    I would say no - at least for me.

    ENFPs have been called the most introverted of extraverts before, but I do not identify with INFP. I don't really get INFPs to be honest though there are similarities which can cause attraction as well as consternation.

    For me it's not an e/i difference at all, it's different cognitive functions. Big difference between being an Fi dom or an Ne dom in my opinion.

    That said, I feel more affinity with ENTPs than INFPs.

    For myself, I was a strongly expressed extravert since I was a child. Life had the opposite effect on me -- making me more guarded, more private, shyer, etc. It took me some years to push out of it and claim myself again.

    Whenever any type is not feeling confident or under stress, they can sink into their shadow type or just become more introverted.

    (As have ENTP, ENTJ, and ENFJ, at least.)

    That seems to be a matter of opinion, and I would say it's not clear. More similar to ENTP in some ways, and INFP in others.

    Wow, I have to agree with this. I'm a pretty strong E (some tests give me 100%) but I still am more cautious. My feeeeelings just can't haaandle being hurrrrt agaaaain (dont you feel so bad for me?) so I'm much more cautious about making friends. Even though I'm dying for more friends.

    I feel like I put my heart and soul into making friends. Other people can bounce back when things change but I'm all "hey we spent months and possibly years together talking about deep things, whatcha mean you are moving on??"

    opinion and human cognition are not equal.

    i am an extremely opinionated ENFP. and then you could have another ENFP that isn't nearly opinionated but they are still both ENFPs so the opinion doesn't make a difference. you could fill in the word "opinion" with any other "behavior" in that previous statement and it would still be true. you can also fill in "ENFP" with "XXXX" and it will still be true.

    and to answer the thread title... no, personally no. as an ENFP i do think a little differently from an INFP and so it would actually be a little hard to keep an "INFP locked inside myself" because it is not a natural way to think for my cognition.

Most of the ENFPs mention a particular time in their lives when they chose to be more confident. This process could be simply maturity, something that happens to us all, it could even be an explanation for extraversion in general. Have other Es had a similar experience?
    This seems to assume that INFP's are not confident.
    I know many introverts that are more confident than extraverts.
