This is something I've been wondering about for quite a while now... But what do people mean when they describe an INFJ as being "complex"? There was a thread here maybe last week or thereabouts where there were some INTPs giving a favourable opinion of INFJs and some of the explanations why included "complex".
What is so complex? I figure that irl I seem complex or deep to a lot of people mainly because they don't know me and have never really tried to. Because I'm usually quiet and don't randomly offer stuff out of the blue, when I do say something they're usually quite surprised. I'm thinking this is because they didn't have much in the way of experience or expectations to compare my response to. Maybe they assume that quiet people are shy, hollow people who have no thoughts... *shrugs*
But if someone asks me questions, even personal ones, I usually answer quite honestly and will answer them like 95% of the time. I'm not hiding anything. I'm not trying to get people tangled up or show them some obscured picture.
I guess I feel like... I don't consider myself complex. What is it that makes the INFJ seem like such a puzzle? Or... what is the puzzle?
And... why is it INFJs are often called complex but INFPs rarely so? Do INFPs seem more consistent and less self-contradicting or something?
