    I find the behavior you describe to be far more common in younger NTPs.

    If there's an INFJ tendency that drives me nuts, it's the "martyr complex."

    I have an INFJ friend who I suspect wants to be burned at their stake for her beliefs. I like INFJ's a lot though (The very few I have encountered IRL), they seem so sure of themselves and so smart I never have to think again!

    I have noticed a lot of INFJ's have been getting flak lately, it's curious. I am just glad no one has started a thread called "A question to INFP's" which asks: how many times a day do you cut yourself? Do you realize how irrational and selfish you are? Do you actually think people like your shitty-ass poetry?

    There is also the little issue of moral hypocrisy that pops up from time to time and the inevitable spin that follows if you call them out on it, which can turn quite nasty if you continue to stand your ground.

    I am sure whoever coined the phrase "do as I say, not as I do" was an INFJ

    Otherwise they tend to be lovely

    Did you miss the "What are some reasons INFPs aren't well liked?" Thread?

    Not actually. They are only a figment of the imagination. For some people it is a figment of everything they hate and for others, everything they love.

    This thread.
    So much pain, so much despair.
    So much anger, so much sadness.
    So much frustration, so much confusion.
    It's so much.

    Na, I know what the OP talking about, but it's not all of them, not by a long shot. But all types have thier bad points.

    Immature INFJs can be HUGE Jackasses. As soon as Ti kicks in and they gain some perspective they get better. Atleast this was true for myself. Don't know about anyone else, but I was a **** when I was younger, and at times now I still am.

    Have you tried explaining what they don't know in a patient, logical, non-judgmental manner? That always works for me... my response to someone calmly pointing out that I don't know so much after all is to feel humble and .
