    I'm sorry but I mostly hate being an INFP. I am continually frustrated by not fitting in to my type or my career. Bah humbug.

    I always test as INFP but really do not feel like I fit into the description. I'm not a counselling type, I don't want to help people. I am pretty artsy though.

    On the enneagram I test as a 5W4 so I sometimes think I'm more T than F.


    My partner however is an INFP guy who is very at home in his skin. He's a counsellor. Loves it.

    My Likes:

    1. Everyone loves me
    2. I really can uderstand where you are coming from
    3. I can tell if I am going to like you or not in the first 30 seconds
    4. I can see how something is going to unfold before it happens
    5. I get along with everyone.


    My Dislikes:

    1. I over complacate every thing
    2. I cant make decisions, no matter how small
    3. I feel like I have to make everyone feel good and happy
    4. I dont like talking to people because I am afraid that we will have a conflict
    5. I am afraid that my boyfriend will be the only one who understands me



    All in all most of the things I like/dislike can swap due to the situation I am in. when I was alone I felt that I was broken, a puppet with out strings, but that changed when I met my significant other.

    I hate that the things that I'm good at, and my strengths, don't really seem to be useful. I'm graduating in July and I'm worried that the real world will squash me like a bug. I also hate that this same quality makes me feel like I need to rely on other people to make up for it. I like being the helper, but I don't like to be helped.

    Actually, on a related note, I seem to work really well in the 2nd-in-command/advisor/catalyst position. At least as far as family/friend relations go. So, um, how do I translate that into the rest of my life?

    I really dislike my introversion at times. People who get to know me like me (well, a few probably think I'm weird), but other than that I'm pretty forgettable. My shyness can also be pretty horrendous. I am so effing awkward.

    My N can make it difficult to communicate. I hate that. I like the feeling of understanding and being understood, so it's a difficult place to be in sometimes.

    I'm actually okay with my F (it's pretty borderline anyway, and nobody's ever called me illogical) and my P. I can actually organize really well. The only time it gets me is the whole procrastination/indecisiveness thing. Which can suck. But at the same time, I'm extremely flexible, and that's served me very well in the past.

    I guess, overall, I'm okay with being an INFP. I have to be. I think all I have to do is figure out how to take the most advantage my INFPness, and then it'll be just peachy.

    I feel like I can't comment on INFPs in general, since we're all different. And I don't really know enough of them in real life. I'd just be speculating then.

    I like my insight and I dislike being lonely.

    I can relate to these.

    My list is...

    Likes: creativity, imagination, artistic talent, book smarts, eye for aesthetics, some writing talent, ability to take a compassionate angle but never condoning wrong, giving people the benefit of the doubt, being a good listener & a shoulder to cry on, being patient in teaching people, generally easy-going, having passionate feeling, devoted/loyal to those I care about, not afraid to be "different", tendency to champion the underdog, open to new people & new ideas but firm in my core beliefs, strong integrity and moral courage, easily grasping the theoretical/conceptual/abstract, motivated by noble ideals - not money/power, hopeful & trying to see the bright side.

    My ability to empathize and find creative/insightful solutions really surprises me also - I don't have to experience something to understand it on some level. I never saw myself as being helpful or caring until I saw myself in the INFP profiles and understood what it means to "heal".

    Dislikes: often seem cool/aloof/disinterested, very timid/shy, socially awkward, feeling/being tongue-tied, general passivity (things happen to me, I don't often make them happen), temperamental & high-strung, sometimes a know-it-all, sometimes hold an elitist attitude, sometimes excuse my flaws for making me "unique", critical/perfectionist - nothing lives up to my ideals, can appear inconsistent in how I "react" which makes people walk on eggshells, not nurturing or displaying of warmth in the typical ways, too intense/dark/deep - which makes everyday conversation rough at times, too detached from the moment, unaccepting of reality - may "over-fantasize", terrible about "keeping in touch" with people, extremely self-critical, prone to melancholy & self-isolation, selfish, negative/complaining, and very self-absorbed.

    I totally relate to this also. I even feel like my good qualities make me unlikable. My mom told me once, "There are many good things about you; you're smart, pretty and talented", and I thought, those are reasons people hate you . Not to mention my smarts are of the bookish and non-practical variety (meaning I fail at business), my creative talent is also hard to translate commercially, and any of my prettiness is definitely of the "offbeat" variety.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Honestly, I'm tired of it!
