    Violent Side of the INFP!

    Now I know that we are depicted as a peace loving, violence hating type but, I have responded violently to bullying and MY reaction to it(and myself) afterwards is that of disgust and hatred. To me its like some crazed animal suddenly comes out(though I suspect its more of a "defense" than anything) when i'm pushed to that "edge" we so commonly speak of.

    anyway I was wondering if there... or rather how many others are out there who also react like this when pushed(or stressed) that much and how you handle it.

    Yeah, I remember strangling some bitches in middle school.

    I almost feel like calling upon faith to test me, because I really can't imagine what would make me in conscious mind get violent. Unconscious - sure. But I can't even kill a fly (mosquitos are a different story).

    Yup, I definitely had rage-y side during my childhood. Either I've gotten good at controlling it or haven't needed it for a long time though, because right now I couldn't force it out even if I wanted to. I rarely used it on people, it mostly came out when I was working on a project and I didn't feel that my work met my standards. It makes me a little sad now actually, I tore up what were probably some nice crafts.

    I totally relate to you on the 'crazy animal' feeling--I act insane when I loose my grip.

    Almost nobody knows about that side of me and nobody would suspect that it exists because I seem so low key.

    I am against violence in principle and am sensitive to graphically violent imagery (due to empathy, blah blah blah), but I have been told I have a "violent energy". It is probably because I can be temperamental; it is not pent-up aggression, as I am not one to repress anger (I probably give into it too much, but I am less fiery than when I was younger). People often tell me that even though I am quiet, that I have a strong personality and they sense I can get aggressive.

    I am unlikely to become violent in defense of someone else, but perhaps in self-defense if I feel my person is being attacked (and I don't just mean physical attack). Growing up, my sister and I would get into physical fights. They would start out as verbal and then escalate. One time I punched her face and broke her glasses. As an adult, I still sometimes want to punch people.

    INTP - The Thinkers

    When I was watching the latest Star Wars trailer, I was thinking a very emotionally wounded INFP would be the perfect practitioner of the dark side. The mix of spirituality and the warped personal values from the emotional abuse they suffered could twist them into something vengeful. I think they'd like having an apprentice to train up also, finding a kindred spirit to help them conquer everything that had tormented them in the past. The INFP would probably be something of an anti-villain, a lot of evil with a modicum of good mixed in.

    I read somewhere that INFPs can give pretty scathing criticism, which I know has been true for me and something I'm trying to overcome. I can see that sort of maliciousness turning into violence if it came down to it.

    About time someone talked about our INFP wroth.

    Has anyone not seen Legend of the Seeker? Pretty much the whole movie is about INFP/INFJ types being tortured because they ARE sensitive and turning into Mord Sith and Confessors and a host of other equally kinky BDSM-y types who trop around to save the world (or destroy it because the feelz the FEELZ). The Mord Sith girls are selected because they are super compassionate and sensitive and then they are tortured and turned into killing machines. Similarly the Confessors are super sensitive but wield crazy power and more often than naught they go a bit psycho and destroy shit.

    INFPs who undergo torture....we are similar. We have an Ideal, the world crushed us, now we are defensive animals unleashing the power of our Feelz.

    Very much Dark Lords.

    Ugh--this post is a monster. No--I am not a violent person and I don't have much of a violent side, but I'm not a pacifist either.
