    You mean to say you've never come across any in real life? I'll agree that an INFJ can use their natural born gifts to manipulate others. I've done so on people who utterly fail to grasp a situation properly and need to be guided through. I cant say I would know what an INFJ female is truly like. Id imagine the astounding insight coupled with some basic neurotic tendancies PLUS all the inner complexity would make for one hell of a ride. If the INFJ women you've been around didn't have their heads on straight, and were menstruating, god forbid, I truly sympathize with you man. Dont shoot me INFJ gals. I know for a fact we can be giant messes even without the help of Mother Nature's biological trappings.

    Oh the ironic hypocrisy. The one thing I was just complaining about is what I'm using now. *laughs*

    That sounds fairly accurate.

    I'm actually characterized as ridiculously easy going by most people. However, those who get to know me better know it's part of the picture but not the whole thing; I have a lot of inner anxiety and a few distinct neuroses. I think if you treat me nicely I am extremely low maintenance, otherwise it can get complicated and ugly.

    I dare say everyone is responding with "INFJ"-oriented perspectives because you asked about INFJs from the perspective of others. It's an MBTI forum, people tend to come up with those perspectives...however, my impression from this forum is that people don't view themselves as fitting neatly into a stereotype, either...

    The males are sensitive, but the ones I know are never happy for long, always chasing the end of some new rainbow.
    Now thats not entirely true. I admit to having unrealistic expectations at an earlier age, but faced with the tendancies of my alcohol and party loving age group (I'm 23), its hard for me to *not* chase a "rainbow" I've yet to find. Its very disappointing that I cant find someone in real life, of the female persuasion, who has a natural inclination for basic goodness and doesnt enjoy being wasted on something like Jack Daniels and acid. As far as personal achievements go, Im not stopping till I've exhausted myself xD.

    Well yes, I did ask for others to give input and their perspective on an INFJ. I was expecting to see how they viewed it from a personal standpoint. My fault for not specifying. Stupid technicalities.

    I feel you on the "treat me nicely" front. I'm beyond low maintenance if I'm treated with the same love and respect I give a girl. However I wont hesitate to make it very difficult for her in a hurry if she mistreats me. I've put past girlfriends through the wringer by showing them what they're doing to me, and basically making them ask themselves if this is what they truly want to be doing. I've given them a lot of time to think and even turn it all around. Sadly it was to no avail. So my hunt continues :/.

    Like I said, don't get me wrong I know a bunch of you are tight. I've just known alot of twisted INFJ chickadees who use people in ugly, ugly little ways. I know one who routinely cheats on her guy in their bed about 3-5 times a week. Another one confessed her love to me and then told me she was marrying a guy she'd just met and wanted me to create the invitations. I don't know what the fuck dude. I've just seen so much nasty it's difficult for me to take a lot of you seriously anymore. Big ups to all the INFJs that aren't unstable lunatics in denial though.

    Real life? what's that? I'm an INTJ remember. Seriously though I think I might of come across one or two broody INFJ guys in my time but not any I immediately felt the need to strike up an sort of bromance with. Like, having Ni as my primary function myself I can see right through anyone trying to pull at my strings so it's like hey INFJ are you seriously trying to fool me? really?. For shame.

    Failure of one isnt the failure of all. I think youre pretty aware of that, and yes Ni is a brilliant "you cant fool me retard" mechanism. I know INFJs can be convulted, but those women you've met seriously sound mistyped. I dont believe for one second that a consistent INFJ would do those things. We're not saints by a long shot, but cheaters, cold and calculating, marrying someone we just met? Not by *any* stretch of the imagination does that fit any INFJ.

    Personal opinion. I've never experienced it to my knowledge.

    On my view of INFJ's: I think they are alright. I have enjoyed their company at work and school, don't think I could stay close to one, though. First of all, I get vibes that I make them nervous. They appear to be off in their own world, I'm not sure what they are thinking about. A mutual misunderstanding, perhaps. I have felt chronically judged by them regardless of whether they are judging me or not. I will say something and then watch these quiet think-tanks running, like they are taking every word very seriously and combining and recombining it and are unsure how to react. In my mind, things that I say make perfect sense and are usually lighthearted- everything does not need to be a mystical puzzle. It could be my own projection, though.

    It stems from our need to understand. In my case it would be my need to understand your typical behavior, reactions, and general thought process so I can better relate to you in the near future. Its only initially that this happens. If I get to know you better then I can think more on the fly and react faster based on what I know about you.

    It almost always feels as if I am walking on egg shells when I am communicating with INFJs.

    One never knows..........

    Yeah, that makes sense. I tend to be on the unpredictable side, too, which probably makes it even harder.

    Yeah, me too. But they never outwardly say anything to make me think that. It's a facial expression thing.
