    Default INFP's, what do you think of your personality?

    This is inspired by TheBeatGoesOn's post about ISTJ's.

    INFP's (hell, NF's in general, but specify your type), what do you think of your personality, what do you like and dislike about yourself/your general type?

    My power, my pleasure, my pain. I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Complex, abstract, emotional pain is not easy to resolve, and that can often be the world of the iNtuitive Feeler. Such pain is not subject to the external measurement of logic or anything concrete and observable. It is internalized perceptions of the external world and its meaning. When it is distorted by a subjective lens it can burn the soul. Becoming trapped by it is like fighting an assailant you cannot see.

    I hate how every little problem stands in line to speak to the almighty wizard of my heart.

    What I like about being an NF are those moments of clarity when I have achieved enough empathy to be able to draw correct conclusions and actually see the world from a fresh perspective. Also, when understanding comes together on multiple levels in a creative expression that really works. Even though there is some logic involved in that process, it is that intangible quality of communicating a piece of human experience that cannot be completely analyzed or defined.

    You took the words right out of me. Anyway, annoying bit about my personality is that I procrastinate and is indecisive(Relates to my P element). This is so because most of the time i want to make sure that people around me who are affected by my decision feels comfortable as well. So usually i let them decide for me how they want things to go and I'd be comfortable with it most of the time.

    What do I think of being INFP? I've often wished I was more outgoing, more practical, more logical, and more decisive.

    I'm learning to make peace with who I am.

    Summarized... I love it.

    Though I don't always particularly love the "can be overwhelmed by unpleasant feelings" thing.

    That's how i feel. Added to that, being able to draw correct conclusions about why the people around me are unhappy or distressed, so that i could be there for them.
