    Don't let yourself be fooled by him.

    Openness in sex isn't type related, and even if it was, I know a lot of INFPs who are very opened in this area, including myself. Perhaps we don't show it so 'publicly' as ENFPs, but in private... it's whole another story

    Well, you're just more comfortable than most INFPs with it.

    I never said you couldn't be INFP and comfortable with sexuality. They just show a trend toward awkwardness with it (at least the females; I can't really comment on the males) because many of them are very wrapped up in lofty romantic ideals and have trouble relaxing...at least in my limited experience with them.

    And ISFJs, well, as Edgar says--missionary in the dark ONLY!
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I've actually read the sexual descriptions of ENFP and I match that more closely.

    I'm also not "behind the scenes" and I don't communicate indirectly.

    I showed it publically. More than most people.

    All the ISFJs I've been with (3) were anything but "restrained" during sex. But they did have a restrained attitude towards it when they were not doing it. I guess they just let themselves go at the right moment.

    I was in a relationship once - this has been a while back - with a really nice guy who was terrible in bed, very passive. He also didn't like to debate with me, and I was annoyed by how often he agreed with me, not even necessarily because he agreed but because he just didn't want the conflict. He bored me to death.

    I thought for a while he was an INFJ. He might have been an ISFJ.

    Aren't you supposed to have a degree in English or something?

    Why? Because I misspelled publicly? Or because I use sentence fragments on the Intertardz?

    First of all, I am an English major. I didn't go to college straight out of high school. I am just now going to be a senior in January.

    Secondly, I am a literature major, that does not imply that I give a shit about perfect spelling and grammar. If anything, literature is reading, analysis, and creative writing.

    Third, my AP certified teacher (who went on to get her Masters and work at a university) for English in high school sometimes had problems with spelling. So even if I already had my English degree, it wouldn't necessarily guarantee that I am obsessed with grammar or perfect with spelling.

    You misunderstand what a literature degree is.

    Hmm... If you identify with ENFP more, I'd say go with it. But I'm not sure if comparing INFPs and ENFPs attitudes towards sex are an effective way of deciding it Type is a fairly loose category after all. It's true that a lot of ENFP females I know are very "openly open" about their sexuality, but certainly not all of them, and it doesn't mean that every single INFP is a prude or something...

    I don't mean to be impertinent, but how old were they?
