    Default Surviving surrounded by NF's



    Dont you too think those threads are unnecessary and only intended to drive people further into beliefs that they are so special, noone else in the world would understand them ?

    It's only the extroverted NFs you need to worry about. The introverted ones tend to let you run away.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    LOL at that pic.

    I find a good tactic is to brutalize their delicate sensibilities, and they tend to leave you alone. Also insult their pets as often as you can.

    I think people have them just for the comfort of knowing someone else can relate. Nothing wrong with that.


    But they do sometimes have the side-effect of making people unwilling to challenge their perspectives.

    The only problem I end up having with NFs is how exasperated I can get by their logic. At some point, it'll get to where I'm thinking "I agree with everything you said, but have no clue how the hell you got there. Not only that, but you've done nothing to convince me that I should agree with you in the course of the conversation." Of course, political junkie that I am, I start formulating strategies and arguments in my head to advance their perspectives on things.

    The fun part comes when I decide to share these arguments with them, simply because I'm excited about their possibilities, and hoping they'll be excited that they may have a better chance of convincing people to come around to their way of thinking. This inevitably backfires, as the comments that often pop up is "you make it sound so cold and self-serving" among introverts and a bitter "well, I guess so, politics as usual" among extraverts. I'm thinking "well yeah, that's the genius of it - doing what you think (notice the usage) is right by working the system and convincing others that your way of thinking is actually in their best interest", while never really comprehending the visceral disgust that NFs have for that means of cognition.

    NF's are not my friend. I cannot understand their constant stream of tears and ideas that make no logical sense.

    I wish I was surrounded by NFs. The world would be a much happier place.

    ^ Me too.

    I have more trouble surviving surrounded by ESPs without bursting out of laughter because of the lame masquarade they usually set up for themselves.

    I actually really like NFs, especially INFPs and INFJs. I feel like they bring me different perspectives and ideas that I wouldn't normally consider. They're certainly incredibly more interesting than SJs and SPs.
    In my defense, I am a terrible person.
