    Default Goofiness

    Any NF's have bouts of extreme goofiness? I'm normally more on the serious side, but I get in silly fits every so often. I find I have this in common with my INFP brother & INFP cousin. Even my ENFJ cousin has the occasional silly fits. Is this universal across all types or is it more commonly an NF (or maybe just an N) sort of thing?

    As a comparison, both my ESTP mom and ISTP boyfriend are silly by nature - but more in a goofing around sort of way. My ISFP ex would wear a wig to the bar for kicks, but was a lot more serious underneath. My goofiness (and the goofiness of the INFPs and ENFJs I know) seems to be the opposite - we're more goofy underneath, but come off as more serious.

    Hopefully, I'm making sense. haha.

    Yep, definitely goofy underneath, and serious on the surface. Not the other way around!!! :-)

    My INTP brother and I can be extremely goofy, but I don't think either of us show our goofy sides (at their extreme) to anyone else - but, I suppose that's what family is for!

    Usually my 'silliness' around others equates to me just being really happy and carefree, and rather...childlike in my openness?... and much more chatty than usual. I might even throw a jig into the mix too. :-P

    ENFJ + ENFP x close daily proximity = constant NF silly fits

    Though my sister has me beat in the slapstick/rubber face comedy department. She's goofier than me! I can only aspire.

    I'd say I come off as a complete goof, but am actually much more serious on the inside. Not totally serious, not like a brick wall, but more like I take life and things very seriously, but I'm also not afraid to laugh to myself and make a humourous observation/think about something a bit odd to myself.

    I think NF's are probably pretty goofy in general, especially ENFP's.

    I pride myself on my silliness.

    My INTP is way goofier than I am. I'd be a Marshwiggle without him.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I know many types who are prone to the sillies. I think everyone is. But it's especially pleasing when an INFP, INTP or INTJ have an attack of silliness, become slap-happy, or start to resemble Jell-O in their bodily movements. Basically, all INs probably. Actually, I'm biased, because my closest friends are INs. It's just so hilarious to see INs get silly; it's contradictive to how they normally appear, so it has that satisfying bit of irony. (My INFP friend - gawd. ) I wonder if /I/ act that silly when I get slap-happy? LOL.

    My goofiness usually expresses itself in writing but occasionally the little ham comes outside to play ... people are always shocked (I kind of like throwing people off balance like that - I should do it more often).

    I remember one time when I worked for a mutual funds distributor (do I hear any NF-groaning?) ... I spontaneouly did bad ballet leaps across the office to my favorite Nutcracker waltz. My ISTJ boss talked about it for months afterward.
