Hello, Its Daey
& I'm coming back another thread,
This thread is about us as an INFP ''culture'' & different lifestyles or cultures we a community are into.
(I'm personally interested with all the future answers also.)So lets begin, shall we?

***
My choice of living would probably be perceived as ''non-traditional'' or ''non-conventional''; but it doesn't really
put a stain on my thought process because this truly a decision I came up with on my own. It didn't take me very long to figure out what type of lifestyle I wanted to lead, I believe this process came as naturally as it would anyone else. I was a born-minimalist. I first realized I was like this, when I thought ''money'' was the ''source of evil'' which isn't completely untrue.I valued more of my creative side rather than my ''realist'' side & sometimes that came with a few cons. I don't want to live in a house, I don't like the energy of a big house. It just doesn't feel right to me. (INFP's have to feel themselves to be authentic in every waking moment of their life) I would rather live in a small cabin in the woods, an apartment or an town house. Something small enough for me or two people. I don't want to be married, Yet I do have a desire to have children. I don't like marriage because I don't want to deal with the responsibility of another person, If you're confused about that, don't ask. What I am saying is I'd rather be responsible of my own child rather than someone elses. I want to live in the style of a bohemian/grunge/hippie. I really like what they stand for, they are so freeing & I like things that free the soul, symbolically. I am a very spiritual person, I believe in bad energy & always had.
I don't see myself attending any religious based associations. I'd rather just have a personal relationship with god and I. I want to talk to him on a personal level. I don't like being with other people, many may not understand that; but I don't expect them too. I really want to live a calm, tranquil and relaxing lifestyle. I've decided to move away from my family not because I don't like them; but I wanted to find a kindred spirit family of my own.
***
Very eager to see your comments.

And...GO!

this is an interesting topic to talk about, my English is not good to describe all my ideas of my dream lifestyle , but i always dream to live in an small island where i can live with nature to the fullest , My religion is the kindness, and i believe we don't have to get marriage or have children to have a happy life, just do what you want and become a helpful person. That's enough for me.

My ideal lifestyle is the one I already have except I would have much more money to do exciting things many times a year, such as travel, be able to afford certain social events, concerts, more cinema, more culture, etc. Also, I'd be able to afford more books.

The lifestyle:
A quaint home in the countryside surrounded by forest, with sublime home decor ("sublime" = my personal taste, beauty is subjective) with a garden. I work on my home & garden everyday, it is my joy.
Ideally, I have a job that I enjoy.
Ideally, I don't need a car to move around, but of course living in the middle of the forest I would need one (*cries*).
Outside of work, daily life consists of being in the forest with my husband (we're not married on paper, but in heart & behavior yes so I call him husband). I collect the herbs and edible wilds and greens and fruits and nuts and seeds I can find for our consumption. I spend half my days studying herbology.
My partner and I are very much into "old times" recreations, such as viking recreations, and that's basically how we like to live. We make our own stuff and rarely buy stuff. We know how to sew, and construct stuff, and make crafts, and I cook and bake excellently everything from scratch. We don't eat processed frankenfood.
We like archery, sword fighting, working out, hiking... that's how we spend our days.
I say "we" constantly because he is my lifestyle too, as weird as this might sound. I can't imagine a life without this person. However, I already lived like this when I was single, and I will continue to have this lifestyle whether this person is here or not.
If we had the money, we'd travel around Europe more.

I'm into simple living, but I'm not a minimalist at all. I have tons of cooking pans, baking molds and pans and stuff, I like to have tons of trinket boxes to keep my art & crafts supplies, I have three thousand cushions in the house, puffs, rugs, glorious curtains, textiles made in Europe and India... everything has a purpose, I collect nothing "just because". If it doesn't have a use, I'll give it away or sell it. But I use everything I own. I also tend to have six million plants in every room of the house. I like lush interiors -and exteriors.
Tea & infusion & elixir drinking is also a crucial activity in my lifestyle. I pee a lot as a consequence, but hey love my herbs.
My lifestyle also includes meditation, yoga, swimmin in the river, going to the ocean once or twice a week, reading tons of gorgeous fiction books, flea markets, farmer's markets, attending spiritual seminars and conferences, going to manga conventions once a year... so many things!
Ideally we'd install solar pannels on our roof and pay no taxes for it. Yeah keep dreaming ¬¬ Taxes are there, we must deal with it I guess, grrrrrr.
I dress impeccably (to my own taste) with eco clothing and jewelry made of recycled metals. My image is majestic.

Fiiiiin.

My preferred lifestyle is the 'yippy' lifestyle. When you adhere to this lifestyle you basically do whatever feels good. You wear what feels right, you decorate your environment in such a manner that it makes you feel happy and you ALWAYS follow your instincts when it comes to people.

Work: you put a lot of effort into your work. The yippy is commited & passionate. But when it comes to work you follow this rule => I work so I can live, I don't live so I can work. In the end your personal life is more important than your career. If your career is negatively influencing your personal life then the yippy will work less or look for a different career path.

