    Default ENFP: The ENFP bitchslap

    I wanted to highlight a particular aspect you may have noted when interacting with ENFPs of the more Te flavored variety.

    I like to call it the "Te bitchslap" although I have heard terms like Te rage employed as well.

    Te in ENFPs comes across in a variety of ways but in this particular instance the following pattern is often observed:

    1. The ENFP has allowed an Fi interaction to form or made an offering of Fi
    2. Another person does something agonizingly painful to injure that Fi-typically rejection of the core of the individual. The deeper the connection, the more painful the rejection is.
    3. The Te surfaces as a ragful attack, often blistering in its intensity. It is a defensive measure to ward off further Fi attacks.
    4. This is almost always followed by apologies, a day or so after the fact.

    In a particularly unhealthy ENFP you will typically provoke an Fe shadow between steps 2 and 3 which prevents the Te Bitchslap from occurring. They will seek to withdraw into a place of numbness. Unless you continue to provoke them. Then they will deploy the Te bitchslap.

    I once did let loose with a Te bitchslap here on a poor ENTP-sorry...

    completely relate with the train of thought and phrasing there...yep.

    Well, that's the last time I'll be sending naked pictures.

    How does this bitchslap compare to that of other types?
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    I know this wasn't your intention, but it's still cute as hell, somehow.

    That was some pretty impressive swinging of the Te-hammer HP.

    OK, plz explain! I *never* got this. The times I'm unable to control myself and do this, I feel so utterly embarassed afterwards. Most people hate my guts instantly for doing it, my SO just looks at me all endeared...unless I unleash it on him and i actually hit a nerve

    Yeah, I can see it.

    Sometimes, the very act of protecting myself against future onslaughts from someone just seems "mean", and I have the urge to give the other person yet another chance or at least apologize for my actions. And then we're back to square one again.

    So, the pattern described in steps 1-4 can be cyclical, especially in unhealthy relationships. That's probably something to watch out for.
