    He is a good kid, but the reason he drives me bonkers is likely the same reason two enfps don't usually get married. We are both spastic, loud, messy, talk too much and can be emotionally touchy. Living in the same house and sharing the same space means that he drives me crazy. The real challenge when parenting yourself basically is that all of his weak points are your weak points. He has no structure and I have no structure and so on. So I end having to stretch to provide double the structure, which is so exhausting. It's like herding cats if you only had one leg. hop. hop. hop. meow....

    Hmmm...I would say it was a combination of both. My feelings allowed me to trust my intuition. Really, Ni comes down to gut feeling. Not that there was no Ti involved at all, but that whimsical Fe wins out over Ti trying to break everything down. Ti and Ni bump heads and the collision is not pretty.

    But in any case, this is exactly why I agree with cascade:

    No offense but do you know any other ENFPs in real life? I can see messy, spastic even...but the rest...

    Maybe I'm just different from other ENFPs but I don't relate at all.

    I work with two. One sits down the way from me and is more neurotic than me. She gets crazy amounts of stuff done but is so sensitive that she apologizes when she can't do me favors that I request of her. I adore her but she is high strung, chipper, chatters (just like me) and needs lots of alone time and sees a shrink once a week.

    Another is a sales guy who I do dearly love but between the two of us we never shut up and our conversation weaves so randomly that it can be hard to keep things on track. His NT customers love him though.

    Another was here and again she never, ever stopped talking. She was also in counseling and was looking for a drastic career change. We had a four hour conversation one day and must have covered hundreds of topics. I adored her, however she was in our tech support group and could not handle the nastiness of the other folks there as they were constantly at each other's throat and she was so stressed she quit.

    I mean maybe these are just enfps in science though. Maybe the ones in the real world are more normal?

    I'd like an F, only because I tend to be the more passive person in T-and-F relationships. Which, when a parent, isn't exactly the best thing.

    DISCLAIMER: If I offend you, I'm 99.9% sure it's unintentional. So be sure to let me know, m'kay? (And yes, an INFP would stick this in their signature, lol.)

    If she needs a shrink that might be proof enough she is not a normal ENFP. But the rest aren't necessarily cons. I'm not saying she's crazy or anything but from what I know about myself and the other ENFPs around here I think we are generally very chill. Unless unhealthy.

    Yep nothing wrong with him.

    My reply to that is the same as the first girl.


    And not to question your typing capabilities, but, typing people is not clear cut. I never met an ENFP that I know of and more and more I think people are mistyping people they know as ENFPs all too often.

    I think there's a bit of an EF bias. People see an F and an E together and they think extroverted emoness or something. And also it seems some think T automatically grants you qualities like calmness and serenity. I don't understand this. I mean, I do. It's a crass misunderstanding of typology (and I know very little about typology) in my opinion. This is not necessarily directed at you specifically but I thought I'd put it out there.

    I am a freaking typing machine

    However it's the N that really shines on all these folks. The converstions will weave all over the place but they are about crazy shit. The crazy shit factor seems to be an N feature. I think I'll start a thread on this in the NF section however as it is an interesting discussion.

    I'd want my child to be an INTP, so I could teach them discipline and reason over emotions and weakness. Also, it would be interesting to study a little INTP compared to a big INTP. (I mean ages, sensors.)

    Uhmm...I think I'd like to have a T child, because I think they can complete me and I can complete them. They teach me to be more logical, I teach them to be more open to share their feelings.
