    NEW INFP - (Enneagram 9)

    Hello All,

    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...

    I'm still trying to understand INFPs better as I'm trying to understand the basics of every MBTI and how their introversion and extroversion work...and how their cognitive functions work with each other.

    From what I gather, an INFP is constantly asking himself if what he sees, hears, does, etc. is 'him' (Fi)...they can use their Ne to grasp right away if a person or a place or anything matches up with who they are. I can relate to that...I wouldn't say I'm an INFP, though, because I'm not constantly doing that. That's not how my Fi and Ne work primarily. Plus I have oodles of Ne lmao

    This was written in a blog by an INFP:

    INFPs need time to reset. We have this mental/emotional bookshelf where a book is an emotion or mindset. The acts of everyday living—going to work, interacting with people, striving towards goals, maintaining our lives—requires pulling a book off the bookshelf to access what we need to live in the day-to-day.
    As we use those books, they pile up and as more things happen day after day, going through the piles to find the books we need takes longer and longer. Eventually, we have to take some alone time and put those books in our mental piles back onto the bookshelf. That’s what I mean by resetting.
    Alone time doesn’t actually mean being hidden away from everybody. It means being away from those that requires us to pull stuff off the shelf which is usually people we care about. INFPs are being perfectly capable of being alone with people around, just not with people we know.

    As an ENFP, I can't really relate to that, although I can try and imagine...
