    Default I always wanted to be famous (infp)

    anybody else relate to that?


    I always wanted fame in some way, .... preferably by being a musician or something like that...anything really... Ive actually went as far as trying to find fame in my own small home-town recently since i dont think my music is ready for the masses, well i havent tried hard enough yet...but i think i could be a really big celebrity if i had the right resources... is this normal for an infp?

    Fame for my creation/invention - yes. Fame for myself - no

    Being in R&D, my 'ambition' is to create the next killer-app that will be used by millions. On the other hand, becoming a celebrity will be too uncomfortable I feel. I already over-analyze what my small circle of friends and acquaintances think of me and my actions. I can't imagine what it'll be like to be a public figure and be constantly under the glare of the media. I'd probably end up like a quivering mass of jelly

    That's a good distinction, William K. I always had dreams and fantasies about fame from the time I was a kid. But the more I learned about myself and the older I got, I realized what I really wanted was to be recognized for a contribution. It would be my worst nightmare to actually be famous. I can't imagine how excruciating it would be to have people prying into my private life, following me around taking my picture, that kind of thing.

    I wouldn't mind being author-famous, though. Famous enough that people know your name, respect you, give you a good table at a restaurant, but not so famous that people care who you're currently dating or who your favorite designer is, blahblahblah.

    I think our society emphasizes fame as a way to be loved and admired. But the truth is, that fame seems to ruin people. You just have to look at the lives of stars to see that they are lonely and desperate and continue to ruin their lives through the bad choices that they make. I'm not saying that it's bad for you to want to be famous. I think a lot of people feel that way. I'm just saying that if you don't become famous, it may not be such a bad thing. There may be other amazing ways for you to contribute your gifts to the world.

    I also have a feeling theres alot of famous infp's in the music industry... Eminem...the biggest selling rap artist...i KNOW he's infp. I have a feeling Tupac and jay-z are closely related to infp's too... infp's are very gifted individuals... i know i am.

    I have always wanted to 'make a mark' on the world in some way, but I never wanted to be a celebrity. I just want to do one great thing.

    Eminem is an ISTP, Tupac was probably ENTP...

    But anyway, I've always viewed "famous for being famous" as a repugnant and shallow thing. People who are famous in such a way usually have some kind of a relation to Reality TV (which I consider a cultural abomination), or made their name recognizable by being fucked on camera. Not that I have any problem with pornography in general - I just prefer that's left upto to the dedicated professionals.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.
