    I think ENFP's and ISFP's share the same need to be independent and free to act also both share the openmindness. But Ne is very different compared to Se even if Ne-dominant can look like Se-dominant because Se feeds Ne. But Ne doesn't require action as Se does. So, according to that "theory" Se requires sensory feedback whereas Ne can settle with "own thought process" without sensory feedback/information.

    But personally, I like the company of ISFP's because of the reasons I described in the beginning. ISFP's don't force their opinion on others, they do not like to control other people. I really appreciate that in them.

    I agree. I am very confused at the moment because I don't think I'm an extrovert. Like I really, really don't feel that I'm an extrovert IRL no matter how I may come across with my presence here on the forum.

    The reason why I entertain ISFP as a possibility is because I feel more "earthy" and "solid" than some ENFPs I observe on this forum, I feel like I'm more realistic than some INFPs, and generally speaking I think I'm quite in touch with my body and quite sensitive to things like food, sleep, light, and sound for someone who is supposedly an Intuitive. All of this time I was thinking it was because I had strong tertiary Te as an ENFP...could my "earthiness" be because I'm actually an ISFP who uses a lot of Ni for things like literary analysis and understanding people? So I think that "earthiness" to me is most easily explained away by Te or Se.

    ENFPs and ISFPs also share that need for freedom, like someone already mentioned, and my life has been filled with quests for freedom. ENFPs and ISFPs are both called hippies. They're probably two of the "sensual" types, too.

    I totally feel you on this one.

    The ENFP is still more immersed and energetic in ideas, in talking, philosophying somewhat.. It's a stereotype, sure, but a good one (according to me! I mean, granted, stereotypes suck, but I'm going to use them under the assumption that we all know it's not the end of the world if they're stated in simple message board posts.). ISFPs kind of have a quieter wisdom in comparison.. I think they can be very immersed in action too.. and very specialized at certain things they do.. while an ENFP loves being well rounded and even in certain actions, they are coming at it from some giddy, conceptual point of view. Not simply "as it is". I'm not going to explain what I mean though, because I feel particularly lazy and want to move on.

    Lastly, Ne will and can feel it has an opinion in just about anything it's researched -and draw connections to new things through that too.. while Se enforces an experiential standard. Their interest drops if tangible connections aren't made (that's not bad or anything.. although rude Se types - ESFPs mostly - sometimes try to cover up their insecurity and shoot people down if conversations get too far out of their realm of experience. They are the people who insult you with: "Stop trying to talk like 'smart people'". Or "You think too much." ISFPs aren't that rude, but kind of blank and pleasant in these moments. "Uh.. cool.")

    I still don't know what those terms really mean.
