Ok, Proteanmix has a point. A hate thread should not be about telling people how much you love them. So I'm creating a new version of the thread. In this thread there are some basic rules:
1: You do not have to hate an INFP to post here, but you do have to post things that annoy you about INFPs.
2: Yes, we're all different, and not all INFPs are this way or that, and health levels are an important factor etc. Let's say this is a given in this thread. In other words: If people say "INFPs are extremely childish", it's a given that they're talking about the INFPs they know and not every INFP on the planet, even if it's not specified. Therefore:
4. It's not allowed to defend INFPs in this thread, say you love them or modify people's statements by saying "Not everybody are this way." If you feel a need to defend INFPs, do it in a "what do you think of INFPs" thread, "Love an INFP" or in the old "Hate an INFP? Tell us why" thread which got derailed (yes, I know I played a role in that.)
So. What do you hate/find annoying/sometimes dislike/find funny (but in a slightly patronizing way) about INFPs?
I'll start. I hate how some INFPs tend to close their ears to logic in a discussion if it clashes with their ideas, even if they're very capable of rational thought up until that point in the conversation. Try pointing out that they have contradicting ideals in their heads and they'll either zone out completely, become extremely stupid or get emotional.
Example: I know an INFP vet. She's very intelligent and very pragmatic normally, but she's both very concerned with animal rights and at the same time raised on a Norwegian farm and hold the ideas she's been brought up with very dear. So now you have a animal rights person who thinks animals don't suffer when they're transported and slaughtered, who thinks killing whales is acceptable, who thinks the few wolves and wolverines in Norway should be shot in order to let sheep walk free in the mountains (not because she feels it's better for the sheep, but because farmers save money that way), and who at the same time feels it's terrible that tigers are close to extinction. I can buy a pragmatic "ok, I know it doesn't make sense, but that's the way I think", but she won't even admit it's contradictory and whenever I try to show her that wolves/tigers are the same mechanism, her eyez glaze over and she shuts down and sours.
Once we stumbled upon a bunny running free on a river bank, and she wanted to call the local animal rescue people. I tried telling her that it was probably wild, but she said: But there are cats and dogs around here, it could get hurt. When I asked her if she wanted to call the animal rescue people if we encountered a badger or a moose, she shut down, eyes glazing over again.
I've had similar problems with several other INFPs as well. As long as we're talking abstract concepts they're able to follow logic and reason, but as soon as it goes against one of their ideals, they suddenly lose this ability completely. For instance one time, when I explained cold reading and the Forer effect to an INFP at work, she loved it and followed it and really understood the concept judging from her questions. Then I applied it to mediums and astrology... nothing. Suddenly she couldn't even understand the basics of cold reading and started asking completely weird questions which all had one thing in common: They desperately tried to say that astrology and mediums were true, and if anything, perhaps cold reading was in fact an subconscious way of talking with the dead. As if I hadn't already explained the mechanisms of cold reading and the forer effect.
So... seems some INFPs have an Fi with extreme abilities. Not only can it completely shut off Ne, but it can actually go in and delete data from it and edit them to fit the desired image. Fucking annoying.
