    would you consider damon salvatore (from the vampire diaries) or tony stark (iron man) an ENFP?
    if not, what would you consider them?

    What do you mean by dark? Are we rebellious? Not really I don't think. We can have our own beliefs that we stick to no matter who disagrees with us, but we don't do it as a way to rebel. We in general, do not like genuine conflict. We can be very dark with our thoughts, much like every NF. Not so if it is linked with rebellion though.

    Default enfp relationship question

    Ms. enfps,

    long term relationship -14years- with 3 children and each in full time jobs.

    i'm tired of settling in for "good enough" when i feel we could be better than best, especially now that the children are a bit older, less dependent. but my enfp wife is happy and content in this place, pleased to keep the same patterns of relating and living.

    what can i do? if energy follows intention, how do i get us to intention?

    mr. infp

    mmm is that so? i have 'rebellious' running through my veins. i analyse every rule and if it is imoral according to my belief system and not a result of a genuine need but the result of a conservative approach to things, i will stand by my principles and defend my truths and even try to convince people around me to see the truth and start a change. talk about a rebel

    I kinda feel bad. Did this poor guy, 99tinkerbells...come on here and no one answered his ENFP question?
    I will try to take a stab at it.
    If your ENFP is happy & content...good luck getting her to work towards best. OMG that wasn't helpful!

    No, no...you will just need to convince her that doing the work will be to her benefit. Share your vision of the future with her. Get her excited about whatever your ideal relationship looks like.

    Anyway...hope you are well...although I don't think you will ever see this message

    I think ENFPs are generally rebellious in that they do their best to not follow any rules they find pointless or too controlling.

    And we ENFPs can be dark. Fi is a very dramatic function, but for whatever reason type descriptions seem to focus on our light fluffy side that we take on when delighted. But when i'm feeling sad or disillusioned i can spend long dark periods trapped in my head. All of my ENFP friends do this every once in a while.

    Never saw VDs, but Iron man is NOT ENFP at all. I could see ExTP though.

    Many ENFPs have proclaimed being "dark" on the forum here, it isn't a far stretch to make that statement. It seems they've all claimed some sort of dislike for being boxed in with rules and such.. I'm probably one of the least rebellious ENFPs here and I still find myself being quite rebellious at times just for the sake of being so. I think that's just the child-like mentality that will never leave us.

    It can be hard to change my schedule. People in general get comfortable with certain things.. when I've been in the house too much, I find it hard to leave the house. When I leave the house all the time, I feel boxed in at the very same house. Schedule and rhythm make us feel more adult like and keep us on track.. breaking that up means some effort on our part, which can make people nervous.

    If it were me, I'd say "You know. I want to go do x..." talk about it for a while. Get into it verbally, and give plenty of cues that that is the road you want to head down. This helps prep ENFP with communication cues all over the place. Eventually, start making motions towards that. If she likes it and it starts sounding exciting, and real, instead of just words, she may be more apt to jump on board and dive in.
