    Are INF men more likely to be gay?
    Has anyone studied sexual orientation + type?

    No, but they seem like it...

    I doubt it. They're just more likely to be labeled as such.

    After giving it some thought, I want to stress this, lest you all think me prone to violence: It is only in the defense of loved ones that I am quick to act with violence.

    Regarding myself, I am generally too forgiving of those who would verbally (and in other, more subtle ways), attack me, and often to my own chagrin.

    I wonder if I should be more aggressive in defending my own honor, like I am so quick to defend the honor of others? This issue has always given me some concern.

    I think the MBTI Manual has a bit on sexual orientation and type. I'll check when I get home. I vaguely recall that correlations weren't that high, but that INTJ was the most likely type to be homosexual, but don't quote me on that (might all be a figment of my foggy memory).

    Still, I'd say most gay men (like most people) are S. As far as Ns go, I seem to run into more gay NTs than I do NFs (of course, I do work as a computer geek). When I first came out, it was a bit of a shock to me that I wasn't any more typical a gay man than I was a straight one. Overall, I'd guess the stereotypical gay personality type would be ESFP.

    I think teasing apart the interactions between personality type, gender and sexual orientation would be interesting but I haven't heard of anything terribly comprehensive.

    Anyway, I feel for straight American male INFs, since they have to deal with being fairly far away from the stereotypical American male personality type. I don't think most INF males are "really gay" or more than most Thinking women are "really lesbian."

    Not asexual? Huh.

    No, I didn't mean to imply that. But I've noticed that there seems to be a statistically significant proportion of INTP women with bi orientation. And I think part of that might come from being more "male"-brained. I wondered if there was a similar phenomenon for NF men.

    This has ruined 2 different big relationships for me:sad:
    It seems like once I get involved and get people into a relationship my internal wall recreates itself.

    Has any other INFJ or anyone in general had this happen?

    I'm a straight American male INF, and I have several very close gay male friends. I find "the stereotypical American male personality type" quite annoying, with all their false bravado and machismo posturing. It just gets old after a while.

    I enjoy hanging out with my gay male friends because there's never any sexual tension (like there can be with female friends), and I don't have to deal with all the macho crap.

    I would guess that might be a "straight male INFP" thing, but I could be reaching.

    I don't know. I'm heterosexual though. I have nothing against homosexuallity. I just don't like the ones that act more girly than girls do. Only once have I been hit on by a homosexual man. I simply told him I was heterosexual as politely as I could.

    The only bad thing about being an INFP male is that you can't "pick up" women, it's more in the lines of being "picked up" by women. The good thing about it though is that you get all the perverted aggressive women, in all kinds of ages =)
