    What can one do for an INFP that seems intent on avoiding a good deal of 'positive energy', and ends up focusing on the negative, more often than not?

    I agree with this wholeheartedly.

    I'm an infj who just kind of withers around masses of negative energy. It's like taking a flower and sticking it under a damp stairwell. I'm better now about leaving situations where there's a lot of negative energy, or leaving to recharge myself often if I can't leave the situation. Sometimes I'll think I have an insight into why they're that way and really really want to help them. But I also perceive that my attempts at help are often seen as judgments.

    Finding it really amusing that the other SF has commented on this exact sentence but care to explain your reasoning?

    I'm sure most people dislike negative energy within themselves, it'd make sense that they'd want a neutral/positive environment around themselves.

    Regarding negative events. The cause might be people or things, but I really don't like chaos within my environment. Therefore mess can drain me as well as people's problems (even if I will try to improve things)

    I thoroughly agree as well! Sometimes it's like a switch goes off, and I go from everyone's shared prespective of, "this sucks," to focusing 100% of my energy to getting everyone excited about almost anything.

    ^^ hmm...me too i think. i can't just be upset about something for very long...if i'm in a group and something has ruined our plans or something i'm likely to figure out a solution or something else we can be excited about.

    i like to change the focus to something positive if i can.

    I can't deal with toxic energy! I had to move myself to a different workstation at work because there are a couple of females in the room that exude negative energy flow. It brings my spirit down. Every time I see them, I get really bad migraines. Even when they don't speak, it's still there.

    ^jumping off of that^

    I know I am pretty in-tune with "energy" as a part of myself and others (...god i'm such a hippie...), but how do other NFs and non-NFs feel about that esoteric concept?
