    Is there a sensitivity test?

    My Se is higher than it's ever been. I know that doesn't make me on but I think I can come off as an ESFP sometimes. I read and believe that ENFP and ESFP are look a likes.
    I occasionally get that label I think when people don't know me yet and I happen to be in my silly mood, basically giggling and teasing people and jumping about. So, uh, the shallow kind of ESFP, but usually they quickly catch on that that's just something I do for fun

    My Se for the most part sucks though
    I cannot find a thing, I have no clue when my body is hungry, sleepy or whatever, I suck at coordination *especially* when I'm tired (which, I'll notice coz I'm dropping things left and right :doh), etc etc

    I do however overindulge in Se-stuff when I'm stressed, and I love dancing, playing with bodylanguage, good food, and singing. I'm just nowhere near as good at these things as an ESFP would be

Girls typically do the whole 'social outcast'-thing to punish each other, while boys tend to just battle it out.

    Likewise, it's more acceptable to society that a girl cries and is sensitive about things, whereas a guy is often told to 'man up' already. Also, ENFP men seem to be more into the whole decisive,getting things done thing, more often (although we have plenty of female ones here that also have that attitude, but still).

    Just a thought though *ponders*
    XD This would definitely be true of my culture, known for its occasionally chauvinistic ways (not unlike other Hispanic cultures). And of course this is also true of North America, so yeah, you could be onto something else. Furthermore, as a kid I was hypersensitive, so over the years my skin got thicker and thicker to the point where as an older teenager I used to say a lot of crass and hurtful things to people, so I almost had to "re-learn" or "re-channel" the empathy that I was naturally born with. Now that I'm an adult I've chilled out a lot and stuff, though occasionally I'm still called an insensitive jerk, lolo.

    Oh God, I was beginning to think I was the only ENFP who is neither conflict-avoidant nor a peacemaker! Don't get me wrong, I'm no daredevil or troublemaker, but if you confront me about something I'm not going to back down or avoid you, and if I have a problem with you, I won't hesitate to come up to you and tell you what's up. Unless, of course, you're not worth the trouble (e.g. the person who I have a problem with is but an acquaintance I see in class sometimes; they aren't enough of a problem for me to bother taking my time to go up to them and go, "Hey, you're a dick, I don't like you" XD).

    Likewise, this whole peacemaker thing... say what now? O_o I don't LIKE conflict or disturbing the peace, but if something's not sitting right with me and the peace must be disturbed, the peace WILL be disturbed, even if I'm standing on my own and no-one's backing me up (ideally someone would, of course). When my friends fight, I sometimes intervene and make the peace (like, if I am really involved), but more often than not I let them sort it out themselves because they're adults and should therefore be able to handle themselves (that, and I'm usually doing my own thing, so by the time I learn of their little catfight, they've already kissed and made up). :>

    As for being ESFP... I haven't read anything on being SF, but I identify with NF so much that I dunno I could ever be mistaken for ESFP; my NF is very strong while my E and P not so much, hence why I see myself as "eNFp". :>

    ^ It's funny...I had the same choice to make when I was younger, coz I too was badgered to be tougher and have a thicker skin...but everytime I went there, I noticed that I was closing myself up, that I would be flying blind really, not be as sensitive to people anymore with all that it entails and it scared me. Also, because I was teased a lot, I didn't wanna become like them and tease others or even accidentely hurt others. I related too much. I eventually chose to bear the pain and the accusations of being sensitive over closing of the one thing that caused both the pain but also the joy I felt when I actually found someone I connected with, as well as the one thing that seemed to someone pick up when someone needed my help or was in pain themselves

    Also, not to change the topic but I just have to get this out and ask if this is an issue for any other ENFP (or INFP; I'm kinda borderline on the whole E/I thing though I think E is stronger).

    Does anyone else feel like... "dumb" sometimes because they FEEL they understand something, rather than KNOW they do? It must be because I am new to this thing, but I keep reading all this stuff about MBTI functions (all this Ne, Fi, Se, etc. I keep seeing O_o) and I feel like I'm not getting it? I AM NOT DENSE I SWEAR. But it takes me so long to process this sort of thing because... I dunno, I have to get a "feel" of what's being said, even if in my head it's making sense? XD I'm probably just dumb.

