This is hardly the same. To untangle the mess that is Ne, you need a sounding board, you need to feel like someone can give you a baseline so you can sort out the emotions going through you. To then be told that *that* is the wrong way of going about it, messes things up even more and causes even more pain...coz that means that you're condemned to that turmoil as the rest has made it clear that your own escape is not acceptable....and that's something that festers, and that acts as a ticking timebomb.
We are. ENFPs need a sounding board, someone who will understand that their rambling is a draft and that helps them untangle the mess in their head. Their head is literally too small at that point to really organize stuff, and it is greatly appreciated that you would help them with that.
As to the topic, I will say that it would be wise for an ENFP to have a friend they can do this with, a friedn who understands. Experience has taught me not to do this in a group. Too many people are incapable, unwilling, unqualified and basically uncomfortable with dealing with *that* much intensity. And make no mistake, we are a frigging emo-bomb going off and not everyone knows how to deal with that. Which is natural. We cannot expect others to take care of us like that, just becoz it's something we naturally do with others. That's ludicrous. And to expect a group to do so is...well, setting yourself up for disaster.
I've found NTJs to be ok with listening, even INTPs are not bad at it, when they know you well enough, and if you truly need to unload, get another NFP, INFPs being the best at this (we tend to be too easily distracted ourselves, I think). NFJs are great, but often have a different method for destressing people than what we need, so it depends on whether or not it works for you. Vent to them and once you're passed the emotions, go and ask for advice from T's as they will be more than willing to help you with that part. But it is not fair to ask them to handle stuff they are uncomfortable with in the first place, so get passed the emo-stuff first. You have a right to vent, and to be heard, but those people also have a right not to wanna go near something that makes them that uncomfortable, and not having to deal with something they aren't equipped to deal with.
