You know this thread was made 6 years ago, right?Hi, I believe your judgment in thinking the person you know is a infj.
I am a infp, and I have had many several close friend that are infj and I understand what you mean by the sensing thing, the context of the sensing thing is complex because sensing dosed not sound in one musical note of one musical key alone so to say.
There is more than one type of sensing not just the S preference of the MBTI.
But because this question is in the MBTI topic part of the sight we can stick to the MBTI frame work all though the answer in my mind requires the mention of the instincts and the subtypes and primary point of the type within the enneagram model.
But infj first preference is N , second preference is F , third preference is T and last preference is S.
So may people express the fourth preference within there lens they look through out to see the would.
Practise make perfect, keep your eye on the ball , the fourth preference must be exercised and part of the order if we are to act as mature sensible adult human beings.
I think you get the idea.
He is thirty and he maybe interested in contemporary styled thinking, getting on with doing and experiencing, forgive me but he may via his Inner N wish to avoid spending to much time on the emo merry go around of female inner feelings, he maybe wishing to ovoid going down a track into a complexity that dose not match his deep esoteric flavour of inner question.
Who knows but I do know that when a infj has no interest in going down a subject path they are set in there thinking and depending on there instinctual variant type it will require much affirmation that the conversation will be a normal like conversation not a lets go trance y and feel chemistry..
Inner values are good to express in many temperaments more than one ,it makes for interesting conversation that seems to be vital-alive a good to experience experience.
His dominant preference is N he will be able to celebrate good interesting conversation. With out making an escape via the S . Because his F detects more of what he prefers to to partake in.
I hope this has been help full and have a look at ESTP you maybe surprised in finding that the sense you see is an expression of the S in ESTP, I believe we have a core MBTI type and an auxiliary MBTI type, don't be forget to lock out side of the box for clues and answers.
Core ENFP - ISTJ Auxiliary
Core INFJ - ESTP Auxiliary
Cheers and good luck.
