    No I'm just mocking you. I'm simple like that.

    The trend with these threads is that you like telling everyone what they are like, when you really haven't a clue. And when people point this out you get mad and start projecting further.

    But if you wish to paint yourself as a victim then go right ahead. Nothing seems to stop you.

    I think the word we are looking for, Elfboy, is projection. The traits you deem to be ENFP aren't necessarily ENFP traits, but your thoughts on what ENFP's traits are, or should be. Thus why you cannot speak about anyone else, because really you aren't speaking about anyone else, but you and possibly a few other ENFP's, or personalities like yours. Don't assume that these are THE ENFP traits.

    I see you've decided to play the victim card.

    Which gets me thinking, how do we ever attach general behavioral charactoristics to any type? How are the type profiles, outside of clearly defined cognitive use even developed? An INTP profile will read very differently than an ESFP profile.. where do these behavioral observations come from? How could there ever be any merit if one can only ever speak for one? It seems that the outside observation of many should say something, yes?

    I wholeheartedly agree that Elfboy can not speak for ALL ENFP's.. but then the act of posting a thread to be challenged and expanded on seems to give the intention of consideration.

    @Elfboy: Ah, so this was a drunken thread.

    No wonder you got so defensive about it so quickly.

    As always I love the "high road" hipocrisy that you consistently post with. Carry on.

    A large enough sample size could solve the equation. Take the same, remark on what was different, determine the thought process indicated with the same and call those traits "ENFP". I mean it does all start with one. I think it all comes down to the fact that he wasn't listing from the same, but remarking on what was different, which, wouldn't apply to the ENFP's, but him as an individual.

    I think there's a confusion here between "stereotype" and "misconception". The former is taking a characteristic present on a few, or even several, members of a group and applying it to the group as a whole; the latter is a fundamentally wrong assumption about all the group members that turns out to be generally untrue.

    Did I get it right?

    Lord Elfboy,
    I know ENFPs aren't supposed to care about what I think about them but, fwiw, this thread one of the coolest ones in this subforum.

    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

    @Patches

    please close this thread, it's resulted in nothing more than snarky comments and laughable attempts at ad hominem

    thanks,

    - delivering a verbal pimp slap to a hater
    - being an attention whore
    - revenge (revenge isn't the answer my ass. that shit feels fantastic!)

    essentially, the entirety of my ego comes from how much destruction and disturbance I create around me. noble huh? LOL
