    This is true. I do not know about the other ENFPs, but I am totally not the party gal, social butterfly kind of girl. That could be because my functions are very balanced, so I am not overly E, overly N, overly F, or overly P. My functions balance each other out, which means I am not an oh-my-god-I-have-never-seen-such-an-extroverted-party-girl-in-all-my-life kind of person. Or it could be that most ENFPs are like that.

    My extroversion really shows itself when I am discussing with interesting folks and when I love the topic. After 8-12 hours of teaching, I am bouncing off the walls (totally extroverted, in other words). If I discuss something about which I am very passionate, I will also be lively, crazy and totally engaged - I can talk for hours, and the more I talk, the more fun it is (I will stay up til 5 a.m. talking if I have a good discussion partner and a good topic). Also, if you engage my imagination, I can tell crazy-ass stories. I am also the kind of person who will randomly aim her baby-blue umbrella in a firing position (like a rifle) towards people who drive too fast on a road in a residential area and scare the shit out of them. Things like that. Not exactly your introverted personality.

    However, a day of teaching unmotivated, disinterested folks will drive me into quiet seething - I BOIL INSIDE. :steam: Also, talking about boring, superficial nonsense makes me feel like or :horor:.

    I'm also usually quieter around people I know will not appreciate my extroverted, crazy nature. So I am quiet at first so I can suss out whether or not it is appropriate. I can "play" any type, really. So if I am around pole-up-the-butt academics, I will also act like a pole-up-the-butt academic. If I am around people who love to be silly and have fun, I will act like my "normal" self. If people are really into their sensing sides, I will try to adapt. Or thinkers - I will use my Te, though not as well as they do, obviously. With really competitive people, I will turn out to be the most competitive, perfectionistic person; among positive, friendly people, I am optimistic.

    This can really turn against me if I am in a situation where I am not comfy. For example, I joined a political group in college, but they did more drinking than political discussion. Usual ranting and raving. Okay, I can rant and rave pretty well, so I had that down pat, but TRY TO GET ME TO BE THE PARTY GAL??? Gahhhh, I was so uncomfortable that I ended up getting really soused one night (although that was not my intention or my desire). So when I have to be the ESFP/ESTP kind of gal...nahhhh, that does not work, sorry folks.

    For example, in the States I was quite "introverted" because I just did not "click" with the people, and it just did not "fit." No one had my interests; people did not appreciate my humor; people were put off by my directness; people were too superficial. So go to parties??? HELL NO!!!!!!!!! I'd rather be alone than be with people who do not help me to develop (my Te side?!).

    On the other hand, if people talk about their feelings, experiences, and thoughts/ideas, I'm all in. I'm game. That's what I like to talk about, along with history, philosophy, religion, politics, economy (in a socio-political discussion), relationships, feelings, psychology, personal development - THINGS THAT MATTER.

    But please, do not bore me with which actress is sleeping with what actor. Or the weather. Or who is dating whom. Or who put on weight. Or the local gossip (unless it involves me or I can learn about people or develop in some way). Dude, I don't care, and don't bother. Don't DON'T (oh god please DON'T) talk about sports - especially golf or football. Give them all a ball. Then they do not have to fight about it.

    'Course, I might just be a "weird" (i.e. unusual) ENFP. But that is my input.

    A couple of reasons

    1. don't want to scare them off
    2. don't want them to not return the feelings at the same strength I have them.

    I think ENFP's (from my experience with myself ) comes off a lot bolder and more articulate than it really is. I really just kind of play off the other person.
    YES!!! I have learned this the hard way. Sort of.

    It's not cute. I HATE cats. I once had a dream that I bit into a cat like a hamburger. I can say that because this is an online forum so no one can put me away for it.

    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Opposites attract? I like ENFPs is because they sort of understand my weird nature. And they can put up with me when I have one of those days. My ENFP friend and I had some what of a long term crush on one another. He liked playing hard-to-get (which of course got on my nerves). He always tried to impress me also. I have to say that's flatering. But it didn't work out. Usually he was self-centered, and that was a turn-off.
