NTs in High School

INTJ: The kid who is at the top of the class even though they don’t seem to work nearly as hard as the other people up there. They are an extreme nerd, but you wouldn’t guess it by just looking at them. Are (or at least seem) extremely confident and put-together, which, along with their unequivocal dislike of most people, makes other people who don’t know them well nervous around them.

INTP: The kid who has straight A’s even though they haven’t picked up the text book since they brought it home. Obviously a nerd and/or geek. They hardly talk to anyone, except to the teacher in order to pose theoretical questions that don’t have a solid answer. Their backpack is more like an endless collection of miscellaneous junk.

ENTJ: The kid who is the president of 4 different clubs and captain of a sport, whether or not they actually tried to obtain these positions. May or may not be at the top of the class, but everyone is convinced that they are. They slightly scare everyone else.

ENTP: The kid who never pays attention or does any work, yet is always on the honor roll. They know and talk to literally everyone and teachers love them. They are the supreme random trivia champions. They would crush everyone on the debate club if they joined, but that would mean researching a specific topic for too long which is too much effort and not enough pay off.

Your INFP ‘Companion’ unit User Guide and Manual

This manual sanctioned by and concept credit to @intpboard ;)

CONGRATULATIONS! Somehow you have found a wandering and bewildered INFP. Evidently they have offered you this manual after hearing you support Sherlock and their OTP. Take a moment to feel good about yourself, this is an important step in your relationship.

Your INFP companion will come with the following accessories:
Three (3) diaries (CAUTION: Perusal unadvised. Touch these at your own risk)
Three (3) everyday outfits
Two (2) indie outfits
Two (2) Tumblr blogs
One (1) laptop
One (1) mobile device
One (1) pair of custom-built earphones
One (1) unique tea mug
One (1) cat

Software:
You INFP comes programmed with the following traits:
Fi: Your INFP is a special snowflake. They will have invisible feels, but keep an eye out for the cute smile. And they probably really do Know that feeling.
Ne: Your INFP is weird and likes ambiguous things. May meme occasionally.
Si: Your INFP likes to store up good memories and database feelings like buried treasure for that novel they’re writing.
Te: Although it is their inferior function, your INFP can be executive and use cold hard logic to be remarkably strong and creative. They may need help adapting to the harsh outside world. May secretly hate everything (including themselves) if unhealthy.

Getting Started:
To set up your INFP companion:
1. Fill mug with tea and place INFP in close proximity of cat and a sunset and leave to bask until heart is pleasantly warm.
2. Sync with Tumblr (this should happen automatically through a deep emotional connection inherent in all INFPs, much like Bluetooth).
3. Allow thirty (30) minutes of continuous data exchange.
4. Sit beside them for thirty (30) minutes in silence as Human Presence Conditioning.
5. Get up. If your INFP moves to follow, they have successfully activated and synced with you. If not, repeat Step 4 with the cat.

Modes:
Quiet (default) - quiet cinnamon roll. May stare off into space, usually either very sweet or very sarcastic, depending on your model. May be a socially awkward if brand new. Be careful not to forget about or leave behind your INFP when it is in this mode.
Talkative - frequent activation of this mode usually correlates with quick Human Presence Conditioning. Explore topics until you find which ones activate this mode, you may be surprised.
Feels - may need unusual amount of solitude with all accessories in easy access. Be receptive of feels if expressed, to avoid software crashing.
Crazy/happy - have fun, roll with it, but beware of hazard unwariness.
Unhealthy/shadow (locked) - only activated under extreme stress. May burn everything in its path, or burn self in solitude.

Relationships with other units:
NFs:
Your INFP’s homey home. May feel threatened or devalued by INFJ units due to social constructs, but usually end up getting along.
SPs: Interesting territory for your INFP. May find Se overwhelming, but generally find them intriguing, perhaps from a distance.
NTs: May or may not get along, if they do, have very interesting discussions, good for software conditioning. May be cut by perceived coldness if new.
SJs: Can be very fun. INFP gets to feel like an educator in Ne, and may learn from high Si if healthy. Some of these usually necessary for grounding your INFP during lightning storms.

