    edit: Ni-Fe is also extremely rare (infj's as less than 1% of the population) while Si-Fe is possibly the most common. This is a likely reason for the confusion./edit
    Also Ni-Fe can look a lot like Si-Fe to an outside observer. Just like myself Ne-Ti can look a lot like Se-Ti outwardly. Only Ni-Fe appears even more so like Si-Fe because the Ni or Si is introverted and therefore hidden from casual observation.

    You seem to be speaking more about the inward experience, which I agree that inwardly Ni-Fe is very different than Si-Fe. I'm married to an INFJ, so I'm well aware of the differences. But that Fe is still there. That desire for a shared experience is quite present, but it manifests itself in both conventional and unconventional ways.

    Elopement can be very romantic!

    Just don't tell anyone...or they will come anyway.

    Oh I agree. Unfortunately there's a few too many people involved to allow for cutting them out of ""our" special day" without backlash.

    Don't make the mistake of referencing those traits to SJs, and by this token keeping on typing SJ's only after observation of said traits. There are many SJs that do not match the stereotype - and by many, I mean not just statistically significant, but an amount capable to shake the mean.

    This said, marriages are a good source of post-marriage dinners - don't complain.

    I dislike eating out anyway so that's not much comfort I'm afraid.

    The "SJ?" in the title was serving two purposes. Firstly it stops the glib answer of "well you're an NP so of course you object" and secondly the traits mentioned are more prone to be present in SJs than NPs. As all MBTI is preference I mentioned it as such.

    It IS a mistake to believe the stereotype to be representative in detail of everyone but it is also a mistake to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Just because people often fail to use the stereotypes well does not mean that we shouldn't use them.

    I find stereotypes useless, as I said, when they start to become a part of a self-fulfilling prophecy cycle that makes us identify a given segment of the population that displays traits contrary to ours with the logic contradiction of our own personality. This ain't necessarily so - or, better, it might be so, but there is no strict relation to MBTI terms. SJs that are neither in favour nor against marriage are plentiful, but they might be identified by you as NJs or SPs due to your categorization, even if the functional ordering they display is pertaining to the SJ category.

    I also think you should start appreciating the finer things in life - the simples, finer things in life such as eating out. Maybe you'll start being less bitchy this way.
