    Default I have une question

    It's ok though. So anyway I'm kinda shit faced... Anyway. I find that it is usually the case that IEIs are kinda sheltered... and that EIIs are kinda non-interested in being exposed to quote un-quote the world as i would say
    so how do you just you tell the difference between an IEI that just hasn't seen shit and an EII that just doesn't want to?

    like what the's difference?

    I would like to see straight plox

    Not sure about IEIs, but EIIs will just shut down if you try I think. Become non-reactionary and immovable, like they've seen a ghost.

    I think this is an nf thing in general. I think that both infjs and infps are similiar in this respect. And you're driving yourself neurotic trying to put us in this box where you somehow think infp = unable but willing and infj = neither able or willing. How did you drive to such a conclusion anyway? You're just some good looking albeit sheltered middle class jock boy yourself.

    Can I rest my head on your shoulder in the middle of the night on a park bench? Nobody will see, I promise.

    Since INFps are more playful with ESTps, they might not exactly "go along with it" but you'll notice them trying to weave around into some kind of situation or opinion, somewhat playfully, even if it doesn't fit what you had in mind, but it will still be good for you to see it happening. For INFjs the behavior will be more serious and rock solidly immovable and might think you're being too controlling, and they won't have much of a response to you afterward.

    Have you tried asking them? Like communication?

    He's asking us. Not necessarily the IEI or EII. So I propose asking "Have you seen the world? Would you like to?" or something along those lines.

    offer them drinks in a mischievious way. most IEIs looking for activity won't turn down someone if they're composed and relatively assertive. it's a trust thing, combined with a sense of spontaneity. EIIs seem more formal in this respect, like they would need a solid grasp of the people and context to justify certain activities. but I don't spend time with many, so whatever.

    I'm a VERY sheltered IEI, but trying like heck to pull out of that now. Not all EIIs are "unwilling" but I think they are more formal and possibly less naturally trusting of SLEs.
