    Mind you I've only known a handful and then only briefly and at social gatherings so I'm biased.
    I did not find any of those refined ENFJ women in Via Veneto. The tables looked empty, desolate. I walked down the street. A head wind, cats and dogs were pouring down like never before. Nobody in sight.
    I went to the hotel lobby to buy cigarettes. I fished a wet note from my pocket.
    The ESTJ woman behind the counter was morose, ill manned. With a repugnant, untoward gesture she gave me the cigarettes.

    Disgusted, I took the train to the airport.

    A particular specific cultural and social bundle of norms and attitudes, yeah, sure it exists.
