    I think the points you guys are purporting are pretty spot on. The only problem is it seems our personality depends greatly on our external environment. For instance:

    Since I graduated high school all of my friends have moved away to college. I have had a relatively small group of friends that I can get close to and because of it I've gone very introverted. I've been serious at every moment of the day.

    Before they left I was as bubbly as you guys were describing. I did have my serious moments, and they may have been more common than my bubbly moments, especially when the topics of injustice and politics came up. My point here is this: I don't think a person's "bubblieness" is really going to help you spot an ENFP. Your best bets are hand gestures and their speech. The analogous speech is a dead giveaway. We literally do think in terms of comparisons and metaphors. But more specifically to identify the p in someone you have to look for the way they command things. If they come right out and tell you what you should do, they're J. If they suggest "we do something" then they're p. It's pretty helpful. Read The Pygmalion Project for the Idealist by Montgomery.

    Edit: had to fix my 'their's. I don't usually mess up on those, but I have a lot lately.

    For what it is worth, I am *not* bubbly.

    I am bubbly (but no 100% of time) and very energetic. Very energetic.

    Did I already mention that I'm very energetic?

    Yes, actually emotional vampires are one of the biggest problems I have currently. I really don't know how to deal with them and I certainly don't know how to hide my energy. If the energy flows, then it flows. I cannot restrict my energy because I love it (and hate it sometimes).

    I realize something that I do frequently when talking with people I know is voice characterizations. I especially love to imitate authority figures or people with unusual voices when reiterating prior conversations. I may make faces as part of the conversation as well. Seems to make the point over better, or to serve as levity at a darker moment. I can't remember when I started doing this, but I seem to be unable to stop.
