This is a discussion on INFP 9 Thread within the Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker forums, part of the Body Triad - Types 8,9,1 category; It needs to be said - - -> to the 3 pictures of the man below and the Batman and ...
toooootally. not sure if this is a healthy 9 thing or 8 wing influence.
i also find it interesting that the 9 struggles with sense of self while the infp feels so essentially different from other people.
my experience of this combination has been that i sometimes find myself in moments of reflection outside, like when it's really nice out, feeling a deep, deep appreciation for the way light falls on anything, the way someone so carefully decorated their yard, feeling like i have love for all living things. i don't know how to use words to express it without sounding like a cheeseball, haha... also a motivation to uncover "universal truths" about life and people via extraverted intuition, etc. remaining neutral about things consciously despite maybe sometimes having an opinion secretly... until someone gets personal with me.
Im an INFP and a 9w1. I've only recently descovered this whole personality thing, and i'm amazed at how accurate it was for me (i'm a natural skeptic ofcourse). I have to say that I'm proud I am what I am. It's not easy being us, from my own experience, and from what i've read amongst us. But alot of amazing people have been INFPs atleast (not so sure when combining enneagram ideas) and we are capable of amazing things.
Personally, I feel like i'm constantly searching for something. I also have a suspicion i'll never find it. I keep feeling like sometimes I find that place, but when i get there, it's not what I was after. So i've decided a life of chasing whims and good feelings is my bearing. I'm much the same, and avoid any personal conflict. Though i've notice when playing sport my personality can change, and I can become quite aggressive and unforgiving, almost an ESTJ I would say. It's very interesting when I undergo this change, it feels good, im not unsure and withdrawn, im in control and feeling the power.
I am interested in any creative outlets of 9w1 INFPs. Do we all have urges to express ourselves in some creative outlet? I myself play an intrument. I like to write songs. I enjoy poetry, I love words and the sound of words when perfectly used. I like to write, thoughts and feelings, ideas and philosophies, poems and storys. But of course i'm never satisfied, and never finish them. Does anyone else have this urge?
I score different on different sites on this site I score 2w3 9w1... as in my signature but on eclecticenergies.com I score 9w1 sx ( a little embarrased of the sx type ). I took both test twice ...
I can relate to what @Danwise and @moonradio was saying and can definitely relate to the type description that says 9's tend to take on the energies of people around them.
As for creative outlet - Yes I write alot, inspired writing, philosophical pieces and thoughts, songs, and other musings, I also sing and in my younger days I danced. I am terrible with getting lost when trying to formulate myself verbally ( I am still trying to understand why this is because it is something I frequently feel embarrassed about. I recently received a piece of good advice which was to carry a note book and jot down what I wanted to say before speaking.) In writing on the other hand I believe I am fairly clear in my expression. It is something I am very self conscious of and try to work on. Sometimes I succeed mostly I fail miserably and withdraw from social situations instead.
Being INFP shy reserved self conscious and a sociable mindful people person just creates a really strange contradiction and internal conflict of interest at times.
Never knew this thread existed... thanks for bumping it!
Yeah, I am INFP and 9. Nearly everything in all the above posts sound like aspects of me. I abhor conflict. It exhausts me physically and emotionally very quickly. I fear it and avoid it at all costs. I do pick up the feelings of others around me and am affected by them very easily. It feels like I am out of control in some social situations and can get very anxious when I am uncomfortable with the vibe. Sometimes I can speak extemporaneously and do ok... be funny even. But more often I am always a half step behind myself and stumbling over my words.
Hi! I heard there were cookies.
I'm an INFP 9w8, though I'm bit fuzzy with my wings and it changes from year to year. I certainly have the w8 stubbornness though.
cookies? where ? are they chocolate chip?
