    enfps are great fun. i think i saw this said in another thread here or on intpc but you can give an enfp any kind of input and they will make it fun or funny.

    i could go on, but the basic principle here is everyone should have an enfp friend

    The ENFPs I know are incredibly fun, socially warm people who always try to get along with everyone, but they are definitely fragile in some ways albeit try their hardest to hide it. I find I can bounce thoughts off their mind like a game of ping-pong without having to watch what I say much, and if I bring up a touchy topic I always qualify my intentions as honest and sincere, and they never have any trouble accepting that.

    The couple ENFPs I have in mind (one male, one female) I try to maintain a position of "true friend" to them, someone they can babble on about anything (personal or not) while assuming my trustworthiness (which I keep) and they both seem content with that.

    Another ENFP I know, who I work with, maintains his professional distance from me but frequently the barriers drop and he exposes his silly side.

    I'd say if I could pick someone to go on a pleasure-seeking road trip with, it'd be an ENFP. (I went on a short road trip ~4hr each way with the male ENFP friend; he, my INTJ roommate and I drove out to Pittsburgh one time and while my roommate was the least silly and most quiet of us, the ENFP and I were joking to the point that I could hardly breathe for 5 minutes straight)

    Like Wolf said, I've also noticed that they are like introverted extraverts. They are awesome, but harder to find.

    well that was actually what I thought would happen to be honest. We could set the record straight... Although you must realize that we can be sensitive at times so if you could take that into consideration when "grilling" that would be much appreciated! lol

    That's probably the most difficult thing about the ENFP. I don't know when I'm hurting them because they hide it so well. It's also really weird that they don't seem to be offended by your holding any point of view, but it's kinda neat at the same time, because you'll very seldom end up in an argument... The question is how to tell when to back down so they don't feel trampled upon; I can see that you might need to ask them what they think about something rather than asserting your thoughts first.

    Regardless...

    My dear friend of . . . almost ten years (wow! I'm feeling a little old here-- my now almost eleven year old son was still nursing when my friend pounced into my life) is an ENFP.

    She keeps being too busy with real life to play with me here. :sad:

    No questions at this time, just lots of
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    OK here is the question for any ENFPs who would care to answer....


    Let's say there were some tasks that you REALLY did not want/like to do. What "tactics" might you employ to get out of doing them given 'outright refusal' was not an option? If you have time could you also please explain the process of reasoning that would go into your answer(s).

    Assuming these are things assigned to me by other people:

    - postpone doing the task (or hint at the fact that you may have to)
    You have to ease your way out of it...make yourself seem difficult. Hopefully there will be someone else better or more available-seeming for the job that could take over for you..
    This includes hiding when they come looking for you, not showing up and making excuses when they set times to talk to you, shying away from topics, etc.

    - make other lame excuses
    If they refuse to accept them then they'll seem inconsiderate...

    - fake a breakdown (either emotional or physical - whichever is most convenient)
    People never see me this way. They'll inevitably feel bad for me..

    - explain why you sincerely cannot do it
    Most reasonable people should understand my reasonable reason as to why I wouldn't want to do whatever it is...

    - slowly shut off more and more of you to them until they get the picture
    Note: this is the last resort
    I am one to respond to people as much as possible. Showing that I am no longer willing to communicate with them serves a double purpose.
