    Instead of the government writing non-binding resolutions, they will write non-binding poems.

    The INFP rulers would hoard all of the anti-depressant and anti-anxiety medicine for themselves.

    Now I'm not completely sure that people will draw the connection between the song and what I am saying, but it makes sense to me :P
    Yeah, I get it. This is very close to my kind of thinking. There is a line I don't want to cross when it comes to changing the world. You know, I offered a vegetarian a candy and she took it, read the package and spit it out as she realized that there is some incredibly small amount of animal in it. And then there are the environmentalists who would go freakin nuts if you borrow a car to make your day easier just this time and then they fly to oslo to join a protest.

    If I ever be as enthusiastic (read: paranoid and hateful) about anything, please slap me.

    Think of old wise chiefs of villages, towns, and temples. It would take some time to organize the people, but it can be done. We would be like a benevolent emperor who would find a just and sensible way for someone to learn the error of their ways and disputes. Other types would marvel at such a humane wisdom and would allow the continued rule of one such as thus. It would just take some training to give INFP's time to learn against their more darker tendencies, which are caused by the society they live in. In a peaceful environment, where INFP is revered, we would want to live up to those expectations as best as possible.

    What type doens't hold grudges every now and then, and what type doesn't bite when cornered? We all do.

    Well, I believe that on the contrary, NFPs are more prone to respect and endorse diversity. I might be wrong though.

    Well, whether it could happen or not, the world would quickly devolve into chaos, factions and groups fighting for ideological charges. Maybe not physically, but definitely terrible political, religious, and social struggles. Unforgiving, unrelenting... a veritable Hell on earth.
    Isn't big part of the world already just like that nowadays?

    Naturally, the INFPs would take no part in the actual executions. They'd be too busy enjoying the fruits of their caste system.
    A religion that slaughter people deliberately? By INFPs, are you sure?

    That's me. Luckily I have my INTJ buds to keep me on track.

    That's funny. But I think INFJs are more prone to be conspiracy nuts than us.

    However, I imagine an INFP best suited to a world of peaceful anarchy as defined below:

    "A theoretical social state in which there is no governing person or body of persons, but each individual has absolute liberty (without the implication of disorder)."


    Which of course would mean no INFP leader, as there would be no leaders at all.

    I think an INFP's most effective leadership might come from envisioning a populace mature enough to conduct themselves with the same loving consideration for their fellow human as is had for self and striving as best they are able within the constraints of current society to live that vision.

    Too crazy. Need some stability, people can't be that emotionally intense all the time. Disputes happen. A LOT. I don't know if such a world could handle it.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.
