i'm trying to type someone. this girl claims she is an ENFP, but for some reason i keep leaning more towards xSFP.
i'm somewhat familiar with this person but i wouldn't say the best of friends. whenever it's just me and this girl, though i am the claimed introvert, i feel much more talkative than her. however, she's a very reaffirming type of person. she definitely keeps engaged, from what i can tell, as well. she's very cutesy and makes a lot of cutesy noises. she's very smiley. definitey an xxFP, there's no doubt about that. she's stylish, in an indie, rebellious, hippy, punk type of way. she recently got a new tattoo, but when i asked her what prompted her, she seemed a bit more withholding as to why she decided on her tattoo. in my other experiences with ENFP's, a question like that would have prompted a thirty minute explanation of the profound symbolism it held for them. this particular girl, however, simply responded in, "i've just wanted it for a long time." which sounded more like an ISFP response. the meaning is there, but we feel we lack the ability or sometimes even energy to explain. she's a bit of a hippy, runs around barefooted a lot. she'll go days without showering.
another quality of ENFP's that i've noticed, is that they are generally very smart, and often intellectual people. and they never really give off a pompous or show offy vibe when it comes to their intellect. maybe in art... but never intellect. however, with this particular girl, i feel that when topics of politics or philosophy come up, that she feels a need to appear smart. (i am in no way making judgments, simply observing.) i feel like this is more of an ESFP realm of reaction to "smart" topics. (not that ESFP's aren't smart, but rather in my general experience, perhaps insecure due to how they are generally perceived.)
this girl, however, can be a bit "attention" craving. in large groups, she'll often be very loud, sometimes even screaming. usually seen quoting things from movies or shows, or just in general making cute noises. but not so much conversing. she's more of a joker and a fun-girl.
i came to her with one of my own personal exboyfriend/new girlfriend, but still friends issues. she went on about how i need to play the "cool" girl, and how that was basically her motto with dealing with those sticky situation-be the cool girl. i felt like this wasn't really NF advice, but perhaps more in the realm of ESFP?
what do you ENFP's think? or those of you who know ENFP's well.
