    Yeah..sorry Fluffywolf, I don't think there's going to be a "This is how all INFJ's shop" way.

    I don't like running errands, so I just want to get in and get out as quick as possible, and I'm not really there to strike up conversation. Guess I'm not friendly in that regard, although if someone makes a comment to me I'll smile or make a brief comment in response - but I'm definitely not one to engage. ;-). Grocery shopping is a chore for me. I might look spacey around the vegetables and fruit, deciding what looks fresh and what I really want to get, but other than that, I pretty much know what I'm going to get before I go, and am on a mission to get it done and leave. :-)

    Where to look? Eh...I don't know that generalities are all that helpful. I know several INFJ's and we have varied interests. I don't know that we're the most approachable people though - esp. w/ regards to strangers coming up to us.

    I'd say if you're interested in one thing, then start doing that. Common interest groups are good ways of meeting people.

    We're everywhere (and nowhere), I tell you!!

    c) Is the the one that stares at the vegetables attempting to make a choice for tonights supper?
    d) Is she the one that doesn't do her groceries in the supermarket?

    I'm very serious. I never seem meet INFJ's in real life. Must find out where to look!
    For me: A combination of B and C. I usually have a list with me that I check every once in a while. I'm usually the one grabbing only what I need, not bothering to deliberate much unless it's something like "soup" on my list and I look at the endless shelves of soup and go "Hmm..."

    Agreed with Skyward on the iPod. If I'm not with someone, then I'll have an headphones on my ears. Normally, I shop with my roommates and I can be found to be the one saying really random things that make my roommates shake their heads.

    I also don't like to be in there long if I don't have to be. Lots of people I have little patience for in supermarkets, hence the iPod so I don't have to listen to them, plus I see gathering food there as a minor waste of my time--except for the fact that I need food or I will die.

    So a supermarket is not the best place to approach an INFJ from what it sounds like. Probably because we're in "go away, I'm busy and want to do something less boring" mode.

    Agreed with cascademn. Your chances of running into one you like are greater when you do something you enjoy.

    INFJs are rare. bottom line. and i wouldn't really use behaviors like "constantly looking in her cart" to help you decide her type. that causes instant problems.

    an if its a relationship you seek, never limit yourself to one type. especially if its the rarest lol

    Yes, frequent health food stores and 'organic'/vegetarian/vegan restaurants. You're bound to meet one there.

    Careful, using them as hints could mean you end up bumping into me. You wouldn't want that now would you

    Why wouldn't I want that? You are very interesting as well!



    Anyhow, for a relationship? I'd be lying if I said no, but that's just a tiny part and I wouldn't ever limit that to one type.
    Real reason is that I just feel a sort of connection between INFJ and what I like most in people. So main idea is to get to meet them, befriend them! xD

    Just saying that there's no way of knowing what someone's type is by where or how they shop unless they happen to make it easy for you by wearing a t-shirt with INFJ on it. Im NT yet there are plenty of NF stereotypes I can fit.

    You say you feel a connection with INFJs, so make it easy on yourself and look for a connection not a type.

    Somewhere among the boxes of fairtrade tea and bottles of environmentally friendly washing up liquid.

    Or... get to know lots of ENFPs and ENTPs. As it's easy enough to find these types, you'll find the INFJs lurking somewhere near them. (INFJs are supposedly meant to get on well with both these types).

    Huh, it's verifiable that infjs prefer fewer people and quiet (or at least try to limit distractions somehow) to take care of daily chores, during very early or late hours. I don't know about your questions, threadstarter.
