    And the remaining ENFPs are left to carry on their former nation's legacy

What is being referenced is an overall typing of a nation's culture...which isn't necessarily an uncommon or unheard-of practice by any means.
    I'm quite familiar with the concept of typing cultures. The statement I was addressing was a statement about demographics.

    "In Ireland and New Zealand, for example, ENFP is in the majority"

    Ireland seems more IFP to me.

    Well, I can't rule out the possibility that Magic Qwan was speaking strictly of demographics in reference to NZ & Ireland (only) and 'culture' for the rest of the nations listed in that post. Perhaps it is the case that he in fact was. But Magic Q is one smart little whippet... with an ENFP father and as an ENFP himself...I imagine he knows our 'numbers' and can do the math. If taking the total population of both NZ & Ireland...for ENFPs to dominate the population in both those nations may mean there are no ENFPs living anywhere else in the world - which I'd be okay with really (although I call dibs on summering in Eire...and wintering in NZ.)

    I also have an advantage because I am fluent in Enfpese...and know which words we grab a hold of when we're 17 and going 100 miles an hour 24/7. Surely for an INFJ 'majority' always means 'numbers' and rightly so. Well, for an ENFP 'majority' can stand-in for 'influence' in a pinch. Still, I could be wrong... only MQ will be able to answer that.

    Ah, I wonder if it wasn’t biased on someone’s trip to NZ, because in that case NZ is a fun place to visit and an ENFP would have a blast. But NZ is pretty stereotypically ISTP and enneagram is probably 6w5 at a guess, and that’s what people strive to be. I mainly pointed it out though because Americans who come to live in NZ usually have some pretty major culture shock, I don’t know what kind of idea’s you guys have about us, but apparently it clashes with the reality. Probably why there is only about 20,000 Yanks over here and vice versa, so maybe not the best option for American ENFPs?

    Well you guys are 8% of the US population which would be something like 24 million, and the combined populations of both countries would be around 9 million…… it would barely make a dent.

    Really? I’d have it the other way around personally in the winter NZ is cold, windy, and very wet; while in summer its usually great weather. Ireland on the other hand is cold, windy and very wet all year round.

    If my extended family is anything to go on Si and Fe would be more accurate, the repressed group anger and bitterness of 600 years tends to beat you down a bit; though I do think that INFP is the image that tourists see of the tragically romantic Emerald Isle.

    Gee thanks Troll for stepping-in and correcting me here. You must have "intuitively" picked-up on the fact that I wanted nothing more than to be as accurate as I possibly could with those figures... And yet I just couldn't keep it all straight...you know...seeing how I was running out of fingers & toes to count on.

    Oh wow, I apologize... See the way I wrote that...leading with Ireland first and all... I thought it would be obvious that 'Ireland' was the 'base reference point'...but here I've gone and confused you! Please let me clarify...

    So when I said I'd like to 'summer in Ireland'... that's just a fancy way of saying...I'd like to be in Ireland during Ireland's summer. Then (now stay with me here because I can now see how difficult this all was to comprehend...) then when Ireland is having their winter...that's when I'd like to be in New Zealand. Or 'winter in NZ.' Yah next time I'll try to be more clear.

    Well, it appears you would know.

    @Starry apparently there is a miscommunication here, the first two where jokes:

    The one about the ENFP population was a shock/horror it’s simply too many people, she can’t take much more captain! That’s why I had the shock emoticon on the end of it.

    The second one is what I thought was a very common joke, about how the Irish are always complaining about how miserable it is over there, and the sun never shinning.

    The third was an opinion no more or less valid then anyone else’s, I was trying to use it as a conversation starter, to get you talking about your experiences in Ireland that made you think of the nation as INFP counter phobic 6; as your posts in this thread have been quite interesting.

    I think that at this point I can conclude that my online communication skills are utterly terrible to put it positively. I entered this thread to point out that NZ wasn’t some sort of ENFP haven, and that running away from ones problems to another country rarely solves them. But I feel bad turning someone’s journey to self-discovery into something else, and by the snide comment about my username and general passive aggressive tone throughout your post it’s obvious you’ve prejudged me as a noxious troll, (It was the combination of the name and MBTI type right?) rather than the shy and awkward person that I am. So I will bow out at this point and apologise to the OP for making such a hash of his thread.

    Found this little writeup in case anyone's interested in taking a look.

    They don't really provide much information about WHY those countries are better for the different personality types, but they do cite a book that you can buy on Amazon, haha.

    Getting back to the intent of the thread, I see nothing remotely ENFP about you, @Stansmith. I'm usually terrible at typing people and yet this is quite clear to me.
