The Paradoxical Personality of the INFP

INFPs are fickle creatures. They are guided by their emotions; whichever way the wind blows, that’s where the INFP will go. Thus, the INFP often portrays traits that seem to go against previous traits they’ve shown. This can often create confusion among close friends and family because of the INFP’s ever changing moods and desires,…

A Stream of Thoughts – #1

I would like to say I’m a deep thinker, not to derive any pride from it, just to give me more of a sense of self. However, I hope and believe that most people think these things I have written below every now and then, and if not, here they are for all to see….

Perfection

It’s hard for me to see the world the way it truly is. I’ve mentioned in past posts how I live in two worlds, fantasy and reality. Often, my body occupies reality while my mind is usually in fantasy. Sure, I appreciate wonders reality has to offer, like the beauty in nature or the wonder…

Realization

It’s quiet. I’m alone, by myself, thinking in solitude while hiking in a forest. Or, maybe I’m in a coffee shop, listening to music in a quiet corner. Or, maybe I’m driving late at night, watching speeding headlights pass in the corner of my eye as I trying watch the road in front of me….

Nostalgia

Note: Just another random train of thought I’ve had late at night. I’d be surprised if there’s any true profoundness to any of this, as I just need to write thoughts down. I’m only 19. I’m going to be a sophomore in college soon. However, I can’t help feel like a lost or forgotten soul….

The Goodness of the Flash

Today, I’m going to work on something a tiny bit different from things I’ve written in the past. I wanted to explore and discuss the Flash, specifically the CW TV show because the Season 3 finale just aired this week. If you could care less about superheroes or would rather see something more INFP-related, I’ll indulge…

10 Things I Wish Others Understood About INFPs

Sometimes we actually don’t like being misunderstood. 1. Hypersensitivity Yes, INFPs can be very emotional. The saying that sadness is actually happy for deep people is definitely true. We INFPs like to indulge ourselves in emotion and can almost detect all of it around us like the hyper-aware INFJs. Just because we feel more deeply…

The Emotional Life of the INFP – Anxiety

In a previous post, I discussed several emotions of the INFP and how, what, and why the INFP feels. As most of it was a brief overview of how the INFP feels and what triggers emotion, I decided to go more in depth and discuss a few specific emotions of the INFP. We INFPs feel…

The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows: A Fellow Thinker

I’m currently working on several posts (been busy lately, haven’t posted them yet) but I wanted to leave you guys with a few “thoughts”. There’s a wonderful YouTuber out there named John Koenig. He has a great website titled,  “The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows”, and a YouTube channel of the same name. He explains his mission…

Daily Introvert Struggles

So I’ve already discussed a few struggles introverts and INFPs have, but I thought about going more in depth. In a way, I’m hoping to be more “sincere” than a typical, clickbaity “10 STRUGGLES ALL INTROVERTS HAVE” (I’m already failing I’m sure). I also added the word, “Daily”, in another effort to be more sincere (hopefully)….

On the Need to Be Remembered

I’m probably one of the only people in my English class who is actually enjoying most of the readings, besides my English teacher, but we recently read The Unknown Citizen by W. H. Auden. In a way, The Unknown Citizen is in relation to The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, honoring an unknown person of high standard…

Life in Between the Lines

  Reality is never truly perfect. Well, at least, not man-made reality. Much of our lives are spent on the paths and roadways of reality. “I work from 9 to 5.” “Show up to the party at 1600 W. Central Avenue.” “My alarm is set to 6:30 a.m.” We stress, especially in America, these highways…
