I started a thread over in relationships that I am now generalizing a part of to start this thread. At first I was just thinking of it in relation to INFP's, but then I realized it may very well apply to ENFP's as well.
INFP's, how nurturing do you consider yourself? We are Fi doms, and I personally think of Fi as being the most nurturing of all the functions. I know a lot of INFP's write that they don't really relate to INFP descriptions, particularly iirc the idealism, fluffy-warmness, goody-two-shoes. I don't think those are quite the right words but they are the best that is coming to me right now. I think those profiles are trying to describe Fi, and the words they pick can be overly idealistic and goody-two-shoes or whatever. I'm imagining that we span a range on this attribute, largely based upon how our Fi was viewed by others during our upbringing. Personally I consider myself pretty darn nurturing, but that's not to say that other people will necessarily notice it. Though many have and commented on it!
ENFP's, how nurturing do you consider yourselves? How would you compare that to us INFP's? Do you think that difference is largely attributable to NeFi instead of FiNe? Do you think your being extraverts allows you more expression of being nurturing or somehow makes it more publicly acceptable?
Let the nurturing begin!
Oh, if non-NFP's want to comment about NFP's that they know, feel free to.
