    Haha, thats what I thought. But be advised: reacting to well-meant criticism with only denial expressed by strong emotions, is a long term hinderance to growth. Personal growth isnt always limited to the self, but can by respecting the demands of other people and by understanding them better, be automatically a help for oneself.

    Are you insinuating that INFPs are prone to convenient headaches? Ah yes! The next question.

    Are INFPs prone to convenient headaches?

    This iNFP answers:
    Most often no, but occasionally yes.

    Loopholes make great nooses for the unsuspecting who ask questions.

    How do you prefer to work through conflicts with your SO?

    Actual conflicts are pretty rare for us, but when they do come up I vastly vastly prefer to discuss them in as calm and objective a manner as possible. I analyze the reasoning behind the conflict, where are each of us coming from? Is it partially or fully based on some misunderstanding? How important is this issue? I keep an extremely close watch on my emotional state and if I feel myself becoming upset or being colored by emotions I immediately want to back away for a moment, breath quietly and examine my feelings and perspective and thoughts, as well as his --until I regain detachment.

    If I allow my emotions to take over... I can get very upset. Exaggerate everything in my mind, to epic proportions. It's an erupting fire of anger and hurt, insides a boiling pot of drama. Not pretty. So I don't allow this, period.

    If I feel the emotions starting to build, I will tell him directly that I need a moment so we can continue the discussion rationally. Which he always respects. Then after a minute or so, we go on. Not all these conflicts end in agreement. Often we come to a point where each feels fairly confident the other understands their point of view, but we still disagree. This is perfectly fine. And we will revisit the topic, exploring it, each of us refining our positions. Some of our most interesting conversations have sprung from this sort of thing.
