Musings of an INFP

I wonder if all INFPs reinvent themselves as much as I do? I've heard that a lot of actors are INFP, actually. That makes so much sense. I'm a horrible memorizer, but becoming a million different types of people has a definite appeal.

In the past year alone, I've reinvented myself as a scientist, a librarian, a health nut, an athlete, and a morning person (that one failed quicker than the others - who wants to be a morning person anyway?). Each one of those is actually a facet of my personality, or at the very least, a latent interest, so it's been terribly fascinating to learn more about each of these things. I wonder what persona I'll adopt next?


  1. Oh boy do I know about reinventing oneself! But then on the other hand, who says we can't be all these things at the same time? :) Though I know when you're trying to juggle multiple interests it's hard to keep even one of them in the air...

  2. So true! There's only so many hours in a day. Unfortunately. Sometimes I wish I could do and be everything, but of course that's not practical.

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
