Love And Hate Together: INFPs appear innocent and child-like and cute, but if they are crossed, they will suddenly try to bite your head off. It is quite scary. Had that done to me a few days ago over something 'small' but she sort of blew her lid a bit. Prior to that, I thought she was adorable and clumsy.
Their love of people
Childlike wonder about the world
Out-of-the-box thinking and free-associating.
Could do without:
Stubbornness. Inability to admit when they're wrong.
Can be rather humorless about things that they have strong feelings about.
Unwillingness to see the other side of an argument when it violates their Fi.
These things annoy me about myself, too.
Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
My two best friends in the entire world are INFJ women.
I love how they'll laugh at all of my jokes, or give me a "Holy crap that was so dumb" glare.
I love the "psychic" connection I have with them. One of them called me when I was thinking about this very subject.
The entertaining conversations we have that can begin on the most nonsensical subject and go on for hours.
I love the way we can communicate with subtle hints, from jokes to expressing thoughts or deep feelings.
I love how warm and receptive they are. I respect and admire the way they can be so caring and have no problem tearing into someone when they're provoked.
We often have different opinions and perspectives on things. Sometimes it causes minor conflict, but more often than not I enjoy the alternate view.
They're stubborn as hell and sometimes almost impossible to sell an idea to, but once it's done - well, they'll back it with everything they have.
I hate it when I have to grumble and begrudgingly agree every time I do something dumb and I hear "I told you so!"
Building up to such a high point was very difficult. It took lots of time, lots of back-and-forth testing, and many disagreements and intense arguments. I'd gladly go through it all again.
Unfortunately for me, I haven't been close to or personally known any INFPs (that I know of), so I can't comment there.
