    Definitely procrastination is an NFP trait (not saying exclusively so). Having something become less-than-perfect once it becomes real is painful.

    You sound NFP and it really is in the details of what you said as some of it can go either way, but other portions are definite NFP.

    surely you're an F dom of one kind. I can't see you as an ENFP, INFP makes sense to me. ENFJ is a possibility though.

    which of these skills do you use most comfortably? an ENFP would use Extraverted Intuition (Ne) and Introverted Feeling (Fi) most easily, an ENFJ would use Extraverted Feeling (Fe) and Introverted Intuition (Ni) most easily.

    Ne: making connections, ideas, possibilties, figuring something out and then going backwards to figure it out consciously, rapidly understanding information at a rate that is lightyears of other people, making distinctions that protect you from overgeneralizing, adapting quickly to change, learning through reflection on information you have already gathered and making connections, comparing/contrasting certain ideas and ways of doing things, distinguishing the best aspects of both and combining them into a new way of thinking/doing that is better than both of the originals
    Ni: knowing for certain what will be, studying for long hours and getting nothing to all of a sudden having an epiphony and having everything come together at once, finding the leverage points of information that determine everything, completely understanding every little aspect of something, dissecting something into a thousand pieces and having them all come together, having a sort of "brain orgasm" in which you attain massive amounts of information
    Fe: understanding how others feel, taking on what others feel yourself (like crying in movies for example), making decisions based on emotions and people involved, wanting to take care of everyone and being a big happy family, putting others before yourself
    Fi: rich fantasy, constant drive to create, having a strong intense moral code that is completely independent of those around you, having a sort of "internal flame" that drives you passionately to carry out your beliefs, being good with animals and small children, love of nature, appreciation/creation of art and music, gentle and calm until values are violated (at which point, watch the fuck out hahaha), knowing what you feel and why (Intrapersonal Intelligence), self reflection,

    PS: I use all of them pretty well, but it has to do with which ones you use most naturally =). I am ENFP and have been using Ne and Fi pretty much since I was born. if you are honest with yourself, you will know your type based on the skills that you utilize

    And also an Enneagram 9 thing.

    I know someone who is an ENFx and they have ADD too. It makes it sort of hard to tell, but I think you could be an ENFP or just have a slight preference over ENFJ. I would read some descriptions online and see which better suits you, because you know yourself better.

    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.

    me too, it sounds very accurate to me. I've always been annoyed by my ENFJ mother, feeling like she lacks common intuition and plays it way too safe by social norms. But she is actually super intuitive, she just has a lot on the line for herself I guess?

    In some situations, the understanding reached is that it is best to just jump.
