Young Cashier: How are you today?
INFP: Doing well. How are you?
Young Cashier: Good.
INFP: And why is that?
Young Cashier: -starts- What?
INFP: Why are you good?
Young Cashier: -wide eyed- Uh... -giggles and hides behind her hands- No one's ever asked me that before... why are you asking?
INFP: I dunno, striving for integrity.
Cashier: I guess I'm not really good. I miss my mom and dad.
INFP: Why do you miss them?
Young Cashier: I moved here and I haven't seen them for a year.
INFP: Where are you from?
Young Cashier: California.

…conversation continues, talks about her parents, about life...purchase completes...

INFP: Well, thank you.
Cashier: You're welcome. -bright and somewhat astounded smile- It was really nice meeting you! Bye!

He does this to everyone, and the response is always a mix of bewilderment and appreciation. My INFP is awesome. :heart:

Me: My parents are complaining about my hobbies again, specifically me talking about my hobbies because according to them coworkers expressing interest in my crochet is not “adult”

Boyfriend, @SynthinkingMuse: *eye roll* your crocheting is a survival skill, if there’s ever a some sort of societal downfall and an apocalypse, your family would be screwed and you’d survive because you know how to make cloth and have basic sewing knowledge.

Me: awwwwww

This is when you know you have a keeper, find someone who will willingly go with you to the craft store while you amass a yarn stash that rivals a dragon’s treasure hoard and proudly wears the scarves you make him.

me: what would you do if you had great stinking gobs of money, right now?
squishy programmer: probably pay everybody to stay away from me.
me: hmm. good beginning. then what?
her: i don't know. probably go out and buy some friends to put into my nice shiny clean life.
me: ...
her: shrug. it's too much work to make new friends from scratch. if i had the money, i'd probably just go pick up some store-boughten ones.

I'm guessing ESTJ. Maybe I'm wrong.

ESTJ: -holding up cactus themed stationary and mug- I love catcuses! :proud: They are so cool.
INTJ: I have a neat cactus at home. I can give you a start.
ESTJ: -blank stare- I don't grow them.
INTJ: … okay. Have you been to the conservatory [in da city]?
ESTJ: :dry: No. Why would I go there?
INTJ: If you like cactus, there is an awesome collection of exotic species. They also have a tropical section with carnivorous plants and wild-looking orchids. -makes chomping motions with hands- :kitteh:
ESTJ: You're weird.
INTJ: But... you said you like them.
ESTJ: I'm going to slap you.
INTJ: :confused:

INTP: Hmm I'll go find out
*leaves for 30-45 minutes, returns with coffee*
INTJ: Well? What was upsetting [name of dog]?
INTP: Huh? Oh. Yeah. It was a squirrel.
INTJ: ... :unsure:
INTP: A very exciting squirrel.

I go through this sort of thing with INFP, too. :laughing: And:

INTJ: okay, we have to leave in 20 minutes. Are you going to be ready?
INFP: Yes.
INTJ: -all prepped and packed, returns 15 min later to INFP in the yard- What are you doing?
INFP: Cleaning up the porch for winter. These tables need to be put away and...
INTJ: We can do that when we get back.
INFP: :unsure: -proceeds to put tables away anyway, and fuss around in garage-
INTJ: We need to go...
INFP: It will only be a second, I am almost done!
INTJ: :dry:
-arrive 30 minutes late-

Really don't want to ruin the feel of the thread but this reminds me of when me and INTP were moving and I told him that I needed him to clean ... something. I can't remember what, but we were prepping our previous house for selling.

I left to run some errands and when I got back, he was outside chopping firewood? He hadn't touched anything inside. We had a gas fireplace and we were never going to have a fire there again. He didn't do this to bring the wood to the new house. He just got a "I-need-to-chop-firewood itch". It was so bizarre!

Yes! I remember that story. You may have mentioned it here or in the vent thread when it happened. It struck me because INFP does similar, although slightly less bizarre... I asked if he could clean the bathroom and he unclogged all the sinks in the house and then went back to his computer. :confused: I imagine it started when he went to clean the sink, saw it wasn’t draining well, decided to unclog it... and it all went sideways from there. :laughing:

Okay, that is all the derailment I’ve got. :tongue:

*ENTJ and INFJ sit down at pizzeria*
INFJ: I wonder if this place accepts cards.
ENTJ: What place wouldn't?
INFJ: This place is, uhh... I better check Google maps for an ATM.
ENTJ: It's full of old people, sure, but they do know their stuff. I'm betting this place is authentic.
INFJ: It seems kinda.. weird.
*Italian guitar music starts playing*
INFJ: OMG, Italia! I'm certain now that you're right.

automation guy who i think is a co-intj: what's this?
me: doughnuts :smug:
agwitiac-i: i can see they're doughnuts [idiot]. what are you doing bringing doughnuts in here?
me: :laughing::laughing:
ag: it's a terrible act. *takes three doughnuts* and here i thought i could trust you and everything
me: now now, you know i'm only trying to help you with your designer-chocolate habit.
ag: oh right. "here. you're drinking too much coffee. have some crack cocaine." thanks a lot. *takes extra doughnut, retreats*


footnote: ten days later he shows up with a box of doughnuts crying "REVENGE!!!" in exactly the voice of michael palin from fish called wanda. it took an extremely long time for this guy to loosen up but boy has it been worth waiting for.

