The Dark Side of INFP
A blog for all things INFP. You’re a special snowflake that cannot be contained in a text post. What could you think of that’s positive about this personality type?
Be careful about dating an INFP if you are a person who loves doing things for show, competing with people, or getting/doing the “best” things for the sake of it. We’re best for people who love to look at the big picture and try to find a way to do something that feels meaningful every day.
Quiet, empathetic dreamers with huge hearts, INFJs are one of the rarest personality types, which naturally, makes them quite odd. Here are 14 common romantic problems INFJs deal with in their lives. INFJs get frustrated when they make an attempt to connect with someone and the person fails to share their enthusiasm. This leads them to wonder why they even bothered at all and makes them more hesitant to reveal other things about themselves in the future.
They want to believe in the best in their partner even if it comes at a cost to their well being. They obviously have their share of faults too, but INFJs are one of the least likely personality types to give up on their partner. They can falter to their weaknesses if they get into a relationship with the wrong person. INFJs are very easily affected by the energy and environment around them.
What INFPs Appreciate. Romantically.
Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by columnist Maureen Dowd of The New York Times  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian.
Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date. Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going.
If you explain beautifully, a woman does not look to see whether you are handsome or not — but listens more, so you can win her heart. That is why I advise our boys to read stories and watch movies more and to learn more beautiful phrases to tell girls.
Mar 27, · 31 thoughts on “ The INFP: Sex, Dating, and Love ” Melanie says: May 4, at pm We’ve worked through a couple of minor issues and it’s been great. We have amazing communication. I know he takes awhile to warm up. I’m an ENTJ and have been dating an INFP for 4 months and she’s an anomaly to me. Very distant.
I think what helps me be good at my job is the fact that I have a perfectionist mindset and that drives me to become more detailed than I would naturally be. Though my job does allow me to be creative at times as I also am in charge of user interface design, so I believe that gives me just enough of a fix to balance out my work life. My life outside of work, is basically all about people.
From time to time, I try to take up different hobbies, but I find the one I am most consistent at is spending time with people over a coffee, or some dinner, just hearing about what they are going through. First off is dealing with conflict. I extremely dislike conflict, and I know, I know, most people do not, but I feel as if I have a special dislike for conflict. I hardly am ever honest about if something somebody says to me is offensive. Second thing I need to work on, is letting go.
I cannot tell you how many friends that I have that do not care to talk to me, or at least have lost interest in me but I still call them and leave them a voice mail every few months just to see how they are doing. They may not even respond to several of my voicemails in a row, but I will keep leaving them voice mails. One last thought about my day to day life.
To me life is all about the possibilities and the potential of what people and things can be. I picture my life and the lives of those around me as the most exciting story ever!
Stuck in a bog whence naught May catapult me, Come from the grave, long-sought, Come and insult me! Why don’t you speak? Something must have happened. And running up after me, she caught me as I was again trying to force open the door. Luke Skywalker in Star Wars depicts this conflict in his struggle between the two sides of “The Force.
Nov 07, · This is a discussion on INFP dating INFP within the INFP Forum – The Idealists forums, part of the NF’s Temperament Forum- The Dreamers category; Hi! I am new to posting but have browsed through this forum before. I am looking for some stories or.
Some may feel like their silent nature and shyness might limit their abilities while others will feel like their active and deep minds might be a very strong tool that might propel them to success especially if put into good use. Slowly, over the last 2 decades, the entrepreneurship landscape has started to change. Introverts are gaining on extroverts, making landslide impacts as successful entrepreneurs.
This I perhaps largely unnoticed by many people, most steeped in the belief that extroversion is analogous to leadership. However, the kind of deeply thought clever ideas being spewed out in the 21st century, can only be achieved by those whose innate ability to quietly deep-think has been attacked and cut down by their gregarious extroverted opposites. INFPs in particular, have probably been underdogs in this arena for too long.
These introverted-feeling individuals are less likely than any other introverted type to loudly claim victory for successful achievements.
I hate my life and feel hopeless
Dating for the INFJ can be especially challenging. Not because they are tough to get along with. INFJs have arguably the greatest capacity of all the types for depth, love, soulfulness, empathy, and have a strong desire to share their rich inner lives with their significant other.
My friend is actually dating a female INFP. She is a pretty tough nut to crack. She sometimes struggles communicating important issues or value related things with him.
Contact Author The introverted intuitive feeler judger is one of the rarest personalities of all. Myers Briggs raises this personality up like a humanitarian with prophetic powers. Many Myers Brigg studies ask the question, why are there not more of them when we need them? The shoes are big to fill for the INFJ. Sometimes it can be the most beautiful delicate flower in a dryer than dry desert. Other times, it is the most fierce voice in the room, uncontrollably honest, uncontrollably bent on its intuition to tell people where they fall short.
As the peacemaker-kings of the world, the INFJ can often be misunderstood. Weird because there is a short supply of them.
Dating by Personality Type
Some may not think masculine energy can be intense or even scary at times. Whilst Feminism has done some great things for us, it has also made women quite domineering with a tendency to castrate men with a single look. It destroys the virility and spirit in men. When I was in Law School, girls used to talk about how some powerful women had their man by the balls. Neither is the notion of gender differences. Yes, we are all people, but there exists in every one of us, a combination of two energies.
INFP may be starving emotionally, not feeling accepted and understood and ENTP may be starving intellectually without being mentally stimulated. In any other family relationship: ENTP will play parental/leading function in the relationship, taking care, protecting and providing for INFP.
Never short on imagination, INFPs dream of the perfect relationship, forming an image of this pedestalled ideal that is their soul mate, playing and replaying scenarios in their heads of how things will be. INFPs share a sincere belief in the idea of relationships — that two people can come together and make each other better and happier than they were alone, and they will take great efforts to show support and affection in order to make this ideal a reality.
INFPs take the time to understand those they care about, while at the same time helping them to learn, grow and change. Between their sensitivity and imagination, INFPs are prone to internalizing even objective statements and facts, reading into them themes and exaggerated consequences, sometimes responding as though these comments are metaphors designed to threaten the very foundations of their principles.
Naturally this is almost certainly an overreaction, and INFPs should practice what they preach, and focus on improving their ability to respond to criticism with calm objectivity, rather than irrational accusations and weaponized guilt. INFPs take their time in becoming physically intimate so that they can get to know their partners, using their creativity to understand their wants and needs, and adapt to them.
People with this personality type are generous in their affection, with a clear preference for putting the pleasure of their partners first — it is in knowing that their partners are satisfied that INFPs truly feel the most pleasure.
