    Her voice soothes and intoxicates me at the same time. I sway in the current of her voice. I dance to the rhythm of her words. I loose myself and find myself in her.

    And only when she leaves, I awake. Somehow I am wistful. I can't quite remember except for a long, slow tune played by the wind in the willows.
    Yes, female infp's are very intoxicating...when you can find one!

    Welcome,

    please share your wisdom to us young INFPs!
    Some people tend not to like us.

    Wow, you guys are so incredibly nice. I am really glad I joined this group!

    I wish I had sage advice. Ok, I can share some advice from others that I found to be sage... I recall that I read this is my late twenties, when I was very much not happy, and not optimistic about life or my own ability to find happiness. I found it comforting because it gave me some hope about the future.

    I read that Carl Jung said that extraverts tend to do better before the age of 40, and introverts after. I think the idea was that turning the spotlight on yourself so many years makes you better prepared for later life? I also recall that Jung had a kind of midlife crisis around the age of 40, and eschewed contact with others for a while. A couple years later, he came out of it, and with his own psychological theory, separate from Freud, his mentor. (I believe his typological theories came out of that.) That was Jung growing a spine, and what a spine it was.

    Excellent!

    I have never read it in the career description section of the INFP type descriptions, but it seems like they should say something about INFP's might choose a career in Science and Technology, or even in the corporate world, but if they do, they will approach it differently. I like coding in the corporate world, because I think that I am building something that can be useful to others, and simultaneously, I am creating my own personal art project -- right in the midst of all this hustle and bustle.

    So we all have to wait until we're 40 before the world will make sense?!

    I'm gonna go trade in my F for an extra N.

    I think there are a couple of other programming INFPs at my company (I'm a programmer who works for a software company), but does seem to be a relatively rare combo. PeaceBaby is another programming INFP you may see around here (and of course William K above). There might be some others running about, as well.

    Also, there are a few of us 40-something INFPs about, so no need to feel like too much of an outlier.

    So... welcome!

    Oh, I didn't say it made sense. At least it doesn't makes any sense to me, but eventually, you start to get used to it.

    That sounds about right. And thanks very much.

    This guy is a truly great INFP geek/hacker, Larry Wall, Larry Wall's Home Page I was thrilled when I saw that he had his personality type on his home page. For those of you that don't follow technology, he invented and wrote large parts of the Perl language and the perl interpreter, respectively. Not to mention "patch", from a few years back.

    Yeah, I think it's the application of Science and Technology that's the key. I'm in research, but it's applied research instead of the more fundamental research that you find in the universities.

    I can't imagine anyone not liking any of you. So much affirmation and mutual respect! Please keep it up, and thank you.
