Simply not being a dick. Acting a little nicely to people, and consciously realising that they are beings with flaws and problems of their own. And generally providing entertainment/relief through art.

I'm usually able to give good advice, I've been described as down to earth more then a few times.

Bike instead of drive, whenever possible. 'Tis fun when motorists aren't nearly killing you.

Ditto, plus doing good deeds.
Life is a comedy to those who think and a tragedy to those who feel.

through kindness, and working on yourself.
change yourself, and you change the world. i change myself by simply being aware of the negative things i do and my flaws and working on fixing them.

I help people overcome their fears. I help them to become more accepting of themselves. I help them cry, or laugh, if they need that. I like to think that I can help people believe in themselves. I help people deal with wounds. I don't do this professionally, but... I would very much like to. It's very hard shifting tracks in Germany, though. Our society is not really built around the concept of career change.

This is something that I struggle with. I tried to do it in a professional capacity, as a social worker to be specific, but I found that my tendency to take on all of the world's problems + the difficulty I have with expressing my emotions didn't lead to a good combination. Plus, I found it to be very confining to work within an agency / the system.

So for now I'm thinking that art/academia are the way to go.

In Nanbudo Karate we said: Power Courage Conviction.

INFP tend to blend in, but they shouldn't fear putting power behind their convictions. For that one is courageous and challenges established tracks. But of course it is dangerous getting out of the comfort zone. Getting out of the comfort zone makes it bigger, then you can set an example to others and sharing your light.
