    No offense, but as an ENFP and just me, life just seems harder as an INXP. I can identify sure, with a lot of the make up (or cognitive functions) of INTPs or INFPs and again, I have great friends of both types.

    But, I really value and appreciate my extraverted functioning -- the fact I draw energy from the outside world and need to be in the mix and with people. Without it, I would not be who I am. Extraversion and the need and desire to be with the world stomping on grapes with the best of them, that is a core part of who I am.

    I would not want to be an Fi or Ti dominant person, nothing personal. I just don't like how close-circuit those systems seem to me, I want to be with people and with the world, and though you can criticize Ne all you want, it at least prevents me from collapsing in on myself. Ne forces my being to pay attention to everyone and everything else around me.

    INFPs and ENFPs are very different animals. Maybe made from the same clay but molded quite differently. This is why I like my INFP friends, we're from similar schools but very different people so we mutually pique one another's interest. This is also why sometimes I can get frustrated with them because I feel I can understand how they react to things but they reach very, very different conclusions and interpretations and ultimately make different decisions from me. This is why I don't identify with having an INFP inside me.

    I think people are perhaps confusing true introversion with 'low' periods in one's life. Nothing at all wrong or judgement laden about true introversion, but just as it's stressful to force an introvert constantly in the limelight and force interaction with them at huge parties and schmoozing, it's stressful for an extravert to be forced into prolonged solitude, even even if it's 'self imposed'.

    ENFPs, when you find yourself in that slump or too long gone in hiding, you're really just hiding from yourselves and how sensitive you are to the world. It doesn't work. You're not an introvert. You might be lazy (hahaha), you might be super laid back and go with the flow, but you're not an introvert. It's not going to sustain you in the long run or give you strength the way it can for a true introvert. And even introverts need to get out of the house once in a while! :P

    Speaking of all that, I need to get my lazy, ennervated ass out of the house.

    See ya!!

    Amen... Totally second that...


    Owhh, not seeing people is like a constant drip on your forehead; you'll last for a while, but after a while it drives you completely insane

    Your reply was so cute. I love that you cared about the INFP's not having their special traits co-opted and then you thought you sounded like an ENFP. This is like something I'd say. I absolutely adore infp's. They are who I want to be around. Lately I find myself becoming more introverted, although I am still an extrovert being energized by having others around (a quiet few though). I need an infp to hang out with just so i can get shit done around my house. If I could find an infp roomate, friend, or companion my life would be all the richer for it.

    I third that. You're right. This solitude is draining the life out of me rather than giving me energy. I am wary to pursue opportunities for social engagement right now, having been squished around by more than a few over the past couple of years. It seems like no social interaction is better than negative or unhealthy interaction. Currently the only uplifting social engagement I am having is attending dance classes. I've made no friends there but at least it's a place I go where I can be moderately successful in a group experience. I can express myself through the dance which makes up for my social lacking. However, doing ballet later at home with the kitties is not providing me social stimulation and human connection I normally thrive with. No offense to the kitties. They're just not that into it.

    sorry for bumping so many threads -___-

    but the ENFP's i know have extremes, ie they can be locked up by themselves and isolate themselves for days on end.. then out of nowhere be social butterflies. although i dont doubt jung and his theories here.. i dont think people can ever be defined by letters. in this situation at least i think everyone has their own E's and I's at different times. no, im not assuming one is an X, just that in certain social situations people will either isolate themselves or thrive in conversation and interaction, depending on the people. there is no absolute.

    I think it's because a lot of ENFP's are Enneagram 6w7, and that is a very contradictory, ambiverted type.

    "Do ENFP's lock INFP's up inside," I thought this was an interesting topic about relationship until I read the content.

    Personally, I like to keep INFP males locked up in my basement.

    Well ENFP's can be very variable. They can be 7's, 4's, 2's and 6's. I think the two most common are 6w7 and 7w6.

    According to Enneagram Blogspot

    ENFPs, in particular can be difficult to type between 7s and other types, if they are indeed not 7s. (6w7s actually seems to be the most common type for ENFPs, followed by 7w6s, 9s and 9-wingers, 2w3s, and 4w3s.)
