    I come to just expect moral degeneracy out of the great horde of people and I am pleasantly surprised when someone seems to have a good moral fiber. But in offline life I rarely engage my opinions on this to others, what's the point?

    My issue is when people cross my boundaries. Stay on your side of the fence, don't track your filth into my yard...so to speak. Leave me and mine alone, that's fine.

    Offline, I won't discuss religion or politics (which most often just seems like an extension of the former) with most people. I don't see the point. Online I assume it's all done lightly and in good fun and therefore it's not imposing myself on others to engage, they can take or leave my opinions as suits them.

    Oh, I never thought you were attacking me. I was really just pointing out that ISFPs don't like it when their Fi gets stepped on, and they don't try to claim that it's based on some high ethical value, necessarily. That's all I meant. Nothing personal toward you or I.

    I do know what you mean, though. I do openly express my values within intellectual discussions, politics, religion ...I'm not afraid of those topics, especially politics, not religion so much, though, actually.

    First paragraph-

    Quoted one- Yeah I get you. I'm like that too, those are environments where your views are expected to be respected.

    I don't see the direct connection between self-deprecation and being weak-willed.... :confused:
    Flaky generally means unreliable, and I wouldn't pin that as an INFP trait either. We can be disorganized, but if something is important than we pull though.

    INFPs can be very self-critical and our idealism can make us feel letdown in life, but it doesn't make us soft. You know that Nietzsche quote, "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." Sort of how INFPs work. I'd say that we are actually very resilient.

We didn't fight as such, but the tension in the air as we tried to out-stubborn each other, silently, was a force field of tension!


    Try to get an INFP to do something they don't want to do, or are very uncomfortable with and they will evaporate. Just disappear. This is another aspect of that stubbornness.
