    Oh I see. I may not think I am but I am :P

    You are not more aware of flaws just because you are exposed to them. If that were the case, the most reckless people would be the wisest.

    That's the definition.

    1. an outgoing, gregarious person.
    2. Psychology. a person characterized by extroversion; a person concerned primarily with the physical and social environment (opposed to introvert).

    –verb (used with object)
    4. Psychology. to direct (the mind, one's interest, etc.) outward or to things outside the self.

    In this way, no, we're not alike. NFP means that you look towards the future, yes, but your extroverted nature makes you much more aware of immediate flaws by exposure to them on a frequency far higher than an introvert with be exposed to them. In this way, you, as an ENFP are much more likely to learn from mistakes because you will repeat them more often.

    You're much more suited for relationships because you have more experience with them.

    You may not think you are, but you are
    yeah...i'm just gonna go ahead and disagree with this post and that other one of yours...i am not present focused..i am not! and i do not learn from my mistakes! grr!

    If you're exposed to your flaws more often and haven't proportionally learned from them and fixed them, you're just stupid. As your example of reckless people not learning from their recklessness goes to show.

    I can provide a video of a kid on a skateboard with an arm in a cast falling and breaking his other arm if you want...

    Which leaves you with two choices:

    Either you're more adept at relationships than your Introverted counterparts, or you're stupid

    ... okay

    If that's what you want, then you don't learn from your mistakes.

    I'd figure you'd want to agree with me, since I don't really see how what you're asking me to say is actually a compliment, but whatever lol

    That whole stereotype about F-doms not being able to think...

    Not learning from your mistakes seems kind of ...stupid. I'm going to have to agree with that.

    i suspect the lessons i learn from my mistakes are not always the same lessons other people would take away from them.

    Or your premise is flawed. Or you're right...and...*gasp*...some people are stupid I prefer the word unwise, but I could see myself using the same terminology in casual conversation, sure. Either way, I wouldn't use type to measure how much someone learns in life.

    I just don't like the blanket statement that ENFPs don't learn from their mistakes - not learning from your mistakes seems like something you'd need a 12 step program for. It does seem to lack a certain kind of intelligence...the kind of intelligence that Te/Si would have, as a matter of fact....so maybe it's something that younger ENFPs or less-balanced ENFPs have a problem with. I've noticed that some ENFPs are "floatier" like they live in Ne/Fi without much Te or Si, which is part of the reason why I questioned my type so much, like gah wtf.

    Then again I was raised by an ISTJ and someone who was probably EStJ, so I had no choice but to develop those functions, and I think I'm better for it. Maybe not nicer, though. Ha.

    What part of my premise is flawed?
