    That's a really good point about gender roles, I hadn't thought much about the effect of gender roles and MBTI. I've read ENFJ males are only 1% of population. I wonder what the effect of that low number is?

    which is your strongest letter, N, F or J?

    I never met an ENFJ before, what are you people like?

    NF: Extraverted feeling is what supposedly my type is characterized by; however, I don't know how to determine if it is my primary way of viewing the world.

    We're pretty awesome.

    What general criticisms of ENTPs, from your personal dealings with them, can you offer from a uniquely ENFJ perspective?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I had a fling with an ENTP. I really liked her! I don't know anything negative to say about her. She wanted a relationship and I wasn't ready.

    doesn't the MBTI test tells you which is strongest, N F or J?

    and which type are you most similar to?


    Sorry for the excessive questioning, I am very curious about ENFJ, a type which I almost have no understanding of.

    It says Extroverted Feeling, which means F.

    I'm most similar to ESFJ, which also has Extroverted Feeling as their primary variable.

    Keep questioning, I don't mind.

    So your F is more dominant than your J?
    what is your F score on the mbti test?

    I thought you guys are most similar to INFJs and ENFPs, and are kind of a mix between these two.

    Alright, question for ENFJs.

    Do you think that one of the problems in identifying ENFJs in the wild is because Fe can focus in so many different directions? I've often thought that Fe is like water and can be flavored with anything. Like a powdered drink mix that is distinctly one taste that everyone can agree it is. This is cherry flavored and this is grape.

    I don't feel like a particularly romantic or lovey dovey type of Fe dominant full of poetry with a sunny face to the world. Nor do feel very motherish or like I need to look after people to make sure they're OK or take care of their feelings that much.

    I feel like my Fe is more politically and socially focused. Not politics in the sense that I'm following governmental politics because honestly I don't know WTF is going on. Or social in that I'm organizing parties for friends to get together. Social in terms of social justice or social movements and political in the sense that I want to understand how we organize ourselves together, what forces are at work, how we decided what is beneficial/pernicious to the Group, and how to navigate through oceans of humanity.

    Maybe part of the problem with finding ENFJs is because people are looking for the benevolent mother/father figure which seems to be the most prominent stereotype of ENFJs (and ESFJs) and miss the other flavors because of this.

    Which flavor of ENFJ do you think you are? Do you identify with the mother/father figure type of ENFJ or something else?
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.
