Hello everyone :)
i'm an INFP female and since I first read about the MBTI, I could develop myself a lot for the better.
But there is something I never managed to deal with:
I know that as an INFP, the primary function is "Introverted Feeling" and everything we do and think is basically influenced by that. Of course, as probably many INFPs, I have a hard time making plans and getting some structure in my life. I know that Extraverted Thinking (our inferior function) can help with that.
And as I have many people around me with Te as primary function (for example my long distance boyfriend or my dad), I know how easy it is for them to just take action and do things, without overthinking them and getting lost in their thoughts and feelings.
Every time when I try to use Extraverted Thinking a little bit more, I get anxious and completely stressed out in some way, because I fear to miss out something important or to neglect my gut feeling. I just feel a lot more comfortable being in my head, but as I am now at a point in my life where I need to move out of home and get a job, etc., I know it would be good and helpful to feel more at ease with planing and structure.
I would be really grateful if you can share some advice or experience about how to develop Extraverted Thinking more (without feeling stressed out and inauthentic).
Thank you very much in advance, I appreciate your help! :)
Best regards :)
