    ohh. wait.

    i once had a classmate who did that. i'm not sure if he was INFP or ISFP, but it drove my prof INSANE. we'd have a roundtable where each of us was expected to share an answer, and of course all the extraverts would usually go first, then the introverts, then finally she would have to call on the last few. and sometimes this one kid would just sit there. and like, not say anything. our prof was a ridiculously tightly wound e1 and WANTED him to share like everyone else and she would just wait impatiently and emote a really high level of aggravation. and eventually either he would say something really brief, or say something of suitable length that was totally appropriate and smart.

    it's a curious thing to me, since i typically always have more to say, lol.

    Yeah that sounds like me too, I'm terrible in groups, I have to be prompted heaps. I'd like to figure out why I'm like that.

    My ISFP BFF and I are sort of similar. He is far more optimistic than me, and far more present in his immediate enviroment than I am. He loves dancing, and all that stuff, and is a much more tactile person than me. He teases me about my conspiracy theories, and ridiculous theories, and how at parties I always end up where the brainy people are, shooting off one of my mad cap theories.
    He's much more down to earth, but we are both really silly. God, he makes me laugh. We are both really "arty" though. He's more tolerant and mellow than I am, but when he cracks he really goes to town, where as I just fizz and fume, then it's over. He's kinda naive some times about people (that's an age thing I think), and some times gets take advantage of, because he's so mellow and easy going. It annoys me, that people mistake him for an easy target. He's a bit more lovable than me too. Every one loves him. He can some times be less driven than I am (and whinge more), then he'll decide to do some thing and it's like some one lit a fire up his ass.

    More sensory, less abstract.

    Eg.
    ...bachelor ISFP, enjoys the strip club far too much.
    ...bachelor INFP, me gets dragged to a strip club and starts wondering the psychology behind why the ladies would want to strip.

    He keeps going out of lonelieness
    While I don't see the point.

    He goes boobies!

    And I say your only going because your filling a void and that is unhealthy. In order to fill a void your substituting visual stimulation for intimacy and as such you are deluding yourself that you are going to feel good about spending your time at a strip club. The longer you do it the more you'll realise the void.

    He goes, huh, wtf?

    I go, nvm!

    Really? Do you seriously think this is relevant? You think Ns never look at porn or go to strip clubs?

    What about an NFP who has worked in the adult industry? Are you able to wrap your head around that?

    I've been told that I have a "sensuality" about me for an NFP and there are people (mostly people who know absolute ZERO about me) who think I'm SFP, but I'm telling you, there are NFs who strip. Or do porn. Or whatever.

    I don't like your analogy. I find it absurd.

    I know by the way.

    Sorry, it was bad humour. I had a feeling it would get you fired up as soon as I posted and had an urge to remove it but resisted.

    Was just saying he's still as single as me. We both fail.
    I have friends from high school who work in the industry.
    I am very liberal and my intonations were absurd. Was having a poke at me being a total fail at life yeah.

    I don't think the point of the analogy was that divisive or intended to imply NFPs wouldn't work in the sex industry. I think the point was that S's usually concern themselves with concrete things while N's concern themselves with complexities that aren't physical while an S wouldn't bother. => That an S would not concern themselves with the psychological ramification (positive or negative: all of it) of sex work while an N would on instinct. You can't tell me that you, even though you are involved in sex work, only take it as face value. We all know the difference between S and N and that was a perfect analogy. If it isn't "real" the S doesn't care.

    I get sore at S's for not even considering these kinds of complexities ("who cares? the girl is naked and I like it" kind of shallowness they display when confronted with complexities) and I got exactly what he was talking about. Again, I don't think the analogy was intended to be divisive or negative towards sex work.

    I'm not sure which side of the fence I'd sit on there, I definitely wouldn't be as dismissive as that guy sounds, I like delving into why people do things and complex things are interesting.
