INFP tip #19

Be silly.

Our type is a very careful and perfectionist type. We want to please, we want people to like us, and we want to attain an ideal vision of ourselves.

Sometimes I am so caught in that way of thinking, I get very tense and anxious. Also, in my efforts to please everyone, I become very erased, like I lose my essence in an effort to be as neutral as possible.

It’s ok to be silly. It’s ok to make mistakes. You will be liked more if you accept being yourself, and are not afraid to show your flaws. 

Take note of how other people behave in social contexts. Especially ENFx types. They say what they think at the moment. They joke around. If they make mistakes it’s not the end of the world, they laugh it away.

Here is a great example of this way of thinking. Making mistakes is normal. It’s not the end of the world.

Jennifer Lawrence is the best example:
