    Disagree on the assertiveness, but my line goes exactly down the middle between "T" and "F".

    It's funny - I've never thought of a detective as being that aware of contingencies, but I guess they would have to be pretty good at that. I was thinking instead Machiavelli skilz, when you mentioned awareness of contingencies, but the goals would often be very different.

    However when Machiavelli said "There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle, than to initiate a new order of things. For the reformer has enemies in all those who profit by the older order, and only lukewarm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order, this lukewarmness arising partly from fear of their adversaries, who have the laws in their favour; and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who do not truly believe in anything new until they have had actual experience of it." M is explaining one of the very things that INFP's have the hardest time comprehending; at least to the extent that they have reached the point of living it, versus simply intellectually conceding it.

    I see what you're saying. I generally start out with people on one level, and I may or may not ever have to be ( or even want to be ) very assertive with them, as time goes along. But if they start striking me as someone who's consistently trying to "get over" on me, I can go well beyond assertiveness with them, and become quite aggressive, albeit however obliquely the situation may require.......

    As an ENFP who is about 3-5% E, I think John Lennon (my fav INFP, well fav famous one ) describes it well with 'watching the wheels'. (i transcribed off an old version not the album one)

    People say I'm crazy
    to do what I'm doing.
    They give me all kinds of advice
    to save me from ruin.
    When I say that I'm okay
    they look at me kinda strange,
    "but surely you're not happy now
    you're no longer in the game."

    People say I'm lazy,
    wasting my life away.
    They give me all kinds of warnings
    designed to enlighten me.
    I tell them I'm doing fine
    watching shadows on the wall,
    "but don't you miss the good times boy?
    You're no longer on the ball."

    I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round.
    I really love the traffic flow.
    No longer riding on the merry-go-round..
    I just got to let it go.

    People say I'm stupid,
    giving my money away.
    They give me all kinds of names and addresses,
    designed to save me financially.
    I tell them I'm just doing fine watching the flowers grow,
    "but surely you're not happy boy, you don't own the whole damn world."

    I'm just sitting here watching the world go round...
    I really love to watch it spin.
    No longer riding on the merry-go-round..
    I just had to do it in.

    hehe, I've got that one as an ENFP. I'm actually really interested in psychopaths.

    Having decided that someone is an utterly obnoxious asshole, you start thinking of ways you can help them become a nicer person.

    People mistake you for emo, but your poetry isn't that bad and you've never really got around to doing weird things with your hair, clothes and makeup.
