    You, and others, will not like my answer.

    Male INFJ's I have no knowledge of aside from ByMySword. He's kick ass, nuff said.

    Personally, I think female INFJ's are crazy. I don't believe our types mix well at all. They're conversationally manipulative and walking pity-parties. I dated one for awhile...If something doesn't follow their line of expected outcomes, such as dating etiquette, they freak out. Trapped in an unrealistic fantasy world. She wanted to have 8 kids, 1 of which would be adopted, and, even though she would go to college, she'd never use her degree. She'd let her husband work full time so she could tend to the babies. My bet was once the cute wore off after they're all older than 13 she'd kill herself.

    INFP's, on the other hand, I get along with okay. They're occasionally sulky and terribly pessimistic, but can be good company. Overly competitive, and sore-losers. Their flip-floping type change is random. One minute displaying an air of bad-ass, confident, in charge. However, once challenged, they revert back to sulk-mode. If hurt in a relationship, they bleed forever.

    Do note I'm being rather unfair to both types. This is just what I've experienced personally.

    Oh you won't click so well all the time. That's just the curse that comes with being with someone who is pretty much completely opposite in the functions, which while it does bring up compatibility issues that's one of the things I appreciate about the INFP's. The fact that they're different from me.

    I like INFPs for their idealistic view, their focus on people and being genuinely interested and doing their best in understanding them. Seems a lot of INFPs are pretty artsy too. I appreciate the arts but I don't pull of performing them that well lolz. I like artsy people.

    As for INFJ's, both my parents are one. I like them.

    Love them, but they don't necessarily like me all the time. I'm too blunt and serious/practical when it comes to doing stuff that involves decision-making with INFs.

    What do I love about INFs? Their kindness and openness. More people should be like that!

    l like SJs *because* they are blunt and serious/practical. Sometimes I get on my own nerves and find the contrast refreshing.

    Of all the types NF's are the ones I understand the least but am most amused by.

    I often have trouble keeping up conversations with INFPs one-on-one. I'm not sure how to respond to their statements or volley back other than with expressions of empathy. I tend to steer the conversation to the concrete (like what they're doing this weekend) and that tends to annoy them.

    I know what you mean.

    Yeah, I know I'm an intruder in this topic, but I felt the need to "ditto."
