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…

On the Need for Normalcy

I need things to feel normal… in short. Sure, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t want things to be normal. Everyone wants ease and the ability to relax. Personally, however, my “normalcy” depends on key characteristics of my personality. Introverted Sensing, my database of memories, ideas, thoughts, and personal data, creates a “tradition” for me to…

The Creative Spark

My mind is quiet. The quiet before the storm. The still of the city at dawn before the hustle and bustle. My mind needs to think. It needs to race and whir with life. Images fly across my eyes. A projection of fantasies shields my vision from the gray world in front of me. Thoughts…

On the Need to Be Myself

I’m going to take a break from my Shadow Function series and take a moment to reflect (Like what I was already writing wasn’t reflection). I frequently watch YouTuber Nerdwriter1, who creates video essays that critique and praise different ideas and styles of culture. I recently found a video he made back in 2012: a critique…

My Emphasis on Good Experiences

This post is again different from a few of my previous ones as this post illustrates some feelings I’ve had perhaps because I’m INFP. If many of you do feel the same way, that’s great, and maybe this isn’t even an INFP or introvert thing to begin with. So here we go. I care a…
