    There is an exception to the rule. That is pursuing one will work if you know how to play your cards really really well. Even then, don't keep your hopes up. Try, but never with your hopes up.
    Hmm, I don't think this really applies to me. I do tend up being the pursuer but I remember wishing in the past that I didn't have to.

    Why, specifically, do you say you'll get your heart broken if you pursue an ENFP?

    Because if a enfp likes u she'll let it know (not in obvious words). And if you are falling for one before she has started pursuing u that means you are pursuing a girl who isn't interested.

    I am being a bit negative here though. If your timing is good, choose your words wisely you'll be able to charm any girl including an enfp. (Charm not date.)

    i think that thing is something that a lot of other types have a hard time understanding. it's something that's caused problems in relationships for me as well. but it's our way of figuring out how we feel about something. to explore multiple sides. that can look like "i really love the X, Y, Z about this, this thing is great!" then "oh but A, B, C kinda sucks, this thing isn't so great." we almost have to put ourselves fully on each side in order to test it out. really the truth probably lies somewhere in the middle. the thing has positive and negative aspects and no GOOD or BAD can really be assigned. ...if that makes sense.
    The biggest issue you guys have with this is when you get stuck in a side. Sit in the "bad" way to long. As my gf enfp once said...it's my crap and I love it. Yeah...have fun with that...hey look your crap is available...it's right over there....have fun. She never went suprisingly...lol

    Hmm. For some reason I tend to attract ENFP's. I think it has something to do with the fact I have never taken them/their interest seriously at first. It always comes off as over the top or infatuation.

    (I do not mean this as an insult or a negative). Their effusiveness is met with shrugs and "why not?" or "This is fun. Let's play" And then it snowballs in a natural way. So maybe that is the key. Don't take them too seriously, at first. Lol

    All I can say is that my younger brother is an ISTP. The only thing that bothers me is when his temper explodes (and he has a strong temper) and he starts criticizing everyone and bossing them around, just over some little thing (like if they win in a video game against him).
    But other than that he is a very nice person. He's strong, quiet, mostly easygoing, and is fun to hang out with. Honestly, if we weren't siblings, and if he didn't get so angry and act like everyone was stupid, then I think it would work very well.
    But I mostly recommend ISTPs for ENFPs' friends rather than for romantic relationships. My ISTP brother is kinda casual and he doesn't do deep conversations; and ENFPs prefer deeper conversations.
    He prefers to talk about cars and Minecraft (not that I don't like Minecraft).
    ISTPs are hardworking, fun, and honest people, but I just think that I'd rather have them as siblings or friends.
    But overall, it depends on the person. If you can make it work, then good for you.
    But what I do really like about them is that they're very open to whatever you feel like doing. That's always nice, because it means that I feel like my ideas and I are accepted.
    They make awesome brothers.

Or sometimes I really enjoy the drunk ISTP. which is bizarre to say, because they're known for getting a little too cocky drunk. But I see this side in them sober, when they're comfortable. It's not egotistical it's true emotion. I also like just looking at their facial expressions, which creeped out the guy I was seeing. idgaf. I ended things with him because we weren't on the same page intellectually. I'm no genius, but I'm quick when it comes to some things. But I know plenty of ISTPs who are more intellectually advanced than me.
    Ha. When my ENFP and I started dating, he would *stare* into my eyes in a strange pronounced way. Haha. It was...it was like he wanted to lock in with me. Kinda weird and I could see how it would weird ppl out.

    My ENFP thinks he is smarter than me. Which is funny to me. It's a one sided competition. I never need to prove myself that way. Plus, I enjoy putting him in his place when he leasts expects it.

    You mentioned drunk ISTP's - our filter is lessened and we say more things than we normally would. It is surprising how many laughs I get from him. Then he takes my jokes and gets more laughs with them than I do.

    Yeah, same here with staring, for me its just the situation or timing is makes it strange. I am a touch person anyway, so that seems more natural to me.

    She has already given into me being smarter. Maye the male istp/female enfp dynamics where 8Ts typical for man to be think he is smart with you and feel lesser if he is not.It's funny because she will make comment on baby getting her curiosity and my brains to people that know her and not me. They immediately jump in and say, you are really smart and she has to comment, nothing compared to him.

    I become alot more social, talkative, and flirty when drunk. Filter goes away

    I suck at keeping this up to date. Here is are parts of a song list she has been making describing how she feels and what she thinks of me. Over 100 songs long, so here is the start about 2-3 years ago up until recently.
