    Default ENFP 7w6s vs ENFP 7w8s (vs ENFPs of other E Types)

    as per request of @Esoteric Wench
    I'll be posting more in this thread when I think of stuff to put in. In the mean time, what are some similarities/differences you notice between ENFPs who are 7w6 vs 7w8?
    Edit: now accomodating other ENFP E-Types

    I think that the biggest difference comes in the form of self restraint. 7w8's are probably more likely to think about the consequences later, while a 7w6 might think things through a little bit before doing something. (in my opinion)

    personally I tend to think about the consequences but then think "screw it, I'm doing it anyway" (though as an Sp dom I'd say I have better impulse than most 7w8s, or 7w6s for that matter)

    the biggest difference I've noticed is that 7w8 ENFPs are often more are a little more cool, to the point and TJ-ish in demeanor. 7w6s are warmer, more agreeable and more goofy/bubbly. they tend to have either a softer or more avoidant approach to conflict while the 7w8 will just tell you "mmm, no, that's BS"

    Well, I've certainly never felt or been told that I am at all "tj-ish" but I think that both 7w8's and 7w6's are capable of being agreeable or goofy, I guess it depends on the circumstances at hand.

    - goofy wasn't the right word. 7w8s and 7w6s have different flavors of goofiness (it's difficult to explain the difference but you can generally tell 7w6 humor from 7w8 humor)
    - 7w8s can be agreeable, we'd usually rather have a good time than start trouble, but 7w6s put more energy toward avoiding being disagreeable. 7w8s don't really care if conflict emerges (it's a natural part of life and communication, and it's usually entertaining)
    - it depends on the 7w8 (as you said). some ENFP 7w8s are more like Richard Branson, others are more TJ-ish


    PS: we need some more 7w6s
