My first thought when reading your description was INFJ. INFPs are supposed to be the typical writers, as in lots of famous writers are supposed to be INFPs. I have on INFJ friend and though she likes to write (including long sincere emails), I'm not impressed with her writing skills.
Maybe in fact, we (INTP/ENTP) have thise Ne/TI who makes us very sensitive to words and writing skills...

INFP.

If he's not an INFP then he's exactly like two INFP males I know in many, many ways. Wow, I didn't even have one doubt about the type as soon as I started reading and the rest just confirmed my initial suggestion!

(didn't read the thread so I wouldn't get influenced by people's comments) :)

I wouldn't classify a type based on writing ability. Writing is a skill and therefore can be developed or not developed by any type depending on their association with it. While I do believe each of the two types mentioned may write in different styles, whether or not their material is "good" or "impressive" is meaningless.
I actually agree with this. I gave the exemple of my friend as anecdotal evidence that INFJs didn't have to be great writers. As for the INFP as writer thing, it's just something that I've read a lot, so I was surprised that a person could be sereotypically considered INFP rather than INFJ because they don't write well enough (the reverse would fit the stereotype better).
Anyway, interesting website, thanks!

so the majority is thinking INFP right ?

When we first met, he told me we have to go to public places only because he would be scared that I would put medication in his drink and make him fall asleep... Aahha ! That's Ni... right ?

The thing about this guy is that though he matches well some INFP description, I am impressed how easily he reads me (though I am not easy to read as a thinker). I think this might show some Ni.
2 examples :
- I got to talk with him about some bad circomstances that happened a long time ago and might explain a little who I am today. Well, better said, he got me into talking about this (things I usually never mention so quickly). I mentionned it as a thinker : that's what happened, that implies that about me today. And I was impressed how deep he got the possible implications of my personaly history. He mentionned very accurate possible behaviors I could have today, without me mentionning anything about it. He related to how I feel today about this and what it implies on my outlook on life. I was impressed.

- I said something that appeared as agressive earlier this week. He immediatly got that I was not agressive but stressed, tensed and got all the hidden reasons why I was so. All the unconscious tension I had in me. When he told me what I was feeling and why, I was impressed because I didn't realise it myself before he told me. But everything he told me was so true. And somehow he managed to release my tensions that way.

So that's Ni right ? Is that typical for INFPs (healers) or INFJs (strong Ni) ?
this said he's very much into let's be free and not control each other (which is very xNxP in my opinion)

Another thing that might help :
He's very much into healthy leaving and eating. And even into some creepy theories about that. But he's ready to do a kind of organic, plants eating camp to supress the toxins of his body this summer. Not sure this is INFP or INFJ ?
