    I think bouncy INFPs tend to be 6, 7-fixed or So/Sx. I type Fiona as 469, and the other 3 in the OP seem 6w7 to me.

    How certain are you that you are not? If you're talking about being an enneagram four then it would be a "coolness" at a very high cost.

    Ha! But in person, among friends anyway, I do the "stream of perceptive, humorous comments" that INFPs are known for. I'm only "intense" with strangers & in certain moments with intimates. I have to watch the ISTJ-like biting remarks though; only I find those amusing, and only if my foot does't enter my yap. Well, sometimes I can get away with it if actually talking to an ISTJ.

    My ego is more hung up on being creative, insightful, and having integrity than possessing that Ne kind of cleverness & originality.

    Of the OP, I relate most to Fiona, but then, she's a woman. She's much more jittery than I usually am though. There are times I've thought her a 6, as she also has some kind of OCD where she gets panicky over weird stuff (read an anecdote about her digging through a dumpster middle of the night in fear she threw something out). I don't relate to that kind of neurosis & would expect it more likely to develop from a head type, but then maybe that's just illness & not an extension of the ego fixation. She mostly seems pretty obvious 4.

    I don't know whether there are 'two types of INFPs' so much as it just depends on the situation. Sometimes I'm goofy Ne-ish. Sometimes I'm very Fi with little evidence of Ne. Check out these two examples of Mike White I just posted and you'll see what I'm talking about-

    As far as 'less of a sullen quality' goes, you might want to keep in mind that Fiona Apple did write a song titled Sullen Girl. And here she talks about it-

    great interview. what type would you say the interviewer is? he seems to be pretty good at bouncing off her ideas etc, maybe Ne-dom ->ENTP?

    when we talk about Ne-INFPs and Fi-INFPs, do we assume that the 3rd function is still Si and the 4th Te? I mean, what would be the difference between an Ne-INFP and an ENFP, is it just a gradation or do you think a Ne->Fi->Si->Te (Ne-INFP) typology system is possible?

    I'm not really trying to describe them as legitimate subtypes, it's just a minor variation I've noticed. They all still come off as Fi-Dom.

    Despite the fact that ENFPs are described as ambiverts, I feel like their presence is usually pretty obvious once they get going. The INFPs I posted in the OP are still somewhat 'stiff' in comparison to actual ENFPs.

    Lol I wasn't saying Ne-heavy INFPs are all potheads, just know that Fiona Apple and Kid Cudi have both been arrested for drug possession and I think Harmony Korine was a junkie. Just an observation

    Yeah, definitely agree. I can seem ENFP-ish at times, but then when I'm around a real ENFP it's so obvious I'm not an ENFP. INFPs are a lot more stiff as you say, good way to describe it.
