    Default Solitude, principles, values-"these are a few of my INFP things."

    I'm new here and I'm an INFP. I discovered this less than 24 hours ago and the system has so far allowed some introspection into who I am and some of the 'things' I need to work on for personal improvement. I instinctively know what's good for me but it's affirming to see it listed so succinctly on at several web-sites dealing with the subject.
    I hope this site will be a worthwhile source of information and exchange of ideas-realizing, of course, that I'll likely not receive any benefit if I don't contribute and offer a little of myself to the discussions.
    Kindest regards to All.
    In addition-I'm a father of a large family composed of young children and teenagers. I'm self-employed in a business that appears to be typically INFP inspired and provides plenty of opportunity to work by myself, alone, for hours on end--and really enjoying the solitude. I appreciate and enjoy working with others but I'd not enjoy it for extended periods.
    Why do I have lots of children? Upholding my principles and values.
    Does this sound like a typical INFP?

    Welcome Don - how many children do you have?

    I don't wish to be identified by giving the exact number. I have to be vague.
    I have between 6 and 8 legitimate children.......I have no illegitimate children.
    They were all born within a 9 year period. No twins or multiple births, either.

    hi don
    Weathergirl: District 38 is sunny. Slight rock showers this morning. Chance of rock showers into the afternoon—20 percent. District 39 is cloudy. Chance of rock showers this afternoon—10 percent.
    Edward: Bebop here here! Alright woo hoo!
    Weathergirl: Chance of rock showers today upgraded to 90 percent.
    Edward: Really.

    Welcome Don,

    Running your own business and raising children must be so difficult!
    I'm really impressed, even though I don't know the specifics.
    However, to answer, your question, I think an INFP operating smoothly in the business world is somewhat a typical,
    but your preference solitude seems like a commonly shared quality among INFPs.

    Are you interested in using knowledge of your MBTI type in order to facilitate work and family life, or just for personal enrichment, or both?
