...how do they support popular (and more than not true) stereotypes?
INFP's are known for their compassion and listening skills, as well as a good poker face to a stormy emotional inside. We're also known for biting back at someone who infringes on our morals, despite our usual quiet and laid back exterior. And idealistically daydreaming, that's a huge one.
Fi explains the lashing back and idealism parts, Ne explains our daydreaming, but what explains compassion and listening? That almost sounds more Fe, unless I'm wrong, which is why I'm asking: which function explains the listening and emotional understanding an INFP is known to have?
