    @The Great One
    you're right

I suspect these guys are sp/sx as the so/sx enfps have a VERY different feel to them (sorta like cuddly.honest, used car salesmen).

    Things I notice:

    1. Very poor social skills at times-totally oblivious about ettiquette-Fe blind. Thy will vary from being very silent and watching and then just blurt out inapproiate things. Then they turn on the silly switch and can become very goofy and silly, sweet.

    2. Hyperanalytical, watching everything, tendency to fixate on certain types of information

    3. Obsessed with patterns

    4. Rude, excessively blurt, tend to stutter on words.

    5. They look and act like STJs most of the time, but really strange goofy ones.

    Have you guys seen these folks around?

    @Elfboy

    lol, I told you.

    Also I think another good example of one of these Ne<Te ENFP's would be "Bill Cosby".

    With the exception of stuttering, this just sounds like ENFP's in Ne-Te loops. I'm in a bit of this funk now, so threads like "How to use Te without being a jerk" are really interesting to me. But to say that there are ENFP's that just are this way, like permanently.. I'm not sure if I agree with that. People in Ne-Te loops do look a bit weird though.
    So do ENFP's with good access to all functions, lol.

    Orobas, do you have any thoughts on why there would be such a clusterf*ck of unhealthy ENFPs in your workplace? (I'd love to know what kind of HR / Psych screening test is skewing the results to uber ENFPness.)

    Orobas still hasn't returned Man...I've been keeping my eye on this thread because I so want to learn more about this! While I do think I'm an ENFP weirdo...that is neurotic...I don't think I'm one of these NeTe varieties as I don't see myself in the descriptive list presented in the OP. But like I said...I still want to learn more. This sounds like a crazy workplace!

    Every applicant is prescreened with an abstract IQ test, pattern recognition test and then a personality screening test of unknown categorization-to assess for values. Only after poassing that do they get an interview. Certain positions seem to have particular attriutes of intorversion/extroversion that are being sought out as well. I spoke mistakenly-for dev roles it is a mix of INTJs, INTPs, then INFPs. For everything else, it is about 70% ENFPs.

    I'd say the ENFPs are a split across a couple of different sub-types..maybe 20% NeTe sp/sx, 10% NeFiTe so/sx and 60% NeFiTe sx/so.

    I agree these folks are totally not entps. An entp can be piercing, but typically they are very deliberate when they do so (ignoring inadvertant debating when younger) and not overtly blunt and blundering in thier speech.

    I have always felt that Somatic Narcissism aligns very nicely with SeFeTi and Cerebral Narcissism aligns very nicely with NeFeTi. Having spent a great deal of time studying a particular entp man who was NeFeTi, it strikes me that it was not simply a choice for him to "not be self-centered". His entire mindset was altered and in his mind his worldview seemed very reasonable.
