    Well, what do you think would be the best approach for discussing this?

    well since it was asked of NF's being the question was directed at us, it would have been nice if they actually listened to the thoughts and advice given. Yet they stepped over it like it wasn't even there and disregarded it. I mean if you want to discuss why NF's are as they are from say a factual point of view then fine discuss it in MBTI.

    Oh well, every type ends up being discussed in this manner.

    To be fair, the first few NF answers in here was that it doesn't exist. The discussion that followed was just about why the OP would get that impression... I don't think it was ignoring the NFs in the thread, only that the conversation drifted into a more lingo-ish view of what might explain the impression.

    I didn't deny that NF get into conflict. I said that I don't particularly enjoy conflict but I often feel compelled to assert my opinions.

    I too agree with this statement. And as a perfect example I have asserted myself here in this thread.

    I actually agree with you on this.

    (I know with most INFPs I've known, they use such general terms and abstractions to avoid friction that I am not exactly sure what the problem is, and I have to basically play 20 Questions until they nod to me and say I figured out what has been bothering them.)
    yes, yes, yes. I had to do this all the time with an INFP friend of mine as well as an ISFP roomate and my ISFJ step-mother (they seem to be very similar IMO). This does not happen quite as much with INFJ's, ENFP's, or ENFJ's. It also does not happen as much with any of the other types I have encountered.

    can you give us an example?
