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 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…

The Man Behind the Monitor

Don’t worry, I’m currently working on more INFP-related content, just taking a “short” break from such topics to explore… other thoughts.  I’ve been thinking a bit about consciousness lately (as ya do). This train of thought was spurred by one of Vsauce’s videos on consciousness. I recommend watching it. However, I guess I won’t be asking…

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…

From An INFP’s Perspective – Introverted Sensing

Sorry for the delayed post, I’ve been away the past week. Things should go slightly back to normal after this post. In the previous two posts, I discussed Extraverted Intuition and Introverted Feeling both from my personal, INFP perspective. In this post, I’ll take a look at Introverted Sensing again from my personal perspective. Many personality…

Music & Emotion

This post is going to be different from most of my previous posts, because part of it concerns personal observations on my own personality aside from all INFPs. I don’t doubt that some of these observations with apply to most INFPs, but a few probably won’t, as I have asked fellow INFPs if they have…

Introverted Sensing & Relaxing

Introverted Sensing has been talked about a lot in the past few posts, however, I haven’t discussed a whole lot on how it works individually within the INFP. What I mean is, “Si” has many functions when it works tandem with “Ne” or “Fi” for instance, but I haven’t explored its function when the INFP…

“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and INFP

I can be something of a movie-junkie, so I’ve seen a lot of movies. So, any movie that causes me to say, “Wow, that has got to be one of my favorite movies”, means that that movie must be really good. And so, saying that The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (with Ben Stiller) is my all-time…

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. Though everyone has Ne/Si, Ni/Se, Fi/Te, and Fe/Ti through primary and shadow functions, as you can see, the order that each pairing comes…

“Ne” vs. “Si” – Newness vs. Familiarity

In the INFP’s cognitive stack, Introverted Feeling comes first, then Extraverted Intuition, Introverted Sensing, and finally, Extraverted Thinking. Now, having both “Ne” and “Si” so close to each other is somewhat unusual, only 1/4 of all personality types have “Ne” and “Si” as either 2nd and 3rd functions. And though 1/4 honestly isn’t rare, that…

The Emotional Life of the INFP – Part #1

As I’ve covered in a few posts, INFPs are very emotional and are in touch with their emotions more than any other personality type. Though everyone has emotions, INFPs feel them the most. INFPs also have a tendency to project their emotions, and emotions are what drive the INFP the most. I thought it would be…
