    I relate to everything! I guess we see that drama people as "fake" and "untrue" and that is what our Fi just can't stand.

    I'm an INFP and I'm the same. When I first got into MBTI I was unhappy that I was not as compassionate and caring as the type description suggested. My studies have concluded that empathy for INFPs is a mechanism which suits a means to an end. Compassion in the conventional sense is more a context based system - feeling sad and upset on a situation by situation basis rather than it as an idea or concept. This is more related to Fe; Fi (dominant function for INFPs) is a system which runs on different programming.

    Empathy does occur in abundance but it is used by you for the purpose to understand the journey someone else has walked - the choices they have made, the places they have been etc. and determine whether you want or value this path either for yourself or for society on a whole. Have you ever stopped and stated that that way wasn't how you wanted to live your life? If you did then you came to that conclusion by walking a mile in their shoes.

    I didn't mean to say I think people in abusive relationships are full of shit, but I notice that people on Facebook sometimes have a tendency to exaggerate things just for the sake of getting attention. I had to unfriend one of my cousins because she was continuing to post comments about how abusive and cruel much of her family is to her. I can't speak for the others, but her problems with me were over a disagreement we had MONTHS ago, and something I thought we'd already talked about and gotten over. That's the sort of drama I have zero tolerance or time to worry about.

    The way I understand INFP as "Healer" is that they are sort of a bastion of pureness in the world, and you can go to them to be enveloped in that Fi purity and have your inner wounds "healed" - and they bring that Fi to the world to help "heal" its internal wounds, too. Remember that often medicine tastes disgusting, and that medical procedures are often very painful. Healing is not always a kind or gentle process, but one that emphasizes health.

    When you see things that are harmful - like catty insults - you may not feel much tolerance for them because there is almost no aspect of them that is beneficial. The Healer may well have little patience for unhealthful practices, as they stand in direct contradiction to your aim.

    I thought "Healer" was by how we relate via self-reflection our own personal experiences and articulate our findings - a process with the intent of guiding another within themselves to find the issue and allow them to fix it in their own way.

    That works too! I think all Fi types tend to go through that process. Feeling, introverted.
