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 Idealism of Wonder Woman

Yes, again, here’s another post similar to that of the previous one I did on the Flash. I write this because I just saw Wonder Woman in theaters. This will both be a review and will discuss a bit about INFP-related things I saw in Wonder Woman. And unlike the last post, I can promise…

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…

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…

The Science of Fidgeting

In one of my previous posts I discussed how we can learn a lot about INFPs through ADD and ADHD. During the section on hyperactivity, I said that I feel the need to be doing something all the time. If I’m doing school, I need to listen to music. If I’m sitting in class, I’m usually…

Biology and How It Relates to Introverts & Extroverts

I recently “revisited” a few of the old ideas within Classical Conditioning. As I am a Psychology major (though still a freshman), I have been taking several classes in Psychology. One of which being Psychology of Learning. In class the other day, we discussed Classical Conditioning and how it relates to introversion and extroversion. If…

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…

INFP Shadow Functions – Introverted Intuition

In the previous post, I explored the INFP’s first shadow function or the INFP’s fifth function in the cognitive stack. This post will explore the INFP’s second shadow function, Introverted Intuition, in depth. The second shadow function holds the Critical Parent role. This role concerns how individuals find weak spots in other people’s arguments and judgments. Now, to…
