    Possibly said because we "think" with our hearts, and we have massive hearts.

    Fi + Ne can appear irrational, even stupid. It's those bullheaded, subjective truths
    we insist are right, even if they have no basis in reality. It's something I've seen in myself,
    unfortunately--the whole 'my truth is right because it's mine and you can't take it away from
    me' spiel. Ugh. For me, it's reacting emotionally in the moment that's the problem; if I step
    back and reflect on it later, my irrationality becomes apparent.

    I've always thought the "air-headed" type of stereotype was ESFP? Which is why I take it as anything but a complement and perhaps a poor illusion to my lacking in the intelligence department when people type me as such.

    I've noticed that, in general, F types, particularly xxFPs, are shrugged at as emotional airheads in online typology communities. ESFJs seem to get a lot of shit, but not so much for being airheads.

    No.

    If the INFP in question is intellectually-oriented, they could be very stimulating. Their strength might be in areas like critical theory, meta-ethics, psychology, literature; things encompassed in "existential intelligence". Camus and Kierkegaard are two common examples of intellectual INFPs.

    It's definitely possible for a single INFP to be "airheaded," but airheadedness doesn't align with typically measured traits of the type itself if we're going to consider them as a group.

    "Official profiles" are as variable as an author's imagination.

    Those who don't grasp Fi are often too quick to judge it as frivolous nonsense, yes. Add to that the abstract, whimsical, often seemingly random nature of Ne and a stereotype is born.

    However, their perception is hardly reality - just lazy pigeonholing. It's easier than admitting you just don't get it and are unwilling to actually sit back and learn.
