    In general, my sense is that I am considered to be friendly and affable when I am out and about in public, e.g., grocery shopping. I have engaged with strangers about this or that when the mood strikes me, and I am almost always met with a smile and return engagement. I don't tend to space when I am out in public so I don't get that slackjaw 1000-yard stare thing going.

    I once sang a part of a 3-part harmony of Extreme's "More Than Words" with two total strangers (1 female, 1 male) in a check-out line because - well, I don't know. The song was playing on the overheads and I met eyes with these people and it just started.

    That's the only time in recent memory when I have let my freak flag fly. Most times I am keeping to myself.

    I have the sense that I am well-liked, but I think and feel part of that is because I like other people and it shows.


    cheers,
    Ian

    Yeah, I noticed that, despite my attempts to be polite. Such is life.

    I expected INFP's to freak out over being called boring and give us a good show. No such luck.

    Haha, where do I begin? hmm

    Ok simply:

    Odd - I really think people don't get me, they don't know what to say to me, there's always an air of awkwardness, which leads nicely onto:

    Intimidating - Only really introverted or really extroverted people talk to me, everyone who's inbetween seem scared. The extreme introverts talk to me because they understand me since they're similar, and extreme extroverts are fearless and will talk to anyone.

    Aloof - People find me distant I'm sure, I don't look people in eye and can space out a bit where I block out the conversation around me, if I get interested in the conversation they're often surprised when I talk..sometimes a lot...

    I've been called boring sometimes, by supposed 'friends', which made me feel awful to be honest.

    Who cares what some INTJ thinks . I think I come off as dull, but I think that's because I don't talk and take a long time to warm up....but engaging people in "moral debates" ? It sounds like someone is mistyping people. How many INFPs are that aggressive? I avoid moral debates as much as possible.
    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)

    From the little I know, I think the shy ones are cute and kindhearted, if a bit spacey. I like it.

    also, they would not show other people their wrists!

    Oh yeah, I get this a lot, too. The more people find out about me, the more surprises they get.

    I've never had problems with other women, but I know a lot of women who do, and it's a phenomenon that really intrigues me. There isn't any one type I prefer to see in other women. Over the years, my best female friends have been INTJ, ENTP, ENFP, and ISFJ, and I've had less close female friends of many other types.

    Haha, personally I'm not offended by this (no one can be interesting to everyone) although I'm sorry your INFP friends bore you. I have often wondered how INTJs feel about having their tertiary Fi engaged in conversation. I don't usually do the whole moral debate thing, but I do often communicate with IxTJs at the level of Fi by talking to them about their deep personal emotions/experiences and sharing my own. Communicating with my tertiary Si gets tiring pretty quickly, so I can see how this would wear on an IxTJ ... although my IxTJ friends never seem bored by it ... hmm ... maybe I can't read people as well as I think.

    I don't really know. I only know that the close female friends I do make in offline life have been ISFP, ISTJ or INTJ.

    Yeah, I wondered about that too. (But who knows...I know 2 INFPs in real life, including myself, haha.) I really hate debating with people, because in my mind it feels like a "conflict". It's really uncomfortable for me.

    The emo thing always amuses me. I listen to some "emo" music, but geez...I am too lazy to do my hair and makeup like that everyday. hahaha
