    Didn't notice she was about the friendliest thing on Earth?

    Friendly is the only thing that makes her an ENFJ?
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    You took the argument to functions, specifically "Where is Fe vs. Ne."

    She demonstrates what one could call first-class-expert-use-of-Fe. Where is the Ne?

    That's what I'm asking you. I gave some proof what I thought was Fi more than Fe. Most celebrities being interviewed are at least friendly so her friendliness in the interview is a given not proof of Fe.

    OK, well I disagree with your "proof." Clothing choice is Fi now? And I thought most others took functions too far. (Try and justify clothing choice with any function: it's easy. I won't bore you.)

    I didn't say her clothing choice was Fi, her reasons behind her clothing choice indicate more Fi than Fe to me. Check three minutes, 10 seconds into the video and tell me what you think.

    I watched it alreeeady, and I'm here to tell you I know what you're getting at, but I could write an essay on why that's due to Ti, or Te, or Fe, and make people believe it. It's just not my bag.

    I feel reasonably confident she's ENFJ, based mainly on comparison as usual, and that's enough for me. If she knocks on my door and says "WTF you think you're doin' sommabish, I'm ENFP!" I might reconsider.

    Anyone consider ESFP? The external fashion bit seems more sensory, but who knows. I know a number of ENFP artists and performers, and their thought processes are unmistakable. They are the masters of creative non-linear thought. Ne in a naturally creative person is one helluva ride. I haven't noticed that aspect to her, but it might be there.

    Thanks for posting that. It made me go from being 90% sure she's an ENFP to 99% sure.

    Personal Quotes
    I think everyone has gifts and everyone has talents. If you are successful at it, it feels really good but it never really penetrates completely. There are moments where I think that we made an amazing record and I'm so proud of it, but I don't wake up and go, "Wow, I'm amazing.

    It's always odd to talk about my fashion. It's something you look at-you don't need to talk about it.

    I don't know what I'm going to do, but I've always wanted to do the family thing

    At a certain point I'm going to want to have a family and I'm not going to have time to be running around the world doing this shit and being greedy. I can always write songs. But can I always wear an Alice-in-Wonderland costume? I probably shouldn't. I can at home. I was thinking that when I have children, that I should always dress as a character for them, so they think their mom is Alice in Wonderland or Cinderella. It would be totally messed up!

    As a famous person you think how you're gonna end it, get away and have a normal life. I imagine my children are going to save me from my vanity and be my passion and fill whatever fears I have of the amazing time I'm having right now being gone. I don't want to drop off and not be on the radio or not be able to talk about myself for hours. I don't want it to go away. But at the same time, I never expected to be here in the first place.

    I'm really emotional. I don't fight with people - like, I can barely fight with my husband because I'll just start crying instead. I've learnt not to do that.

    I've been making a conscious effort not to think about the future. I'm lucky to not have a real job, to be able to express myself, be creative and be relevant. I don't know what I will be doing in 10 years. How old will I be? Forty-five. I don't want to think about it to be honest, because it's a waste of time. Tomorrow night I'll be in bed with my husband again and it will be really great. It's all about right now.

    I'm like a peanut butter sandwich.

    The one thing that makes me feel super lucky about my financial success is that I have a housekeeper.

    My songs are basically my diaries. Some of my best songwriting has come out of time when I've been going through a personal nightmare.

    I really want to take some more time out and be with my husband. I guess what I really want is to have a baby. Life is short and you've got to get the most out of it.

    I'd like to stress that I only have a small role. Oh, who am I kidding? There are no small roles in a Martin Scorsese film. (Regarding her role in The Aviator (2004)).

    For me, acting comes from the same place as performing music. I just have to perform. I wanted to get it right and I did. Sometimes you just have to go for it.

    "They are my best friends, so when I told them that I wanted to try something solo they responded in the way that best friends do. It was a matter of timing. We've all been growing up and our priorities have changed. Then I went and got married and my priorities certainly changed." (regarding pursuing a solo music career away from her rock group, No Doubt)

    "This album is just about me. Although at times I think there's less of me on this than anything I've done because of all the people involved." (regarding her first solo album, Love Angel Music Baby)

    "I imagine having children will save me from my vanity and fill whatever fears I have." [on easing up on her career to consider a family, in Rolling Stone]

    "I really don't care what people say. It's not like it discourage me from doing something I want to do".

    One time, a guy said he worked for Hugh M. Hefner and gave me a card. I thought it was funny.

    I have a dream about spending time in my house with my kids. Being a mom was all I ever dreamed about. Now that it's come true it makes me feel like my life has come together. Nothing else matters.
    There's the full list of quotes on her imdb page. Pretty much the perfect model of what an Fi user talks like. Not trying to prove anything, just making a reference
