    I can't complain. It takes someone who appreciates everyone to appreciate me.

    Is that your only way to make friends or?

    And I am left there thinking, am I supposed to fill my name in the blanks? Or read in my name in this generic 'special friend' mail?

    Is that how ENFP's show their affection? By showering the people in their e-mail list with little sweet nothings like these?

    Like someone wrote on this forum, if everybody is special, who's special? Is that an E/I misunderstanding?

    Yes... please don't hate me!

    LOL... Ok reading the above... exactly Erina and Amargith have summed up my feelings exactly! Mr. Flak... can't take anything you say seriously with that avatar... so LOVE it though... anyway hope that helps as the gals have already said.. just cos it's everyone doesn't make you a no one... This is kind of the problems I experience with my INFJ friend.. and his need to be one of a few I find a little controlling cos he wants me to make him feel special by changing me into someone else!

    I've had good, but short experiences with Ex types...I get exhausted. I like to have a few Ex friends however, sometimes I need that, but not in a romantic relationship. I love being with a fellow In. He has a healthy level of Ex and likes to be social sometimes like I do. The best thing is he understands needing time to onesself and so do I. when we spend time with friends, it's quality time you know. We have great conversations. It would be annoying if he were the kind of person that needs to be around a lot of people most of the time. Anyway, my point is, that the whole In. Ex. opposites attract theory never made since for me. It sounds good when I read it but not in real life. I like and need more ex. people in my life, but I do not want to be in a romantic relationship with one!

    Everytime when I hear this question I say "About how big time scales we are talking about?"

    I am asking these questions here to improve my friendship with my ENFP, and am grateful to get your POV. ENFP friends are great but one, just this one is enough for me IRL. I feel I cannot achieve authenticity by scattering my energy like an extrovert.

    Knowing what cannot be changed and accepting it is also part of the growth process.

    So then, fair enough. Here's the deal - I put up with the mass mails and this ENFP puts up with my intensity and seriousness.

    OO results in, as you can see, two separate units which may exist comfortably together, but do not fully engage.

    CC (flip the second C around) results in each unit attempting to engage the other simultaneously, resulting in interference.

    CO results in a solid fit, with O being peacefully engaged by C.
    I like this, Jack. Nice imagery. Though it does seem like the extroverts are eating the introverts.

    You mean like Pacman? Waca waca waca bitchiz!
