A friend of mine (INFP) was taking to me the other day about how at her work (retail store manager) some guy was hanging outside of the building in his car asleep. Her coworkers were all wondering why he was there and what it was all about but she said that she didn't really care because he wasn't bothering anybody. Finally, one of the coworkers ended up calling the police... She ended up having to go outside in order to talk to the police to give an account on what (didn't) happen. She was annoyed more than anything about the whole situation. Especially with her coworkers. What's interesting though after all of that the coworkers were all still asking about why the guy was there in the first place....gossip was going all around about how he might be homeless, or kicked our of the house with the girlfriend he was living with, or a drifter, or a drug dealer.... And more interestingly enough she told her coworkers that she never even bothered to ask the police why he was there in the first place. She still didn't know and didn't want to know. And what one of her coworkers said to her was, "Oh...so you don't know. You don't need to know...that's clever...really clever actually...hmm never thought of that". lol?
Funny story but it made me think about the unknown. We still have a long way to go in order to explain everything with science and stuff but there really is waaay more out there that is unknown that is known.
So being the INFJ that I am I took it to that next level and I asked my friend about what she thought of the unknown and if she was comfortable not knowing things, like science and religion and spirituality and she said she was fine with it, in fact she preferred to be in a situation like that rather than where everything we know is known 100%. "That would be boring." I thought the same exact thing I told her. And it's true: I find the unknown a lot more fascinating (fun even) than the known. The unknown gives us new perspectives to look at things and understand on another level you know?
So what do you think? Are you comfortable with the unknown? Or more comfortable with what is known? Or do you not mind either way? Why? :D
