INFP Blog - Thoughts on the INFP Personality Type from an INFP

Random INFP:


My name is Corin.  I’m an INFP.  After almost 40 years, I’m finally starting to get the hang of it.

Here’s the important stuff about me. I’ve been married for 15 years. I have two adopted girls from China who keep my life interesting. I work as web developer/C# programmer for large corporation since 2006. I’m also a decent web designer which is what I did full-time for 8 years before I moved to programming. Financially, I do reasonably well.

In 1996, I could barely turn on a computer. I went to college for a semester and never finished.

I write fiction. I’m a published poet. I was only published 4 times between 1993 and 1997 but only one of those lit journals had any real meaning to me because they had also published a poem by a poet I admire, Charles Bukowski. It was then that I proved to myself that I was a good poet. It was also then that I stopped writing and submitting poetry.

I discovered the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator at 19. I had moved out of my parents house and my sheltered life and had to learn to deal with other people. Being shy and quiet, I luckily found the MBTI to help me understand other people as well as myself.

I’ve been active on public forums about the INFP type since Friendster. After Friendster collapsed, I moved to to MySpace to GlobalChatter and now to Facebook’s INFP group and Personality Cafe. Basically, I’ve been listening to INFPs talk almost daily since 2003.

INFPs talk about the same thing, about how they world wasn’t set up for INFPs, about how no one quite understands them, about how lonely it is to be an INFP, about how things didn’t turn out they way they wanted.

I started this blog to talk about something different.
