    Default ISFPs/ENFPS

    Ne indicates ENTPs and ENFP are more alike. I beg to differ. I think in action, in mannerisms, and in lifestyle, ENFPs are more likely to be comparable to ISFPs.

    What do you think?

    I agree that the actions, mannerisms, and lifestyle are very similar, but cognitively speaking we're completely different.

    There are certainly good times to be had between ENFPs and ISFPs, but communication/understanding gap is HUGE, in my experience. (due to the S/N divide, I think.)


    Yeah, and although ENTPs and ENFPs both use the same dominant function, it doesn't exactly seem like magical chemistry between the two either (in my experience).


    ****And I realize, of course, that experience is kind of shaky when you're not really sure what people's types are, but .....you know--- Just throwin in my two cents.

    You think it's easier when you know the type of another person? Or your just more aware of the differences that might be inherit.

    it's interesting you say that...but why do you say it? do you know people of that type that you feel are more similar to you than other entps that you know? and...i wonder if it would have more to do with the strength of your preferences...are you low on e/i and balanced on s/n ? or...are you talking about reading the isfp profile and finding that it's very similar to the enfp one...or...are you going by certain famous people that it's hard to type...or that people seem to confuse between those two?

    IME I'm pretty similar to ENFP males in ways and pretty different in other ways. I feel a disconnect from ENFP females. A lot of how we're different seems to be the Se vs the Ne perspective; but I do like the Ne perspective.

    I noticed a few days ago how much I sound like the ISFP profile. I am convinced I am an N, but I still relate to ISFPs.

    Their function order is Fi> Se> Ni> Te

    My Fi is almost tied with my Ne. I also have decent Se, High Ni and decent Te. So maybe that is why I relate to them.

    Please excuse the long drawn out ramble above.
    I have to hear what I've said before I know what I think.

    I've been trying to elaborate on this for an hour now, and it's hard to do it without relying on stereotypes.

    Maybe I'll try again later.

    I get that feeling too but in theory it doesn't really makes sense but it's there, interesting.

    I know an enfp in real life, similar interests and stuff. Different temperament.
