I think NF's may put themselves in others' shoes more easily or often than other temperaments.

    But to respond more directly to the OP:
    You're probably right that NFs tend to be better at empathizing with different perspectives than other types. But if anything I've noticed ENFPs clinging too much to others, not the other way around! Many seem to need frequent reassurance that everyone thinks they're great and wonderful people.

    The OP just sounds really odd to me because it's the opposite of the problem I usually see with ENFPs. They're often the ones who need to be beaten off with sticks, not the ones doing the beating.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Yeah me too.

    Maybe it was a little inappropriate but I got your tone. It didn't offend me really because I have literally remarked to an ENFP friend how she has to "beat them off with a stick" (both those pursuing her romantically and non-romantically) . In reply, she quietly and modestly acknowledged it to be true and seemed flattered at the attention but she didn't appear to take any real pleasure in dealing with it.

    This is my experience of myself as well.

    You know, Esoteric, this thread has *really* touched me...

    My life will never be the same again after this...

    You're like no individual I've ever met...

    Mine eyes have now been opened to the glory that is you...

    Well, I notice a lot of people have said that ENFPs are shameless flirts when the ENFPs just say they're being friendly, so the overestimation can go both ways. Like with all contrary viewpoints, the truth is probably somewhere between what each side experiences.

    btw, did anyone else get a sense of NPD from the OP...?

    anyone know whether NPD happens to be more common amongst ENFPs than others?

    ^ Yes. NPD is most common in E__P types.
