The fact that something is generic doesn't mean odds are even. Blue-eyed people are more rare than brown-eyed people, for instance.so there is a one in 16 chance the an infp is going to come out, if so then how come it not even; there are percentages, on which type is common and which type is not like infj are suppose to be rare. so come on, ponder some more! :wink:
I'm not actually sure that's a valid question...Like how does someone become an INFP? is it how they are raised? stuff like that
'Deep hurt' is subjective.Maybe I can help answer.
The pattern I seem to see in INFPs is a deep hurt that happened to them early on, a loss of innocence so to speak. Like a divorce, or a move, or a death. With the INFPs I know, and the INFPs I've talked to, and myself, there always seems to be this string of "I'm lost for good" running through everything. The hopeless romantic.
Just a theory I have. But it seems like deep pain between age 0-15 is what heightens the sensitivity, or keeps the sensitivity, there. Unlike what everybody seems to think, INFPs are not all rosy fairytales. There some real darkness there, for better or worse.
Oh, not at all saying that it only is with INFPs. That's lots of types. Just pointing out what I had noticed, a pattern. Perhaps it is not special to the INFP.Note sure that is unique to INFPs. I'm an INTJ and my childhood was hell.
It's kind of a lousy predictor if it has many false positives. Of course, an anecdote (moi) doens't make data.Oh, not at all saying that it only is with INFPs. That's lots of types. Just pointing out what I had noticed, a pattern. Perhaps it is not special to the INFP.
Look...Oh, not at all saying that it only is with INFPs. That's lots of types. Just pointing out what I had noticed, a pattern. Perhaps it is not special to the INFP.
Also important to note that the most important information one ever receives is within the first 24 months. After that, the foundation is already laid.
Agree to disagree, but that position is hardly scientific.Look...
Your type is INFP. You use Fi and Ne first. Fi and Ne give you certain outlooks on life and ways of perceiving things and going about things. It's something you're born with. You perception of certain life events will be shaped by that. I don't think that any type is more likely to have gone through any kind of trauma or pain. That doesn't make sense. Your perception of events is shaped by your type, but your type doesn't change and is not influenced by external factors.
