    So are you male or female?

    This serves two purposes:

    1.) I can use these statistics to see if there are in fact more female INFJ's than male INFJ's.( I know there aren't enough people here to assume this statistics will be accurate, but it serves as a good reference)

    and

    2.) I can actually know to whom I speaking with and avoid the embarrasing situation of calling someone a "she" when it was really a dude in the conversation.(It has happen to me sooo many times ^^)

    Please only vote on the poll if you have preferences for the INFJ but you can state your gender on the thread itself if you have preferences for another type.

    Thank you

    Theoretically the rarest male MBTI type is INFJ, while the rarest female type is INTJ. If the theory stands, you'll have more females in your poll (out of those who vote, anyway).

    I wonder how much of that ratio is in fact influenced by gender roles and male/female stereotypes concerning the propensity toward logic and feeling. If women weren't socially constructed as 'feelers,' and men weren't socially constructed as 'thinkers,' I wonder if that would have any sort of impact on this distribution.

    This is true, too. Gender roles placed on us can make us think we should act a certain way, or that we "shouldn't" be masculine or feminine because the world categorizes us.

    I think it could be different if you grew up outside those gender boundaries, however, or if the typical roles weren't expressed. My mother had typical "masculine" characteristics and my father had typical "female" characteristics and I grew up with my mother, mostly. When I first tested MBTI I tested INTJ, because I honestly saw feelers as "weak" and I didn't want to be seen as weak.Which was funny, actually, because my own preconceived ideas on what I thought I should be skewed my test results.

    When I finally learned to accept my feeling side (and not feel embarrassed when I cried because my Mother never cried), I learned who I really was and I was able to accept myself - soft, feeling side and all.

    I think many men who come to the INFJ realization might have struggled similarly. It's difficult to accept because of the stereotypes places on male "masculinity."

    I agree arbygil. I was always considered a pussy growing up because I cried and would not fight back when picked on I just took it. And on one of the tests I scored a 50/50 mix of guy and girl thinking. So I think infj's are softies on the inside and have to be careful because of it. I am a strange mix of aggression mixed with a very soft side.

    The female one does sound a lot like me. I'm really bad at getting my needs known to others and when I do, it makes me seem weird.

    hehe there's been enough confusion on my gender as is.

    but I'm sure it's cleared up now.

    Why do you think I signed up on this forum?
    To seduce the ladies of course!

    (I need to prove my masculinity according to that article.)

    It's not that because I'm a very strong, powerful and superior male that I would harm you ladies.
    I shall protect you all against whatever you fear, for I am fearless!

    Yes, and I DEMAND THE NAKED POLE DANCING VIDEO.

    Is this the right way to do it?
