    Default Help type my housemate - EXXP?

    One of my housemates is kind of stumping me. Sometimes I think he's an ESTP, or ESFP, or ENFP, even considered ENFJ and some other types a few times. It doesn't help I often have trouble typing people because I'm unsure of myself and overthink things, it's difficult for me to narrow it down and definitively choose a type for someone. Can anyone help me out?

    • On first impression he can appear rather gruff. However, he's really friendly and generally good-natured. Most people like him.
    • Cheerful, upbeat. Usually has a smile on his face.
    • Expressive and has a flair for the dramatic. Can be wildly energetic.
    • Despite being temperamental sometimes, he's mostly even-keeled. Not much rattles him, he's fairly laidback.
    • Relaxed, easygoing. Let's people do their own thing. He can be a good leader though, he's great at bringing people together and has a knack for persuasion.
    • Generous, enjoys helping people out. Caring and affectionate towards his many friends. A nice dude.
    • Takes good care of himself and takes pride in his appearance. Tries his best to look good. Exercises a lot.
    • Can be kind of out there at times. Has some weird ideas about certain things.
    • Talks casually, sometimes to the point of being rude. He can be a really good speaker when he wants to be, though.
    • He's pretty 'manly' and projects a masculine image. However, he can be emotional and as stated earlier doesn't really have a problem showing his feelings.
    • Though emotional, he isn't exactly sensitive - he doesn't get his feelings hurt easily or take things personally.
    • Honest and straightforward, but never mean about it.
    • Fun and playful. Can be immature even, definitely a big kid.
    • Passionate, wants to make the world a better place. Something of an activist.
    • Often brazen and cocky. Carries himself with confidence.


    What do you guys think?

    ENFP or ESFP, but probably ENFP.

    Thanks for the responses! So he's probably one of the types I most thought he was. He seems fairly well-developed a person, which perhaps makes it harder to type him. Hm. I wish I could give more detailed info, but unfortunately I don't know him quite well enough. If any of you guys know ENFP, ESFP, or ENFJ men, could you describe them? I'm not close to anyone of those types, so I don't really have anyone to compare him to.

    I need more information before I am able to type him.

    He sounds like he is either ESTP or ESFP or ENTP from what you have described so far.

    I would like to give more info, but I don't know if I will be able to. Is there anything specific you'd like to know? Maybe I'll know the answer, depending on what the question is.

    Not quite enough info to make a firm decision, but I'll say ENFP.

    I'm glad to have a bunch of replies, even if opinion is rather mixed. I'm trying to think of anything else to say about him, but I can't think of anything that will be really helpful. Honestly, I'm pretty ok with not being 100% on his type. Maybe he's just a borderline case.
