    Default The Care and Keeping of Your INFX

    I'd say that INFPs and INFJs are interesting enough that other types need to read a how-to guide on how to take care of us properly. Feel free to post any relational dos and do nots that you assume that are specific to your type. You can also post personal attributes and patterns that you've observed in your relationships. Note that these are guidelines and generalizations, not rules.

    I'll jump into the fray later.

    Hehe. The thing is, I've never considered myself to be that delicate or complex. I think that the instruction "Handle with care" applies to everybody.

    There. People pleaser that I am, I changed it to "interesting." :P Surely you think that you are interesting.

    Eh, I just act like myself no matter who I meet. If they like me awesome, if they don't then oh well. Sure I change my attitudes a bit depending on the person, but keeping a set of special rules to follow seems kind of pointless for a friendship/romantic thing. If I need to somewhat significantly change how I act or do things for a particular person, then I probably shouldn't be friends/in-a-relationship with that person. Maybe a set of notes would be good (ex: If an INF acts X way, then this could mean Y).

    Something like this in the workplace could be pretty cool though.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    If an INF has a cold nose, then this could mean that they've caught a cold.


    I don't know, I see that people are so different, regardless of type, that there cannot possibly be any universal guidelines.

    I'd agree with that

    INFX people are really complicated for no reason a lot of the time. If you look at other types, they get along in the world just fine and aren't complicated.

    The trick is to break these traits and become normal. But a lot of people won't do that. I don't see how being complicated, overly emotional and hyper sensitive are good traits.

    If you aren't like that then great!

    There are advantages to these traits in reasonable doses, but you can't let them run rampant. It is immature for me to say: "I'm sensitive. Now, I have the right to throw a tantrum." Instead, I need to think thing such as: "As a sensitive person, maybe I am overreacting to this situation. Maybe I should look at it objectively" OR "I need to set proper boundaries in this relationship so that I don't get hurt." Etc.

    Thus, overthrowing Meyer-Briggs. XD I understand that there will never be foolproof rules. It's just fun to compare similar types of people and see where it leads.

    Yup, overthrowing Me and my skepticism.

    And I agree with you that it is fun to compare types