Me: I saw a really cool looking tree at the beach earlier today and wondered if you could tell me what kind it is?
Turi: Yeah, sure, I just need to see it to be able to tell you.

::2 days later in the car::

Me: *points* There, right there what is that called?
Turi: Hmm? Oh. That's a tree.
Sounds about as helpful as this guy:

snort. my counsellor is an emigrant too. much much more recent than me.

me: well; back then this was a pretty hick town. so you got all these people brainlessly pressuring you to say canada is the greatest country that ever was, and how ecstatic you are to dump everything and somehow find yourself here.
him: ...and that's changed?

INFJ - son (age 30's -- history of being "ungrounded") calling on phone, a rare event.

"Hello. Dad. I just called to tell you I'm getting married."

INTJ - father (very grounded fellow)

"Oh. Yea. That's nice to hear."

INFJ - son.

"Yea. You know. I'm getting my life together."

INTJ - dad.

"That's nice to hear. I'm glad you called."

INFJ - son.

"Okay. I gotta go now 'cause I'm at work."

INTJ - dad.

"Okay. I'm glad you called."

INFJ - son.

"Yea yea. All good news. Gotta Go. Bye." (hangs up)

*I think the INTJ (dad) is quickly assessing what is the best thing to say, while the INFJ is trying to deliver the message in the quickest way possible and exit as fast. Likely given it long though beforehand. Maybe 8 beers or so.

Girl talk.

ENFP: Oh, I thought you were looking at that guy who just went by.
INTJ: Nope. Why, was he attractive?
ENFP: Yes, he was.
INTJ: I'm sorry I missed it.
ENFP: -giggles-
ESTJ: -shows up- What, are you horny?
INTJ: Eh?
ESTJ: Yeah, you come here looking innocent but I bet you're kinkier than all of us combined.
INTJ: … I have no response to that.
ENFP: Ooh, she is freaky!
ESTJ: Let me see your arms. Give me your arms -examines wrists- Hmm...
ENFP: She probably has those soft Velcro ones.
ESTJ: Yeah, no marks.
INTJ: That would be indiscreet.
ENFP: What's wrong with that. :eek:h:
ESTJ: Don't you have a swing, ENFP?
ENFP: We'd have to move the bed so it would be under a support beam. Then we'd have no room to get around.
ESTJ: You could still do it.
ENFP: Nah, it was too much trouble...
ESTJ: Excuses!
INTJ: -escapes without notice-

Discussion on how a mutual friend is back with an abusive crazy ex

ENTP: I just don't get it why would someone stay in that kind of relationship...
INTJ: Well you're still with me after all this time...
ENTP: But you aren't crazy like that
INTJ: Yeah I'm my own kinda crazy... You'd tell me if I went overboard crazy right?
ENTP: Well.....
INTJ: *profuse sweating*
ENTP: I'm already crazy so maybe we should get a second opinion before you give me that power
INTJ: :rolling:

one for @Napoleptic. really it's none of my business what my colleagues wear, but a) mr product guy will actually discuss clothes like they're interesting, and b) at 8:47 am it all just seems too mockable for me to pass up. he begins to Explain.

him: it's a . . . like, a -
me: eh, i get it. it's a rugged individualist thing. one orange button declares your freedom \o/
him: precisely. well no, perhaps not quite like that.
me: oh? okay, explain it to me.
him: and i know he's thinking 'stop that'. it's a . . . like a . . . oh well, come on. you know.
me: no. i don't.
him: it's just a THING, okay? just a thing. i can't explain it. he just likes to make the last button a different colour.
me: like a warning system?
him: exactly. that's it. you got it. it's a warning.
me: ...
him: *looks wary*. okay?
me: of what?
him: *headdesk*
me: you mean like, a kind of Beyond Here Be Dragons type thing?

i wish now that i hadn't said it. coworker's todgers are the last thing i want to be drawing even theoretical attention to - even potentially theoretical attention. even intp humour-type potentially-theoretical attention. i was just making a sort of generalized kind of flat-earther joke; but like the shirt, i kind of found myself rushing over the edge of the joke before i caught on about where it was taking us to.

and it's too late now anyway.
