    After reading this thread I must say you ENFPs have x-ray vision when it comes to us INFPs. Nice to know someone can pierce our weird outer layers a bit.

    I question everything. I am submissive if it doesn't really matter, but if it does, I'm not.

    I react to it, depending. It's not something I recommend.

    Rarely, but I used to be.

    Often. It's a good defense.

    covertly rebellious.

    I bottle it all up like every man should.

    If you are an INFP:

    How do you respond to authority figures in your life? Do you generally question authority or are you pretty submissive?

    I constantly question authority. I always try to analysis their motives and to what end they are trying to accomplish.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?

    It depends, if it's something that violates my values then I argue back. But even then to a point, because if I feel that arguing back will result in an endless circle of non sense I'll just stop.

    Are you very emotionally reactive? If so, are you emotionally reactive in public or just with those you are comfortable with?

    I am emotional reactive. The best example is sports. When I watch sports I am very verbal and outspoken, in other words I yell and scream at the TV. I am more emotionally reactive with those I am comfortable with, I am reactive in public but not as much (for obvious reason of trying to not embarrass myself).

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?

    This I am not sure, but I feel like I dont. I feel that most of the times, I am fine figuring out and doing things on my own.

    Are you really sarcastic?

    Yes all the time. Some people take this as condescending sometimes...

    Are you silly?

    Yes, but more to make the situation more comfortable and friendly. I am silly mostly with people I am comfortable with, or if I feel friendly with.

    Were you shy as a child?

    No I was not. I was always in trouble for "talking too much," or being too social in class to where I was not paying attention to school work.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?

    Sometimes, but as someone pointed out, it's a great excuse. I am fully aware at all times of people's intentions but I act quietly if I feel that I really dont need to speak up.

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?

    No. People have said I am loud, and talk a lot.

    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers?

    No. Even my teachers, felt and have told me over the years that I was mentally more mature than most of my classmates.

    Are you a talented writer?

    Not to where I would say I am talented, but I love to write even as early as I can remember. Writing is a release to me.

    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)?

    I am not sure if this is a real thing, but I want to be a Business/Industrial Psychologist where you help businesses understand their employees from a mental and emotional stand point. Help companies develop ways to encourage harmonies and productive work environments while satisfying worker's mental and emotional growth.

    If you are an INFP:

    How do you respond to authority figures in your life? Do you generally question authority or are you pretty submissive?
    I usually question the validity of authority and if I should listen to them or not. Despite this, I am pretty submissive but I will quietly disagree with them and do something a bit different.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?
    It depends on my mood but sometimes I find it humourous but at other times, I feel offended.

    Are you very emotionally reactive? If so, are you emotionally reactive in public or just with those you are comfortable with?
    I'm not usually emotionally reactive in public because I dislike too much attention shown towards me and as a result, most people see me as a calm and easy going person. If I'm alone or someone I'm really comfortable with then I can be emotionally reactive.

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?
    I've never been in a romantic relationship but in other relationships, I don't think I require that much attention as long as they will listen to me with an open mind.

    Are you really sarcastic?
    Yes, I can be really sarcastic.

    Are you silly?
    Only if I feel comfortable around the person or people.

    Were you shy as a child?
    Yes, I was very shy. I was so shy that when my teacher was playing a personality game and asked the shy people to stand up I stood up half way and then sat back down because I was too shy to stand up and let people that I was shy which they already knew I was. Hehehehe.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?
    Sometimes.

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?
    Yes, I tend to use made up words to express myself and not finish my sentences.

    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers?
    Sometimes yes, sometimes not. Actually, mostly not.

    Are you a talented writer?
    I don't know. I don't think I am but I do love writing.

    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)?
    A director (who is also a screenwriter). I would love to see my crazy ideas come to life and it'd be great if my films resonated with someone. Human behaviour and emotions will probably be something that will be explored in most, if not all, of my films.

    If you are an INFP:

    Generally positively. Used to question authority a lot in high school, now I respect it much more and somewhat submissive.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?

    I get really defensive/pissed/anxious.

    Are you very emotionally reactive? If so, are you emotionally reactive in public or just with those you are comfortable with?

