    For me it's mostly about people. But there are also places which I don't feel comfortable. Specific, rather than general. There are a couple of shops which I don't patronize anymore because the vibes are uncomfortble to me. Nothing overt. Just the general atmosphere.

    There are also sites in RL which seem to vibrate with negative energy to me.

    I do need a lot of positive behaviors around me to stay at optimum performance and if I don't have enough of that I create it. If I can't succeed in turning negative situations to my comfort I tend to move on.

    It's a matter of staying healthy.

    Yesterday was an all-negative-energy-feeling day for me.



    I was NOT a happy camper. My whole personality shriveled up like a raisin, and I just felt depressed. On days like those, I just try to get to bed as quickly as possible and start over again!

    I don't mind negativity/cynicism- sometimes there are issues that are just *reality,* something that we as humans need to face.

    My motto: Ignorance is NOT bliss.

    If the people around me are pessismistic/are valid in their reasoning, I don't mind.

    However, if people are negative- like overbearingly obnoxious (know-it-alls), yah.. I tend to back away. People like that 'try' to come off rational, when in fact, they're really irrational/always have to try to prove they're smart or always right in some way.. to me, it's just a cover-up. Truly confident/smart people don't always have to try to *prove* themselves to others. They're more humble than that.

    I don't know if I can, Antisocial one, but I can state a belief.

    I think negative energy is harmful to all living things. INFPs are one type which is more aware of its existence and sensitive to it.

    This is as best as I can explain it.

    NF = intuitive feeling = in tune with feelings of ourselves and others
    negative energy = bad mojo for ourselves and others
    we feel that shit.

    To me it look like that many NFs need alot of positive energy to be around them. This works more for ENFs then INFs but INFs are probably better in hidding of this need.

    It looks to me that things that are negative can hurt them a lot from the outside or the inside and thery is always some need to be more positive in life and about life.

    Can anyone relate to this or explain the need?
    NF's are naturally accommodating because they absorb the emotions of others. In order to be perfectly content, therefore, there needs to be no negativity in the immediate environment. As far as positivity about life in general, I do not know about this, I would rather hang out with realistics, rationals, skeptics, in a search for truth of life rather than the glossy version of life.

    Does anyone ever get really "bad, angry, nasty vibes" from someone, to the point where you want to leave, but then your imagination "gives" you a possible reason(maybe an emotional insight or understanding, not that you know exactly what's happening) why that person is feeling/acting the way they are, and then their face changes suddenly and you can see their "inner pain/conflict" and then want to be their best friend?

    I'm not crazy...even though I probably sound nuts.


    Hahahaha!

    Yes.

    If you're nuts, then I'm nuts.

    I guess it would really depend on the person.. Sometimes, when I have really negative co-workers, I tend to turn the situation around, and they become eerily positive, which is OK knowing that I had some effect on them.

    I just accept people for the way they are. If I don't like the vibes I get from them/they're constantly negative, I still keep a friendly face, but keep my distance.
