    Hmm based on what ive seen around forum id say your a Ne sub type since you seem very Ne/Te with the Fi being repressed a fair bit giving you a tougher and more logical flavor compared to the more INFPish Fi subtype which focuses more on feelings and is overall softer and less "expansive".

    I'm fronting

    Edit...oh good you changed back. I felt like I was in a scary movie that avatar. (And yes, you are right about me I'm sure. I do hide my feels from the outside world though but don't know what that means functionally. <-Or no, idk. I hide the depth of my feels from most...even myself

    Based on my understanding I think Fi sub-type ENFPs are far less likey to hide behind a Te wall than Ne sub types based on the theory. I see a similar thing with ENTPs as Fe subtype ENTPs are far less "jerkish" and far more depedent in many ways,. Think Chandler from Friends who is a Fe subtype ENTP (Him being a 6w7 doesnt help things) and see how insecure he is lol compared to the cocky ENTP stereotype.

    Heh I do as well in many ways. I put on a troll front to hide myself to a degree as I find my trollish side helps defuse conflict and negativity keeping things light and shallow which is the So front until Sx kicks in then I wanna like be super deep with you. I've always seen So/Sx as like starting off with a party in your stylish lounge then scanning the crowd for those who you like and think will be good one on one and taking them to your embarrassing hobbies shed to get deeper with them so in other words the facade is dropped with a select few.

    The above description of the So/Sx type sounds much like me. It's fun to be around many acquaintances and have a good, light and casual time with. It's like this brief moment of feeling removed from any inner troubles or worries as you're just focused on the outside world a bit, but it gets to a point for me, where I absolutely need more. Where that light-hearted fun runs out of fuel and starts to bore me. That's when I do then like to pull some aside and talk about much more insightful things and exchange any wanderings of the mind with one another.

    Personally this approach makes a lot of sense for me regarding my development and experience over the years. Being afraid to reveal my true self to just anyone, being around many others in such a casual way at first, is like my selection process, my personal "interview" to see who will make the cut. Even then, there is yet another interview process of mine to determine if that person will make it into my inner circle of friends. Once someone is there, I hold onto them for life. None of this is all that conscious either, it's just something I've sort of noticed about myself in recent years as something I do. So it's interesting really, outwardly, I may appear very emotionally accessible, and compared to others (it's relative) I very well can be, but I'm really only letting on exactly what I want to show anyone at any given time.

    If you are in a group of friends and there is an INFP in that group, would someone think you're smarter than the INFP? If you think so, in what way? If not, why?

    Well I always consider the INFP "ENFP Lite"
    For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

    In my observations, introverts tend to get assumed by others as the more intellectually curious ones, the observers and those deeper in thought.

    No. There will be no little chat. I'll cover you, kiss you goodbye, and leave the talk for later.
    I'll listen to your feelings, I'll put myself in your stead, but chances are, I won't promise you something I may not deliver.
    I'll most likely deploy intellect and insidious acumen of the highest magnitude to concoct the blueprints of flawless crimes against humanity, in this case, hiding things I deem don't necessary require having you worried over, for I care about your well-being.

    And then im going to make it abundantly clear to you why white lies and efficiency are an oxymoron when it comes to me. I ll make you rue the day you kept something this big and important from me and decided for me, treating me like porcelain, however well-intentioned and sweet it is - and dont get me wrong, i do appreciate the intention.

    I ll make it a point to make this stuff such a big and inefficient head ache for you that you ll automatically think twice before going there again.

    And we ll rinse and repeat until the lesson sinks in. Lovingly so. Until i ve hijacked your need for efficiency to align perfectly with my need for honesty by simply making it the most efficient route to take.

    Ime, it takes about three sessions before it takes effect. You guys tend to be efficient that way

    After that, i ll happily fall asleep, curled up in your arms *yawns*
    Picture a valiant man of honor who'd pierce through the demons threatning his loved ones and protecting them with ferocious and unwavering volition. He's their sword, and their shield.

    So am I.

    I wouldn't require you to go on the battlefield, to fight, put yourself in harm's way, while I'm here. It is that care and compassion while you're attending to my wounds which gives me strength and power. I'd likely wouldn't have done many things if you weren't there, but just because I have the firm knowledge that you will, I can surpass my wildest limitations.

You would know that motherhood is a sacred contract I have entered into with the Great Beyond. You would know that my child...our child will never go to the hospital without me because it is not the seriousness of the injury especially considering not every wound can be qualified and quantified... It is her knowledge that I will always be there for her in the greatest capacity.

    The above would never come to pass because you would already know that the best way to love me and ensure my wellbeing is to hold me up so I can fulfill my sacred duty. And I will do the same for you.
    I highly respect the virtue you're displaying. This comes to confirm why I chose you as my bride.

    That link which you describe, I have lived it with my own mother. Sacrifice beyond the ordinary. My dad was an INTJ, absolutely protective of us, used to conceal many things. She could read him like no one else could. Even when she was dying, seeing him besides her, they had this aura of passionate and out-of-this-world and awe-inspiring endearment. I was very privileged to be their son.

    My mother knew about his nature, and she let him do what he wants to do. I would ask her "Where is my father?", and she would answer "Your father is being your father like always", and we'd almost sigh together. Of course she cannot hide her worry, she's a wife and a mother, but she had great faith in him, and she never made him feel guilty for anything. I slowly understood his behavior as I'm growing up and analyzing my own. She fed him love, motivation, acceptance, and infinite warmth, while he was the charismatic and protective emblem of our family. He died years after she passed away in grieve and yearning. Even as the rock he was, the greatest warrior made of steel he was, he couldn't stand living without her after all these years. Her name was the last thing he said.

    As much I'd make a standing ovation for the fondness and motherly affections you're showcasing, I won't let you come in my feelings' way about you, nor about our children.

    I always think of ENFPs as INFP 'Bold n Spicy'.
