    I mean that- cuz until I started talking about these topics with people who study MBTI- I DID NOT realize how this is SUCH A BIG DEAL to so many people. So many people cannot deal with this. I have taken for granted that this is a no brainer for me. And if I AM hurt from being vulnerable, I recover quickly. Like who cares? What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

    Do you think ENFPs have the easiest time being vulnerable than other types? (Please- anyone with an opinion on this- please answer.)

    I feel like we are the MOST OPEN type to a fault!

    You clearly have a problem with ENFPs, but Fe tends to get a lot of hate online so I appreciate you listing some of the good qualities of one of the Fe-doms. I'd make try your list more balanced on both ends though if I were you. Especially if you want it to be taken seriously.

    I disagree with this though. I'm basically looking for a long-term, harmonious relationship right now. Trying to find dates that will hopefully lead to something more. On the flip side, I know EFJs going around college hooking up with random dudes and entering open relationships. I think that "spark" is something most people enjoy, and it's something that can be retained in the long-term if both people in the relationship are willing. It also depends on what people want at the time. I think regarding relationships, ENFJs are generally better at providing stability to the relationship while ENFPs are generally better at providing novelty to the relationship. Maybe that's why I'm attracted to people who seem stable.

    1- More difficulty in defining their lifetime goals, let alone pursuing them...in truth, prefers the thought of the being free to do so without constraints.
    I'm interested in what you mean by lifetime goals here too. Basically my only goal in life is to find the one, get married, build a family with him, and live a happy life together. I'm constantly in pursuit of that goal and I'm always putting in effort when it comes to trying to find someone. I'd consider that pretty much a lifetime goal. If you mean other things like future occupation - they simply aren't as important to the bigger picture I'm aiming for. Although I'm really passionate about becoming a therapist and getting my PhD. I'm just saying, as long as I have a husband and kids in my future I'll be content.

    Confirmed. I don't usually think of the consequences of what I am saying until it's too late. In general, I am not one of the those socially conscientious people because I don't care to make myself look a particular way in front of certain people and then another way in front of another person. I am not very calculating.

    Edit: The ENFP style is different from types. Fe types (I think... could be wrong ...please correct me if I am wrong) tend to let others share a little bit... then the INFJ/ISFJ share a little bit ...until they have had enough exchange and it has to be an equal investment.
    You are so arbitrary.

    So if we suck at Fe so bad-- why are we SO FASCINATED by people and why are we so IN TUNE with them?

    It's wierd.

    Yeah we probably are. Infps are pretty close if not sometimes more in certain ways.

    I know that for me it feels like it's sometimes uncomfortable like in an emotional relationship situation I might show anger before hurt and that feels like I'm being protective of my vulnerability but then I'm always open about the whys etc afterward.

    And probably more so than many other types. I think it comes from having to be real and talk about real things even if they're unpleasant.

    If that makes sense.

    I would like to post a small and tentative comparison on the difference between the ENFJ and ENFP types. I'll just lay the text out, though it should be best read as a table....so all 6 points for the ENFJ type should match the 6 points for ENFP in the same order.

    The distinctions themselves are mostly accurate here, however as others have said, you've falling into the trap of comparing a positive spin on one type with a negative spin on another. You need to compare oranges with oranges before your ideas will have much meaning. Put more thought into why ENFPs do things differently to ENFJs and what benefits can come from a different approach. Your blind-spots in life can be their virtues, and vice-versa.

    I like the ENFJ list for the most part, but I do question number 4. I think both ENFJs and ENFPs are quite likely to question the status quo. The distinction IMO is perhaps that when ENFPs a driven to overhaul things they want to change things more dramatically across a broad range of related ideologies and this often diffuses their energy, which means they're less active in directly inciting change and/or push less assertively (hence why, along with INFPs they're sometimes know as "the advocates"). ENFJs OTOH tend to focus their energy on a more narrowly defined goal, and are more actively and directly involved in making it happen. Just a thought...

    Personally, the thing I've come to discover about ENFXs is just how similar they can be (same goes for ESFJ vs. ESFP too). I think the more you know about MBTI and the better you get at reading people, that previously aching gulf between the types becomes a more of a fine line. I'm often surprised just how sprightly, silly and playful EXFJs can be, and how focussed and deliberate EXFPs can be.

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.
