    Wouldn't even know how to go about picking a male ENFJ, but I think female ENFJs tend to have "match-maker" written all over them. ESFJs do too, I guess. So that chick in Pride and Prejudice (I forget her name) or any of her "remake" contemporary analogues (eg Alicia Silverstone in Clueless) are pretty good candidates. For starters.

    They tend to be caring, charismatic people-pleasers. Seem to chide themselves (from what I've seen) for being neither impulsive nor deliberative enough. Often the unacknowledged nexus of friendship webs. Hmm, badly mixed metaphor there. Speaking of which

    I've heard of Lois from Family Guy typed as ENFJ.

    I have seen very few fictional representations of ENFJs that I can readily identify as ENFJs. Reasons?

    1. Some characters people identify as ENFP are really ENFJ...sometimes Ne+Fi looks like Fe and I think that people assume someone being silly and random is ENFP. Some ENFJs come across as their mirror INFP or even ENTJ.

    2. An ENFJ in negative Fe mode, i.e. actively disconnecting from other people comes across as T. Since Fe is a primarily social function, why wouldn't an ENFJ know how to turn it on and off? It happens more often than you think. If an ENFJ is like this you'd have to scrutinize their behavior and see if they're oblivious to how they're pissing people off or if it seems like it's being done on purpose.

    3. Even though they think they do, people don't know what the fuck Fe looks like in real life unless it's very stereotypical bossy/overbearing Fe or nurturer/caretaker Fe.

    When I say the ENFJs are blendable, I really mean they are. I've wondered why I can't identify ENFJs on TV, books, and movies. Evidently I can't find my own type.

    There are two characters I think are ENFJ.

    Evelyn from The Shape of Things. I find her character to be very dynamic and compelling. I'll have to think about why.

    Madeline White from Inside Man. I really liked Madeline's character because she's so smooth and glided in and out of situations so easily and knowing how to exert just the right amount of pressure, when to turn it up and down and where to place it. She's a power broker, she knows people to put people in touch with other people. Hopefully this is not wishful thinking on my part, but I can relate.

    I have nothing but what I've written into fictional form. It's difficult to see an ENFJ unless they're doing what comes naturally - interacting with people. We tend to show ourselves when we're striking fire off others.

    I could post something to my blog so this thread won't get cluttered?

    Why do you say that?

    ugh, I'm so inadequate, I never heard of either.

    Yeah, but take INTPs: the absent-minded professor. It's a pretty easy stereotype.

    Is there a comparable one for ENFJs?

    INTPs point at Einstein, what do ENFJs point to?
