Functional Analysis Of The INFP
Based on Jung’s framework of mental functions-by Joe Butt

Introverted Feeling

INFPs live primarily in a rich inner world of introverted Feeling. Being inward-turning, the natural attraction is away from world and toward essence and ideal. This introversion of dominant Feeling, receiving its data from extraverted intuition, must be the source of the quixotic nature of these usually gentle beings. Feeling is caught in the approach avoidance bind between concern both for people and for All Creatures Great and Small, and a psycho-magnetic repulsion from the same. The “object,” be it Homo sapiens or a mere representation of an organism, is valued only to the degree that the object contains some measure of the inner Essence or greater Good. Doing a good deed, for example, may provide intrinsic satisfaction which is only secondary to the greater good of striking a blow against Man’s Inhumanity to Mankind.

Extraverted iNtuition

Extraverted intuition faces outward, greeting the world on behalf of Feeling. What the observer usually sees is creativity with implied good will. Intuition spawns this type’s philosophical bent and strengthens pattern perception. It combines as auxiliary with introverted Feeling and gives rise to unusual skill in both character development and fluency with language–a sound basis for the development of literary facility. If INTPs aspire to word mechanics, INFPs would be verbal artists.

Introverted Sensing

Sensing is introverted and often invisible. This stealth function in the third position gives INFPs a natural inclination toward absent- mindedness and other-worldliness, however, Feeling’s strong people awareness provides a balancing, mitigating effect. This introverted Sensing is somewhat categorical, a subdued version of SJ sensing. In the third position, however, it is easily overridden by the stronger functions.

Extraverted Thinking

The INFP may turn to inferior extraverted Thinking for help in focusing on externals and for closure. INFPs can even masquerade in their ESTJ business suit, but not without expending considerable energy. The inferior, problematic nature of Extraverted Thinking is its lack of context and proportion. Single impersonal facts may loom large or attain higher priority than more salient principles which are all but overlooked.

October 20-24, 2014

What’s a Halloween costume you wore as a child?

I wore a few. No matter what costume it was though, it always had the plastic face with cutout eyes and mouth, and cheaply made outfits to match (usually some sort of plastic too that tied around my clothes). 🙂

I remember being a fairy princess one year. Though we were poor, this one particular year my mom bought a little extra to go with my costume. I walked around thinking I was really a princess. 🙂 I had a glittery ‘magic wand’ with all kinds of colorful ribbons hanging off it. My mom also bought me pink plastic shoes with a ‘heel’ so I could feel all grown up. I must’ve been all of five or six. Yup, I was living large that particular Halloween; I made out pretty good in the candy department too, if I recall correctly. 🙂

What about you guys?

Oct. 13, 2014-Oct. 17, 2014:

Do you have any Halloween plans!

I don’t have any at the moment; that is subject to change though. I’ve done most of the unpacking of clothes and incidentals that I’ll be needing, so I’m going to set aside a little time to decorate a bit. 🙂

 Worst case scenario if I don’t go anywhere would be to stream my favorite Halloween movies on Netflix and pass out goodies to the neighborhood trick or treaters.

While I’m doing that I can continue last-minute prep for NaNo which will start at midnight on the first!

There you have it. My tentative, if all else fails plans for Howl-o-ween! If anything changes, I’ll make sure I update you next week. Have a safe and enjoyable weekend everyone!

Oct. 6, 2014-Oct. 10, 2014:

What’s the scariest movie or book you’ve ever watched or read!

Thinking about it, there are far too many scary books and movies that I’ve seen and read to be able to name off the top of my head. ‘Halloween’ terrified me when it first came out in theaters; the theme music alone still gets me to this day. I was fourteen. I’m sure by today’s standards it’s considered lame because there’s no real blood curdling violence in it. Anticipating what was going to happen is what made the movie so damn scary. That tops my list. The movie ‘It’ and based on the novel by Stephen King comes in a close second.

 Stephen King or Dean Koontz wrote most of the scary books that I read when I was younger. I haven’t read them in a while because I’ve tried to expand my horizons by reading different genres, but Pet Semetary and Carrie are definitely up there. Even though it’s on the tip of my tongue, I can’t remember the name of the Dean Koontz novel I read more than once because it was just that good. I’ll post it the day I figure it out. LOL.

That’s about all I have for this week. I look forward to next week and will try my hardest to be on time with my post!! Hugs to Dani and Jackie for being such great friends!

Express Yourself – October 4, 2014

Hello bloggers! I know everyone is shaking their heads and saying ‘What in the world happened to you girl?’ Well, it can take a while to explain, but I’m truly blessed to have Dani and Jackie always having my back by keeping me on the list. They’re aware that things are usually coming out of left field for me.

I’m in a less stress environment, and now that my furniture and belongings have been permanently moved to my apartment, I’m looking forward to positive things in the future.

Name one thing you love about autumn, even if you hate it!

Autumn has always been my favorite season of the year. I can’t just name one thing I love about Autumn; it’s as impossible as asking which child is your favorite! I love the cooler, crisper air, the changing colors of the trees. I get to pull out my sweaters, wind breakers, and boots.

I’m looking forward to Halloween in all of its fabulous awesomeness this year. Pumpkins and more pumpkins. Carved pumpkins, pumpkin pies, muffins, coffees and lattes. Decorating the cottage once I unpack and organize. Way too excited.

There you have it. The (ahem) ONE thing I love about Autumn.
