    The portion of the personality that can see the world and people at the very worst. Loving the darkness and wishing daylight would never come, as it is a bright reminder of how many people are watching you. Not wanting another meaningless conversation and wishing for something more.

    Envisioning being in a dark grey castle on the top of a mountain with no path, no way of any one accessing your fortress. Alone in a thunderstorm in your large library with your best friend, a black cat with shining golden eyes. Illuminated by candle light in this cold dark castle, one begins to wonder what their purpose is, why are they placed on earth as a minority that hardly gets recognized for their unique talents.

    Sure an INFP can be friendly, intelligent, witty, helpful. Also have a vivid imagination that is far more interesting than most daily cumbersome chores. But depending on the day or circumstances the INFP can strike a cold sinister stare right through it's victim like a cold steel knife. The dark side is unleashed with thoughts of hurtful truths and enough sarcasm you could.. ice a sarcasm cake and still have enough left over for cupcakes!

    Nothing is too morbid, gory or unbelievable for the INFP's dark side, a walk through a cemetery on Halloween during a full moon? Ideal :)

    INTJ - The Scientists

    The INFPs I know, with the exception of one, always struck me as more emo, than naive and cute. Either that or I always catch them in a depression.

    Well yes I think so, at least according to society's definition. Let me state right off the bat that A. I'm an ENTP, B. I have had nothing but bad experiences with INFP males in particular and C. I'm not sure how much stock to put into the Myers-Briggs...That said, I really do admire that ability to see the world not how it is, but how it should be. As the expression goes "Many die at 25, but are buried 50 years later". Too many people accept the way the world is and seem to be unable to comprehend that they have the ability to change it. INFPs see that, not to mention their ability to see the good in everyone. It is refreshing to see people who still have the ability to dream.

    However, immature and unhealthy INFPs can be a nightmare to be around. Not unlike thinkers such as my personality type, an immature or unhealthy INFP are so rigid in their values that there is no room for compromise. And that is something I have never understood about INFPs. On the one hand you can be some of the most open minded people. But if someone does not live up to your impossible standards for human behavior that you yourselves cannot live up to; you will throw them under the bus in a heartbeat, and not think twice..And you could even be a family member, best friend, lover etc it doesn't matter...You did not live up to some impossible standard, or you violated some value they uphold that they never TOLD you about, and now you've been assigned to the depths of hell. Meanwhile they can shit all over your values and ethics with impunity. And the mood swings...Oh God the mood swings...

    Again I think it's a difference between unhealthy and healthy, and thinkers can be just as inflexible when it comes to their ideals. Also aware I have some bias here. But personally, I'd rather avoid INFP men altogether, unless one comes along who is less selfish than the ones I keep running into.

    ENFP - The Inspirers

    I'm an ENFP and to a large extent having Fi-dom will have you controlled by your personal morals and beliefs. As an ENFP with Fi 2nd, and crucially Te in proximity in 3rd, I can sort of "strategise" my Fi and navigate life that way..

    Fi is the most subjective function of all, and is pretty much entirely stems from the inside -> out. Plus Ne is also a bit of a wild-child function which needs managing too. INFPs are dependent on circumstance, and people around them matching their values is SO crucial, there is almost no work-around if that does not occur. Fi will just become increasingly stubborn when it isn't fulfilled.

    A good portion of that went over my head considering I've never studied the functions; but I got the gist of what you were saying...Makes sense considering my experiences. It's funny because I am the exact opposite from INFPs when it comes to friends and loved ones. You could practically get away with just about anything short of selling drugs to underage kids and I would still not think less of you. If anything, if you start telling me how much people suck, I'll pull up a barstool beside you and agree right along with. Which is the exact OPPOSITE of INFPs.

    I definitely do, because I personally believe that is the way to enjoy lifeóbeing relaxed and keeping a childlike sense of wonder and curiosity. Itís more fun that way.

    The NP types are the children of God, the NJ types are the adults of God.
