    Us ENFPs never have fun.

    It's unlike an ENFP to turn something serious into a play ground.

    And Philosophy is a myth!
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    This is an example of an ENFP randomly turning the day into Opposite Day for funsies.

    Actually, I'm beginning to think that this is very true...

    "unhealthy" ENFPs get offended by everything, and then insist that they're being rational because they've decided that rationality is important. ENFPs can be very pleasant, and you can have fun with them, but they generally give the impression that they're rarely- if ever- truly happy. It's kind of sad that a feeling type can't be forthright about their emotions unless they decide on whatever odd merit-based system that you've earned their honesty.

    1- I read a lot that ENFP's get easily offended or take things personally. Is this true for many ENFP's? I tend not to take things that way, I kinda just let it roll off my back. Maybe well developed T, or being a guy cause this?

    2- Very true about not being truly happy. Well not happiness but satisfaction. I'm very happy with myself and what I do with my life. I have a lot to be happy about. But I never stop working to improve myself, I'm never satisfied with the status quo.

    Is this how you think INFP's are normally?

    Oh, no. I was making two statements, actually. That I tend to act a bit more like an INFP while feeling like I'm being closed in.

    You seem very confident in your presumption, or accusation. I'm not going to lie, though..there is some truth to what you said.

    When an ENFP is offended it's often by the straw that broke the camel's back. We're not just offended by the one thing, we're offended by a pattern of behaviour. One thing is easy to forgive. The same thing a hundred times is not quite as easy.

    Unfortunately, you won't often hear about the hundred other times until the back has already broken.
    Anger is also a feeling.
