    Red face Is my friend an iNFP? Second opinion anyone?

    Just looking for a different opinion on what type my friend is. I'm guessing INFP, but I'm pretty new to this. I'll try to be as objective as I can.
    -She isn't shy.
    -She has one close circle of friends and despises a lot people before giving them a chance. Most of her friends she grew up with. Once, she didn't like one person she barely knew, but she got to know him a bit better and grudgingly decided to let him in her circle of friends.
    -She tries to cover it up, but she's a dreamer. This is a bit of iNtuition speaking on my part but she seems to long for serious relationships but is too afraid of looking like a fool, being rejected, etc. to get into one. Might or might not be related to her parents leaving her at a young age (they're alive, but she never sees them. And I'm not exaggerating on the never.).
    -She was a fan of the Twilight series but doesn't say she likes them anymore because she doesn't want to seem like a conformist.
    -She often lies or exaggerates to interest people. Once she said she'd been abused, but her conscience caught up to her and she admitted to lying about this. And, yes, I believe she was lying.
    -She loves anime and Criss Angel.
    -She considers herself "emo".

    She really is a good person. She just has some not so good traits mostly stemming from lack of relationships that most people have, so she tries to be as different as possible to prove she doesn't need them. I apologize for not knowing how to word it better.

    This is difficult; can you add anything to that? I get a sort of INTP vibe, but not sure if I could explain why...

    I don't get an INFP vibe from this. More details needed though. This could be almost any type....

    I know both an INFP and an ISFJ exactly like this.


    edit-It's a coincidence that the replies before me are from an ISFJ and an INFP. I wasn't joking or referring to them. I actually do know an INFP and an ISFJ who could fit this description.
    I have a vagina.

    Sorry, I'm bad at giving information. Let's see:
    -She hates school.
    -She calls herself stupid, which among other things gives me the impression of low-self-esteem.
    -She can get really emotional sometimes, and I can tell because that's when she acts the most melodramatic.
    -She often has friends sleep on the floor at slumber parties because she doesn't want her bed messed up.
    -She's not very friendly.
    -She often gets annoyed but never furious.
    -She's aggressive.
    -She listens to metal, punk rock, etc.
    -She usually hates reading if there aren't pictures.

    I am sort of starting to lean towards SJ...

    -She's protective of friends and if she truly likes you she won't keep secrets from you, in general, but she'll lie more because she feels she needs to in order to keep you as a friend.
    -She's proud of most relationships she has and often subtly boasts about them.

    I'm starting to think ISFJ...the typing of INFP was sort of rushed

    Yeah. I'm going with ISFJ. Thanks, all.

    I'm definitely leaning toward ISFP. She doesn't sound like an INFP at all.
