Så meget ja!
Do INFPs need more “space”? Why?Imagine being invaded by the the feelings and emotions of others in a way that makes it difficult to be sure whether a feeling or emotion originates from you or someone else. If an INFP “lets it ride” the experience can be exhausting simply because of the additional feelings on top of their own. If an INFP makes the effort to determine what feelings or emotions originate from whom, that can be exhausting just because of the cognitive effort involved.
Being away from people lets an INFP simply be themselves, and deconstruct their experiences without distractions. In social situations INFPs are kinda like funhouse mirrors reflecting those around them in the strange shape of themselves. One reason it’s difficult for people to understand an INFP is because often people confuse their reflection with the INFP themselves, often missing any recognition of self. They may recognize the INFP being accommodating and understanding but fail to grasp the depth and reason behind it.
INFPs need space to understand the difference between themselves and others partly. (Usually a subconscious process, but sometimes a conscious one.) But beyond that they need space to simply be alone as their truest self without having to worry about the feelings and emotions of others altering their perspective.
