    ENFP for me
    although an ENTP would probably the best for me
    I adore Fi, and have plenty of it myself
    plus too much Fe would annoy me, since my Fe annoys me

    SO = significant other.

    --

    A moderate extravert would help balance me but not be too draining because of my more mild introversion (an introvert tends to force me to take up the extravert role, which is more draining, IMO).

    So, ENFx so far. I have a male ENFP friend whom I adore, and my father is also an ENFP which worked well matched with my SJ mom. ENFPs and I tend to light each others fires pretty easily. But I have a thing for ENFJs (romantic or platonic). Not all ENFJs, but when it clicks, it is my favourite. Ni can dive deep together without much effort at all when it's the same flavour.

    anyway, i voted ENFJ. theoretically speaking, the an extroverted judger would best help me carry out my goals, and an other intuitive feeler would be the most supportive and understanding.

    I guess we can only make one choice? I tried to vote for both ENFJ and INFJ.

    Eh. Probably INFP, though they can be a little too much like me. Still, they're the NFs I "connect" best with. I don't think I'd get on with ENFPs or ENFJs, but I suppose it's possible. I think that I might just work better with NTPs.

    INFJs, I like but I can't read most of them and I get confused. They internalize a lot, in general, and the Ni leaves them very inscrutable unless they are very good at putting out steady signals.

    I love INFPs but there is still a Ti/Fi clash. INFP friends are good to talk to, but I don't know about marriage.

    ENFJs are extroverted but in a low-key way (so they're engaging).
    Their Ni means they usually can see my POV and that of others, and I have a strong Ni. Also allows for lots of fun moments.
    They also tend to be responsible and are thinking long-term about other people's personal growth and care about it -- same as I do. I am more primarily an explorer and model builder, but usually to the ends of growth for people, and they have similar passions. I have a stroke of seriousness underneath all the goofy, and they have it too.
    Their Fe and mine actually locks up too, there are certain ways people should be treated, so we both have similar interaction styles in that way and agree on a "best approach."
    Finally, I like them being F's because if I was with a T, I'd probably end up having to play more "F" and I just cannot do it long-term to that degree. The T person would also feel far too cold to me and I couldn't make a deep-enough connection. The F provided by the ENFJ gives me space to be me.
    Jennifer, I find that I have many of the characteristics that you portrayed the ENFJ as having. On the other hand, I have a very strong Ne and strong Ni preference with very strong Fe and Fi preferences, which makes my type: WEIRD. But technically, I am ENFP. So we aren't all bad.

    No NFs for me...NT is much more engaging. I'm pretty sure my husband is NT.

    Get out of my mind!
    I don't know any ENFPs offhand, so I'll leave them out. My dad is ENFJ, my brother INFP and one ex INFJ. Getting along with my ENFJ dad is effortless for pretty much the reasons Jennifer described.

    INFJ ex could be great. But he was sometimes too inscrutable, and had trust issues he admitted. It was as if he had several layers and I should be happy he let me into a deeper layer than others, because *no one* goes further. Not so good for someone driven to understand the complexities of the people they care about. Meanwhile, he was very much into getting at my own core, which (surprise) I am similarly disinclined to allow. Couple inscrutability with high sensitivity and it's too exhausting. But maybe worth it?

    With INFP brother, we "get" each other a lot, too, but this isn't always good, because we also understand well enough to see the underlying motivations we don't like (F v. T). When it's good, it's awesome, but when we disagree, the psychological skirmishes and one-up-manship can be all too effective. We know how to rile each other up, and do it for kicks.

    How YOU doin??

    I love shy girls...so I would probably tend to lean towards "I"....and I love "NF's"
