This is just for relaxation :D :D :D I am wondering what are other INFPs childhood beliefs, because these are MY childhood innocent beliefs:



1. Scientists are studying moon because later we all must move to live on the moon. Mum dad will have to pack all our household to carry in the space shuttle during the move out day. Maybe have to make a few trips to bring all the stuffs to the moon

2. Babies are born after a man hugs a woman, their bodies make molecules that combine during hugging (i think all kids believed this)


3. Victims of rape should have just pushed the man away, what is so hard about pushing?? I just dont get it...I would have just push and walk away like usual ~~


4. If we tear one of mosquitoes' legs, he can go warn other mosquitoes not to bite us because we are dangerous


5. The world (trees, land, people, water) was white and grey before 1980s that's why movies are only black and white (its nothing to do with camera technology like the adults were saying)



6. People are POOR if their houses are made of wood



7. Mom dad refused to buy the toys i wanted not because they didnt have money but because the toy was $7.90 and mom had $10. The numbers didnt match *sigh*

Lets see what are YOUR innocent premises!!!:tongue:

I can guarantee that I didn't. The first time I thought about the subject was when my second cousin explained to me in detail how the process of making a child worked. It was very graphic and I was about 4 or 5 years old I think.

Cute topic.

I used to have a philosophy journal... when I was 8 I wrote;

"hate makes the world go round, but love stops it from falling".

^ hows that for 7 year old intuitive feeler physics?

I used to believe vehemently in the spirit of santa claus and the easter bunny. I always thought they weren't real; but they were spirits or something, so they could never be 'seen'.

I wanted to believe in magic, and always wished for my letter to hogwarts which never came :sad: (I got one from Durmstrang instead :dry:). When I was 8 I actually looked for platform 9 3/4 at the train stations here. Unfortunately the cretin muggle engineers, only design platforms in whole numbers, making the task a fruitless pursuit :frustrating:

I think I had an affinity with the mystical but not religion (though I was still realistic in most regards...), but I can't really remember any other beliefs I had.

I used to read Enid Blyton books as a kid, and I used to want to believe that there were such thing as wishing well, or spells. During bath time, I would mix toothpaste, soap, shampoo, and all that you can think of in the basin, mumble some hocus pocus, and really and genuinely wish for the toy which my parents refused to get for me. It never worked:(

I used to believe that I could harness lightning. I would put a huge metal rod out of my window, hoping that lightning would strike it. What happens after, I do not know.

And I believed that if i was a "good boy" in class, by being quiet and obeying the rules, I will have many friends. I had that misconception when I was young. I never understood why the bullies, or supposedly the kids whom the teacher always scolded, had many friends.

Why would ur cousin explain to u d whole subject when u r just 4 or 5?! lol.

FYI, I nvr understood the whole thing until i was in 15..for 15 yrs ive been believing that all it needs is hugs and kisses (bcoz movies never showed more than that,so i believed thats all it takes)

Speaking of harry potter, I'd like a flying car. Sometimes, I wonder if we can want something so badly that we actually believe in it. Maybe like the Law of Attraction-If you want something, you must believe that you will recieve.

I had nightmares all the time when I was little to the point where I started thinking they was real, I ended up going to my mum saying "There's a scary guy in the living room" It scared and creeped her out a lot haha. :tongue:

From the age of 2 I was playing Video games, My first game I ever played was Sonic the Hedgehog, Fell in love with it and played all of the Sonic games up to Sonic adventure 2.
I really wanted to be like Sonic, To be fast and free, So I spent a lot of my time running around and trying to break out of my house (which I was very good at some how) Including the nightmare thing I said above as well, I really wonder what my mum thought her son was lol.

I used to think the wispy clouds that look sort of like a pathway were there for people
who died and needed to walk into heaven.

I used to think that by counting by tens to 60 I found a faster more efficent smarter way
to count a minute then everyone else.

I always thought that you could crawl into the T.V.

I thought that if there was a storm you had to throw your cats under the bed
in order to protect them from it..My cats used to hate me for that lol

I also used to think that the earth was a big snowglobe.

I used to think that the Lake was really some sort of women and whenever she
had big waves she was mad at someone,I used to go in the lake with the waves and
talk to her and try to make her nice again:blushed:

I also used to think that the shape of the clouds were the people and animals who died
saying hello to everyone.

1. when you run out of money you go to the bank and they give you money

2. Babies are made by concentrating very hard.

3. Carrots give you night vision.

4. If you had cent coins, combining it with a dollar coin would make them all the same dollar value at the shop (thankfully I never put this one into practice)

5. Santa used to eat the food we left out for him. (my fathers expanding waistline has since disproved this)

i used to believe my aunt is a witch because she used to stay up late and whisper to herself (to this day i actually think she might have been a witch. i would lie terrified in my bed and wonder what kind of spells is she casting. once my beloved cat bit her quite bad and even though i pretended to be sorry for her inside i was even more convinced. the cat must have known she's a witch as well, hence the biting.

then there was a period when i thught my grandma was an alien because she never ate much and i figured she pretended to eat but actually she didn't need 'world' food.. i guess i was pretty paranoid about my relatives.

then for a while i thought that i'm actually a boy but my parents aren't aware of it. no idea why. at that time i thought that i think as a man or something.

i also used to talk to plants and animals like hens and vehemently believed they understand me. i used to tell them my problems. i guess i didn't have that much friends when i was little.

Mine escape me but I vividly remember believing that the road I lived down, because it was a busy main road, actually led to Saturn. I told my mother that as well, ah good times. If you follow it far enough it leads to London, so I wasn't far off in the end.

This is so fun!

For me:

1. Mary Poppins being my favourite film, I used to believe that I could recreate the tidying up scene and snap my fingers and all my things would come to life. Whenever this failed to work:laughing:, I thought I just needed some more practice.

2. I believed my teddies were alive and they all had different personalities.

3. I was convinced that Malificent, the witch from Sleeping Beauty hid in my wardrobe:confused:.

4. Regarding breastfeeding, I thought the baby had to actually EAT the breast! My mother (who is very ample-bosomed) remembers when she was feeding my baby brother and I screeched ''Does he have to eat ALL that?!''

5. I saw no reason why I couldn't be a mermaid when I grew up.


HAPPY DAYS!:laughing:
