    i'd say at school, INFJs are the go-getting camp counselor types and model UN kids whilst INFPs can be found masquerading in any and every group.. Ironically, I think most of those 'emo' and 'anime kids' are probably just other types romanticizing and masquerading as INFPs

    INFPs have a goofier and very imaginative sense of humour and are more likely to have more gears in between serious and joking modes of communication.
    these i resonate with as being very true!

    I already linked this old topic (INFJ vs INFP --which is more forgiving?) in the newer 'INFJs & Forgiveness' thread, however I had made a post in it about how my INFP boyfriend and I differ in our attitudes on forgiveness and it seems relevant here as well (i.e. too lazy to recontribute) :

    If "forgiveness" is being likened to "tolerate" then he can withstand the company of those he dislikes longer than I by simply ignoring whatever spills out of their mouth and then staring off into space. But if "forgiveness" means understanding or accepting someone who has done wrong, I am more capable of seeing their P-O-V even if I disagree and just disregarding the social road-bumps I'm unconcerned with.

    Arguably, he appears more forgiving than me given his lax demeanor, but if pressed to be honest you'll find he cannot shake his prejudices. Outwardly, I probably seem more unforgiving given my scrutinizing behavior, but if pressed (with points that are valid to me) I can spontaneously make an about-face to the astonishment of my intimates.
    Added note: If you'd really like to get to the nitty gritty differences, feel free to PM me. My INFP boyfriend and I have been friends and together off/on for nearly a decade and we know a great deal about each other. 'Heart' is also a good source of information because she's an INFP married to an INFJ.

    Agreed. The emo trend seems very ISFx to me. INFPs are not that open with emotion usually.

    Anime is for most any nerd of every type

    I think INFJ sense of humor depends on current mood and relationship with the person telling the joke. I know my response to someone I'm not friends with joking around with me is usually a blank stare.

    Now, if I do feel like joking around...I think the username says it all.

    INFJs are curious to know how people work and ask questions to flesh out their understanding of a person so they can better prepare for how to deal with them. INFPs tend to take things in as they come without trying to direct the interaction or plug the new details into a preexisting structure in their minds. They are more likely to filter things through the lens of their own personal experiences.

    INFPs are often less practical in every day matters and sometimes have a tendancy to avoid dealing with problems. INFJs do that when they are overwhelmed by details, but generally like to face problems more directly.

    INFPs are less emotive and appear dispassionate compared to INFJs. However, they are much more passionate under the surface in some regards. INFJs are more emotive, and given the right circumstances passionate express it. While they have layers, they are likely to want someone to understand everything about them inside out. INFPs seem to like some privacy and operate more internally. INFJs need to discuss things with people to organize them in their own minds, while INFPs take in information but do not need people's input the same way to decide how they feel about something.
    I think these ones are more obvious when I compare myself to the INFP's I know.

    One other thought: Myself and the INFJ's I know are very active listeners, and will really focus on the other person who is talking, and give feedback or other sorts of cues (head nods, facial expressions, reactions to what they're saying, whatever) to let the other person know we're listening and focusing on what they're saying. I believe this is an element of Fe. One thing I have noticed with the INFP's I know is that when I'm talking, they make very little eye contact and they often aren't looking at me, and are looking down, or around at other things...which to be honest is distracting and makes me think they aren't even listening or paying attention!! It's not that they're not...it's just that it makes it so I don't KNOW whether they are or not. (And the usual caveat that this doesn't mean all INFP's are like this)
