    That's about as helpful as telling someone who's angry to calm down or telling a sad person to be happier--would if they could, but it's not that easy. They can't help feeling the emotions that they feel.

    I would suggest having a short discussion with whoever's offended you and explaining to them why it's offended you. If you don't want to because "that's conflict and I don't do that" (kinda like me), I just talk to my closest friends whenever something upsets me. They console me, I feel better, and then I move on. If you find it too hard to not be butthurt, having the people you care about most telling you that your butthurtedness (is that the term to use here?) is a valid feeling, it helps you to move on faster. In my experience, anyway.

    Yes, it does work.
    "Keep calm and carry on".
    It's that simple.
    I don't understand how you can fail at something that easy.

    But if that should fail, just rage out of fury and beat the crap out of whoever is offending you.
    If Ti fails, use Fe.

    This thread is a good example of people being honest about themselves despite their type.


    Many NFPs on the internet steer clear of ever mentioning times they show anger, even if they often do IRL, because they believe their type to be a "peacemaker;" INFJs deny their impulses and the "darker side of themselves" they often have.

    It's good you acknowledge it...honestly, it's hard to be any type with all the "your type must be perfect" mentality floating around. Raises the standards too high.

    Technically, my Ti will always fail when pitted against my Fe. Inferior vs. dominant functions and all that. But, beating the crap out of people is probably not the way to go lol!

    Anyway, my point was just that it's harder for F-types to just "get over it" and move on because we can't just shake off and ignore how we feel; I'm not an NF, but after seeing the posts in this thread I assume it's similar for them. If an F tries to ignore these feelings and "carry on" it could potentially bottle up and explode later. So, in these butthurt situations I would recommend that OP come to terms with their feelings out in the open by sharing them rather than ignoring them and potentially having that backfire later.

    I have no problems with Fs, my GF is an INFJ
    INFJ's aren't like INFP's. We are Fi doms and we get offended the easiest.

    I actually used to be a cold ENTJ but life happened
    you can't change type.

    Just a suggestion.
    which i happily ignored.

    This one, kiddo. The point is to rechannel what you perceive as a negative into something else.
