Political Beliefs for INFP

Post by Randomosity » Fri Nov 23, 2012 5:44 am

I was curious.... is there a link between personality types and political beliefs? I am a liberal myself, but welcome all opinions. Is there any specific political belief that is common to INFPs, or Idealist Healers as they're sometimes known? Feel free to post your personal neliefs on here, but please do not resort to name calling or saying negative things about any group. Thanks!

Liberal here, but feeling very weary of US politics in general. Seems both sides are bought and paid for, plenty of perversion and corruption. Sad, lacking human caring, with avarice abounding.

Liberal. I don't like that other people would try to say who can love who nor do I like it when people say science is evil. Basically, I just think people should be able to do anything they want unless something they want to do would negatively effect the life of someone else. I also think that people shouldn't need the government to tell them to help other people because they should just want to help other people themselves.

Liberal, but not in the traditional way. I am a democratic meritocrat. Although I suppose this post belongs more within the philosophy thread, my philosophies on society deals primarily with politics.

The logic behind a meritocracy is thus: If you work to earn benefits, then you become entitled to them. If you do not earn your benefits (should you be able), you do not share in the bounty—you might say it's a "Little Red Hen" mentality. Suppose you have a public transportation system, and an individual, let's just call him Andy. Suppose Andy chooses not to pay taxes for his county's bus line. Andy is then permitted to receive a certain limited number of bus passes (because life is crazy and unpredictable, taxes are slightly elevated for everyone to cover these incidents, and for another reason mentioned later) for that year. Taxes are also elevated so that society can be reflexive easier. Suppose as interest in a cleaner environment becomes popular, existing drafts of laws to construct public mass transit lines become popular the ballots. The role of democracy is critical, as societies within this system (suppose certain regions have different beliefs, interests, and needs) can vote on municipal, provincial, regional, and national levels. In this way as well, it promotes the idea that the people have more power in the progression of their communities.
You all are beautiful and wonderful people. God bless you all!

Progressively liberal but I don't vote. No interest in politics.

I am a Leftist. Possibly a Socialist. But the term Socialist is so confusing in itself that you'll be more confused after reading about it for months than just having a general opinion or idea on the ideology. However, Communist I am not though. Even though it hasn't been tried as a true ideology on a state level I still think a stateless society is a recipe for absolute disaster. Its a form a anarchism - another ideology which would not work.

I think in America most Liberals are afraid to say they are a Leftist as they are so anti-left when in Britain it's a lot more acceptable to say you are a Socialist - whatever the hell that means nowadays. Clinton wouldn't even be a Liberal in Britain. She would be a Conservative. Our tory prime minister even said she would vote along the same lines as Clinton so thats all you need to know.

The only moment of life a leftist knows is the one right before it's all over.

Unless you live in Scandinavia...Social Democracy is my kind of Leftism and it exists right there. Not a bad bunch of people either.

Britain has an NHS which has been completely Socialist and still survives from the late 1940s. Some things are just better ran by the state and health, postal services, water and energy are just a few of them. I don't advocate a complete Socialist system. You can't do it anyway.

A vanishing race. Great plan. Meant well. Excellent epitaph.

Well the Scands are still pretty Social Democratic. The German state is gradually running more and more things. The idea may be dead in Americas dog eat dog World, but it isn't dead here. The young generation are swinging to the left in Europe. Britain especially.

There are also right wing populists springing up in Europe.

I'm not entirely sold to any particular political belief. I can agree or find logic in several differing arguements and stances. More important to me is congruency and the part where there actually exist a plan behind the promises. Speaking in general there are several paths that lead forward and towards development. But if a democracy is supposed to work there must be a strong protection around freedom of speech and opinion. And the extent of hypocrisy needs to be recognised. ...the feeling of slowly being smothered by peoples fear of what's outside the box, it's getting scary in this silent land of like-behavioured. I do appreciate the lack of noice though ;)

If you like it when there's a plan behind the promises do you like Trump? :D

Often, the unplanned things turn out better than those that are planned.

😄 ok you got me, of course i have personal preferences (those values...) so no - Trump is not a favourite though fascinating. I was expressing something from a thought of disbelief where politics in this country have different labels but doesn't really differentiate and therefore it doesn't matter the choice from that point of view. But of course i should have answered from ideology and not percieved "facts" (and the bitterness of sleepdepravation). That would've made more sense and actually serve a purpose in the particular question... I will get back to this.

I agree that control is overrated sometimes and severely often an illusion, but Rhinehart and politics? Naaaa 😊
