If well-intentioned, with an orientation to life not purely egoistical, he may render exceptional service as the promoter, if not the initiator of every kind of promising enterprise."

    There is more to say about the type of character involved when extraverted intuition is at play, of course. But these facets do supply a cause worthy of proper ascription... it goes beyond the 'understanding' of potential (as is typically correlated with Ne), to being consumed by potential at deep levels of the psyche. Lady X actually touched on that,

    I don't think there's anything wrong with it, for the record. I agree with Jung's assessment, "It is at once clear, both from the standpoint of political economy and on grounds of general culture, that such a type is uncommonly important." I just don't think many people see it for what it really is, and by extension, fail to see the other functions for what they really are.

    Given all this information, I think you can find ENFP's at political rallies moreso than any other place, statistically.
    I recall reading this quote by Jung and noting it was much more descriptive of the entp than enfp- we can have some of these negative traits as well as others he mentioned, but I get the feeling he didn't quite understand enfps very well. Unterestingly, Jung had an affair later on in life with a presumed enfp- his excuse to his wife was that he needed to explore his anima....

    I think I remember reading that ESTPs like a little conflict. So I don't think he's being mean-spirited, just having fun with you guys the best way he knows how.

    Oh sky, that's great to know.

    I admire how willing you are to understand other people's perspectives, and also the way you are able to be assertive without ever sounding patronizing or excessive. Props.
