thoughts and feels and thoughts and feels [userpic]

With reading up on INFP, I begin to think that the twitches and twinkles and complete paradigm shifts of late have been due more to an upswing in N rather than a gravitation towards F.

From personalitypage.com:

Their primary goal is to find out their meaning in life. What is their purpose? How can they best serve humanity in their lives?
INFPs are highly intuitive about people. They rely heavily on their intuitions to guide them, and use their discoveries to constantly search for value in life. They are on a continuous mission to find the truth and meaning underlying things. Every encounter and every piece of knowledge gained gets sifted through the INFP's value system, and is evaluated to see if it has any potential to help the INFP define or refine their own path in life.
Although they may be reserved in expressing emotion, they have a very deep well of caring and are genuinely interested in understanding people.
(Well, except on my misanthropic days.)

They focus on the way that the conflict makes them feel, and indeed don't really care whether or not they're right... This trait sometimes makes them appear irrational and illogical in conflict situations.
INFPs do not like to deal with hard facts and logic. Their focus on their feelings and the Human Condition makes it difficult for them to deal with impersonal judgment. They don't understand or believe in the validity of impersonal judgment, which makes them naturally rather ineffective at using it.

I wish there was some lenience for other functional preference hierarchy. INTP is Ti Ne Si Fe, and INFP is Fi Ne Si Te. But I think I Fe more than I Si. If that makes any sense.


Am interested! ::makes note to self to search out INFP comm, but is going to refrain from doing so right now, as has only an hour till the library closes::

The points I have as "false" are not only things that I don't like but that are simply innaccurate for me - I am *all* about being 'right' (by whatever rules I am operating under,) and tend to assume that any emotional difficulty I may have with this situation is my comeuppance for being foolish enough to take wrong information to heart to begin with.

It should probably also be pointed out that whoever wrote the profile I sourced could perhaps have put it more clearly.

Ere I delve too far into the preferences post you made - should I post remarks there or here?

Am thoroughly fascinated. (Still.)

I'd hoped so (I shudder to think what kind of a time I'd have cataloguing 20 comments worth of replies) :D

Er, ... I get raw-HTML email comments, and it says you did send me the HTTP one (I haven't clicked the link from your comment yet).

::rolls a d10 (smarts)+d6 for 'exorcise HTML demons', aces both::

::rolls a d4+d6 for charisma, gets snake eyes::


Sorry, I relapse to formulaic humor when at a loss for explanations :p

This is odd - it's linking me to your 'replace' link as FTP too.
