    For the ones I have interacted with who identify as INFJ or INFP, I think they have strange feminine powers and I love to get into discussions about sociality and human nature/plight with them--the dynamics of which they have a poetic way of describing. Nothing negative to say about them, I think they are the Überfrauen.

    Don't know what UberFrauen means but sounds positive. I have noticed that people respond well to my smiles and I give off a rather flirtatious air, but in a mix of sweet and seduction.

    I'd find they can be manipulative and selfish. I briefly dated a messed up INFP girl and man, did she love playing mind games.
    What I need when I do that is for someone to sit me down, tell me that it's not cool, tell me to be direct about my feelings and intentions and I will. But that's me. I'm not that unhealthy that I don't feel bad.

You rarely have opportunities to assert yourself since everyone has chosen to take initiative. I don't think it's inability to manage self, but a different way of managing self. She probably doesn't see the need to take initiative if the other person likes doing so, and only does so when she thinks she needs to.
    I can see what you mean. I guess that is more of an independence/dependence ratio, though; she seems "moochy" to me in some situations, and as I fall on the independent side of things, I don't like taking things from anyone if I can help it. Here's a funny example: She shops at Whole Foods all the time, because she is really into the nutrition thing (You know how INFPs get about things that really mean something to them!... yep, that's her and nutrition). She calls it "Free Cheese Day" because they have a lot of samples (namely a lot of cheese samples). She keeps reminding me, as well, that if you ask to try something oftentimes they will let you try it. Every once in a while I see something that I might like, and don't think before saying "I might like to try that sometime", then she will say "Well you should ask to try it." And I'm like, "...Nooooo." I figure if I really, really want it I will purchase some to try. I guess in some ways I feel like she is taking advantage of people's generosity (that sounds kind of weird for an INFP, doesn't it?) and she ends up leaning on me a lot because of my independence. And don't get me wrong; I would gladly offer my own generosity without thinking. (Though I might feel taken advantage of... I do it over and over again. And here I never thought I was that bad of a doormat...)

    That sounds like a pain. My friend made very good grades despite her focus jumping around all over the place and her procrastination... Sometimes I wonder how she pulled it off. It's probably outside influence or pressure.

    I doubt that it's because of outside influence or pressure. INFPs tend to be internally motivated.

    I have a friend who is an INFp...

    Good things about her:
    Positive attitude
    VERY Friendly
    VERY Empathetic
    VERY Eccentric (I consider this a good thing, but most people don't)
    Fun to be around
    Open to experience

    Bad things about her:
    Apprehensive, (but always has a positive attitude)
    Crazy quick mood swings
    She can be sooooo annoying and repetitive
    She thinks she knows everything, not really, but she has that attitude.


    I'm the only INFJ I know sooo I'll just go by me.

    Good things:
    Creative
    Artistic
    Atheletic
    Open to experience
    Friendly
    VERY Deep
    VERY Polite
    I care about others ALOT (but not via typologyc, only in person)
    I have an eccentric mind, but not an eccentric appearence

    Bad things:
    Narcassistic (but I don't show it)
    Doormat
    Hypocritical
    Judgemental
    Obsessive
    Perfectionist
    Paronoid
    Percrastinator

    What do you mean exactly by "strange feminine powers"? That sounds very interesting.

    INFJ's - my husband describes us as "innocently seductive." We are going out in the world snaring men, but being completely childlike in not realizing what we are doing or the nature of our emotional power.

    No, lots of people do surprisingly. Maybe not on a forum, but irl men like it. As long as that's not all the INFP does, that would get old fast.

    It gets kind of boring hearing what INFJs and INFPs think about themselves.

    Where's the adventure in that?

    I like to hear what OTHER types think, and even when they don't like us, at least it's interesting. Then again, there is a part of me, even now, saying "why should you care what anybody thinks?" So, why should I? I have no idea, other than I'm curious, even when I don't want to be.

    Maybe we should do a thread like this for all types, not just two. That might be entertaining.
