So I have taken the test multiple times and always come out with INFP, so why am I questioning it? Because I over think things. Also because I was reading about the INFP and INFJ confusion and well, that confused me more. I tried reading some of the threads on here but they get so complex and in depth that I get confused. I'm not the smartest person around and I get very confused with all the fancy terminology and stuff. So I decided to post on here and use one of those question things from the sticky thread.
1-what makes you angry?
Math, video games, technology that doesn't work right. Its takes a lot for a person to make me angry, but it is possible if the right buttons are pushed.
2-what do you like/dislike most about people?
I'm not sure. I try to see the good in people and look at all angles of a persons situation before I judge them. People I don't like though are those who pretend to be someone they are not just to "fit in"
3-do you like animals? why?
Yes. They are just amazing and beautiful.
4-what do you like most about the favorite people in your life?
They are caring and like me for who I am...I hope. I still fear that people judge me badly, even those I'm close to. BUT they like me for who I am, and I'm quite unique. Also they are always there for me.
5-what do you like/dislike most about yourself?
Imagination, for both. I love it because it is so HUGE! My imagination just flows out all the time and helps me come up with amazing stories. I daydream A LOT. It's also a curse though because I tend to imagine certain situations and when they don't turn out the way I imagined I get upset. Example: I may imagine myself with a girl I like, her being nice and kind and wanting to be with me, our first date going great and us going out for a long time (long term relationship) and then the girl doesn't like me and I'm devastated because I almost believed my daydream to be true. It tends to get in the way a lot. Also I don't like how I'm so scared of social interaction.
6-do you care about being fashionable? why/why not?
Not really, I want to impress, but I want to be comfortable mostly.
7-do you prefer to fit in or stand out?
Neither, well fit in I guess. I like being unique and not "going with the flow" but too much attention makes me uncomfortable.
8-what activities do you enjoy?
I'm a mix of outdoorsman and geek. I love nature. Hiking, camping, kayaking, fishing, and so on. I also like video games, scifi and fantasy movies books and tv shows. I like to just hang out with a small group of friends and just have coffee or a few drinks.
9-what makes you feel secure?
Not sure what this is asking. What makes me feel safe? Retreating into my head I guess?? If I become very uncomfortable I will leave the situation mentally, start to day dream of being somewhere else. Escapism I guess, I write a lot of stories about escapism.
10-do you like being in a relationship? why/why not?
Yes, but they scare me. Social interaction scares me because I'm afraid of being judged. if I'm fully comfortable then I do like a relationship...it is very deep for me.
11-what do you love and why? Could be people, things, places, etc...
I love nature...a lot. It's so quiet and peaceful, not to mention beautiful.
12-what do you spend the most time thinking about?
I worry a lot about different things if that counts. I believe I have anxiety issues which might be separate from personality. I day dream a lot too. I aslo think about my values and things I believe strongly in.
13-How much have you changed over the years? Who were you as a child?
I'm a bit more outgoing than i used to be. I was a closed shell as a child. I'm more open now but still very cautious. I understand my myself a little more i guess...besides not knowing who I am That is, but I can recognize certain feelings and how to overcome them. I'm still hyper and goofy at times, yet very relaxed at other times. I feel mature but yet immature at the same time.
Anyway I guess I just want human input on my type, just to make sure it is INFP. Hope you can figure it out. Thanks.
