Thread: INFP changing types?

  1. #11


    I'm a social INFP which means I like meeting and talking to new people but I'm tired afterward unlike extroverts who gain energy from being around people. I talk with people easily not because I've suddenly become extroverted, but I've learned conversation skills, patterning, etc. They're just skills like bicycling or chess.

    However, I do take on the behaviors of other types depending which Role I'm in. Everyone has a single Identity, but we have multiple Roles like father, son, sibling, employee, husband, writer, artist, etc.

    As an employee, I exhibit INTJ behavior. When I'm by myself, I'm an INFP. When I'm with clients, I go into ENFP mode. I take on whichever behavior will make me most successful in that Role.

    One of my close INFP friends definitely comes across as an extrovert to me, and I usually surprise her that I'm an introvert because I'm kind of outgoing with her, but it's because the two of us click well and share common values, so I tend to let my hair down. It's something I really enjoy about interacting with INFPs in real life, I get this soothing gentle vibe from them, but at the same time, they teach me how to have fun.
