    Are non-INFJs still welcome here?
    (Can other types be welcomed, if they don't think, speak and act exactly like an INFJ)?



    Asking because there's been a number of INFJ members sending conflicting messages recently.

    I think that would be me. Sorry, everyone. I poked the bear. Of course, you are welcome and wanted here but don't be surprised when I react if you post things that are meant to manipulate us (snuggle bunny?) just to see if you can get a certain reaction from us feelers out of boredom. I accept you as you are, even if I don't agree with you.

    No hard feelings?

    It wasn't you. There's three very explicit members, plus a group which likes those explicit posts.

    They must be in an area I avoid. Perhaps it's because you enjoy arguing? We INFJs tend to strive for harmony, as you know.

    I don't know about liking arguing per se... it's more about not liking nonsense objections. If someone makes a good point, I'll agree. If I make a good point and someone disagrees, that's fine as well. However, when someone makes a nonsense objection, I reply.

    Yes absolutely all MBTI types are welcome here, it's been said many times. We all benefit from having a wide diverse cross section of people. No one has to behave exactly as an INFJ (how would anyone be able to assess that in any case?) but the forum has a certain vibe or culture, and some rules. Most people seem to have very little problem with them, people post here because they enjoy it and find it interesting. I guess if they didn't they'd find another forum.

    I've noticed a particular person making negative comments about this not being an exclusive INFJ forum. I didn't expect him to be anti-INFJ.

    I also suspect that INFJs harbor resentment that they do not feel they can kick the non-INFJs due to some F hangup they have.

    Sometimes a "like" is also meant as a statement of empathy for the person who expresses a particular opinion,
    it's showing a sympathy with their sentiment if you like, rather than being a 'political' statement about taking sides.
    I think overall everyone is pretty tolerant here, and the occasional swipe is sometimes, in the context of wind-ups and flogging of dead horses, understandable.

    I'm sorry to read that. If you PM the details I will check that out if you wish. As INFJ seem to be the majority of staff etc I think if that was what was wanted, they'd do it. I have never once heard that from any staff member, in fact always the complete opposite. For me personally if that was done, I'd probably be unlikely to stay on here.

    INFJ maybe private types but I can assure they like to 'mingle' with all different types, and take onboard others perceptions and views. We are as a type deeply interested in people generally. There are many non INFJ members here. The more the merrier.

    No, I would not like to out this person as I think he has the best of intentions and was caught ranting a hopefully momentary feeling he had. If it were to continue then '' let you know thanks.

    I remember there was an anti-INFP and anti other type vibe here at one time, that made it toxic to be here. But after a while, that went away, and people learned to appreciate each other more beyond type. If this continued, I would not be here. So, I appreciate that things have changed, and that we are more tolerant of all types. Any anti non-infj sentiment should not be stated and should be squashed. As @hush said, we will have disagreements with each other, but we need to learn to engage with each other as a community without fighting each other. Understand there will be differences, but those differences are not ones of inferiority or inadequacy. Wanting everyone to feel or think like us destroys individuality. We all could learn to appreciate each other more and quit insulting, attacking, or demeaning each other. Let the egos go, and just learn to value each other's contribution. *end speech . . . waits for applause . . . hears crickets instead :D*
