Yes yes yes, yes it could but then you are nto takign into account that the enfp would rather come up with 100 ways to say the same thing indirectly than saying it directly, and like Gen said about the INTPs they may at first not even realise how much they are resenting this 'bending'. The more important the other person is to the enfp the hard it is to be straight up honest about things (we may lose the other person) despite it being even more important to be honest with them.As for the ENFP thing... though I did say I'd not comment upon it... such fascinating creatures though... all those pretty colours...
The ENFP thing, can it not be communicated in with the whole "I'm flexing here"? So the communication is more "I'm flexing this once just for you but it's a one off okay?"?
Yeah, but I expect that once he tries to explain some people, having taken offence at his previous attitude, will still stubbornly refuse to understand what he is trying to say. Don't they get some blame? Couldn't they show a little more understanding? Would that not aid him in his attempts to develop (once he is actually trying to)It's a bit like my INTJ friend who gets frustrated at people for not thinking like he does and hence being "wrong" but he doesn't ever explain his thinking nor lead on to the tangents he uses and hence loses even himself. Ergo for him to develop, as you quite rightly condensed in your post, he need to see that the confusion is resulting from his own lack of ability to explain and that if he develops that he should get frustrated less.
