    I think it's an appropriate time for the forum to lobby for a formal reinstatement of the jim crow laws.

    What the...??? haha. That thread was nice to both parties and it attempts to show the difference between FiNe and NiFe. Neither is better than the other.

    Thanks for sharing that post. I consider most of those to be pretty true to my experience.

    It suggests that an INFJ is just an INFP turned inside out (or vice versa if you wanna be annoying about it ).

    Very true. In my experience, this leads to a tendency for INFPs to be optimists and INFJs to be pessimists. Your thoughts?

    INFPs have trouble expressing their feelings, but not showing their emotions.

    True. INFJs will talk about pretty much anything you ask them, but you gotta get to layer 3 or 4 before you can see them express much.

    INFPs come to feel your emotions with you.
    INFJs feel the emotions coming from you.
    Nice.

    Very true.

Your thoughts? haha yeah, I agree with your assessment but the most depressing/pessimestic I've ever met was INFP. It was just because he was stuck in FiSi loop and only used Ne to serve them. Overall though, INFPs are the true optimists.

    Despite the predisposed short comings of being an INFP male, I'm thankful for not being an INFJ male - I think they experience life with a little more difficulty than an INFP male. They're probably the most worst off regarding NF males with INFPs in a close second.
    I may be bested in battle, but I shall never be defeated.

    I think the INFP fits me a whole lot more than the INFJ does- and great thread, this is very accurate!
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Albeit both the INFP and INFJ have their convictions or rather values, they exhibit them differently. If INFP is to a preacher, then INFJ is to a mystic.

    I think INFPs can allow others to perceive them as flexible. INFPs may exhibit their feelings with volatile outbursts although INFJs seem to exhibit their feelings with immutable zeal. I guess the basis of my argument lies on the subjective differences I've noticed between INFJs and INFPs both in life and online regarding values. Although a major core value may come under fire, I still utilize the situation as an opportunity to further evaluate what I've thought of the said thing and what new thoughts come of it. Granted, my body language may not display that (but rather the contrary), but I really do value criticism. I guess in essence, I see an INFP's value system as an immaterial blueprint wheras I see an INFJ's value system as a solid, completed structure.
