    That doesn't make sense just because one or two types is the most common result does not make it authentic.
    What about the other 14 types? That should raise awareness rather than lessen it.

    Do you think NJ and NP types make pop psychology tests exclusively? So you think NJ and NP types are the only type to become novelists? I'm saying those people are mistyped maybe not all of them but a lot of them.

    The word choice. Are you introverted or extroverted (introverted is kind of a trend right now) introvert check.
    Are you imaginative or realistic? Um of course I'm special Intuitive check. (Everyone believes they're smarter than everyone else)
    Are you compassionate? um feeling because I'm not some hard cold ass icy bitch. Feeling check.
    Are you disorganized? No I'm not some messy slob. I got my shit together. Judging check.

    Tl;dr MBTI has poor word choice.
    The questions on an MBTI test don't look anything like that, though. They're based on specific behaviors, thoughts, and motivations.

    Also, I've had several classes where we took the test, and there were one or two INxx's at most. Introverted intuitives are the most likely to be a part of this community because introverts tend to prefer socializing on the internet over irl, and intuitives usually prefer depth and theory over facts and everyday topics. Feelers might also be more likely than thinkers to be into MBTI because the test is technically unscientific.

    And honestly, I don't think people have any sort of intuitive bias while taking the test. Well, unless they're intuitive :') Most of the sensors that I know are annoyed by "unrealistic dreamers" and the like.

    * The high-and-mighty thing. I get that that's Ni for ya, and I love Ni normally, but there's something about the NiFe combo that just irks me. It's that whole 'This is the way it is/should be and you're an idiot for not seeing it or unworthy for not living up to that standard'. I know INTJs are prone to the same thing especially when it comes to work standards, but somehow I can smile better at that (I'm allergic to guilttripping Fe, so that might be it)

    * The martyr-thing. The 'Woe, me, I'm so tough for bearing this burden while nobody cares.' Not everyone is gifted in seeing that you need help. You have a mouth, you're not a child, ASK! Do NOT guilttrip.

    * Judgemental. Someone who doesn't live up to your standards and has a different pov somehow has to prove their worth to you 10 times before you'll even consider them potentially interesting, or so it feels, at times.


    Note: I'm aware that due to my own perspective and my limited sample pool of INFJs, this is bound to be somewhat subjective and biased. And it clearly mostly applies to the more..immature ones still. Hope this was what you were looking for
    Your post is exactly how I see it. I don't want to hate infjs...like actively hating someone is freaky, but they can get under my skin, and it annoys me to admit it. They just express themselves as if they sincerely yet somewhat unconsciously believe they are walking Jesuses. And I don't mean like angelic Jesuses. Just Jesus level worthiness for good or for bad. They will act like they wanna know you, even like you. Then the bubble bursts and you're like wait, that was just to get information out of you. Then you're realize they go solo, and wanna discard you. Great. So you adjust to that new impression of "needs no one", then you discover that they're butt hurt anyways. Oh wait they're all that shit yet sensitive like any other human being, even moreso. It's kind of maddening. It would be easiest to deal with blindly. Like those people that are oblivious to feelings....they wouldn't even notice the seething and the moral offense infjs take to everything.

    Oh one more... if you ever do a wrong lol FORGET IT. You've become Satan and must suffer. And since all humans do wrong, well good luck if you've got feelings for any infj. Because human being=full of flaws and I'm sorry but infj has the hardest time of all types forgiving flaws. But they say "no I am honest with my flaws and everyone has flaws and true love is to accept even with flaws, etc" but that's just words. The actuality is infj seethes at every perceived moral failing. And the beauty is they truly seem unaware half the time. It's like they don't get their own feelings.

    This is one thing I don't like. I feel like infjs sometimes they do calculate or just instantly react in a way as to prove that whatever they did was for your own good. But sometimes, I'm left with the feeling that it's just strategic and just not felt, even if authentic. Like they just found a way to get the outcome they wanted and placate people. Sometimes I find it insulting. If I compare to intjs, well intjs just don't do that kind of thing even though intjs also like control over their lives. I've never been offended that way by intj for all the control over their environment that they need. There is something subtle in infj that is just very hard to really explain, but it's like they are so ... hmmm... selfish. I don't know how they can present so well, because once you know them well, well that presentation really wears off. You see something else. It's like intj has a bottom line to have a certain power and competence but other than that wants to uphold certain positive values. But infj...the positive values are not inspirational to them. They get these urges to tear down other people's values/defenses, etc. if you watch infj closely, they watch you like a dog. What's your weakness. Collect. What's your vulnerability. Collect. All while presenting like Jesus level empathy. Fucking annoying. LOL are infjs under my skin much?

    Lol, I'm getting satisfaction recognizing things. Didn't know others saw these things..they make me feel completely insane in the head. I always think I'm delusional. But this is exactly how infjs can seem. Not all at all times...but yes several at many times.

    oh my god. i've seen this too. i can't believe someone else wrote this. it just make me feel less insane. i don't have a sample of 12, just 5.
    but the infjs win arguments leaving the "other" as the flawed individual who can't see things straight.
