    That may be but it seems way more pronounced to me in the folks of this particular type that I've known.

    I agree, when I'm depressed I can fall into a "you don't understand me" silly wrapped up and self-absorbed behavior and belittling people's feelings about a situation.
    It passes though, as much as I like to believe it won't.
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

    Yeah... my few neurotic episodes usually resulted in me just blaming myself for everything.

    If X happens to them, it's a horrible monumentous thing and they need time to get through it. If X happened to you, they'd tell you to 'get over it' and they'd wonder why you were being so weak.
    I can see what you're saying with the first part (even if you didn't exactly do a very good job of actually saying it) but not the second. Telling people to just 'get over' their problems is pretty much the opposite of what I and other INFJ's I know do. The INFJ's I know are wonderfully sensitive to other peoples problems and we always get satisfaction out of helping out to the point that we often spend too much time caring for other people that we forget to take care of ourselves. We'll do things like staying in a bad relationship because we think we can 'save' the other party, often at our own expense.

    The most empathetic person I know is an INFJ. He can also be a bit of a drama-king and end up spiraling into self-destructive behavior at times.

    I will agree that I get a bit more self-centered when I'm having problems, like my current depression. I used to be a bit of a drama-king, too (only around people who I'm actually comfortable sharing my emotions with, though), but I've fallen into the habit of blocking out and numbing down all my emotions even since I got depressed. There's only three or four people who have any capacity at all to understand my problem (both NF's, naturally), but nobody else I talk to actually tries to understand the problem. They just brand me with the first self-pitying label they can think of.

    This has been my experience with INFJs. They inhabit their moods and so can be kind of tempermental at times but it usually passes quickly.

    I like INFJs a lot. Both my parents are INFJ and I have good relationships with both. Nurturing, caring, interested, smart, sense of humor, optimistic, wise seems to be just a few of the good traits typical of INFJs. A lot of times when I come across a deep, thoughtful and sincere person I'll be quick to assume they're INFJ.

    I think INFJs are a little too private and a little too sensitive (takes one to know one), but they're still amazing. Why? Because they're psychic. Don't give me that "I'm not psychic, I'm discerning" crap... you're psychic.

    Also, without my INFJ mother, I would be insane.

    EDIT: I would be more insane.
