You may think you're keeping it to yourself but believe me, maybe it's because I'm a F-dom myself, but with Fi-doms they're feelings just emanate from them in pulsing waves without saying a word. When it's a good mood, it's a silent cheery buoyancy like a fragrant flower in the room contributing to the overall pleasantness and well-being of the atmosphere. When it's bad it's this inexplicable draining energy.
I`m being of topic here, but forgive me- Wow, that`s similar to how my (possibly INFJ) mom once described my moods as; she said that when I`m in a good mood it affects everyone around me, it uplifts their mood as well, wheter they are concious of it or not, but when I`m in a bad mood everyone knows it instantly and backs off. Maybe that`s a sign of immaturity or what? I`m working on not spreading bad energy.
Now that I think about it, maybe that`s why my English teacher in HS said I was like a germ that infects everyone around him!

Your entire post was fantastic and dead on.
Here are things i didn't expect to see, but really enjoyed and relate to...

- Seek out, create, maintain, and organize social connections above almost anything else. They make friends, or friendly connections, rather easily. They don't see themselves as social butterflies though, because they have high standards for friends - so anything less than "deep" is not seen as anything extraordinary. From my perspective though, it is interesting how easily they get a response from people and how well they adapt to the other person to do so.
- Most of the ones I know are not ambitious in the way the "typical" J is. The dreamer/idealistic/perfectionist aspect of being an NF can get in the way, or their ambitions are so much in the interpersonal realm that practical goals get put on the back burner.
How would an ENFJ personals ad typically read?
Well, on social networking sites, they often have little personal info, but a lot of interests and opinions listed. In a contradiction of that they'll sometimes have a blog entry that is very personal in nature, or they'll post rather emotionally dramatic statements for their statuses (but often vague again). Many of the ones I know like to write, so blogs are a big thing for them.
