    Default INFP care the most about themselves ?

    My infp told me today.

    His words were: "Whatever the two of you say, I will only understand what I want to hear and the rest of it will just go poof the magic dragon."

    For me this totally goes against everything I believe in, therefore I count those guys as dangerous to my soullife.

    Am I dreaming or isnt that the whole truth ?

    Sounds like he's just immature. I've had to train myself, but I've learned to take the good and the bad things that I hear in.. you have to process everything.

    Now, when I'm under stress, I only take in things that confirm that I should be stressed and become more stressed because I'm thinking only about things that are making me stressed and then I think about that thing that someone said awhile ago and it makes me more stressed because they must think that I'm a bad person because I'm so stressed because etc.

    Sorry to have to say it , but your INFP sounds like a quivering mass of goo.

    Did he really say "poof the magic dragon?" I go to take Dramamine now!

    That was a very..."stressful" sentence

    INFPs will care the most about themselves depending on how you choose to play with words.

    I don't think your description of the situation is in-depth enough to be fair; it seems really colored by your own opinion without letting things speak for themselves.

    What exactly do the two of you "say?" For example, if you're making small-talk, then I can see your INFP friend justifiably being non-interested in that part of the conversation. Or, does your friend have trouble focusing due to something like ADD? All I'm saying here is that I would need to hear some of these conversations before I would pass judgement on your INFP friend. Although, he seemed to communicate his feelings in a kind of crass response...

    ^ Agreed. A lot depends on the subject matter and the specific conversation.

    Many INFP's I know tune out things if they are too difficult to handle all at once, but those who are maturing learn to listen to everything.

    I think INFPs definitely can be like that. I mean, Introverted Feeling... feeling about yourself. I can see a connection there. I also know some INFPs who have very annoying values that aren't based on anything.

    I would say that I end up processing everything I hear, but I reject and rail against it (at least internally) if I don't like the idea it represents to me. Sometimes even being so obsessed with my disdain for it that I blindly attack several other things that seem like they're related to it, or might open up paths to it. I can't really ignore anything, and that's probably why I find it so hard to put myself in a situation where I might be exposed to something I don't like.

    I can't even tell what he's saying, exactly. He'll only understand what he wants to hear? What does that mean? Is this some lost-in-translation from the German issue?
