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 agree with this. The type that is a social chameleon is INTP. They're the hardest to spot because in certain social situations they will mirror people.

And of course, Myers Briggs is a big relief to Ns with mental issues. So I see a lot of people with mental issues using a particular type as an explanation of their abnormal mental states i.e., "I'm not schizoid bipolar, I'm just an artistic INFP, lol", or "INFJs are the rarest types, no wonder everyone in school always thought I was a mental case". Some people mistype themselves because they read some crude type-explanation and think "It says here than INTJs tend to be cantankerous assholes. Hey, I'm a cantankerous asshole. I must be an INTJ!"
And thus you get all these people causing general type confusion.
Yes this seems to be true. Also I think sensors with mental issues will test as Ns. Well Ns aren't in the concrete world as much as sensors. Isn't this especially true for INFJs due to inferior Se?Wouldn't this be an easy mistyping for sensors with problems. Therefore, INFJs have the largest number of mistyped sensors with mental issues in the group. :P (The last sentence is a joke.)
