    INFJ Male: INFJ males sometimes seem to possess a soft feminine energy in the way they approach people, but in other respects are very strong and masculine.

    ENTP Male: ENTP males seem to possess a masculine mode of thought and can seem extra masculine, but are also strangely vulnerable and feminine in some respects.

    ENTP Female: ENTP females possess a masculine energy in the way they are direct and assertive, but they share this same vulnerability.

    Out of the four types, I think the INFJ male and the ENTP female have the most difficult time in that their primary energy runs counter to the traditional roles of the sexes. The female being the passive receiver and softer, while the male is the more assertive element. Since ENTP women are more assertive, this can be off-putting to some men. Similarly with INFJ men, as they tend to take a more passive role.

    Your thoughts?
    i have to agree

    though i think you need to put INFJ being feminine in some sort of context

    you meant when INFJ adopt into the role where the sentiment echoed for every action by a girl is exactly as a man would expect it to be and nothing else...didnt you

    entp masculinity covers the brutal apathetic terms that are sometimes used when dealing with life...and then there is that directed aggression that is really nothing but impatience with stupidity (labeling something stupid in itself is a very judging thing and in the modern world, men seem to use this label more than women)

    Hello,
    From what I gather my father and brothers are all NF and I always thought they were the most masculine of men. They were shrewd, decisive, intolerant, biased, open, attentive, bigoted, afraid, deferent, loving, vulnerable, insecure, vast, appreciative, knowledgeable, and all the rest of humanity. They never wanted to marry me, which I understand.

    I agree with this. Synarch is projecting what he wants on the types. He wants a very submissive "feminine" NF so he paints all NFs with the same brush. The INFJ women I know aren't any more "feminine" than I am, but that's partly why we gravitated to each other, we have a lot in common beyond MBTI type. I also don't agree that there are "masculine" and "feminine" attributes, that's 1950's sociology mumbo jumbo.

    If by energies you mean how we come off online then I completely agree.

    I agree. That's fairly close to what I was thinking.

    Why would your brothers and father want to marry you?

    No. You are projecting what you want me to project. You are also INTJ, so maybe your vision is occluded.
