    So true. The older I get, the lazier I seem to get, or is it just an internet addiction.

    If they're physically able to and know what a light bulb is and have a spare one around I suppose it would just be one. And a chair to stand on. Or is it a nightlamp?

    Right.

    They'd feel guilty about replacing an old bulb, so they'd ask someone else to do it for them.

    But their request would be so abstract and tangential that the other person wouldn't understand exactly what they wanted.

    Then they would say "Oh, that's OK. Nevermind. I don't want to bother you"

    Then they would curse the other person in their mind, and blame the other person for MAKING them replace the bulb.

    Then they would either shut the other person out of their life completely, or vacillate between loving and despising that person forever.

    Then they would bury the old bulb with an elaborate funeral ceremony, complete with poems and eulogies, and smile to themselves, knowing that the old bulb is "in a Better Place now."

    Is this your take or experience on INFP-ENFP relationships? And besides, personally I prefer the word "orthogonal", tangential is just so 2-dimensional, maybe 3 dimensional. One could go with "normal at the surface", but please what INFP is normal at the surface? "Infinite dimensional complete Hilbert space", now that requires usage of the term "orthogonal". Hey, where did the nerd smiley go?!?!? I guess I'll just have to settle for this.

    Alternate answer: INFP thinks about changing light bulb, goes to look for a spare, gets distracted by very interesting tangent, starts philosophizing about said tangent, starts telling you about philosophizing of said tangent, realizes doesn't have any spare lightbulbs since that would be too practical and would have required foreplanning.

    I also have an ISFJ for a mommy. She would then promptly tell my dad to change it. He is much taller than her.

    Yeah. So it's 1 INFP.

    1. Go to grocery store.
    2. Buy light bulb.
    3.... Wait, do I get an old incandescent bulb or a new fluorescent bulb? I can't make a decision now without such critical information!!
    4. Go home and hop online to research.
    5. Open up TypeC, waste 3 hours.
    6. Come nighttime and darkness, stub toe on furniture. Resolve to fix it tomorrow.
    7. Research pros/cons. If necessary, use spreadsheets to mathematically determine how long it would take for fluorescent to be profitable.
    8. Go back to store, buy lightbulb.
    9. CRAP! They are out of the lightbulb I wanted to buy! What do I do now?!? I can't buy an unresearched bulb - not after all the work I've put into this!
    10. Go home.
    11. ... 2 weeks later, stub toe again. Possibly break it.
    12. Go back to store, buy lightbulb, and make a side trip to Dairy Queen to buy a Blizzard as reward.
    13. Analyze light fixture. Try to change lightbulb without ladder.
    14. After 5 minutes realize that it's not quite going to work. Spend 30 seconds grabbing a chair.
    15. Change lightbulb.
    16. Resolve not to wait so long next time.

    Yes, that sounds a little more likely. An INFP would make themselves do it, they'd just use Si and Te very, very badly in order to do it. Maybe not THAT badly, though.

    I'm so impressed, you do it in only 16 steps?! I usually end somewhere around 20.
