Are There Any INFPs Out There...

... Who self-harms? I know it's such a morbid topic, but I was just wondering, seeing as how we're extremely sensitive and feel emotions much more strongly than most. Plus, with the very limited supply of us wandering around the world... It's no wonder we feel very lonesome from time to time. :(

What do you think? Do you, or know any INFPs personally, who has/currently/are planning to self-harm?

Yes. I cant' wear short sleeves anymore.
Haven't done it in a year, though.
I'm sorry to hear. :(
If it makes you feel better... I've done it as well.
I have about 27 scars. I haven't relapsed in about 6+ months.

Now I just use rubber bands.

i never have but i learned about it in peer counseling. like most people ihad thought it was self-destructive behaviour, but they tol us it's very different that self-harm is just for realise-and thats something i can understand-i jsut hope you can find i better outlet for all the stuff you have bent up, or better yet that i'll go away
Yes, it's a form of release. Some people do drugs; Others have a lot of casual sex to fill in a hole. (No pun intended. Maybe.) XD

When I do it, it's like all the bad feelings go away in one sweeping motion.

When things would get bad, I would hit myself or literally bash my head against the's not something that I'm proud of. At the time, though, I didn't really know of any other way to express the turmoil that I felt inside...

I never have cut myself. I'm glad that I haven't, and I offer my sincerest comfort to those who do...


I also have a rather bad habit of digging my fingernails into my skin, or scratching repeatedly at a certain spot on my arms and thighs. I usually lay off when they get so bad to where the skin gets raw, but it's more force of habit than anything anymore. :p
D'aww hun, I'm so sorry to hear about that. I remember doing the whole scratching and biting myself as well as pulling my hair. I heard about cutting when I was in middle school, almost got close to cutting in 9th grade, and then finally my senior year I started.

I hope you feel better soon!
Actually I've used razors to carve into my skin for years lol tho have not done it in over a year.
It was a sexual/"pleasure" thing
And I can't wear anything above my right leg's knee lol
About the sexual part... I've never saw me cutting myself for the sexual release. :O This is new!
However, in bed, I make sure that my partner knows that he needs to call me his bitch/slut/whore and to remember to spank me and scratch me when he's doing me.

Yes, I am shameless. :cool:
