    Just out of curiosity, what do you think his type is?

    Could be actually. It was a long time ago. But just going through some memories that's what I come up with.

    I don't think an INFJ would go to therapy for it. He'd pine in silence. Then slam the door quietly some time later. Sounds INFP to me.

    Both INF's can present as reclusive, depending on personality. But INFP seems to be more flexy and able to adjust to unplanned changes in the relationship "if they make sense." That's been my experience. INP's flex to environment changes.

    My impression with INFJ is that undiscussed changes in the relationship like that (e.g., you just stop talking to him) could easily be seen as a personal betrayal and INJ's are not nearly as good at flexing in situations like that.

    As do I - just to be clear.

    You were special in a way to him that he believed you felt as well, that you reflected. When you moved on, it sounds to me that it shook him - the hard realization that what he felt for you was not the same as what you felt for him. A painful lesson at so young an age.

    You think this makes him fragile though? It just sounds human actually.

    This is troubling on two fronts:

    1.) INFP does not equal fragility - all types could experience this pain given the situation. This is just reflecting the ol' emo stereotype INFP's get slapped with around here.

    2.) And you're laughing about that, even though I know you don't mean it to be nasty ... sigh, it's so sad.

    To me, being so dependent on a person as to have that reaction when they are gone, is fragility.

    ^ so if he loved you as a brother, can you imagine a difference in that scenario?

    We were definitely like "brothers," as how the term to describe friends like that is used. I suppose that maybe I saw it that way too. We spent entire weekends together, school vacations together, from kindergarten until 8th grade. At that age, I expected [and still do, somewhat] other people to behave like me, socially. I know now that this is largely projection on my part.

    But I don't really see the difference, or how that makes a difference? I don't really think I have the capability to understand that kind of dependency.
