It’s an endlessly running stereotype. When people hear INFPs, we know they straightaway associate our personality as the “saddest” among the 16 Myers-Briggs personality types. We’re pictured as the gloomy, yet gentle, and always crying personality. But how true is this? Now, people ask, “why are INFPs so sad?” Alright. Let us first clear a
INFPs have a lot to offer to the world. Being an idealistic bunch, it seems like they never run out of plans, dreams, and goals. Their ability to see perfection and their pursuit of progress make INFPs heartwarmingly radiant people. However, being humans and introverted feelers, INFP isn’t exempted from feelings of sadness. When they
Being an INFP in a sensing and extroverted world is bittersweet. Have you ever asked yourself why you’re so different? As you watch people progress in life, you start to assess yourself and question your purpose. The once “gifted child” loses their magic, it gets harder to fit in, and the world shuns away your
INFPs are a passionate and creative bunch. Amazingly, this personality type can carry out transformative idealism to the world. But while these free spirits are also known as idea generators, unfortunately, procrastination and sticking with goals are the villains to unleashing their utmost potential. INFP goals may often come as too ambitious, unclear, or ever-changing.
Overthinking is the most tiring and even frustrating part of being an INFP. We overthink finding a solution to circumstances that haven’t happened yet. We overestimate situations and invest emotions – a massive amount – until it hurts our heads or even causes anxiety. As an INFP, I don’t like it. Dang, no one likes
Making friends as an INFP is like holding an audition. Many would approach them. But due to their critical evaluation, they will turn down many, and only choose a selected few. Does this look tedious? It is. Such a critical process is also the reason why INFP may struggle in making friends. To be honest,
INFP relationships may have been one of the longest and most heartwarming relationships you will ever have. It’s no wonder. To INFPs, entering a relationship means accepting you as part of them. Once these reserved INFPs commit to you, they will share with you all – their secrets, thoughts, pain, and dreams. Their openness alone
Aside from being a rare personality, INFPs may probably be the most unique type among the 16 Myers-Briggs personalities. I don’t mean to gloat over INFP’s uniqueness. But INFP’s “different” is somehow an alluring INFP quality for some. They are childlike, yet wise. Compassionate, yet nonconformists. Gentle, yet strong-willed. In this extroverted and kinda insensitive
INFPs are those goofy friends who are likely to smile at everything. They’re light-hearted but ooze with sensitivity in their words and would always treat people with kindness. These peace-revering spirits seem like they never get angry at all. But contrary to what they show to the world, INFPs have a constant battle within themselves.
Whether you wanted to make friends with an INFP, or are intrigued with how they live, it could be quite a challenge to find these free spirits in real life. Not only that they are one of the rarest personality types in Myers-Briggs 16 personalities, but they’re also the type who purposely go in hiding.
“Snowflakes.” “INFPs are crybabies.” I guess these are the common stereotypes we always hear about INFPs. At some point, I agree that we do are soft and sensitive. I won’t deny that. INFPs do shed a tear on many circumstances – when we’re under overwhelming joy, or watching tear-jerker movies, or by simply listening to
Can’t reach an INFP? Or did an INFP ghost you? Truly, when an INFP disappears, they leave no tracks and even purposely hide from the world. Unfortunately, there you are, wondering, “why?” since you never saw it coming. Frankly, this INFP trait is troublesome and drives people to worry and become anxious. Truly frustrating. But
