I took a look at this site and found it to be super interesting. I am a little obsessed with the workings of my own mind and personality as well as others. I'm still reading and learning about the MB and Enneagram personality assessments. I've read INFP based forums here and I am amazed at how I closely related INFP's are. I am also into Astrology and Numerology. I am a Cancer with a Virgo Ascendant, Libra Moon. My life path number is a 7. I'm mentioning this, because there seems to be a fine thread connecting all of these aspects and it makes sense. According to the 41Question quiz I am approximately: 55% Introverted / 65% Intuitive / 100% Feeling / 100% Perceiving.
I am in my early thirties, and I think I have become less introverted in the course of my life. I really ride the line here. Sometimes I am introverted, sometimes extroverted. Depending on how I feel and the energy around me. I'm not super outgoing, but I have no problem talking to strangers in an attempt to be friendly. Extreme extroverts, tend to intimidate me and I close up. Especially if there is a percieved competitiveness or agressiveness. I will easily give up the spotlight and I dont like cockiness or confrontation.
There must be very few INFP's in the population, because I've always felt really different than my peers. I was never the outcast or anything, I just always felt like I was different on the inside, which made me feel very insecure in my earlier years. But in adulthood I have learned to embrace my awkwardness. lol... I have a deep interest in the mystical. A vivid imagination that I use to inspire my artful side or simply for mere amusement. I love the quality of imagination and creative thinking in others. Fact based logicality with no let up, tends to bug the crap out of me in casual conversation.
Opposites attract, as all my friends are extroverts. When I'm kickin it with a friend, I tend to get quiet at times and I'm comfortable with it as long as the other person doesn't seem bothered by it. I have a quite extroverted friend who I hang out with regularly. When we are around other friends, he is ON! The social butterfly, entertainer type. But when it is just him and I, we can just chill for long periods of time together without talking, and it feels perfectly comfortable. I need these kinda people in my life! I wouldn't say I'm super reserved. But people have to work to get to know me. I'm a listener, not so much a talker. And unless asked, I don't offer much information, though I feel I have a wealth to share. One of my biggest peeves is people who love the sound of their own voice and lead conversations, which only revolve around them. I cant stand to be talked over... Fakeness bugs me too, I swear I can talk have a five minute conversation with someone and I can see their sincerity.
With that said... I'm ready for this! Thanks for reading...