Feeding:
Your INFP may be constantly snacking. A ‘regular’ diet is not strictly necessary, but sneak some vitamins into their packet and fetish foods occasionally.

Grooming:
Some INFP units require more grooming than others. If your INFP excessively self-grooms, it is probably not just a phase (see Bjork). You have little to no control over this.

Sleeping:
Your INFP companion unit runs the risk of becoming nocturnal. Discover the cause for this - usually either angst or creativity. If the former, see Troubleshooting (p. 9). If the latter, arrange bedside outlets - NOT tumblr.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Why does my INFP procrastinate so much?
Unlike INTPs, INFP units have Te software, however it is in its beta version upon unit activation and the full version can be installed after some conditioning. Engaging them in tasks they have a personal investment in and using Divide and Conquer applications may aide effectiveness.

Why is my INFP so sensitive to criticism/so defensive/so salty?
See above question (Te software). INFP units also have an Identity Crisis application that is hosted by Fi, activated by ‘negative’ external stimulus and executed by Te. With the full version of Te, this application can lead to powerful self-transformation. Sensitivity should decrease with conditioning, however positive affirmation will help stabilize application launch.

Help! My INFP unit is stuck in Unhealthy / Shadow mode!
There are three main manifestations of unhealthy mode. If in shadow functions, an ENFJ may be helpful. If in the grip of Te, they may need help coming to terms with reality. Often fire and brimstone anger and ‘just do it’ mentality can help pull your INFP out of apathy long enough to grow healthier. If in an Fi-Si loop, thrust you INFP into a new situation, or several. In any case, getting your INFP to communicate their problems to other units (other NFs are usually best) will be highly beneficial, although your INFP’s Fi may resist initially.

Again, CONGRATULATIONS on acquiring your new INFP unit! Have fun!

How to turn the functions blue

Ni - Take away its direction.
Ni users require something to aim for; a goal to call their own, to strive for. Without that, they become listless and apathetic. Those dominant in this function may seek very temporary “goals” that satisfy their physical desires temporarily, but which they ultimately find hollow.

Ne - Overwhelm it.
Ne users like to have the complete picture before them prior to setting out to accomplish it, much the way one might consult the box while assembling a jigsaw puzzle. But grandiose dreams require several interlocking elements in order to be fulfilled. If the Ne user attempts to assemble all the pieces simultaneously, or finds that there are more pieces to the puzzle than initially thought, they can easily become overwhelmed, causing them to lose focus, stress out, and ultimately give up.

Si - Take away its GPS.
Si users rely heavily on past precedent to know how to proceed. They find comfort in established patterns, and they greatly value the lessons of history. New experiences, where they have nothing on which to fall back, are intimidating. But what depresses Si users is trying every tool in their box and finding that none of them work, when they used to work fine before. Without a place to step back and reevaluate their progress, Si users get frustrated to the point of giving up, retreating to the last “save point” they recognize and sitting there in perpetuity.

Se - Remove its ability to interact with its world.
Se users love physical activity and anything that engages two or more senses. Se-doms in particular are usually found in performing arts, sports, manual labor, or other jobs that require a lot of hands-on activity. For Se users, the quickest route to the blues is to remove one of their senses or physically handicap them in another way. If they can’t engage their environment, they get quite depressed.

Fi - Show it that the world doesn’t care.
Fi users are idealists. They believe strongly in moral absolutes, and they know exactly what their “perfect” world looks like. And they do everything in their power to demonstrate their ideals to the world. What gets them down is a sense of futility; that the world will, at best, ignore the work they are doing on its behalf, or, at worst, destroy that work. Reality is not kind to Fi users, and this fact can be very difficult to overcome.

Fe - Show it that you don’t care.
Fe users absorb the emotions of others. This is both the cause of their nurturing tendencies, and the ultimate payoff. Positive emotions given off by people helped by Fe users are channeled into further efforts to continually effect those emotions. For this reason, apathy is by far the greatest poison to Fe. Apathy in others is picked up by Fe users, causing them to feel unappreciated and that their work is for naught. And soon they themselves become apathetic and depressed.

