    (They expect you to read their minds!! ) Like INTPness said, you have to pick up on all the little hints.
    It gets easier with practice though, I think.

They are very non-confrontational. They want to tell you what they want/need/think in a very polite way and they expect you to get it.

    This is simply an example, but if an INFP said, "You never take out the trash." That should be understood as, "I really think you should begin to take out the trash on a regular basis. In fact, I think it should be your job from now on." Because, in this example, if you started getting in the habit of taking out the trash and then stopped again, they may get a little more upset. And when you say, "Gosh, you never expressed how important it was to you. Why are you so upset?", then they might respond with, "What do you mean...I brought it up to you once before. I did tell you." When, in fact, they just made a simple statement that you didn't take very seriously because it may have seemed that it was just said "in passing" or in a very "light" way.

    If they HINT at something, they mean it (IME). But, to them, it wasn't hinting. They explained it fully.
    Haha. This is so true.

    That being said, INFPs geniunely care about people's emotions in return, and they can be vey helpful during a difficult time... as well as encouraging and comforting in general. (I already said that, didn't I?)

    I feel like I understand them pretty well, compared to most other types. Humor and "what if" scenario banter matches up great. They really don't like when I disagree with them or challenge their point of view, more so than INFJs who seem to have a little more mental fortitude. They can be mopey sometimes, but they are really nice to be around when their bi-polar turns around and they become quickly positive and excited about things. Overall, very comfortable to be amongst.

    They're the only ones who seem to prefer calm and quiet as much as I do. We also laugh at a lot of the same things that we observe in the world. They're good people.

    There's a high population of them in a forum I go on, and they're surprisingly domineering when addressing newbies. When the poor newb posts an introduction, they bombard it with "Read the FAQ, don't forget to sign yourself up with a mentor in the buddy exchange."

    Also, a lot of them are self-proclaimed "grammar nazis". This tempts me to intentionally abuse my punctuation!!!!!

    This place seems much more low-key, whilst over there it's liek whoah. For instance, the identical "ISFP/INTP relationships" thread would have been locked with a moderator saying "A thread like this has already been made."

    And then the member would be reprimanded for reviving a "dead thread". WTF. INFPs seem to go Te-crazy online, when they socialise in herds of their own kind.
    Where is this?

    I post on INFP global chatter and it's not that way at all. It can feel like a therapy group or hippy commune sometimes (haha...not really).

    Although, if someone posts with very bad grammar, then people get a bit pissy (and rightfully so!).

    I have also found that if you purposely insult someone, even indirectly, then they clamp down fast.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Whatever you do, don't insult an INFP's hometown.

    My best friend is an INFP. She's awesome, and gets me better than most people do. It's awesome. And I don't really mind her feeling-y-ness reminds me that there are other things in life.

    Same here. Their "feeling-y-ness" is kind of refreshing for me and it's not overdone like other feeling types, at least with the two that I know. There's also that calm mutual understanding so it's easy to communicate.
