    I guess it looks to me because I'm subjective and ENFJ is close enough to me, unlike ESTP for ex.

    ENFJs run the world; Oprah, Obama......

    ENFJs suffer more than ESTPs for sure, but again the reward is bigger when they know how to use it , IMO

    It really depends on the ideal circumstances for each type. Any type in the wrong circumstance will feel mostly unhappy and in the ideal circumstance happy (i.e. ideal circumstances for INTP quiet library full of books, with separate internet and video game room may be a hell for ESFJ). As far as low maintenance of your own type (not necessarily others) the following appears to be a good rule of them.

    I over E. Es need people more often and Is are more self content to be alone/need fewer people. Less work/hassle finding surplus people for own needs for I (especially w internet equivalents that seem to work better w Is than Es).

    S over N. Being in moment tends to be less painful than living in the past or future

    F over T. This one is a close one feelers feel more pain but also feel more happiness in general. Thinkers are rarely truly at peace because the truth can be so illusive where beauty not so much.

    P over J. Js are in the prison of their own judging which outweighs the many conundrums of uncertainty Ps feel. Most of life is a process rather than a conclusion so being comfortable with the process in and of itself tends to give the more a plenty chunks of happiness.

    SPs and EFs would be the most demonstrably happy when they are healthy. I don't know how that correlates to actual happiness. I think the concept is a slippery term. A deeply happy INTJ might not be all that observably chipper and so the positivity could be discounted. Also, people tend to introvert when depressed, or sometimes act more positive in an extroverted way. Quietness is often equated with unhappiness because of that.

    Simply put, there are observable stereotypes, but an actual conclusion would be too difficult and complex to measure.

    Hmm... This is a tough call... I'm an ESFJ and I'm pretty happy in general, but if someone I care about is down and out, then I'm sad too....especially if I can't cheer them up. I know some seriously happy ESFPs....but if someone criticizes their way of life they get all bummed out and need cheering up... But the ESTPs I know, nothing seems to phase them. Ever. I think I have to agree that ESTPs are pretty happy overall.

    My 2c: As much as I'd like to be the happiest camper of the bunch, I'm not. Not all ISFPs may talk about it, but..Anyone who's filtering the world through their internal feelings and values has less chances of being happy a lot. I imagine Fi is somewhat the same experience as INFP for many. Unless they're the type of ISFP who keeps chatting about Se. Then they're probably ESFP.

    The only ENFJ I know is a psychologist - but she gets down on her dumps in private and says she hates people. My impression is that they are sort of emotionally volatile.. and deeply caring too. It's a source of why they do good things,but brings them down at times too.

    I don't in a way consider a type to be a prerequisite for happiness. I've known deeply unhappy ESTPs, as well as incredibly happy INTJs. However, based on personal experience, I'd say that the happiest people I've met so far have been ENFJs - so I somewhat concur with that.
    Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.

    Happiness is transient. Depends on the emotional state of the moment. If you can find a way to stimulate what makes you happy in the moment, you have the key to creating lifelong happiness.

    Not relative to type.

    What a smart and well spoken answer. Couldn't agree more.
