    i think people who suffer from self doubt and depression can also be paranoid....sort of like...expecting things to go wrong...because isn't that how life always seems to work for me...that mentality...that negative pessimistic slant...being comfortable in that deep dark space...always searching for what will happen next...on the look out for negativity and impending doom....which for the fucking life of me i can't understand why this seems so prevalent in infps....just...that fi filter i guess...measuring everything against the ideal...it's like nothing ever has a chance.

    Also being judgemental.

    ExFPs too.

    I haven't noticed them being paranoid. Just more concerned about what people think about them, that's all. That's not paranoia.

    sometimes, yes.

    actually, I've noticed EXTPs tend to care more than FPs do because of Tertiary Fe

    Behind every cynic lies a bitter dreamer.

    some of us (me for example) just anticipate and prepare for the worst, but hope for the best. If there ever was an optimistic cynic...that would be me.

    ...thou I could be ENFP. It has been brought to my attention so I'm reassessing my functions. I'm sometimes too logical and INFP negativity bothers me.

    haha...I think I do the opposite....I gripe about what is lacking NOW, still hope for the best, don't prepare for much, and then gripe when it goes wrong again. I can't help dreaming of a fabulous future in spite of myself though .

    ENFPs are possibly less "logical", being dominant P types. INFPs prefer rational reasoning, remember.

    ---

    I agree w/ @pinkgraffiti that INFPs are paranoid in the sense that they can be hypersensitive, seeing criticism where none was intended. I think I feel a mix of hurt & anger - mainly a frustration at what I see as being misunderstood. I am not paranoid in that I am not characteristically mistrustful of others, I don't suspect way more is going on below the surface, and I don't expect/prepare for worst case scenarios. I may be slightly naive, finding myself blindsided at times because of it. I usually give the benefit of the doubt for TOO long.

    It's interesting, I made a thread today sort of touching on this. I can be paranoiac at times, mostly due to my mind overacting. That's not to say I don't get angry, I am zero to sixty in a few seconds. No wonder people call me insane.

    You like these old posts I see.

    Paranoia is the realm of the perceiving function and never the judging function at least that's what I understand. It's more common in Ni types but it can occur in Ne types too (if the judging function judges the paranoid possibility created as the most logical/valued or if the Ne user becomes too tired to consciously determine more possibilities than the potentially incorrect limited selection they have available.)

    I can't find any literature online on it, but my professor in college said that most INFP's are very right brained thinkers, and right brained thinkers tend to be more prone to anxiety than left brain thinkers.

    According to Lenore Thomson, both Ti and Fi are right brain functions (Ti & Fi being in the back right area and Se & Ne being in front right.) Fi-doms should be no more prone to anxiety and/or paranoia than their Ti-dom counterparts.

    I think that Fi doms are more paranoid because Ti rationalizes out fears, but Fi isn't really that rational.
