I'm curious how different types react to rejection. This is what I've observed...tell me if it matches your experience or not.
After hearing "I just want to be friends".......
ESTJ: Is cool with it. Will continue to hang out as friends, while meanwhile trying to persuade you that he is the coolest and all other guys suck. Doesn't seem hurt/offended in the slightest.
ESFJ: Will convince you it is somehow your fault that you want to be friends. Or remind you that it was you who initiated things in the first place (even if you didn't). Lots of "Just remember, this is all your fault" stuff.
ISFJ: Will try to convince you that whatever your reason for wanting to not date them is wrong.
ISTP: No response, doesn't seem to care at all. You'll wonder if you presumed too much by even thinking they were into you. Perhaps they just wanted to get pizza and you were around?
ESFP: Will agree w/ all of your reasons for just being friends and then be incredibly charming to the point you forget why you wanted to be just friends in the first place.
ISFP: Will be pissed and insult you.
INFP: Don't seem to care and just fade away easily.
ENTP: Would talk you out of it with confusing, persuasive thoughts that sounded right at the time. With your head spinning from his "logic," you agree to keep seeing him. And then he'll break up w/ you. (one-up thing?)
ENFP: Will be very uncomfortable and awkward next time you run into each other and will say something like "yes, well. I'd better go get some cheese from the buffet..."
As an ENFP, I would react by being very "professional" to them. I'd say something like "well yeah, not everyone is a match! " Then I'd run home, sob, hold onto the anger for far too long, and wish bad things would happen to him. I'd then go to great lengths to improve every aspect of my life, in case I ever would run into him. And like a year later I'd forget all about it. Though that could be just me though.
