    Default INFP guy here

    New to this forum, came to commiserate with others who might be my rare personality type.

    There’s so much good about it, but when things are going poorly, one can easily go down a spiral of depression. For me, that means a lot of time on the internet, thus landing here.

    I’m sort of an odd duck, I suppose most INFPs do not find themselves doing engineering for over 20 years, much less doing the same thing for so long. It’s been a bit of a struggle at times, but I do excel at it, if I can stay on task...

    I’m married, have been for 16 years, but it’s not going particularly well.

    Sorry for the somewhat sad intro but that’s kind of where things are at right now, and probably most of the time for that matter.

    Hi Dan.

    I totally get it.

    Hey.

    Some people consider me too gruff to be an INFP. I just figure I’m a bit world-weary after all these years.

    Anyway, welcome.

    Welcome to the forum!

    No need to apologize for a sad intro. I admire the honesty.

    I like your username.

    For any INFPs who are married, I’m curious what your experience has been like. I don’t know my wife’s type for certain but would peg her as ISFJ. What is ironic is that I’m more “organized” than she is, and I’m horrible. She’s practically a hoarder.

    I’m seriously burned out.

    I've seen INFPs suggested as one of the most likely to be dissatisfied. I think it can be a problem with us being so idealistic.

    I blame the Fi-Si loops. I remember all of it.
