    Default SJ - INFP

    Hey guys

    I was just curious about how the various SJ types felt about INFPs in particular.

    I guess it came about from me noticing that two SJ types were interested in INFJs and ENFPs, but INFPs aren't seeing any of the love

    So...

    Do you like us as people?
    Do you like us as friends?
    Do you like us as lovers?

    Or do you want to stab us to death and dump our bodies in the desert?

    And of those things, why do you feel that way?

    EDIT: Also, feel free to share personal experiences you've had with INFPs, or just talk about the type in general and not INFP individuals specifically It's whatever you're comfortable with sharing!

    Hello! Welcome to the forum.

    I don´t base my personal relationships on the MBTI, or any other typing system.

    I can like people of any type. As friends, lovers, family members, enemies, whatever.

    Fair enough

    Then what do you think of INFP as described in its type analysis?

    My dad is an xNFP and I think he is awesome. I get along with him better than I do with my ESFJ mother!
    Strychnine is all-natural,
    So strychnine is all good.
    It's Godly and righteous,
    So eat it, you should.
    Who are you to refuse nature's will?

    A different type everyday - so no need to type me anymore. But feel free to enjoy the sound of your own asscrack.

    They have a flexibility and a genuine interest for people that (sometimes) I wish I had.

    The only problem I have when dealing with INFPs I know, is to bring them back to ground when they start going too far when talking about ideas and thoughts about things which don´t seem to fit in the actual situation, or that I can´t find useful to solve a particular issue.

    I am very blunt myself, and I have hurt their sensitivities while doing what I mentioned above. That is the main source of my misunderstandings with INFPs.

    My mom is an ESFJ (she was an ISFJ as a child, and draws a lot of her past experiences in to help me with problems), so I kind of know what you mean!

    She's the most important person in my life. We're like peanut butter and chocolate lol

    Yeah, I can understand that

    It's good that you're aware of it though. Any type with a potential for bluntness makes me a bit apprehensive, because I'm not sure if they, as an individual, are aware of how their bluntness could affect me as an INFP.

    It's nice to meet someone with that amount of self-awareness

    Hello darling.

    I've just been agreeing with you in another thread .. Should of gave you rep .. My bad

    I have a lot of love for you guys .. My ex was an INFP and i'm now at the point where i can look back and smile and not feel sad .. Yayyyyy.

    I love you guys as people .. The healthy one's anyway

    I don't have any INFP friends

    Lovers .. depends on the healthy/unhealthy issue again .. A bloody mess if unhealthy, however if healthy/open to communication/emotional secure .. Then i think we do just fine.

    The Fi is the biggest issue for me .. If people talk then things can be worked out. I don't enjoy mind reading and i know when things are wrong.

    I do pay attention to the conversations on here about INFP/ESFJ and watching the chat between 2 people .. I wouldn't be able to understand you at your core .. Or something like that .. Maybe it's about the intuition .. Find yourself an INFJ, they may just rock your world

    I know quite a few INFP's and all of them whom I've known to be INFP for sure, I have liked as people. I've never had a romantic interest in an INFP though (most of the ones I know are dudes). But that's not to say I couldn't find an INFP that I dig romantically.
