    Default ENFJ - amazing or exhausting?

    ENFJs are amazing, most certainly. But they are so insecure it's getting on my nerves easily. Like when you say "Yeah, I like it, it's no problem to me" or if you say something they don't like because they're not able to manage it. (If I say I don't want to have to care for people I can't stand.)

    sorry but I only understood the first two lines. Although the first line would suffice. Sounds like you got some bad experiences.

    Bad experiences tend to do that. ENFJs, depending on how they carry themselves, can be either amazing or exhausting.

    They're both, sometimes simultaneously.

    I like 'em in general. Don't know if I'd frame it in an "amazing or exhausting" dichotomy, but overall, I give them a thumbs up.

    Simple... amazingly exhausting.

    When ENFJ gets upset... they become loud. But you really couldn't find a better type to cheer you up when you're down.

    Gawd, people get some blood in your veins!

    Too much posting on internet forums makes one weak.
    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.

    Fe is a high powered rifle. I see you a mile away and I'm *still* going to take you out. Who cares if I have to lay there in the mud for a day or two?! Who cares if I accidentally get adopted into a roving pack of meerkats in the process?! Who cares if I can't feel my legs from a lack of exercise?! I'm accessing this bank of shrubbery like a pro! You will fall to my muddy long-distance meerkat charms and you'll never see me! Ok, you may see my bright pink shirt, but that was as good as camo when I was in Sephora's!

    I'm married to an ENFJ .. 23 years! His enthusiasm for life is amazing and exhausting, even after all these years.

    ENFJ's are generally pretty awesome individuals, who get stuff done and are enthusiastic while it's getting done! Both amazing and exhausting!

    The only beef I would have is that I can read phoney (as opposed to genuine) Fe a mile away; sometimes it's turned on pretty thick. No need to pretend you're interested for my sake. But thank you; I appreciate the effort, and know it comes from the heart!
