    Which function is most likely to mimic for social approval? Fe.

    Which function periodically deal with multiple perspectives? Ni

    So INFJ or ENFJ?

    Yeah. NFJs are good at speaking the language of other people.

    I have an ENFJ roomate who I thought was an ENTP for a long time (she has an ENTP brother and INTJ father.)

    She can pretty much get in anyone's shoes, though, and see what they see.

    (I can do this too, but since I'm introverted I can't mimic extroversion that well.)

    QFT.

    ENFJs and INFJs definitely speak my language better than I speak theirs.

    You could also mimic for pragmatic reasons beyond the need for social approval. ni+te seems like it would be especially adept at this. The INTJ I know does it quite well. When this occurs as a natural phonemenon other than for a goal related reason though I would have to think an ne dominant would most appear this way. At least in the context described in the op.

    "When a resolute young fellow steps up the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find that it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    What's that supposed to mean?


    (btw, I don't think 'swine' has a different plural form, like deer)

    I don't think so with ENFJ. When I'm around them I can always sense their intensity and I'm liable to break out in a cold sweat.

    The best I think would be in the delta quadra, delta ST types. That would be ESTJ and ISTJ in MBTI.
