    Default What are your opinions about INFJs?

    Okay, let me start off by saying that I'm not looking for praise and I'm not trying to be self-centered. I want to better understand my type from the view of others.
    I never really know how other people think of me, or INFJs in general; there's a big long list of traits for INFJs, but I never really know for sure what is something only we know about ourselves, or what other people actually do see in us.
    I suppose it actually is a trait of INFJs to not know what other people actually think of us, and I relate wholly. However, I want to better understand it; I want to see from the outside in.

    So, shoot: try to be honest. And try covering both sides: the positives and the negatives.
    I'd really appreciate it

    I personally appreciate that you recognize my subtle antics more than any other type. I get the half-cocked head to the side dog look from people I suspect are infjs, which keeps me going. Twitch to the left, shake of the head, flick of the wrist... my body is only a puppet and you guys aren't the only audience. High five, infj!

    I don't really know any (that I've spoken to recently) from around my home ~50 mile radius, funny enough. I have a hunch that one of my old bosses from college was one, but my memories of him are fading. He was a cool guy though, had a real chip about my "attitude" as he put it... which often confused me to no end. Talking with another friend who worked for him a few years before me cleared something up about that though (he may have had rather bad experiences with certain NT-ish types before I was hired).
    I know an ENFJ (somewhat unsure about the "N" though) at work, he's all around cool.

    I like em. Layered personalities that get more interesting as you dig deeper, a quiet strength, thoughtful, and surprisingly sociable for introverts.

    Great, nice people but, some of them, when depressed, have a tendency to mire down their close friends along with them. In addition, some of them do tend to downplay their friends' problems in relation to their own. 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.
