Interesting idea. I'm sure we'll have our moment where our dreams will finally be more prominent in our lives, or maybe they do have some significance in our actions, we probably just don't realize it. Dreams are a somewhat unreal and mysterious thing to comprehend.As an INFP who has actually thought about this as well, I can say that I don't actually think I "dream" very often either. I also don't think of myself as imaginative very often, but I have my days.
I often feel like maybe I'm an odd INFP out because of this fact also... Especially reading on "famous" INFP's.
I feel like some of the INFP authors must have a whole other world inside their mind, but I, on the other hand, do not. I tend to rationalize everything, but enjoy "what if's"...
So, I definitely was surprised to see this topic. Even the name of our personality type feels contradictory to myself. But I have noticed INFP are very contradictory in general so I don't put much cents into it.
Then I think, "maybe it is just a phase?" I used to be much more imaginative and was a spot-on NF child. But it seems the past few years have been less in my head and more me trying to learn how to socialize and made me live more outside my head than inside.
I almost feel empty when I realize this. I used to feel much more depressed and lonely, but I also felt more content with myself. Such a strange thing to say.
Wow, that turned out to be a huge rant.
But I do still have incredibly long vivid story-like dreams...but I don't do any actual dreaming very often.
