    A handful of comments on that post in the vein of, "I'm an ENFJ, and this is the best compliment I've ever gotten / how I see myself."

    I haven't armchair-diagnosed any ENFJs whom I would see as reflecting that profile, but maybe there's something to it if it resonates with a lot of ENFJs.

    Kind of interesting take that guy has.

    Here's another person's take on this, though. Leon Tsao echoes Blake Donovan's ENFJ profile (I'm not indicating that he has ever read it; he's not referring to that profile), and he describes it as more of a delusive self-image, shared with ENTJs and based on tertiary Se.

    While I personally have no idea whether he's right about ENFJs and ENTJs, I do think he's right about ENTPs and ESTPs, which he talks about later in the video. I might not actually be an ENTP, but I see it as a driving motive in the ETPs I've known.
    Of course, that doesn't mean he's right about every type's "hidden agenda".

    Here's what he thinks is ENFJs' (and ENTJs') hidden agenda:

    They're afraid of appearing weak at all costs. So... I know quite a number of ENFJ males walk around like this (Leon puffs his chest up and pumps his arms up and down), and a lot of ENFJs I know try very hard to be "bad-ass". Like, a pattern I see is that they try to pretend to be goody-two-shoes in front of your parents, and then they pull you aside, and they're like, "Hey, by the way, do you know I'm a bad-ass?" And then they try... They talk a lot about getting tattoos and piercings, and then put up edgy pictures of themselves on Facebook. So, a lot of ENFJs I know are into kickboxing... (He says something about ENTJs for a moment.) It's not uncommon for ENTJs and ENFJs to have dating advice in which they tell you to be an animal on the prowl.

    LOL

    The part of the video from 1:49--2:56 is the part transcribed above and is the part that echoes Donovan's. (Entire ENFJ part is from 1:12--2:56.)

    This doesn't resonate with me at all, though I'm not an Enneagram 8 and am female. I can see how I could possibly have these tendencies if I were in an unhealthy place, maybe? I don't know.

    Since the posts in this thread seems lost about ENFJ, I just thought of dropping these ENFJ vids here:
