    This is the NFPs biggest failure with understanding TPs. You have a better chance reading a TJ with that method.

    To be fair, I think NFPs are the best when it comes to interpreting feelings. Essence is a bit vague though.

    No one knows anything about me unless I tell them. It might be cool to witness, but I think it's up to me. Not someone else.

    Maybe istps are unreadable. I have no idea. I don't know any.

    ISTP's are readable, they just fight it more.


    Or at least they pretend they do.

    The problem is that some ENFPs do not recognize that you guys work backwards from us. What is of importance to you, is often overlooked by us, and vice versa. Often we get the initial data and have no idea what to do with it, because we are not familiar enough yet with your make up. Doesn't mean the data isn't there though. It is like a blip on a radar...its just that we are turned around in the maze that is your brain

    It takes experience as you think in an unnatural way for us, whereas TJs do not. And it never really completely feels natural, even after gaining some insight. Kind of like scanning an alien brain. We have to keep in mind that the intensity of how we would experience something is often off compared to how you guys experience it, though you are experiencing *that particular thing*. It might just to have any value to you whereas we would consider it very valuable. Personality mapping in detail is even more important in TPs, ime.

    Again..thats coz for your brain we need to make an extra effort. And many ENFPs aren't even aware that this is the case, unless they do extensive research.


    Make no mistake though, hon..you are perfectly 'readable' with NFP skills

    I actually relish the challenge that is an STP brain as it is *so* different from ours, and there is so much to learn.

    NTPs in a way are too familiar, lulling you into a false sense of security, causing you to get turned around before you realize it

    Haha. I love ENFP mystical powers threads.

    I suppose no matter if you think we have it, getting to the essense of people is what we want. Which means that some of us eventually get good at it.

    I'm not willing to risk saying that I understand the ISTP, but I do understand a particular ISTP that I've known for a while. That was a very strange process of accomplishment. The early misreads were almost comical, if not tragic.

    I love reading. Reading a book with my morning coffee right now. A fluffy pillow hangs in the air and my mug is smoking, it's certainly difficult to read with so many light refractions.
