    Gem: the one comforting thing about down times is that it so plunges me into philosophical considerations, people around me tend to swept into conversations regarding the meaning of life and surprisingly it seems I tend to captivate them and make them think about their own life. And usually our friendship tends to get deeper in the process.

    I wasn't thinking something so broad, but maybe there's a connection. I was thinking something like being overly sensitive and constantly making comparisons to ideals. It would explain low self-esteem (sensitivity + focus on what you lack) as well as the need to fix the world (reach an ideal) for which your heart aches (sensitivity).

    Hmm...I think ENFP self-esteem is pretty hypocritical. We tell ourselves we are shit but deep down we know we are awesome. It comes from wanting to wallow in self-pity even when logic dictates things aren't that grim. It's the only sensible way to justify not being hyper optimistic - being the complete opposite. Gray is a dull color for a feeler.

    The points the OP made certainly help, but honestly, I think the answer may be much simpler than that. I think ENFP's just have a natural playfulness and curiosity for things. That works in a few ways. for example, say I had something bad happen to me, I will pretty much always think up a related joke and suddenly start smiling again. I think life is just full of fun in general. A lot of topics can be interesting to me, especially ones where I can use my Ne (which is pretty much everything). I feel like I'm in a playground all the time, so how sad can I be?

    I only have a lot of energy when I'm happy. The happier I am, the more energetic I come across as. But sometimes I tend to come across as a huge ball of energy, even though I'm not happy, but in those cases I only pretend to be happy and hide away the bad things going on right then (I don't talk about my problems openly).
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    yeah...i'm not sure you're paying attention if you think enfps have self esteem issues.

    What about modesty? I keep myself in check whenever I might be getting a swelled head by thinking about my flaws. That my be feeding my negative feelings about myself, tho.

    Exactly, it's a forced exercise. You have to think about your flaws....but the natural tendency is for your head to swell.
