    Eh? Doesn't seem to me like that's what's happening on this forum.

    I think an INFP or ISFP 6w7 sx/sp would be my ideal girlfriend.

    I suspect i'm drawn to them because we can relate to each other well (Fi) and they aren't very confrontational...

    Any MBTI type can be a 6, in fact the only Enneatype that has a significant correlation to MBTI is 5.

    As 6s are more common than, say, 4s and 9s, I would expect there to be quite a few INFP 6s floating around. They have probably just mistyped.

    So. First. Why are the INFP's frequent lapses in logic and extreme over-tenderness given a pass (or even found endearing) when most other types aren't given that compliment (those poor ESFJs-oh, you're merciless to them!)? Is it the ease with which we change our minds while thinking out loud? Because your feuds with INTPs are legendary, and INFJs don't usually talk about deep subjects until they've already formed firm opinions.

    Second, do you find our shameless sharing of shy-person-feelings to be tranquilizing when you're stressed? I know that an INTJ's calm, succinct stating of facts has calmed me immediately when I've been seriously worked up over stuff (you certainly calm things down over on the NF board).

    And third, has it been your experience that INTJs and INFPs share an intelligent but offensive sense of humor?

    Oh! Fourth and final. Has an INFP ever come to your defense? Usually it's you guys protecting us (and I know the INTJs in my life sometimes find it trying), but when my INTJ friends are off balance and attacked, I go into a Gohan rage that I'd otherwise be waaay too shy and inhibited to express.
    I think that INTJs have some kind of intuitive understanding for and appreciation of INFPs. There is the Fi connection - the INTJ appreciates the Fi which in their case is relatively weaker. There is also the Ni appreciating Ne. Ne+Fi provides fuel/information for the INTJ's Ni to consider. We like their out of the box thinking and the fact that they have strong feeling values. I don't know the answer to the second question. I haven't observed the intelligent/offensive sense of humor thing either. We probably appreciate them better than they appreciate us. I think we can be guilty of offending them unknowingly.

    1. Because you are cute, like kittens are cute.
    2. No. I find it embarrassing because I know I should say something but also know that anything I say will cause problems for the sheer absence of empathy its going to contain.
    3. No.
    4. No.
