    Default You say NF's are soft?

    Hey there Nico here! This is my first thread on this site! Whoho go ahead and break the confety!
    Anyways on a slightly more serious tone, I was exploring the Idyllic based threads and recognize a pattern; it seems that many people deem us to be whishy washy, conflict avoidant and vulnerable. I must admit I find this slightly insulting because I think this kind of behaviour goes against my moral code. Sure the are many people who I concider NF's that have, how should I put it nicely, rainbowtastic antics and are scared of any kind of confrontation. I, for one, have no problem with confrontation; usually, I make my agressors put their own foot in their mouth. I want to see what my fellow NF's have to say about this preconcived stereotype.
    Rant away!

    I think NFs get this stereotype because they start out pretty open. They gradually learn to compartmentalize, growing a thicker skin as they mature.

    NTs, as an example, start out pretty closed. They'll learn how to be more open, letting the walls down tactfully as they mature.

    All types can be triggered to do the opposite pretty early on, but i doubt it tends to be pretty at that point.

    I used to be pretty confrontational when I was in my teens?

    After having to work, go to school, juggle with all sorts of life events, I'm just so tired to have to put up a fight anymore.

    People will be people. If need be, if I'm really irritated, I'll let a person know, or simply will not interact with them. Anger takes too much energy away from me. I need a Red Bull for that. Maybe my blood pressure's waay too low. IDK..

    On the other hand, when I explode, I EXPLODE.

    My close friend tested an INFP, to me she seems like an ENFP.. whatever, anywho. She was hated for being confrontational. to be honest she lost way too many friends because when they did something she didnt like, she effing told them. shes totally an exception to that stereotype.
    although i seem to fit it well. hahah

    Let people think what they want. When someone pushes once too often, and has to pick themselves up off the concrete, or gets verbally and emotionally annihilated, they will only have themselves to blame. Believing stereotypes are accurate, is a recipe for pain.

    oh who gives a f@*K...the trick is to be soft where it counts AND strong where it counts.

    Agreed. It's like a peach, soft and juicy at the outside with a strong solid pit; a core that can choke you or even poison you if you get too much of it

    Haha, wow. This thread turned pretty violent for something about how soft we are!

    People who make assumptions about me and my ability to stand up and defend myself, or turn into a cold hard bitch, are in for a surprise. In fact, the surprise factor makes the reaction even more satisfying.
