INFP is a rare personality type. Four percent or less of the population is of this type. So it is not surprising that INFPs have difficulty finding people who are like themselves. The first purpose of this meetup is provide an opportunity for INSPs to find kindred spirits. Second purpose, is to deepen our understanding of the psychology of types as it pertains to INFPs (and IxFxs) to increase our appreciation of their particular strengths and challenges as well as ways to deal with the larger issues of being introverted in our highly extroverted society. INFP, IxFx, and those who would like to understand them better are welcome!
Introversion does not equal shyness --- rather the need to conserve energy when interacting with others.
Feeling does not equal emotionality --- rather the tendency to make decisions based on internal values or ideals.
Intuition is the tendency to look for the possibilities that are offered in a situation rather than focus on just what is there.
Perceiving is the tendency to keep options open and allow new information to change one's understanding rather than come to a fixed conclusion.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
