I embrace darkness. I don't see it as "dark=bad'. Seeing and/or knowing me, you wouldn't think I was a dark person, but I have my moments. I guess I'm just nonjudgmental when it comes to the dark side of things.

i dont see it as bad either. im just really wondering if i truly am an infp, so i find these questions important to ask. i took the test multiple times.. regarding the dark mind, i think it enchances my life in the way that i can channel it through my way of being and it feels like it is my secret ingrident of my achievements. i write a lot, i sketch faces and make music too.

i like crystal castles' 2nd album.. its has that melancholy feel. a tip if u are into music

I do.

Sometimes I scare people a little with how morbid I can be.

I like dark atmospheric music.

I certainly don't see the world 'through rose tinted glasses' like INFP's supposedly do. If anything I see the world through x-ray glasses. That is to say, seeing things I probably shouldn't or not being able to appreciate things at a basic level if I see what's underneath it all.

Funny you said that, I'm listening to Crystal Castles II right now, and I will see them live in November. They're great stuff!
I'm pretty eclectic, but I listen mostly to black metal, post-punk, experimental, death metal and electronic.

I can say I'm naturally attracted to the more obscure/dark side of the things, I'm also a bit morbid. But I have my 'happy' moments, but they are usually more the frenetic/sick/crazy ones than the balanced kind. Anyway, I guess there are different types of INFP. And about 'seeing the world through rose tinted glasses' I agree with that to the point I try to find beauty in everything, I like to make my life look like a movie, I like to love the unhealthy and the macabre, the dirt and the sad.

There's dark as in liking uncommon/odd things.
Then there's dark as in emo, jaded, spiteful.

I prefer the former.

Who are we to say what is dark?
That's how I think pretty much... always questioning what we consider to be not considered... so not really a dark mind, but a mind always asking questions but never getting answers.

Yeees. In my daily normal interaction with people I think I'm like the nicest guy I know, however what it is in my mind is something very different. I could write a very loooong post about this but I have to do it quickly:sad:. I love dark, melancholic or every disturbing feeling that passes through my mind and gives me some chills. As long as I remember, when playing video games I always chose the strange or evil character. In all the series, I always felt an attraction for the evil guy too, but not the stupid barbarian guy, only when he had something macabre, psychotic or "elegant", I don't know how to describe it very well. I love when feelings are like "mixed" or "confused" too, like when I don't know if I am supposed to feel happy or sad when listening to the part of a song or when I'm watching something that is cute and gory at the same time and I am like: "Oh, I don't if this is good or bad, but I feel that I'm understanding emotions far beyond stereotypical thougts of normal people". As I said in another thread, I think that the idealistic part of an INFP is much more than "make this world a better place", at least not in a too direct and simple form where we saw the world 'through rose tinted glasses' and we only wanted to think about little fluffy bunnies, but much more about "understanding the truth in this life and its true emotionality". I think we can experiment some things in their genuine form and with much more intensity than others.

I have this subconscious obsession with darkness that I sometimes don't realize. In my fictional universe I made up in the stuff I write, the concept of darkness plays a big role in everyone's lives, and my favorite color is black. I used to think it was blue. It shows in the products I get, and the fact that I like black clothing, though I do have some other colors in the shirt department.

I soak myself in melancholy (disappointment in myself that comes up too often). I am not proud of that though, and its a bad feeling.

Oh, when you said "dark" I thought you meant that as in "violent", and I was going to mention my "Are You Ever Surprised You're Not a Serial Killer or Rapist" thread, but now I realize you meant dark as in melancholy. People tell me I have that, too. I'm not depressed anymore, but it's easy for me to go to mind-places others would consider very dark in that way, I guess.

I've had the vivid imagery in my mind of bashing someone in the skull with hammer before, if that's what you're talking about.

Sometimes I'll sink in those feelings, indulge them for a while but eventually I want to come up for air. Listening to music helps me, too. Driving & music, loud music, music I can sing to or hum along with. I sing & explore nearby towns. The best is going for hikes to remote locations. Don't bring anything, 'cept water, I also like fruit & some cheese. Then sit, breathe, listen. Good thing for sunny days. The sun. Befriend it. I don't live where I used to, having moved recently, so I don't have any known spots as of yet that I can visit. Music & exploring until they discover me. Yeah. Getting out of the house can be enough to clear the clouds.

Crystal Castles = Awesome

Yes...I can relate. I'm the one who goes graveyard hopping all over Los Angeles....am fascinated with morbid things....loves all things dark and gothy... I've always been like that, don't know why. I'm not dark as in liking violence...I abhor violence. But I'm fascinated with weird things I guess most people would call "strange" or "morbid"... I'm actually pretty happy and optimistic most of the time though...so ...go figure.

I don't know if I'd say I have a dark mind in the sense of being melancholy as a home base for my thoughts to stem off of and return to. But I am not fearful of exploring scary parts of myself that would otherwise be hidden. I enjoy diving into every emotion.

I thrive off of intensity of feelings and ideas. Darkness intrigues me because it means there is something to figure out.

I do have a dark mind but I ain't depressing or such, I also love the dark things but I don't "act" dark, Best way I can put it. I'm bad at explaining things like always. I can have a dark sense of humor. :laughing:

This makes me feel best way I can put it: Chaotic Neautral.

I probably didn't make any sense.

I definitely see life through rose coloured glasses, and I always have. But romance is a dark and tragic thing. You trip and you fall and fall and fall and then you hit the ground. Blood splatters everywhere and you lay there, alone and helpless and hurt, pain coursing and pulsating through your body with every beat of your heart, stinging and burning. You can't get up on your own so you just continue to lay, every bone in your body broken and smashed and shattered. And then someone comes and helps you up and heals you back to normal. Now, ideally, that should be it, it just keeps getting better from there, right? But most of the time you either push them off a cliff, or they push you. And then there's more falling.

That is beautiful.

Dark is fascinating. We don't want darkness in our lives but we love it in others. We're all selfish sadists. But it's who we are. One of the reasons we help is so we can ease our own guilt at enjoying it. But it's not the drama that we enjoy. No, it's something much crueler. It's pain showing with silent tears, a small twitch of the fingers we notice through the corner of our eye, and the cracking of the voice when they're not really okay.

My rose coloured glasses are cracked and coated with blood.
