    You can have some of mine.

    Here's another example:

    An ENFP female criticizes people for complaining about their problems. She says she is tired of people b**ching about situations they have put themselves in. These comments are triggered by a pregnant friend of ours who is complaining that her ankles hurt (who coincidentally, is also an ENFP, but a mature one). The pregnant ENFP's feelings are hurt so she leaves the room. I ask the other ENFP, "Why are you getting on her? Your life consists of complaining. Your complaining about her complaining is ironic." I list other instances where she has ranted to her heart's content. She proceeds to provide excuses for every reason why she was complaining, instead of admitting that she had no room to criticize in the first place.

    NF awareness high five?

    (It bothers me immensely that there is no high five icon.)
    Seriously! I'm jealous of the one at INTPc. We need that one. I would use it all the time.

    This is just WOW. It's pregnant women now. What's next -- attacking puppies and babies? Seriously, completely insensitive and rude. Can't imagine this being related to type - just someone who lacks empathy (are you sure this person is an ENFP) and is very immature. Also very poor interpersonal skills. An ENFP? Really?

    Hate an ENFP? Tell us why!

    That's the title of the thread. Call me old fashioned...

    Sometimes you can't win in this goddamn place. Talk generally, and you're generalizing, you're making assumptions on an entire type based on the people you know. Talk personally, and you're just bitching and ranting about people in your life purely to vent.

    As long as I don't feel like information is being withheld from me deliberately, I won't prod for it. "I don't want to talk about it now" would be enough for me because it implies I might get to hear about it later. That's enough for me.
    But what happens if I don't ever wish to discuss it with you?

    And no, not all ENFPs are like this - that has never been my experience with people on this board. I can only refer to the ones I know irl, and I know quite a few.

    The thing that's great about this site is the self awareness you are offered. I have toned myself down my degrees since seeing how people see ENTPs. Now for the ones that live in blissful ignorance, I am sure they can be accused of things that I just don't do (anymore...)

    You'd be surprised at how common this is.

    But if you say nice things, no one ever complains about the generalization...

    This is a typology site, of course there will be generalizations.

    (sorry for the multiple posts, guys...)

    oh damn really? i don't care if they don't want to talk about it. i can be private with my shit too. i don't prod my friends to tell me things. they can just say such and such happened and i don't wanna talk about it. that's enough for me...did i miss something...maybe i'm confused.

    I will, thanks. You're old-fashioned. :-P

    Also, what is the sticking tongue out smiley?

    Call me an NF but I always see room for interpretation.

    I thought this thread would have a more productive goal - in trying to isolate traits that may be more general to the type. The problem with just reflecting personal experiences is that they are countered by more personal experiences in the negative. For example, if you've come across the same problem with several ENFPS, perhaps that may be type related (at least a better case made for it) versus an N of 1.

    Unless, this is meant to be a group vent against ENFPs by folsk who have small Ns of them in real life and came on to do precisely the above, see if their personal frustrations are reflected in others' experiences with ENFPs. Perhaps I misunderstood the purpose. I apologize profusely, if I did
