    Default gromit an ISFP?

    I used to be fairly confident about my type, but now I am not so sure... what are some differences between ENFP and ISFP?


    Also, I just have a strong aversion to being put into categories in general...

    Well I have a strong Se and Fi (also Ne, so I thought, but maybe it is Ni...)

    Yes, it is really the Se that is throwing me for a loop. If I am actually an ENFP, then I have a very well-developed Se... I am enchanted by textures, flavors, beautiful objects (my sister calls them "nib nobs")... everything physical. Sometimes I experience something with one sense and then feel it in another sense as well. Like music as textures, numbers and letters with different emotions/colors, etc. I was climbing trees by the time I was three years old and played varsity sports through college, and I love just doing things like gardening, carpentry, painting, coloring, interpretive dancing (by myself - don't make fun)...

    But then, if I am an ISFP, I have a very strong Ne, so I just do not know.


    I know every person uses all the functions at varying levels/degrees, and I also know that the typology is more like tools for understanding ourselves than actual proscriptive categories.

    I just don't really know...

    By your definition it sound like you are an ISFP with a strong Ne. Now I'm not too familiar with the function but I've been told that my Ne is strong too.

    Also from what I've read, ISFPs are the ones who need some socialization compared to other introverts.

    I still really don't know about you. But I do know that Se plus Ni can sometimes look like Ne.

    I don't know which is more compelling to me: sparkly things/sensations or sparkly ideas and concepts. I read this description from wikipedia (I know... ) and think that is maybe my life's purpose:

    Ne finds and interprets hidden meanings, using “what if” questions to explore alternatives, allowing multiple possibilities to coexist. This imaginative play weaves together insights and experiences from various sources to form a new whole...

    gromit judging by your avatar and the way you project yourself, I would take ISFP.. But that's just my opinion!

    Just be you, k?! Be what you think you are/will be! Life's easier that way!

    Definitely Fi at least.

    I don't know what you should say. I don't really look for hidden meanings. Sometimes they pop up and I explore them. But it isn't a real drive. It is wrong to think I am always focused on what is right in front of me though. A lot of time I am lost in thought, but not really looking. Just playing with an idea.
