    I think HollyGoLightly's advice is dead on. It's all about cognitive processes and hierarchy of functions. My INFP friends and I are so much alike. But there are differences, too.

    I recommend you check out the difference between Ne and Fi. Both INFP and ENFP have these functions. But it's more to do with our starting place. There is a big difference between:

    Ne buttressed by Fi, and
    Fi buttressed by Ne.

    Once you understand the more subtle points, then you'll have no more doubt.

    I say again, ENFP. T-O-T-A-L-L-Y.
    Thanks so much. I'm going to check it out.

    Anyone can be bordering on anything! Yes, it is possible that you can be both.

    No, you can't be both. That you both extravert (with intuition) and introvert (with feeling) doesn't mean you have two psychological types. No, you can't be both. Your type is one or the other, or something else completely. No, you can't be both.

    Has reading brought you any insight, so far?

    i dont think you can be both, but you can be so close to bot that you dont know if you process information using Ne -> Fi or Fi -> Ne

    Definitely.

    I do feel like I am an ENFP, but I do operate and make decisions as an INFP a good part of the time. I am VERY sensitive, and even though I am working on it, I will get my feelings hurt and revert to INFP. I am aware of it now, but before I couldn't explain what was happening before.

    I also see I have been almost exclusively acting in INTJ shadow mode for years due to stress. Not just in situations, like with INFP, but for huge blocks of time. I was a different person and I was pretty miserable.

    I see I have been very introverted for most of my marriage, and a good chunk of my childhood/teen years. I feel like I did it out of survival, but I am much happier and natural when I am able to extrovert and "feel like myself".

    So yeah, I am pretty much the typical ENFP who has all kinds of reasons for why I don't act typical

    I think you nailed it for me. It's really tough to decide. I really feel like I function in both. If one has to be greater than the other than it is Ne. Therfore ENFP.

    I agree with ENFP. As you've probably heard before, ENFPs and ENTPs are the most Introverted Extroverts. Blame your Dominant Ne for making you confused.