Ti - Call it trivial.
Ti is commonly associated with geek culture, because this function places great value on the what and the how of all things. Thus it is analytical, gleaning as much practical knowledge as it can, and intellectual pursuits are ideal for this. Belittling the pursuits and interests of Ti users is a good way to depress them, as it makes them feel their contributions are useless, and therefore they are as well. They may fail to show outwardly that they have been hurt, but if they seem to lose interest in the pursuit of “random” knowledge, it may be that they have lost sight of their own worth.

Te - Disrespect it.
The easiest way to make anyone angry is to show them blatant disrespect, but the easiest way to downright depress Te users is to subtly disrespect them over long periods of time. Te users are natural leaders, practical and efficient. But if they are trying to lead, only to look back and find that no one is following, they can slip into a funk, believing that their efforts are unwanted. Or if they are trying to accomplish some goal, only to have it blow up in their face, they can be left feeling that their efforts will never be rewarded. Te users who fail in their ambitions or in leadership can suffer from the blues and have a hard time climbing out of their pit without help.

Things I´ve noticed about the two types that share the dominant function:

ESTJ & ENTJ: Have a chaos threshold

ISTP & INTP: Lowkey hate their own overconfidence when it comes to opinions

ENFP & ENTP: Ashamed of their own arbitrariness

INTJ & INFJ: A part of them remains forever insecure 

ENFJ & ESFJ: Brilliant in sales… and you thought Te was the capitalistic genius

INFP & ISFP: Once they get comfortable, all of their demons come out of hiding

ESFP & ESTP: Stretch social norms to the max

ISTJ & ISFJ: Can´t stand not being able to keep up during conversation

My (INFP) personal experiences with INFJs

I don’t know why everyone keeps repeating that myth about INFJs being the rarest type, because I know more INFJs than should exist according to that and I know other people who know their share of INFJs.

In my life, I have personally met/talked to 20 INFJs (and I’m pretty sure I forgot a couple).

I don’t think I have as much experience with any other type, and especially in the last month I had very close contact, since there were five INFJs living at the animal sanctuary that I volunteered in. So naturally, my Ne-Si doing what it does (observe and compare!), I feel the need to write down my observations and my personal reactions.:)

Important: This is ONLY about my personal experience and subjective perception/opinion. I’m not making any statements about INFJs in general, only about those that I’ve met. Note beforehand that a lot of this is me rubbing elbows with said INFJs, i.e. there’s a lot that I didn’t like about them. So don’t read if that bothers you. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with INFJs or the INFJs I met, just that I had problems with them - I know that it’s my personal thing. I’m making this post in order to organise my reflections and share my experience, because I think it’s very interesting considering mbti functions. But again, this is only about how the INFJs I met used their functions and about their characters, so everything is individual and not general. Keep this in mind while reading! Thank you!:)

Random Izaya as INFJ Thoughts

- Izaya as a twisted INFJ who doesn’t know how to express his feelings properly because of his isolated upbringing 

- Izaya’s goal in life is to love humanity. Orihara Izaya had only one goal in his life - to love humans. In his own way, which nobody other than himself would understand. Ni-Fe. Izaya’s goal could be his Ni and his love for humans his Fe. Ni is a subjective, introverted function, and thus Izaya’s life goal is something ‘nobody other than himself would understand’.

- Izaya seems like an extrovert because of his Extroverted Feeling (Fe) which lets him get along with people if he wants to and leads him to seek social interaction

- Izaya has a fragile heart. “He might seem cold-blooded, but he’s more human and his heart more brittle than anyone else. So much so that if you filled it with human love or betrayal, it’d break easily. Which is why, I think, he chose from the start to avoid it all, to love humanity.” His Fe gives him his sensitivity to human love or betrayal. His extroverted feeling with his love for humans which is unrequited. Izaya knows this because he knows himself, and chose to avoid it all, in loving humanity as a whole

- Izaya uses and relies on his logic (Ti), but he is driven by his feelings  “I don’t know about that. I honestly can’t even read my next move.In the end, what I want to see is humans other than myself. How they react in the situation that cannot be expected, to observe that is the biggest motive of my life. In order to achieve that, I will both cause trouble and help as much as I can.” Izaya is not being logical in his goal. He wants to see, because his biggest motive (Ni) is to observe humans’ reactions (Fe). And he will do whatever it takes to see that