Another important aspect of the yippy lifestyle is laziness. Every day there must be some time for yourself, one or two hours to laze about. Donuts may or may not be consumed during the lazy hours, that entirely depends on how easy one can acquire said donuts.

Yippie's travel a lot. They want to see the world AND they want to learn from all the different cultures on the planet. Learning. Also very important for a yippy. He or she is not obsessed with learning, not at all, but they are curious creatures and they will spent a a significant amount of time on doing research.

Lastly. The arts play a key role in a yippie's life. A yippy listens to music almost every day, he reads literature, poetry and once in a while he visits a museum. But paradoxically the yippy can also enjoy 'lowbrow' activities such as attending a sports event.

Thus one could say that yippie's are complex people, who are interested in & enjoy many different things, and that they just do/buy/wear/listen/read whatever the hell they want.

Multiple streams of income from music, writing, art, and investments/stocks/real estate that allows me to really put in time to my art. And the ability to walk away or run away at a moment's notice. If I want to pack up and leave for Europe, South America, out west, out eat, wherever, I can do it because I have the funds and don't have any work commitments.

The ability to not have to worry about money and to be able to take a break if I encounter a serious depression, an illness, a family commitment, or just a personal retreat.

Influence, power, status, and respect from my work. Powerful friends in many different fields, and a wide range of connections in many walks of life.

Some people say all they want is happiness, but I don't think I'd like complete happiness. Without any struggle, without any ambition, without anything worth fighting for, life would be boring and meaningless. I'd feel like I wouldn't be growing and progressing. So I always want a little bit of challenge, a little bit of chaos, and to never really lose my ambition or drive.

The best food, drink, leisure, and lots and lots of sex.

A giant library that can house all of my books.

A badass dog at some point as well. Maybe a big aquarium too.

:cool:.

If I could do whatever I wanted, I would travel and record through art, writing, or photography. I would record, for my own pleasure, the impressions and feelings about life, people, and places. Experiencing life is so vast, and so there is a lot to choose from. I would also have time to just soak in information through research or direct experience (or both).

I would also have more time to spend with friends and relationships.

I would want to garden and spend time in nature or with vegetables.

That's all I can come up with.

Some variation of a bohemian lifestyle. Working with materials, wood for example, to create sculptures, furniture ect and sell. Living in a valley with CGI-like scenery with good human and animal company.

Travelling the world spreading my idealistic teachings. Changing the world, making an impact, being fulfilled knowing that I'm living my deepest purpose. Not having to adhere to anyone's standards. Making the world more the way I think it should be, more alligned with my own ideals. Appreciating arts and music and the freedom of living every day spontaneously. Love.

Freedom and self-determination seems to be a common thread here. Also, I want to join the yippie movement.

Having a shitload of money so I could try to make the world a nicer place with them, investing tons into art and human rights and pro-freedom projects, while living some extravagant bohemian lifestyle.

Or maybe some goddamn peace and quiet.

I don't know. But if I got one, I would probably want the other.

To have a big, spacious farm house in the country-side, with lots of windows so the sunlight can shine through. I want it to have an upstairs area, because that seems nice and fancy to me and I've never lived in a house like that before lol. I want it to be in the country side so I can open my animal sanctuary (my dream goal).

My animal sanctuary will take in all sorts of animals: dogs, cats, birds, cows, pigs, you name it. I'll give them all the homes they deserve. I hope that my current boyfriend will be living there with me, with all of our dogs and rats (pets) lol. My farm sanctuary will be run my friendly, dedicated people who will help me to look after the animals. We'll live near a pleasant, cute town that's surrounded by a romantic, majestic forrest. However, we'll not be too far from the city in case we decide to party it up. We'll have lots of money, so we can go wherever we want, whenever we want.

Dat life of luxury tho <3.

I have many dream lifestyles.

Probably live on an island or a treehouse or a bohemian/hideaway in the city. An island in the city. Or a treehouse in a city. And just design/create a place just for me, and have a place where I can create and ponder/reflect and look up at the stars and read/listen to music and have a family eventually. Write. Dream. Publish something. Be known/appreciated for my work--but mostly understood. Help others through teaching. (I want people to be fully prepared because I've noticed that they don't give people the right footing/tools to truly THRIVE/hone craft. I want people to know that they are not alone.) Feel inspired continuously and give love to others. Sleep/talk on a hammock with future significant other and look at the stars/clouds sometimes. Feel free/give freedom/understanding/love and hope that people will always take it with them/remember it.

Huge library.

Be a hummingbird.

Create a garden/plant flowers/lights everywhere around them and listen to the birds in the daytime for inspiration.

Create a room--family tree room/cultural room--collectibles from every place.

Be a woodpecker.

Be a tree/wonder what it's like to be a tree/plants.

Be a Camellia in a forest.