    In what way? I never cry around other people unless it's due to ridiculous amounts of physical pain. If I need to cry (which is extremely rare of me - I can count the number of times on one hand), I will move away from everyone to be alone.

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?

    Yes, although I think it's a little less than it used to be.

    Are you really sarcastic?

    Sarcastic as in cynical? Now that I think about it.. around extraverts more so than with introverts or people like me - I can be more genuine around them.

    Are you silly?

    Yes, very much.

    Were you shy as a child?

    From what my mom tells me: yes.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?

    Maybe. I've only been told by someone to get off my "high horse" once and that really made me resent said person.

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?

    Kinda.

    I sometimes (somewhat often) will think I described something well to someone and then they'll respond with "that didn't make any sense" or "what are you talking about?" or just "what?"

    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers?

    Nope. I've always felt older. My mom kinda helped propagate this belief of mine by describing me as an "old soul." What the fuck does that mean, anyway?

    Are you a talented writer?

    Meh. Not as talented as some of my peers but I'd say I'm top 40 percentile.

    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)?

    No idea.

    possibilites:
    -psychologist
    -acting?
    -who knows

    If you are an INFP:
    How do you respond to authority figures in your life? Do you generally question authority or are you pretty submissive?

    This depends on if the authority figure can give me a good reason to follow them. If I have what I deem an acceptable or morally right or sensible reason than I'll be pretty submissive...until they want me to do something ridiculous. In all other cases I am generally resistant and dubious but only rebellious and dissenting if I feel that the leader is morally compromising others or asking me to morally compromise myself.

    How do you respond to someone talking down to you?
    Badly. Ignore them first, or if they catch me on a bad day respond with something scathing. Can get pretty worked up over something like that.

    Are you very emotionally reactive? If so, are you emotionally reactive in public or just with those you are comfortable with?
    Depends on what just happened, but I usually wait until I'm alone or with a person I trust very well to be my natural emotionally reactive self.

    Do you need a lot of attention in relationships?

    Maybe? I don't enter into a lot of relationships. I try not to be demanding but if I let myself be myself in one I would be.

    Are you really sarcastic?
    Somewhat

    Are you silly?
    Somewhat

    Were you shy as a child?
    No, that came with adolescence.

    Do people mistake your reservedness for aloofness?
    I'm not usually reserved, but when I am, yes.

    Do you have a hard time expressing yourself verbally?
    Depends on the language, lol. Not usually.

    Have you always felt as though you were at the same mental age as your chronological peers?
    No. Though more often recently.

    Are you a talented writer?
    Writer? Yes. Talented? I don't think so...

    What do you want to be when you grow up (career)?
    A good person.

    Do they ever talk too much or too little?
    Neither. It sort of depends on how comfortable they feel around you.

    Do they seem stuck up?
    No, not the ones I've met anyways.

    Do they seem aloof or just quiet and reserved?
    At first they can be quite aloof but as you get to know them they are much more open. Depends on how much you trust them.

    Do you think they come off as emotionally unstable?
    The ones I know are probably the most emotionally stable people I've met. Any type can be emotionally unstable. I think a lot of people would confuse their sensitivity with emotional instability. To me they just come off as very empathetic, and there's nothing wrong with that.

    In general, how would you profile a male INFP?
    I only know one male INFP. Very in tune with other people's emotions. Amusing in their own quirky way. Very caring. Worries about other people a lot. Creative and imaginative. Doesn't have a lot of self belief (which is frustrating because they should).

    In general, how would you profile a female INFP?
    Based on how my INFP sister behaves, comes across as calm, laid-back and very reserved. But if you search deeper there's a very loving personality. Very imaginative, often goes into her own little world. Not anywhere near as apathetic as she comes across.

    What do you think of INFPs as coworkers, subordinates, or authority figures?
    They're pleasant folk. In positions of authority I think it would be easy for them to get walked all over by bigger personalities though.


    How do you view INFPs in romantic relationships

    Ideal partner. Geniunely caring. Loves very deeply, there's never a time where you feel unloved or doubt that they care at all. Can tell them anything as they are very accepting. Can be quite private and they shove their feelings to one side to focus on others, sometimes to the point where they neglect their own needs. Very romantic, have a knack for making you feel special. I think everyone should have their very own INFP
