    Default INFP or ENFP?

    I was convinced that I was an INFP but now I'm not so sure. I don't think I'm as passive as INFP is supposed to be, and in IRL I'm very expressive even though I'm not extremely social. I like to talk things out. I'm not meek.

    I assumed "I" because I associate extroverts with being extremely social and always needing company, and I need more time to myself. However, I've read that ENFPs are "introverted extroverts" and on Socionics.com I tested as an ENFp.

    Does anyone have an opinion based upon what they've observed on here?

    Lady X is the person you need to speak to as she went through the same thing when she first arrived, however, after knowing her for a little while there was just NO question about her being an ENFP!

    Most of the ENFPs here have doubted whether they were E. Do the N and P weigh down the E like an anchor? Maybe they end up "looking introverted" in an SJ environment (S and J opposing their natural N and P)?

    Edit: Just saw another thread, probably should have posted this there: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...extravert.html Which Marmalade has already visited.

    None of what you listed has anything to do with E vs I. I'm not as passive as an INFP is supposed to be, I'm a social person. This doesn't make me an extrovert. As for liking to talk things out that doesn't seem to have to do with extroversion. I'm not overly meek either.

    I assumed "I" because I associate extroverts with being extremely social and always needing company, and I need more time to myself. However, I've read that ENFPs are "introverted extroverts" and on Socionics.com I tested as an ENFp.
    They are the introverted extroverts, like ENTPs, because they are lead by Ne. Intuition is a purely mental process, thus being in your head and not outward like a normal extrovert. You don't seem like an ENFP at all. Not at all, in any way, from seeing you post on here. You definitely aren't an Ne dom. Plus I don't see the EXXP in you.

    Also, socionics is NOT MBTI. You might be an ENFp in socionics, but you can be an INFP in MBTI. And also if you're relying on a test and think that a different test result changes things, well you're mistaken. Here's what I got on a recent test-



    And that doesn't change me at all. It just means I'm a more balanced person.

    I'd say if you score as ENFP then you're balanced on E/I, which is a good thing.

    I could be mistaken though, you could be an ENFP. You know you the best.

    Which of these profiles do you relate to more?

    INFP
    ENFP

    And also which of these are you?

    Great suggestion, Black Cat.


    Yeah, if you're undecided between INFP and ENFP, this could be the clincher.

    It certainly was for me.

    I voted INFP because of the way you argued with me EXACTLY like my INFP friend does. I've never argued with an ENFP on here that way. (The difference was that you were able to tone the situation down when I offered a tone down post. He usually won't.)

    I'm very extroverted but in social situations I can be uncomfortable.

    Ha ha I argued just like your INFP friend...are ENFPs not argumentative in your experience? I can get intense about certain issues. It depends on my mood.
