    Default Hello, I am an atypical ENFP...

    I've been living my whole life thinking I was an introvert, but lately I've been getting into this whole MBTI business and learning about the functions, and I think after all this time, I've actually found out I am an extrovert. Or an introvert with potential...that sounds kind of stupid though... Anyhow, my personality functions and weaknesses fit ENFP to a tee. Well, except I've dealt with depression my whole life, so I've only gotten to experience my ENFPness sporadically.

    I am enneagram 9, which is supposed to be rare in ENFP, but I am also quite sure I am a 9, as I act like a 6 under stress (as in right now), and a 3 at my best. Wow, what a boring introduction so far...I might as well be explaining my homework...

    Hmm...I don't know what else to say. I came here from reddit. I hop around different websites, every few months I'll develop a new obsession with one and I have a feeling this may be the next one. I would like to learn more about my type as it relates to the "dark side", because all the literature I've read about ENFP seems to be overly optimistic, bubbly, inspirational hippie stuff and, well, I'm depressed. I can't relate to that. Hopefully I will find other to relate to. I've had the damnedest time trying to figure out my MBTI type because of this. I think that's all. I probably forgot a bunch of stuff.

    Welcome. I too thought I was an introvert, but I discovered otherwise once my thinking became healthier and when I looked at the functions. I'm eNTP.

    welcome, ksilva.

    yeah, extroversion/introversion can be a weird thing to figure out. hope you learn more about your type and enjoy your time here.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    An eNTP is an introvert.
