    Sorry if this redundant information but ENFPs do in fact have a T in there. We have tertiary Te, which means that we use our logic function more when actively interacting with people. Being an NF doesn't mean you only use your intuitive feeling.


    I am incredibly logical and rational when faced with a problem that needs a solution. However when making decisions about my own life, I tend to rely on my intuition more than logic.


    I would say that ENFPs continue to be an idealist type more than a logical type because we approach life with our intuition and our feelings are supposed to be an important decision making factor. We are certainly capable of being logical people (as many of the ENFPs on this forum appear to be!), of course, some ENFPs more than others.

    Completely relate to that.


    Also I'd like to mention my brother (who I previously thought was an ENFJ) is an INFJ and is has a masters in Physics and is getting a PhD too.

    I wonder if this should just be a "do you think you are awesome" poll.

    Of course ENFP's are!

    i think i'm a good problem solver but i don't know if that's due to logic. i'm an idea person...i can see something in several different ways and explore them all until i come up with what the best solution would be. i can play devils advocate and debate something from either side if i'm not personally attached to it.... but if i am attached to it i'm not coming from a strictly logical place. i would be arguing my point from a personal perspective and can't take myself out of it to apply logic.

    so...yes and no, i guess.

    I guess if most ENFPs are awesome at logic then INTPs are just NFs with shitty social skills. But then, most of the ENFPs in here probably already figured that out..being so awesome at logic and everything.
    I don't wanna!

    i agree with your point booya and hopefully implied that in my post.

    meaning that...we can use it when necessary and may be quite good when we're not especially attached to the situation but i don't believe we can remove ourselves from it like an nt can.

    The only benefit you see from yourself is being a logical ENFP?

    Have no clue...I know I'm not awesome at it, but the last test I took showed that I have zero Te, though I am to some extent, very able to solve logical problems (as long as it's not math) and don't consider myself stupid. However, when pressured for time, or by someone else, I'm unable to be logical. I need time to think and there just cannot be anyone breathing down my neck. For instance, I can perfectly fine solve a logical exam (with the pressure that comes with it), but the moment there's a clear and detrimental deadline, or worse, someone is waiting for me and they're getting frustrated and annoyed at me, I shut down.
