    Yup.

    And yup.

    Didn't read the whole thread, but eff it, that's good enough.

    i think i speak for many when i say what was that but as an extp i have to say it's true. i have an enfp sister and we spend most of our time together torturing each other because she always has an issue with me saying ^$#@(!#$ cause it violates her values

    Might be right on the ENFP side but I don't agree with the suggested differences on the ENTP side, ENTPs have a strong desire to understand the human condition.

    The following could just as easily work:

    We're just more interested in understanding because we find it fascinating than learning because we care about the other person and want to help them.

    I am close on the F/T bit of my ENFP. I have a strong desire to UNDERSTAND the human condition as well as CARING about the other person and wanting to help.

    Sure, I'd expect ENFPs to want to understand, I don't disagree that the statement applies to them, I just don't see that aspect as a way to determine an ENFP from an ENTP unless you take into consideration why they want to understand the human condition.

    From: ENFP Profile

    They want to both help (at least, their own definition of "help") and be liked and admired by other people, on bo th an individual and a humanitarian level.
    We want to be admired, too. But understood firstly. Not necessarily "loved" in a relationship, But that's just me.

    We also like to debate and switch sides based on being able to understand the opposition and wanting them to get their message across just as well.
    Or maybe I'm a weird ENFP.

    There's also an element of wanting to fix others' problems, and make their lives better. More of a general benevolence than specific.

    That's how you love an ENFP. You "get" them. You understand their soul.

    Any guy that can do that with me... well he'd better be prepared for my onslaught of reciprocal feelings.
