    Default INFJ theme and variations

    I've noticed that there is quite a range of kinds of INFJs.

    Synarch had an interesting characterization of them (eg the delver, the crackpot, etc) in another thread.Others have also alluded to at least 3 different common enneagram types that are often INFJs.* I personally have found in online forums some INFJs that I really identify with and others that seem so far removed, I don't have much that I can relate to.

    If you had to describe any distinct varieties of INFJs that you know what would you call them/how would you characterize them?*

    Also, do you think that the types commonly attracted to INFJs are drawn to INFJs generally, or certain species of them, depending on type?* (eg ENTPs like one strain more while INTJs might like a different strain of them)

    Could you send me the link? I'd rather critique his work than come up with my own.

    I'm trying to remember where it was - somewhere in the Bonfire discussions, but I can't remember where. I'll bet either Sarcasticus or Synarch would remember, if they read this. It wasn't extensive. I think three categories with a one sentence description.

    Too lazy to re-write. Not sure if this is similar to synarch's theme...

    It seems to me that INFJs come in two flavours... Scrap that, 3 flavours.

    InFJ <- very heavy on Fe (ladypinkington is a good example)
    INFj <- I don't mean socionics, light distant affection (Toonia)
    INfJ <- The confusing Ti varient that looks half like INTP, but the J-ness makes the casual acquaintance think you're INTJ.

    The Delver - Has a particular interest and is following it to it's conclusion.
    The Archon - Has a plan for their life and is following it. Constantly optimizing.
    I didn't really identify with any of these as being all-encompassing. I could easily be the crackpot, the delver and the archon. I assume they were written quickly though and need fleshing out to be made more distinctive and comprehensive.

    I totally half-assed that list in about 2 minutes. So, yeah. It's far from fleshed out.

    Thou art too kinde.

    That's going to take some thought and since it doesn't have anything to do with myself it will take a lot more thought than usual. I will think on it during my long drive this afternoon.
