    What made you decide you're an ENFP, and what makes you question it at times?

I don't like spending too much time with people...but I do yap about my day or other things on my mind if I feel comfortable with someone. I have to have time to myself or I get cranky and out of sorts. But when hubby needs time to himself, I often wonder if he's mad at me?? *wondering out loud* is it possible to be a mix of INFP and ENFP?
    Try not to confuse shyness & introversion. Shyness is social anxiety that may cause someone to find it difficult to speak to strangers or to new people. It involves a fear or feeling of inadequacy; it's not an energy/stimulation issue.

    Being such an expressed introvert, I tend to see "confused" people as extroverts, because introversion seems so obvious to me, especially the contrast of myself with other people. Everyone can get tired after talking awhile or annoyed with crowds, but where is the focus of your mind?

    I think, if I understand correctly, that the focus of my mind is probably outward. I need the approval of others, so I seek it out. If that makes someone an extrovert, then I know now that I am. (If I'm misunderstanding you, please let me know I'm on the wrong track!)

    I have finally settled with INFP after being everything else and sometimes I try to describe why I do seem extroverted at times. After some thinking I believe I'm extroverted only when I feel like my parents, or friend thinks I'm sad because I don't want them to worry about me. So I say I'm an Introvert that has learned to deal with people.

    Hmm, that's very interesting....and it must have been very difficult for you! It;s hard for me to seperate who i was before my mom told me she wanted me to be extroverted and popular and how much that plays into my personality...

    oh no that wasn't me saying weren't you listening! haha i was really wondering if it was you i just said this to or someone else in some other thread with the same question.

    let's get all systematic about haha...that doesn't sound like fun but i was going to suggest you tell us what parts of the profile you relate to from each...but that sounds like a lot of work.

    maybe you should read the other threads on here that talk more about it too?

    Yes, that is the track I am on. Introverts are in a way, more focused on themselves. It may seem "self-absorbed", but for INFPs, it's really introspection, which not only allows a greater understanding of self, but of humans in general.
