    Default Differences between INFJs and INFPs?

    Lately, I've been wondering if I may be an INFP or not. As you can see from my profile, I usually test as INFJ.

    What are some of the differences between INFJs and INFPs? And when I say this, I mean more generalized descriptions of the two types. I have a pretty good idea of the difference between each function, so don't just say "INFJs plan, INFPs improvise" etc. How do the two types come across differently?

    The stereotype I've picked up is that INFJs tend to be intense and moody, INFPs are more dreamy and poetical. I know that's generalized, but is that accurate in your experience?

    infjs tend toward a general overuse of comas in their writing.

    Jivin' Jeff Jones is a very good source on this one. He's an INFP.

    ...Truth (). I use a lot more commas than I probably need to. I think this is because my ideas are racing through my head and I'm trying to get it all down before I forget it.

    Okay, we can put this down in the official INFJ profile: "Overuse commas, generally"

    Comma-kazi? Ha. INFJs seem pretty wordy in general. I can write essays when inspired, but most of the time I can't be bothered to write very lengthy responses online.
