Can You Do This?

Are you able to envision a way of thinking that is a stark contrast of your own? I'm not outgoing in the slightest, but I can picture and feel what it would be like to be that way.

As an INFP, can you do that? Can you imagine other people's perspectives vividly? Can you imagine thinking another way, and actually, momentarily, apply it to your own mind?

Yes... When I'm on a debate I see so many perspectives that I can't get a conclusion! Sometimes it's very frustrating...

INFP's: putting ourselves in other people's shoes, one foot at a time.

Yes I do this all the time. In a day I would imagine the realities of so many people and things to the point that I have to stop myself when I know I'm obsessing too much! I imagine the realities of everyone I meet in detail, which can be distracting when you're trying to get to know someone new and not make judgement of them.

I do this all the time with people I'm concerned with at the time and yes, I'm an INFP as well.

Yes, this happens to me all the time! I will see someone across the room, doing something completely differently from me, and I can instantly put myself in their shoes, feel like I am them from their perspective completely. I wasn't sure anyone else experienced this, or that is was just an empath thing.
