    ENFP logic is like the order in the beautiful chaos admist nature. Its there, but to most only a well placed river through the mountains.

    optimism is most certainly the logical choice.

    Actually organisation. In the four quantrant (NBI) test I did in engineering, I came up full on all except L2, which is organisation and detail.

    This from the personality profile rings quite true,
    "ENFPs have an unusually broad range of skills and talents. They are good at most things which interest them."

    It is one way I tend to annoy a lot of other types IRL. I normally get told I'm not using potential, rather than am incapable. They know I can do it, but getting me to do it and stay on course is another thing. From what I've read this is common for ENFP. If you know some they are probably smart but seem to take life too lightly, or the things like achievement that you value, too lightly. We are quite different from the ENTP too, once you see us side by side for a while. But we do tend to carry that trait of being quite quick and cluey when it comes to problem solving. And I'm not really scared at all by complexity. I normally get set the "too hard basket" problems at work.

    Of course we aren't good at everything though. Give me fine art, or any other highly detail oriented thing, and watch me make a mess. Ask me to remember to reference things in science, and I'll drive you insane. Organisation gets you a long way into places I can't go as easily. INTPs beat me at pure logic too, for this reason. Not because they are better thinkers. They are just willing to go ABC and write the whole thing out, rather than constantly trying to put the problem in its simplest form.

    I find as a type we often get lost in the void between ENTP, INFP and ESFP. We have a bit of each to us, but everyone measures us by detail or skills. Our strength is in the combination and interaction of these skills. We aren't really the best at any of them, but having them at our disposal removes many ceilings that other types hit.

    So true in my case anyway. If I'm not interested in the topic/subject I fail miserably.

    noigmn:
    wow...you are so good at writing the exact perfect thing. that's it exactly. that's the distinction it has to be of interest to us. it's not just a tool we have at our disposal that we can apply to anything we see fit. we genuinely have to be interested.

    and yes..it's not as important to us to be precise and write it all out so the truth is illuminated the best it possibly can be. it's just about communicating it quickly and adequately...for me, anyway.

    I got a C+ in "Intro to Engineering" freshman year. It's an easy A but I just couldn't stand to put anything into that extremely boring class. I actually thought it was hilarious that I ended up with that grade.

    Hehe, all my first year grades were dependent on interest. I remember them telling me at the start of second year, "I don't know what to make of these grades. You have one of the top marks in the hardest subject and failed two of the most simple, mundane ones. Now you want to overload to catch up, I'm not sure what will happen." .

    At their most detached, ENFPs can keep up with the best of em.

    I suddenly have the urge to hug the breath out of you.
