    Default enfp's fact or fiction

    As I search these forums I realize the least posted about MBTI type is actually the enfp. It was rather shocking to me as I am an enfp, and I think we may be actually the least known of all the types.

    Anyway I wanted to add a place in here for members to learn a little about this long lost type and decided that enfp's could help you all understand us better.

    Ok, one thing I always read about ENFP's is the "grass is always greener on the other side", how does it feel to you to constantly be considered the cheating type? also I realise that you are not like that, but was there a point in your life before you fell in love with your husband that you did find yourself stuck in the "grass is always greener on the other side" mindset? and how did it feel to you?

    EDIT: none of this is meant to cause offence, I just wished to hear it from an enfp perspective

    I think both my elder and younger sisters are ENFPs, the older maybe INFP but with low I.
    They both tend to take things very personally, so sometimes I have to really choose my words very carefully not to offend them. Especially with the young one who is in a sensitive age, because my elder sister I consider her to be adult enough not to get offended so easily. Really, sometimes talking with them is like walking around a minefield
    Besides that, they are both very sweet girls, both very sincere and direct and well-liked. But then, maybe I am typing them wrong. I am not very good in typing other people (or even my own self)

    I've ranted about this more than a few times because I think it's BS. I don't think ENFPs are more likely to cheat. I think that when they are young and immature, ENFPs are more likely to drop one relationship for something else, but that's not the same as cheating. If cheating goes against the principles of the ENFP (and I think it's against the principles of most people), they will not do it. This behavior is not an issue with a mature ENFP.

    I think there are other types that have a greater tendency to cheat, they just have fewer opportunities.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Still, NPs all suffer to some degree with the "grass is greener" syndrome -- the ability to imagine possibilities, coupled with the dislike for closure, can be a real kicker sometimes.

    F just tends to flit more than T, and E tends to get immersed more in the outer world of possibility than I (who sits at home and gets lost in the individual world more often)... which is why ENFP tends to be considered more of the wanderers.

    But this is not the same as cheating, and mature ENFPs (with highly developed Fi) can have very strong moral values that impose some restraint. I would guess that those who focus more on Fi and less on Ne have it easier, those with a very strong Ne might flit more.

    ENFPs are super attractive, uplifting, and so-forth. I like ENFPs, they're great.

    The thing is that they aren't really like the people mentioned above, I think they're thinking of the ESFP, because ENFPs are like introverted extroverts. Every single one I've known had a distinct ability to be rather alone without notable negative effects, though they often yearned for more, they could also be content in this state much easier (and longer) than any other extrovert I've come in contact with. They're also the only non-NT extrovert that seem to enjoy being social online, but I have yet to understand why this is.

    I'd say they're the most alluring NF with the least need to make an effort to be. ENFJs are often difficult, INFPs are kinda spacey, and INFJs tend to take forever to warm up to people (yet I really like them and they like me).

    I have to say that I am enjoying reading what members think about enfp's.

    I must admit that I have thought long and hard about the 'grass' on the other side of the fence, and while my curiosity has been peaked on many occasions I am not one who personally is really interested in actually checking it out. For now the fantasy of my mind is enough to keep me happy.

    I am ENFP, and you got to take into focus that some things we just don't want to change beacuse of morals and other factors.
    For an example, I work for 12 days per month and i'm off for 16 days in a row. Ship electrician. Those 16 days I spend doing wild shit, partying all over the country and outside of it at various places. I have paid trips so it doesn't really matter where I am, the thing that matters is that i'm back after 16 days in not to roughed up shape. My kind of ENFP is the adventurer. But I really appreciate emotional stability. More than adventuring. ENFP isn't just one person and a lot of factors, each of us is different... I know a few ENFP's that i'd like to kill because they are so fucking unstable XD no not really kill... But you know... Some of them reeeeally irritates me.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
