There's nothing quite like coming home after hanging out with other friends to an ENFP roommate talking about how you can craft your own porno name using your middle name and the name of the street where you grew up. After that part of the conversation, I couldn't help but stay up 'till midnight discussing
Wrong! It's your childhood pet's name and the street you grew up on!
I don't know if I'd give up being an INTP given the choice, but I do think ENFPs and INFJs are the best types (and probably the most logical in terms of living life).
Highly subjective, of course.
INxJ. Try it. Still have compassion for folks at times but have the INTJ strategy, focus, and efficiency, yet get that perfecionist draw from the INFJ side to improve your social EQ and other knowledge related to social skills. I just stay on the T side more but its low.
Being an ENFP is a mixed blessing. Sometimes I wish I wasn't. I wish I had an off-button. I wish I could tone down the intensity. I wish I could get to work on time. I wish I cared about getting to work on time. Yeah, I wanna throw a pity party.
This thread is for us ENFPs, but if other types wanna drop in words of empathy or encouragement, I won't bite them... hard.
P.S. FUBU stands for For Us By Us (I think).
Well, I can understand how hard it must be with all the pressure on you, not feeling like you can live up to what you need to live up to. And it's probably uncomfortable and embarrassing at times. I understand why you'd want things to be easier for you.
But what I would suggest to you is that you try harder to appreciate how you are. Perhaps consider taking a job with more flexible hours or something, going to places where people tend to be intense... finding friends who don't mind it. I think you're better off trying to fit your life around who you are than chastising yourself for not being who you think you should be. I mean, would you really want to change yourself? Of course, I can't say I've never done anything like this to myself, but I'm pretty sure it's still good advice.
Sorry it's been hard on you so far. I hope you have better luck later on.
