  1. [INFP] romanticising sadness, over-narrativising myself - any INFPs experience this?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    i've already posted an almost entirely similar post on the psychology forum, but i wanted to hear specifically from INFPs, so i've copy-pasted a huge chunk of it. (too lazy to rewrite.) this has a lot to do with two facets of my psyche. 1) i've been influenced by the romanticisation of...
  2. i think i overnarrativise myself - any psychological insight?

    General Psychology
    this has a lot to do with two facets of my psyche. 1) i've been influenced by the romanticisation of sadness, and i'm aware of it. you know what i'm talking about - the whole online trend of glorifying sadness and emotion. i first bought into it almost ten years ago, for probably about three...

  4. [INFP] How to find emotional strength?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I crumble really easily. Most people don't see me cry though, as I've always hidden it. And I've always been incredibly sad because of situations outside my control that make me feel weak- health and family mostly. But I see other people who are enraged by their struggles, or always have 'fight'...
  5. [ENFP] Love advice needed from your infp sister :) ..

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi guys. I am asking this question here because you guys know a lot about other mbtis and would probably provide better judgement. I have been seeing an ENTJ post 3-4 weeks after my previous breakup. We met on an online dating app (guess what it is..lol). He said "I think you're a lovely...
  6. Think I have feelings for my straight female friend...sighs

    Advice Center
    Hi guys, So, a conundrum. Basically, I'm either ridiculously obsessed with this girl in a platonic way (gal pals, yay!) or, I'm hopelessly in love with her. Neither of these situations are ideal, considering a) she's straight, b) she has a boyfriend (who I like and respect very much...
  7. [INFP] Any other INFPs out there who don't feel anything??

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello all! Recently I've been feeling like I don't really feel anything and I was wondering if this was a common trait in INFPs? I'm obviously a feeler and I'm about 99% sure I'm an INFP, but there's something about me that doesn't feel quite...right. I'm incredibly sensitive but when someone's...

  12. The truth is (Brutally Honest)

    Blog
    Hello all, This isn't going to be cheerful, neither is it going to be miserable. Not over the top or below it. It's just going to be that - the truth. The truth is - When you're young, your parents tell you everything but some things - how sad life can be, how different you can be, and how...

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors

I don´t want to say that they must help me, I should fix my problems for...
  17. [Enneagram Type 7] How to help a 7w6 who is having a hard time?

    Type 7 Forum - The Enthusiast
    As a 4w5 I find 7 very hard to understand. I have one who I care for very much in my life who is having a hard time. The only thing I can think of to help him is have fun with him, and remind him that I love him and that I'm here? I'm afraid of being too smothering. Thanks

    ISFP Forum - The Artists
    Am I the only one who feels this powerful emotional attachment to characters in games, movies, and TV shows?
