    Why is that a bad thing? I didn't think INTP's preferred to interact with intensely emotional people?
    I find INTPs, ESTJs, ESTPs, ENTPs ...hell anyone, easier to read than an INFJ!
    Yes, but isn't that what makes us interesting?

    Emotional (with the connotation of neurotic).. no, but some INTPs appreciate sensitivity and emotional depth.

    Compensate for ENFJs? Nah. Just ride the wave

    Me thinks the pressure would change that response some. Plus the whole "running the world is your life" has to have some bearing. Besides yuz the brain right?

    Hah! I fear no NF tirade.
    It's the NT tirade that scares the bejeebus out of me!

    Boring. Stop being so boring. Why are you so boring? Bored.

    Nope. I dislike the intensely emotionally irrational kind. Intense emotion is like intense thought to me. It's all processing. I surround myself with emotional type. They add the technicolor to the world

    Interesting? Error. Misuse of word.

    Irritating.

    Quite true. In fact I love the INFP deep mysticism, I love the ENFJ command and the ESFP throw caution to the wind. Balanced Fs are as much fun if not more so than balanced Ts. Something to do with feeling included. I have my FIRO-B scores and I'm sticking to them

    I guess there's a reason INTP's often seem to understand INFP's (at least in some ways) better than we can a lot of the time. Do you find us boring since our emotions don't seem as intense as other F's?

    Personally I come from an upfront family. I have upfront friends and value the straight up no nonsense honesty. I also treat obfuscation and excessive defence as a lack of honesty at worst and an irritation at best. The INFJ I know has known me for like 10 years, is my sisters ex (that happened in the middle of the ten years) and still I feel like grabbing a pick axe and taking it to his head. Why conceal everything? What on earth is worth all that effort?

    I'm an honest and straight talking person, mostly. I do this in part to show my respect for others and in part so others can know what it is I need and want so they have a cat's chance in hell of accomplishing it. Those that do the opposite to this tend to read to me as disrespectful and also awkward as they still seem to want stuff and expect to get it (aside from the "tragic" ones) and yet do they tell you what it is that they want? Do they heck as like! That's just plain irritating in my book.



    After further thought though I guess yes. I like interactive people and some just seem so cold and unresponsive that yes I do get bored and wander off.

    How long would you poke someone in the ribs who screamed entertainingly as opposed to one who merely sat there and looked at you?

    Actually that's how the ESFP got to be known to me as entertaining. She's the only person you can tickle without actually having to touch. Just look like you're going to tickle her.

    I don't really care for actively socializing but I do it well. More than anything, I'm naturally quiet, serious, and thoughtful, but if I get the idea in my head that I should do something, then more often than not I go for it. There are a lot of things/behaviors that I do well that aren't really "natural" to me. It's not change, it's development. Self-actualizing. "Being all that you can be." Of course,

    Where do you draw the line?

    Line? What line? You Js and your lines!!!


    I guess the "line" is drawn wherever you choose it to be. Unless you are some kind of science experiment then you're an individual and as such you get to draw it yourself. The only problem with that is within your own psychology and whether you're restricting yourself to your comfort zone with these "lines". It's often all to easy to claim that you can't do something and blame it on your type. All you're really doing is putting a name on a monster. That doesn't remove the fact that the monster is part of you.
