@Wanderer, I have felt similar, as an ENFP. I think it is a tendency of NFs who are so open and absorbing by nature to shut down and become shelled sometimes to protect ourselves, when we become stressed. I would think that surrounding yourself with environments that are safe and peaceful as often as possible would help you ease back into your natural soft-skinned self.
Ironically, my ESFJ boyfriend pretty much always knows what he wants and I pretty much never do. We're both good at gifts. She forgot to mention the overriding factor of J-dom versus P-dom, the cross-temperament people-reading skills of all NFs, and the impact of Extraversion and Feeling combined.Originally Posted by Vicky Jo
