    okay so i may have read this thread last year and forgot, maybe i even already commented..i'll find out in a sec...but are you all reeeaaally that warm and gooey? i get emotionally deep but not really gooey so much. from my perspective...i think enfps kinda are way more gooey...but you guys are more deeply emotional..probably.

    edit: sorry that was just to address that part of it but...come on man...i hope you don't still feel that way. infps are awesome. i'll come back in a sec...i'm trying to read the thread haha

    That is funny you say that! I dated an ENTP and he would always call me aloof. I thought he was great, a bit of a player but we got along really well. He would not stop calling me aloof...I felt like he was used to women just falling all over him and that is exactly what I was not going to do. We had crazy instant mental/physical chemistry...it was insane. He seemed like he needed what I did...to be pursued, he did pursue me, but I was hesitant to give back because I felt like he was a player. He did say one of the sweetest things to me I'll never forget, but you guys are tricky to trust.

    I show a great depth of emotion when I feel "safe" with someone, ENFPs and ENTPs don't make me feel that way and I don't know why. There is always this wonder if whether or not they are being genuine and that's really important to me.

    I have a close ENFP friend but we have known each other for years. Now that I think of it she did say I was standoffish (those were not her exact words, she was more blunt lol) at first.

    We are very warm, goofy and gooey and yes deeply emotional once we let you in. We protect our hearts, a broken hearted INFP is a mess.

    If you have ever witnessed one, you would probably just want to shake them, it's a sad sad sight.

    If you try to appeal to my guarding instinct, you'll fail. I have an infp ward, by now !!

    Part of what I so like about ENFP's is that they really "put out there" and "let it all hang out there" stuff that so many things in my life taught me "were not socially appropriate." Anti-Fi, anti-Ne, attitudes, pro "squared away STJ-ness." ENFP's are like "healers" for me, showing me ways to "put it all [Fi, Ne] out there, and have it be socially acceptable." That and/or they show me "not to [care] if other people dont appreciate having Fi and Ne put it out there and to do it anyways."
    that warmed my heart a lil awww i feel like i'm so often trying to express that to my infp bf...like...you are freakin awesome...if someone doesn't get it that's on them. that just means they're not awesome in the same way you are...and if you value different things why do you care what they think of you??!!

    This pretty much perfectly describes why I love ENFPs.

    INFPs are great, but I've never hit it off with them as well. I have some good INFP friends, but generally when I encounter an INFP irl, we end up disliking each other for the typical shadow-oriented reasons. By contrast, I've had a "click" with almost every confirmed ENFP I know, right off the bat.

Maybe even coming to the conclusion eventually that it's impossible to trust/truly know who likes them for what quality and why.

    It's just as possible to be lonely and feel misunderstood in a crowd.
    this is such a good point. i know my infp wouldn't like to have a lot of attention.
