    Dude, no offence, but an INFP would be much less likely to post these kinds of threads, you NEED feedback and you aren't afraid to ask (no judgement, I totally relate. I am still trying to rein this tendency in). I also think you're kind of in an awkward depressing stage of your life, which makes it hard to relate to the ENFP caricature you see everywhere. From what I can tell, you've been going through a lot.

    Socially, it took me a long time to figure out how to be likeable, because I had no control of my Ne, and not a lot of experience to guide me either. I basically had no friends until late high school, and even still, I've only really come into my own socially over the last few years (I'm 23). When I was 10, I was too afraid to interact with others (they thought I was a freak), so I used to just sit hide up a tree during recess and read. Some people still find me "weird", or "too much" sometimes, but most people really like me. Even though I don't always feel like a little ball of sunshine, a lot of people I encounter tell me I brighten their day. I think it takes a while for us to figure out how to use our Ne properly.

    Oh and for the record, I consider myself to be socially introverted (with occasional outbursts), and I tend to only get very loud and excited when I'm in Ne-Fi hyperdrive, so to speak.

    Thank you everybody!

    I am now pretty sure I am just an ENFP guy with a lot on his plate. I hope things improve.

    As an INFP I want to add that ENFPs are definitely not the only ones who can go into overdrive with Ne or makes others uncomfortable due to excessive or excessively exuberant Ne. IME INFP's do generally tend to be calmer overall as well as less ?bouncy? from one topic to another very quickly.

    I am introverted with waves of enthusiasm, but that doesnt make me too extroverted. When in doubt, I just have to remember: I go to others to express ideas, thoughts, and emotions. In the end, I feel content, because I was able to 'extrovert' my mind.

    Thank you for posting this. I'm an ENFP but I don't match the description at all. I've never been able to completely let my personality loose though.

    Yup. That's one big difference between ENFP and INFP or between INFP and xSxJ.

    INFPs do of course. Just not in the same fashion.
    We just don't actively "welcome" other people's opinions on us, analysis and definition of us, simply because we're just not open to discussion on ourselves as most of the time, we already firmly believe "nobody will get me and that's fine". Being unidentifiable is a part of our identity. Not always a good thing though.
