When the external world is in disagreement with your way, you need to do something about it. You can change the external or internal, or disregard one of them. It seems that for an INFP the easy way is to disregard the external. Ultimately a change is needed, though.

    In a way, I feel this is a suspension of revising internal ideals until more information can come along to contradict the facts which contradict the ideals . It's kind of a refusal to accept the external as the whole picture just yet, optimistically envisioning future developments as revealing your ideals as correct or at least plausible. It's sort of a giving of the benefit of the doubt to your inner world.

    At a certain point of course, you do have to let go, but the tendency is to hang on for as long as possible.

    That's an interesting way to put it. Looking like that it makes more sense how other people might see this sort of attitude weird.

    I'd say that it's that at it's best, but crossing the line into simply disregarding evidence because you don't like it can most definitely be an INFP weakness.

    Would "Appearing weird and creepy" count, or does that fall under "Social Disregard and/or Cluelessness"?

    To me it's not laziness so much as feeling no desire to do something unless I feel it is significant.

    It's similar to how I hate small talk because my Fi+Ne prefers that all conversations have some deep meaning.

    Does any other INFP hate showing up to school, or is at least reluctant to do so? I miss tons of school, and when I'm there I hate it. I once knew an INFP who did the same thing, and I've been wondering if other INFPs do this as well.

    I think it's because school does not jive with my Fi and there's nothing there to stimulate my Ti.
