Sup my fellow INFP's?
As INFPs, it's pretty common to find that our rep involves being perceived as sensitive and insecure. Many of the topics on this forum coincide with insecurities becoming an issue we'd like to fix or discuss...yet I've noticed that virtually none of them (at least recently...) involve or emphasize physical insecurities. This makes sense, as it seems as a consensus we would value the character of a person much greater than their appearance, as well as the fact that this website is devoted to personality type.
However, we live in a world driven by a very specific idea as to what beauty encompasses and no matter how subjective one's personal sense of beauty may be, it is hard to avoid. I have struggled with confidence issues based on my appearance, and still do to an extent. Nothing too bad, but it can affect my interaction with people at times. I can be idealistic about the way I want to appear vs. the way I actually appear. I find that I can be hard on myself about the way I look and in the past felt guilty for falling for the ridiculously good looking guy and not the guy with a compatible personality .
Have any of you struggled with confidence issues relating to your appearance? Do you have (or have had) any insecurities based on your looks? What is your perception of physical beauty? Would you say it is "idealistic" in any way? What are your thoughts about how one should physically appear?
