    Default ENFPs, do you ever feel more like SPs or NTs than NFs?

    I'm certain my function order is Ne-Fi-Te-Si, but a lot of the time, I don't really relate to NFs and feel more like an SP. sometimes I just wanna cut loose and not take life too seriously and some of the things NFs say make me wanna vomit it's so cliche (no offense intended, but seriously, you know it's true lol)
    being that ENFPs are a pretty dynamic, versatile type, do you guys ever feel more like SPs or NTs (or SJs)?

    My thought process can change, yeah. I think I mostly feel like an NF in my natural state. A lot of times I can mold to the people around me, and I think the most pleasant and easy change is an SP. So if I'm around SP's, (specifically at work where a lot of lightening up is needed), I will easily adopt that. Sometimes it's just nice to be out in a hurricane without listing all of the ways I can die

    I don't know that I feel like anything. But people have suggested that I might be either NT or SP in the past. The SP maybe from that I have learned to how to 'cut loose' and am interested in visual aesthetics. The NT probably comes from the fact that I can go technogeek. Type really shouldn't be taken too seriously.

    I do think that there's a myth that F's, Fi users especially are emotional all the fucking time. Most of the time I'm in my room doing philosophy readings or just messing around in general. Not much to get pissed about.

    Confirmation Bias ="It is the peculiar and perpetual error of the human understanding to be more moved and excited by affirmatives than by negatives." --Francis Bacon. CB runs rampant on MBTI sites. Honestly it's more than a little frustrating. Dependent on my mood and at any time in my life, I have been capable of acting like any of the types, and people evolve over time as well into different types. Anyone is capable of being as cold-hearted and logical as an INTJ, anyone can be as silly as an ESFP, and anyone can act like an ENFP it that is what they aspire to. I have found that people who have really "dug in" to MBTI are sorta typists and frequently take a know-it-all approach with those who disagree. You are a human being, capable of a great variety of feeling, thought, experiences and choices, with the only limiting factor being your attitude. We exist more in the gray area then black and white.

    ENFP's with strong Se of who have grown in "Se" environment might be seen as SP. A ENFP growing up might use Se as an outlet for Ne (as I did as a child). Se feeds Ne, I think. On the other hand, I don't think there are "normal" ENFP's. We're all different, but alike in some things, and that is why there isn't a typical ENFP at all. There are just people who share similar traits on some parts of their personality.

    interesting. i grew up in a very NT environment and have also spent my career in one. as a result i think i present more like an ENTJ in business settings.

    or so i thought, until Steve Jobs died and i had to present to a venture capitalist the next morning. when asked about the inspiration for my current product, i teared up. i knew i'd be asked this question going into the meeting and positioned the tissues nearby. (you'd think emotion would have negatively impacted our business discussions, but the VC got choked up, too. my awesome [and slightly alarmed INTJ] investor redirected the discussion while we dabbed at our eyes.)

    all quite highlarious in retrospect. i mean, who makes VCs cry?

    ENFPs.




    p.s. happy monday <3

    I don't think this is that strange. Since I also live in 'high tech capital' I drove past Apple headquarters after Steve Jobs passed and there was a steady stream of people visiting the little memorial set up for him outside their building. Well into the wee hours.

    When I last worked in a corporate environment I thought it was one of the most bizarre workplace environments because there was an undercurrent of "LOVE your job" (in the feelery sense) and the CEO would give these highly emotional and whimsical speeches as well as pleas to employees. It was very confusing for me. I would have preferred either a straight "business is serious business" vibe or else a "let's hug everyone because people's feelings are more important than meeting quarterly projections" vibe. I think for an Fi user who wasn't really plugged into the company's brand or corporate culture, I was a fish out of water. I think an Fe user, regardless of whether or not they cared about the company Kool-Aid would would be much better able to navigate.
