INFP Thoughts #5 – On Feeling Comfortable Around Friends

One too many times have people expressed how quiet I am. Every person I’ve gotten to know has eventually mentioned, “You’re kinda quiet.” Sometimes, however, I may surprise my friends (and myself) when I suddenly begin to act more open and act talkative. Both starkly different states of social behavior are based on how comfortable I…

Primary & Secondary Pairings – Pairings

In the previous posts, I discussed the different pairings of Ne/Si vs Ni/Se and Fi/Te vs Fe/Ti. In this post, I’ll discuss how the order of such pairings can affect the individual.

INFPs, for instance, have Ne and Si as their second and third functions respectively. INFJs have Ni as their first function and Se as their fourth function. Those with the Ni/Se pairing…

Introverted Feeling – Roles – Primary Processes

Previously I discussed the roles of the primary and shadow cognitive functions of the INFP, because the order of the functions can dramatically change a personality in many ways. For instance, as I also discussed earlier, ESTJs and INFPs have the same cognitive functions, however, the cognitive functions are reversed. Even though both INFPs and ESTJs…

INFP Thoughts #4 – On Stress and Uncontrol

INFPs, like all IPs, are self-directed and introspective in nature. Because of their”Fi”, INFPs have mapped themselves to a great extent and seek to understand themselves through their morals, values, and emotions. INFPs understand themselves and know how to make their own decisions because of “Fi”, to the extent that INFPs feel that they have…
