    Default Gay INFP's?

    I was reading various INFP posts on this site, and all the relationship-related ones only seemed to mention heterosexual relationships.

    I met a woman once who I think was an INFP. We talked for several hours before we had to reluctantly part ways, and I never saw her again, but I will always remember being absolutely amazed and enthralled by her.

    She turned out to be straight, so I put romance out of the question, but I still was just incredibly attracted to her personality.

    What are the chances that, if I actually meet another INFP female, she'd actually be gay too *and* we'd both be attracted to each other?

    Statistically, I'd say the odds are REALLY slim. next to nothing. But that's because as far as I know, that one woman was the only INFP I've ever met. She was at least the only one I have ever gotten to know, but it was a pleasure.

    Are there any gay people in these forums?

    I think all infp's are a little gay.

    I know of a handful, but I don't think any are INFPs.

    What are INFPs in the population? 3-4%? So that's maybe a little over 2% of them being female? So if you had 200 gay people on these forums, chances are maybe 4-5 of them would be gay female INFPs.

    Chances of that could be pretty slim...

    I'm gay and I'm also an INFP. I'm not a female, though.

    Cool, thanks for the replies... I was just feeling a little lonely out here, lol.

    Male or female, it's just nice to know there are others out there like you.

    HEHE!

    I just went camping with a whole bunch of lesbian introverts. It was truly a blast! Great fun with great people...

    What I'm trying to say is that you may find your love yet! It's far from impossible to find another INFP you are attracted to... but don't limit yourself. Kindness and a good heart aren't related to type...

    Oh...I'm a boy. Just to clarify.

    depending on where you go, I'd say the chances of finding a gay INFP female are quite high. INFP's may be a small portion of the population but we are heavily concentrated in certain places....also, I don't think gay INFPs are rare. I personally think bisexuality and a general willingness to be open about sexuality are more common among NF's (maybe NT's too).

    I am SO gay but not INFP. A close friend meets both criteria and is partnered with an INTP.

    The chances of meeting someone of that particular type who has all the same characteristics of the person you met are slim, no doubt. However, if you just isolated those characteristics, I'm sure you'll find several women (of multiple types) who possess those characteristics.

    More importantly, you will find chemistry again, with someone (or several someones) equally wonderful, without doubt.
