    My Ni can come up with a Detailed and Fantastic Life Plan in two minutes... but then I was consider my "after-thoughts of figuring out how to make teh scheme plausable" for probably weeks on end. I think I mentioned somewhere else that I daydream 95% of the time. By this i mean I try to flesh out plausible ways to make my Ni dreams possible. And lots of that time is examining the pros/cons/likelihood/other people's likely reactions/etc. I hadn't thought of the examination process as Ni. I always thought the initial crazy plan was Ni and... I don't know what I considered the rest of it as.

    I wasn't specific because it doesn't apply specifically. There is a tendency in online discussions for examination of Ni to evolve in certain directions. I was mostly just providing information on a "need to know basis" like a footnote. Sometimes statements can be vaguely relevant, if that makes any sense. There is even a remote possibility I got this mixed up with another thread. I have been dog tired lately. I thought something was said about snap judgments - which if using Ni aren't as quick and definite as some people might interpret.

    Here are some random questions for you ENFJs:

    How do you read people's eyes? What can you tell about people based on how they look at you? Is it a silent way that someone tells you their life story?

    What do you think about people who are introverted, yet wear vivid colors? Does this baffle you, give you insight, etc?

    I've had an ENFJ stop after speaking to a group (that I was in) and look at me intently with her head tilted to the side. Another time, she did this and half smiled. Both times I was laughing at a joke she had made (as was the whole group). It was like she was taking a mental note of something...?

    What do you think of people who have trouble making friends or seem nervous in social situations (but are nice to people who approach them and try to help when they see someone needs something)?

    What traits/characteristics do you respect the most?

    What "wins you over"?

    What specifically sparks your curiosity?

    I think this may be one of the only good (conscious) uses of Ni. Jaye is always telling me that I can sniff out a liar, that my hackles go up automatically when dealing with someone we can't trust (which of course makes me look difficult and cranky, but I can't help it!). I know when someone's shucking and jiving, and even if I don't catch on immediately, I *will* catch on.

    I once met a perfectly nice guy, a friend of a friend, and we hit it off (as friends). I knew there was something amiss with him so I just sat there silently "reading" him. I felt this aura (for lack of a batter word) of violence on him, but not that *he* was violent. I wasn't afraid of him. I finally asked him what it was about, and he broke down, told me everything, said he had no intention of ever telling until I brought it up.

    Can others not see the weight of time and violence/sadness in peoples' eyes? It's like old houses - they radiate the energy of the people who'd been there, building up over time.

    What do you think about people who are introverted, yet wear vivid colors? Does this baffle you, give you insight, etc?
    A lot of introverts are a condensed flame. They shutter their body energy inside themselves until something prompts it to move outward. I think the subtle cues they give off are way more telling than the "announcements" they may make.

    I've had an ENFJ stop after speaking to a group (that I was in) and look at me intently with her head tilted to the side. Another time, she did this and half smiled.

    Sounds like she likes ladybugs!

    I try to help smooth the way if I can, break the ice. We're all mortified by *something* so having a little hand at a weak point is certainly appreciated. Trouble is, I can be so intense and overpowering sometimes, I think I may frighten some Is. I'm working on that!

    What traits/characteristics do you respect the most?
    Respect, itself. Showing respect or good breeding, even when you're surrounded by philistines.

    Do you mean that he had been a victim of/experienced violence and was showing sadness in his eyes as a result?

    That's an excellent analogy! I never thought of it that way but that's exactly what it's like. You'd be amazed how many people are so oblivious to things like that.

    Good point. Don't worry, I'm sure they're not frightened once they get used to your style. At least, that's the case with me. Once I know how much intensity to expect from a person (how they operate), I go from to .


    I love your answers and would be interested to hear from more ENFJs. This is fascinating!

    One of my friends is an ENFJ and I don't mean to be kind of negative, at all..but she's always asking me if I alright, and she can be a little nosy at times..and kind of pushy..which I don't mind too much, but sometimes, I feel sort of annoyed, but she's a good soul and I love her all the same.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    The eyes are a powerful thing, you can see into the soul of the other person, but I rather look at their whole body lenguage and facial expresions. You can see how a person feel in their life just by staring at a person's facial expresion when they are not trying to express something. For example I saw my aunt a few years ago and I saw that most of the time she looked sad eventhough she wasn't trying to express any emotions at the time when I was looking at her.

    Silly, intorverts.

    She was probably perplexed as to why you find her corny jokes funny.

    The hardset thing for most people to do I guess its just "break the ice" but meeting new people to be your friends is really not what is important. I have a lot of acquaintances but I have just a few true friends. Its not how many friends you have that matters but the quality of their friendship to you, I learned that a while ago. Not everyone is worth being your friend and I even had to "drop" some friends, heck I even had to tell that to one of them that we could no longer be friends because of their values. I would say to not worry about actually trying to make friends per say, instead look for someone who is actually worth your friendship, a lot of people will always walk into your life.

    What traits/characteristics do you respect the most?
    Loyalty, is the single most important trait/characteristic that I look for in any type of relatinship. Than followed by trust, if you are not loyal and I cannot trust you, I am sorry we could never be friends.

    What "wins you over"?
    This question is too broad, win me over in what sense?

    What specifically sparks your curiosity?
    When you are telling/showing me somehing I had never seen before and is entertaining or full of knowledge.

    I find myself reading other person's body lenguage to see what is up with them. Women are also 6 times better at reading body lenguage than men are so that is a clear advantege you have as well.

    So true!

    Yep, we are quite silly...and we like it that way (at least I do)!

    What can I say? I am easily amused...*pops bubblewrap*


    This question is too broad, win me over in what sense?
    If you don't know a person very well and aren't sure what your opinion is of them yet, what is something they could do/say that would almost instantly make you think positively of or love them? Or if you are still keeping your guard up around someone, what is something they could do/say to automatically cause you to let your guard down?

    Look someone actually finds us fascinating. I feel like such a guinea pig.
    You are indeed a guinea pig...*plots evil things* Muahahahahaha!
