    Default Romanticism and Type

    Are any of the types more prone to romanticism? Any why so?
    Basically - being a romantic. In any aspect of life really, but probably more so in the relationship, career, and friendship subjects.
    I'm curious of what people will have to say about this topic.

    I'll think you'll find romantic tendencies most strongly characteristic of the introverted feeling type - INFP and ISFP, with INFP perhaps more so. Inroverted feeling does not require an external source of reference for validation, nor does it allow itself to be overridden by impersonal calculations of probability and material utility. This makes I*FP types particularly prone to hold on to their dreams regardless of setbacks, and so the Fi dominant types are probably the most srongly romantic by nature (although they may be be wary about expressing it directly than other romantically inclined types). I would guess that NFs in general would not be far behind

    Yes, I wrote an essay on that.
    That - romanticism (as a form of literature) appeals mostly to introverted feelers.
    I knew INFP would be the major type people would point out - but I am curious about the other types. Those with Fi as not a dominate function.

    INFJ in my opinion would have the ability to be the most "romantic" as you might stereotype it. INFPs with dominant Fi aren't exactly perceivers....

    Technically, the INFP would more likely be the religious fanatic.

    religious fanatic =/= romantic But yes, you are right.

    Interesting idea. So what's the reasoning?

    Have you ever seen a preacher that wasn't ESTJ or some other delta quadra member? (Socionics: ESTj, INFj, ENFp, ISTp)

    My sister is (near enough to) a preacher and she is ENFJ. I'd say most of her church consists of EXXJs. I don't see very many introverts liking her church as it very "involved."

    Anyway, I think INFx's are the most romantic, but ENFJs seem the most outwardly romantic. I'm a romantic through and through (even though I can be quite cynical if I am unsure due to life crushing my idealism many times). My INFP friends are just as romantic, but I think my feelings are deeper and more focused

    I suppose in the far recesses of my mind I still am but I'm currently too smacked around to not let my Te sit in the judgment seat. Once bitten, twice shy; I've been bit 5 times. My life growing up on the other hand helped me see the rest of life as just the interaction of greed and that it's best to deal with other people as such to start.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    INFP, 6w7, IEI

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.
