You guys are just good at walking a mile in someones shoes before you even know them.

    Is this true guys?
    For some reason, that's true when I'm dealing with SP's. They... are... just... so... I don't know. Pretty?

    Don't you ENFPs ever get tired of talking about yourselves?
    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.

    Awww, the EXFJ feels left out because no one wants to talk about her.

    Here you go
    Seek freedom and become captive of your desires, seek discipline and find your liberty.

    "If you go looking for something in particular, your chances of finding it are very bad, because of all the things in the world, you're only looking for one of them. If you go looking for anything at all, your chances of finding it are very good, because of all the things in the world, you're sure to find some of them."

    No I just logged on this morning and saw 10 threads about ENFPs yet again. I have plenty of opportunity to talk about myself and take advantage of it often.

    None the less, to answer your original question, you know how narcissistic and vain ENFP's can be, let them have there fun. To add to that, I am glad that you take advantage of the oppurtunities to talk about yourself, because if you didn't then I would have less enjoyable posts to read.

    i second that

    and in regards to the question, i would say she is acting like herself

    i know that when im interested in someone i get very shy and a bit quiet, otherwise i smother people... unless they are introverted in which case i give the space but smother them from a distance lol. just keep talking to her and see what develops

    Check out this thread: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...tml#post354994

    I think the consensus was that it depends on the ENFP... some are assertive and go after their prey, others get shy and hide, and others act as they normally would. Iow, not type-specific.