- Izaya loves humans. He was a human himself, yet he loved the beings called “humans’”. One could interpret it as a grandiose case of narcissism, but he never included himself in the “humans” he loved. To put it in more exact words, he was deeply in love with “others”. Fe is a human, people-centered cognitive function. Fe users are people-centered, and Izaya loves humans more than anyone else. There is no logic in his love for humans

- Izaya has been described by many characters (Shinra, Kadota, Mikage) to be actually very human, and one of the things that make humans, human, is their feelings

- Izaya envies Mikado. “Although even then you appeared to have a normal life while having a distorted air. Indeed I envy you. That is something I couldn’t do when I was in high school.” Izaya muttered with deep emotion. Mikado was able to have a normal life even with his twisted feelings about his own creation (Fi). Izaya might have wanted to live a normal life and be a normal human (Fe), blending in with society, but was unable to do so because of his upbringing

- Mikado relies on Izaya, believing Izaya is a good person. Mikado is likely INFP. Izaya and Mikado are similar, both having twisted feelings, appearing normal on the outside at first. Izaya could be an NF like him

- Shinra and Kadota’s words about Izaya -  He loves, loves, loves, loves humans, so he just wants to see. The various expressions humans make. He always said since high school he liked the limitless potential of humans. Expressions would require paying attention to people’s feelings (Fe) and wanting to see them whatever they are could be a twisted sort of Fe. Fe users are said to be concerned with taking care of people’s feelings, twisted Fe could be wanting to know people’s feelings whatever they are to know the way to (twistedly) take care of them (putting them in situations which can evoke more of those feelings or overcome them) ‘Limitless potential’ is indicative of Ni - future oriented Ni-Fe: Seeing from people’s expressions (Fe) what other expressions and reactions they could show in future situations to harness their human potential (Ni)

- Izaya likes the limitless potential of humans. Typical INFJ character is helping people, not taking care of themselves, etc. Helping people. Perhaps Izaya’s dealings with humans is his twisted way to harness their potential “If you really want to leave normality—you have no choice but to keep evolving. It doesn’t matter if you want to rise higher or if you want to sink lower, it’ll be the same.”

- INFJ are also said to neglect themselves in their focus on people. Izaya neglects his safety in his information brokering job for his love of humans, and his fights with Shizuo. Izaya also never included himself in the humans he loved’

- Towards the person who is his only friend, Izaya is worried about how Shinra will feel towards him  ‘He’ll probably be mad at me if he finds out that I went to meet Celty taking the head with me.‘ His attention is on Shinra’s feelings (Fe) and not his own (Fi). He is so overwhelmed by Shinra’s imagined anger that he tries to convince himself that there is nothing to be afraid of, and punches the telephone pole in his frustration

- Sozoro calls Izaya a ‘twisted philanthropist’ (For that man named Izaya Orihara, a twisted philanthropist, to love the whole human race equally.) He claims Izaya uses the ‘art of coaxing’, which extroverted feeling (Fe) towards people’s emotions would be helpful with. Surely that man would then become ‘evil.’ To only obtain that person, he would be fine with destroying the world, killing people, or to make a mess of society. Sozoro claims if Izaya were to ‘truly love one person’, he would do anything for his goal to obtain that person (Ni), implying he would be driven by his feelings towards that person (Fe)

- Izaya is envious of Shinra. Shinra is likely INFJ (or at least an Fe user).  Remembering the envy and sense of defeat he had felt back then, he realized that Kishitani Shinra was probably more of a rival than a friend to him. In retrospect Shinra, who lived confidently above this world, did invoke some jealousy in him. Shinra is an INFJ (Or Fe user like an ENFJ) who has no interest in humans and is completely unaffected by humanity. In that sense, he is Izaya’s ‘rival’ but Shinra doesn’t even see humans because he fell in love with Celty (all his Fe is directed towards her) and so Izaya felt defeated by him

