To dispense with the pleasantries, I am a full-blooded ENFJ, no doubt about it. I live in Texas and am a recent grad, and I love to write...absolutely love to. In fact, Cronkle's introduction: "Be prepared for semicolons left and rights and dashes from here to there." Grammatically correct ones, of course.
I've been lurking around your NF board for a number of months now curiously reading all the happening and laughing quite a bit. I've been waiting for the right time to make an inroad into the discussion. Now seems the best, more than ever.
That said, I've recently discovered MBTI and the ENFJ label certainly fits. I'm very much a Feeler and curiously extraverted, although I could probably have been confused as a INFJ as a kid. That and I do work off a great deal with constructs and getting things "settled" or some varied semblance of being settled. I also love words, all types and varieties. I love to discover new ones and new ways to put them together to emote a feeling. That and I love giving "roadmaps" to people!
I feel as though I do want to affect change in others and often try to seek the most harmonious of routes available at the time. And I also love to share on and on when I feel the environment and situation is safe. (So pardon the long-winded monologue...)
I also love music, most types but especially sentimental type stuff and ones with grand vistas (almost to where you can see the music unfold). That said, I don't like rap or heavy metal :steam: or anything of that sort. Country, jazz, classical, etc. all do apply to me though. I think music is an important aspect to life and mustn't be ignored. And I think we should all dance a little more...
As I've stated before, I love words and music so I find new ways to express myself in many different ways, most of which include blogs and poetry (which I've discovered more recently). If it were up to me I would only write, hopefully for the betterment of others (and myself). I also see my writing (which is always under revision) through the medium of the spoken word. The main question I ask is: "Does it sound right?" So much writing has horrible pacing. That's why I like words AND music...it's all about pacing and emotion to it.
And as you can tell from my username, I am also full-blooded Catholic. All the way. Suffice to say I find great comfort and peace in working with others through this prism. To me it invigorates life, it gives it fuller meaning, and it provides something of an understanding that I cannot experience elsewhere. And so, my well thankfully doesn't run dry. For me, in typical ENFJ-fashion, this experience and all experiences are effectively summed up in the St. Thomas More quote given below: "In the end it is not a matter of reason; it is a matter of love."
I find it better to reach out to people where they are as they are and let progress be made from that rather than issuing ultimatums which never, never work.
I've come here to learn a little more, share a little more, and to give a little more in this crazy world of ours. Hopefully we can make it a more joyous one and do so in an upbeat and generous manner.
