    So I saw this on other boards. And I think it might help a few people (myself) and others to have laugh at our own expense .

    So post 3 reasons why being an INFJ sucks. You can post more than once of course. They can be funny, serious our whatever. The idea is to remember its ok to laugh about how messed we all can be.

    I'll start.

    1. We have this idea that we know the truth and no one else dose.
    2. We feel way to much. We are an emotional dumping ground.
    3. We are way to stubborn and we fight the current a good majority of the time.

    1. We are usually the "doormat" for everyone else.
    2. Disregard our feelings for another's happiness
    3. Tend to enjoy fairgrounds and child stuff wayyy too much ;P

    1. The mind never ever ever ever ever turns off.
    2. Things need to be planned and layed out, but there is a yearning to just be spontaneous and live in the moment.
    3. Ni can be limiting by causing us to avoid things that might actually be good things.

    1. We tend to over-idealize romantic relationships
    2. We suck when conflict resolution becomes emotional (hard to keep a cool head)
    3. We get bullied (or at least misunderstood) at school

    1. We genuinely like people, but they suck the life force out of us.
    2. We try to come off one way and end up looking/sounding another completely opposite way.
    3. And we're so freaking awesome :m027: but nobody gets it/ sees it. :wink:

    I must agree. I'm fair better making hash browns. Stop my my house and I'll make some for ya. :m155:[

    damn pancakes.

    1. We are always looking past the good things we may have.
    2. We day dream so much we may walk into things.
    3. We care more about other people than they care about themselves.
    4. We get ignored because of our N

    Oh and I agree with everyones posts.

    Oh and I almost forget we could never be an effective killer. We care to much to do the terrible things that are often needed.lol

    1.) we may die of brain cancer (i don't know if overthinking and stress leads to brain cancer)
    2.) if we aren't emotionally satisfied, we feel EMPTY,USELESS, worthless, self-pity.
    3.) lack self-confidence
    4.) most of the times we hate what we have, and ask for more, NEVER CONTENTED

    1) Isolation, confliction, and inner turmoil are basically normal
    2) People never see the whole picture, even if we want them to
    3) We end up taking care of the people around us, often without someone willing to take care of us in return.

    Aren't INFJs champions of vigilante justice? I mean, if a person hurt someone that I loved, I could be. Otherwise, definitely not.

    Well, yeah, but sometimes "champions of justice" kind of go at it from the wrong angle. Hitler has been pinned as xNFJ
