    Default Where in the world do you live happily as an NF?

    I'm currently reading a book "Where in the world do I belong?" by Brent Massey. Anyone read it?

    To be short the author has labelled different countries with a personalitytype. My country, Sweden, is apparently the strongest Sensing country (SJ) in the world! Well, I wasn't surprised..and that might explain why I, with my 100% N-score, feel quite misunderstood here.

    The book points out Brazil, Ireland, Italy, Spain amonig others to be ENFP-cultures. Does anyone have any experiences? USA is said to be ESTJ, but since it's a huge continent with so many states it must differ widely between different areas? How's it where you people live?

    Trying to find a country or area where there are more NF:s and NT:s ..but this book is probably a huge generalisation...

    Why would you want to live somewhere that you're just part of the crowd? Enjoy being unique and make your own mark! I think you could live happily as an NF anywhere.

    Well, maybe not inside a bank. But any country for sure.

    You can live in Carrboro, NC happily as a liberal NF.

    I think that many places around the equator are good places for NFs.

    Brazil seems to be very SP to me. Rio, perfect beach bodies, Carnival, samba, night life?

    I agree, people of all types are everywhere. What about starting a FaceBook account or other social group for Swedish ENFPs? Network, baby.

    Hehe, I guess you live somewhere where you're not controlled by the big "JANTELAW"? For those of you not familiar with it, it says "You shall not think that you are someone or mean something". Sweden is ruled by that invisible law.. So being unique here is a lonely, lonely job and noone wants to do it . Sorry for the negativity, but you're all welcome to visit and see for yourselves! Hmm...I'm obviously not very patriotic

    But yes, guess I shouldn't believe this book too much since it doesn't really capture reality..

    Thanks for the tip . Don't mean to be rude against Scandinavia (saw your dad was from up here?), it has a few great things to offer too!

    Eh, too many tropical storms.

    I'm doing alright in Calgary, AB; I'd probably be happier further up into the mountains though. Canmore, Banff, and Lake Louise come to my mind.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.
