    Default INFP: What'sYour Daily Life Like?

    Being very type-confused, I'm trying to learn more about each type, one at a time, planning to find the one that fits best. Today and tomorrow are for INFP.

    Would anyone like to share details about how your days go, the parts that are most important that you think are because of your being INFP? I'm talking about little things, like whether you eat health food, take a daily walk, read a newspaper or get the news from TV or the internet (or whether you avoid the news).

    Many thanks for any help.

    Edit: If the run-together letters in my title, which I can't find out how to fix, annoy you--even that would be information.

    I live unhealthy; I don't care a lot about eating healthy, although that doesn't mean I eat only fast food or so (I nearly never do), but my eating habits are not very varied. I don't do sports or so and I don't really take a walk to take a walk, however when I go to university and home the distance I have to walk could be nearly called a walk ^^. I don't read a newspaper but I sometimes look some news in the internet, but overall I am just feeling more and more indifferent about what is going on in media.

    So, otherwise, how does my life look like... not very exciting to other people I guess, to me it is kinda ok. When I am not at university I sit at the computer a lot doing this and that, I read sometimes a book, I daydream a lot, my thoughts are always somewhere... since I lack real life friends I don't go hang around with friends.

    Thanks for the answer--it helps. I do most of the things you do, and this fact may push me towards the right direction. It's very hard to find details like this on the internet.

    Wow, thanks for the honesty, although I hope it was a joke. Nah, seems too real.

    Someone famous once said that the majority of men lead lives of quiet desperation.

    I'm just depressed, not desperate. I know several people who are desperate, and I my shadow is different than theirs...they have given up, wait for their pensions, slowly die. I want to live, when I find out a better modus operandi. And I will.

    To quote Simple Plan, here's the depressed version

    "Do you ever feel like breaking down?
    Do you ever feel out of place,
    Like somehow you just don't belong
    And no one understands you?
    Do you ever wanna run away?
    Do you lock yourself in your room
    With the radio on turned up so loud
    That no one hears you're screaming?

    No, you don't know what it's like
    When nothing feels all right
    You don't know what it's like
    To be like me

    To be hurt
    To feel lost
    To be left out in the dark
    To be kicked when you're down
    To feel like you've been pushed around
    To be on the edge of breaking down
    And no one's there to save you
    No, you don't know what it's like
    Welcome to my life

    Do you wanna be somebody else?
    Are you sick of feeling so left out?
    Are you desperate to find something more
    Before your life is over?
    Are you stuck inside a world you hate?
    Are you sick of everyone around?
    With their big fake smiles and stupid lies
    While deep inside you're bleeding

    No, you don't know what it's like
    When nothing feels all right
    You don't know what it's like
    To be like me

    To be hurt
    To feel lost
    To be left out in the dark
    To be kicked when you're down
    To feel like you've been pushed around
    To be on the edge of breaking down
    And no one's there to save you
    No you don't know what it's like
    Welcome to my life

    No one ever lied straight to your face
    And no one ever stabbed you in the back
    You might think I'm happy but I'm not gonna be okay
    Everybody always gave you what you wanted
    You never had to work it was always there
    You don't know what it's like, what it's like

    To be hurt
    To feel lost
    To be left out in the dark
    To be kicked when you're down
    To feel like you've been pushed around
    To be on the edge of breaking down
    And no one's there to save you
    No, you don't know what it's like (What it's like)

    To be hurt
    To feel lost
    To be left out in the dark
    To be kicked when you're down
    To feel like you've been pushed around
    To be on the edge of breaking down
    And no one's there to save you
    No, you don't know what it's like
    Welcome to my life
    Welcome to my life
    Welcome to my life"

    On a more serious note, I don't think INFPs are really that different on the outside from the rest. I work 9 to 5 (ok, it's more 8.30 to 5.30) and is more T-like at work with all the deadlines and stuff.
    I do have some quirks and idiosyncrasies but they're usually in the department of personal choice especially when it relates to what is fashionable and what is not For example, my personal laptop is a bright orange Sony Vaio and I like very colourful shirts (at least relative to my more staid colleagues)


    The other thing is that most of my hobbies tend to be creative but individualistic such as origami, jigsaw puzzles and aircraft models. Most people will find it excruciatingly boring

    Oh, and I'm very picky when it comes to food but at the same time I can eat the same thing every day and have no complaints... Not sure if that's type related though

    Edit : Forgot one other thing. I'm a big believer in old-fashioned good manners and stuff like saying "Thank you" and holding doors open for others, etc. Seems a bit archaic for the modern age though

    Whats my life like now! A few years ago I would give you the atypical lost and depressed answer or the cheerful and bubbly one, then I found the plug that unplugs from the matrix and ha...almost professional exorcist and ghost buster at your service.
