    Default INFP females

    I've recently met one and I can notice the "NF" in her. She is just so meek and coy it's hard to understand the real "her". Anyone have any info about INFP females they can share with me? I'd rather get advice from an active forum than reading sites on the internet. They can make me feel like this guy--->:steam:

    I don't have much to say besides be careful around a lot of subject matter that could be sensitive. Since NFPs have strong values they'll fight for them. I tend to accidentally piss off more NFPs than any other type. (Besides ESTPs)

    I think it would be best if you asked specific questions and then INFP could answer.

    As an INFP, one thing I love to talk about is possibilities. In trying to understand her, ask about her goals and ideas. Once you start talking about something she cares about, she probably won't be "meek" anymore. INFP's just don't say much unless it's a topic they care about. We're not big fans of small talk -- in fact, we find it extremely boring!

    Mhm! I see this with all the NFPs I know, unless it's one of their current obsessions they probably wont be too interested. I cant stand small talk either. Maybe it's an NF thing.

    I think it is an N thing, and even more so with introverts, and even more so with Fi (Fe might be more considerate of what others want to discuss).

    It's like a wall. It's hard for me to contribute. Non-sequitors are the only way out!

    I agree with what was said about small talk - decent conversation is the key. Its better to, say, ask what she thinks about a particular current issue. Its even better if you engage in (polite and respectable) discussion/debate as long as you listen and acknowledge the validity of her views. We like to be mentally challenged a little. The best dicussions I've had are ones where we the conversation just flows fluidly and naturally without a particular direction from topic to topic. INFPs have a wide generalised interest in many subjects because we can find something of significance in most things. And the more perspectives and variety of information the better. Anecdotes, pieces of trivia, social observations, interesting articles/documentaries you have read/seen on the subject - throw it all in.

    Its best to be yourself - don't show off or try to impress her to much. INFPs can sniff out when they're being fed a line at 20 paces. We like when the situation is relaxed, natural and non-confrontational - it makes us more likely to open up. Don't come on too strong. A casual friendly atmosphere lends itself to a romantic one later down the track.
