    INFPs are prone to cowardice in a day-to-day sense sometimes to the extent of villainy.

    Cowardice is a trait wherein fear and excess self-concern override doing or saying what is right, good and of help to others or oneself in a time of need—it is the opposite of courage. As a label, "cowardice" indicates a failure of character in the face of a challenge.

    Younger INFPs are heavy-handed and unsophisticated in expressing their Fi values but I don't think it's necessarily villainous. It's also something most INFPs just grow out of as their Ne develops.

    Not succumbing to cowardice and meeting life challenges is a life-long process for most INFPs, just as developing empathy, humility, or consistency are challenges for other types. Each type has it's weaknesses and those weaknesses can become villainous if not kept in check.

    INFPs sometimes fail to realize just how much others need them to be more responsible. As in "responding effectively to environmental demands". They are too absorbed in their emotional world to realize.

    Just because one thinks a lot, it doesn't make them INTJs even more so since he uses plenty of Si and no Ni at all. INFPs can overthink things, I'm definitely one of those. Overthinking and moodiness.

    And if you don't think Fi can be vengeful and bitter, take a further look into sexual Fours in the Enneagram.
    It's not a matter of being 'irrational' rather the hidden motivations behind someone's actions.
    I didn't say that because he thinks a lot he's INTJ and that INFP's can't think. Fi is nothing more than a process function, it isn't about how someone deals with the function, the content of it. It's just a tool that informs the Fi - user about how the Fi - user feels and what the Fi - user believes in him/herself. All Fi - user will do this. INTJ's do have Fi. They just don't use it as their first function. It's lower on their list, which means they are less aware of their own moral - convictions and are a bit more out of touch about how they feel about things the INFP does. Everyone can be bitter. Bitterness is a human emotion. MBTI is just about processes, not motivations at all! There are some reasons why people, like some IxTJ's are more out of touch with their feelings, child abuse is one of them. It's coping mechanism to bring the child more out of touch with the emotions. Of course NT's have emotions, but they can come in bursts of extremes because they're not that naturally in touch with them all the time. Snape's mostly cold and clearly not in tuned with his feeling core at all. Only around Harry we see things terribly popping up.
    And I don't see why would Snape be Si. Ni and Si are twin - functions. They both rely on past - experiences, that's what the ENFJ's say themselves. The difference is that N - users are always in the world trying to look for meanings behind it, and that's what we see Snape doing constantly. ISTJ's don't do that, ISTJ's look at shoes, clothes and the color of the wall. We see Snape constant sussing things out. He's absolutely not a sensor. He's absolutely not a P - type. He's to precise and clearly has a P - inferior. => NJ, means Ni. There are many things that proves his Fi and he clearly has zero Fe.
    I think you should read into the functions a bit further, I think you're basing on stereotypes, which isn't the best way to type. MBTI is about cognitive processes, less about result, or personality content/motivations.

    I think you should follow your own advice.

    I would like to hear a proper argument. You're lashing out on me because you're personally offended by something I said, when it wasn't meant that way. I'm not going to engage with you into a hotheaded fight. We're just discussing and sharing opinions on something. If you can't come of with an actual argument about what you stated, I'm not going to engage in this further.

    Projection much? I simply and calmly stated that you should follow your own advice.
    Read up on Ni vs Si and how tertiary Fi works since you seem to be the one going off stereotypes.

    I still would like to hear first your actual arguments on both those statements.

    That's is more likely an Ni thing and something I'd expect from an INTJ, or an INFJ.

    So as an INFP I was kind of bothered that we are often generalised as nice litte emotional poetic flowers with a few nuts, but no rocks or snakes. As I look at my past and as a child I would lie and steal things. I'd often do it to people I didn't like or people who I look back and were just too dry too rude too fake. I can't explain it. All I'd take would be pens, a tshirt, small toiletries. And you guys keep claiming that you'd never kill anybody. Aren't you glad you're not a teenager anymore haha. Anyways. Recently I read that the biggest insult to an INFP is telling them that they are not a good person. Well I had someone in my life who would trap me on a saturday(the only day i have to live and do things and be myself) and spend hours listing the ways i was a terrible person. I would cry and scream and appologise and the day would be wasted. this would repeat over the course of two years. this person always bringing to light my flaws and MINUTELY rude interactions with them. it got to a point where I'd tried everything. and let me tell you if I didn't beleive in a God somebody would have not been breathing for sure. I thought about it a lot growing up as little as 5 or 6 I would dream about how awesome my life would be without this person in my family. fast forward to highschool. where i go from a small town to the big city and I meet this terribly wretched witch of a person who picks on everyone. everyones too afraid to stand up to her because she'll even attack the teachers, verbally of course. like just think of your worst enemy to the power of 100. and boy is that girl lucky i moved away and didn't find out where she lived. i've considedered everything from burning her house down to pubic shaming to gasp! murder.

    Why no ones seen the bad INFP's, because we do exist

    one theory I have to why no ones found any terrible INFPs is this:
    I've been adicted to Nancy Drew, Hercule Poirot, Sherlock Holmes etc. ever since I found the Library. So this has obviously given me some knowledge as to the hows whens and wheres to getting away with crimes. If it is a consistent enough thing that this type of knowledge is as addicting to me as well as most other INFP's it's possible that we've committed crimes and just escaped being caught. We're perceived as nice and loving, but I'm not openly admiting to getting away with crimes but I won't deny it fully either. I think if you trap, harass an INFP and then surpress all your wrong doings behind a fake grandiose bravado around others, we could easily commit crimes against you. Maybe we already have.:exterminate::crazy:
