  1. [INFP] I Don't Know How to Be in Love

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    For the first time in my life, I've started to wonder if love is, perhaps, not real. I've been in a relationship for about 1.5 years now. I love her but I know she's not the one, and I don't think I'm in love with her. There are moments where I've felt ridiculously giddy and head-over-heels for...
  2. [INFJ] (indecisiveness) vs. (idealism and perfectionism)

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Which one has been more problematic for you? I read somewhere that INFPs are frustrated by indecisiveness and INFJs by idealism and perfectionism, do you see any difference between them?
  3. [INFP] Idealizing People Without Realizing

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    For the longest time I didn't even realize I was idealizing people-- and now, when I do it, sometimes I'm aware of it but I don't know how to stop. I want to work on NOT idealizing people so that I stop getting hurt so much. Does anyone have any advice? It takes a lot for me to truly open up to...
  4. [INFJ] Are you ever "attacked" for your trust in your intuition? (Relationship specific)

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Are you ever "attacked" for your trust in your intuition? (Relationship specific) Just curious how many other INFJs have experienced this. Often this conversation (or something like it) happens to me: "Why didn't you ask out/go out with that girl?" "Well, I knew I wouldn't work out, so I...
  5. [INFP] Cynical INFPs

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    While many people say that cynics are just defeated idealists, I find that I'm idealistic on the outside but deep down I'm very cynical. This doesn't affect my appreciation for the world around me much but I cannot identify with idealistic world views. As INFPs we're often called idealistic and...
  6. [INFJ] How do you curb idealism with potential relationships?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Fellow INFJS, Hello again. It's been a long time. About a year since the end of a terribly unhealthy relationship with an ESFP/ENFP (on both our sides, I realise now). It's a closed chapter and there was no salvaging it, so no need to get into it. I've spent the last year working on whatever...
  7. [ENFP] ENFP and the Heart of Darkness

    ENFP Articles
    Written by @Vishalmisra A cursory glance of MBTI will leave you with the knowledge that there are 16 personality types, each assigned a 4-letter code. There is an inherent problem with this; and it is as follows: we all meet people we tend to give 4-letters to as human beings, and those 4...

    INFP Forum - The Idealists

  11. [INFP] INFPs' foolishness in infatuation/love

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Two days ago, I went to eat dim sum/yum cha with my family at a Chinese restaurant. We live in Asia (Singapore to be specific) so it's a lot more specialised to Chinese tradition than it probably would be in other countries like America. So I was very surprised to see a Eurasian waiter there...
  12. [INFP] Are INFP's more likely to play games where they're different people?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi guys! This is actually my first thread, and I hope this isn't already made. Anyways, is it normal for INFP's to play RPG games, otome games or other games where you can be someone else? I'm guessing it's because we're idealists and we can be our idealized selves while playing those games...

  14. [INFP] Deadliest Sin : Sloth or Pride? (Perfectionism + Idealism = Lack of Motivation?)

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I think out of all of the Deadliest Sins, my greatest challenge is Sloth with it's parent, Pride, as a close second. More specifically, I think this can also apply to a fair few INFPs out there... of course, there are individual differences, but I'm interested in other people's opinions and...
  15. [ENFP] Too much idealism?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    OK. I'm a relatively young (fifteen years old) (suspected) ENFP. As all of us know, NFs in general are known for their emotional, dreamy idealism. I'd say that fits me quite well - even if I'm going to school, I know there'll always be something good to look forward to in the day: something...

  19. On Love

    Blog
    A few months back, my husband and I were messing around play-acting as if he was God and he would provide me with the answer to anything I wished to ask. I had one of those weird half-seconds where I thought “Hang on, what if God has actually decided to talk through Graham to me for a minute...
  20. [INFP] Ouch! Why do INFPs do this, romantically?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello INFPs and INFP forum. I have some INFPs that I dearly love in my life, but a few of my friends and myself have been severely hurt by INFPs in non-platonic ways. I have identified a pattern of romantic destruction (yes I am an SJ) that these INFPs have committed in each instance to hurt me...
