    Default xNFP's more elegant than xNFJ's?

    Someone said that xNFP's are elegant and xNFJ's aren't. I disagree. I've always thought that xNFP's have more fairy-like tinkerbell kind of elegance and aura to them whereas xNFJ's have a more angelic Galadriel (from Lord of the Rings) kind of aura. Thoughts?

    That is a really crummy presumption. xNFPs more elegant than xNFJs? That's like saying INTJs are smarter than ENTJs.

    I would agree with what you said, though. xNFPs definitely have a more fairy-tinker bell like aura, and I think Galadriel is an icon of xNFJs.

    To stay on the Lord of the Rings note- xNFPs would be more like a Frodo or an Aragorn, stuck between the good and the bad, lost on the path, wandering into their own destiny with foggy glasses, following their hearts.

    xNFJs have always seemed more wise. Like a Gandalf, Dumbeldore (WHATEVER HIS TYPE IS), or Galadriel. They all have an experienced, mystical, wise and philosophical aura about them.

    It's hard to get across what I meant clearly, so I hope you're catching my drift.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Agreed.

    Thank you for summing it up.

    I have always thought of xNFJs are holy or angelic. Very Angel-like. In my opinion, they really seem like the ultimate perfectionists that know how to manage their emotions and are great mentors and leaders. Very Galadriel-like, Christ-like, etc etc.

    I have always seen xNFPs are more of commoners. Commoners in that we have to face the normal battle between good and evil.

    And I'm not trying to suck up to xNFJs, I'm just stating it as it is.

    I've always thought of xNFP's as the lovely, adventurous princes and princesses. Quite a far cry from being 'commoners', if you ask me.

    That's more of what I meant. And no laughing BC! You're going to make me sad.

    It's like I have one huge idea that I want to get across, but channeling it into the right words is so hard.

    but you said it.

    That wasn't directed toward you OneWithSoul, just toward this thread concept.

    To follow your Fi or to do the right thing.


    That is the question that so often taunts NFPs.


    I think.

    And it seems like for NFJs, doing the right thing comes naturally.

    Probably the dynamics of Fi/Fe. but I don't know enough about the functions to make that claim.

    Tolkien didn't seem to care much for NF's, but at least he threw in Frodo and Galadriel for good measure.

    It's funny though. I find myself wondering how the hell did I fall so in love with such an NT-dominated story when I was younger.
