    The one I parent is a little like possessing Michigan J. Frog: people who don't live with her often do believe her perfect. Not that she isn't mighty close.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I didn't realize Michigan J. Frog had a name! That's a great INFP analogy.

    My new theory on truth is that what's meaningful is more true to the heart than what's true in reality. So the ideal is greater than what's there, essentially.

    Does this idea of mine resonate with the INFPs here?

    I think that any and every type can be the perfect type given they are healthy and in their element.

    I will admit it. IMO Ni doms can be full of themselves. I will even go as far as to admit that I can be that way. I agree that it is in part due to false praise.( Not to justify it) There is also rarity and the nature of the beast itself to consider but...

    THE IRONY!!!... I mean did that just happen?? Are you really accusing one type of false humility while seemingly bragging about how truly humble your type is (along with ISFPs).There may be some truth to that but there was no way I could’ve let that slide. I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you but c'mon. There was not a single humble remark in that post period!! LOL You know what INFPs would have to be truly humble because they obviously would suck at false humility if it was an everyday occurrence... LOL Forgive us "Ni snowflakes". Please show us the way of the truly humble INFP.

    No…you have convinced me that you are trying to assert you are somehow superior because you admit you are defective lol. That on some level other types are more defective in that they are defective and don't know it. You on the other hand are above disillusionment. So in being aware of your defectiveness you are somehow less defective. I wasn’t convinced of anything before but now I am almost certain. lol

    I would say so. Though I personally see the tendency (in myself at least) to elevate some things above others as a weakness in many ways (though a necessary evil.)

    @iNtrovert - your post smells of "st00pid". I think OA is saying that INFPs can't afford to overlook what they have observed in themselves whilst INFJs can (or will fail to observe their faults in the first place.) It's a Ji thing not "false humility".

    OA literally says false humility lol. Please if I misunderstood this correct me. What I got out of this is if INFJs were the center of this thread they would secretly agree but claim they did not. In addition the INFJ lovers would sing their praises because MBTI profiles seem to perpetuate the idea of INFJ superiority. (Which I pretty much agree with in my other post) In contrary INFPs will see this and truly try to convenience you that they are not to be praised because they are truly defective. (I took the liberty of taking that to imply that opposed to the false humility of the INFJ the INFPs are truly humble.) All I was saying is that was a truly ironic way of making that point. Especially to add something to the effect “it had to be said” in the spoiler. I found it flipping hilarious. I mean truly hysterical lol. I wasn’t trying to insult INFP’s because I actually rather like them. In my response I pretty much agreed with 75 to 80% of what OA said. OA is a spicy individual and I can appreciate that lol. I love reading the posts on the Fi vs Fe threads. So no disrespect there. Perhaps since you find my understanding is so obviously flawed you can enlighten as to why it “smells of St00pid” to point out what I perceive to be irony between the assertion of OAs post and it’s delivery. Although OA did already respond to me and I feel as though she would have reamed me if I misunderstood the first post. Yet I could be very wrong or perhaps you could have misunderstood my intentions. Maybe a little bit of both.

    God was likely an ESFJ. He may punish you a lot and make your life a hell but he loves you and he wants to know that you know he loves you. He also isn't happy when you don't show your appreciation for him and lacked the foresight to see that if he is going to need to put his own son on the Earth to die for humanity's sins (after already wiping them out in a flood) then he probably should check over the design specs.

    Add the occasional fun time and troll time of Ne (floods, famines, religious wars) and the poor internal logical consistency of inferior Ti (keeps creating different religions with different rules with the exception that every religion is the correct one) and you get an ESFJ.
