    If it makes you feel better; once upon a time I thought I was INFJ (for 9 years).

    Also important is that INFPs feel strange to themselves, but INFJs appear strange to others. They're an anomaly. They're really rare. And they don't fit into any real modern social archetype. They're there, they're in the crowd of people, they dress like them, but there's something different about them. Not even different so much as unbelievable.

    And ISFPs are hardly introverts in the sense that INs are. They're more the archetype of a cutesy "I just wanna be alone" girl in new multi-colored fashion clothing. Or something.
    So does that mean if I dress relatively normally, am chatty, and sometimes I think I'm not saying anything out of the ordinary when someone gives me a look like I just sprouted five heads, it's possible? I don't know if I fit an archetype. Some ways I do. Some ways I don't. I'm fairly well educated, semi-respectable white trash. I'm a fiscally and socially liberal/feminist white American Evangelical Christian. I don't think there is much else all that unusual about me, though. Other than being kind of geeky/nerdy depending on your definition.

    Edit: Not remotely psychic. Have had a disappointing lack of any kind of paranormal/supernatural/metaphysical experiences for someone of my religion. It makes me feel like God doesn't like me sometimes. Sometimes I'm a good guesser about what's going to happen, but that's because people usually keep doing the same stuff over and over.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Not this propaganda again.

    INFJs ARE the ones obsessed with being "rare". Check out INFJ forums - at any given time there is some very active thread discussing who really is or is not an INFJ. They do witch hunts where they declare everyone but themselves & Jesus Christ to be fake INFJs. There is a total lack of Fi among these people...and what kind of Fi-dom are you not to notice that? . If they're mistyped, odds are they are still FJs (IMO, likely ISFJ or ENFJ). I can barely stand an INFJ forum for 5 minutes. The Ni arrogance combined with IxFJ passive-aggressiveness in bulk is grating to an INFP.

    Visit an INFP forum...you will not see that. No one cares much if you're mistyped. We're more interested in creating an open & understanding environment, not beating out chests about how rare we are that we don't actually exist. There are no threads where rarity is discussed or where suspicions are heavily debated on whether half the forum is mistyped or not.

    It doesn't align with reality then. The guy in the video makes no sense either. INFPs are dominant rationals. When you discuss typing with an INFP, you will discover they have heavily analyzed & introspected on the matter; the people he describes do not sound INFP.

    INFJs aren't so wonderful & special that everyone wants to be them anyway. They're arrogant enough as is; stop feeding it.

    And INFPs aren't so defective & undesirable that nobody wants to type as one either. How condescending....
    I don't see why we're the catch-all for mistyped people either. Suddenly EVERYONE is INFP nowadays.

    Once upon a time I was an admin over on the INFJ forums. I can sum it up as this: A forum full of mostly F types can be the most insufferable experience you can ever have. I was there for a looooooong time, and there was a minority of members who indeed were INFP's (a number later "converted") who saw themselves as INFJ's. It's not so much a problem that is unique to INFP's INFJ's, or any of those types. It's a product of enneagram 4's. The very nature of that enneagram is going to drive that in a number of individuals. E4's were (and I suspect are; I left in 2011) extremely common there, and are the majority enneatype.

    That, and INFJ's and INFP's as a gorup really do not mix. Like, at all. Put a group of both of them together and you will get wars going that will never stop.

    4s are the majority enneatype of INFPs on the INFP forums, and again, the obsession with rarity doesn't exist. Neither does it exist in the same way on 4 forums. Feeling misunderstood, alienated, strange as an individual, etc, yes, but not obsession with their type being rare.

    So, wait, is it INFJs who are supposedly obsessed with being rare, or SJs who think they're INFJs who are obsessed with being rare?

    The reason it comes up on the INFJ forums is because they are supposably the rarest type (I wholly disagree with that, but that's another matter). It's also based on a single study and shouldn't me taken at face value. It's the nature of what an INFJ is that causes it to be brought up as a topic of discussion. "Oh, hey, look at this, we're rare! Let's talk about it!". INFP's are middle of the road according to the publicly known stats, so it just doesn't get mentioned much; it wouldn't be relavant.

    I wouldn't call it an obsession either. It's meerly a topic that gains attention when brought up because it's alienating to some.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... I know of a close relative of yours that has it a teeny tiny bit worse.

    It's sad when actual ENFPs... are the only individuals that doubt they're ENFPs.
