    So I gathered that I need a bit more acceptance and maturity for emotions. If I had to be as impersonal as an encyclopedia in there, good bye ..

    I think INTPs are good at critiquing the sweeping generalizations INFPs are prone to making. They are really good for exploring and testing new ideas with. They are open to the unconventional, yet rigorous in testing the logical consistency of ideas. Plus, they give INFPs permission to be nasty without being mean. That should probably be first, actually.
    Oh my gosh, yes. I never realised that before, but that's actually a really valid point. Me and my INTP complain about things in ways that I wouldn't feel comfortable doing with anyone else... and it's okay. I'm not a horrible person for not being 110% nice all the time.

    I tried explaining it to my ISFP mother once... she didn't get it.
    ANFP:
    Extraversion (52%) ---- Introversion (48%)
    Sensing (26%) ---- iNtuition (74%)
    Thinking (16%) ---- Feeling (84%)
    Judging (5%) ---- Perceiving (95%)

    I didn't even get that far. I basically got the impression I wasn't welcome on my first post simply because I was an FJ. (Which is understandable, given that an INTP's inferior is Fe.) I think the INTP's that know me think better of me than that, though... because I usually just talk to them about the things they're interested in, and eventually when they have an emotional problem, they come to me interested in what I have to say. I'm not sure how it works out that way, though.

    I think that there's a certain tendency for people, especially those in a minority, to embrace their negatives as some sort of "membership badge". Instead of being a trait to work with/around, it's proof that you belong!!!! OMG!!11!1

    So, anyway, on the OP: I have to say that my best friend is an ENFP and we make a good team precisely because of the contrast. She drags me out of my comfort zone if I've been surfing Wikipedia for a day, while I give her space to just lounge and be without being on. I have an absolute acceptance of whatever she's feeling, and a certain introspective knowledge of what her emotions are when she's just overwhelmed by everything, while she doesn't let me snark my way through life. We both speak in esoteric assumptions, theories and passions, but the intent and result are both very different. In other words: it works!

    I am an INFP and the "love of my life" was an INTP. He is not the person I stayed with the longest but was with him several years, was intensely in love with him, and never really got over it. For a little while, at least, he was also intensely attached to me.

    I was at first very confused by his seeming lack of internal emotions. I would search and pry and prod him to find out his feelings about any number of things and he eventually confessed to me that he didn't have very many feelings about anything, which I found very odd. I didn't know about the MBTI at the time.

    At the same time I was fascinated by his ability to solve so many problems and understand so many things that I would have never figured out. It seemed like he could do or fix almost anything, and for the most part he was so sweet about it.

    At first I think he enjoyed basking in my positive emotions for him; and in a way he appreciated my ability to help him at least figure out a little bit how he felt about things; but eventually he got bored with me and tired of my overemotionality.

    I almost would think that INTP's were the type for me since I am so attracted to their NT, but, honestly I would fear that I would eventually be rejected for not be exiting enough and overly emotional, due to that experience.

    I'm definately not representative of INFP's though, because I have other personality quirks involved.

    -Seems more like "we're in this together". With some S's I just feel different from them or left out.

    -I dont get bored with NF's, we can have fun together. Get lost in our own world.

    -For the most part, most are not overly concerned with materialistic nonsense. ie. brand names and labels

    What's most frustrating is their lack of logic and common sense. They can also be manipulative and very hypocritical. Sometimes overly sensitive. But all THAT is what draws us NT's towards them even more. It's the complete opposite of how we are.
    I COMPLETELY agree with your analysis. I have a male INFJ friend who is like my touchstone. He makes me feel like I am a human being. It seems like he is the only man that has ever really understood me..and accepts me exactly as I am. We had so much fun at a museum recently...I could see the other people in the museum...laughing as well.
    I have SO much trouble communicating with people who are sensors...especially SJs....that I now try to avoid them.

    Funny you should mention this...I just made this comment to another friend recently regarding a male INFJ friend that I recently reconnected with after 30 years. We have SO much in common, yet in the areas where we are different...his strengths are my weaknesses...and vice versa.

    What draws my INTPs friends and me together is that we understand and appreciate each other's weird imaginations that we usually hide from others.
