    Default ENFP Newbie says hello and feels like a dork for doing so...

    Hi everyone, I've avoided joining forums like this because I feel like a dork (is this a common ENFP trait?) but have been taking personality tests since high school (for student leadership..another common ENFP trait?) and on-line ever since.

    Growing older -- let's just say I'm not quite 30 but long past 20 -- I'm now more than interested in just myself. Now I'm interested in OTHER people and their personalities and ESPECIALLY how types interact...with me.



    I'm also really interested to see the reality behind typing and hear from other people about their types and their thoughts on other types...like mine.



    So I look forward to this forum!

    Hi, welcome. I'm actually not a very active poster here at all, but I post every now and then. I was formerly a loyalist on another MBTI dedicated forum but I recently left within a tirade of fervor and frustration. I might be going back soon though. Anyway, I find that topics here are often a little too active and thus are pretty intimidating to join in as far as posting goes. I hope you have fun with it though; it shouldn't be that difficult if you are as token ENFP as you say.

    Hi mate. Welcome to the board! ENFPs are some of my favourite people.

    I suspect those are both of the above traits are common to ENFPs. Most ENFPs I know are natural leaders, usually without trying to be. It's not that they want the authority or prestige of being a leader so much as that they just tend to have too much influence on people to not be leaders. They are often forced into positions of leadership during high-school by teachers who want them in the tent pissing out rather than outside the tent pissing in. They seem to enjoy it until the conflict comes.

    Re the dork-fears, the ENFPs I know have a sublime sense of the dorkish. They are almost definitive consultants for what's cool (or rather, what will soon be cool) and what's not. Often the things they recognize as cool will not be recognized as such by the SJs (God love em) for quite some time. They are natural trend-spotters. Having said that, ENFPs are definitely not slaves to fashion or (more importantly) to group opinion. As you have demonstrated, just because they are aware of what's dorky doesn't mean they won't do it.

    Hello, CzeCze. Welcome to MBTI Central. Good to hear that you're so interested in this, I'd like to hear your observations as well (you've probably made more of them, being an Extravert). I don't know many ENFP's, I always assumed they were kind of ditsy based on the type descriptions, but some of the ones I've seen on the forums have proven to be a bit more curious, intelligent, and interested in things than I would have thought.
