    Yes exactly--And if you show that emotion they'll assume your stupidity is valid which self-justifies their crazy running off in their mind like that and just makes things....Wrong.

    Hopefully they don't keep on and heap criticism on top of insult..at least you know you're sane if you are able to listen to the quite voice of intellect reaffirm the facts

    Perhaps you havent attempted this^ with an INFJ who is off-the-tracks running on pure Ni...having left the Se, Fe, and Ti cars neglected far behind.

    I'm the INFJ. I was referring to when NT's or ST's explain things to me in a calm, logical manner.

    Yes careful calm explanation was done.

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

    Otherwise they tend to be lovely

    Mature INFJs have their own annoying attitudes. The example in the OP seems to be most likely a way to protect oneself by holding on to the beliefs. Admitting that you're wrong seems worse than behaving cocky.

    Personally, I think I've been awesome since birth but ignorance is bliss and I'd rather not know what people really think of me most of the time. Merely being myself can annoy people out quite a lot. I have great potential to be an INFJackass, thank you very much.

    The single INFJ I've met in "real life" is a wonderful human being and I feel honoured to know her. The INFJs online are among the awesomest people I've met.
    I know a very well balanced INFJ. She's mature. These things don't all apply to everyone.

    Are attitudes actually linked to personality type?

    I'm pretty sure I've seen those annoying behaviours in lots of different people/types. I know a certain INTJ that was adamant Colin Firth's name was Colin Frith. (My husband.) Luckily we were in a video store and I was able to show him three - yes three - different DVD covers to eventually convince him he was wrong.

    Hahaha, good times.

    Well now we know NTs have souls and that INFJs aren't perfect.

    any type can be an asshole. to the op, did you honestly think assholery was reserved for INFJ's?

    that being said, i find myself offending people often with extra thoughts or opposing views on most subjects. the people i come into contact with often just want to hear how great things are.

    i recently asked the dude at the coffee shop how he would react if someone actually told him how they were when he asked. he said he hoped that never happened. so to answer your question, yes, i can be an jackass sometimes too and honestly life would be boring if we didn't challenge people occasionally.

    PS- peguy, you're a mature INFJ. rinse, repeat.
    Time is a delicate mistress.

    Transcends the familiar doesn't it

    You're talking about one's own nature...

    That perhaps once it starts it couldn't end otherwise
