    Hey - I'm kindof new to the whole forum thing, as well as to typologycentral.com however i just want to say a few things in reference to what an ENFP is like. Waaaaaay back at the beginning of this thread someone suggested that ENFPs are introverted extroverts. this is not necessarily true, rather we are introspective extroverts, in that we take time out to reflect on ourselves on life etc. I think it is true that one of the main reasons there is not always a lot on ENFPs is that we are constantly searching expanding and developing our knowledge of ourselves. Whilst we do have short attention spans its more to do with our love of diversity and novelty than an insult to the individual. We are definitely philosophical charming and free spirited; whilst many ENFPs can be quite different from each other, i would say that these three things hold true, added to that the fact that we are all either overtly or subconsiously searching for a universe truth, knowledge and understanding of the world. we are definitely trying to understand, find more meanings, plumb the deepest depths. some ENFPs may be more pragmatic, more anchored that others, but i think a characteristic trait of NFs is that they are idealists and up in the air, however obviously XNFPs are more so than XNFJs. Also I've noticed in a few ENFPs, not just me, that we can have extreme highs and drastic lows, to call them mood swings would almost in my opinion trivial the mental and emotional soars and slumps that move like pendulum swings. As an ENFP when I am excited or having fun I can feel on top of the world, particularly if I feel that there is a sense of significant meaning in what I am doing, but at the same time when things are going even slightly badly or really badly, automatically i sweep into a black cloud of pessissism that stays there for what can feel like an eternity. And yes, ENFPs are extremely sensitive but often do not show it, if I may be so presumptious, I would say they are the most sensitive of the NFs in that they put so much faith in friendship and people's judgements that when they are let down or treated badly it can be exceptionally painful and they will not show it because they to a certain extent however warm and genuinely caring they are, they do at times keep people at an arm's length emotionally or at least act that way, in order to save themselves from being hurt later on.

    Lol, that was quite an essay for a first post -

    btw quick question - any ENFPs who are also Enneagram Type 7s?

    wow! awesome! the only other ENFP whose enneagram I know of is a type 2, which I can relate to in many ways, but is not me as much as a type 7. However I am curious, do you ever feel like you share a lot with type 4s in the enneagram?

    I'm a 7. And I've always greatly identified with Lady X's posts. Funny.

    i do yeah... but i see the differences too. they seem a bit more intense...i like it but i feel less so and my wing is 8 and i identify with that more than i do 4.

    ErinAvery compelled me to take the enneagram, and I'm a Type 2, with a wing of 8 and 4 in a dead tie. I don't know what that means, in context to other ENFP's. Is that common?

    PS I just created a similar thread with a poll attached and merged it with Lady X's thread - so now you can vote! ^^

    I am a 7w6. Enneagram is tricky with the wings and it took me forever to figure it out. I tested strongly as 2 before Lady Jaye - and frankly it made me mad. I was going through some super emotional things at the time and feeling taken advantage of, so I think that had something to do with it. I also have tested as 4 and disliked the 'emo' label. I tested originally as 7 but it seemed so cliche and I thought it was more a coming of age thing - most 'youngins' have a "seven like" period in their lives and I wanted to be grown.

    Sooooo, basically after a lot of re-testing and reading on type, I think 7 is a safe bet.

    I wish I were more 7 w 8 and that is bossy, in your face, and more classic ENFJ (haha) like but I am 7 w 6 and the description fits me well, especially the "a lot of comedians are 7 w 6" as we soften and redirect the harsher and scarier aspects of life through humor and reframing and underplay a sentinel like vigilance to life.

    I kind of go back and forth between type 2 and 7.

    I am a 7w6 as well. Not surprising Cze Cze since you and I are psychological twins and all...
