But I'm pretty sure the girl you're talking about is ESFJ.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
Wow, that sounds exactly like an immature ENFP that I know! I mean EXACTLY! The intrusiveness, the jelousy, the false philosophical depth, the wishy-washyness, everything....and she's in her thirties. I know teens more mature than her.

Yep, sounds like a former friend of mine, and he was almost definitely ENFJ.
A colleague of the great scientist James Watson remarked that Watson was always “lounging around, arguing about problems instead of doing experiments.” He concluded that “There is more than one way of doing good science.”
It was Watson’s form of idleness, the scientist went on to say, that allowed him to solve “the greatest of all biological problems: the discovery of the structure of DNA.” It's a point worth remembering in a society overly concerned with efficiency.
- Changes her mind constantly. Always seems very sure each time she changes her mind, like this is the last time. But it never is.
- Talks a lot about Buddhism, but it seems to be all talk. Very inconsiderate of other people's lives and needs.
- Easy crier.
- Will be very intrusive, calling people at inconvenient times of day or dropping by when she's already been informed that they're busy.
- Seems envious of her friends.
- Complains a lot about her parents.
- High expectations and complains a lot when they're unmet. Seems not to realize when people are going out of their way for her.
- Loves to talk about philosophical topics, but I often get the sense that she doesn't really understand them.
- Accuses people of things in a passive-aggressive way, without just cause.
- Compliments and insults just as easily.
- Can't tolerate noise. Always stresses need for serenity.
- She really likes me a lot even though I've given her no reason to and make an effort to avoid her. She seems to find my opinions interesting.
I also wonder if my feelings about her can help to type her. ENTP interacting with ____?
I haven't fully read the entire thread, but her behavior resembles that of my grandmother, an unhealthy ESFP who has had a couple of mental illnesses throughout her lifetime (Purposely correlated "unhealthy" with "mental illness" here). Actually, she still has them both. The only difference between her and my nanna is my grandmother doesn't pretend to love philosophy or theory. I can see though that the girl is probably sensing your N without realizing that she's sensing your N and wants to engage you in deep discussions because she wants you to respect and admire...her?
I'm taking a shot in the dark here.
