    INFJs are more likely to care about getting their message out or have an agenda for where they want a conversation to go or what they have to say. INFPs are more open to listening first without processing it all right away.

    INFJs have an internal structure for measuring everything against. INFPs are have very passionately held feelings about some things, but are less likely to have strong feelings immediately about whether something is good or bad.

    INFJs need several go arounds before conflict is completely resolved. Kind of like having a bunch of junk that needs to have places found for it. Nearly always there are a couple of stray items that are found later. INFPs are likely to take a final stance on something and expect it to be done with.

    INFJs tend to be more directive when giving instructions while INFPs tend to describe the situation and expect the hearer will infer what needs to be done.

    INFJs are more likely to try to influence other's behaviour, particularly if they care about them and it is destructive. INFPs are more likely to let them learn for themselves and not want to influence the process as much.

    INFJs are curious to know how people work and ask questions to flesh out their understanding of a person so they can better prepare for how to deal with them. INFPs tend to take things in as they come without trying to direct the interaction or plug the new details into a preexisting structure in their minds. They are more likely to filter things through the lens of their own personal experiences.

    INFPs have strongly held views, but they are based on a personal criteria more than one decided by external factors. Therefore they can be quite unconventional, compared to INFJs.

    INFPs have a goofier and very imaginative sense of humour and are more likely to have more gears in between serious and joking modes of communication.

    INFPs are often less practical in every day matters and sometimes have a tendancy to avoid dealing with problems. INFJs do that when they are overwhelmed by details, but generally like to face problems more directly.

    INFPs are less emotive and appear dispassionate compared to INFJs. However, they are much more passionate under the surface in some regards. INFJs are more emotive, and given the right circumstances passionate express it. While they have layers, they are likely to want someone to understand everything about them inside out. INFPs seem to like some privacy and operate more internally. INFJs need to discuss things with people to organize them in their own minds, while INFPs take in information but do not need people's input the same way to decide how they feel about something.

    There's a bunch of others, but these are the ones that come to mind right now.

    I highly agree with the curiousity of understanding others to better deal with them (Sensors don't like it as much I learned) and the variety of fringe groups. I tend to be an anthropologist and want to study that field in depth someday more. Thanks for saying this stuff, I do feel like I am confirming that I am more of an INFJ.

    Make a decent politically incorrect or raunchy joke and an INFJ will either pretend it didn't happen, laugh with an "omg, did he just say that" face, give you a polite chuckle, or give you a quick heads up; while an INFP will either laugh, lash out, or internalize their contempt for you or people like you. INFJs are easier to offend in little incriments (often based on issues of courtesy, social decorum or undermining general societal issues), while INFPs get more intensely offended when you do offend them (usually over something specific that they relate to, associate themselves with, or feel sympathy towards).

    INFJ goes:

    That's Rude - that's Rude - Rude - haha, that was okay - rude - rude - Maybe I should have a talk with him.

    INFP goes:

    Lol - lol - lol - lol - lol - lol - Grrrrrrrr.

    I tend to say "that's bad" :} But if it starts to really directed towards me, if it can be avoided I leave. If not, I let them know. :O

    Those INFJ descriptions about reactions to dirty jokes and whatnot better describe me.

    I still think I'm an INFP.

    Like, my old high school friend that always told n-word jokes, this was usually my response to him: that's bad, man. Don't get my throat slit for being seen with your bigoted ass. LOL.

    The jokes bothered me a bit, but i never lost sleep over them. I don't think this is INFJ-exclusive.

    Fi types will internalize certain societal values and decorum (naturally), but there's more of a filter in regards to what they'll respond to or feel insulted by. An INFJ's stance is going to be a bit more automatic and indiscriminate.

    Even in your example, you seem to be more concerned with how the joke affects you, instead of the objective 'magnitude' of the offense.

    Yep. common sense, courtesy. That's me. Always worried about the comfort of people around me. No joke. Still don't think I'm an INFJ though. The cog functions don't quite sound like my brain's way of working.

    Read more about the functions and take a cognitive function test, if you haven't yet.

    Fe is like shaking a soda bottle with the cap off. Fi is like shaking it with the cap on.
