I've learned these conversations go nowhere. I can explain 100 times over what I meant, and they will insist it's something else so as to avoid dealing with the real issue.
    I got that. I thought you saw the humor in my first post when you responded "didn't I convince you I was defective?” Or something along those lines. If you look back at that post you just quoted I added a winky face as well but I guess your winky faces and mine mean 2 different things?. I'm surprised you took that seriously (If you did). The reasoning is so circular if it were meant to be a real argument you'd be able to tear it apart rather quickly. If you did (take it seriously). I apologize. If there is a larger issue here I am more than happy to discuss it with you. You however will have to tell me what that issue is because I was not aware there was one.

    The thread would then be diverted into examining the motives of the OP. No real dissection of the INFJ would be allowed.

    This is observation more than prediction. It's a pattern. I can't help what other people do.
    This kind of seems like double talk. You say it's an observation and not a prediction so that gives you the right to make what is seemingly a prediction because you can't control what people do. The end result is the same you are making some statement about the behavior of someone else without truly knowing. It really doesn’t matter whether you focus on motive, or anything else. I mean what is a prediction but an educated guess made based on some kind of observation. I'm not saying you’re wrong in your "observation" or wrong for analyzing what you observe. It just seems like you are giving yourself an excuse to do something you are seemingly against??

Because we (often) recognize people become enamored with fantasies. This thread is not all that flattering, then. I made that point when I noted that the INFP ego is not all that flattered by being told we're sweet & nice & stuff like that. Most simply don't know how to play to our egos.
    That makes sense.

    It didn't seem like others appreciated the joke so I thought I’d comment on your genius.

    INFPs are, indeed, called "idealists", but not "the ideal" haha.
    In my opinion, the best type at actualizing a maximized future is INTJ, with their focus on what will be, and their determination to see it happen.

    But INFPs can imagine even better horizons yet than the more practical-minded INTJs, as those grand idealistic visions tend to transcend mundane restrictions!

    Agreed. INFPs are just a little bit more human (and humane) than the other types.

    I do those same things. That is not "perfect." I don't think anyone is perfect. Everytype is best type.


    You wanted to come fourteen years ago.
    I grew up.
    Don't worry, I'll soon fix that.

    I found this on this forum would love if you clicked it. (: Seems fun.

    I voted No. I wouldn't even wish upon bestowing my type to my worst enemy.

    Your "perfect" has an arbitrary definition. But these things are good when managed, yes.
