    I have very little drama in my life, but I do attract weirdos (the bad kind) and people who want to take advantage of me (particularly in business dealings). I'm much better at smelling out their BS than they expect, which is probably why the drama is kept to a minimum. But yeah, the weirdos love me.... and I guess I also look like someone who would want to buy swampland in Florida. Weeding them out is tiring enough...I can't imagine if I fell for it...or really, I can imagine it because I have been the victim of my own idealistic naiveté, but it's not very often.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I'm the opposite. I feel like my life is an absurd black comedy (slow paced, though, but dramatic) or something, but I don't seem to attract weirdos that much.

    Thus my study of deviance! What helped me the most was learning the difference between positive and negative deviance. Learning its function in society. Studying sociology helped me more than any psychology class could have on this one. I began to see how to clearly identify trouble before I had a hunch and I was in the middle of a situation.

    I know when I was 17/18 I'd often get women in their 30s and 40s making unaccountable conversation with me in bars. I thought it was just because they were being friendly and I looked safe, then my friends would tell me later than they were hitting on me fairly blatantly. So either I was too naive to spot the come-ons or too naive to realize my friends were pulling my leg.

    I know that when I walk down the street I seem to be the person inevitably singled out by people looking for donations. Oxfam, Wilderness Society, Guy Just Needing $2 To Catch A Bus Home Coz His Wallet Got Stolen. Must be the hair.

    Not the same thing as the OP though. Genuine weirdos seem to gravitate to women, I've noticed.

    Sorta.

    ESFPs also attract trouble, and ENFPS too.

    Yeah, I lure weird people like the light lures moscitos. Many people I or no one wants to be around with somehow come to me. Though, if I really don't want to be with such a person, they seem to realize it after some time.

    Interesting thread...

    I'm currently writing a thesis on the ins and outs of corrupting INFP's :P

    Now why doesn't that surprise me? ENTJs scare the crap out of me.

    I think it's the eyes. Whenever I make eye-contact with ppl from the charities, they just seem to know that I'm too soft-hearted to just ignore them and walk away.
