And I'm not trying to be type-discriminatory, but have found a serious correlation between how ENFJs really spark my innards and set me free and excited and me being happy. So I'm wondering if I should try to figure out the ENFJ to the best of my abilities in case a new one comes along that I'm interested in.)

    ENFJ topic: how do you feel about music. Discuss.

    I can not live without music. I can not imagine life without it. I have it on constantly. I am a school teacher and all the teachers and children know where to go either to hear/borrow or ask about music. I love just about every type of music and it touches me deeply (both music and lyrics)

    Default hey all!

    I can't tell if I'm an INFJ or and ENFJ. I've taken Myer Briggs many times. I always get NFJ. But I and E vary depending on when I take it!

    How do I find out?

    After reading the majority of your posts, I am beginning to think I am an I. I really don't have the many friends, and don't think I am really that charming either! Hehe.

    Hi there Charizmatic. I always score close on the i/e scale but I'm definately an e. because my e/i is fairly balanced and because of what I do for a living and because I was raised by two i's I think I show my e side very well. it was my leaning as a child (e) but as i grew older my i side definately came out. The older I get the stronger it grows. I have many acquaintances but far fewer friends. My lifelong rocking chair friends I can count on one hand....well maybe a hand and a half.

    Again welcome to the group and regardless of whether you're an i or an e we'd love to hear more from you.

    read a bunch of the descriptions. google and read between teh two; you'll self-identify eventually.

    everyone seems to agree that the murraystate descriptions are really well done.

    Hi Usehername and Littlelostnf!

    I'm pretty sure I've read those descriptions before- and I think I am pretty in the middle on the E/I scale. I would probably call myself a shy ENFJ or 'people centric' INFJ! I feel the need to have many relationships, however I do like to spend time to myself also. I am not fully open to people I know, but once I know and like someone I am extremely open and get close to them extremely quickly. People generally like me, and I often give off the 'sweet' persona because I am pretty nice to everyone, but people that know me well, say that I much more 'assertive' than people would give me credit for. My interests lie in psychology (my major) and the arts ( I write creatively in my spare time/ joined dance class). I would say I am very much a dreamer. I feel that I am transitioning from an I to an E as I grow older, yet still, most of the thinking goes on in my head. Like many have mentioned here, there is an extremely strong need to [I]help[I] others and a kind of guilt that comes along with it when I have an opportunity and I somehow miss it.

    Interesting forum!

    Oh, I have a question.

    Are you E/INFJ's competitive?

    I have to say I am very similar when it comes to reading/movies/music. I "feel" it very deeply. I've cried over many books!:rolli:

    Hmmm I've been told (by one person..seriously and their opinion mattered to me) that I am. I don't think that I am. I like to play and of course I like to win but not to the exclusion of all else. When I compare myself to a friend and my cousin I'm not at all (if I look at how competitive they are) I know when I play Taboo I am the worse...anything else however I just like to play the game. Doesn't everyone have that streak somewhere in them? I have one friend who really really doesn't care. She's an ENFP. I know another ENFP who told me I like to win. I can't stand to lose. So there you go. Same type totally dif views on the outcome of winning.

    Books are the worst. I've embrassased myself crying over books. Movies I will cry occasionally but I really have to feel it, not feel as if I were being manipulated by the movie (extend scene here so audience has time to wipe tears away)
