Mother Teresa was clearly an ISFJ.
(But they suck too.)
Ghandi was likely an INFP too-- He didn't get in people's business to start shit. If he were an INFJ, he'd likely have made a lot of noise and organised people to do things, thus getting into trouble a lot sooner than he did..
What I hate about INFJs?
They wall off part of themselves and often don't let you in, even if you're trustworthy and know you wouldn't hurt them.
If you hurt them too many times, you might as well slit your own throat -- you probably won't be forgiven.
Arguing with them once they've made up their minds about something is pointless, all you can do is get out of the way.
They can take things very very personally -- "cold-hearted bastard" and "ice queen" are probably apt descriptions if you make them mad, again you might as well just kill yourself now before they get their hands on you and enjoy watching you die.
Ambiguity can make them very unhappy.
Sometimes they take things too seriously that they know were meant in jest, but since it's serious to them, well, that's how they approach it.
Now I'm starting to feel unbalanced, only being allowed to give half of my assessment (cuz there's lots of good there too). Sigh.
Screw you too.
Sometimes they can disclose too much, thus making people think they're their new BFF- when the INFJ doesn't think so or think what they said was too "personal" to them or considered overly friendly.
Realising that they've said too much once people latch onto them and they suddenly don't like the attention...well don't fucking reach out so easily, then!
Trying to perfect themselves.
Thinking they can be perfect.
Being too critical of themselves, at times, and of others (close to them) who don't match up to their vision of how they should be (especially after they've tried *helping* them to improve themselves, whether asked to or...not).
Getting stuck in their heads Ni-ing their vision and ignoring everyone else-
Getting overly emotional on behalf of other's and thinking of other's issues, but not really doing so for themselves (bottling it up) until they cave in or burst out...and are utterly embarrassed or ashamed that they couldn't control themselves.
Fucking Fe gone overboard b/c they try to do too much or with too many people, cave in due to stress or irritation and then cave away for weeks or months and people have no clue where the hell they went or why because they aren't informed.
Not allowing other people to do things for them out of kindness w/o feeling a bit bad about it or embarrassed (that BS modesty mindset?) and expecting others to allow THEM to do things b/c it's okay if THEY do it. Really. It's okay-
*Sympathetic until the person actually requires some of the INFJs "social time"...INFJ runs in the other direction
*Prone to follow boring superficial rules of politeness when interacting with other people (must be the Fe)...this is why most people get blind-sided later when the "crazy" comes out.
*Trapped in a dream world
* INFJs enjoy too many solitary activities that keep them from forming "real" relationships
*Never returns phone calls (don't want to be bothered with people...only care about people in "theory")
*Obsessed with perfection...must be some OCD-thing or fixation on personal growth...causes alot of unnecessary stress
*Build elaborate walls to keep people at arms length
*Sassy (but those comments usually stay inside the head because it wouldn't be polite...unless provoked)
Looking mean when they aren't, or are just thinking deeply, so they confuse people who are afraid to approach them... Can't they look dreamy and nice like an INFP? WTF?
^^^Yeah this one is true...people always think I'm mean.
My friends started teasing me because I was sitting by myself and they thought they I was pissed off about something. I guess I had a weird scowl on my face. Nope, just daydreaming.
*Sinking into sadness when understimulated
*Moody when adapting weird eating and sleeping habits
*Starting too many projects and having a ferret-like attention span towards anything thats not entertaining.
