    Default What happens to Enfps as they get older?

    I would love to hear any personal evolution stories from other ENFPs out their own personal transformation over the years, or anyone that knows anything about the subject. The only old ENFP I now is my grandfather, and we got him to take the test last night. The dude seems like an old kid that is all I can say, everyone has fun hanging around him except my dad, who is an ESTJ, and only respects his father but will try to avoid him at all costs, just because my granpa keeps him in check and my dad can't reply to him.

    at 21, I will admit that over the last few years I have changed so much and became more comfortable with who I am, but only as of recently do I feel like I understand myself. Will this evolution continue, or will have I kind of settled on at a comfortable place.

    Please tell me your stories of evolution, I would love to hear them, and everyone is welcome, younger or older than me.

    my aunt is an ENFP; she's 57. i don't know how she was before, but she has a very very prevalent Te now.

    my grandpa was an ENFP (he died about 4 years ago), and he barely ever used any functions other than Ne and Fi. probably the most P person i've ever met.

    i guess i'm trying to say that it depends on the person and their environment. i think my aunt learned to lean on her Te because her dad didn't use it much at all.

    What a choice: Fat or wrinkled.

    (I'm glad I'm an INTP: I get to choose between social isolation vs. public eccentricity.)

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I am a 46 year old ENFP. The good news for me is I am a LOT more assertive. I will pound someone's ass if they do something hurtful or disrespectful to me or someone I care about. I am much more sure of myself and my choices. I am a huge risk taker and find that I am even more so as I get older. I relate incredibly well to younger people/children and am still as flexible (even more so!) in my thinking as ever. Damn glad not to be shut down like SJ's who get more rigid as they get older.

    Oh, and I am more affectionate and expressive/extroverted than I was as a youth. I was incredibly introverted until my mid-twenties.

    I find that's not type-dependent in talking to lots of women... happened to me between 45 and 50. My theory is that's why some men go to younger women they can still control.
