    My sister has tested INFP, but her Sensing and Extroversion are stronger than mine. I'm borderline INFJ-INFP with strong Introversion and iNtuition, but weaker on the last two. My mother is probably an INFP as well. My SO is pretty sure I'm an INFP at this point and his sister has tested as one.

    I never made close childhood friends. It wasn't until I had college roommates that i was able to establish friendships. I tended to admire people from a distance and always had an intense and unfulfilled crush that would last for years even at age nine. During my loneliest time as a teenager at a boarding school, I would make up imaginary scenarios all the time on social outings. I would also wander off into nature any chance I found and would invent a paradise for myself. A rusted bridge over a muddy river wasn't a dilapidated scene, but the softness of the brown water and the sparkles of the sunlight on it were part of the magic for me. The bridge had years of stories to tell about people who had crossed over it with every imaginable experience. Being around people was typically a source of pain and loneliness for me because I couldn't connect no matter how hard I tried, but being alone was the fulfillment of my every fantasy.

    I think from about age ten to about thirty I was "addicted to pining." There was something appealing to me about a sense of longing for a nebulous something that was lacking in my life.

    In retrospect I think it was ME!

    I was big time into pining from age 13 to 16, it was a high art for me, religious ecstacy lol. (The crushes that Toonia mentions) Then real life slapped me in the face and not much time or energy for pining then. I remember those highs with wistfulness though.

    Other than the portions in bold, I can relate to everything else you said here. I knew there was a reason that I thought that INFP was a viable type for myself at one point.

    I'm kinda silly....there are things I won't talk about in my past...probably because I'm still angry, angry. Whilst I'm definitely sensitive, I'm not that sensitive...Fluffy, fuzzy, cuddly can annoy me, I'm kinda dark, bitter and twisted actually, I'm not much of a peace maker, rather a peace desirer, and I will fight to get it.
    Ah....can't think of anything else. You guys, will see soon enough what I'm like, anyway, I'm sure you guys have figured out opinionated!
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    Totally Agree. I am the peace desirer and will fight tooth and nail to get there.

    The "fluffy, fuzzy, cuddly" thing depends.
    I like when it comes from a place of meaning not extravagance or frivolousness, y'know?

    personaly i disliked infpgc. everyone was very hostile towards newcomers.
    anywho, differences between infp's.
    well i discovered 3 of my very close friends and i were all infp's. oddly enough i could never have dreamed we all had the same personality type. when i thought about it, they all shared similar characteristics, but could have never told simply by their looks or way of interacting with others.
    defiantly not a very 'by the book' type. my psychology teacher tried to guess out types and was completely wrong on all of us.
    strange.
