tldrAm I the only one who did not like this guy’s videos? When I was typing myself this guy confused me to no end. After watching the first video again and taking notes to make sure I'm not crazy he's very unclear.
First issue: He starts off by saying the main difference between INFJ and INFP is the use of Fi vs Ti. I would like to know why this would be the determinant. If Infp=Fi Ne Si Te and INFJ=Ni Fe Ti Se why would it make sense to pit an INFP's dominant function (Fi) against and INFJ's tertiary function (Ti)? He never explains why or how he is using this method.
Second issue: The first half of the video he says INFJs have more back bone than INFPs. Towards the end he says an INFJ is more likely to get quiet and withdraw when they are hurt but an INFP is more likely to unleash a verbal assault and confront the person. So which is it? He never explains what the use of a subjective term like backbone even means. By my interpretation he would be contradicting himself. He never explains what he means so I can’t really come to any sort of conclusion about it.
Third Issue: His verbal diarrhea concept. He says INFP's do this when hurt because of the use Te. He describes it as a wall of text and says something to the effect that "it's like by talking they cover up the fact they are hurt". Then he says Ti users won't do this when hurt. A Ti user will react but not with wall of text. They will instead give you all the reasons why they are not guilty of what they accuse you of. Ok fine but then he says Fe will use verbal diarrhea when hurt but it's diffident than Te. He never says how. So an INFJ who is Fe aux is more likely to react with their tertiary function and an INFP with their inferior? But why? If we follow that logic then they should both be operating with their 3rd and Forth functions respectively (for the sake of balance let's say you need an internal and external function). So for INFP Si Te and INFJ Ti Se. So why not explain what that combination looks like in both types in different situations? Just saying they do it but it’s different doesn't tell me anything and it’s very confusing.
I found some of what he says interesting and insightful. For example he describes how an INFJ would get to know someone vs INFP. I also liked what he said about INFP's exerting an internal warmth vs. an INFJ's external warmth. I'm not sure I fully agree/ understand that. Again he was very unclear but It was an interesting perspective. I think it all goes back to not pitting a dom function against at least an aux to begin with. It would have been a lot more informative to know what an INFP's use of Fi Ne looks like vs. and INFJ’s use of Ni Fe. Overall I just feel like he never fully qualifies anything he says so I can't take what he says too seriously. He uses subjective terms and built part of his supporting argument around "it's just different". That's not good enough to persuade me I have been mistyped. Personally I feel if he can't explain how an INFJ and an INFP are different the rest of his videos can't be given much credibility. To the Op and those of you who liked these videos feel free to correct me if I misunderstood something he said. @DJ Arendee @SuchIrony @Bilateral Entry Perhaps it would help me if you would explain why you agree with his first video or anyone else for that matter.
