    yeah...but we can also enjoy time alone...supposedly being the most introverted extravert...right? so this guy drives around like some lurch looking for company all day...that's weird.

    Sounds just like 2 confirmed ENFP males that I know...

    Seems like a very insecure ESFP to me, as well.

    The culinary school thing was the giveaway.

    I mean, he could be an ESFP.. but I haven't known any socially awkward ESFPs. I'm sure they exist. That'd be my only other guess.
    I suppose a difficulty in typing some odd people is that it is sometimes hard to separate a quirk or defect from how they process information. Is his somewhat histrionic behavior the result of an information process or is it an expression of a disorder? Nearly impossible to tell without knowing him personally.

    I think it sounds just like he's very extroverted. Very extroverted ENFP's are going to be like that, I imagine. Even if ENFPs are the most introverted of all E types.
    I'm getting myself confused. Need a chart or something to demonstrate.

    Dunno about the type, but it sounds like he's faking Fe constantly, and failing miserably. Sad really, all he needs is someone to explain to him that he doesn't have to try that hard, and that just being himself is going to win over more people than what he's doing now. He must feel real lonely and rejected. +1 for tenacity though.

And if you're wondering why he's around, it's because (1) he's a friend of the family, and (2) he is the type of person who comes around uninvited all the time. So now I'm interested in hearing what you guys think about his type.

    Here are some basic things about Beefy:

    • He's a sensitive guy. He gets his feelings hurt easily and has a nurturing nature. We often refer to him as the "mother hen" behind his back.
    • He writes poetry but is loathe to advertise this fact.
    • It sometimes seems like he is primarily motivated by what others think about him. For this reason, he says and does things to impress those around him. And if he can see that you're not impressed by his story or his antics, he doesn't stop...he tries harder and harder (becoming more annoying by the second).
    • He's flighty. He just drives around and finds people to be with (and get food with) all day long. He suddenly decides to go here or there at the drop of a hat.
    • His car is messy.
    • He wants to go to culinary school.
    • He doesn't really work.
    • He doesn't have a mean bone in his body.
    • He is awkward with girls. He likes to flirt very overtly, and is not afraid of asking a girl out, but he just always gets rejected. They often refer to him as a "creep."
    • In social settings, he is effusive and manages to talk to everyone (sometimes all at once).
    • He can't be quiet for two seconds. Usually he is talking nonsense and being silly.
    • Did I mention he is very very silly?
    • He is gullible.
    • In social settings, he is concerned that everyone be included. He doesn't let anyone feel left out.
    • He's not particularly clever. It seems like him and I are on two different wavelengths. I often have to stop and explain my quips to him.


    This is it for now. What do you think?
    These statements are making me think that he's not grounded in reality at all- making him more N. (Just an N with lots of flaws.) Also the creativity with the poetry and culinary arts. Sounds like a possibilities and opportunities kind of guy rather than a real-life kinda guy.

    The last statement doesn't necessarily point to N- BUT I picked it because it relates to the 2 that I know that I'm comparing him to.

    The problem with not trying hard is that some people are actually boring and so need to attempt to be more interesting.

    But that's a good point about the Fe thing. I'm thinking ENFJ, now.

    Here's a question. When he's rambling on, what's he rambling about?

    That could give a clue.

    Sounds like an ISFP that's trying too hard to be an ESTP. I pretty much agree with Jeffster on this one.
