    I reckon there are some types INFJs would generally get along better with than others, goes for all types but there are always exceptions depending on the individuals. There aren't a lot of people in the portion of society I inhabit who would bother taking the time to get to know and understand me. Acquintances are content with superficial relations so I find it difficult to establish a friendship connection with them. I also have social phobia, which causes me to often isolate myself on purpose. My best friend is ENFJ who I'm closest with and ISFJ, but we've drifted due to moving schools.

    What about you? I wish there were more people on this forum!!

    I tend to have no problem of having bestfriends.. many of them consider me as bestfriend coz i'm a great listener and good emphatizer.. but actually from all of my bestfriends there's only a few of them that i found comforting, some of them are close with me coz i adapt with their personality.. i don't know which personality are they, coz they never take test, probably they have NT personality..
    but the one i consider as my bestfriend who's understand me so much are an INFJ too and an ENFJ..

    are u still in highschool know limetree?
    where ar u come from?

    Yeah, the ENFJ are our natural pals and they are very easy to relate with. Wish I knew more of them...male and female. I find anyone in the NF easy to be friends with. My best friend I believe is an ESFJ...possibly P, but, I'm pretty sure ESFJ. I've always seemed to have a motley crew of friends. It doesn't seem to matter.

    i have one ENFJ best friend, he's a male and i think he's nice.. i can totally understand all of his vision about life..
    he's some sort of a leader in one of social community in my city.. and sometimes he can be such a great leader because he always willing to sacrifice everything for the good of the member..
    but sometimes,if anything don't go according to his expectation he can be a bit restless.

    anyway.. i'm agree with u Jen, NF are easy to be friends with..
    btw how many best friends do u have Jen?
    'n from all of them who u really is match with ur character?

    I have a handful of them that I consider BF. The majority of them are ENFP, the best is ESFJ although she says she is INFP *cough* BULLSHIT! *cough* I do believe that her N is more developed than most S types I know, but she will let me know when I am overanalyzing or going to far out for her.

    My ENFJ friend sounds a lot like your ENFJ friend. Community wise, but that's an ENFJ for ya. Gotta love them.

    I used to have a lot of friends when I was younger in my neighborhood. And I did get along with everyone, but there were a few people who did not like me. It was difficult to stand by them and laugh and joke, knowing that they disliked me. I avoided conflict, so I just attempted to be nice to them. And there were times where I got so angry I battled my way to getting some kind of respect out of them. That lead to many long ass, annoying fist fights. I did have a best buddy (INTJ), I still do in some ways, but he's gotten so distant (mentally) in the last four or five years. So now I find it difficult to have a new best friend because my last one is fading away due to his anger issues. I feel like I can't trust anyone and that feeling alone sucks. Overall, I think I'm more guarded now and I come across as being cold more often because of my experiences.

    INTJ - The Scientists

    I seem to be a people magnet
    No but seriously i find it very easy to get to know new people, it is at some extent strange; I know when i have won another possible friend, and it is usually rather fast in the first couple of minutes when i get to know someone.
    I can notice how they find my loyalty, charisma, and feeling side compelling. I just love to see how everybody is at ease and happy, so i do take charge when having projects in college and i really like the idea of having different friends in different classes. I usually get along with everybody, i don't believe in discrimination and grouping, for me that just doesn't exists
    I am very open to hear what everybody has to say and that makes it interesting. Hearing them is like expanding my reality with new, sometimes similar and sometimes contradictory ideas.
    Most of my friends introduce me to their friends and they end up being closer to me
    This all is great but after a day of interacting i feel just worn out; my battery depletes completely, that's why i love to have my time alone it's a great time to meditate, and interact with the paranormal .

    The funny thing is, i am not as open when giving up personal information. I restrain from telling everybody my theories and how i believe the universe works, i'm just good at knowing what everyone else needs, at it isn't usually such things that i like.
    This is the reason why i don't feel like i have lots of best friends. These people do care about me, and i care about them, but i just can't feel that deep bond, such as the one i have with my brother (INFP), my best friend and my cousin (both ESFP's) and the guy i most interact with and have fun, an INTJ. I Also have a great bond with an ENTJ friend who is clearly a genius and who i know since i was born LOL (our mothers are friends since high school).
    These are my closest friends. But i do get along with lots of ENTP's who are really mad and with whom i get to release some strange theories to provoke hardcore argumentation between them and ENFP's who i love to turn the table when they try to move me into doing something
    It is so funny to "just know" how things are going to develop, predict next people's move and such, then making them aware of that in an indirect way. My friends just know i can´t be fooled LOL, but this also encourages them to try it more and more.

    Anyways since i got to knew mbti i feel compelled to identify and archetype each and every person i know. This makes it easier to make friends and has gave me much more understanding.

    I get along with just about everyone, except very dominate, aggressive types. I just avoid them and let them do their dominating elsewhere! My husband is (surprise) an ENFP. I think the NF is key for sure. We share the same passions and complement each other in every way! He's also my BF, though I do have a small circle of people I also consider BF's. I'm very selective about who I allow in this group and they are the ones I share my innermost thoughts, wishes and dream with. I have quite a few people I consider acquaintances that I'm very friendly with, but they aren't in my inner circle. Their communication style and interests are much more superficial than what really interests me in a BF.
