    I think they have the most acute ability to influence people. It is why the good ones are practically worshiped among their circle and a ways out of it, or are considered cruelly manipulative.

    There is nothing more frustrating, depressing, and irritating than being checkmated emotionally. Fe is good at that when it needs/wants to.

    How does an ENFJ emotionally checkmate?

    Also, what would be an example of an emotional checkmate?

    Evil? I have no idea what you are talking about. I simply like to "influence" people.

    Far be it for me to be the INFJ on this, but how wouldn't an ENFJ emotionally checkmate? You're Js!

    If Fe's what you do, then you direct feeling. If Te's what I do, then I direct action. If someone's got other ideas, I direct them back to the task I've set. You do the same to an Fe tune. It's what J's do.

    Beats me.

    would you say that ENFJs are the best type at influencing people? or at least one of the best?

    Oh, don't get me started on Ne saboteurs! You guys and your freakin' in-directions! I've been thinking of starting this as a topic, something about how Ne users do that "emergent leadership" thing. It's either frustrating or it's attractive. Depends a bit on what other functions are at work as well.

    One of the most motivated.

    The ENFJ I know in particular is very charming & disarming, but he has little motivation . I told him he could be a benevolent dictator if he wanted to, but he said what's the point if being a dictator if you aren't evil. Ultimately, he seems too lazy

    I'm not sure what an ENFJ would have to go through to get really screwed up, but my friend has been though a lot & still has a big, warm, good heart.

    Sometimes, sometimes it's just so clear who is supposed to do what for whom.

    See, OA, what if you'd said something like that to an ENTJ?

    And the impression that the ENFJ is lazy? Think about it... lazy... not active in the practical, physical world... not, dare I say it, using... wait for it... Te!!!

    But with all that schmoozing your ENFJ is doing, that guy really, really isn't lazy at all. That stuff is work! That charming, disarming stuff... it's work he can't not do.

    I like his laziness, haha. I don't know too many unemployed, self-described slackers who manage to still be charming & not just seem like losers
    I suppose his charm & disarm is where all of his efforts go. But he has so much potential I could see him being some kind of jovial despot, or you know, getting a paying job.
