    I've seen it said before that a clingy INFP is a no-no. Any advice for an INFP that has a dominant sx variant (Enneagram) on how to be... less clingy/possessive of those close to them? Opinions?
    Look into "ISFJ"

    -----

    I don't think an immature INFP is any worse than any other immature type. My worst nightmare is immature ExTx types.

    An immature INFP will appear one of two ways, usually:
    1. moody, self-absorbed, cynical and overly idealistic, romanticizes flaws, elitist, withdrawn, too sensitive, critical (probably enneagram 4)

    2. too "nice", too passive, feels victimized, extremely conflict avoidant, low confidence, seeks pity, too sensitive, no ambition, no sense of self, deluded optimism (probably enneagram 9)

    These extremes basically amount to "mean INFP" vs "fluffy INFP".

    That's on forums....IRL, an INFP woman is far from fitting society's idea of women (read: ESFJ). But I don't doubt that being an IFP man is rough - it's pretty opposite of the male ideal (read: ESTJ).

    I have a gay man fetish. You really shouldn't have told me that.

It is not that no one likes them, probably that fits not at all, but they don't seem to be the ones you want to be with all the time, which makes relationships and close friendships difficult and more rare.

    At the end we all like the persons and not their types I think, but I am suspecting a tendency that life of an INFP guy isn't that easy. Or I just project from myself in that.

    The reasoning for it must be complicated, if this would be right. Maybe the stereotype of an INFP just doesn't go well with the stereotype of the typical man in society, but much more with women?
    INFP guy = great

    There. I said it.

    I think the whole "this type is ok as a female but not a male" is just being unwilling to accept people who don't fit a mold. An INFP female fits the mold vs an INTJ female who prob gets told the males are ok but not the females.

    I was told so many times that D and D was a tool of the devil, while growing up, then I found out what it actually entailed....I've never been so disappointed in my life.

    As an aside, why are there so many threads about who likes INFP's? And whether INFP's like INFP's ATM? I come in peace
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    I love the INFPs in my real life. Online, sometimes run into some misunderstandings, but that's to be expected given the medium.

    My childhood best friend is an INFP She's amazed me with her boldness over the years. Very brave in the face of extreme adversity. I don't think she knew she had it in her until she was forced to face reality, but she showed the strength of an army when push came to shove. I've seen similar traits in the other INFPs I've known, and I admire your ability to know how you feel so damn well haha!

    When I require feeling-advice (on friendships, relationships, community/cultural issues, etc.), an INFP is often my first stop for gaining knowledge and clarity on the matter.

    I think you guys sometimes underestimate your own abilities to your detriment. It helps when you have a strong support network, and especially a significant other who understands and loves you unconditionally. That's where you guys thrive. I think your sense of humor comes out best when you're hanging out with close friends. You pay very close attention to the emotional atmosphere, and seem to get effected by the physical atmosphere as well...like, it can inspire you guys to create art and write, or to close up and run away.
