    If you want rigid about ethos, look at INFP.

    I'm flexible in a sense, but I think that I know what you mean. By enforcing policies in an organization, I've learned how to operate in the infinite shades of grey inbetween the bright lines; a good rule of thumb that I developed is to exercise my humanity whenever I have an opportunity to do so.

    However, part of me would die inside if I ever compromised my personal ethics. For example, I'm incapable of keeping excess change from a careless cashier; whenever I try to rationalize it, I see right through my own B.S. and give it back. I expect that's the kind of rigidity that you're talking about.

    You got me stuck there for a while. Tis what I get for trusting my Ni too much hmmm. I'd base it on their unintentional and quick mood changes which may change the neutral course of their personality.
    Or maybe their ability to read someone like a book and adhere to the persons liking.
    Ask the INFJs themselves and they'll probably tell you that they change unintentionally during their social interactions.
    What you see on the outside may not be what's on the inside.

    INFJs are good at picking up people's true intentions, I'll give you that.

    They do not however, change their personalities in any way. They tend to be accomodating to people's quirks, but they do not change themselves.

    I did notice that ENFPs tend to mimic people's body language and their facial expressions, most likely to build rapport. Still though, their apparent "type change" is very superficial.

    Anyway, I think you jumped the gun with that INFJ theory thing.

    If you're speculating that INFJs could have been lying, what makes you think everyone else wasn't lying or mislead or mistested? If it's one type in particular that's mislead about these sort of things it's the INFP, they will see one tiny detail in another type's profile and instantly question their type. "Omg I relate to this line in the INTP profile I'm an INXP!" from the amount of over analyzing they do when it comes to themselves.

    These "statistics" that people magically come up with for percents of types or percents of intuitives are just fishy and unreliable.

    To put in a different way maybe more of an 'adapt themselves' rather than 'change themselves'. I've often seen INFJs complain quite a bit when it comes to people typing them. They say that 'people' never get it right. Maybe the INFJs mistyped themselves as you mentioned in one of your previous points.
    Perhaps your right though. I may be thinking too much.

    Yeah I knew lying was a bad word to use, too late though. You know what I meant.

    That you are, Mr Ni.

    Ps in general tend to display an outwardly flexible attitude but are rarely willing to question the fundamental bases for any of their internal beliefs.

    The standard NP response: Listen to and humor people with different ideas all day long but rarely consider actually changing your position!

    (NJs, on the other hand, tend to take a long time to open up to the idea of listening to different ideas at all, but once that outer shell is broken are much more internally flexible and willing to seriously consider other viewpoints...not just do them lip service.)
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
