Elise Ann asked: How do you relate to INFPs? you must find us exhausting
I do find you exhausting. You burst out with seemingly random topic changes while I’m still philosophically analysing something you said two hours ago. Also, your emotions…dear me, they are everywhere…
But yes, there are a few ways that I relate to INFPs (not drastic ways, just subtle ones).
The main way that I relate to INFPs in the persistent Fi desire to do the right thing. Of course, we go about it vastly differently, but the goal is the same.
Secondly, there is the often frequent drive for creativity –which, as a writer, artist and Ni user, I relate to regardless of whether the creativity stems from an Ni or Ne function. Both types of intuition can be vastly creative, just in different ways. Many make the mistake of assuming that only Ne is creative, and that Ni is merely a goal setting function –this is based on a limited understanding of MBTI.
Ni presents more of a focused and vision oriented creativity while Ne presents an unexpected and possibility based creativity.
