    ENFJ:

    We're known for over-reacting and blowing things out of proportion. I'm quite good at keeping social drama out of my life and nipping it in the but, but it doesn't mean that I respond to it cleanly. Usually I turn into a cackling hen and gossip my mouth off to the right people to keep myself in check.

    I either brush it off, or deal with it head on. I generally don't get too worried over drama. Some of it adds excitement to your life and gives you something to talk about, but other times it's just stupid and unnecessary.

    I withdraw from it when possible.

    If it isn't possible to do this, my reaction to the dramatic person depends on the situation and who they are.

    If they are somebody I care about and have genuine concerns, I'll make an effort to help resolve the conflict and support them. In other situations I'm inclined toi just tell them to get a grip, unfortunately. I really, really don't take well to hysterical people...seeing somebody out of control is quite intimitdating and disturbing to me.

    My drama:

    During: Oh hell no. Let's fix this shit hella quick.
    After: *with buddies* Yeah, so then this happened.. it was pretty awkward.

    Other people's drama:
    @Bamboo, hey omg, look at what happened!! So crazy!
    Bamboo: ... So?
    Kantgirl: Just say "I'm feminine and I'll punch anyone who says otherwise!"
    Halla74: Think your way through the world. Feel your way through life.

    Cimarron: maybe Prpl will be your girl-bud
    prplchknz: i don't like it

    The Social aspect of me likes to hear about it. I like to know what's going on with people and between people. The more specifically so/sx aspect likes to connect with the person I'm talking to about it. It's pleasing to hear their personal perspective and to have them confide in me.

    The INFP aspect of me thinks a lot about people's intrapersonal struggles. So, for example, when there is drama like my coworker sleeping with 4 guys at our workplace, I think about how that is probably her emotional response to her boyfriend of 8 years breaking up with her recently. I know she had wanted to start a family with him for 5 years, and he kept telling her he needed more time. It seems like now she is in relationship hyperdrive.

    The 6w7 aspect of me is more complicated. If it's drama that's happening to me, I feel very stressed about it. I worry a lot about getting "trapped" in a bad situation. I can definitely overreact if I feel like I am in danger. I've gotten better about just trying to sail through, though, since recognizing my Enneagram patterns. I do think a lot about how to troubleshoot, and how to avoid this problem in the future. If it's drama in someone else's life, I try to be supportive while keeping myself out of it.
