Hmnn... that's not normal? I'm surprised actually.
Maybe I have bad luck with ENFPs?
My last day at my old company I went around saying bye to everyone, hugging etc., which is pretty darn normal for me. There was this one lady that was just, the most miserable person I've ever known.
I am STUPIDLY SOOOOO forgiving, and it was my last day, and I had tried SO hard to be friendly to her that - I went in for the "hug goodbye".
BIG MISTAKE. Huge. She cringed away with this look of disgust on her face. It hurt my feelings pretty badly, and it still does even now a little. It's one thing to not like hugging (personal space issues) - its another to react the way she did.
I still don't know what type she was, and couldn't BEGIN to type her due to just how mean she was (hard to see past that). I look back now and feel sorry for her, as I really think she must have a sad and filled with hatred type of existence.
Also, I only know one other ENFP IRL, but I personally do not "stir the pot", and since I hurt someones feelings when I was young, I do not say anything about anyone I wouldn't say to their face.
OMG I'm super at run-on sentences when I just start typing to get something on "paper" quickly. I'm not a ditz, I swear.

...Do I hate an ENFP? Yes.
Simple, transferring of my inner critic unto them.
It's like I have all the patience, empathy and understanding in the world for everybody else, but the second I see a healthy ENFP, I want to rip him/her apart.
I transfer all my own self-criticisms into the ENFP.
"Oh so you're an Extrovert... cute, you're too loud, shut up."
"Oh so you're imaginative and creative and funny... well I think you're stupid, boring and cliche"
"Oh so you're all about morals and ethics and feelings.. Well, morality is for idiots and your feelings make you inefficient."
Worst thing is when the other ENFP is charming his/her audience, as always oh-so-careful of the atmosphere and being fun. I feel I can read them like a book because if I wasn't in the middle of my "ENFP-fakeness" episode, I would be charming people in nearly the same way.
Unconditional love and understanding for everybody else. Absolute, unforgiving harshness for those who I perceive to be too much like me.
Had an ENFP teacher once. My friends ended up noticing how I literally changed personality whenever I entered that classroom. It's as if I embodied all the reverse functions, in other words.. ended up acting like an ISTJ on amphetamines.
[And if this symptom is universal to our type, yes fellow ENFPs it's just like you assumed .. I'm just being an attention-whore.
To the other types: See? You're an ENFP when you think patients with clinical paranoid disorder are total n00bs.]
I'm kidding! We're awesome. [Yes we are.]
And if you don't think so... talk to us. [We'll adapt to you down to every detail.]
We'll make you love us. [Who said you had a choice in the matter? ]
The only person I hate is an INTJ, and it's not due to his personality type. It's due to a machiavellian attitude.
I've never met an ENFP in real-life -- or none that I know of -- so I couldn't say what I think of them. That said, I try to take people on a one-by-one basis. I know one ENFJ, and she's pretty good at sensing when I need to be left alone, which I appreciate.
The ENFPs I've encountered here have all seemed pretty cool.
As long as you don't interrupt me when I'm talking, or hound me when I need some time alone, you're good in my book.
I do get annoyed when trying to discuss any real deep issues with ENFPs. Either it seems they can only grasp it at a shallow level, or continously change the topic so it cannot be discussed in much depth at all. Yeah I know it's because of Ne, but it still annoys my Ni!
