    Default INFJ and INFP favorite words?

    here's one of mine:

    edify

    (here's some context: i'm compiling a list of words for my mother, who is an infj and for whom english is a second language, so she can express herself better and also learn new ideas. )

    So why INFP / INFJ words? I don't see why these would be inherently different than words ENFPs and INFPs find cool.

    On that note, let me shamelessly offer some of my recent crush words. (<--- Isn't that a great term? Crush words. I picked that up from an INFJ. I love it. And, it makes me think of him every time I use it. )

    • Vuvuzela (aka lepatata)
    • Desultory
    • Bedsit
    • Gadabout


    and Juggernaut has been stuck in my head a lot lately.

    JUGGERNAUT. Ahhhh.... now that I've said it aloud, it feels like I just scratched an itch.

    I guess the word I use most is Scheiße (and I don't actually speak the language). Favorite is probably desnudate...

    Right now I think my favorite word is nap.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    ^ indeed.

    No really, indeed is one of my favorite words.

    The word "debridement" has been going through my mind lately. Not cause I needed any, just because I've been at the dentist's office a lot lately.

    And egad, yes, the dreaded vuvuzela ... I love the word, almost came to love the noise a'la World Cup!

    And egad, another wonderful word ... I could go on and on and on ...

    Egad is one of my favorites, too!

    In reference to the OP, Velocity's mom might appreciate these online resources for people who love words:

    WORDNIK. Wordnik.com.. Very cool Website for wordies with all sorts of interesting lists.

    VISUAL THESAURUS. She might also find The Visual Thesaurus a very helpful resource.

    ^^^^^^
    I love both these Websites.

    Esoteric, this is for INFJ and INFPs. At least wait for them to participate some more.

    Maybe introverts need extraverted logophiles to coax them out of hiding...

    Deja Vu, I don't get you saying this. And, I certainly don't want to get us derailed on the "who is allowed to participate in a thread" debate. But, I see no harm in querying #1 - why the OP put INFJ/INFP in the title. And, #2 - Offering a suggestion that might help the OP's mother.

    <Warning, Fi Value Statement Coming On>
    I appreciate you expressing your thoughts, Deja Vu. But I feel like unless the OP specifically says that only a certain type should reply (or is in a private forum reserved for posts only for a particular type), that any thread is open to any type to respond to.

    And frankly, this idea I occasionally hear bandied about, that it's inappropriate for types other than those mentioned in the OP to respond is... well let's just say it deeply offends my Fi's sense of right and wrong.

    We're all here to learn from each other. And, some of the most insightful posts I've read on this forum have been by people who were of types not listed in the OP. (Now obnoxiously taking over a thread by anyone of any type is a different matter. That's annoying regardless of type.)</Fi Value Statement>

    Thanks and have a great day!
