    I've always enjoyed alone. I've always been a loner. I mean, I have always attracted a substantial amount of people and friends in my life, but essentially I did not always need them to seek comfort or happiness. As long as I remember, i was off somewhere by myself, digging whatever and would probably be boring the hell out of anyone if they were there. I remember often as a young adult going out by myself to crowded people places and sitting there, perhaps writing poems about life in my mind or on paper, as if my own little island...all alone...no matter the crowds around me.
    I will tell you also from years of experience that few really understand, except perhaps 'us' and that 'they' will always try to buzz kill you from being how you are by manipulating you into believing that you are somehow damaged goods. Guilt sucks...it really does and it also does nothing for the way we live our lives.
    Listen to your heart...to that silent little place of calm... and know that what works for the noisy extroverted world does not always work for us.
    My thoughts.

    Like friends will call me to hang out and I don't want to go out. I just want to be alone but I don't really have a good excuse so I just ignore it.

    I love to do things alone. I go to movies alone and go shopping alone. I love to cook things I've never tried or just spend the day watching old movies alone. I just get satisfaction from it.

    It's not that I don't have friends. I have about 6 or 7 close friends that I could hang out with and I also have a boyfriend. I just don't want to very often. Social events just...annoy me. My boyfriend sometimes has me hang out with his friends and him and it just bores me.

    Does anyone else just want to be alone sometimes?
    it used to drive me absolutely nuts- then one day i just told all of them individually that while i cared a lot about them, i got tired easily outside and that i need to have a lot of alone time to recharge. i also thanked them for their thoughtfulness in inviting me but firmly explained the reasoning behind my decision. after a while, they finally understood my position. :) it sucks seeing the disappointment in their eyes sometimes but they dont push me to do anything anymore

    I Vant To Be Alone!

    LIFE is not always more meaningful when shared with another person.

    If it's good enough for Garbo, it's good enough for me.

    "I vant to be alone":





    Page of famous loners.

    From "Party of One": Hell hath no fury like a majority scorned. & "Groupthink was a survival tactic when sieges and plagues threatened the futures of clans and cultures. Now it's an evolutionary remnant that we are free to disregard."

    Loners swim farther.

    I love being alone and I need lots of time alone even if I have spent the whole day alone. I don't like people pestering me to do things with them which is quite unfortunate for me because I have a cousin who is always at my house and she always needs to be doing something with someone. That can get quite annoying as it stops me from doing things I would normally do if I were alone or just with my immediate family who don't really intrude on my space. My cousin also likes to look through my bags and room without asking me or warning me which makes me feel a bit violated.

    I like doing all the stuff mentioned alone. I have a girlfriend and plenty of good friends, but I would usually rather be alone.

    Absolutely, us ENFPs need to recharge alone too. Remember that!

    My last girlfriend was a hardcore INFP, although most of the relationship was great I did feel bad that I could just see her energy drain when she was with my friends. She was polite about it, but just spoke very little and spent most of the time hugging me and trying to rest get me to sit down and shut up long enough for her to rest her head. I didn't mind too much...And I understood :)

    If I'm around people constantly I sometimes need to be alone... But since that doesn't happen ;) and I'm usually alone way too much, I'm always very happy if someone calls me up or invites me to some event out of the blue..

    This happens to me all the time. I love to travel and shop and discover things alone but that doesn't usually happen. Whenever I go to a vacation with my family I just wish I could get some alone time to recharge a bit but they refuse to leave my side and the few times I snap they are hurt. It gets really frustrating.
    However, I do feel lonely occasionally as well and want to hang out with few close friends.

    I like my own company. Even if I were in a relationship, I would need to preserve my own space.

    I also need certain small elements of my life that are private and not shared with others. Not because I don't necessarily trust them, but because those elements are key to my identity and creativity, and I am deeply possessive of them (while not being possessive about a lot of things others might be possessive about).

    Becoming happy with being on your own (and not needing to apologise for it) is one of the best things an INFP can do, in my view.
