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.
    I had serious mother issues. I can detect emotional manipulation to a high degree and it can be a major factor in how I deal with you, if at all. Don't mess with my free will. I am intrigued about the mother angle.

It's a shame I couldn't lead him around by his manparts. It would have been easier!

    Sorry to hear about what you're going through. It's possible this INFP goes into the relationship with good intentions but has a real fear of love and COMMITMENT. If that makes any sense. Imagine an INFP afraid of love. It's true though! I have to admit, this is my downfall when it comes to relationships. The 'love' emotion is rather intense for the INFP and for me it triggers a "fight or flight" sensation. I'm still learning to overcome it. Unfortunately for those I've up an left, I didn't seem to worry too much that I hurt them when I executed "flight". So what appears to be an endless need to be chased... I attribute to a serious need to learn to love without fear. **sighs**

However, this role eventually wears thin more often for us than others (although the F doms may sense it in us before we do) and the requiem mass must be performed.

    Open yourself only to have allowed yourself to embrace during the experience but allow yourself to embrace the whole of it, good/bad and pleasure/pain. The biting sensational bittersweet awakening of being alive. Like long distant skiing/snowboarding and then being allowed to return to the warm cabin of you natural tendencies, as if returning home and comfort to pick up or memoirs, sit down in the armchair by your inner fireplace and add another chapter.

    Am I the only one that thinks all of that kind of stuff sounds kind of cheesy? I hear people talk this way all the time, and it never makes any impression on me.
    Uhh... that's cheesy!!! **gagging**

    And I don't make promises. Unless I am sure I can keep them.
    Yep! Well said.

    You didn't get played, that's rediculous. We are talking about an INFP? Sounds like this guy was head over heels! Trust me, it has more to do with a fear of the commitment leash and feeling smothered by his own loving feelings. This guy needs some space, but it sounds like it's too late for that and he up and left without warning. Unfortunately that's the way it goes. If he's like me, he'll be too ashamed to look back at the aftermath, so he'll close the chapter and move on. His behavior sounds so textbook INFP to me. Ideally you should have given him space when you started to see the warning signs of him backing off. It's when I would need space and my boyfriend wouldn't understand that, so instead he'd bombard me with too much lovey phone calls, flowers, etc.... that's when I would finally make the decision to end the madness. Jeez, I just needed some space sometimes...


    Added:
    The only scenario I can think of when an INFP will appear to desparately want space, but they shouldn't get it, is when there's a conflict in the relationship. Don't let an INFP run away or leave the conflict mad. For most INFP's under extreme stress, they'll pretty much lose all logical thinking abilities. At that point, it would be beneficial for a 'T' to swiftly step in and diffuse the conflict in their calm magical way. ...AND lucky for you, you are a 'T'...which would be helpful, if you get back together with him. F's are pretty easy to reel back in when there's conflict, if you stay calm, nice/firm, keep it light, and be confident... in that order. Whatever you do, do not verbalize any value judgements towards an INFP when they're already stressed out (aka, interpreted by INFP as name calling); just stick to the facts or say something witty. There's an art to it, but I think it's pretty natural for 'T's to pull off. INFP's don't typically care who is right or wrong in a fight; we just want to get rid of the bad feelings ASAP. If we did something wrong, then we want to be assured it is forgiven and forgotten. If you take that approach, I think you will find your INFP to be very forgiving.
