    I've been a little hard on INFPs here, so I'd like to apologize, I guess.

    I do have conflicts with them because I tend to get very angry because it seems that they are asking for one thing from me, when in reality, they are asking for something else.

    Here is an example regarding something that has been on my mind recently:

    They will ask to get to the "root" of why something bothers me so that the conflict can get "resolved". Then when I recount the cause and effect of why I am bothered by something, they get upset for me bringing up the past, or being too misanthropic, or something. (Hell, they'll even ask for "examples" but how can I give an I don't know that this ever resolves the conflict, though. Then I get upset at the demands for "openness" that usually just end up being supplying them with excuses for why they are right and I am wrong. I don't even really care if they are right or whatever, but then I end up feeling that they are determined to not listen to me. I'm advertised an "honest discussion" that ends up not looking anything like that, and somehow, I'm always the one that causes the trouble. Usually it just makes the conflict more drawn out and uncomfortable, and both of us end up feeling worse. I've come to the conclusion that it's better to just not honor the demands for "openness".


    Radical honesty is stupid. Some things aren't important enough to me to start an argument over. Every time someone does something annoying, do they really need to hear about it? Conflicts get resolved by apologies (admissions of responsiblity), affirmations (demonstrations of good faith) and compromises (on the part of both parties), not "openness". And you can't be so open with someone that you rule out the possibility of all future conflicts (I get the feeling that some of them expect that). That's not going to happen. You can't expect conflicts to go away just by talking about the issues and not doing anything about them, or just expecting only the other person to do something about them. They unilaterally decide that, having talked about them, the conflicts were "resolved" even though nobody changed their behavior.

    I find this kind of thing to be maddening and infuriating. I'd rather just give a sincere apology and be done with it, or discuss possible actions in the future, rather than these tedious, never-ending discussions about "root causes".

    When you aren't asking me to get to the "root" of something like that, you guys are ok.

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    @msg_v2 Perhaps the only soul searching you need to do is to find out why you seek out INFPs in the first place. I can't imagine you really enjoy it from the sounds of things. Continuous Fi/Ti clashes sound exhausting.

    I was in an LTR with one once, but I am not inclined to repeat that. However, my mom is one, so it comes up a lot. It's not really avoidable.

    Perfect people don't exist, and neither do perfect types of people.

    If perfect types of people existed, we should be seeing perfect people. Since no such thing exists, this is obviously not true.

    Well, unless a type is something completely metaphysical.
