My ENFP friend was pointing out how Js usually avoid reacting (vs. avoiding planning). I don’t do just going with the flow that well. So, I would rather just follow someone who does.

There’s no logical reason for this mental assumption, just a post hoc of mine. I know 5 INFPs well, all of whom have pursued journalism, writing books, or blogging (or a combo of those). Odd coincidence?

It was odd hearing an INFP friend go off on different kinds of alcohol and the subtle taste variations between them. An INTP friend told me he expresses/relaxes with Si by playing fighting games. With the mass memorization of different combos, he finds it easy to enter flow. Oh, Introverted Sensing, you’re so alien to me.

In the last year I’ve cried around 3 male INFPs. o_0 They were all terribly kind. I like how soft INFPs are when being kind to someone dealing with emotion. (Also, my brother was found! Yay! <3)

I’m more prone to throwing myself into work and losing touch with my emotions. Just keep working.

It’s good to have friends that bring different perspectives.

I like hearing what INFPs think because I don’t normally think of the things they do. It’s often just slightly alien (or..y’know, a lot). Focusing on centering self is not something that comes naturally to me. I get caught up in problem solving. Just fix the problem, just do the thing, if this were solved everything would be better. But, I push through. INFPs usually remind me to walk, or look for different paths. I do run experiments but, I don’t normally think to focus them on myself. It’s normally I think Person X will respond best to Y, let’s see if that’s right. Not, I feel H, let’s try J.

I find it easier to be forgiving of other people than myself. Yet, intellectually is makes sense to focus on change from within.

If there’s one thing I would tell an NF on the job hunt: interview your boss. I had one that was passive-aggressive and micromanaged me. That job was a nightmare. At the same job, I later had a different boss who gave me freedom and sheltered me from drama—huge difference. A good boss can make a bad company acceptable, a bad boss can make a good company painful.

I was once told by an INTJ that he didn’t invite me to an event because he figured I would have troubles with the menu. T_T All the Ps I’ve hung out with view allergies as something else to consider when generating options but, not a big deal. Many Js I’ve hung out with get locked into whatever is safe and concerned with the worst possible thing happening.

<3 INFPs. Had this conversation several months ago, I was feeling a bit down and mopey. I like how INFPs will be in your corner and stick to their guns. If someone has been less than awesome to you, they don’t make excuses or trying to understand. Usually they’re vengeful protectors, which is something I adore seeing.
