This is a discussion on Are there any INFJ's out there who are not very fond of other people? within the INFJ Forum - The Protectors forums, part of the NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers category; I was just curious if it's very common for INFJ's to outright not feel very strongly or have positive views ...

    Are there any INFJ's out there who are not very fond of other people?

    I was just curious if it's very common for INFJ's to outright not feel very strongly or have positive views on other people all that much? I don't know if it's just a feeler thing in general, but it seems like it's almost this idealistic thing that comes with being an XNFJ in that you without question have to view humanity in a very altruistic and positive manner. The only reason I even asked is because supposedly Hitler was an INFJ and thus my curiosity was sort of pinged in that regard. Obviously, I secretly wonder to an extent how an INFJ can fall from 'grace' to such a degree and I was wondering if it was very common or likely.

    People are the skid-marks of the world's underpants. Persons are the only ones worth knowing.

    That's kind of a strawman though.

    It's recognition of the ugly truth of what People have chosen to become, and acknowledgement that there are some that still choose to stand aside from the nonsense.

    Yeah, people, eeesh.

    I don't discriminate. I'm eeesh, too.

    The trick is to embrace the eeesh.

    1. I do not believe Hitler was an Ni+Fe user of any sort, and therefore not an INFJ in my opinion.

    2. I feel apathetic towards most people I know and meet.

    I remember someone saying that "INFP's are the boyscouts of humanity and always want to do the right thing!" but I don't think that's true at all and I wonder where that comes from. I think all N's can be kind of prone to this, but honestly XNFJ's seemed more likely to have some kind of unrelenting desire to always see the good in people and champion causes like this despite circumstances or experiences. it's true, I think often XNFJ's are more likely to be grounded or acknowledge if there is "bad" in a person but I think they'll still champion good rather then be apathetic or cynical.

    It just seems like to be, if you have Fe then you automatically have to "care" about people and the like lol. Though I am sure that Fe could be used for other objectives at times. Honestly though, I wonder if it's the Je function that was partially the reason to blame for Hitler following through or even really formulating plans then any other function (if he was an INFJ)

    I never said I wasn't fond of people very much, I just wondered if it was more of an XNFJ thing to champion for causes, be social justice warriors an fight to see the "good" in humanity despite the odds. I think it's sort of the same with all NF's probably, but I have since become a lot more cynical and I can openly admit that I don't think humanity is "all good" and to kind of close myself off and become selfish. Though again, ugh I wonder if this is just strawmaning again. I don't want this thread to be made about myself.
