    Default ENFJ's Offended by Rejection of Help?

    Hi...something I noticed about my father the other day, who was typed as an ENFJ (he and I--an INFJ--are quite often on similar wavelengths about things).

    In a nutshell, my dad is easily offended when others reject his offers to help. It doesn't matter HOW politely they reject it, but he always seems bewildered and upset when they reject his help (maybe because some introverts might find their task easier without having to factor in another person). He also does the same when we try to offer to help HIM, and seems to express his difficulties as if he has some sort of martyr complex or something.

    Is this something other ENFJs do/feel?

    Sounds more like enneagram 2. Might want to look that up.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
