We all know INFPs have a tendency to be self-critical. We may find ourselves focusing on our weaknesses or percieved weaknesses to the point of becoming miserable.

Since there's always another way to look at things and there's an advantage to every disadvantage, I thought it would be good to focus on the advantages for a change.

Being self-critical = being aware of our faults, not becoming arrogant or thinking we're better than anyone else.

Procrastinating = hours of time saved when we end up not needing to do a task after all.

Feeling unpopular when you see someone with tons of friends = not having to spend time/make the effort with tons of friends.

Not participating in social activities = not participating in social activities
:laughing:

Not jumping in feet first = not jumping in and falling flat on your face + maybe some amusement when you see someone else jump in and fall flat on their face.

Being reserved = the world doesn't know your business, can't use your secrets against you later.

There's always a bright side.
Please add your own examples

Always wanting to do better - Doing better
Being emotionally volatile - Unpredictable, interesting
Takes a long time to process new information - Extremely deep and developed understanding of topics... eventually
Slight laziness and boredom with repetition - Not wasting your life working, and actually enjoying yourself
Being emotional - Apparently the chicks dig it. I am yet to see evidence of this.

Not participating in social activities = not participating in social activities
:laughing:
TRUE DAT

Being too quiet to be noticed = hearing secrets because people forget you're there

Sensitive = spotting fakes a mile off

Appearing innocent and naive = many advantages when you're not innocent or naive :laughing:

Yes, always trying to do your best
Having compassion for others
Loving animals
Being interested in serious and not so serious theories - seeing a topic from differing angles in order to make your own point.
Seeing a greater picture of things - seeking wholeness
Being able to ask "why," "why not," "how," "what's next," "what will happen if...,"
Mixing things that are not seemingly mixable - coming with your own idea and a view of things
Liking a variety of subjects - being curious about the world.
Not wanting to hurt purposely anyone.
Liking childlike people just for being an innocent and kind addition to the world

Lots of great examples from you all
:laughing:

Having your opinions dismissed because they're illogical = seeing the looks on the faces of those who dismissed your opinions when it turns out you're right.

Being misunderstood = people unaware of your motives and intentions.

Being clueless about fashion = not having to wear half the things that are in fashion.

Not keeping up with the Jones' = saving a fortune and more amusement when the Jones' don't know how to use what they've got.

Being weird = never needing to explain yourself because your friends think "That's because you're weird".

Appearing like you don't care = people don't attempt to drag you into their dramatics

The bright side of being INFP? We are naturally inclined to looking towards the light.

Yeah, it's not poor observation skills, it's dots in our eyes from the light :wink:
