    Default How to Bother an INFJ

    Now, I've got nothing against you guys. I usually love INFJs. However, one just broke my [IXFP] friend's heart, and she's asked me to make his life hell.

    So, what, on a general level, ticks you guys off? I need some general goals for my scheme.
    A colleague of the great scientist James Watson remarked that Watson was always “lounging around, arguing about problems instead of doing experiments.” He concluded that “There is more than one way of doing good science.”
    It was Watson’s form of idleness, the scientist went on to say, that allowed him to solve “the greatest of all biological problems: the discovery of the structure of DNA.” It's a point worth remembering in a society overly concerned with efficiency.

    You could trivialize their moral code and expose it for being shallow and meaningless?

    What moral code? :confused:




    To the OP: Invade the INFJ's space and barrage him with trivial chatter. Don't let up. Ask him personal questions and then belittle the answers. Works like a charm.

    Don't pretend you don't have a sense of personally applied ethics! Tear that to shreds and your gooey core is exposed!

    That's assuming that can actually be done.

    That's true, the sun would go nova before many of you open up enough to show anyone the weak spots.

    I do? Thanks for informing me of that. I thought I just did whatever I wanted to.

    I always wonder what's up when an INFJ hurts someone. There's an awful lot going on in the background in those sorts of situations. I would be the first to ask them what their side of the story was.

    Oh, and L. Ashley's answer was the best. Keep invading their space and dont let up; that last bit it the key since we figure ignoring them makes them bored. If that fails it turns into: or :steam:

    Edit: Also, if he isn't mistyped, call him out on what he did to hurt the IxFP. Focus on all the negative emotions it caused for everyone affected (Her, her family, you, et c. You're an Ne-dom, you can figure something out).

    I agree.

    Or, more precisely, assuming the INFJ would give any sort of physical indication/manifestation that it was successfully done. Then, it's just endless pestering, I guess. :]

    The "belittling of deeply held principles" would be successful if you don't launch it too abruptly, I guess. Make him think that you agree with him/ are listening to him and is about to agree. When he gets comfortable with you, pounce.

    Yes, I take it with no cream and no sugar.

    And yes, some of us drink it bitter.
