This manual sanctioned by and concept credit to @intpboard ;)
CONGRATULATIONS! Somehow you have found a wandering and bewildered INFP. Evidently they have offered you this manual after hearing you support Sherlock and their OTP. Take a moment to feel good about yourself, this is an important step in your relationship.
Your INFP companion will come with the following accessories:
Three (3) diaries (CAUTION: Perusal unadvised. Touch these at your own risk)
Three (3) everyday outfits
Two (2) indie outfits
Two (2) Tumblr blogs
One (1) laptop
One (1) mobile device
One (1) pair of custom-built earphones
One (1) unique tea mug
One (1) cat
You INFP comes programmed with the following traits:
Fi: Your INFP is a special snowflake. They will have invisible feels, but keep an eye out for the cute smile. And they probably really do Know that feeling.
Ne: Your INFP is weird and likes ambiguous things. May meme occasionally.
Si: Your INFP likes to store up good memories and database feelings like buried treasure for that novel they’re writing.
Te: Although it is their inferior function, your INFP can be executive and use cold hard logic to be remarkably strong and creative. They may need help adapting to the harsh outside world. May secretly hate everything (including themselves) if unhealthy.
To set up your INFP companion:
1. Fill mug with tea and place INFP in close proximity of cat and a sunset and leave to bask until heart is pleasantly warm.
2. Sync with Tumblr (this should happen automatically through a deep emotional connection inherent in all INFPs, much like Bluetooth).
3. Allow thirty (30) minutes of continuous data exchange.
4. Sit beside them for thirty (30) minutes in silence as Human Presence Conditioning.
5. Get up. If your INFP moves to follow, they have successfully activated and synced with you. If not, repeat Step 4 with the cat.
Quiet (default) - quiet cinnamon roll. May stare off into space, usually either very sweet or very sarcastic, depending on your model. May be a socially awkward if brand new. Be careful not to forget about or leave behind your INFP when it is in this mode.
Talkative - frequent activation of this mode usually correlates with quick Human Presence Conditioning. Explore topics until you find which ones activate this mode, you may be surprised.
Feels - may need unusual amount of solitude with all accessories in easy access. Be receptive of feels if expressed, to avoid software crashing.
Crazy/happy - have fun, roll with it, but beware of hazard unwariness.
Unhealthy/shadow (locked) - only activated under extreme stress. May burn everything in its path, or burn self in solitude.
Relationships with other units:
NFs: Your INFP’s homey home. May feel threatened or devalued by INFJ units due to social constructs, but usually end up getting along.
SPs: Interesting territory for your INFP. May find Se overwhelming, but generally find them intriguing, perhaps from a distance.
NTs: May or may not get along, if they do, have very interesting discussions, good for software conditioning. May be cut by perceived coldness if new.
SJs: Can be very fun. INFP gets to feel like an educator in Ne, and may learn from high Si if healthy. Some of these usually necessary for grounding your INFP during lightning storms.
Your INFP may be constantly snacking. A ‘regular’ diet is not strictly necessary, but sneak some vitamins into their packet and fetish foods occasionally.
Some INFP units require more grooming than others. If your INFP excessively self-grooms, it is probably not just a phase (see Bjork). You have little to no control over this.
Your INFP companion unit runs the risk of becoming nocturnal. Discover the cause for this - usually either angst or creativity. If the former, see Troubleshooting (p. 9). If the latter, arrange bedside outlets - NOT tumblr.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Why does my INFP procrastinate so much?
Unlike INTPs, INFP units have Te software, however it is in its beta version upon unit activation and the full version can be installed after some conditioning. Engaging them in tasks they have a personal investment in and using Divide and Conquer applications may aide effectiveness.
Why is my INFP so sensitive to criticism/so defensive/so salty?
See above question (Te software). INFP units also have an Identity Crisis application that is hosted by Fi, activated by ‘negative’ external stimulus and executed by Te. With the full version of Te, this application can lead to powerful self-transformation. Sensitivity should decrease with conditioning, however positive affirmation will help stabilize application launch.
Help! My INFP unit is stuck in Unhealthy / Shadow mode!
There are three main manifestations of unhealthy mode. If in shadow functions, an ENFJ may be helpful. If in the grip of Te, they may need help coming to terms with reality. Often fire and brimstone anger and ‘just do it’ mentality can help pull your INFP out of apathy long enough to grow healthier. If in an Fi-Si loop, thrust you INFP into a new situation, or several. In any case, getting your INFP to communicate their problems to other units (other NFs are usually best) will be highly beneficial, although your INFP’s Fi may resist initially.
Again, CONGRATULATIONS on acquiring your new INFP unit! Have fun!
