    Question Are INFJs jealous of INFPs?

    This thread isn't meant to hurt anyone's feelings, just a question. I know it's human nature to be jealous in small ways, but could the way an infp reacts to life make an infj jealous -- and if so, what would the reactions be from the infj. I don't think theyd ever come right out snd say that they were jealous, so what would they do or how would they act instead?

    Perhaps this was merely a projection on your part .... are you jealous of INFJs?

    My infj friend knows I'm envious of her writing skill and her book smarts. She's known for years.

    I just meant jealous in the sense that infps go about decision making differently than infjs. Infj's need people to bounce their ideas off of, infps don't. Infjs take a long time to process things, infps seem to be quicker to process and forgive while infj's keep you doorslamed (and out of the blue, on your part, not theirs) until next christmas or forever.

    Like I said it was not a question meant to upset anyone. I just wondered what some opinions or experiences were. I do apologize to anyone I might have offended.

    I don't think anyone would be offended. I can see why it would be nice to not deal with my downsides, but I don't think I'd like to trade. I like being what I am even if it's sometimes inconvenient.

    Okay. I don't want you to become inhibited in making new threads and posts. It's just that it's easy for me to look at the OP and perceive some sort of superiority on the part of INFPs based on how the question is framed. I didn't want any part of that.

    But I do have some ideas after reading your third post and rethinking this topic. I'll get back to this tomorrow after I've mulled it over.

    Actually for the bouncing off of ideas, I heard it was flipped. INFP's use Ne (extraverted in ideas, so breadth) so exchanging ideas. whereas INFJ's use Ni (introverted in ideas, in depth) so they keep more to themselves.

    While the forum has a mixed opinion on forgiveness, INFP's are likelier to hold grudges should you step on a value, even if you insult infj's personal feelings, if you like stop, infj's will forgive you.

    or me, yes.
