What was wrong with the INFP profile in your eyes? I haven’t read it yet but I am slowly working my way through them.
Everything? xD ok not really but it falls into the same trap most INFP portraits do. INFP = shy,…
Hi guys. I was wondering how other INFPs dealt with anger, because I seem to have a bit of a problem with that particular emotion, I think. Either I dont’ feel it at all, or, on the very rare occasions when I am genuinely angry, it just sort of… sits there. Not doing anything and not really showing at all. Just wondering how it is for other people.
Anger is a very rare thing for me to feel; it usually doesn’t go beyond irritation and, if it does, I hold it down. For me, any negative emotion is like a neuron: it either fires (which is very rare), or it doesn’t. I’ve only gotten angry at a friend once in my life; it usually doesn’t go beyond a simmering irritation that I hold in, but with my only example of anger I would say that, for me, it doesn’t trickle out. It kind of… explodes. Again, like a neuron. My friends were being relentless and, after asking everyone to please stop, one person made the same comment everyone else had made. I ended up yelling at him, couldn’t help it. Everything just built up. I don’t like to show when I’m angry or otherwise upset, and with the exception of that one time, people drop the subject before I can’t take it anymore. Since I don’t need to deal with what bothered me, I usually leave it be. It’ll bother me again, sure, and after it happens over and over again I’ll either become desensitized to it or I’ll wait until I’m in a good mood and finally calmly deal with the stimulus.
Most of the time I write about what frustrated me, primarily here on tumblr since it’s easier and I don’t always have pen and paper at my disposal. I think that’s a small part of why I don’t directly express my negative feelings toward people. It’s mostly because I will do almost anything to avoid conflict. There are exceptions to my conflict avoidance, of course, but anger just isn’t one of them.(((Once again on my iPhone I can’t see who to credit this to but thank you so much for responding! Please let me know so I can link u -S ))))
If someone wrote a book about your life what would the title be?
To me, silence is very comfortable. Walking alone does not make me feel lonely and observing little things entertain me. I see life as complex but simple at the same time. It is a pity that a slow-paced and carefree life is something that I can only desire, not obtain.
