    Interesting. One good friend of mine is an EnFP, and we get along well - she's so adorable! But I have a sneaking suspicion if I was to be cooped up with her for too long, we'd get on each other's nerves very quickly.

    I didn't think she was an ENFP at first - she definitely didn't strike me as OMG that's ME! But now that I'm paying attention, she does deal with things and react in similar ways to me. So it's subtle, but naturally a type is going to look differently to you from the outside as opposed to 'the inside'. :P

    And I think a friend I used to know over the internet was, in retrospect, quite a strong ENFP. Possibly ENFJ. Incredibly charismatic, childlike in his joy for some things, always finding totally irrelevant things to comment about and make interesting, chatty and friendly, but still a bit shy and insecure when it came down to it.
    ANFP:
    Extraversion (52%) ---- Introversion (48%)
    Sensing (26%) ---- iNtuition (74%)
    Thinking (16%) ---- Feeling (84%)
    Judging (5%) ---- Perceiving (95%)

    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).
    My tactic is just to ignore. Then babble about nothing, generally a topic I know they are interested in, but not too interested as to know what I'm up to. This maintains until they are so swamped with random thoughts that they have to leave and reconsider something. The logic is I got to have a pointless conversation for X amount of time and they might of got something out of it, so I can rest easy that night knowing I'm not selfish.

    Pssht, I'm genetically built to handle truth, regardless of how bitter, painful or shocking it may or may not be.

    And speaking of "the truth", I am reminded of this great song:

    YouTube - The Truth by Handsome Boy Modeling School


    Are you immediately inclined to defensiveness? (defensiveness or defensive mechanisms like denial, regression, repression, etc.)
    I can be defensive, yes, but I tend to be inclined to defend any point or person I think is worthy of defense.

    Do you do before you think? Do you regularly consider the consequences of your actions?
    Sometimes I do not think before I speak, because, in conversation, thinking and speaking occur damn near simultaneously for me, (with thinking fractionally being in the lead, obviously ). So if you consider speaking an action, then the answer to your question is, at times, no. However, I rarely commit, "actions of consequence", before intense deliberation.

    Authenticity or Loyalty? Authenticity - be yourself and force the world to adapt to you. Loyalty - sacrafice your own self interests for those around you and adapt to the world.
    I value both. Though, truth be told, I find your definitions to be a bit screwy.

    I'm big into authenticity and I believe that engaging in habitual loyalty *can be* a foolish and potentially dangerous endeavor at times, therefore on second thought, authenticity wins.

    Last question: Are you one of them damn sophists?
    Lol, hell no.

    Wow, I'm only on page 18 of this thread but I had to stop and register to post. I have not met another ENFP IRL and I have to say that it is totally awesome to see so many people very similar to me and that just 'get it.'

    I always have a hard time describing myself to others. In a way I am full of contradictions, but contradictions is not the right word.

    The second skin, I totally identify with, although I strive to be myself at all times I find it very difficult because I am so intune with others that it *is* myself to be at their level while communicating to them.

    Well, back to reading, I can't tell you how excited I am!

    I don't know how to explain to her that I am still actually myself, I can just emphasize points of myself, and hide other points to fit in each different crowd.. yes I think everyone is cool in their own way, they have their good sides and bad sides, and I like to focus on their good sides. She thinks people should focus on ALL sides, all the time, whether it causes them pain or discomfort.
    Sounds like my INTP friend and my ESTP bro...they have this yearning for absolute pureness, perfection and sincerity in everything in friends...it's very idealistic in a way. I deal with people much more like you describe and this comes natural to me...I was very surprised to find that this was an issue for my ESTP bro.

    Dang, they forgot to install the brain to mouth filter on you too. My biggest pet-peve is not being able to wait on people to finish their dang slow ass longwinded responses so I have to finish it for them.
