    Post ISFP Dislikes ENFPs

    For some reason, my ISFP friend seems to dislike several people who we both have typed with almost complete certainty as ENF and most likely P in every case. We have confirmed this in some cases when they have taken a MBTI questionnaire and posted the results online.

    Anyways, my question is, why is this the case? Is there a type basis for this phenomenon? ISFPs and ENFPs are not complete opposites, and I have always figured that types which only share one letter (excluding N or S), or no letters would have the most conflict. I don't know enough ENFPs and ISFPs closely to construct my own theory, and I haven't found much information specific to this issue. Has anyone else noticed or experienced this firsthand, and does anyone have an idea as to why this is the case?
    I (89%) N (88%) T (88%) P (56%)

    Ti > Ne > Ni > Te > Si = Se > Fi > Fe

    In my experience SF critiques of NFs are usually things like, "Listen, it's really cool that you try so hard to treat everyone well, but chill out and enjoy the moment a little more. We can just be friends having a good time without having to overanalyze the implications of our words and actions, okay?"
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Ne dominant people are generally annoying. That may be why. They are constantly all over the place. It seems like as I'm thinking about the things that they are saying they are already 200 miles ahead of me mentally with a new idea. It's kind of annoying.

    I have a close ISFP friend, and another ISFP friend. I get along great with both of them, though there are some gaps in communication. From my view, a lot of what I say goes right over their heads. Anything abstract is just out of the question. And it's hard to have a serious and deep conversation with both of them. From their view a lot of my jokes are crazy and out there, I jump topics a lot, and I think too deeply about certain topics.

    Despite these gaps, I have crazy great times with my close ISFP friend. We're both crazy in different ways but it leads to the same result -> a lot of fun! And we have other things in common; there's a reason we're friends after all.

    I LOVE ENFPs!

    Well, until I find them in bed with my brother and/or best friend.
