    If ENTPs are unicorns what are INFJs?

    The question came up in a conversation with another member. We thought it fitting to get the INFJs input on this deep philosophical question.

    Why are ENTP's unicorns? I feel like context is required.

    I agree that some justification for ENTPs' inherent unicornliness needs to be presented.

    Regardless, for INFJs I'll say wolves. Pack oriented, but oftentimes also solitary creatures with piercing eyes and adorable good looks. Yeah

    I feel like this is some kind of set up to imply that INFJs are virgins...

    The unicorn gets killed at the end of that story if I remember correctly, so ENTPs beware.

    Mermaids



    I have seen many ENFPs claimed the similarities between Ariel and the ENFP core traits, but I've always felt the descriptions of mermaids from Western mythology description fits INFJs more.

    And here's why:

    Mermaid women feel they are a part of nature. They have a non-human identity. Some aspect or element of nature is alive within them, and that is who they sense they really are. Among other things, this allows them to accept the world as it is. Some perceive the world as being richly satisfying and fulfilling. And yet this evaluation is not based on the extent to which their personal needs are being satisfied.

    Also, mermaids are not greedy. They are not driven to possess whatever they can in order to ensure their own security. This I find myself strikingly similar to the core INFJ's philosophy as we cherish our psychological mind through enriching and feeding our Ni without any interference of Se (Dom. vs. Inf. functions). Both INFJs and mermaids intuitively experience themselves as already part of the richness of life without double-checking with our Se, which is also our inferior function. They experience the abundant energies of life flowing directly through their own bodies as time always doesn't seem real to INFJs.

    One factor contributing to this outlook is that both mermaids and INFJs usually have excellent childhood memories. we can frequently recall childhood dreams, dreams that still influence us as we consider our goals in life. Most INFJs often have had spiritual experiences when they were very young perhaps due to dom-Ni, but they do not view these dreams and experiences as somehow removed from the adult they have become. Rather, they see them as seeds that are in the process of growing into fruition.

    When it comes to dealing with emotions, mermaids have powerful psychic empathy (our Ni-Fe) as they seem to have the ultimate power to feel what others feel. And this opens the door of emotional independence and detachment (our worst curse imo) from both types as I often found myself that though I can be empathic, I can also be detached. Yet when it comes to relationships, perhaps (based on my own experience) when doubts hit us hard from our SO, there comes a moment where I realize that men can not be loved as we hoped for the way we love. When this happens, sometimes INFJs might felt frustrated with their confusion and their innocence and uninhibited sensuality are beyond average (even SO's) understanding. To put it mildly, this is when I see human beings as not being fully alive and I know mermaids share the similar judgment as well.

    That's when we start to become more secretive, or adept at concealing of things we do not wish to share when we have given up on hope that toward people who are the closest with us after a few let-down. Mermaids also adept to conceal their identity when dealing with humans, when feeling suspicious of others.

    So all these factors are strikingly similar to the core traits of INFJs. Thus I found myself often connect INFJ personality type with the legendary mermaids, despite the fact that my analogy may seem darker when compared to ENFP's version of comparing themselves with mermaids.

Ariel has ALWAYS and will ALWAYS be my favorite character for life! Everything you said was true and I think for the females, we can surely relate or at least I can.