    I'm so jealous of ENFPs who can do math. O_o I don't feel at all like I understand math, but I'm fairly good at languages, because I can easily learn how to put words together in a way that makes sense. Learning different sounds, memorizing spellings and instinctively stringing sentences together in a new language comes naturally to me, but finding "x" in a equation or putting 2 and 2 together is just... ugh. >> (well, okay, I can do basic math, but beyond that, it's all inanity as far as I'm concerned).

    idk how to explain it, honestly. But the point is, all this seemingly highly logical functions stuff makes go "what..." It doesn't help that I have a horribly short attention span so if something doesn't register the first time it'll probably take quite a while to get through period. XD It feels like everyone in the forum knows wtf the functions do and how they work and I'm that guy in the back all like HAYYYY GUYS FUNCTIONS ARE SOOO COOL AMIRITE but in my head I'm like "I have no fucking idea what this MBTI functions shit Se, Ne, Fi, Te whatever the hell do lol".


    tl;dr - potential ENFP issue = good at language, bad at math/etc.? (what I call "logical shit") :>

    I guess I am sensitive, then. Still working on a thicker skin, it seems to be a dent in my abilities.

    Hehe..nothing wrong with being sensitive, imo

    Ironically, I only got that thicker skin when I actually started to get an understanding of my own sensitivity. And I still have sensitive spots where I'm still working on being able to glance off blows. But I've found that understnading where others come from and especially understanding what the deeper reason is for your own reaction..by being curious about yourself, you can learn a lot and you can learn to gauge the situation better, which then allows you to disable strong emotional reactions that aren't accurately responding to the situation. It's not easy though, and I sometimes still struggle with it myself. But it gave me a lot more peace of mind, made me a lot less volatile compared to before, and gave me the tools to block the 'downside' of being sensitive, while keeping the benefits

    After that..you learn to wield that sensitivity..that vulnerability like a pro, like a weapon, without ever needing a thick shield again (still working on that!)

    hmmm. I guess this could be why I seemed to get less sensitive in highschool. Once I "knew what I knew" things like criticism didn't deter me as much. It still does but not as much.

    Yes. I takes me so long to handle raw data. ..except certain things. I suck with numbers but I can explain evolution. I used to have an INTP friend and we'd constantly be united on "teh worldly isssues" but she'd back her stuff up with facts where I had the feeling and just knew what I knew. It was weird to me that someone could arrive at the same conclusions with just facts. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww [/childish enfp]

    I suck at math. I was great up until calculus. I wish there was no math, only language arts and humanities. Predictably, I was great at languages and humanities.

    All of this helped me figure out I was a different kind of "smart" in highschool.

    I'm notoriously bad at getting along with people I assume are "rationals" (good at math, bad at anything that isn't quantitative) and they tend to call me "illogical". I consider emotional/social ability (more) logical.

    i like you new enfp person...haha hayy guys functions are so cool!

    that is some funny shit...but yeah i think i know what ya mean...i feel like i learn by empathy or something i have to be in it to get it...full submersion...and that's tricky to do with math.

    Flamingo, I feel ya. Over time you learn this shit though without even thinking about it. In the beginning..you just feel it. And hell, even now, MBTI is just a set of definitions to me to describe a feeling I didn't have a name for before and a way to not get lost in that maze of feelings as you delve deeper.

    I don't type a person through logic, I feel them, recognize the type of person and MBTI has taught me that such a person is likely to be an XXXX. Same with the functions. I use them to categorize behavioral patterns I've long felt before I discovered MBTI

    I do admit I *loved* discovering this stuff, as it gave me a way to categorize this stuff which helps you work more precisely, instead of getting lost in that chaos of impressions. And it allowed me to truly work out the kinks and details instead of just seeing the main flow of it. So it is worth knowing

    Don't worry..it'll come to ya too, if you stick around long enough
