    I think the range is huge. I've only ever met one other INFJ guy and I doubt anyone would ever guess we were the same "type". He's more reserved than I am and can be quite dismissive about certain ideas. He has yet to develop his Fe in any meaningful way, as far as I can tell. It's likely due to his family situation, growing up.

    Maturity level and numerous external factors definitely influence the whole of a person.

    my oldest sister just told me she was enfp too and that surprised me because i see her as being way more eccentric and extroverted then me....she is much more confrontational than i am and says and does a lot of things for shock value...but we are really alike in the way we approach life and people...i think i believe we're the same type but at first didn't.
    i also wonder if her being the oldest diluted some of those qualities in me...like that place was already filled or something

    type doesn't define behavior or even motivation. MBTI is a model for something we dont quite understand... the brain and it's cognitive processes. though behavior is reflected by these cognitive processes, it isn't defined by them (the image is skewed by external variables, if we are still using the "reflection" analogy).

    ^^ yeah...that makes sense.
    i just get the impression that other enfp's are all happy and zenlike like me and she is not that way.

    I'm not thrilled with the question because MBTI types aren't supposed to characterize behaviors (they characterize thinking processes). However, if any correlation exists between type and behavior range, I'd say extroverts might display a wider range of behavior than introverts. If the processes themselves are the same, and environment the changing variable (the variable variable ), then those more in tune to their environment would be more likely to reflect that variety in their thoughts/perceptions/judgements/behavior. In addition, extroverts may be more aware of others' reactions towards them, and hence more likely to modify their behavior in response. The ever inward looking Ixxx might just spend all their time reading and thinking alone in their room whether they grew up in Hicksville or Beverly Hills.

    Moved to MBTI (tm), Enneagram, and other personality matrices
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

So it just seems that there's a difference in maturity between these two, from my perspective.
    Ah, sure. That is a good point. I think we can safely assume that most of the range inside types can be related to maturity. At least the most visible differences should have a lot to do with how much of your personality you accept.
