    The mission given to INFPs (and INTPs) is to integrate their Self, in the Jungian sense.

    To become what they can potentially be, ever more completely.

    All INTPs/INFPs are intelligent, but being intelligent is not enough to create in the fields of science, literature and humanities.
    If they also to be very highly intelligent -- enough to create -- they'll create cultural artifacts while creating themselves.

    Otherwise, they'll still be authors: their own.

    The sense of boundlessness and indefiniteness is normal.
    Since their thoughts, desires and feelings are not informed by society's cast, but self-made, they are hard to define. You can't use socially-manufactured definitions, and give yourself the illusion that those are your thoughts and feelings.

    And since there's no end to the ego's exploration of one's soul and unconscious... the actualization and integration of the self is an endless task.

    There is no goal, except that of constantly walking towards (personally chosen) goals.

    I was feeling a little down recently and i was writing some lines about that. And I would be very interested if any INFPs can relate somehow to this and what you are doing if you find yourself in these type of situations:

    The constant yearning for…SOMETHING! can drain an INFP more than a marathon. As an INFP you feel almost never fulfilled or satisfied with what you have. If you have somehting, you want either more of that or something completely different. There is this fire inside of you which tells you that you can achieve something really great and awesome and you are on fire thinking about that for some moments. But then everything starts falling down and you arrive back in reality where nothing is closely as great or awesome as your dreams. Maybe you have always dreamt about moving to another city or starting a new Job or career and as an INFP you set your expectations high. Very high. But of course, life is not your expectations and what happens is your are pushed back to earth again. And again. Until the day where you realize that you have to make a decision: Do you want to continue setting high expectations and hoping for an awesome life which presents itself to you on a nice plate? Or do you want to face reality and accept every single peace of shit of it and live a mediocre life like 99% of the population does? And thats exactly the point – one of INFPs biggest fears is to be ordinary. Every time you accept a new job position you think maybe it’s going to turn out fine. Even great. You imagine yourself having your dream job. And then you have your first and second and third day at work and you realize that you haven’t been farther away from your dream job in your whole life. You get scared and claustrophobic. And you start to realize that for around 95% of the population your job wouldn’t be the cause for an existential crisis. They would be happy to have a job and they wouldn’t question it for a second. You are aware of that but you can’t fight the feeling of being stuck. You ask yourself „Is that it? Is that’s what other people call „life“?“ You always assume – and are actually pretty sure about it – that there exists something bigger and greater than a daily boring routine. But then doubts start to appear. You remind yourself of the fact that in the end we’re all going to die and no matter how big you achievements have been in your life, you’ll be dead one day. So what’s it all for? What’s the meaning? And you could vomit every time you hear this word. „meaning“ – you know that in the end it’s bullshit because life simply has no meaning. And you know that but you don’t want to accept it. And you also don’t want to accept that still you have to work and be displined and all that shit while doing it. Because you know all this is for exactly NOTHING in the end. Then you remind yourself oft he fact that although life has no meaning, you can still enjoy it and have a lot of fun and make the best out of it. And you get a spark of hope. Because you feel clever now. Like a person who has gone through a lot of shit and finally arrived somewhere where there is light. But this positive feeling doesn’t last too long as you can’t ignore your very strong urge for finding meaning. You want to throw it away and ignore it forever but it’s not possible. It’s like being hungry or thirsty. You can ignore those urges for some time but if you resist them too long, you will probably die. And it’s the same with your inner drive to find meaning in everything. If you resist it too long you will not die physically, but emotionally. You start to be a sad and emotionless machine and the only thing you focus is on surviving. You know you have failed. But you don’t have any energy or willpower to start getting great again...

    Thank you very much for reading this to the end! :) And sorry for any mistakes, english is not my native language. I am very interested in your thoughts about this. Is this a common INFP thing to feel like this or is it just me? And if you ever got caught up in a vicious cycle like this, how did you get out? :)
    omg, this is amazing. i can relate to every word. you summed it up very well - nothing to ad. also,you are a good writer. greetings from Croatia ;)
