    There you are, Evan, and what I was thinking also. I suspect when folks are celebrating the personal guardian of "Think First" takes a holiday as well. That's why we get some posters coming back the second day and saying things like, "I was only kidding." or "I was distracted just then."

    Perhaps that's a reason, as well, for the apparent fluctuations in style that some have here.

    Two other thoughts. The comment about "evoking" feelings in others. My thought on this is that a person deliberately attempting to disrupt my flow of thought or affect my mood state is a nuisance, indeed. And only that.

    That's the second thought - the comment about an ENFP deliberately attempting to irritate and how strongly unpleasant it feels when that happens. I wonder if it isn't because of the need for "connection" that NFPs need than makes it especially a personal shirtsleeve tug at another.

    All said I think most healthy ENFPs thrive on being liked and accepted by people and wisely avoid purposeful attempts to irritate others.

    It's happened to me a few times in the past, but I've learned to be more careful.

    I generally do censor myself in a way but it depends on the person I guess. There are some people I know that I don't like offending or rocking the boat and others I don't really care and will say what I have to say. When meeting new people or starting a new class in school I censor myself until I'm comfortable with the people I'm around and then I never shut up.

    I used to be really paranoid about offending people but I've calmed down a lot in that department in the recent years.

    So, the concensus seems to be that ENFPs can easily offend people?

    If so, I am wondering why that may be. Certainly many of the other types speak before thinking. What might the difference be?

    I can't speak for everyone, but I know that my filter doesn't work half the time, and if a thought pops into my head and I feel that it is so amazing and needs to be shared I'll blurt it out with out thinking.

    That sounds exactly like me and my filter! There is no stopping the thought!!

    I used to do it constantly, I'm a bit more normalized now.

    I think the point is more that we care about the offenses we make... or have potentially made...
