    I was gonna answer the OP with "ENFJs" = thicker skin. But then, it seems like certain things bother ENFJs that don't ENFPs, maybe that is a function of the difference between Fe and Fi.

    In general ENFJs can handle abrasiveness and suffer fools much more easily than ENFPs can. I think for an ENFJ it rolls of their backs more naturally. No, scratch the second part. Rather, I think ENFJs and ENFPs are each specially suited to handle a diffferent types of "bad apple" or "problem person".

    Not to mention that neither ENFPs or ENFJs have balls in most cases.


    To be honest this dilemma is actually why I am asking this. Especially since both types are fairly I will dare to say "soft from my perspective".
    So I have a problem seeing some of the subtle differences.

    Oh, I can attest that NFJ men can be far from soft. I know a lot of ENFJ men and they are caring and kind in every day dealings. But you should never mistake their kindness for weakness.

    When pushed to a limit or seeing an injustice done to someone he cares about, my ENFJ cousin flips personalities in an eye blink. I've never seen a more brutal ass whipping doled out by anyone ever.

    Well I said soft instead of weak for a reason.

    I don't understand the difference.

    Either way, my vote is with ENFJs having (or appearing to have) thicker skin.

    What's thicker skin and what would be a sign one doesn't have it?

    It's all in the definition really.

    in my opinon I would think that your personality type cannot decided who has thicker skin. It has more to do what your personal experiences have been throughout your life.
    A person who is abused in childhood is more likely to come out of that with a tougher exterior versus someone who lived a happy loving childhood.

    But then again, these circumstances mold your type as well so...
    hm
    I would think that each individual circumstance would have to be weighed before claiming all of one type or the other had a thicker skin.
    There will always be exceptions.

    by the way,
    I have pretty tough skin.

    just my 2 cents

    I guess we can define it as a resistance to criticism and rejection in this thred.

    From my experience ENFJs don't even acknowledge criticism. They will dismiss it and talk about something else. ENFP will immediately react if they don't agree with your critique and not give a fuck if they do.

    Judging from personal experience alone, I would have to say ENFPs have thicker skin. They don't have all of those wonderful visionary plans that an ENFJ has for me to refuse to cooperate with.

    hrm... maybe I'm a weird ENFJ then. I am usually very open to criticism. I think that it's imperative to accept and learn every step of the way in life, because as individuals we don't "know it all"

    Constructive criticism is healthy and I welcome it



    I don't know, I mean I am just learning about the types and I couldn't honestly say what kind of types I've bumped into, but this gives me something to think about when and if I can recognize types without being told what they are.
