ENFP would be a Sanguine in the social area (Inclusion). This would correspond to the Get Things Going Interaction Style (extraverted, informing). It could also be a blend of Sanguine with Phlegmatic (which just tempers down the traits a bit).Btw, my problem ENFP has all four (or five if we're being technical) temperament elements except choleric. His strive for success has been chopped off. Any ideas?
NF sould seem to be closest to either a Phlegmatic in Control (which is very diplomatic like NF), or possibly even Supine, the fifth temperament. More likely, a Supine-Phlegmatic blend, as the pure Supine has dependency issues I don't see in most NF descriptions. (they can't make independent decisions, yet the Phlegmatic and Supine-Phlegmatic blend are more independent).
Then, in Affection, he could be anything, as that area doesn't seem well represented (at least not directly) in the type system. If he's Melancholy in that area, and the other three in the other areas, then he would be as you say, a blend of all temperaments except Choleric.
Has your brother taken the FIRO also like you and your father? Then we can get a better idea. As ENFP, I would expect a high e and w in Inclusion (People Gatherer, like you, but most likely with higher scores), moderate scores in Control (Matcher, like you, but with lower eC, or a Checker with even lower eC than Matcher, or maybe Loyal Lieutenant or Openly Dependant (low eC/higher wC), and perahaps a Pessimist in Affection (low e&w).
I had been typed as ENFP, and have been trying it on, yet there has always been questions about it. In addition to it apparently not matching the critical "Choleric" aspect of my personality as my APS score did (and an NTP type would seem to better fit), I have really been thinking about my function use. While some people say they have observed Fi and Te and I had at first accepted that, I think I might have learned those, in defense basically (due to coming from a very heavily "Te" STJ environment, who often hit you with it full force), but Ti "frameworks", "leveraging", "analyzing", etc. are really the more natural companions to my obvious Ne pref.
I am still in the process of fully understanding the archetypes, and I was also thinking about starting a thread in this sub-forum on my own type, but I wanted to think of more examples of my process use to show. I know some have said they read my pages on the correlation between the FIRO-APS system with the MBTI and Keirsey, and I have also discussed a lot of it here.
So those who have read my stuff, would you say it reflects more FP'ish "puer" Te and preferred Fi, or more TP'ish preferred Ti? Sometimes, it's hard to tell which are which. Like which are values, or "principles", and whether the thinking is being used "internally" or "externally".
I know I have used a framework (espressiveness and responsiveness matrices) in mapping the system together, yet I would imagine that the way I have actually spelled it out might come across as more Te-ish, especially with the tables and diagrams, and the length of it (Ti is supposed to be more "concise"). Again, I think that is just the way I have learned to express my thoughts, (and especially trying to break it down in to make people understand it); but it seems the actual internal processes might be more Ti. I have people say both ways. And ENFP's, from what I have seen, do not seem to be this much into theories and stuff, despite the dom. Ne and tertiary Te. I have joined several Yahoo groups, and do not seem to fit in. Their discussions are more like any other NF's.
