I can get misty eyed when someone who has struggled experiences sudden triumph (like say, the movie Rudy), but I very rarely cry, even at times when I wish I could.

    I tend to think this is the most common response for INFPs but very curious to see what a blind poll turns up.

    It takes a great deal of sadness or betrayal to make me cry (not even putting my 17 year old cat, whom I loved dearly, to sleep was enough)... but I find I don't have such walls built up against a surge of positive emotion. Movies like Rudy force me to open my eyes really wide so any potential tears evaporate before anyone can notice.

    For some reason Rodeo themed songs make me get all choked up. I don't even begin to know where that comes from! Also the song El Paso.

    When other people (or some animals) are denied little selfish pleasures for some reason this chokes me up, something about life being so tough and what they are asking for is so little.

    Displays of loyalty and love and the positive like Udog says.

    But I have only cried around two people in my life, my mother and my husband. It is very, very hard for me to actually cry.

    Yeah, it depends on what you mean by crying. I don't bawl out but can get misty-eyed easily.

    People should answer the poll after reading the story about how the Canada figure skater, Joannie Rochette got bronze in the recent Winter Olympics and see if they have any reaction
