You know, I'm beginning to have a theory here.
Every single male INFP I have EVER met has mother issues. Some are more severe than others; they all seem to have them, though.
I'm wondering whether that is key to developing the male INFP psyche?
Manipulative, controlling, absent...whatever the damaging characteristic may be, they all have mothers who were deeply influential in their lives in a negative fashion.
Some of them have come to terms with that fact; some have never gotten over the hold that their mothers have on them. Some are even somewhat Freudian in their relationships with their mothers.
I've actually known quite a few more male INFPs than most people ever get to know. Part of it is my natural tendency to seek them out; I know what I like in the menfolk, and my best friend has very similar tastes to mine, so we seem to know a good 8-9 male INFPs between us, with even more ENFPs.
Why might this be the case?
