INFJ Dating Bible or: How to Date an INFJ

Comments 8 Standard

this could be titled “the correct care and feeding of an infj” vs. “dating an infj”. wonder if I could hand this out to people I’m considering becoming serious friends with.
“Hey, man, I gave you an instruction manual, and according to Item 5.3.2, you have screwed up.”

The Sacred in the Secular


Note: I recently discovered the original website this list went to has been deleted; fortunately, I cached the list. Here it is.

INFJs are, by definition, rare, reserved, and unlikely to initiate anything, which means that many of them can end up alone and misunderstood. To help with things, Iโ€™ve compiled a list of points which I think would be of great use to anyone considering dating someone who identifies as an INFJ.

For most INFJs, omitting or distorting information is equivalent to lying, and at the very least will rouse their suspicion. INFJs have an acute sensitivity for stories which donโ€™t quite fit. At the same time, INFJs also like to assume the best and can be extremely gullible.

  1. I’m an INFP and inherently interested in stuff like this. ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re rather misunderstood, too. But, I’ve learned to embrace it and just roll with it, awkwardness in society and all. Haha.

      • Me? Dream? Never! My head isn’t in the clouds wondering…what book I’ll write next, what project I’ll take on, what orphanage I’ll start in some faraway place, what charity I’ll donate to, what new job I want to get, what new adventure I want to be on…nope, not me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. This is the most accurate INFJ portrayal I have ever read. INFJs account for just 1%! I also love that you featured Olivia from the show Fringe; perfect!


    • Lol, it’s what’s beautiful about you guys. The world needs more idealists and dreamers, keep being you…Before my life went nuts, I was with an INFP for six years. Our one ongoing argument was over the far-too-numerous stray cats in our neighborhood. We both agreed on taking them in, but my long-term was taking them to a vet and finding them homes, but she’d always fall in love with them and want to keep them…sentimental to the core. Not so practical in an apartment, though, lol.
