Don't be ashamed of being INFP

So recently, I've been seeing a number of threads, primarily on /b/, which have essentially consisted of people saying, "Oh God, I'm an INFP, I'm such an inherent loser, I should just an hero and get it over with."
These threads ended up being beneficial for me, because I took the tests, and not only read the results, but read a number of other articles that I was able to Google, and realised that I'm an INFP myself. Of course, it isn't necessarily a 100% match in all areas; I'm still an individual. It is a good enough fit to be useful, however.
This prompted me to make a thread, offering some advice to fellow INFPs, as to how they can start to feel more positive about being one.
a} Tell an atheist or scientific materialist to FUCK OFF at least once a day. Do it adamantly, robustly, and with genuine feeling. You'll be surprised how psychologically liberating and gratifying the experience is.
More specifically, be aware of the fact that, contrary to the pro-atheistic groupthink which is slowly taking over the Internet, intuition which doesn't strictly conform to the dictates of hard rationalism, doesn't always need to be seen as a curse. Atheists will see it that way, of course, but that's where, again, the ability to tell them to FUCK OFF (both internally and externally) will come in very useful. Give yourself permission to be intuitive, and to have ideas, beliefs, and perspectives which deviate from mainstream thought. Generally speaking, any idea which deviates from mainstream thought, usually does so by being more intelligent, less pathological, and with a higher degree of moral integrity anyway. You really aren't losing anything, by refusing to follow along with every other drone in the collective.

I find myself thinking of revenge a lot /adv/. which is weird seeing as how I'm the first person to speak up against revenge, it eats you from the inside, it's no way to live, etc.
I jsut want to be really successful and shove it in the faces of everyone that ever treated me like shit. have a big, amazing house. roll through town in a great car (google factory 5 type 65 coupe... DEM LINES) and dress like a fucking boss. and go to, for example, my highschool reunion, and be there for a short amount of time, just enough to shove it in people's faces, then leave. and as I walk out, look my highschool gf in the eyes, and mouth, "fuck you" to her.
why do I have these thoughts? I don't want to. I want to leave all the fuckers behind. I don't want to care.
little help here /adv/?

How do I tell my GF that she needs to start wearing makeup, no fucking joke? I tried to be nice talking to her in a positive manner about it first, but nothing has fucking changed.
So I've been dating my GF and she has gotten "comfortable" with me now. This is 6 months in. The problem is she is 32, and goes from a 6 1/2 or 7 to maybe a 4 without makeup. Now I'm not talking caking it on and whoring it up, but basic fucking makeup here. Shit girls learn in high school. I'm almost embarrassed to go out in public with her, and I hate to say so in this manner, but I get a lot of looks from other girls and chicks that flirt with me because of a "Why the fuck are you with her?" type of attitude.
This has become a big deal to me. I put in effort for my appearance, and I feel like she doesn't. And sometimes I feel frankly unappreciated and insulted that she can't spend a bit of time to do this for me. This shit needs to stop with a quickness.

Is this just a pollen/grass allergy or something more serious?
Whenever I was young I used to get allergies a lot, went away whenever I was probably 9 or 10. Then I would maybe get some sniffles on occasional mornings or my throat would hurt around cut grass.
Recently I moved to a new place after living in the same place for 5 years, and what I think are allergies have started again. The place I was in before was an apartment complex with alot a lot of grass and the type of trees did not produce the pollen that usually gets to me.
Been sneezing every morning, tenderness in my nose, slight pain in my throat sometimes when I inhale. The main issue is that I have been having trouble swallowing, despite not having ever experienced this symptom in my life. I have no issue swallowing food or water, but just regular swallowing has been giving me some trouble.
Should I chalk it up to the new environment and regular allergies, or should the trouble swallowing be cause for alarm? Is it typical for allergies to come back in such a big way after not being exposed for awhile?

So I'm currently in my 3rd year of a degree and am confident that I'll get it at the end of the year. For some reason, maybe because a couple of my friends were doing it and because it's cheaper to live at home, I decided to go to university in my home city and live at home. I don't know why the fuck I decided to do that, because although I was reeeasonably popular in high school, I've been super unpopular at university, and I think it's mainly due to the lack of campus life (for some reason more people still live with their parents at my university than at the average one; it's in a big city).
Well as it turns out, my degree's pretty useless and now I'm thinking of, instead of doing a postgrad degree, leaving the country and going to England, where I've noticed a bunch of universities have an "affiliated students" route where you can go straight through to second year of an undergrad if you have a degree already. My question is, how hard would it be to make new friends if I enter in second year? I imagine that it'd be much harder than if I'd started in first year, because everyone's already made their new friends. I don't even know where I'd start.
Keep in mind that I'm incredibly socially awkward and shit at making new friends. My circle of friends in high school was mainly due to me having known them since my mother was making playdates for me, and she just happened to get me in with what grew into the popular crowd, even though I myself grew up to be incredibly shy and awkward. I know a few people like that who went to university, stayed on campus, and made a lot of friends very easily. But how different is it entering in second year, where nobody's out of their comfort zone and forced to make friends anymore? Do I have a chance of finding popularity?

Hey guys, I need some girl advice.
I met a girl last year in my dorm. She's really cute, like a 7/10. Anyways we were kinda fuck buddies, played some vidya together, etc. She would get a little attached sometimes, but whatever.
Anyways, over the summer on a work term I met some cool people, and didnt tell them I game. They became my good bros. Anyways, we were all chilling, and my fuckbuddy comes over with her laptop (oh shit). She wants to play some vidya with me, and all my bros are laughing at us. It was so fucking embarrassing.
So, like anyone would, I later pulled her aside to tell her I wasn't cool with her doing that. She kind of nodded her head and went on, so I though she was cool. Anyways, I've been trying to contact her for a booty call, and she won't return any of my calls, messages, emails. I can't find her around either. I used to hang with her all the time, now it seems like shes avoiding me. She even deleted me off facebook. I'm starting to think what I said to her might have hurt her feelings. Any way I can win her back? I really miss free sex whenever I wanted, lol. What would you guys do?
Question about friend, medfags appreciated.

Side thing from a /pol/ thread that got me thinking.
I have a friend who is hugely bright, and also seems to have hypersensitive hearing. He typically wears earplugs, but is quite capable of hearing a normal conversational tone even with them on. (And facing away too, so I'm sure he's not reading lips)
Loud noises make him wince, and ordinarily I'd suspect some sort of autism, but he doesn't have that sort of super-focused area of intelligence. He's just... bright, social, gregarious.
