When you spend almost half of the day today researching on enneagram personality types because you are thinking of renewing your strength in your character, drive in life, and somehow both the idea of you being both an 'intuitive over analyzer' (4- which you've always been) and a 'peacemaker, harmony seeker' (9) appeal to you greatly. You feel a keen rush, as if your life will inevitably change, and you want to hold on to it because you don't want the storms to take it away.
You know you're an INFP when you put soul in everything, even in small little things and you never forget the things that touched you and ment something to you. In fact, in some things or persons, you put too much soul than you should and this can hurt you.
I met a colleague today where I used to live when I was a kid, till Iwas like 8-9 years old, couldn't helped jsut driving along the narrow streets, checking out my old school, checking out what has changed. I did this last month when I met her in the same place, now I also checked out where my kindergarden was (couldn't find the exact spot, just the streets) and where a friend used to live and went to his birthday. I have some pictures in my mind...I just can't let go of them, it's so hard. I grew up there, suffered there, been happy there, ran and played and laughed and cried and felt fear and joy...it's a part of me.
I've been asked and puzzled even NFs, why can't I live this crappy polluted, ugly to the bone city. Because I hate a lot of things about this city. Unfortunately I was born here and am connected to it, all these memories, all these little things...all these emotions. It's like I'm into S&M or something , loving something that hurts me.
So, I guess you're an INFP when you can't (or have no clue) how to stop caring...I guess you just have to live with it.
You know you're an INFP when you stare into the night sky every night right before going to sleep.
You know you're an INFP when... "Why don't I start my homework so I can finish it on time for once ? Oh actually playing the piano sounds better."
you know your friend is definitely an INFP when she tells you to do something you don't want just to make your flatmates happy.
You know you're an INFP when you can spend a few hours researching and over analyzing on certain things, regardless if they benefit you in real life, simply to fulfill your curiosity and need to know more about human nature
You know you're an INFP when you like the idea of encouraging others to see unique and creative connections
You know you're an INFP when you have something you want to say, but it just will not come out the right way when you try to say it or write it. So it will most likely remain unsaid.
You make $261 in a crappy part-time job and donate all of it to your favorite charity
...when your wife finds your cell-phone in the fridge. "Honey-yy...?"
...when you miss your bus stop because you were imagining something unreal and the 10 minutes real time on the bus took only 1 minute your time.
...when you decide not to get off the bus because you want to look at the beautiful girl there a few minutes longer, only to see how she gets off and you'll never see her again. Then you cross the street and take another bus back...or get to know a new neighbourhood instead while wondering how many other passengers were riding the bus for the same reason.
