    It seems to me that many of these criticisms apply to INFPs, too. That makes sense, since we are Fi-Ne, while ENFJs are Fe-Ni. So what ENFJs show the world, we process inside.

    Anyway, I have some possible pointers, based largely on my experience with ENFJs. So don't be surprised if these have to do specifically with dealing with IxFPs:

    - Don't write people off right away based on surface-level things, like appearance, or sociability. You never know who's going to be there for you when you're down.

    - Those who aren't capable of showing emotion publicly aren't necessarily cold-hearted or selfish. (e.g. ISFPs, INFPs)

    - Sometimes those who don't seem to need help are the ones who need it the most.

    - A rejection has nothing to do with your value as a person, or even the value of your offer.

    That's all I can think of right away. I hope I helped.

    This just reminded me of an interesting question lurking in my brain:
    MBTI type w/ Enneagram type-
    The difference btwn an ENFJ 2 and an ENFJ 3.
    My guess is that the ENFJ 2 would be less likely to right ppl off based on superficial stuff, more likely to look deeper into the individual.
    That's my theory.

    God how good advice the ENFJ got now. If I were a jealous person I'd be jealous of them.

    They're on their way to the world domination, but this thread hasn't helped the ENTJ one bit!

    When dealing with your opposite aka me

    Don't bother blowing up emotionally, it won't make us open up

    If you do want to make an ISTP listen to you, you need to speak softly, you guys are so loud and expressive in your tone which makes us nervous

    Push play.

    And didn't somebody say to speak softly and carry a big stick?
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    LOL, sure thing! Why don't we just eliminate it from the MBTI altogether? I think that would make life easier on all of us. Including us ENFJs.
