    Western society does not value intuition which... when considering how personal/customized this phenomenon is...it's difficult for me to see this as an entirely negative thing. We need the ability to arrive at reasonable collective understandings of reality... and objective, analytical, diagnostic, scientific methods are the most effective and respectful (in my opinion as it pertains to what is being discussed) way to go about doing this. <-Learning this shared language and system takes time...time spent being taught to set aside our intuitions to the point many of us lose this ability (almost) altogether.

    Intuition, however, knows its own significance. It is a precious heirloom willed to us by our ancestors and written with love onto our dna. Intuition will never stop trying to reassert its paramount position in your life. Intuition will teach you to pay attention to it by showing you what happens when you don't.

    I think I see a little of myself in this girl, except that I'm a male introverted thinker.
    You would probably be happier with an ENFJ then you would be an ENFP. My dad is an INTP and a very close friend of mine is also an INTP. What I've noticed is that when we talk about things that are not serious, we get along perfectly. But anything where decisions need to be made, becomes really hard to work with an INTP for me (sorry put ENFP before) as opposed to an INTJ where the chemistry is perfect.

    As far as spotting an ENFP. ENFP's have a large range so they are hard to spot but overall we are the sage philosophers, standard bearers. Highly driven to connect with people in ways that really matter. I like to make fun of myself and I also like to tease others a lot.

    Seeing an ENFP irl is not easy, it's not like they walk around all bubbly and cheerful non-stop. I notice more when we talk. Then our Ne makes contact, and we recognize the familiarity in the other, which opens that door.

    Honestly, I can't tell which ENFPs among us are actually really mature, and which ones are trying way too hard to look friendlier than they are and it's working. It's confusing.

    Generalized ENFP Acquisition Strategy

    1) Intersperse the area with intellectually self-assured (but emotional unavailable!) introverts. They will serve as your bait.
    2) ???
    3) Profit!

    Lol. ENFP's are probably the most misunderstood of all the personality types. Some say "INFJ's" but in my opinion ENFP's have the hardest time being themselves in today's society. A lot of drop outs even though we have above average IQ. A lot of addicts. If you want to see the ENFP struggle read "Antifragile" by Nicholas Nassim Taleb and you will see an highly intelligent well developed ENFP's take on the world. Also one of the greatest books of all time. So ACCURATE it's scary. It will probably destroy your view on the world.
