It wasn't abrasive, I just found the comment itself interesting because it appeared that you had another type in mind outside of the scope of the topic. You have nothing to be sorry about lol.
Interesting, I can understand some of that mentality. The last one, though, makes me a bit wary. Are you saying that she defines herself based on the relationships she has or that she defines her role in a relationship based on what is happening in the relationship?I don't think that your understanding of how an INFJ would use extraverted feeling is quite correct. INFJs often appear detached and in my opinion, mean. I can explain why. Fe is not the warm-and-fuzzy, hugging-strangers-on-the-street function that it's often made out to be, especially when it's paired with dominant Ni. It's mostly a proprietary function. My INFJ friend is mean, in my opinion, but she is highly concerned with doing and saying the "appropriate" thing. Appropriate is the key word. Not the nice thing, the appropriate thing. She is not someone you would want to hug as soon as you saw her. In fact, most people want to run away from her. LOL! She's concerned about how people 'view' her. She's obsessed with asking herself how her actions toward other people define her 'role' in a way that I don't understand.
I see, I see.INFJs are not 'emotional' in the same way that ENFJs are, let alone in the same way that ENFPs are. It's either the ExFx or the ENFx that gives off the impression of warmth right off the bat.
Understandable. My blog post was written under the light that I needed to 'open up' and show my feelings (on a particular forum, that is). IIRC, ISFJs have Si, correct? Unless I have misunderstood the function which, from what I've read, is all about recalling old data and such, and comparing it to the current reality; if that is Si, then I don't think I use it. I prefer living in the moment and looking to the future, I don't really contemplate the past at allAll of that said about INFJs, I see you as a likely IxFJ. I haven't seen that much Ni? Your blog post sounded IxFJ, leaning ISFJ to me. Your signature includes a quote, "I like life but life has a boyfriend," which is an extraverted feeling joke. I wouldn't use that as evidence, but it was just a little red herring to me as I was thinking about your type.

Hmm. Fairly similar progression myself, I typed INTJ when I was in 8th grade, thought it was BS and dismissed, took the test again and got the same result and got interested, that's how I got started in all this MBTI business. Hmm. I can live without practicality and efficiency, I'm pretty sure. Now that I recall, I've done it numerous times before (One specific example I'm recalling at the moment is the fact that I've played more than 10 instruments. Logically speaking, I realize that you can play the melody of any song on any instrument and that sticking to one instrument and practicing will make you capable of actually playing that melody but, alas, I just love the sound and timbre of other instruments and as such, I had to pick up other instruments. Looking back, my skill levels suffered for it, but I do not regret it)
This sounds possibly ISFJ-like to me.
This could be xxFJ.
I don't know what I think about this post. It's not really indicative of any type in particular.
You know what, I typed as an INTJ my freshman year of high school, and I really thought that was what I was until my junior year. That was when I met an actual INTJ and realized I was NF. It's the aspect of yourself that you simply cannot live without that counts for MBTI, Serge. There are so many, so many stereotypes about types that you have to discount in order to figure out your true preferences.
Thank you for your post, it was very insightful! o/\oAleksei, I think you're my favorite person on this forum. YOU ARE HILARIOUS. Your temper is so similar to mine.
