    I don't get the whole thing about "sensing" what a room's atmosphere is like. I don't sense things like that...


    When I get a feeling about something/someone, I feel like it has as much to do with Ne as Fi. I'm just noticing little patterns that suggest many things. I am not prone to jump to any one conclusion. Quick decisions are unusual for INFPs, right?

    Like you, it also takes me awhile to close the folder on a person and label it. It remains open as I gather new info. This is because a judgment can be very final and requires much thought, and I'm hesitant to go there until I have enough facts. Maybe some people trust their initial feeling too much, or I don't trust it enough. I've often wished I listened to a feeling earlier on, and maybe it was my experiences growing up that made me suspicious of my own feelings.

    Your Tyra Banks example is funny because I had a similar response to her. I found myself giving a TV personality the "benefit of the doubt" and then finally just ended up deciding she was very unlikable and full of herself.

    I agree that I am not incredibly sensitive to a room's atmosphere either. I'm too lost in my own head to be focused that outwardly. When I sense something, it's vague and left open to many interpretations until I come across further info that confirms it. Then I'll think, "I knew it!"
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I'm thinking ENTJ now, (Which seems contradictory, but that's a whole can of worms).

    She really doesn't strike me as INFJ at all. Interesting. Or if she is one, maybe I'm not one.

    Hey, INFPs/ISFPs. I love you guys:

    I'm past the arrogance stage of thinking that's what y'all are about, rather, I just put out love, not expecting anything in return. I find this makes me very happy for some reason, and I also find that I get some kind of response--it's random, and suprising, but it's there. I realize that all of you are awesome people.
    Love is the point.

    Yeah, and that's basically the way it goes, usually. You then are likely some FP type.:rolli:

    Time limited post - I feel a little too exposed to share my thoughts like this right now.

    Hope you got a chance to read it while it lasted!

    I feel so shallow now. I didn't mean to fake-listen to Pete, force a ping back, or invade his space with my massive hand gestures. I'm sorry. Being an ENFJ sucks when you see the truth.

    LOL, I'm glad you see things my way, most beloved sasquatch.

    We love you too.

    And hey, if they were just two people there, not knowing type, I would still feel that Pete is reticent and overwhelmed to a certain extent by his interviewer. He could be more assertive, and her less commanding.

    True.

    I hope to God I don't still act like that...I know I used to, but I realized along the way how self involved I was, and developed a little Fi to compensate--not to say that Fe is evil, just incomplete. This thread has been very educational.
    Love is the point.
