more on INFP (and drugs)
I was wondering about my personality type and substance use. Since ive moved to california ive tried drugs i regret doing and ones I fantasize about doing again. Ive become a bit of a psychonaught. So i recently discovered my personality type, an INFP, the dreamers, the idealists, the type that roots for the underdog, the hopeless romamtic… I truly am enigmatic and misunderstood. It was a relief to discover this especially as Ive been isolating myself and enduring a plethora of social issues I cant even begin to list or explain.
when i first tried shrooms i enjoyed the feeling, but LSD really appealed to my idealist nature and imagination and creativity. Now I know why I adore psychadelics and why Im going to become even more of a psychonaught. I’m still doing research into the likelyness of my love of tripping and my personality type but this makes sense to me.

INFP and my favorite drugs are psychedelics. they evoke my sense of wonder, freedom, and creativity. my first few experiences with psychedelics showed me that this was definitely the path i was meant to go down. my favorite of these is lsd. it’s my wonder-drug. but i also love other psychedelics. mdma has really helped me bring the important aspects of my personality to the forefront. i also have all my own issues which mdma really helps me work around. but there’s definitely a darker side to all of this. i enjoy cocaine and alcohol because they’re my “fuck it” drugs. they bring me out of the death trap that is my own thoughts. i guess that’s a poor way to deal with things but it’s all about balance

Fellow INFP here. Oddly enough I experienced the “I was meant to go down the psychedelic road” thought also. This was after my first trip ever, which was on mushrooms. I tripped alone during a tropical storm and for once in my life I felt like I had the world figured out. I spend the majority of my days just thinking and coming up with incredibly elaborate theories on life and the universe, and psychedelics proved to me that I had really only seen the tip of the iceburg. That everyday consciousness is just a tiny part of what life really is. I felt like I was always destined to experience these drugs and explore my own mind. It was a really eye opening experience for me and it was incredible. I would have to say my favorite drugs would be psychedelics (Including weed) and opiates. Weed is the only drug I’ve ever really used daily, but I got busted for possession a couple months ago and I’ve been drinking a lot more recently, which I hate, due to drug testing. Its kind of becoming a problem. I can’t wait till april when I’m done with all of that shit lol.

oh no way man, mushrooms were my first psychedelic as well and to this day, that was probably one of the most important experiences of my life. it just blew me away. and ya, weed has been my long time friend for many years. opiates are nice too, but booze and blow are the ones that help me unleash the ENFP that has been underneath the INFP”
