    Telling an INTJ to stop being lame is like telling an INFP to stop crying.

    It's interesting you should say that (about the N preference). I know that we are all supposed to be able to relate well to any type, but I find the S/N divide the largest.

    Nearly all of my friends and co-workers are Ns and it really 'clunks' when you throw an S into the mix. Not so much for the N but for the S. They look at you like you are a total weirdo.

    That said - I have the most amazingly beautiful ISFJ friend who is a guardian in every sense of the word. She doesn't have a bad bone in her body - but I certainly wouldn't start up with Metaphysical discussion. It doesn't do anything for her.

    No. S/N divide isn't largest for me.
    When I'm with ENXPs for example it's not an issue.

    Socionics seems stupid until you really understand it well. I recommend it. It has some good theories on stuff like this.

    He's really not lame. He's very fun loving. He just gets critical sometimes because I don't attend to a planning detail that he thinks should have been obvious. Okay, sometimes it's not just a detail. Once we were stuck for three days in an awful, dark, smelly little "cabin" in the upper peninsula of Michigan, LOL. But it's hard to tell how good a "cabin" is until you're there, ya know?

    I cry maybe three or four time a year tops and never around other people except husband.

    I have only cried in front of two people in my life, my mother and my husband.

    Respectfully, I don't think you understand INFP at all.

    I find the more aggressive/blunt I am, the less well we get along. The more I am sweet and nurturing, the more likely he is to agree with me.

    So in a nutshell, I would say my INTJ values (in no particular order):
    1. Independence
    2. Intelligence/deep conversations
    3. Someone who gently challenges ideas (not argumentative)
    4. Introversion/someone who appreciates the need for space
    5. Companionship
    6. Loyalty
    7. Someone who can tolerate bluntness (although too much of it earns him a chewing out)
    8. Low maintenance
    9. A "feeler" gauge--to let him know when he's being too T to others, help him evaluate conversations/office politics, and keep him in touch with the gentler side of life

    Really, in a nutshell, he has often told me that he really values my loyalty, gentleness, and nurturing nature. He feels our home is his safe haven, and he'd rather be here than anywhere else in the world. (LOL--I agree!) Conflict wears him out and he appreciates coming home to a place where there's not too much of it (unless he's being too blunt--then it's dished right back).

    I'd be interested in hearing others' experiences as well.
    Yep. I relate to that INTJ. Same values.

    It's not that INFPs cry often, it's that telling them not to cry when they are crying is only going to make them cry more.
