Dear ALL INFP's in this forum,

Thanks for tolerating my spamming bullshit without insulting me/cursing at me.

Dear Rowingineden and Lad,

Thanks for being funny enough to make me laugh like a maniac when I read your posts

Dear Oliver,

Thanks for reaching out to me when I needed it the most, like a warm and pure light.


-Izzie :crazy:

Yes I can imagine him portraying a very upfront outward charm when he's in a crowd, but then behind closed doors he'd most likely be reading some super romantic touchy-feel poetry to himself and the ideal woman in his mind :crazy:

And now I feel bad for talking about him when he's not around :unsure: (or is he?)

Lad,

Are you a sociopath by any chance? :crazy:

- FM
Close, but not quite. :tongue:

3rd level Psychopath. 3rd's are created through early environmental situations (read as: childhood) and display similar, but not as extreme, levels of psychopathic traits. True blue psychopaths are biologically engineered though, the ones I've met are truly brilliant though.

I remember there was this one 12 yr old kid, when I met with him he was incredibly well composed. Every word he spoke flowed so easily, but had a level of sophistication in it that I think many people will never reach in their lives. As I asked him questions, he showed me how to re-word them a bit better, and how to get a stronger emotional appeal out of my teacher / fellow students. It was one of the few times I actually felt inferior to somebody, and he was like 9 years younger than me.

And no, not really an emo. I can certainly get intense with thoughts, but I relish in people that are passionate about things. Most people back down too easily, it's kind of boring.

edit: Also, food for thought. It's believed that psychopaths may be created by the mother having the flu during the 2nd trimester in pregnancy. It has to do with cellular formation during that timeframe and the flu interfering with it.

Dear INFPs,

Thanks for allowing me to interact with you; without judgement, without restriction. I really appreciate everyone here, and although I haven't done much for you, I am thankful for the help I've received..Whether you realize you've helped or not. I really feel like everyone here is good..Good in their own way. I like good. :happy:

Thank you for accepting my nature and well being onto the forums. I know I've been shy...But that hasn't stopped anything. :laughing:

Sincerely,

Azure Basss

Dear INFP's,

Sorry I couldn't post this on all of your profiles..So I'll include it here.

''All the ppl u meet along the way are clues to your destiny. Let them show u, not slow u..refer u, not defer u

I just want you to know that a small part of me feels that way about you, like as if I have gotten a little more push and much needed help in my journey of self discovery.

You gave me what I needed, you helped me see me :happy:

Thank you.

I have to laugh at this - it's always interesting to see someone's thoughts regarding themselves, especially when it comes to analyzing themselves through a psychology/pathology lens. I know so many people who would try to pull the wool over others' eyes because it could possibly get them further. Then again, they aren't necessarily successful in life, so there may be something to your methods that just work better.

I've met one individual like what you've described above. Absolutely brilliant, intimidatingly so, though the fluency with which he could manipulate language and intent was fascinating. I felt like a moth drawn to a flame in wanting to hear and understand more. Sadly, most of the people whom I know who are (most likely) psychopaths/sociopaths are not at the same level of being able to know people and be able to mold themselves to those around them or mold the people in their lives in a way that doesn't cause harm.

You do have an interesting theory - may I inquire if there has been any research? I'm always on the lookout for new/developing theories in regards to personality/abnormal psych development. *nods and bounces*

*hugs* to all my INFP friends, and *smiles* for those who like their bubbles.

I've learned much about life, the universe, and everything from your insights and even more about what it is to be human from your laughter and despair. I've come to accept that it's okay to be me and that I don't have to worry about what others here will think because no matter how absurd, how out there, or just plain crazy, the things I write are you still accept me and show me so much love. The best thing is seeing so much true and honest respect for others - for our feelings, our thoughts, everything really - and so much desire to help and make things better. Tis refreshing and gives me hope for humanity. Thank you, all of you. :proud:

The father of psychopathy lives in Vancouver, BC :), Robert Hare (University of BC). I truly dislike him though and actually argued against some of his views. Interestingly enough, the teacher I wrote a research paper to actually knew Robert Hare and forwarded what I wrote.

I wish I got feedback, but I never did. Nonetheless, not too long after there was a posting in the newspaper from him which very closely related to what I was arguing in my paper. However, it had a negative spin to it saying that "psychopaths are everywhere" and to be cautious. My paper insisted that there were many well adjusted psychopaths which often take numerous prominent positions in society that other people couldn't handle. I also insisted that psychopathic traits were in -demand- by employers. Long story short, I said they were the "leaders" of the world. Possibly pushing it, but whatever.

As for the theory, there has been some research and that's how I got wind of it. You know they can never really conclude anything, hell smoking and cancer took like 70 years. Anyways, the name of the study / researchers involved are a little cloudy to me at the moment, if I find it then I'll shoot it your way.

..I tend to ask questions like a child...

In Western culture, what are commonly known as 'psychopath' traits? I think I only know some, but not all.

If you want better, I'll take a picture out of one of my books.

Everyone has a lot of those traits, so i wouldn't throw the term around too much, but it's all about getting professionally tested. For me, I scored high on the actual listing, but not enough to throw me over the top. Hence my label of just being a 3rd, which is probably still somewhat common, but trivial for the most part.

I'm going to shut up in this thread, de-railing it far too much. I did read every post though :D.

I completely agree that there are positions in this world, very prominent ones, which are perfect for psychopaths. I very much so believe that there are "successful" and "unsuccessful" psychopaths - the successful ones excel in life, academically, socially, and in work. So much so that pretty much every CEO or other high level executives are most likely psychopaths. It takes all types to keep society moving, and the drive and ambition necessary to make it to the top is a very powerful force.

The unsuccessful ones are the ones who end up seeing people like me. They get caught up in drugs, alcohol, gambling, and petty manipulation of those "weaker" than them. They blame every failure on others, and every success is due to them, whether it is their success or not and that leads to further conflict within their little world.

It may be pushing it to say that successful ones are the leaders of the world, but I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say that a whole hell of a lot more gets accomplished because they do lead a significant portion of the world. But that is a personal opinion. *shrugs*

I'll keep an eye out for a link or book suggestion. :)
