    Default ENFJ vs. ENFP - Notes

    Hi all,

    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.


    ENFJ

    1- More able to clearly identify and pursue a life-long project.

    2- Orchestrates / minds what is said, so as to not damage other people's pride / vanity / self-esteem / feelings.

    3- When looking out for solutions, prefers one that is most convenient and simple to all envolved.

    4- Very likely to observe social regulations and traditions without too much thought on overhauling or questioning them.

    5- Less prone to acting without consultation or thinking about long-term consequences, especially when it concerns people.

    6- More interested and more energized by being in a long-term, harmonious relationship (romantic and non-romantic alike).



    ENFP

    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.

    2- Tends to communicate with «no filter», meaning that, although sensitive, they may unwittingly hurt people when enthusiastically pursuing attractive ideas / lines of thought.

    3-Prefers to look for unique solutions, no matter how erratically, and much prefers to leave their implementing to others.

    4-Much less willing to compromise / be obliged by social regulations and conventions if their visions and feelings are at stake.

    5-Prone to acting without consultation and with little regard to long-term consequences...likely to be caught with pants down again and again...usually apologizes profusely afterwards, but may struggle to keep resolution.

    6-Prefers to explore in relationships, often prefers the spark of the new ones to the steadfastness of old ones...easily bored.

    Your view of ENFPs needs work.

    Yeah, I'm an Fe user, and I was also like, "Damn, that's lopsided."

    to the ENFPs and their awesome talents and insights

    In an attempt to not fully scare the newb off though...

    It's normal to prefer your view on life - that's why they are your preferences and that is after all what MBTI is for - to figure out how your preferences work.

    After that, it can help us understand why others would have other preferences and how they work. I'd say our newb is in the right place for stage two

    So, @LUBUS, grab a chair, join us on here and discover the wonderful world of the ENFP...just for starters

    I'd recommend the archive for such epic battle threads as Fe vs Fi and Why do you hate an ENFP as well as Why do you love an ENFP.

    Bring a change of underwear though...you're going to need it. The change of mindset will be courtesy of us, ENFPs of Typec

    If you can still take more after that...PM me, and I'll arrange you a session with some very very persuasive and impressive ENFPs on here.

    Lastly, something tells me you'd be epic to sing the praises of ENFJs everywhere and that type is certainly in need of some love on here. So knock yourself out making a thread on that. I'd look forward to it.

    Oh...and welcome to TypeC

    This thread is calling number 5 on both sides into serious question.

    Yeah, not the most balanced list. I know I've put biased stuff out there. It can be hard to see the other side of things sometimes. There are lots of people way better than me at understanding functions and typology, but I'm gonna try to get some more balanced comparisons to add to the discussion.

    Seemed okay enough to me. Though I would argue the last point for ENFPs. I think just about everyone likes the spark of a new relationship--even when looking back at it fondly in the present of a good one.

    Holy mackerel! The OP is tremendously biased against ENFPs. @LUBUS did it ever occur to you that ENFPs are just different than ENFJs. Different, not lesser.
