i am having a very hard time typing a friend of mine. halp, plees? both enneagram and mbti appreciated, though i'm just trying to figure out mbti to start with, really.
the only thing i know for certain, is that he is an extravert.
he's in his early 20s, living on his own, works a low-level management job in sales that he dislikes but seems to do well at. he eventually wants to be a teacher. my first impression of him upon meeting him was that he talks a lot and has a lot of ideas, both of which have borne out to be true. he has a creative streak and seems to be a random-information-gatherer - knows lots of trivia. he says he used to be quieter but now is a conversation initiator. regardless, i can't see him as an introvert.
he is fairly decisive, and has a strong sense of what he "must" do. he feels strongly about certain social conventions - he is very much the classic gentleman - very polite. i have talked to him about this and he believes in gender equality, but he does like the classic male/female roles and enjoys playing out the more dominant male role to a more submissive female counterpart. he's fairly sentimental and will hang onto things that are important to him, and loves photos. he definitely has a soft heart even though he likes to be masculine. he's that guy who would stop by the side of the road to help the wounded kitten, etc
he is very responsible - will not just bail on things, generally runs 15-20 minutes early, fairly organized - though his room is usually just a little messy. he has a strong sense of duty to his family... a strong sense of duty in general, i think. but it's a very solid, independent thing, like he has strong boundaries for what he feels like he should do, so he will take care of others, but also has a strong sense of when/where he doesn't have to anymore. does that make sense? like he is responsible up to a certain point and will be very conscientious up to that point, but past that point he will not worry about it. he is quite independent, really. he absolutely hates the idea of not being self-sufficient. he also likes things to be up front - if there is any mystery, he wants it to be on his end - he really doesn't like not being in control, though he is not particularly aggressive. he's quite tenacious - will pursue things until he gets what he wants. he's tangential in speech but not easily blown from a course he's set to in action.
he likes to travel and explore, and has a thing for proper grammar. my lack of capitalization bugs him he cracks a lot of jokes and is pretty sarcastic at times. he tends to reference obscure things and is highly pleased when others pick up on them. he also likes other cultures and classic cars. he's good with people - charismatic - though he's got less of a tolerance level for bad attitudes or idiocy than i do. he will be curt with people without remorse if they've lost his respect (contrast me, i almost always feel bad about being curt even if i really dislike someone). he's also pretty self-assertive and will whistle-blow if he feels things are unfair, but again is very up front about it, and not spiteful.
ahhh i don't even know
edit: maybe he is an ENFP also and that is why this is so confusing
doubleedit: is it even possible for an ENFP to usually run 15-20 minutes early?
