  9. [INFP] Is travelling the best cure for the negative effects of INFPism?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    As with many INFPs, I'm prone to melancholia. One of the issues for me is the whole "living in the future" thing. It's good for introspection and planning for self improvement, but sometimes, I fantasise about ideal scenarios which I know are unrealistic. But it causes me to have expectations...

  13. [INFP] Questions on Personality Change.

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    This was posted somewhere else on accident. It should be here instead. I'm scared about who I am. I like me and I hate me.

    Cognitive Functions
    I've been super into Self Improvement lately mainly on a psychological level. That being said I'm wondering what you guys think of developing your functions? Do you think it's better to really work on what comes naturally or work on the shadow function? I personally feel like it's best to...
