    No, I don't think I can change anybodys opinion about anything.

    But the thread name is different thing than what you ask in OP:
    ENFP's, how much do you try to affect people's feelings?

    opinions - feelings ???
    manipulate - affect???

    But will you be comfortable doing it? Would the facade be easy to spot?

    Ok, I don't see that connection and I do see those as very different things.

    Only if it's a win-win situation for all parties, it will avoid conflict that isn't worth getting into, or there's a greated purpose to be served. And even then, I'll try to make my reaction as genuine as the situation allows, by finding a way to harmonize myself and my feelings with what I am to project because it will benefit the situation and all those involved.

    I'm totally comfortable doing it as part of my job. Nope, won't be able to spot it. I'm a charmer. I'm a performer.

    But real life is real life, and I don't drag that shit into my relationships or even into casual convos with strangers.

    I see it like this

    Feelings but specifically opinions. Affect but specifically manipulate. Either way, the question asked is "affect - feelings".

    Hm, this is difficult. Would it be comfortable for you to "fake" cry in front of a person? Would it be easy to notice that it isn't your true emotions?

    Never, in part because I suck at it. I can amplify emotions to communicate just how much something means to me when I'm not feeling it as strongly in the moment... but that isn't faking. It's communicating, bitches!

    omg could never fake cry and even in professional situations i will be professional but i won't pretend that i'm really happy with you if i'm not. i don't smile at someone i'm mad at but i will refrain from telling them to fuck off...you know as to not lose my job but i don't lay on some thick fake nice act....ewww i hate that.
