    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.

    this chart seems pretty accurate IMO. the most common enneagram types for INFP are 4w5 and 9w1

    This. I like INFPs because they're quiet and sweet and peaceful and they avoid drama. And I find their foolish idealism absolutely adorable. (Also, I suppose their innate goodness keeps me from becoming too cynical.)

    But that's how we show that we care.

    i should clarify: not exactly criticism. more like proclamations of hatred. contrastingly, you only really hear good things about ENFPs by INTJs

    i'm at least partially aware that you were being partially facetious. at least.

The immovable intellect of the INTJ outer shell provides them something to grasp onto, to pull out of the raging current, catch their waterlogged breath, and start up their *own* Te motor, and join the real world -- whether in quest of goals, exuding vast quantities of magical healing rays to those in need, manifesting the rarely glimpsed but often hoped for "sunshine-n-silliness" (still mythical, in my own experience, but I haven't *quite* given up hope), or even (horror of horrors!) paying the bills or catching up on the dishes.


    The immoveable intellect of the INTJ? What is this? A Jane Austen Novel?


    And then, just when you think an INFP is a big fluffy ball of cotton candy, you discover that lurking underneath, is a mind of tempered steel, just as sharp, just as fast, and *almost* as relentless as your own.
    Are you serious? Again, you're saying that INFPs can never be more shrewd or determined than INTJs.

    No higher praise can be given.
    You should reread what you've written, it's very patronising.

    I find with ISFPs and INTPs, the conversation is more two-sided and essentially we can talk for longer periods with no goal in mind. With INTJs, they'll only start a conversation with something in mind and therefore appear less friendly and receptive. My INTJ friend is mostly a listener, would listen to the those around him and respond accordingly (similar to ENTJs) so I did a lot more talking. Not that it bothered me, just that being e9, I'm accustomed to avoiding the spotlight and absorbing feelings and thoughts.

    I also find with INTJs, which contrasts sharply to ISTJs, is that we tend to have similar social and political views however it manifests differently. They tend to challenge systems, I tend to bring attention to the injustices through supporting the underdog.

    I noticed with my friend that he was diligent with messages even though he knew how inconsistent and flaky I was. Is that how you express it, though commitment?

    You don't find INTJs in your experience to be stubborn as a donkey on steroids?

    Perhaps they can, internally -- I know a couple of INFPs, and have gotten a rare glimpse under the hood at their minds working. Ye cats.
    But to the external world, they don't give *any* indication of it.
    As far as the relentless, I find the INFP resembles an INTP in their, well, *depth* of sounding things out, for something which is an INFP value. INTPs do this for logical definitions of systems, but again, only for particular topics of interest.
    The INTJ doesn't dive as deep, formally, but tends to suck in everything like a Hoover. It was in the sense of *NEVER* stopping, that I meant relentless.

    I re-read it. It was written, as it were, for other INTJs who *wrongly adjudge* INFPs to have no Te, no capability for rational thought.
    And, since INTJs have the reputation of "masterminds" and pride themselves on such -- for an INTJ to give blanket praise to another MBTI type, for that type's intellectual capability,
    that *is* high praise.

    Look, if you're looking for gushing, effusive language, an INTJ is probably a poor choice. Until you get into their marshmallow fluff.

    Geez Louise, I thought I correctly captured the best points of the INFP ...
    "caught up in the whirlwind chain of Ne free-association; or hammering out the last link in their gossamer internal-values chain-mail (hidden like mithril under their external facing fairy wings)"

    mithril is rare, and precious; and it is the very CORE of the INFP.
