I have this INFP school friend who I'm not particularly close to but shes okay to have the occasional chat to and stuff. Shes a pretty nice person but recently I've noticed some rather odd behaviour.
Once we were discussing about our grades (cos we both want to take honours after our degree) and she mentioned she may not be able to as her grades were slipping.
I told her not to give up because I had pretty lacklustre grades at the beginning of our course and with some work I managed to improve.
She then went on to say something along the lines that it was because I was friends with HER. Er, okay. I basically replied something along the lines of "Er, thanks for taking credit for my successes."
Just today, I was jokingly commenting on how she kept commenting on my recent Facebook photo album as we have this ongoing inside joke about how we always flirt with each other and stuff.
She went: "Oh its because noone was paying attention to your upload and so I was being polite, so I decided to leave some comments."
Huge HUH again. I mentioned other people have left comments and she claimed it was only AFTER she left hers. (????) Whats ironic though is three other people already had commented before she did, but I didn't bring that up.
What's the reason for this behaviour? Is she REALLY secretly trying to "nurture" me in ways I don't notice or something? (Like helping with grades, etc.) Granted, she does help out by telling me what goes on when I'm not present but I think its quite ridiculous for her to assume I'm so dependent on her when most of the grades I get is through my own merit. In a sense I feel she's trying to fish for compliments or something but if I have something nice to say I usually would have said it, so...
Ever notice such behaviour in other INFPs?
