... I believe we'll be the 40's or 50's. I mean, think about it... The women at those times were so motherly, caring, soft, sensitive (They seem to cry a lot in really old movies at that time, lolololol.), feminine, and wanted nothing more but pure unadult rated love, where a family can be formed and bonded together forever to come.

Not to mention, we have some serious style going on. XD

Well, I'd probably be one of the following:
Ancient Rome, Greece, or Egypt
Feudal Japan
Renaissance Italy/France
Late 60s California
80s United States

I do like the 1920s-1940s in music, poetry, cinema, etc. There is a great gorgeous aesthetic and then a beautifully tragic and cynical mood/attitude/worldview to the era.

But then, I'm androgyne.

Most INFP females, I think of them as being more like the 1700s/1800s (Europe).

I can't say I personally relate to this.... Most of those adjectives don't apply to me.

I always thought the 60s had an NFP vibe. All of these radical social movements for change, questioning the morality behind certain views, and celebrating peace & love, etc. Not necessarily the hippy aspect, as that seems SP to me - quite hedonistic. I don't think I would have want to lived then, but some of the ideas seem representative of an NFP attitude.

The Romantic movement of the 1700/1800s also seems very NFP to me also.

I do like vintage clothes, but I prefer the early 60s mod styles to the 50s pinup look, but some 50s clothes are really nice. I like feminine style, but I also like the modern variety women have - pants, skirts, shorts, skirts that are also shorts, etc :tongue: .

Gotta agree with OrangeAppled on this one. Few of those traits can be applied to me. I suppose the "caring, sensitive" ones can, and the "motherly" vibe certainly gets projected onto certain people. But the others? Nah. I'm known for a horrible sense of fashion/style/color.

Our time is probably in the future. Something like the Star Trek universe, which is very idealistic/INFP-ish. It'd be great to live there :laughing:

I think probably the 60s... but then again I'm a bit of a flower girl :crazy:

I don't think of myself as motherly. I don't even want children. I'm pretty sure every other INFP wants kids, just as much as every other woman wants kids... but honestly it would be too much of a drain on my time, emotions, and resources. Raising a kid isn't for me :unsure: I'll gladly watch my friends' kids every now and then but I'm not at all "motherly". Or family oriented. Families are pretty messed up.

Love between two people? Adventure? Freedom? Those are things for me.

I wholeheartedly agree. The decade before the 60's for me would be hell... McCarthyism and paranoia. It's fine to think about the romantic vibe about it but I'm a bit more politically inclined so that would be a big chunk of how I'd be living. I'm a much more liberal and free-thinking woman who doesn't like to be held back by stereotypes. Kids are definitely not for me, I honestly don't even like most of them. Far too childish myself. :tongue:

yeah, I agree a lot with most of this statement! I was gonna chime in with the 60s as a suggestion....the social movements, etc. When I was young (a teenager), I was convinced I was born in the wrong time period. Not for the hedonistic aspect, but for the rest of it.

Well, my headfix is 7w6, I'm all for hedonism (especially as a cultural countermovement). :proud:

I don't know my enneagram stats, but hehe, actually when I was a late teenager, I got into the hedonism aspect (counterculture movement) of the 60s quite a bit, actually. I usually tested as an ENFP those days.....

7s are known for hedonism/Epicureanism. I'm SOOOO Epicurean. :laughing: I don't see anything wrong with that.

Oh no...I definitely relate to this. No kids for me either :happy:
