    Ah yes, I feel truly at home. So many of the things I am reading here apply to me...

    I do this one a lot and I used to kind of beat myself up over it. I would realize I had adapted myself to someone, borderline mimicking them over the course of getting to know them. I would think... "am I truly being myself around this person?" and I was afraid I was being fake. Eventually I got over it though and realized that *is* who I am. It is a good feeling.

Wishing you could learn to "unhook" your attention from other people.
    Yes!

    I am just learning about MBTI or Keirsey or whatever so I'm not sure if what I'm describing is stricly ENFP but I will throw one out there....

    When someone tries to compliment you by saying that you are very persuasive but instead of taking it as a compliment, you worry that the other person felt coerced and you almost want to talk them out of whatever it was that you talked them into in the first place.

    don't worry! that is definitely something an ENFP would do. it'll drive you mad but it's just the way we are.

    and it really goes back to the whole self-improvement process that is ALWAYS running. "Now what can I do to be better." "How can I be more effective." and so on and so forth. it's practical side (Ne and Te) working together.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    How does the Ne + Te come out to be this constant urge toward self-improvement?
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    When you can talk to anybody about anything at anytime.... This includes inanimate objects.

    When you have people you've just met tell you what a special person you are... within five minutes of you meeting them.

    When you give silly little pet names to all manner of things in your everyday life.

    When you park your car in the driveway but forget to turn it off and it's parked but on for the whole night and you are woken up the next day by a knock on your door that turns out to be the landlord asking if you meant to leave the car on all night and you don't think you'll ever be able to explain, so you opt instead to gather your dignity and say, with ringing confidence, "YES!"

    Not like I'd know or anything. :rolleyes2:

    That's so foreign to me. Smells like Fe even.