- Izaya has been often typed as ENTP or INTJ. ENTP has cognitive functions of Fe and Ti. INTJ has cognitive functions of Ni and Se. INFJ has cognitive functions of Ni, Fe, Ti, Se. Perhaps the answer lies in between 

- Novel Izaya’s trademark scene is when he was left out of hotpot (and the city’s events in Volume 4, which he grumbled about) The man who had been completely left out of the incidents that happened this time laughed as if it was his way of revenge. He was bitter and jealous about it and acted on his feelings 

- Izaya was jealous of the participants in the chatroom who were enjoying their peaceful everyday lives (and left him out of hotpot). He wanted to be included (Fe) but his feelings extroverted towards his humans were not returned

- Izaya thinks to himself, Peaceful everyday life is something I decided I could do without long ago. It seems despite all his twistedness, he still retains some desire to live a peaceful everyday life with the humans he loves. Though it’s far from necessary for me, I do understand why it’s desirable for most people. He is aware of people’s feelings (Fe) towards wanting to live a peaceful everyday life and thinks about it when he is jealous of the people in the chatroom living their peaceful everyday lives, perhaps feeling some desire to live a peaceful everyday life like them 

- Izaya felt lonelier than usual when everyone was having hotpot without him

  • ISFP: I feel terrible… Does my head feel hot?
  • ENTP: * puts hand on ISFP’s forehead* Holy sh- I think you could cook an egg on that!
  • ISFP: So I am sick…
  • ENTP: Wanna try it?
  • ISFP: What?
  • ENTP: Cooking eggs. Let’s try it.
  • ISFP: Shouldn’t you be asking me if I’m okay or something???
  • ENTP: Man, If this works I’m never using a fry pan again.
  • ISFP: What about when I get better?
  • ENTP: I’ll just inject you with more diseases.
  • ISFP: Why don’t you just use a fry pan??? WHY???
  • ENTP: Umm, that costs money. This is easy and free. #LifeHack
  • ISFP: I think a fry pan would be far easier to use than a forehea-
  • ENTP: EASY AND FREE
An INTJ’s life - What I do on the days I do nothing

I’ve always been curious to know what people do when they have no official schedule to attend, I think it really gives the idea of what kind of people they are. So here’s the list of what I usually do on those “lazy” (more or less) days on which I don’t even want to meet with my friends. 

  • Sleeping. That’s right. On busy days I keep a rigid sleeping schedule (I try to never lack sleep because that makes me work less efficiently) so whenever I have a free day I make sure I take an our for myself to sleep a bit or just lay on the bed, if I prefer. But I don’t oversleep, not even on vacation, because I hate the headache and feeling drowsy. 
  • Excercising. I’ve decided that I want to be a more active person so recently I’ve been exercising every day. 
  • Getting new ideas, which for me it means reading articles and magazines. I’m into fashion, so I might read articles on Elle (sometimes they make me discover new inspiring people) and look at the clothes. Super relaxing. I’d like to start reading some scientific magazine too, so if you have any suggestion let me know.
  • Drawing. I love art, so that’s what I do when I’m free. If I really want to relax, I’ll copy from a reference or from reality (which, of the two, is actually what I like to do most).
  • Answering asks on Tumblr or writing long posts. While I take notes of the ideas for the short posts as soon as they come during the day, I need more time to answer asks, so I wait until I have free time. That’s why it always takes long, sorry! But I really like writing so it’s a pleasure for me - that’s why it is a perfect activity for a low key day. 
  • Reading, but not as much as you might think. I like reading, and I’ve have periods of my life when that was the main thing I did but as I grew up I started liking many more things and my time shrank. I generally read novels when I’m bored of real life, articles on the internet about my current obsession almost every day (but for a longer time when I have nothing to do). 
  • Catching up on TV shows. Yes, I’m human too.
  • Watching my favorite movies again or re-reading my favorite books, among of which there’s “The Great Gatsby” and “The Odyssey”. I read somewhere that watching our favorite movies over and over again, because of of the story’s predictability, relaxes us and makes us feel safe for a while in a world unpredictable and ever-changing. That’s true.
