I have been wracking my brains on this one. Please help me!
For the past 3 years, I have believed he was an enfp...because I am one and we are similar...and since I believe my mom was an istj, where else could I have gotten my enfp label??
However...while he did have some enfp characteristics...very, very playful, loved practical jokes, a salesman's dream (which my mom said was because he was in sales), an introvert when he got home from work, as he would sit in his chair and recharge... My mom used to complain that he gave all his energy to the outside world and would come and sit.
Now, the one thing that my dad didn't have that I thought all enfp's DO have was a great sense of communication. He was terrible at communicating his ideas... he would say a few things and expect us to finish the idea and to just get it...
Now...i am married to an isfp...and the similarities between my dad and husband are huge.
They both LOVE with a huge love, sensual things such as great food, back and foot rubs, lots of affection, loving words and they both have/had these hugely expressive eyes, that beam 'love'; in other words, very, very strong feeling.
What other characteristics should I look for to figure him out?
I think 3 of the 4 children are NF. Does that mean ONE of the parents had to be NF or could it have come from grandparents?
My dad was also HIGHLY spontaneous and loved adventure, thrills, and fun with gusto. He would sometimes just sit and look at me with those eyes of his and I would feel the love emanating to me from them; my husband's eyes do the same thing.
I would love to hear your insights!
