    Default NFPs and NFJs: Do you feel closer to each other, or to FPs and FJs?

    NFPs: Do you feel more in common with the NFs on the other side of the tracks, or your SFP brothers and sisters?

    NFJs: Same question to you, but with regards to NFPs and SFJs...









    And here's the NT version of the same question...

    I don't think I know any other NFPs. I'm afraid I don't relate to many SFPs. Two ENFJs I know are kind of distant, but the older one was one of the more encouraging/mentoring people I know. She understood me well.

    It is a tough question, but I think I feel more in common with other FPs. I don't know many NFJs in real life (I cannot recall knowing anyone), but other FPs, and I have at least something in common with them always. Here on the forums I know also NFJs, and while I can agree with some on some things, the similarities seem to be more with FPs still.


    edit: I understood it so that either I have to choose ISFP, ESFP, INFP, ENFP vs INFJ, ENFJ. Obviously though I would have more in common with people of same type, so it would be a strange question, so I imagined that same type is excluded.

    I do have more in common with other NFPs than NFJs, based on my current interactions.

    I have more values and opinions in common with other FJs, but it doesn't mean I get along better with them than I do with the NFPs.

    The question was whether you have more in common with the FPs than the NFJs.

    In other words, do you feel more in common, as a group, with ISFPs, ESFPs, INFPs, and ENFPs or INFJs, ENFJs, INFPs, and ENFPs.

    On the flip side, I feel like I have things in common with both SFJs, NFPs, and NFJs. All different.

    SFJ: With ESFJ I feel like we have a similar attitude in general. ISFJs are totally alien to me in general.
    NFP: With INFP I feel like we're really similar in a lot of ways, but in other ways very different. I can somewhat relate to an ENFP and some of where they are coming from, but they are mostly alien.
    NFJ: INFJs are either very frustrating to me or I get them. But mostly frustrating. ENFJs I feel the same about as I do INFP. We have a similar attitude like what I said about ESFJ, but other things are totally alien.

    I totally get other SFPs though.

    I would just add that I identify pretty well with Thomson's description of IFPs (she kind of organizes chapters by dominant functions). If I met some ISFPs like that, I'd have plenty in common (and I think I have).

    IRL, I usually have more in common with NFJs as far as interests and life philosophies go; the "NF temperament" makes sense in my experience, as far as behavioral patterns. SFPs depend a lot on other personality factors, but I get along with them well as long as they are rather intelligent and we share some interests. However, if we share interests, I find its for very different reasons, whereas I don't find that as often with NFJs (usually similar reasons for similar interests). If I have nothing in common with an ESFP, then I don't tend to clique with them though; their thinking is the most foreign to me of the FPs and even the NFJs.

    It's a very individual thing - I feel like I have quite a bit in common with several ENFPs on this site, but then again some ENFPs I don't relate to at all. My IRL bff from high school is ENFJ and I have a close ENFP friend, and I would say that I love them equally and relate to them intellectually equally, but I probably emotionally understand the ENFP better ...same with my ENFJ sister who I get along with quite well usually and feel strongly is my intellectual equal - but emotionally, I don't get her, and she doesn't understand certain things about me and my ExFP sister and our emotional make-up. I know for a fact I have more in common with certain traits with my ExFP sister and ESFP mom though they both piss me off more often lol.

    There are some INFJs on this site I relate to, and I tend to respect their type, but then others seem ridiculously uptight to me, and I don't relate at all. Again, this is an individual thing.
