    I find that what I attract aren't necessarily creepos, but eccentrics who somehow expect that I would understand them.

    I can't think of any one particular anecdote, but these "encounters" usually involve them telling me their whole lives/ a particular moment in their lives, ending with "I can't believe I just told you that," or "Thanks for doing this."

    Oh yeah, these people are usually those who are involved in some "passion/ cause" of some sort, like one was a student activist involved in labor advocacy, one was a music major. And they seem passionate about what they're doing.

    Did they freak me out? Sometimes, when they'd be too intense and start to kind of shout at me. I just wide-eyed in front of them and nod slowly. They seem to interpret that as "Yes, I understand."
    Yes, I take it with no cream and no sugar.

    And yes, some of us drink it bitter.

    Wish I would attract any people at all.. Might be an idea to keep my eyes open more..

    Counting on two fingers, it would be either someone way too normal, or someone who is funny/experimental (but when you face her says 'How is anything not normal? Why would you do anything that's not normal? Am I then not normal?'; i.e. ISFP, or so I guess).

    But regarding the question about INFPs, there is something about that, yeah. I notice it in one of my friends.

    I think that any type that counts empathy and great listening skills amongst their strengths is going to attract 'unusual' people. These types of people by definition are out of the loop with most people and so whilst they may be able to socialise in society they will struggle to find a connection because they are just so rare and that is where the INFP comes in!

    i think something about INFPs in general that may attract unusual people is the blend of the "i really want to help other people" vibe paired with the "i have been judged/written off/outcast before, so i won't do that to you" vibe.
    thankfully it seems we also have a tendency to find a way to totally disappear when a situation gets dicey enough..

    Basically, my story of life

    when I told some of my closest friends about what kind of experiences I've had experienced, they'd abruptly call 'em such "crazy unbelievable experiences" , or encounters, that they wouldn't easily able to do!
    but little do these people know, that my work-daily life COULD become only a 'normal-boring-routine' life, if I were to do it the standard, 'NORMAL' way as well!
    fortunately, somehow, I have always been 'famous' for going "out of the loop" (as the previous posters mentioned above), and/or "gone off to strange, weird places", and as a result, met, or make friends with eccentric/'weird' people as well!

    to mention a few:
    1. I've had 3 homosexual friends. my INTJ cousin never got such experiences! and guess what, I'm actually quite thankful for that, because these friends of mine usually have their unusual NEW life, that made my life much more interesting too as a result!
    (then my INTJ cousin would rant of how "boring" his life had been, because he's not, and also can't be as 'adventurous' as me )
    2. I've made friend with a person who just got out from jail, 'bout 8 years ago, when I was still studying in LA. and surprisingly, we can 'connect' really well. to this day, i'll never forget him!
    3. I've made "friends" with many, many different type of people from various type of life,
    from the rich, down to the gutter-poor kind of environment/background!
    there was even a group of these 'poor' people, asking me in a thoughtful way "why do you want to make friends with me?" ,..because they said, if it were "other" people, with my kind of race/ethnicity and economic/financial status, they wouldn't even talk a word with these 'poor' people! but I just simply replied to them "because I ENJOY hanging out with you guys! and that's enough reason, isn't it? why all the race/ethnicity/economic/financial 'barriers' created??"
    4. about 2 years ago, I went to Japan by myself, ALONE. and I've gone through subways, to the highest temple that people rarely ever go, and made friends with 'eccentric' people from Japanese musician-student, to a random FUN girl, to a Zen practicioner (he's an American) at the highest temple!
    5. I could easily ask a 'random' stranger whom's waiting on the bus line, or sitting at the park, etc etc. basically, I actually LOVE to able to meet eccentric, unique people as well.

    This is NOT without weakness though..
    because admitedly,
    I've noticed that I've always tried to avoid these kind/type of people:
    - 'normal', ordinary people
    - what i would termed as "boring" people
    - the 'corporate-workalholic' type
    - the kind of people who only do brags, and talks about their jobs, their businesses, then their jobs again, then businesses again, and so on. ohh, i hate this the most!
    - people who only listen to "normal mainstream" stuff of music (beats me, but the kind/genre of music a person listen to usually, I'd find, very-much related with the kind of lifestyle, or what personality the person might has! ).
    - and since I LOVE and passionate about music soo much, the WORST possible people that I'll try to avoid is those people who can't and don't appreciate Arts, the beauty, and depth of it. and those who only see Arts in terms of $$$$$ (ie: MONEY)! urgggh, i also hate this a lot!

    Because we're shrinks.
    Naturally we attract people with issues.

    Default INFP's innocence and naivety luring corruption

    I don't know why, but I swear I attract trouble like honey attracts bees. It is beyond ridiculous. I'm glad I don't go clubbing or to bars much because god knows the levels of weird crap that would increase 10 fold. Do any other INFPs feel this way?

    I just feel like weirdos prey on me constantly. I'm a very assertive and confident person, but it's like they can smell my idealistic, timid insides or something... *mumbles and grumbles*
