    i can be shy when first meting someone i'm attracted to/interested in and sometimes in interviews with a certain type of person.

    and...hmm i don't think i notice my introversion/extroversion ever fluctuating but i'm always consistently in the middle i think. maybe i misunderstand what you mean?? i mean...sometimes i talk to others a lot and sometimes i don't... which sort of leads into the next question. i can be aloof. i'm either feeling it or i'm not. and it has nothing to do with being shy...to be totally blunt sometimes i just don't care. or am bored...not feeling the juice...it's an sx thing i think.

    Was your extraversion very apparent from an early age? I have read that a lot of ENFP's started out dreamy and seemingly introverted, before they figured out a way to bring their Ne to the masses (Robin Williams and Russell Brand for instance, both claim to have been pretty withdrawn kids). Or were you just adorable little chatterboxes since you were little?
    no i don't think anyone has ever said i seem bipolar.

    my extraversion was not apparent...and likely still isn't that much. i was a shy kid...kind of. i mean my parents said i was always happy and laughing and knew how to charm a room and would sort of turn on the cute to get my way...ughh

    but...in school i was soft spoken, had my 3 super close best friends and was shy with most everyone else until about 4th or 5th grade. i've never been super extraverted tho. i'm just ne first.
    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

The bitch called my parents and my parents are an ENFJ, and ENFP couple. I remember my ENFP dad telling her with a thick boston accent on the phone "WAAT? MY DAUGTAH CAN BE A MERMAID IF SHE GOD DAMN WANTS TOO."

    yay for enfp dads!! haha

    You're a pretty bashful ENFP

    but...in school i was soft spoken, had my 3 super close best friends and was shy with most everyone else until about 4th or 5th grade. i've never been super extraverted tho. i'm just ne first.
    I wonder how common that is? Ne-dom, but not very extraverted...maybe that will be my next question.

    Actually that's very common. Ne doms are extroverted, but about IDEAS, not people. They can be shy around people, until they find themselves with someone else who talks about ideas, at which point they cannot shut up.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    *round of applause*

    that was well said.
    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.

    This totally makes sense. WHY ARE YOU SO SMART?
