    The first queation might be a joke :p.
    Not sure what you define as ' normal male persuasion'

    As for the sniffing, it s an Si stored Ne pattern recognition. Iow, the stick up the ass, stern death glare puzzled demeanor when encountering us is like a beacon. Mostly coz they usually dont look at me disapprovingly, at least not till we actively prod them. And thats a huge difference from the rest of the population. They just observe and take inventory. They do the Fi homework needed toassess us correctly - if they consider us worth the study - like @chubber in fact demonstrated here. What is he doing, if not taking the time to process and research the creature that has caught his eye - with no assumptions as to her motives, just curiosity and follow through to find out. No short cuts, no half assing, no prejudice - just honest work.

    Thank you.
    As simple as this may sound it makes perfect sense.

    Edit - now go fight with your nemesis .

    Thank you. This is however an advance scenario where the enfp has taken a bit of interest or has begun the seduction process.

    Thats an assumption
    Just because she looks out for him, doesnt mean its seduction or even interest in that sense. Sure, it is likely she is a bit inteigued by him or enjoys his company, but that does not mean she is aware or consciously setting a goal to check him out in that capacity. Thats what he is doing!

    We tend to be intrigued by people for different reasons and engage people readily as extraverts. This is how an enfp sniffs out 'sparks' or potential for any type of bond with people, and its hardly advanced. In fact, id call that stage 1- aka the first stage after the initial sniff

    Ime, intjs either act oblivious to the initial sniff- which is why you wanna try a few times, properly spaced out to retrieve optimal data/feedback - or they start their own evaluation process of you, occasionally seeking you out for more data. In fact, after my initial pinging, they usually take over the show and take initiative in setting the pace for contact. All i have to to is reply and follow direction


    Thank you. This is however an advance scenario where the enfp has taken a bit of interest or has begun the seduction process.

    Dear ENFP,

    In the event of being stalked by an ENFP, how can I get away without being sniffed, tackled, or harassed, by the insanely energetic and joyful ENFPs that are within 100 miles of me.

    - An NTJ with no more will to run.

    Sniffing you cannot avoid, but ignoring us works pretty well, and if it doesn't, use the words: Thanks but im not interested, so I would appreciate some personal space. Nothing personal.'

    Most enfps will - sulkingly so - respect free will and free choice, as well as personal space

    Perfect answer.

    I have a special fondness for guys who are both socially graceful and blunt. The ones who have practiced how to play nice if they want, but also willfully disregard playing nice when they choose to. I love knowing that my partner can be a classy gentleman when the occasion merits it, but will also call it like it is when the occasion merits it.

    As for not being as attracted to "normal" guys and "normal" game... eh. I think normal guys are nice but they already get girls and they're already relatively happy. I like the undiscovered gems better. And even with the relatively normal ones, I like cracking them open and finding the unusual aspects of them. It's pleasant to revel in the freedom of weirdness, and it's pleasing to soothe someone's anxiety about their weirdness and affirm them for who they are, warts and all. There's nothing more satisfying than being able to be truly openly myself around my partner and welcoming him to be truly openly himself, too. He's gorgeous inside and out.

    I tend to find INTJs attractive, but sometimes I can feel like INTJs are too "mature" for me, if that makes sense. I am a very serious person and it is very pleasing to me if my partner has a good dose of levity. Same for ISTJs.

    I have a personal fondness for SJs but I think ENFPs on the whole probably are more attracted to INTJs.

    Nah, they win. I do feel like I can be better at using my cleverness/resourcefulness in a way that builds people up individually, though. ENTPs can be fun and inclusive but they can also be a little cruel and dismissive. I think that for ENFPs, we enjoy being witty too, but we'll generally rein it in if it's going to come at the expense of someone else feeling bad.

    In terms of decorating, I love a combination of organic, elegant, comfortable, and heartwarming.

    In terms of just generally catching my eye, anything that strikes me as cozy and ethereal.

    I wish I had the opportunity to date one. Would be all over that.
    Have dated an ENTJ- and it's my kryptonite. But the lack of empathy is draining.

    Least favourite: manipulative, slut, unreliable, flaky, cruel, do not know what they want, airhead, has nothing of import to contribute, all fluff, ditzy, intentionally leads people on, power-hungry, attention whore, intentionally take advantage of people with their charm, blow hot and cold, drama queen, not to be trusted.

    Bolded are , at least for me, true, but only the flakiness and unreliability in certain areas is something I havent figured out yet how to quantify, address, and have a good reason for. Iow, i have good reasons for being those other things and I can explain them OR it is a difference in priority between me and those who see that quality as more important or more inclusive.

    I get this impression that @Amargith is a ninja. My understanding of ninjas is that they blend in and then suddenly all hell breaks loose.
