Before I read (most) of this thread, I was convinced I was an INTP. That's the result I always get from personality tests, that's what my family and friends think I am, but someone on this site suggested I might be an INFP. And I relate more wholeheartedly to the stuff shared on this thread than I ever have to the discussions amongst INTPs. It's really true, I'm an INFP, and I am disgusted by myself.
I hate how sensitive I am to criticism. I hate how I take everything personally. I hate how easily I cry. I hate how I make decision based on emotions. I hate how I can't let things go. I hate how focused I am on myself. I hate all this self-pity. I want to step outside my body grab myself by the shoulders and yell "Grow a backbone! Get over it already!" (even though I would totally make myself cry). I want to see things clearly and all these emotions are in the way. I don't trust them, but I base everything on them. Consequently I can't trust a single decision I make, because I'm never objective.

I think you start taking things less personally with experience.
The more often you encounter issues or problems, the less painful it becomes. And the more you share with people around you, the more you understand how common issues are. I used to take everything to heart. Now, much, much less so. My feelings have callouses.
