    Default How to navigate an SJ world as an INFP




    I really liked how he points out the not so obvious (to the INFP) "you have to understand WHY the world is the way it is before you can enact the change you'd like to see." He then goes on to explain how to speak SJ and be effective. He's quite insightful.

    1) What IS
    2) Why something IS
    3) How to who make the SJ case. "You've got to able to show them in practical, rational and logical terms why it is. You can't just come to them with 'I have a hunch' You have to be able to back up your hunch with some type empirical or least tangible and measurable data."

    In other words, prove it. One could have the absolute best idea ever about X, but it's just a thought if you can't prove it.

    The summary sounds more Te than SJ. I doubt that would work with an SFJ. Different priorities.
    “[Capitalism] as it exists today is, in my opinion, the real source of evils. I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals.”
    ― Albert Einstein, Why Socialism?

    “The evils of capitalism are as real as the evils of militarism and evils of racism.”
    ― Martin Luther King Jr.

    So many of those comments are cringey as hell.

    I don't feel that the video is meant for folks like me. I'm not on a mission to change the world.

    He's absolutely right though on a non personal basis. I've worked with many an SFJ and in the work world that is what works. He is essentially describing how to frame things in an Si way, albeit with a Te bias.

    Perhaps it's a 'drive' thing. Many INFP's are enneagram 4 and I note that you are a 5 and an Sp dominant.

    P.S. Cool avatar btw. What brand are you smoking?

    I’m definitely not crusading for a better world. Call me a pessimist but I don’t see it as changeable. I’ve just tried my best to navigate it and not become overwhelmed by anger and despair that lots of people whether through nature or nurture or both are rotten SOBs.

    As per orders of the No likes experiment I am not liking posts for the duration.

    I'm not sure. I do have ambitions, but they have more to do with my visions and goals.

    The guy says to try to understand why things are the way they are. I'm naturally inclined to do that. I'd say it's good advice for young INFPs who tend to be naïve. Personally, I like to hope for the best and expect the worst. It would be a disservice to actual realists to say I'm a realist, but I do like to keep things in perspective.

    I like the idea of encouraging positive changes but on a small scale. (Not all day, everyday, mind you. Just on occasion.) What's described in the video made me think of something more broad and outward.

    Only Mr. Bunny knows. I think he should've gone with whatever this is:

    I'd like this but I just remembered I signed up for @Merced's no likes experiment. So it's forcing me to be less lazy and actually think of a response.

    I think in general that N types, especially the INxPs, could benefit from learning to speak the language of sensors to better navigate this world.

    The world is HUGE, if you cant find spots that are not SJ you need to look where you have yet to look. Find keys that provide good probability that the situation works for you.
