    I tend to. Though I know it's ridiculous in the end (through a rational viewpoint), me being cynical or misanthropic is just me being caught up in my emotions and feeling mistreated. I say and feel a lot of things I don't mean. Too much perhaps.

    That is exactly the line by him I was thinking of, he just had an oozing aura of a being a disappointed idealist.

    Yes I am what one would describe as cynical and definitely without a doubt sarcastic. I could do without the cynicism, but I love my sarcasm.

    Can you please tell me why George Carlin would be typed as an INFP? I'm really curious. I'm not trying to badger you or anything. He's commonly typed as ENTP. My Ne kicks in whenever someone says something that doesn't fit the norm.

    Feel free to share your own experiences here on this, do you as an INFP experience a disturbing amount of cynicism in your life - either from within yourself, or other people in their views on you?
    Please give reasons as to the whys, what and hows. I'm curious to see how people deal with this if it is present within your life and how it manifests itself in your day to day living especially in regards to interpersonal relationships.

    Looking forward to see your replies, any input would be nice especially perspectives from types other than the INFP type and how they see them.

    Sorry if there is an old thread covering this, I am new here still and didn't want to revive any old ones.
