    Default INFp, do you get jealous?

    Like if you're partner or person of interest is with others and not you, do you get jealous? And of what exactly? Like flirting? Physical contact? Emotional connection? Also, do you care if you're ignored or not?

    I'm curious to hear what INFps will say, but I'll throw in my 2cents.

    My current understanding is that INFps are not really jealous of physical contact. In that, they can be very understanding lovers. However, they have an uncanny understanding of emotional connections, and are insanely perceptive.

    If an INFp suspects you are becoming closer with another girl, let the mind games begin! They don't seem to care so much that you can get closer with someone else, Fi-devaluing, but will find ways to draw your attention, lure you back in. INFps especially like to be seen as prizes, trophies, to be pursued, very much Ni-Victim lovestyle. They seem to view it as a 'game' or 'battle' to win their lover back, taking pride in ultimately being seen as more rewarding to pursue. Yes, they can be very hurt if they are ignored.

    Generally INFps don't go out of their way to get their loved one back. They'll play cool, and be loyal to their principles, and test the person they love... see how they respond. Ultimately, if they choose someone else, then they decide he wasn't going to be loyal anyway. But, if he decides to come back and pursue the INFp, then it was all fair game, and the INFp doesn't feel like they had to manipulate anything.

    They'll play mind games to tempt their loved ones to come back. So when they do, attracting the Se-egos, the Aggressors can feel in control, knowing ultimately it was THEIR choice to come back. After all, they chose to come back... it couldn't have been under the influence of the INFp playing mind games... or could it?

    i can get jealous but not to the point where i'll do something stupid. there was this LSI that i liked and he was dating an IEE. i heard rumors about how on and off they were and how clinging she was, that made me feel better knowing that their relationship wasn't perfect. but most of the time i was like, you know if he's dating her, he must care about her and she probably cares about him too, so leave it alone. they did break up but he went to boot camp

    I do get jealous. For example.. my military boyfriend had a female co-worker who would post stuff on his facebook and they'd laugh about things together. My initial reaction would be "Who the hell is this bitch?!" but I wouldn't be jealous enough to actually tell my boyfriend about the way I feel unless its actual cheating. I always tell myself that i'm over reacting and if I know for sure he loves me, whatever they do with another girl as a joke or whatever is totally fine. Or i'll think something mean like "She's in the military with him, and ugly, and practically a man.. He couldn't be interested in her!" I'll rationalize with anything I can. Especially since I do similar things with my male friends. (I still keep it in the back of my mind as a potential threat)


    Oh and as far as porn goes, I could care less.

    Ascended beings don't get jealous.
