    This isn't just about ENFPs being scattered ENFPs. This is also about INTJs being less than trusting by their own right.

    ENFPs are also good at geeky things, I know. That's kind of why we'd be prone to like ENFPs, I think.
    Be careful not to mistake the external silly switch and tert Te emo for an inability to commit. We can look exceptionally fickle/silly/unpredictable on the surface, but as we grow into our Te it gives us a sense of strength and commitment. Combined with Fi-a sense of idealism.

    You may see drama, but what you are building is a more resilient enfp I think. I dunno, never dated an INTJ myself, but had quite a few as friends.

    Are ENFPs silly?

    Hell yes!

    Do we have a silly switch, yessir

    But, my silliness has very little to do with my Fi as it does with my Ne!

    My Fi is actually quite serious.

    It can be switched on, I guess, but it would be more like a beauty-switch, or a compassion-switch, or a I'm-fucking-appalled switch.


    Does this make sense to you guys?

    Default Okay, but I have a question

    I'm an INTJ male who began interacting online with and now have gone out with a wonderful ENFP. She's wicked smart, funny, and completely animated. Just a week ago she was sending me poems and sexually suggestive paintings, but in the last few days it's seemed she was pulling away. She invited me to the museum with her yesterday, and we had a wonderful time, but her texts today have been almost terse and have included none of the playfulness they did even a few days ago. I really like this woman, but I don't know what to do.

    She might just be busy or distracted or she could be immature, bored, or disinterested. Don't text or call her anymore, let her call you...if she remembers.

    But more than that, your average ENFP is going to be a "soul searcher" from a very young age, she will ask herself who she is, and constantly find herself and attempt to truly understand herself.

    Self-awareness is something that Fi forces upon yourself, so even though we are experimental stimulus whores, within the whirl of excitement there is the Fi center/core/anchor/Self constantly there keeping us in check.

    You can always tell the difference between a young ENFP and ENTP in that the former revels in their geekiness, while the latter doesn't particularly like the stigma associated with it (still desires Fe-ish popularity). To keep this in line with the thread, the young INTJ has much too important things to be doing than to quibble about such social status classifications.

    Something's up.

    I pull away when I lose interest, because I'm avoidant about hurting or rejecting someone. :/

    Only recently, I'm 27 btw, have I gotten the proverbial balls to flat-out tell a guy why I'm no longer interested.

    Also, when I'm not *exclusively* seeing someone, I usually find myself involved with, to varying degrees, different guys.

    When I like you, you will know, I will be effusive and enthusiatic towards you, highly receptive and responsive to you, and pretty damn bold!!!

    Granted, shit comes up.

    If I really like a guy and I feel like too many barriers are in the way of our being together, or if I keep trying to make things work, to no avail, I will eventually abort the mission.

    Sometimes, I really like a guy but deep down I know it would never work and that we wouldn't be right for each other.

    Long story short, if an ENFP likes you in a serious romantic sense, you should know by all the attention she'll explicitly give you and (-style give you, yeah we obsess over those we crush on).

    I share my poetry with friends and potential mates, and we're provocotive by nature, so I guess we can mislead guys into thinking we like them more than just in a platonic sense.

    Ummmmmm....

    As an ENFP we don't give a flying fuckasaurus about social status, popularity, and what people (we don't give a shit about) think of us.

    We are fiercely independent spirits.

    We will stand alone in a crowd, and stand alone in our beliefs, we don't need trivial social approval.

    Default SillySapien, then...

    Hmm. Obviously not the answer I was hoping for. She's 48, a very successful professional woman and, through the first three times we went out, it seemed extremely into me. Would she change her mind just in the last few days? And, being a relatively clueless INTJ, why would she have invited me to the museum yesterday if she was losing interest? Am I just grasping at straws?

    You seem unusually tentative for a mature INTJ. You're not in cougar territory, are you?
