...when you're about to post something, get distracted by something, and forget what you were going to post.
....when taking a walk alone in a beautiful, scenic place at night, maybe with a boyfriend or girlfriend, sounds amazing.
...when finding out Osama bin Laden was dead, you were happy, and then felt horrible you were happy someone died.

you enjoyed laying in bed at night as a child fantasizing about having a store where everything was free so everyone would have their needs met.
you can see the good in every person.
you dread small talk.
You judge yourself for being intolerant of intolerant people!

you feel your plant is sad :( (and maybe she even had a couple of tears coming out of her leaves? :( ) when you move it to a new location in the house.

When you take and re-take the MBTI on Humanmetrics, listen to the guy on YOUTUBE talk about cognitive functions, you stalk PerC, typelogic, personalitycafe and other sites, denying your INFP-ness....then one day you relent and you realize...."Who else would spend all this time and energy on this MBTI stuff...except a type called the IDEALIST?"
- You have tried to figure out "who you are" since you can remember.
- You are normally reserved and quiet, until someone challenges your opinions on art, language, poetry, literature, symbollism, etc and you explode into conversation, to wit they say.."Where did that come from!?!?!"
- You can tell how a movie is going to end after about 10 minutes
- You want to be Hans Solo, but you know youre Luke Skywalker
- You take pride in the fact that CS Lewis, Tolkien and Kierkegaard are all INFPs
- Frodo is the Hero of the LoTR trilogy...hes an INFP too.. YESssssss!!!!
- A friend asks you to critique their paper and you are torn between being "nice" and telling them how many grammatical errors there are
- You hated being an INFP at first...then you fell into the groove and can breathe again.

Just now read this entire thread and I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes because all these years - and I'm in my 50s - I just thought I really was weird. I didn't know there were others JUST LIKE ME!

There were at least a dozen posts or more where I was reacting with a, "YES! That's how I feel!"

:)

So happy right now.

You insist that you can find Gillian Welch singing an undeniably happy song...and you do!
You sway with the trees while your dog takes a poop.
You understand the intent of a bird's vocalizations better than that of your boss's.
You find beauty in even the harshest of circumstances.
You find meaning in beauty.
Yours is an old soul.
Your presence is a comfort to others.

You take a typology test and it says "You're INFP".

when you're lonely often
when you can read for 4 hours without moving
when you don't have any real friends until late middle school
when you are intimidated when talking on the phone
when whenever you talk about a specific person, the person with whom you're conversing thinks you have a crush on the person you're talking about

When u stair at the geology and still picture of earth around amd ur thinking what process.made.this and how far.does that mountain go ? Why is this huge bolder here ? What created this.

When ur rushed to an unexpected event without.notice u nearly think of every way to get out of it.self Conscious about ur wardrobe so u dress.simple.

U look up prophecys, ancient religions and cultures and philosophy for fun.

U dream up scenarios HOURLY maybe more.
Of everything and anything .
U were respectful to teachers but maybe didn't achieve good grades. Payed attention in school but didnt.do hw.


Ur heart is on adrenaline overdrive if u stand up for urself in a strong Manor

U cry when u make.strong.eyecontact and have to talk.about your own pain.

This is my life! Ugh what clever person decided we ALL have to get through chemistry to even gain entry to university! I've been stuck in this rut for years now! :roll:

Sorry, don't really have anything to add, but it's a very good, interesting list!

When you fly, instead of sleeping you take hundreds of cloud photos/videos. It's just majestic.
When you listen to a music, you create a music video related to that song inside your head.

Is it just me? I'm always the last one to be ready to leave...not because I'm fussing over my appearance. I't's just, I don't know, my mom used to say I dawdled. For instance, when choir practice is over, and everyone is gathering up their stuff to leave, I'm always one of the last few to be in my coat and ready to go. This amazes me. I'm the last one out of the classroom, the gym locker room, the last one in the car, no matter what the activity is or the company I'm with, or where we're going.

I think it's an FP thing, where you don't focus on being punctual and orderly, just doing what your heart brings you to do. I always tend to get dressed two minutes directly before going somewhere.
