That type of wording is terrible, and wrong. It feeds egos and does no good whatsoever. It's a symptom of what the type is. I seriously believe that if INFJ's were not the "rarest" type, and another type was, the exact same sort of pattern would emerge for a different type.
    I have to go and will comment further later, but just wanted to say some of the time I think the way they are described is lacking. There are many detailed and 3 dimensional portraits of the type, but some it seems like just don't know what to say about them- we're mysterious and hard to describe and that's about it. Put the mysterious, eclectic, mystical, religious, off the wall people in that type. In reality most INFJ's are just conscientious and intellectual individuals with highly developed intuition.

    And it's also worth mentioning that many people mistype them as thinkers.

    Her (laughing then seriously considering the question): Only one - if the discussion was strictly between INFPs and clearly for venting purposes only. Otherwise ... no.
    Me: Yup. I agree.

    So there's some possibility that the problem may have something to do with the forum structure (like, there's nowhere for INFPs to have that kind of vent session except the "NF" forum or general MBTI forum ... no space that is "home" space for a given type where people who aren't that type are positioned as visitors/guests). The temperament structure of the subforums, the lack of space by type, actually put me off from joining this site for some time. Of course, this may not really be a source of the problem since I'm only thinking about one example.
    Agreed. A committee to choose validate types must be constituted with severe penalties for mistyped trespassers!

    Freddy Krueger?INFJ.
    Florida?INFJ.
    That orange sitting in the fruit bowl?INFJ.
    Your grandma?INFJ.
    Banana flavored gum?INFJ.(as well as disgusting)
    My grandma?ESTP probably,since she's a drug dealer...she'll fuck you up.

    Anyway,you get the point.

    In all seriousness though,I am highly skeptical of the blatantly unrealistic number of INFJ's on this website,that is to say,there's just no way everyone of those people is an INFJ;I believe they are mostly either INFP's who want to be the special snowflake of MBTI,or very confused ISFJ's.
    Even though the internet is bound to attract more N's than you would normally see in real life,so to speak,I still find it very hard to believe that even a typology website would attract this many INFJ's,being that INFJ's are said to make up roughly 1% of the entire population.

    What did that 1% just multiply itself by 10 and then flood straight into this website or something?

    Frankly,I have no idea where I am going with this,it just makes me angry that so many people seem to be perfectly alright with using a tool meant for self-discovery/self-improvement to feed their own egos,to the point of being willing to lie to themselves.
    I find it funny that people blow up over this fact. (*unfeeling robot mode*) It just sucks for the person who doesn't know that they aren't one. They're not helping themselves. It'll just stagnate their personal development to individuation.

    I am not bugged by it honestly. However, if I do meet an actual INFJ, it gives me hope.

    If you've typed yourself XYZ and feel that you've affirmed that typing through the relationships you've analyzed through the lens of typology, the ideas you've found resonance with, and every connection you could sort out between you and the rest of the world, but someone posits that you're mistyped, you must consider overruling a complex, embedded hypothesis. When you recognize the uncertainty inherent in the typing process, the more you question yourself and the less credible you are in your own eyes over time. The less credible you feel, the more you question. It's an exponential process that plateaus when you just give up and settle. If something disrupts that equilibrium, it can feel like a noob is demanding that you embark on some sort of convoluted initiation process, even though you're already over it. At that point, it's not so much about type as much as it is about status and position, though both are easily mired in egoism.
