A Blog Post Written On Different Days

I thought I might write a small ramble today, just to catch up with all of you, my readers, and have a little heart-to-heart chat. Let’s see. What’s new with me. Nothing much, really. I’ve been spending my days writing novels and short stories, and the rest of the time studying to be a librarian—I think I might as well finish my course, before I start another in a more writing-related disciple, since I am so close to completing it.

The Types Of Toxic People INFPs Face

pretty

1. Narcissists who prey on our kind and unassuming natures.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with narcissists, let me boil down who they are: extremely selfish people. Selfish to the point of pathological. They are braggarts, love admirers and are constantly on the look-out for something known as “narcisstic supply”, which is attention or adoration that feeds his or her ego. Continue reading

A Little Ramble

I really like the idea of two people who are very different falling in love. I think it appeals to my INFP’s sense of romanticism—individuals from widely different backgrounds, drawn together by fate and circumstance, who start up a whirlwind romance.

Whenever I try to write about it, however, it usually does not go down well. For some reason, I can never make the characters properly mesh, and I think that is because the characters I portray are usually too different to actually start a real relationship together. Continue reading

INFPs Are Not Stupid

To say INFPs are complex creatures would be an understatement. On the outside we might seem ditzy and strange but on the inside we can come up with ideas or understand things in a way no-one else can. Some INFPs have no bounds when it comes to their creativity and go on to create wonderful works of art and fiction that astound the world. Others are esteemed psychologists whose intuition has placed them in good stead over the course of their careers or musical composers with an intuitive grasp of tunes and lyrics. Continue reading

Yet Another INFP Ramble

I thought of a new fear recently: the fear of dying feeling as though life has gone by too fast. That terrifies me. I want to live a full and fulfilled life and feel as though I have put my time to good use and achieved my dreams and goals by the end of it. To feel as though I didn’t achieve what I wanted to achieve and might have wasted my time, to not have that feeling that everything is good and alright if I die, to not have said and done the things I wanted to say and do…that terrifies me to no end.

A Ramble On Emptiness and Writing

fear

I get really sad sometimes. Mostly, it’s because life feels empty occasionally. There are the evenings where nothing feels right, dawns where the whole day stretches before you like a black parade, afternoons where your heart sinks because you’re lonely and not a soul in the world could heal your sense of loneliness.

A Depressed Ramble After Waking Up From A Nap

sad

I just woke up from a nap. And I’m depressed.

After this week’s worth of work, from interviews to writing schedules, to studying for my course, I have been burning flat-out non-stop, so when the weekend rolled around, I decided to give myself the opportunity to vegetate for once. My friend wanted to see a movie, so I went (I’m lucky to have a friend as an INFP, because INFPs have a difficult time making friends and finding people they click with), and then when I came back home, at around four in the afternoon, I think, I crawled into bed for some shut-eye. Continue reading

An INFP’s Perspective on Friendship

Sometimes, as an INFP, I wish friendships were as scintillating and wonderful as they are in my imagination. Idealistic and naïve, I sometimes envision myself owning a home where I can invite my friends to hang out and have a good – no, not just good, a marvelous – time. We drink champagne and watch comedy movies, snacking on popcorn and hors d’oeuvres, and talk about men and our careers. Continue reading

How This INFP Deals With Suffering In The World

sad.jpg
Honestly? I try to ignore it.

I block it out. I stop it from entering my consciousness. I make a conscious effort to barricade my mind against thoughts of other people’s suffering.

Now, it’s not what you think. As an INFP, or should I say, especially as an INFP, I am just as kind-hearted and loving as the next person, perhaps even more so. Continue reading

Spilling the Tea: Drama from this INFP’s Life

drama.jpg

I wish I had some drama happening in my life right now, so I could write a blog post about it, but, unfortunately, my life is about as interesting as a teacup at the moment. I do have two interviews lined up this week, so that will be rather exciting, and I’ll keep you all posted on how it goes. Maybe I’ll even write a post about “Interview Tips For INFPs” or something like that, inspired by my experience with two interviews in the one week.
