    I think both Aux-Fi types can be pretty fanboyish and excited about menial things. I can definitely see myself using that as an icebreaker. This is how the conversation would go:

    ENFP - OMG, YOU ALSO LIKE JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE?

    Some type - lol, yeah.

    ENFP - Justin Timberlake is like the greatest thing since ever. I love Justin Timberlake. He's my idol.

    When I feel very confused or hurt by something that someone has done, I feel practically incapable of reacting outwardly right away. No matter how ‘obvious’ it seems to other people- if something takes me off guard, it’s like kryptonite to me and it feels like it inhibits my ability to be able to interact with the external world. I have to 'shut off' and make some sense of it (eta: I need to find some kind of toe-hold on the situation before I even begin to move forward, it seems to me like Pe'ers always already have that toe-hold). I’ve noticed that Pe doms (and even aux, to some extent) are able to react to things immediately. We share the idealism, but seeing their ability to react to things immediately (especially emotional reactions) floors me because I just don’t have it.

    INFJs seem more outwardly reserved but inwardly more free and open. I find the opposite in some regards with ENFPs. On the surface they appear to be an open book, but are rather private people. ENFPs jump into new situations with both feet, while INFJs look at the water for awhile and then dip a toe in before wading out.

    This is both INFJ and ENFP.

    Real difference being, the INFJ would take multiple paragraphs spread out over the course of several hours to say something to that effect.

    The ENFP would just say it, within 3 seconds, and with a giggle at the end

    Those aren't stereotypes. Those are actual descriptions of actual artists I know and what they do and say. I guess in some instances I was assuming they are ENFP, but if they aren't that, what would they be? I can't make that stuff up - except the references to beavers. I did throw that in the description.

    Edit: Also, that's a stereotype? That ENFPs make up their own languages, etc.? What's with the rudeness too? Realize there is a range within each type and not all are in the arts or necessarily creative. The ENFPs I described whom I know personally are all quite intelligent and innovative, so I'm insulted that you called their descriptions "stupid" because they certainly aren't.

    I notice when it comes to discussing an idea, ENFPs would consider every possible direction to be true. There's a feeling like their thought process diverges outwards, that the external world can be molded and shaped. Whereas as an INFJ, I tend to take the ideas and converge it into a central concept. ENFP mental models are more divergent and spread out to every avenue. INFJ mental models take every avenue and bring it to one road.

    Yay! I'm glad because I was offering high praise. Ne-doms are the source of my sanity.
