Also the laid back attitude reflect a little bit of the INFp Socionics that life is not meant to always to take always so seriously. *sigh*

    P.S. I know your inner world is another realm. Haha. Complex in ways I cannot comprehend.
    I have two infj friends irl, and feel we get along well and understand each other well. I think both may perceive me the way you describe, as I'm definitely much slower paced and less involved than they, and they probably consider me mellow. But I feel I have to be honest and say, I'm actually not the most patient person, lol. Maybe in their eyes and with certain scenarios I am (like, say, certain personality or relationship struggles they are having), but when it comes to action type things, or if say I want to get out on a hike *right now* I can be impatient, lol. (Or I will impulsively cut my hair). I'm patient until ... I'm not. lol. I don't think I get easily upset though. Definitely not in everyday sort of situations; I can adjust relatively quickly. My getting upset will really only come into play if it's tied to a super intimate relationship and I am hurt.

    Hah the first part is true but that doesn't mean you guys are dumb, sorry for the people who see you that way though. Lol I do see inside sometimes you look like you're gonna explode but it doesn't really show haha. Yeah I had to be with a companion for my mission and one of them was ISFP, great guy just some points he's like "I don't approve what you're doing" but I'd try to intuitively work things out and it never went to the point where he got actually full on angry. I could see that. You guys don't really get upset and sometimes I'm like how could you not? I mean probably inside, but that calm appearance makes you get through the day better.

    Ha, any of my friends wouldn't ever consider me 'dumb', and that was the last thing ppl in school thought when I was young, but now that I think about it, it's probable that acquaintances or people I casually interact with might have that opinion, just because of the fact that I don't say a whole lot or I just give fairly high level simplistic answers or summaries. I'm definitely not your verbose highly articulate explainer or outliner or describer. I tend not to dwell on the subject, though, as I'm of the opinion if someone makes a super quick judgment on that, they're kind of unintelligent in many ways by doing so. I think I run into this the most (and it occurs with all workers in the food /service industry) at the coffee shop I work at, for example with smug and extremely arrogant doctors/surgeons or that type -- it is what it is. It's no loss to me, frankly, they can date and be friends with people who put up with their schtick.

    Yeah, the calm demeanor doesn't mean things aren't lively inside. But again, it's not often that I truly get upset.

    Haha true that. Even if their professions are difficult, they are still only in business because people need help. But people come to you because they want your services. Me either, unless I know the subject too well in and out.

    That's good.

    Do ISFPs hate losing friendships?
    Always forward, never back!
