Ok, let me first start off by saying i have read into these forums before and today I decided to join, hopefully to get a better understanding of my type. I first got into the Myers-Briggs a couple years ago. I obsessed over it. It helped me realize many things about myself. After awhile I stopped reading about it, but recently I have started again, and hoping other infp's(who may be more knowledgeable with this) who could help out.
Ok, so i'll start out explaining a bit who I am.
I am a 23 year old male. I have a decent enough job in healthcare where i make the average wage around 40k. I have a wonderful girlfriend and we rent a small house. On the side, I am a musician(infp. go figure, right?) I've been somewhat successful at music as well, having recently toured with a major label band, 10 Years. (they do a song called "wasteland" that everyone seems to know lol.)
But i'm here to wonder if other infp's go through the same things as i do.
This paragraph comes from a forum in typologycentral.com
The topic - "what does an unhealthy INFP look like?" I often catch myself being like this.
"insanely moody, difficult or impossible to reason with, extremely defensive & sensitive, have very poor communication & social skills, self-absorbed, cynical, live in a filthy mess of chaos, be obsessed with minor details they've blown out of proportion, passive-aggressive, have an explosive temper (maybe even violent), a major detachment from reality, seem confused & lost in life, be withdrawn, rebellious, depressed, have an inferiority complex, seem arrogant as a defense, and may isolate themselves from people. There might be substance abuse also. "
If you're an infp, do you catch yourself like this from time to time?
I guess what im getting down to is that (after reading up on INFP's) it's sort of a burden to be an infp to me. I see friends who seem to be able to go out and forget about their lives for the weekend and have fun, but I am constantly feeling/thinking about my life.
