Or is it* just me?
Even though I'm not an INFP I think I can safely speak for the INFPs I know in my life. They're expressed to me that they like my innovative style of thinking. I tend to come up with ways at looking at life with an intense thoughtfulness the INFPs in my life don't find much in others. I mean, given that my personality is uncommon, naturally I see things differently than most everybody. Of course, it seems entirely logical to me with what conclusions I draw about life events but to someone else it doesn't seem that way at all. So you can imagine I get a lot of "Whoa I didn't think about it like that" responses from people. So no, the INFPs in my life don't view me as a bore. Maybe, more or less, that I act as an equal to their perceptions of the world.Or is ti just me?
Yeah, I understand. And through them spending time with me they have learned to appreciate my grasp on putting out innovative ideas, something the INFPs in my life do also, thus they don't consider me a bore.I don't really mean in innovative ideas, I mean in spending time with.
sounds liek my mom..she jsut kinda cares about keeping up appearences, and she over works herself all the tie but, she is a sweetheart!My mom is an INFJ I don't foind her boring I do though find her crazy in a good way.
We do clash on a lot of things mostly how she ALWAYS thinks about the future and how she loves to clean and is really up and go instead of relaxing. though but I absolutley LOVE her sense of humor
she always makes me laugh.
I don't think it's a type issue. Some people are just boring. You also don't know for certain that you've seen the person you're judging to be boring with his or her guard down, so to speak, especially since he or she is apparently an introvert.Perhaps. So what type would INFP likely find to be a bore?
I totally get what you are saying about the similarities versus differences. The similarities we seem to have, at least in my experience, can lend to really deep connections and understanding between the INFP and INFJ, but then some of the differences are very different indeed. That can lead to enhanced intrigue, but also confusion.I don't think it's a type issue. Some people are just boring.

Back to the original question: I like INFJs, generally speaking. I find them kind of fascinating in that they have a completely different function set which yields a very similar personality to that of an INFP. We're very similar in some respects yet totally different in others.
