    That sounds familiar. Do INFJ's secretly crave irritation?

    True irritation? No.

    Ne randomness irritation? Yes.

    My question between a INFJ male and an ENTP female is, wouldn't the female get weary with the INFJ need to "talk out" emotions and decisions? I don't pretend to know, I am curious. I mean because my INFJ needs to talk his emotions/decisions out with me a lot. Far more than I really need in return. And he's very private, he doesn't show this side to very many people, so I bear the brunt of this.

    It certainly seems logical to me that a male INFJ would be entertained by a Ne dom.
    My INFP friend is married to a male INFJ. What you described here is so similar to their interactions. Mixture of wonder and perplexity haha.

    *cough* female ENTP here. I wouldn't describe myself as not being soft, nor would I say I'm a hardass. Attraction meter goes up around male (N)Ts because there's less chance for misunderstandings. I've interacted a lot with a male INFJ in my old grad program and no matter how hard I tried to figure him out, he was just a mystery. He was really open with telling me things about his life, but there was no "romantic" connection. Really nice guy, but definitely the kind that required an intense emotional connection with whoever he was with. He needed someone who would be more patient with his process for discussing his feelings and thoughts. I think if you really love that person, and are mature enough for commitment, you develop patience in abundance.

    I am capable of an intense emotional connection, but with male INFx's I don't think I can provide the *right* kind of emotional connection for them, honestly.

    Haha! Funny you say that. I just posted a response on this thread saying exactly this!

    Do you feel a need to be nurtured?

    They make lovely dancing monkeys to dance along with once in a while.

    In what sense do you mean "nurtured"? Like motherly? Bring me food/drink/comfort? etc.


    Lauren Ashley: I can definitely see how their marriage ended in irreconcilable differences with the provided reasons. It can be such a hindrance to romantic feelings to continue existing when you're always having to work hard at pleasing the other person. I imagine the ideal marriage to be a situation where both people effortlessly (for the most part), and naturally just "get it".
