    I thought INxPs are biggest flakers with social dominants being the flakiest of the bunch. I don't know any other type that is as notoriously flakey or moody as INxPs.

    I definitely flake but I don't do it out of passive-aggressiveness, nor anxiety about attending something I wasn't set on anyway, I do it 'cause I'm moody with my commitments. Don't feel like attending the latest concert with friends or something...? Don't, pretend I've got other necessary commitments. I never agree to something I'm not set on, I'll give others that much however I will also wake up and have a sudden change of mood and decide to flake out of something. I honour my flaking by bothering to contact them and letting them know that I'm unfortunately flaking on them.

    If I weren't so moody, it wouldn't be a problem but as I said, I never say yes to things I dislike to begin with.

    I did when I was younger...it's true. Now, it's important to me not to do it, so I don't. If I say I will do a thing, then I follow through to the end.

    Anyway, my answer: I used to never flake, my default mode was "I said I wanted to do it, therefore I do what I said. Otherwise, I would have said no". But I 65learnt over the years that people flake a lot, so now I flake too with people who have a tendency to flake, and don't flake when they don't.

    sometimes i flake. i was worse when i was young, got kind of obsessed with timeliness for a while, and now i'm somewhere in the middle.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    A previous flake here. When I was young, it was because I didn't like telling people no, so I would say yes to something I didn't want to do and then flake at the last minute.

    In college it was because I would seriously overestimate my capacity for stimulation. So I would be excited about hanging out with friends early in the day, by the time class was over (acting by the way--which was a bit stressful for me), I was tired and ready to go home.

    I got called on it, and now generally my answer to everything is maybe.

    I know a FeNe ESFJ who is ridiculously flaky in a cavalier way, to the point where I considered putting our friendship on hold until she matured and became more respectful.
