    Do strangers tease you often?

    I'm wondering if it's common for INFJs to be teased by strangers?

    I've noticed this happens to me on at least a weekly basis - grocery store, Starbucks, cafes, etc (basically, anywhere that I frequent with my rather limited set of socializing lol). For example, today morning I went to Starbucks and ordered a tall caramel machiatto. The barista kept teasing me and said he wouldn't make one for me, although he'd make one for other people in line. At first I thought he was serious, and was a bit taken aback and even considered ordering another drink, but then I realized he was just teasing me. This has happened in other instances (even if I'm not a regular and have no previous contact with said stranger), although sometimes I don't realize I'm being teased or being made fun of until later. Have other INFJs commonly experienced this? I'm thinking that there must be something about our countenance that provokes this in other people so was curious to hear about other INFJ's experiences with this

    I see you are a female. Are the teasers male?

    This happens to me too! Especially from waiters, baristas, and customers that I serve.

    The ones who do it are, now that I think about it, almost always friendly middle-aged men. I think I tend to inspire a fatherly response in that demographic.

    aspera, it's interesting that you call it a "fatherly response" - I don't get teased from people within this demographic, but I have noticed I tend to inspire some kind of fatherly/patronizing response from people in this demographic, both at work and random encounters.

    To the crow - usually yes.

    Men tease. I do it, although I don't see it as teasing, so maybe what I do is different.
    I notice women, more than I notice men, and often compliment them, or be a little jokey.
    This does not mean I am on the make. It has been a long time since I was :)
    I just do it, and I think it's likely that many men do.

    You are a cutey and they are trying to make conversation with you!! Find a good comeback because you'll find a cute guy teasing you and you'll want to be ready

    Oh! Yes! I inspire lots of teasing. I can (usually) give it right back, though. Strangers (annoyingly) seem to find me pretty approachable, but the teasing mostly comes from friends and people I know. I seem to have a reputation for being easy to tease (or so I'm told). I've been told by some they enjoy my (over-) reaction.

    The teasing, btw, comes from both sexes, and pretty well all ages.

    Yes, all the darn time. And as it so happens to be, the majority of people who tease me are also of the male variety.

    ...and the majority of males who "tease" me say some really obscene things. Bleh.

    But once in a while someone would tease me to make me laugh because I generally look too serious. xD

    Usually when a stranger teases me, i know he's crushing, automatically making
    him a cutie. I'm usually ready with a witty cute comeback :)

    I remember the one you gave me:
    "Slave..." :)
    Nice one!
