Like he was spending too much time doing something other than being with you? I'm not quite sure.
    "Yes" (the first two questions).

    Keep in mind that the posting community only consist of 30 members, and that we're all friends IRL. So I wouldn't want others to think badly of him (and being the oldest). Given the fact that we're both moderators as well.



    What I can tell you is that yes, a lot of ENFPs do not handle criticism well. I think this, possibly, stems from a few different things. One of them being...that many ENFPs have been criticized THEIR ENTIRE LIVES for merely being themselves. Too late, too happy, too fast, too excited, too revealing, too friendly, too funny…and on and on and on.
    That's exactly what he complained to me about his mother as well. He said things like he would rather want to feel motivated by receiving compliments rather than criticisms, no matter how minor the criticism is. So I've been extra careful not to hurt his feelings.

    Though I think that's also when people start to misunderstand ENFPs as their modes of expression can be out of the social norms. My real intention is try to help them to avoid the unfavorable consequences of any actions that might seem inappropriate, whereas he consider the importance of trial-and-error and wouldn't want to be judge beforehand. But yeah, I understand your P.O.V.s too.


    I challenge anyone to challenge me here. Being born ENFP in a world…yah I’ll say it…an SJ world where there are time limits and rule and regulations and appropriate ways to behave in a social structure that goes completely against your ways of behaving…is not the easiest of fates.
    To be honest, sometimes I felt they have this strong impulsive behavior to go against any type of hierarchy or authority. And it seems to me that it has to do with their upbringings during childhood.



    When someone has a criticism of me it is probably best to just come out and say it (no sugar-coating). But if it doesn’t involve something fairly serious in nature…like I am unwittingly hurting someone else with my behavior…or am TOTALLY embarrassing myself and don’t realize it (keyword totally)…then I probably won’t be very responsive to it. It will just be like every other criticism I have received due to ENFPness.
    Through my trial-and-error, I honestly felt it's rather damaging to do it without any sugar-coating. But the biggest irony here is that, (which I'm not sure of other ENFPs in general) he does unconsciously criticize others without thinking how that might affect our emotions as well (especially INFJs, as we also can be hard on taking criticisms).

    I still remember one day we all joke about how our different our communication style are (mind you, this is done not discussed privately but in front of a small group of friends). He then mentioned I have a tendency to 'repeat' a few phrases whenever we chit-chat. We had a good laugh. But then he suddenly go into details about this habit as time-wasting and ineffective and it almost felt like I was being locked up in tiny seminar room being the subject of a professor.

    Just recently, I found out from another friend that he told her privately in PM, asking her to make constructive posts instead of easy one-liner (though he did ask her politely). Anyhow, I just felt it's such an unfair deal for him not reciprocating judgments from others.

    This might not have to do with ENFPs, and perhaps it's just him, but I do find in numerous occasions that he has a hard time to speak out his mind when it comes to pointing out others' flaws. On the contrary, he seems to be OK to confide it with a few trusted ones--which has caused him many unnecessary conflicts when people discovered it.




    Anyways, I hope other ENFPs won't take my posts as criticism against them as I'm trying to understand my ENFP friend on a deeper level.

    Okay- necro!

    Not because I think anybody cares to hear more about what enfps think haha but because I'm curious just how similar our answers might be

    So if anyone wants to pretend to need to know stuff please do!

    Literally my favorite sweet treat.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Ya know... I do. I might love it. I can't be sure because I don't often crave it but sometimes it's just lovely.

    Also thanks for playing! Haha

    See now, an NT might tend to respond with, "What flavor?"

    Amargith's response was closest to that. Maybe she's been hanging around NTs too much?
