    I know that very well. What I'm saying is that people tend to be real &%%&%s when it comes to leaving. Few do it with any grace. I haven't. What I' saying is I'm lucky enough to have been dumped a few times so I know this leaving without explanation or "fair warning" can come from any type. I've never dated any INFJs and I've been ditched in really insensitive ways. Via text message for example. So...you know... Why isolate INFJs in particular when many types are guilty of the same kind of behavior.

    It isn't all about you. Relationships of all kinds are about two people.
    I don't know. Ask my ex-fiancee. Ask the ESTP guy whose parents let me know he'd ran off to Europe when I called him about what time was our date. S%&t happens.

    Well..the ones who didn't call me weren't INFJs...

Therefore a better communication approach is desired and would be more effective for all.

    Maybe that person doesn't trust you either, especially after a door slam. Why not tell the person i don't trust you, and why. Have a dialogue for clarity.
    Look. I'm sorry you had such a terrible relationship but this is just generally relating to the INFJs just run off into the night without a peep and "the other person not having a clue". Some people just don't listen: My ENTP ex, a month after we broke up asked me "Why...it wasn't going so bad...why out of the blue?" I almost choked him there and then. I'd told him time and again " You keep talking down to me, belittling me in company and being an insensitive butt to me for much longer and I'll be forced to leave. I swear I love you but I'll not put up with it any longer" I literally had the conversation with him a hundred times, escalating to me actually screaming and rubbing his dinner plate to the kitchen window yelling "This is the last warning!!!". Then I left a week later cause I'd had it. So he asks me why out of the blue. Was I being somehow subtle? Some people don't want to see the signs, even if it's hurling a chicken leg at you. I'm not particularly proud of my behavior but I still wouldn't call it very indiscreet.

I think I'm generally pretty perceptive. If someone's immature and act accordingly that's what they are, but I think INFJs are "seers" in the way that INTJs are "seers". We're good at making predictions. And that is implied by neurological research. Those areas of the brain that are used for predicting future outcome are the ones INFJs and INTJs use well. ESTPs are good at risk assessment. Do they always win? No. but I get what you mean: If you read INFJs are good at foreseeing events and run off to buy a "Professional Psychic" sign you might run into "unforeseen" trouble. Or if someone reads the INFJ description and thinks we're all kind sunshine and rainbow bunnies. I'm not. ...well maybe a little. (don't tell anyone)

    I am all for people doing what they gotta do relative to basic responsibilty to a situation. It isn't tough to tell someone you are moving on without them and why, so that both people are clear on facts. If there are major loose ends, that person does not get to move on as they wish. Those things don't take care of themselves.

    I'm not very passive aggressive in general but I get it and can accept it part of the time. But no not when leaving a relationship, no.

    Estp's aren't always right, nor infj's nor anybody else.

    An infj can for example be correct and predict correctly, great. But it isn't difficult to speak up and say I don't think this is going to work out an why. The infj may have incorrect info and may be making a big mistake or may be very accurate. All it takes is one in person conversation. That isn't all that much for anyone of any type. I'm well aware it doesn't happen with many people of different types. But that doesn't make it right or good or something I'd do.

    In my opinion there is way too much potential for errors of fact that could and would change the situation.

    but if you go at it from the other directionand read into most of the INFJ doorslam stories described from the doorslammed point of view, there is a very large noticeable commonality - feeling that the INFJ has being crueler to them prior to them to cruelty the INFJ judges them for (sometimes even for the same actions), and i think there's a very simple crux point : when someone is being mean to you by telling you that your doing something hurtful, do you look to judge yourself, or do you judge them for saying it.

    its seems to be the later choice that the respective INFJs in the stories - including my own - take, and the critical point in what leads to those doorslam. and its there are certainly a few INFJs who have demonstrated making the same choice here, but not all, and its an easy to recognize crux point. just being aware of it... stopping to think "wait, i'm killing the messenger but i'm kind of proving the message", having it as a redflag that you need to stop whatever you are doing and take that space you guys use to do your energy-collecting thing... at least most of those kind of doorslams could be avoided.

    next INFJ mystery: what really is happening when an INFJ goes to the other room to take some space after a fight, and are their toys involved...

    But what I'm saying what I think is not at all accurate is this idea of INFJs dodging having a conversation. I'm an INFJ and as I said I get along well with all my "significant" exes i.e. the ones I've actually lived with or been very involved with. There was never any "doorslamming" just normal breaking up. No running to the hills. I even get along with the ex who dumped me at the buss stop. So what gives? What's this all about?
    I have cut off people out of my life but they had it coming. I'm not the only one who agrees with me: Everyone else thought they acted like real butts and they themselves later apologized cause they acted like butts. What of it? They sure knew I was angry. I actually think astronauts felt the anger waves all the way to space. It was not subtle. So I'm canning this inane sissypants INFJ doorslammer theory.

    This thread is really the pits.

    It still comes down to reading minds. No one can read your mind all or most of the time. The expectation that somehow others are supposed to do this is grandiose egocentric behavior. If the other person is truly special or truly a soul mate they will just be able to read my mind. No. No. And, no.

    If you want to understand something more or better, if you want to be heard, you have to take action. you have to initiate action or conversation. Speak up. And, how you do so matters. If a potential infj door slammer said to me that she needed to talk with me, not to me, I would do so every time. I may not agree with what you say and you may not agree with what i say, but the information will be much more clear and certain for both sides. That helps both people.

    What is it that you want that you are not getting? If these things are not clearly, rationally expressed in back and forth discussion, the outcome will never be good. It can be good at least part of the time if you speak up.

    What do you base this notion of not being willing to listen? It's not true. It's a falsehood. It's not how it is. Like us having a dialogue here at the forum, even though I think these claims are rubbish. I'll have a conversation gladly but I'll draw my own conclusions, especially when the presumption is that this is typical INFJ behaviour and I'm an INFJ so it should then ring a bell.. but no.

    next INFJ mystery: what really is happening when an INFJ goes to the other room to take some space after a fight, and are their toys involved...
    What? ....
    So you're in effect saying that the INFJ is being a butt and then poor innocent other person says "You are being a butt" and this causes the INFJ to get angry because no one can tell tem they're being a butt and to drop off the face of the earth as revenge...or go to a room (????).. I don't know what kind of toys you're talking about...
    I've had many people criticize me to my face. If I think it's true I don't mind. If it's something I haven't been aware of I'm actually glad because it's helpful. If it's something about me that they don't like because they think their way is the only way I ignore it, though it's rude and ignorant. (like some super organized person telling me I'm disorganized, or someone who likes money telling me I should get a proper job...it's just useless "advice" or "observation". I'm not too disorganized and I have a great low paying job...see my point )
    I don't know what you guys are talking about, really don't.
    So I don't think this INFJ doorslam theory has any merit to it.
