    I kind of doubt you have anything to be proud of.
    I dunno, I kind of wanna give Runvardh a high five. It's not so easy to bed an INFJ: many have tried, few have succeeded.


    Is it really that unusual for INFJs to engage in meaningless sex at some point in their lives?

    There was one summer in college when I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and decided that I would play the field. It was actually really fun. I dated several guys at once and kept them all from knowing about each other, which was quite a balancing act and led to a lot of hilarious situations that made for amusing conversations with my girlfriends. (For a while I wrote about my exploits under a pseudonym for the college newspaper and had quite a following of readers.)

    Of course, I made it clear to each guy I was dating that I wasn't his girlfriend and that there was no commitment. I would never condone lying. I guess you could say I seduced them but I don't think I had a game plan for seduction or anything like that, I agree with the people who said INFJs are naturally seductive in that we're so responsive to others, make them feel listened to and valued, let them be themselves, etc. I genuinely liked each guy but was just jaded about relationships at the time and didn't want any commitment. I did eventually let go of all the suitors except one because after I got particularly close to one of them I felt guilty and just couldn't date the others anymore.

    Anyway. A couple years later I found myself in the midst of another break-up. I was like, hey, I'll try the playing-the-field-thing again - I'm sure it'll work like a charm just like last time. Totally didn't work the second time! All of a sudden the dating scene made me miserable and playing the field held zero allure. I guess it was just a brief window of time when that lifestyle worked for me. Maybe it was my one summer as my ESTP shadow self

    Good question... I dunno, that thought has never came across my mind... to have meaningless sex. It just feel completely not me. Maybe there'll be a point in time where I'll feel that way but I can't say I've experienced it.

    it comes in waves. i wont date any girls for a while (sometimes years) then i will go through an accelerated period of a few weeks to a couple of months where i am like a revolving door for meaningless sex. the act wears thin sooner than later and i either go back to being a hermit or get into some relationship where i am taken for granted for a while.

    either way i always end up back in my self-imposed solitary confinement

    But she was desperate. It's not difficult at all to get a desperate woman, of any type...

    Yes, it has to do with inferior Se. Now play on the shadow side, and it's a completely different story.

    i just recently got out of a bad bad relationship. i must say, with elevated intuition levels it is quite mysterious how i could even get into something like this. :O
    but then again, i find myself always very much attracted to unstable, unbalanced ppl that obviously need help... i guess its a helper-syndrom disguised as romantic attraction.

    noticed that a lot of guys think i am arrogant/ mean/ lesbian, just because i will not succumb to their primitive overtness. but yeah, that is what most mating dance type flirts are for me, primitive. hmm...

    decided i would go out n play the field for a while, too, but the more i think of it, the less attractive the idea appears.

    would you say as an INFJ that ppl in need are a prime target to get involved with/ seduce?

    For me it's quite the opposite. Sure, I feel bad for people who struggle with something or with themselves but I decided a long time ago that I'm not going to be their crutch. If people want my help, of course I will help them. But when it comes to relationships, targeting only people who are in need is not my thing. People can only really help themselves and not rely on somebody else to help them. Trying to change somebody who doesn't want to change is never going to happen.

    Actually, I don't target people at all. I like when things just happen instead of being forced to happen. I have a choice whether to be involved with somebody and if that happens, it happens.

    hmm.. i agree with what you are saying, that ppl only can help themselves n that one should not be the others crutch. especially since i got in (and out of) relationship, I have tried to surround myself with ppl that are extremely well balanced.
    I feel so strong empathy to ppl that being too close to someone who is this troubled (as in being romantically involved) destroys all possibility of light and ease. I feel like a sponge soaking up another's bad vibes.

    I have noticed that a lot of ppl misunderstood my natural empathic caring for them (i guess the natural interest that I bring to the table) as interest and tried to get involved with me.

    agree also that things should just happen so nice, so genuine

    Oh yes, I am very familiar with this as well I try to fight it but I guess it's in my nature. I often get an almost unstoppable urge to just hug a person who I see is feeling really down (I don't actually hug people, I try to avoid it like it's the plague). Sort of taking on to myself some of their worries. Maybe then they'll feel a bit better. While still knowing that it won't actually help. It's just a feeling I cannot escape.

    So, I hear you, fellow sponge!

    I feel you guys, I've had my share of bad relationships, situations where my friends were like what-are-you-thinking and even I was like what-am-I-thinking, but at the time I was too enmeshed and felt too emotionally vulnerable to extricate myself when I should have. One in particular where the guy was emotionally abusive. (That's the one where I felt liberated and played the field afterwards.)

    But you live and learn. I learned a lot from each relationship I've had, and in the case of Mr. Emotionally Abusive (in retrospect I think he was a very unhealthy, depressed ISTP... not saying all ISTPs are like that of course), ever since I've been able to spot emotionally-abusive guys a mile away, even when they're in their Knight-in-Shining-Armor disguise (which is a suit many of them wear during courting... then the other person gets taken in and when they go Dr. Jekyll on you you're like, "it must be something I did because they didn't used to be like this"). Anyway, since then I've found that dating very stable, emotionally secure people is the way to go. I would say in general I have my shit together but nonetheless I've learned to accept that I'm a very sensitive, emotional person who does best when I have a stable "rock" in a romantic relationship. I read on some website that INFJs "yearn for a stabilizing relationship," I dunno about others but that is 100% true of me.

    the question itself is flawed. whereas isj types are fact-checkers, inj types are context checkers. we see the connections between everything. this is where we feel most at home, within the world of Ni.

    so it's not some gooey spiritual bullshit when i say this, but everything is meaningful. not profound or beautiful, but composed of millions and millions of tiny connections between things that allows us to turn a situation over like a snow globe or a rubix cube. we see how the situation is constructed, but could be constructed otherwise. when we are F types, we are especially sensitive to seeing how we fit into the situation, what it tells us about ourselves, how our desires reflect who we are and what we stand for.

    we can explore something intellectually, consider a new premise for thought, and be energized by thought to enter something in a very exploratory mindset. for me as an infj, this is always checked reaaaaallll fast by Fe, by doing damage to myself or others, the self of myself or the self of others. violence, not treating people as objects, meeting them on a self-to-self level or spending my time elsewhere. bc ultimately with Ni that's who i am. quality time engaging and engrossing and relating/sharing.

    even in the most pornographic stick-figure fantasies and the people you pass in the street, it always starts to become something more. or it is just so difficult to block out the more more more that everything is made up of and just get to an irreducible hollowed out place from which you can focus all your energies on your inferior function and your inferior function alone.

    the inferior Se makes us want to fuck and seduce and be seduced. goddamn wandering eyes. and consider teh premise of would it be ok, how would it work, should or shouldn't. but the stark reality for me is that such a process breaks down somewhat quickly, my own standards for context-passing, and self-relating are too much for me to be able to fuck a random stranger, or someone like a rat held by its tail at an arm's length distance.
