I mean everyone talks about themselves to some extent, but with ENFJs it's a bit too much. They're fixated on themselves. First they talk about how amazingly fantastical they are, then they start going on about how lost and depressed they are.
With most other types it's a good convo about anything and everything. With ENFJs the convo is all about them. Anyone else notice this?
Can't sort my emotions out with out talking about them aloud to other people... and there are A LOT of those (emotions/thoughts) swimming around in my multi-tasking head all day. But don't worry, we feel bad about prattling on.

Why is anyone in this thread apologizing for prattling? Or taking hostages? This isn't a type thing. It's a self-absorbed person thing. Good grief.
#1 reason why I haven't participated.
Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.
