    I'm not really clingy. I was clingy with my husband for some years, but later found out that I was depressed (because of birth control pills.) (They made me paranoid aswell )
    I have no sense of humour.

    I'm gonna answer this with "sometimes".

    I sometimes find myself clingy but only to my boyfriend. Friends, no. Most people say I give them the "independent" vibe though I'm a warm person. But definitely, sometimes I have the need to just BE with someone and stick to them, and I'm usually only comfortable with seeking that kind of companionship to those I'm close to, so yeah I may be clingy to a few. *shrug*

    Actually, I consider it to be more "needy" rather than "clingy".
    I am an ENFP but I value justice over mercy.

    I could see myself as clingy in the way of holding onto a relationship longer than I should; but most girls I've dated had a problem when I decided to go do something I wanted to do for once.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I can be clingy when I either truly like somebody and want to spend lots of time with them, or if I'm feeling very anxious and can't let go of a subject. Other than that I wouldn't say I'm clingy at all, in fact, I can be quite to opposite at times.

    Normally I prefer not to be clingy as I can find it pretty annoying and have plenty of experience of others clinging to me. I'm talking about the kind of clinging that feels like the other person is leaching off of you.

    Another thing is ones definition of clingy can be different for some people. What may not be clingy for one person may be clingy for another.

    Of course lets not get into the subject of falling in love as that is a whole new level of clinging there.

    To answer your question, I know clingy isn't an NF trait. I've personally know INFJs and ENFPs who aren't clingy at all, while I know some Ss who are very clingy.

People usually do regard me as distant but I feel more than I let on (romantic or platonic).
    Oh yes, oh yes!!!!

    I'm definitely high maintenance. But I'll make it worth your while. I agree that needy is a better word.

    I don't notice any pattern in NFs being clingy, from the ones I know in person. I don't think this is even a Feeler thing. I've seen clingy Thinkers. It has more to do with insecurity, IMO.

    I'm only clingy if: I am brought into a new situation, and then I may latch onto the people I know already. Once I'm comfortable with the new people, I don't think I over rely on them though.

    I don't tend to need a lot of friends, so maybe my relying on a few close friends seems clingy. I get accused of not calling enough and disappearing for weeks on end, so it's probably still not an issue....

    I also tend to leave relationships first, so no clingy-ness there.
    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)

    If I'm feeling especially lonely or insecure I can be, but I try to keep a lid on it because it's counter-productive.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I can be. Especially if I'm scared, insecure, or stupidly in love.

    However, I can also pull away and be distant. There is such a thing as "too much togetherness." I need space and I realize that other people do to.
