    I would say...

    Hold truth up high and be supportive when he does reveal something deep about himself to you. Many times it would be after a great deal of thought and may be very worrisome to how you will receive it. You will probably learn to treasure these moments as this is when you get a really good glimpse at who he is at his core.

    I am all about the beautiful soul sharing moments. It is what I do best. But tell me: how is an ENFJ most likely to hurt me? I need to keep a close watch on this heart of mine.

    I've heard a lot of people say that when they are in a relationship with an ENFJ they feel really special but that feeling can be trampled upon once they see their ENFJ interacting with others in the same way.

    The specialness you feel is now no longer a secret but something that is given to everyone. This is why you must treasure the stuff that is really hard for him to talk about because these are things that he may share with no one else.

    I thought it was the other way around. That book I keep quoting from says its the other way around.

    Well, I don't feel "Armed" in the first place, so I guess I can't really feel disarmed. Wait, what are we being disarmed of???????

    Fe declares that Fi wrong, inappropriate, misguided, selfish, etc

    Ni sees how your head/being works, and in a moment of anger either calls you or out or decides to screw with you.

    Decides that being an I is wrong, or P is wrong, or that you should be a declaratve EJ

    other ideas?

    Well, I, for one, am very guarded and don't open up to the vast majority of people. With ENFJs I tend to let the guard down, which leaves me feeling vulnerable.

    So the INFP is disarmed of their protective outer shell, the mask that Fi wears.

    The Introvert of Feeling-Type:
    They conceal their sensitiveness behind a mask, which may be childish or simple, or again conventional, remote, or it may be friendly. But behind this mask the search goes on for someone who will understand, and for a community which will embody their ideals.

    Fi wears a mask?????

    I thought Fi was so gosh darn internal that noone had any idea what it was doing until Ne gave it some external expression somehow.

    I once heard an INFJ describe INFP's as black hole teddy bears. The Fi makes them teddy bears, but since Fi is essentially invisible to outsiders, its also a black hole.

    I think of Fi as more of a presence of nothingness than a mask.

    Maybe I'm being too literal, apparently a number of INFP's keep their self to themselves, or, if you, prefer, an outer protective shell.

    I'd also say I think its more that we "don't put ourselves out there" than that we stand behind masks.

    IME, even when I try to most "put myself out there" people are still all like, "so what are you about now????"
