    I think being put in the friend zone has very little to do with type, actually. A lot of it has to do with whether the person is willing to tolerate it or not. When a guy is around a girl, he has to assert that he's not going to allow her to use him simply as a tool to make her life more convenient or entertaining. If she sees you as someone she can take advantage of, she might just take the opportunity. Not all women take advantage of men, of course, and certainly a lot of men take advantage of women too, so I guess this goes both ways. I guess my point is that if someone is in the alleged "friend zone" it's because they allow themself to be. If someone is going to just string you along, they're probably not worth being with in the first place. Then again, maybe that form of thinking is why I haven't had all that many successful relationships.

    It's true that certain personality types are more inclined to tolerate this behavior than others...For example, I couldn't see most ESTPs or ENTPs really standing to be friendzoned. But in the case of any type who refuses to tolerate this behavior, I think, that will radiate and they will not be friend zoned, even if the person is not interested in them.
    A hero is someone who does the right thing without expectation of reward, just because it's the right thing to do.

    Either I'm attracted to you or I'm not.

    Men go immediately into the friend zone or "other" - Other, indicating some intangible possibility. With the Others, I may be friendly and treat you with special deference as I would a friend, but I'm not their friends. I don't date friends. You can't convince me to like you more than I already do. That chemical reaction has to happen without my consent.

    There is an ENTP and an INTP out there with whom I shall never be just friends and they shall never be mine, and we treated one another in this manner because the attraction always reared up no matter what social band-aid we applied. End of story.

    Which if you think about it, thats pretty great. To live a life so carefree and fun based. Which is why I aspire to (continue to) live the male version of this life. haha (well right after I get some serious studying done the next two weeks). Im gonna try friend zoning girls blatantly too, to see their reactions. (although, when I do it blatantly and unknowingly, it has led to some drama situations or unfavorable situations), but i want to try to frame all women in this sort of immediate classification for a while, kinda just for fun for a bit. haha. after all, its the 21st century! =D
    MN, interesting take on "flipping the script" would be interested in seeing/hearing/reading how it works out for you.

    If you are serious in this endeavor I would recommend this book on this flipping the game mindset Amazon.com: Pimp: The Story of My Life (9780870679353): Iceberg Slim: Books. Naturally youre not going to apply these acts literally but it is a counterpoint of the Average Frustrated Chump (AFC) or submissive male. Also an interesting read about race relations mid 20th century, adaptation as well as lots of action.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    Lol, I'm one of those ENTJs that has a lot of friends, but not many close friends (that still
    live close enough by anyways, lol) but I guess I like it that way because it leaves more op
    enings for new chapters in my life. Lol, the Brad Pitt was pretty funny, I'm a female ENTJ
    so I get compared to Reese Witherspoon on an almost daily basis, because I'm one of tho-
    se ditzy ENTJs.

    The way I view friends is that people who are still around when everyone else is not is a
    friend.

    If by very good talker, then yes. If being competent at something means that you have an understanding for the for the process, the energy involved, and the result of an activity, then ENFJs may be the most competent at talking of all types. The INFJ is probably the most competent listeners of all.

    That being said, I agree with the general notion that INFP may be most likely to be friended.

    The INFP's brother type, the INTP will not waste their time as voluntarily once friended. The ENTP is a friend zone candidate, but the transient nature of following life's outer possibilities is to their advantage. The ENFP has the advantage of the ENTP with a tertiary Te for validation: a powerful tool at stepping in to impersonally organize the environment when it does not settle right with Fi. The INFP is certainly capable of such, but it would require much more provocation to surface.

    In general, the xNxJ types are less willing to let their environment control them and should -by nature- be more difficult to be willing to be placed in the friend zone. This is especially true since Ni is expert at forseeing implications. Perhaps the tertiary Se of the ENxJ types could get in the way by one "getting in the moment" when around someone who has friended them, but that is unlikely with Te/Fe being the capatain of the ship. I would think INxJ types would just flat out not put up with the friend zone: their primary focus is on their inner world and they interact with the outer world by putting it into proper order.

    I'll tell you who I have friend zoned and why
    INTJs- the uggies, and nerdies
    INFP-the needy ones, ones who talk too much
    (by the way I disagree with the gay thing, WTF? depressed yes, gay no.)
    INTP- the boring, uggies, and nerdies and dull
    ENTJ-the control freak! freind zoned, dont even get near me!
    INFJ- the ones who talk too much, are too verbose, redundant...zoned, or used as psychologists, or to have sex with
    ENFPs- ones who are too hyper
    ENFJ- the cocky ones, know it all's, the sex freaks- zoned when try to control me
    ENTP- the sex freak-dumped on the street, cocky bastard,
    the constant comedian-friend zoned

    I think the introverted NF's, and NT's are more likely to get zoned, at least by me...

    I think you need to revisit the definition of a "friend zone".
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.
