They have their annoying tendencies to preach to me about what's morally right and wrong. Their romantic talk sickens me especially if it's a male INFP. The INFPs I know are male and I find it quite sad when they talk to me about their feelings and romantic fantasies. Since they are close to me they like to tell me about their most disturbing secrets that would change anyone's view of them the other way around. Plus, I find them intolerable when I try and make a decision that they disagree with.
I totally agree with this, by the way. It's one of the things I am constantly working on.
Yeah, I think the INFP has the potential to be really selfless and giving, but only for a cause that's worthy. I.E., for someone they really love. Most of the time the INFP does their own thing.
I think that is a reason why some of generalizations don't work with INFPs in that each of us have our own way of evaluating what is worthy and what is not. Let's call it our individual and unique Fis. Unlike facts and logic where everything is black or white, or true and false, there is a lot of grey stuff for me in the way I think. It comes down to how I 'feel' about things, and how I 'feel' would be very different from how another Fi-dom would 'feel'.
For example, I'm a high P so I procrastinate a lot and my table at work is a mess, but I always make it an attempt to be early for meetings and appointments because I value that; and of course being early for meetings means I can find the seat that is most in the corner away from the other people

Reason: After a self-doubt attack, changed "a lot of" generalizations to "some" :)

I do that so I can check the place out, and find a seat where I can watch all the entrances...
Past experience teaches, especially bad experiences.
