    If you think of it from the bees' point of view, you would change your mind.

    Most ENFPs on here have writing in their first few interests. Most ENFPs are also very adept at science. And from memory, I saw somewhere that ENFPs were most common in the top intelligence bracket (being one of the more common N types). So why would creative abstract systems thinkers who are interested in writing and science, and in the top intelligence bracket, not be on the lists? I always figured it was the list makers not knowing their types, and thinking writing = 'I', science = 'NT'.

    Lots of people still confuse us with ESFPs and think we are primarily performers.
    nice post...i'm starting to think people don't have a very clear picture of the type.

    You're one of those people that confuse Feeling with having a kind heart. Fi can be full of bad emotions. Evil ones too.

    I'm not saying it's the case with Twain, or that this particular prank is reflective of that but I'm just saying.

    It is because Fi shows through way more online. So the association with what ENFPs are like in the real world isn't really made.

    I love pranks too. I think ENFPs are probably as unserious as ENTPs. I'm not sure about ENTPs, but I'm into creative stupidity, normally more left field. Andy Kaufman might be the best public example of an ENFP prankster. If people think Kaufman couldn't do the pranks Twain did, then they can use it to claim ENTP.

    I think the Fi argument for Twain is probably right. There is that Fi rebel element. Dissecting the social norms, and all that. Also the interest in honesty about self.

    ENTP sounds very reasonable.
