    Default NFs are cute, warm and bubly people....

    Am I the onle one who can't stand this stereotypical description? It seems like most of the characeristics of NF types view us like that... That was the reason why I had some hard time relating to being an NF, but now I actually realised something. A lot of us actually seem to have some depression, anxiety, or emotonality issues, but do you express it around others? I realised, that around others I really am nice, warm, cute and bubly.. So are we these types of people, who despite how troubled they can be inside, we always be nice and warm and others will forever see us that way?

    I think we can either come across as being warm, bubbly, and nice (and with that, sometimes generally annoying) like you said, or troubled, depressed, etc. Both stereotypes bother me. I think a lot of times we just don't know how to describe the complex emotions we feel on a regular basis, so the way we describe it or the way it comes across are in simple words such as the ones you just mentioned.

    I sometimes look very NTP-ish...
    I don't seem as deep as when I was younger...
    I guess, though, that we need to take NFGEEKS advice and just be ourselves...

    I'm warm and bubbly like a pissed off porcupine.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    People who cannot see passed the initial bubbles tend have several of the following options happen to them:

    a) Nothing. I just let them think what they like and slide out of my life
    b) Underestimate me in every way and get shafted in the end by their own misgivings - some of them even blame me for their lack of insights ( 'YOU played me!!') - when they were looking to manipulate me by abusing my assumed naiveté, innocence or supposed lack of intelligence and I didn't live up to their 'expectations')
    c) I actively lift the veil of lightheartedness and startle/shock them in just a split second to give them pause and a second go at their 'first impression' of me
    d) They are important enough to me to take the time to show vulnerability, remove the lightheartedness to replace it with a calm seriousness and wait for their response.

    Tbh, I expect at least some effort from people to realize that I aint one dimensional

    Call me high-maintenance or idealistic, but there you have it. No offence, but you're an idiot if you don't realise there is more to me than fucking bubbles. So no, we are not those people. We are so much more than that, but it is often that that people want to see as it is easy, pleasant and doesn't mean they have put in more effort or deal with obstacles.

    It is like calling all NTs coldhearted bastards or if you wanna stick with positive stereotypes 'brilliant people'. There is *so* much more to any one NT that it is ridiculous to reduce them to a card-board cut out.

    Most enfps are very cute and bubbly people. Yes they have their less bubbly moments And then they become warm and loving. They have a serious side also, but that's usually when there is some goal to accomplish. To pull them back into bubbly or warm and loving is a piece of cake. Just what I have noticed throughout my life.
    Im out, its been fun

    Heh... I think this "stereotypical description" is more suited to SFs (no offense to any here). The NFs I know tend to be more balanced if you will with their thinking/feeling but that may be due to being more intuitive (long range thinking and thoughts rather than "in the moment" sensing so to speak). In either case... NFs can be cute/bubbly and such but most do have a perverse sense of humor (ENFP cousin tends to joke about sex all the time and an ENFJ I know tends to be flirtatious/advancing although this may be due to other factors as well...). Anyone want to add on to this that maybe SFs with their "in the moment" complimentary type of making you feel better mentality may be a tad bit more "cute/bubbly" than the NF's idealistic type feeling?
