    Default IEI/INFp struggle separating reality from fantasy

    So as an INFP, I *cough* sometimes *cough* see something there when it's not there but I can't see that it's not there because I'm so wrapped up in my fantasies and etc, then how do one know if it's actually there? Things like crushes, for example. How am I suppose to trust myself if I'm not really a reliable source but then at the same time, it's not like I can trust my friends all the time to take care of my guy problems... advice? ideas? Huh.

    I don't know if delusional thinking is an INFp trait but it is often included in the profiles of the insane and serial killers. If it turns out to be the latter, then congratulations. You're well on your way to becoming famous.
    No, it's just something that happens when the Introverted functions are allowed complete autonomy without influence from the outside.

    In other words, flex your Extraverted functions.

    Think about anything that you might find initially irritating, and do it. That would be learning to use your Ne.

    *bows head*

    Sometimes I feel very lucky to be INFP.
    Other times though, it's just like damn, why me, why can't I be one of the normal extrovert people.
    Like normally I'm pretty quiet and talk to myself more than others.
    But I had some beer last night and I totally talked and talked, completely at ease so I'm like, why can't I be like that 24/7, easy-going, relaxed, completely chill. Normally I worry a lot and am nervous which leads to being sweaty. Yea, I'm also very jealous. Some girl can walk down the street and I'll be like life is unfair, I wish to disappear...but anyway, great that you found yourself an ESTP.

    I'm sweaty to!!

    Sometimes it's like toxic!! smells like some strong chemical shit!! IT dont even go away if you shower and if you mix in perfumes it's like cheap perfume mixed with smelly ass sweat that makes you puke!!1111 '

    It's great to open conversations though.. "do I smell? O rly? I thought so.. but you smell really great! may I lick you?" then follows great steamy sex!

    I sweat a lot too, but it usually doesn't smell at all.

    Like after gym class, even if it's not all that intense, I get totally sweaty, and I look really weird for the rest of the day, and have to put water in the hair to make it look less sweaty. I'm the only one of my female friends in my gym class that this happens to. Maybe I'm just much more active than the rest of them.

    I always have to ask them, "Do I look really sweaty?" Apparently, my face gets red too.

    Just felt compelled to toss out the thought that not all extroverts are "normal". And that being an extrovert is over-rated.

    One thing I hate about being an Introvert is that we seem much more susceptable to headaches.

    Really? Maybe that's just the types?

    That might be true, because I rarely get headaches. Maybe it's because I'm good at ignoring the , though.

    I have headaches.

    1) My eyesight is like totally screwed up. One eye sees things smaller and the other makes things bigger so my brain is playing a sort of ping pong.

    2) And there's another ping pong thing. Back to the topic. I seem to have like...two little creatures on each shoulder except it's not good and evil, it's like idealistic/dreamy/optimistic and the other is dark/insecure/paranoid/realistic maybe and I constantly go back and forth. I see my ex crush in one view sometimes and other sometimes in another view and it's like ARG, who is he.



    We think too much, that's what it is.

    I don't know if delusional thinking is an INFp trait but it is often included in the profiles of the insane and serial killers. If it turns out to be the latter, then congratulations. You're well on your way to becoming famous.

    I thought it has something to do more with the weak Te/Ti. Anyway the above advices are priceless and im actively using them. Just talk about it with your friends. If you want to save face or something ask the questions as if you don't give a shit, approaching the theme from the ring road and then collect the little things which can help you refresh your picture. Anyway keep in mind that most people aren't as critical as yourself so just ask. If you have ESTp/ISTj around go there first and don't be afraid to look stupid. they will most likely understand you and help you with pleasure.

    ....

    Si isn't so hard to ignore. actually it's too easy to ignore (at least for me) and it might get you into some little/big problems. anyway i used to have headaches from time to time just as you. it was kind of amusing. i was thinking im taking part in Pi:2 or something. try to take advantange of the "delusional thinking" and the weak Si. like if i have headache when i'm walking down the streets i try to aim at some shadow (of a building for example) and brainwash myself into thinking that in the moment in which i cross the shadow my headache will be gone. most of the time it works perfect and after 5-6 mins i'm okay.

    ....

    What kind of hash do you use?
    they call it INFp

    I don't see what's so important about the possibility of extraterrestrial life. It's just more people to declare war on.

    EVERYONE PLZ CONTINUE TO UPLOAD INFINITE AMOUNT OF PICS OF "CUTE" CATS AND PUPPIES. YOU KNOW WE GIVE A SHIT!!
