The above is exactly how I felt during my school time. I didn't come prepared but I always managed it to somehow get a good grade. I also have an ENFP friend who had the same struggles.
You're most likely an ENFP 7w6. I mistyped myself as INFP as well at first, but then I got to know 2 of them and they were not like me. ENFPs are probably the most introverted E-types out there, so it makes sense why you could have mistyped yourself as INFP.
Maybe I don't know much about 7's, but I never really thought of myself that way. I guess everyone else does though, people tend to describe me in a very 7ish light, even if they don't actually know types.

That's always been my problem with my INFP typing. I have oodles of Ne, and I have a hard time identifying with Fi. I just see myself as introverted, is all. Also, I'm the kind of guy who can make an argument for any point, whether I believe in it or not. I can see so many different ways of looking at things, that I find it hard to pin down my own beliefs. That doesn't seem very Fi-dom to me.

Duly noted. Also, thank you! I try a little too hard to be, so I'm glad you appreciated my efforts

I don't feel cool/social enough to be 7w6. I guess 7 sounds so Se to me, and I really don't relate to Se. I'm not really a risk taker, or anything like that. I do risky things, but it's more of a result of me not realizing it was risky. I don't get off on danger. That being said, I don't know a lot about 7, because I never instantly related to it, and I just generally don't know a lot about the Enneagram.
One thing that does resonate with me, is that 7's avoid their problems. I definitely skate over/avoid my problems with cheery frivolity.

Not the first time someone has suggested that to me, but I figured my mom would have noticed, considering she has studied LD's. She just thinks I'm flaky and undisciplined, a lazy underachiever.
You mean the ESxxs...Why is high-school such a cruel and violent place...
You preacher. Me choir.
I have been compared to him pretty frequently, not always in a nice way. I personally really relate to him, and interestingly, he describes his early childhood self as VERY introverted.
This means you are not a Se-dom or Se-aux...
Yeah, I know ENFP's aren't Se types, but they seem to relate to Se much more than I do. I originally thought I was an INFJ, based on my utter lack of Se.
I guess you are an ENFP...my sister is one I guess...And, you may have a childish-INFJ hidden somewhere inside of you as well...
You don't sound convinced, about me OR your sister. Weird that you picked up on the INFJ vibe, but I really relate to INFJ too, actually.
