    We're very eager to share our ideas about things, however if you ask us to share personal details about ourselves I can see us becoming generally uneasy, since it's a subject we don't really pay any attention to.
    Yeah, I noticed the switch, but I often confuse the two... personal details and ideas. We get very deep very quickly, so I think I blurted out something like, "Pick a superficial topic and I can talk about it instead." I was of course trying to make the situation less awkward for him and to take the pressure off... haha.

    We did change the subject, but I found that we did not stay there very long. And he joked about how "yeah, this is a really superficial topic" when we were talking about seeking truth or something.

    Thing is, if we could stay on those shallower topics with ease, I would almost prefer it because it feels safer to me. It gets pretty intense whether I force it (which doesn't really happen) or not and I don't know how to stop it.

    This is definitely likely to make the situation awkward. We are uneasy when it comes to providing ideas or setting the course of an exchange. I feel that it becomes a burden to me in order to find a topic that you will find pleasing to talk about as well, will make me a tad uncomfortable and unsure of myself, and would much rather you offer the topic. Also, what is your example of a superficial topic? I typically don't mind discussing any topic as long as I think you will enjoy what I have to say.

    Once again, the definition of your superficial topic would help. Is it about personal preferences in clothing, music or entertainment? Latest celebrity gossip? You could be inadvertently pushing a topic he really dislikes so it makes sense he would shut down.

    Oh, it did make it awkward, but I fixed it. HA! I started talking about the Eagles making the playoffs and suddenly we were golden.

    It's just odd to me how much I value what he says. I don't know if it's because he places a high value what he says (so I see that and follow in suit) or if it's something else. Or maybe I am just not used to someone being so careful with what they share, so I feel special that he chooses to share with me. It's kind of nice, even though it can be frustrating (feeling like the vulnerable one most of the time).

    I'd like to ask ENFPs if they think they take well to unadulterated evaluation (read : critical assessments = 'criticism') ?

    Boo! I'm a Giants fan. And completely terrified of facing you in the playoffs. I hope you get knocked off.

    This is very important, and I think very insightful Like I said, we love our ideas. We think our ideas make up so much of ourselves. When we share our ideas, we are sharing something that we have invested considerable energy, time, and thought in creating, molding, perfecting, reflecting, and harboring them. Our ideas, and even more importantly, their acceptance and ability to interest and intrigue others is something we love. If he shares his ideas with you, it is a great compliment to you.

    Of course not, but I pretend to because I know oversensitivity irks you so. Can't fool the INTP though. You guys just know. "Aww look. You are offended. So very sad sipping your soda."

    I was actually thinking about that today. I think I may just accept the criticism from now on and admit defeat. Truly, I have been DEEPLY WOUNDED by your judgments of me. Babam. And then, bounce back and laugh at myself for being so ridiculous.

    are you asking if enfp's like criticism? or do we think you do?

    because...no...and no

    edit...i can just speak for myself but...NO!
