    Yes, this is irresponsible, but I don't think it makes me (or her) worthless. Give us abstracted folk a chance or leave us be and find yourself an SJ.
    I never said this made her worthless. I'm just fed up.

    Don't get me wrong that's the one thing I love being abstract and living in my own reality. But at the same time I realize I have responsibilities in this reality that I need to take care of. It's like I can pay attention to detail and the real world if need be, but I prefer not to.

    I don't if it's how I was raised because my brother is the same way. But when people say they're gonna do something I sort of expect it to be done in a timely manner. Just like if I say I'm gonna do something and then don't I expect to be held responsible for any problems my flakiness causes, even if I just forgot.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    You are exactly right in this. She flaked on you and she's accountable for it, INFJ or not. I'd be fed up too.

    This is exactly why in small doses Te is very useful.

    You are right. This is no doubt a maturity issue. I didn't mean to excuse irresponsible behavior on the part of INFJs (or any one else), just explain it a little.

    Heh. I don't think a day passes when I don't walk into a door or trip over something.

    don't apologize, I'm pretty much done with this thread. Feel free to take in any direction you'd like. Also walking into doors and tripping over thing, I don't think is just an INFJ thing, unless I've been mistyped.
