    What subjects do INFP guys enjoy discussing with other guys?

    As an INFP guy, I feel isolated most of the time. I am married, and I have a few friends. But mostly I keep to myself, reading or working. To feel connected, I will talk to other guys about weather, sports, whatever they are interested in. But most guys can sense I'm not that interested, and I'm not that interested. I like independent films, spirituality and writing. I am curoius what subjects other INFP guys enjoy discussing with other guys, so I can get more connected. Any suggestions?

    Yeah, I feel you. It's usually either about those topics or about women (in a superficial kind of way, suffice to say). The solution would be, obviously, to go find other NFs to surround ourselves with. But alas, that's easier said than done.

    Yeah. It's kind of hard talking deeply with people especily at gatherings. Most of my guy friends just talk about girls, and since I'm in high school, we're all basically horndogs. I don't mind them talking about bodies and all, but I never seem to find anything to say. I understand where you're coming from, hm.

    I do have one or two INFx friends tho, and usually we talk about art or video games. Or the people/stories in books. Or we talk about other people and our relations with them.

    Hope this helps

    Same here...every time we have a family gather all my aunts and cousins will sit around talking about makeup for HOURS. It drives me insane and I get soooo bored.

    For males...I had an INFx guy friend who would mostly talk to me about his opinions regarding politics, religion, culture, and his personal struggles. Even though I'm a girl, I imagine he would like talking about the same things with guys.

    Find an ISFP to make friends with, my best friend is one, and we have a lot in common and he listens to my weird philosophising streak.

    I know the type of guy you mean though, the traditional bloke. Yeah my dad is like that, I don't really feel that much in common with him, other than his taste in music.

    Sports, racing etc is all just whatev's. Go to some open mic nights and find musician friends, not only do they talk about music, they usually are fairly intelligent and like discussing other matters or at least listening to them.

    Movies are one way I relate to those kind of guys you are talking about. Get them talking about why they like certain movies and certain characters and then what they like about certain characters, you might be surprised about what they say, because it will give you a clue as to what they value in life, so even if they start to talk about subjects you don't find particularly interesting, you can at least start analysing them whilst they talk. lol . I do this, not to be rude, just sometimes I like hearing them get excited about a particular thing in life, so then I can appreciate and see their happiness and think 'wow, good for them', I may not always enjoy the conversation or want to be friends with them, yet I can still appreciate the human-ness of them.

    Also teachers are another good set of people to get to know, not all though some are NFs and if you do some volunteering at a local school, like I did, you may make a NF friend like I did. She is an ENFJ and lovely, and we chat about movies and life and share the same ideas about things, which is cool.

    So yeah, learn guitar or something, go to a jam night. Or talk about movies or make friends with teachers.

    The two guys that I hang out with the most are INTP and ISFP. The ISFP has a very developed N and so we all basically talk about philosophical things and psychology a lot. We have really connected and basically talk about anything. I find that an NT really brings a lot to the table when conversing, because they always have an interesting and intellectual topic stirring in their heads. Usually a topic that can also be discussed for a great deal of time.

    ISFP indeed. Otherwise just play along and try to drive the conversation to your level.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions. I play guitar, so going to open mike night sounds good. I might just get up enough nerve to play something, too. Movies are a good conversation starter. And volunteering is a good idea.
