"The subject chooses to sit in shadow and search for wisdom by reflecting upon his trial. The problem is not that he is cold and wet, but that cold and wet seems problematic, so he embraces those hardships in order to best them."
Thanks for that.
If I understood it correctly...it meant that by the time we make a decision, its too late?? and we are regretting it?
I doubt thats the case with ONLY ENFPs....
Not quite. What it means is that P's, not just ENFP's, but INTP's and all other P's for that matter, like to keep options open as long as possible and may switch between various options many times before settling on one.
Chocolate or vanilla? Chocolate. No Vanilla, I had chocolate yesterday. I haven't had strawberry in ages. Ok, let's ask what the most popular flavor is? Chocolate!!! MMMM, can I get that with vanilla? no wait ...
Let's say you switch from apples to pumpkins to bananas. The problem is that the bananas might not make sense when viewed in light of the original problem which might have been to make a pie. Apple pie is great, pumpkin pie too, but banana pie? How did you get from pumpkin to banana? If you're an intuitive, which we both are, it could be that you were making a Halloween pumpkin head and cut out a piece that looked like a banana. For a sensor, it could just be that the bananas and pumpkins were next to each other in the supermarket.
LOL...nice technique!! Wonder what technique I should use to try spotting INTPs...mmmmmmm
Ask an INTP something relatively complicated, like the amount of time it would take a photon to emerge from the gravitational influence of The Sun--about a couple of hundred thousand years--then watch as his or her eyes shoot off in different directions as they attempt to serialize a multi-dimensional answer into a string of words. When we do this we are trying to assemble the answer by fitting different pieces of puzzle together. In this respect I think we are a lot like ENFPs. What you do with people, we do with thoughts and ideas. In the same way you can get bored with people once you've figured them out, we can get bored with problems once we've figured them out.
