Why do "people" hate the idea of being INFP? Because most of us aren't.
Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere
Hm. I wouldn't be happy being an INFP. What they tend to prioritize and want, I don't. Under really really shitty conditions (like, your biological father committing suicide while you have a cancer scare, all in high school), I fall in the grips of Fi. It aint pretty. Can't imagine living like that 24/7 as a default.
I admire INFPs for putting up with themselves, but it must be a tough type to be.
Well, if you are Te-dom, then no doubt Fi appears that way, or you experience it that way. Your Fi is shitty Fi, just like my Te is shitty Te. We tend to project that onto each other (not literally you & me; our respective types).
Fi to me feels mostly reasonable, honing in on what is most important, so as not to get distracted by lesser things. In a crisis, I tend to stay calm & focus on the big things, unless that nasty Te stress mode takes over, then I freak about the little things.
