Group projects. Too many weekend plans. Sensory overload when you forget your headphones. If you’re an introvert, you know the struggle is real.
After many years of overwrought self-analysis and a drawn out misunderstanding of my own needs, I now wear my self-awarded badge of introversion with honor.
I’m an INFP, and I don’t consider myself to be an obsessive cleaner. Despite this, clutter is the one thing that can drive me out of my mind.
It’s not easy being an introvert. Little things that don’t bother extroverts, like hanging out in groups, can chip away at your energy.
Though the challenges of being highly sensitive are still something I manage daily, I also feel lucky to be so finely attuned to the world around me.
As an INTJ, sometimes, I feel not just alone, but like I am the only one who thinks and feels a certain way. The only one who can’t fit into this world.

In the end, my problem wasn’t my age, rank, or introversion. My problem was the limiting beliefs I told myself about introversion.
As a highly sensitive person, at the end of the day, I crave a dimly-lit, silent room – preferably alone or in my boyfriend’s company only.
When I was looking for love, I heard a lot of dating advice that made me feel uncomfortable as an introverted man. “Nice guys finish last,” they say.
I’ve always been ruthless when it comes to shedding things I no longer need. My INFJ nature leaves room for sentimentality but also makes me prefer order.
Love is the life-blood of the INFP personality type. As lovers of love, finding a compatible partner willing to investigate our complex nature can be hard.
