Do you identify as an INFP Myers-Briggs personality type? Do you seem to have a problem with being critical or judgmental of yourself? Maybe you are afraid of making mistakes?
Here’s 7 Possible Reasons INFP Personality Types Judge Themselves…
1 ARE FREE SPIRITS-
Of the 16 personality types, INFPs are the most independent and nonconforming. If they try to be “normal” and make themselves follow others, they can fall into the pattern of judging themselves.
2 ARE EXTREMELY TELEPATHIC-
INFPs tend to be overemotional because they can experience others’ feelings, even if the feelings are not expressed. That means they have the ability to detect the slightest anger, fear, or dishonesty in others, no matter how far away they are. Until INFPs see actual evidence of those feelings, they might judge themselves.
3 HAVE HIGH STANDARDS-
INFPs tend to strive to be perfect. When they fall short of their expectations, they often judge themselves.
4 HAVE A HARD TIME MAKING DECISIONS-
INFPs tend to need time to explore and examine their options carefully before making decisions. They could easily judge themselves for not being able to make a decision, or for taking too long to make a decision. This could be alleviated if the INFP would utilize their intuition or inner guidance in the matter.
5 CRAVE EMOTIONAL INTIMACY-
INFPs tend to want deep emotional relationships. In fact, INFPs are one of the personality types who seek and actually find their twin flame. They can often judge themselves for not being able to find or be with “the one” yet.
6 NATURALLY EXPLORE EVERYTHING-
INFPs tend to explore and experience all sorts of things. Nothing’s wrong with that! In fact, exploring is how their creativity blossoms. They might judge themselves for needing to explore so much or when they take one of their experiences too seriously and think it was wrong.
7 ARE EXTREMELY INTUITIVE-
If an INFP tries to be “normal” and dumbs down their intuitive ability, they are attempting to cut off their source. There could be a tremendous amount of self-criticism when they can’t be someone they are not meant to be.
