myers

Michael Myers is my favorite horror figure, and the very first of the Halloween movies will forever be my favorite. This is because there are no stupid teenagers going out into the woods or blatantly disobeying rules, no, it is more realistic than that. It is an unsuspecting babysitter in a suburban area, a seemingly innocent town. There is no creepy setting, it is exactly the kind of place where we all live. He brings fear to an innocent place. He won’t chase his victims, no no, but he always gets them in good time. Just when you think you’re getting ahead, he will prove you wrong. Kick his knife away, he will just crush your head. He can be his own weapon. Raw, unprecedented power. It is also terrifying to think that a murderer could be after you in the middle of the night, with tons of neighbors on all sides of you, and no one comes to your rescue. Think about it. A killer is in your house, walking briskly to try to make you into his next victim, and he even crosses the street, under a streetlight, following after you, screaming at the top of your lungs. But no one sees, no one hears. You are left on your own, while surrounded by people that are much safer than you at that moment. He doesn’t care if you are family, he is ruthless, strong, inescapable, and he is capable of finding you any where, in any place. He is a terrifying evil, all while being realistic at the same time. Mad respect. 

INFJs and conflict in relationships

The INFJ is as genuinely warm as they are complex. INFJs hold a special place in the heart of people who they are close to, who are able to see their special gifts and depth of caring. INFJs are concerned for people’s feelings, and try to be gentle to avoid hurting anyone. They are very sensitive to conflict, and cannot tolerate it very well. Situations which are charged with conflict may drive the normally peaceful INFJ into a state of agitation or charged anger. They may tend to internalize conflict into their bodies, and experience health problems when under a lot of stress. 

INFJs and people skills

INFJs have uncanny insight into people and situations. They get “feelings” about things and iNtuitively understand them. As an extreme example, some INFJs report experiences of a psychic nature, such as getting strong feelings about there being a problem with a loved one, and discovering later that they were in a car accident. This is the sort of thing that other types may scorn and scoff at, and the INFJ themselves does not really understand their iNtuition at a level which can be verbalized. Consequently, most INFJs are protective of their inner selves, sharing only what they choose to share when they choose to share it. They are deep, complex individuals, who are quite private and typically difficult to understand. INFJs hold back part of themselves, and can be secretive.

INFPs in relationships

INFPs present a calm, pleasant face to the world. They appear to be tranquil and peaceful to others, with simple desires. In fact, the INFP internally feels his or her life intensely. In the relationship arena, this causes them to have a very deep capacity for love and caring which is not frequently found with such intensity in the other types. The INFP does not devote their intense feelings towards just anyone, and are relatively reserved about expressing their inner- most feelings. They reserve their deepest love and caring for a select few who are closest to them. INFPs are generally laid-back, supportive and nurturing in their close relationships. With Introverted Feeling dominating their personality, they’re very sensitive and in-tune with people’s feelings, and feel genuine concern and caring for others. Slow to trust others and cautious in the beginning of a relationship, an INFP will be fiercely loyal once they are committed. With their strong inner core of values, they are intense individuals who value depth & authenticity in their relationships, and hold those who understand and accept the INFP’s perspectives in especially high regard. INFPs are usually adaptable and congenial, unless one of their ruling principles has been violated, in which case they stop adapting and become staunch defenders of their values. They will be uncharacteristically harsh and rigid in such a situation.
