Reminds me of this instance with the INFP I had a crush on.

INFP: "Do you want to go to A or B?"
INTJ: "Dunno. You pick. I've been making too many decisions lately"
INFP: "I really don't care."
INTJ: "Flip a coin?"
INFP: "Alright. Heads, we go to A. Tails, we go to B."
INTJ: "Heads."
INFP: "So... Really? A? Can we flip again?"
INTJ: "Screw that. Let's just eat in the dining hall."
Haha the only difference from the person you quoted and the person you crushed on was that your crush actually had a preference XD

With all the INFPs I met and including myself, we seem to be great with S P A C E. :D

i don't care what people think of me!

*waits to hear criticisms from non-INFPs, prepared to cry in corner*

just kidding. i love that i've genuinely stopped caring about other people's opinions FINALLY. this is a great benefit of getting older: you realize that time is precious, and wasting it on someone's opinion of me is no way to live. especially if that someone doesn't care about me.

yup.

:O How cute! I much desire to have one! Pray tell, madaam, where might I find another INFP of this caliber?

Might we have hugs and cuddles together? :)

Yup - I actually think INFPs really just get better with age! ;)

I think the cat description is fairly accurate, especially with our tendency to show a lot of affection and then pull away for a while. It's like when you want to pet a cat and they give you an irritated look and go back to licking their crotch, then twenty minutes later they jump right on the book you're reading and remorselessly purr in your face. I like my fellow INFPs a lot, I think they're fascinating people with incredible imaginations. The only gripe I generally have is the flakiness. It's irritating to make plans with someone and have them either show up an hour late or bail at the last minute.

Decision making is always a hilarious loop too.
"Where do you want to eat?"
"I dunno, what are you in the mood for?"
"I'm letting you pick, I'm up for anything."
"Me too, I don't really have a preference."
"You have no preference whatsoever?"
"I'm open..."
On to infinity.
I... am a professional illustrator. I am going to draw a cat mascot for us INFPs and use it in my signature box thingy. Anyone can use it. XD

Also, my ISTJ buddy and I do that loop, too. It pisses her off. I never decide anything. It's always her. Eventually, after we're looping for a minute or two, she'll say, "GOD DAMNIT!!!!!!! JUST FUCKING PICK A PLACE!" Hahahahahaha. I love making my ISTJ mad. Now I want to do it just to irritate her!

I just don't want to pick somewhere she doesn't like to eat, because I *know* she will say "That's fine! Let's go there!" even if she doesn't like that place because she's really a "friendship is a two-way street and you do things your friend wants to do even if you don't want to" kind of a person, and really, I *am* up for anything. Except KFC. KFC can go to hell.

Hahahahaha... the INFP loop. I so want to elaborate on that, because remembering a convo with my ISTJ is making me laugh. I'm sure you all will appreciate it because you've all been there.

ISTJ: I'm starved. Wanna go get some food?
Me: Yeah, I'm really hungry, too.
ISTJ: Where do you want to go?
Me: I don't care.
ISTJ: *sighs... knowing the loop is about to happen* Me neither.
Me: You pick.
ISTJ: No... you pick. I picked the last thousand times.
Me: I really don't care.
ISTJ: I don't either. You're picking this time.
Me: Well, what are you in the mood for?
ISTJ: *in her hysterical high-pitched voice she gets when irritated* I don't care! Just pick a place!
Me: Okay, let's get Chinese.
ISTJ: Yayy! :D Okay! I love Chinese!
Me: *debating whether or not she really wants Chinese or if she is just being accommodating to what I want... and I really want Chinese* No... let's go get Mexican.
ISTJ: Oh my God...

Hahaha... that was the conversation I had with her regarding food when I hung out with her last. We finally pulled in to a Chinese restaurant (like... the parking lot... not IN the restaurant), but at the end, she decided that Mexican sounded awesome. Plus, they have raspberry margaritas. See. We INFPs are psychic.


... is that the flakiness everyone is talking about? Cause, if so, I never realised how flaky I am. :x

LOL... aren't there like a buh-gillion-killion-zillion threads like this that already exist? x) Oh, INFPs, why do you worry so much about what other people think? <3
I'm curious, but that's all. It's not going to make or break my day (is that even a saying?) what someone thinks of me. :) Honestly, I always see us INFPs as being more true to ourselves and authentic no matter what. I think if we truly cared what others thought of us, we'd stop doing the things people criticise us for. I think we're just naturally curious and it SEEMS like we care. :D

Hm, as far as the food thing goes, while I definitely get caught in the indecision-loop with people (and with another P it's REALLY BAD), if/when I do assert my preference, they'll contradict it! I'll be like, "Okay, let's go to Thai Restaurant" and they'll respond, "Nah, I don't feel like that."

Firstly, I think it's part of a saying, I just don't think I've heard it in that context. :p Secondly, yes, I agree with the curiousity thing. I didn't start this topic because I was insecure and wanted to know how to change for people- I started it because I honestly just wanted to know what light we were viewed in. Which, by the sounds of it, is the case for a lot of INFP's. And, as such, wanted details, because a lot of the topics I've seen their thoughts weren't entirely justified. Just wanted more info. ;)

On a further note, I think it is very common for us INFPs to take common sayings and create new contexts for them. XD I notice I do that all the time.

Haha, I've been there so many times. Most of the times with my INFP friends I end up being the one who picks just because I have no desire to continue the cycle forever. I have one INFP friend though, he is so terrible with picking restaurants. My last apartment was in the arts/LGBT district and it had very literally about 300 restaurants in a mile radius. And my friend would always be like, "uh... um... okay McDonalds." Which would make me facepalm until I just stopped asking him for input. Then our conversations would be more along the lines of "Are you up for Ethiopian?" "Sure." "Great, lets kick it then."

Okay, I have a friend and we are becoming closer. I think he's a INFP. I love INFPs. Here's why.
INFPs always have some romantic aura about them. It's beautiful. I can't really describe it.
I like to add that they have a quiet intelligence that many people don't see. They posses a high emotional intelligence as well, which is endearing and often a pleasant surprise. They have a innocence that remains despite this ugly world and it's welcomed in my world. That's why I love INFPs..... I hope I answered your question.

LOL you're not alone on that one. :p Of course, when I put it in a new context, I do doubt whether or not it still makes sense.

Empathetic, intelligent, deeply thoughtful, genuine, loyal to themselves and those they care about, "different" in the best way.

Although they have many wonderful traits I think many INFPs also often have to fight tendencies toward pessimism, self-pity, flakiness and reclusiveness.
