    Hi!

    ESFP and ENFP can definitely look similar in some ways (both have loads of energy, both are big talkers for example) but the distinction is that ESFP is Se dominant (so action oriented I would say) when ENFP is Ne dominant (so connecting stuff, seeing patterns and reading between the lines).

    Do you prefer big picture thinking (ENFP) or more into doing things (ESFP)? ESFP's I know love to do favors for other people. They also love to perform (even if some ENFP's do love it too).

    I suggest you do the functions test and read the descriptions of both ESFP (here is one and here is another one) and ENFP (here is one and here is another one ) and made up your mind which seems more best fit type for you.

    ENFPs worse fault tends to be procrastination.

    Not sure about ENTPs.

    There's a forum here called What's My Type where you can ask people to help you out with that.

    Oops. Welcome to the forum.

    How much do you like to debate? ENTPs loves doing that

    Hello, Kl33. Welcome to MBTI Central. Feel free to ask any questions you may have about MBTI or general psychology.

    I think it's pretty easy to tell an ENFP from an ENTP. How do you usually read communication... do you typically try to look for and respond to the meanings/implications of what they've actually said, or do you most often try to read for subtle cues and guess at their motive for saying it and respond to that? I think ENTP's do the first one most often, and ENFP's the second one most often, although I think to some degree they can both do either.

    Welcome!

    I'm an ENTP who occasionally scores ENFP on certain MBTI tests. I'm certain that I am ENTP though. ENTP and ENFP are alike in a lot of ways, but one way that I've found that they are different is where their inspiration comes from. ENFP's inspiration ulitimately comes from their desire to express their personality or identity. ENTP's inspiration ultimately comes from the ideas that they have. It's a distinction that can be hard to notice from an outsider's perspective, but can be useful for a person determining their own type.

    For example among all of my friends one of my more unusual traits is that I don't decorate my walls at all. I have no paintings, posters, pictures, etc... on them. I don't think you'd ever find this at an ENFP's place of residence, because they'd want to express their personality. On the other hand I often imagine different plays, movies, books, comic books, etc... that I would tell stories in, and these stories are always a reflection of some idea or principal that I want to express. These ideas don't necessarily have anything to do with my personality or identity, but an ENFP writing would want to personalize their writings more. I hope you can see the distinction I am trying to make.

    ENTP's can be really horrible procrastinators too.
