    I don't really know any INFPs, but the one's that I suppose were... they were too freakin INFPs! It is at the same time boring, frustrating and in a way intimidating. You don't really have any spark if you are both like "I understand you, tell me more"

    But I guess this is one of the little ironies in life. First you want to find someone like you, then you cant stand them.

    Although I haven't consciously met another INFP , I do have the opportunity to occupy the same home as two ENFPs (father and younger sister). I can say I've observed this type of behavior before, although that sample might be tainted because my father has admitted and even bragged about his superiority complex.

    I myself usually get along with them quite well, even if we clash from time to time.

    My boyfriend is an ENFP. Most of my close friends are NFP's. All are more extroverted that I am, but there are a few INFP's.

    We joke about starting a commune. We'd always sleep past noon. And share everything. Cuddles all over the place. It'd be a sensualist's paradise. Soft fabrics and giant fucking pillows. Cats, dogs, and other soft furry animals everywhere. We'd have a massive vegetable garden.

    Paqui and I would heal people. My boyfriend and Tiff would teach. And Ade would do whatever it is that she's going to be brilliant at.

    We'd be a force so brilliant... we'd solve cold fusion in 2.5 seconds.
    To celebrate, we'd have cake and punch. Then get into a food fight.

    When the introverts want their hermit time, we have personal hideyholes to... um... hide in.

    Music, literature, and theater abound.

    We'd hire an ESTJ to take care of the bills, of course.

    My ENFP dad and INFP bro get along so well. For parenting that style match works well.

    INFP - INFJ works well too in parenting.

    also, i have three INFP friends. with one of them, there's always a sense of silent competition: who's more unique? who's more insightful. i feel like i have to "one up" others with my musical taste, personal philosophies, etc.

    I find INTJs online to be fun and thought provoking but sometimes they over do the whole logic thing and seem to stereotype themselves into being machines. Which can be okay, to just toss around fun ideas and such, but nothing... warm comes out of it... I dunno.

    I get on very well with INFPs. I find them interesting and I never notice myself dismissing them because they'd "be too INFP" or "too much like myself". It's the INFJ that often rubs me the wrong way. INFP are from Mars; INFJ are from Venus.

    I don't really know many INTPs, but I friend easily with other Ti-Dom/Aux, ISTPs, ENTPs and ESTPs.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    Not at all in my experience. I tend not to get along great with people who are easily offended, take themselves and the world too seriously, or are preachy.

    I'll probably get stoned for this, but whatever.

    I have found that I have a tendency to offend Fs where no offense was intended and where Ts would have found none. Perhaps it is because of bad experiences with immature Ts, but I have also noticed a tendency for some Fs, and NFs in particular, to assume that I am insulting their intelligence because of their different hierarchy of preferences. Then defensiveness. Nothing could be further from my inclinations or interests. The NTs I have met are more secure in themselves on this front so there is less of a need to walk on eggshells with them.
    Then there are the preacher-figures who think their own solemn visionary light suffices to place them atop a soapbox, never mind the deficiencies of their visions. There is a not-so-fine line between compassionate advocacy and preaching. In my experience (a critical qualifier), Ts have been a bit more skilled at toeing the line, never mind the allegedly superior EQ of Fs.
    There was one easy to offend NT, but he's borderline F, and I know of two preachy NTs. But their typing is questionable on other bases, so I await more examples to blow my observations out of the water.
    All that said, I like people regardless of type who can lighten up and not take things too personally and can let a grudge go when it really doesn't warrant the energy to hold on to it.
