    Awww yeah INTJs want this XD

    Something special? I don't know.
    Something awesome? Certainly.

    Because I'm all "pew pew" and they're like "Tom, please get out from behind the couch" and I shout back "YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE COPPERS, pew, pew".

This is a good way of becoming more feeling, having a close friend to guide you, safe in the knowledge that whatever you do they probably won't be scared off. It's refreshing. Very. QwQ

    I think it boils down to this: Don't bother with being careful with them, they're not that fragile. But still, watch the cynicism.
    This. That's exactly how me and my former best friend were! And thank you :) we ARE swell folk, aren't we? As long as you don't step on any of our values!

    Anyway, with my best friend and I, I knew how she was, so I wasn't offended in the least by her constant sarcasm or dark humor. I tend to be that way myself humor-wise, so it was never a problem.

    Our conversations usually went something like this:

    Me: "Dude, stop worrying; I'm not going to burn myself."
    Her: *raises one eyebrow* "We'll see..."
    Me: *burns self*
    Her: "Hey, is that a burn on your hand?"
    Me: "Shut up!"

    Me: *excitedly* "Hey, what's up?!"
    Her: "You seem chipper today. Stop it."

    And many other iconic examples XD our friendship was the greatest!

    But, the moral of this is: don't underestimate us. We're not all overly-sensitive. Give us a chance and we may just surprise you :) I certainly surprised my INTJ.

Those ones just make me feel like a bull in a china shop -- I kinda just want to leave before I break anything. Even some of the ones I could banter with eventually fell off. Probably because I crossed some line somewhere. Oops. I noticed that the OP referenced her "former" INTJ best friend . . . former friendships are presently unfortunate.
    OMG! I can't believe you'd generalize most of us like that! I can't believe how hurt my feelings are. I'm so wounded, my day is gonna totally suck now. I knew I shouldn't have gotten out of bed this morning,,,,,,,,,




    ha ha just messin with you. you INTJ's are wonderful...........for the most part. just sayin.

    As I said, I don't know many, but sadly, I tend to avoid the ones I know through experience - not because I didn't try. The few INFPs I know seem like nice people, but when I am open and honest they often get their feelings hurt. When I use a little dark humor sometimes they'll laugh but sometimes be offended. Sometimes they'll lash out for no apparent reason - sometimes at me, sometimes at whoever is in range.They do seem quite fragile to me, and I have to continually edit myself, keep my opinions to myself, offer a lot of verbal cheerleading, and basically tiptoe around them. I'm glad to know this this isn't true for everyone's interactions, though. I'll keep trying.

    INTJs never banter.

    Also, we are never sarcastic.

    That's so sad. I understand the generalization, but it just keeps people from meeting and enjoying others that they may actually jive with. Sometimes I hate these letters we have after our names. They help to differentiate, but by no means are conclusive to who exactly we are. (I'm not sure why i winked, it's not like I have some kind of inside secret or anything...)

    And then y'all wonder why we like to tease INTJs ;)
    Although I agree that some INFPs are too snappish to banter, ENFPs however...

I enjoy her willingness to be so open and honest about how she feels about things going on in her life and around her.

    Its a good back and forth. I tend to point out all the little flaws in her logic and tease her about it while she has a habit of seeing through my "INTJ BS wall" and doing the same in return.

    P.S. Hedgehogs, best pets ever!
    That's exactly how my best friend (girlfriend? We definitely had feelings for each other... I'm honestly not sure what to call her XD but that could have it's own thread!) Anyway, she felt the same about me! She always said she admired my ease with emotion -- especially helping her make sense of hers, when they came up once a year, or so XD

    We had an amazing relationship that was FILLED with inside jokes, whispered witty remarks, and constant sarcasm that would leave other people thinking we were crazy. It was the best. Although, we had a very complicated relationship as well, which, again, thread of its own that you probably wouldn't want to read, anyway.

    The other INTJ I know is exactly the same, if a fair bit more elusive -- probably due to the fact that we aren't in love with each other! Although you guys are pretty elusive even when you ARE. Anyway, she makes no attempt to talk/hang out with me at all, so it's the complete opposite extreme and rather jarring.

    You folks are an enigma! But I love you :)
