Hello! I discovered this forum last night and am happy to join you all. :)
I've tested as an INFP consistently throughout my life. I never really researched it further until this week (on a whim), and am finding it very therapeutic to understand what is going on up there in that spacey head of mine. I can't wait to show my boyfriend the description of an INFP and laugh over all the things he's lovingly poked fun at me for in the past. Now I have an explanation! For many years I've been trying to "fix" myself, as if I was broken. But now I'm understanding that I'm not broken and maybe I can just let myself interact how I do in the world and embrace it instead of trying to run from it. Maybe I can just relax and stop beating myself up? (Probably not because of that whole "idealist" thing... hehe).
I don't normally write this much because I figure no one gives a darn, but I'm feeling typey. Thanks for humoring me!
