Does anyone find it disheartening how there are so many posts critical of INFPs online, and so very few that are positive? I was reading some threads on other sites/forums about how INFPs interact with other types,(last of which was this, on the INTJ site: Why don't INTJs like INFPs? - INTJ Forum which really wasn't even close to the worst of it) and I'm not gonna lie, it kinda hurt me a bit... I had no idea that people who had similar personalities to me were SO unappealing to others. I mean, I knew my personality type wasn't the coolest, flashiest or most popular, but the criticism is just SO MUCH and that thread isn't the best example. It also makes me worried that I'm inherently flawed when it comes to finding love and there is so much to overcome... I know type isn't everything, but there's an overwhelming trend between INTJs and ENFPs, and everyone likes INFJs, INFJs seem to be quite vocal in their dislike of us, and ENTJs don't seem to be particularly fond of us, so on and so forth. People are either 'meh' about us + often the best thing they can say is that we're 'harmless' or something. We don't register or we really piss people off. If there is something nice to say it's always 'oh INFPs are cool I guess, BUT ...' There's none of that soulmate relations trend that our other feelers seem to have. people say ENFJ but I NEVER seen an INFP-ENFJ relationship that has lasted. this all makes me wish i was a charismatic, bright ENFP or something.
I suppose this is a whiny post, but it's also not... it's more of an observation. In all my time perusing the forums, MBTI community on reddit, all separate personality sites, etc we are definitely the most vocally disliked while simultaneously being seemingly the most overlooked + perhaps disliked + deemed as useless in society. Additionally as a 4w5, I feel so alien. Has anyone felt this sense of alienation from the various communities, or re-affirmation of low self-esteem? It's been such a clear trend to me, and I'm surprised more people don't note it
