A Stream of Thoughts – #2 – On Being Unique and Alone

It’s easy to think I’m overly unique. While I’m good at understanding how other people are feeling, it’s easy to isolate myself from the crowd and feel I’m special. Sure, I’m unique, quirky, quiet, but lots of people are. I’ve got my own gifts and ideas that can’t be shared with others. There are a…

The INFP College Experience

My first semester living on campus is almost to a close. Crazy how life-changing 3 months can be. Sorry for the late post, I’ll mention. Felt the need to both write something and reminisce for once on the experiences of the past semester, thus the purpose of this post. Like the title suggests, this post…

Hiatus (Thoughts on A New College Semester)

Sorry about the hiatus. It’s been a while. College has been a crazy transition. Anyways, thoughts on this transition: So, I’m a transfer student. I’ve already had a year of college on my belt. I’m used to change, used to showing up in less than a dozen classrooms the first day of school, being around new people, teachers, and such. Such changes…

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,…

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 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…
