    Why would you do that? I find you very interesting to talk to. You have a very balanced mind and you understand exactly how to deal with others. Plus you don't run me over with feelings.

    Not really. The INFPs here haven't opened themselves to me which gives us a more healthy discussion (although I doubt it's healthy at all)

    Are you just continuing my quote or talking about your reaction to my post?

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    That's what the person meant.

    You can't write "blah blah bah, you don't even know me,"
    and then turn around and poke an INFP in the eye, who you do not even know.

    You leave yourself wide open for someone to call you a hypocrite.
    And we know Ts "should" value fairness, right?

Anytime anything negative is said, even if it's a typical, by-the-book INFP weak spot, it either gets sequestered off into the corner with those "unhealthy" INFPs, or blamed on mistyping. Every INFP is apparently an exception to the rule (e.g., "but I never foist my emotions on other people like all those other INFPs." Or, "huh, I never take criticism that badly, I must be one of the more healthy INFPs.") Not to say that it isn't true in any individual case. It's just a pattern I notice with INFPs. They seem to bristle defensively whenever negative characteristics of the type are mentioned.
    Yeah, I know, I know, this thread has died a slow death and isn't of much use anymore, but I'm gonna chime in again.

    I think this is true. While most types are going to get defensive when weaknesses/negative traits are brought up (and will get defensive in different ways, as Elaur pointed out in one of her posts), I do definitely notice a trend with INFP's.

    Now I'm not saying being sensitive is a 'bad' trait, as heaven knows I'm pretty sensitive myself, but INFP's seem to be really, really sensitive, and often it appears they take even constructive, relatively benign, feedback in an overly personal way. Certainly it may be understandable, given the way some people communicate, but it does seem to be a trend. I think other types are able to detach (for lack of a better word) better and view critique as more of a constructive thing - not implying the thing being critiqued is inherently bad, it just might be more palatable if honed a bit more, or said trait might be more 'powerful', positive, and useful if wielded/focused in a different way.

    So...hmm...another aspect of this I notice is that Fi-doms seem to have a harder time accepting the fact that there are many equally valid, non-Fi-dom, perspectives out there, and just because one individual doesn't particularly value Fi as a primary means of interpreting/navigating through the world, doesn't mean that person thinks Fi, or the Fi-dom person, is 'bad' or wrong. It's not personal, it's just a different perspective.

    One other thing I've noticed, and I have no doubt this will be taken the wrong way. I think sometimes Fi-doms tend to come across as feeling Fi is the uber-function, the function that is the awesomest of all functions. (I chatted with a friend on here a while back about this phenomena, and she laughed and said it's perhaps analagous to Ti-dom's thinking Ti is the uber-function ) To be honest, that comes across a little...silly. What about the other 7 functions? Are they not equally valid/awesome in their own way? I just haven't recognized this phenomena *as much* amongst the other dominant function users - i.e. Se, Ne, Ni, Fe, Te....

    Pipe down, INFPs. Let the non-INFPs speak.

    Isn't this the "What do INFPs think of what other types think of INFP's" thread?

    But it says outloud a fear INFPs actually have. "Once I get to know you I don't like you"


    This is THE fear that many INFPs harbor, as evidenced by endless postings of such on INFPgc. This is why INFPs may become withdrawn, keep a wall up, hardly talk, never call people, etc.

    If an INFP is close enough to you to whine at all, that's kind of a compliment. On the other hand, if they knew you look down on them for it, they'd probably be mortified and disappear from your life forever. Quite honestly, sometimes I test people. Can you handle the darker side? No? Goodbye! . I will never be close to someone with whom I cannot open up completely. Since people are always confiding to me in person (complete strangers even), I feel it's only fair I am allowed to vent sometimes and be vulnerable.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    + fucking 1

    But on the other hand, I don't resent those people that cannot handle it, or blame them for it. It's who they are, their preference, their choice. As long as they don't come and whine afterwards that I don't let them in, I'm fine with them not handling it well.
