    No.



    Since you're an INTJ I'll let you get away with that. I will warn you though that my mother has tried using tears to sway me and has caused me to build up an immunity to it as a form of emotional blackmail.

    Now, this is sort of fascinating. I've known about six INFP males in my life, and they all share some SERIOUS mother issues.

    I'm curious; is a traumatic childhood necessary to developing the full-blown INFP personality? I certainly started off with the mystical bent of an INFJ (and had a wonderful childhood), and then got beaten (socially and metaphorically speaking, and only after adolescence) into being an INTJ. I also grew up in a household full of practical and extroverted types.

    What makes you like you are? And why the are you all so afraid of being emotionally manipulated? It's a VERY common theme with you guys.

    Yeah, I've had that happen to me multiple times. It really sucks...

Also, they didn't suture me properly, and now I'm leaking goo and huggles.

    I don't think that sounds strange at all...I've felt the same way before. I identify with a lot of what you've described in this thread, as I've had very similar experiences with INFP girls in my past, and although I am definitely an INFJ, I almost straddle the T/F line cause I use all those functions pretty much equally (Even long before I got into typology and whatnot, I always noticed that they worked hand in hand, and that I was a lot different in my thought processes than people on either side who had a strong preference.).

    I just wanna encourage you to keep trying whenever you happen to see a good opportunity cause you seem like someone who is very genuine and would be highly appreciated by the right person in a relationship, which I think an INFP could very well be since I've had very much the same feelings about the positive aspects of being so close to one (I could've made basically the same posts about that as you have.), and although the negative aspects of those non-happy-endings definitely hurt, I'm happy for you that it happened (like I was for myself) because now you have a much better idea of what you want and I know that being with someone like that is WAY more than worth all the crap I went through with the wrong ones. I have a wonderful INFP girl in my life who I have a very strong, totally committed relationship with (although unfortunately it's long-distance for the time being), and I can honestly say that there could not possibly be a more perfect match for me than her, and she feels exactly the same.

    So yeah...just keep an eye out for them and you'll strike gold sooner or later.

    Much love and I really hope you feel better and gain a lot from all this....

    I mean, REALLY. All Mr. INFP would have had to do to get me to do anything at all would have been to say "If you loved me, you would make me scrambled eggs and rub my back."

    I would then have proceeded to make him scrambled eggs and rub his back. Because I love him.

    How hard would that have been?

    Experimentation my dear, learn to love it and you'll do well. That's one thing I'm glad I learned from INTPs.


    Athenian said something a few pages back about Fi being our crucial weakness, and I'd like to concur. That is why INTJ's typically have the hardest outer shell of all. People need to know that if they enter, great consequences follow their actions.

    I would say something about turning weaknesses into strengths, and using Fi to "lure" others into Te's grasp, but I suppose that sounds a bit evil...

    Give me some time to think about your prior post. A quick reply, though:

    (1) If you can learn a lesson that you can take into the future, the time will not have been wasted. Today's pain can help you find happiness tomorrow, if you let it.

    (2) We all make mistakes. It may not be as simple as you being wrong about his character, but rather his maturity and strength. Well meaning people can do horrible things if they don't have the strength to do what is right.

    Oh, and add me to the list of INFPs that have had mother issues. Interesting indeed.

    and crabby, you seem awesome... you're gonna be fine

    (though i must say, the idea of being classified, categorized, and dissected makes me cringe!)

    Eh, I had an abused mother so I understand why she is the way she is, but that never negated the nead to protect myself around her. Kind of sucks really; I honestly love my mommy. Then I dated number of other girls who also did the manipulate thing and that turned the scabs into calluses.

    I wish I could find this kind of girl, though with values that jive with mine.

    Well, I'm going to say that THIS is the part where my Rational bits come in handy.

    I'm a scientist by trade, and I'm capable of being reasonable when it comes to other INFPs. In essence, I'm totally rational about my utterly illogical desire for the White Knight...I know what constitutes one, and am perfectly capable of waiting for him. All I need is to be able to IDENTIFY him properly. Then comes the classification, categorization, and dissection.
