    Default I tricked an ENFP ;)

    I told an ENFP friend of mine that I could read people's minds and she believed me. She has been on her guard ever since and it's really confusing me. She goes as far as telling me that if she had telepathic powers, she would think of it as a curse. I'm probably going to explain myself soon, but I don't get to "be" a telepath everyday so I'm going to have more fun. I think she justifiably fooled as I'm good enough with people, but not on a mind reading level. I also told her years ago that I could astral project myself into another plane of existence and she believed me. Man, ENFPs are really gullible to that supernatural stuff. I'm astounded.

    What would happen if a con-magician learned about this big secret and started selling his magic?

    Is it really ENFP's or is it just your friend?

    You should go check on her before she chokes on her own drool. The other side of the scenario, is that ENFP's pretend to be amused by the stories of others and act like we believe them because we don't like to upset them.

    Without knowing your friend it would be hard to figure out whats going on.

    I don't know what to say.
    Not representative of ENFP's at all.
    I can't say anything else without sounding mean.
    However, any type can be gullible.
    It depends on other qualities of the person than the personality.

    No one cares about the secret -- all that matters is the trick.

    I definitely can be gullible, I am inherently trustworthy and if I trust someone, I wouldn't expect them to lie. But being gullible and stupid, are two different things. Believing that someone got arrested twice during their teenage years when they in fact didn't is understandable especially if they tell you that that was the case, however believing they somehow had telekinetic powers is ludicrous, someone who would believe that, would carelessly and dangerously believe in anything, and we ENFPs are *not* like that.

    hmmmm, I dunno. I think ENFPs are susceptible to supernatural trickery to an extent. There have been other ENFPs that I talked to who believe in ghosts and monsters. I think the inspirations that come from amazing events seduces the ENFP into faith.

    Why would I be? I'm going to eventually explain things to her and it will all be okay in the end.

    Perhaps true and 99% passable in reality, however if you watched The Prestige, the real magic is in understanding the science and not experiencing a disappointing deception.

    How would it be dangerous? Isn't a part of happiness having to be fully willed and committed to a big delusion, lie, or fantasy? Anyways you make me feel guilty of taking advantage of this gulliableness.

    Hmmmm, legend does speak of the ENFP's deceptiveness.
