    Default Touchiness

    I want to know if many of the other INFP/Js are like this too. I don't like being touched by people I don't know. I can stand it but I am quite uncomfortable with it. Even those who I would consider pretty close friends I'm not hugely physically affectionate with. It's not that I'm not capable of it. Those people who have gotten into my heart (ie. my family, boyfriends-after-a-time, a select few girl friends) I am very physically affectionate with. I snuggle, hug, hand hold, sit upon, launch myself at. But, until that mysterious and very difficult to reach line has been crossed to someone I can "truly trust" I am not very physical. Even a hug is pretty awkward. This can also make things with guys kind of strained as even a guy touching my hand can end up a big deal, just because my body is my own and I hardly let anyone touch me. Is this normal for any of the rest of you?

    well i really had to think hard to remember a situation where I've been touched by people I'm not very familiar with and I have decided that it really doesn't bother me at all. assuming its in a friendly manner.


    i would like to add tho that i have an istj mother and she is extremely adverse to physical contact, sometimes even from people she is very close to.

    Once an INFP knows you well they seem to really like touching/being touched

    Don't invade their space when you haven't "got close" on that other level

    Which is fine by me cause thats how I feel too, don't like random people or people I don't feel comfortable with touching me

    Seems to be common in introverts or thinking types

    I love to touch and be touched. I can't remember it ever bothering me that someone touched me.

    I used to be like that.

    I love hugs now. From pretty much anyone. I had to build myself up to that, though, and it took a pretty long time.
