I would never be friends with anyone who talked to me like that. If I were, that be the end. There are different ways of saying the same thing, and that one is just tactless and offensive.

2. If ENFPs are the most introverted extroverts does that make the INFPs the most introverted introverts?

3. Okay.. so Keirsey told that my natural partner is ENFP but unfortunately, I think I never had a friend who is ENFP.

So I have 3 question regarding this matter.

1. How do I recognize ENFP by behavior and look?
2. Where can I find ENFP other than on the dance floor?
3. It seems ESFP and ENFP is a bit similar, how do I differentiate them?

I think the answer might vary, but I just want to look for the generalization of it which something ENFP have in common. Thanks

Welcome!

First of all: I wouldn’t believe in Keirsey if I were you. I’m yet to meet an INTJ online or in person that I didn’t get into a fight with. This "opposites attract" theory is romcom bullshit most so-called ENFPs seem to buy. I’m actually close to be convinced that INTPs/INTJs are my nightmare men instead of dream ones.

1. You can’t. Behavior can’t be linked to type most of the times. It’s the opposite of what most people think. Believe or not I’ve been mistyped as INTJ at least three times in person and twice online, because I generally "act like one" in school and work situations during many years due to depression. And mistyped as ESFP in informal situations, so you see, it varies

2. The dancefloor is a good bet , but I’d also try karaokes, photography related activities; bookstores or public libraries, offbeat restaurants, vintage stores…the list goes on. Have you ever thought of attending a MBTI meeting? You’re more likely to meet a confirmed ENFP there then by chance.

3. Again, it can be hard unless you have time. In short: ESFPs are superficial and careless in their search for infinite fun, ENFPs are open minded and deeper in their search for infinite mental stimulation. I should let it very clear, I don’t mean to make less of ESFPs, but I know a whole bunch of them, and even thought I was one for a while, so I mean no harm.

Well personally I adore INTJs. so speak for yourself :D
And I can't speak for all ENFPs. but I'm one, and my brother is one. so I'll just tell you our traits

I think a lot of us (though not all) can be told by our clothes?
I don't know though, my brother has the whole greaser look going on, gelled hair leather jacket etc.
Whereas I have my own sense of fashion I guess. Purple Trousers, Rolled up blazer etc.

Though for me the biggest tell tale sign is the fact I'm pretty much always smiling. and if there is music I like playing, I'll dance to it.
Even if I'm in a cue at burger king.
I really don't care about others judging me so I act how I want.

Well, I don't get out much :/
But when I'm at college/highschool, I'm the one who is constantly surrounded by people, I'll never be alone unless I'm incredibly upset, which isn't often.
Also most places like that are in sections, so both my brother and I were only seen in the arts block (Music for him, Drama/Dance for me)

To be honest, I'm still trying to figure that out... testing myself 10 times and twice I was an ESFP
But I think the main thing might be how they go about enjoying the world.
I think S are more about trying new things and like... partying and stuff.

And N is more about being inside their own heads. I surprise my friends really.
I act like a nutter or a loony, but then I also have moments when I'm the deepest friend they know.

I'm obviously I’m stating my own opinion. Nowhere in the post have I said it was a fact or the gospel truth.

Telling type by clothes hardly works. I usually see ENFPs described as not having a fashion sense or being disheveled but I’m yet to meet one like that.

The only way for you to know for sure, is asking.

Don't take free online test, the result is quite misleading.
Yeah but according to theory, the nature of your personality couldn't change (what you born with which is I think there is some causation between our Biological body and Personality type). So the bottom line is your personality type has a default value but also a dependent variable (that is in your case: $INTJ = f(depression)$ or $ENFP = f(null)$ ).

MBTI meeting? nope. there is no such meeting in my country.

I think what I could go is only the Bookstores/public libraries.

is there any other place which is quiet in nature similar to bookstore/public library?

What do they usually do to get infinite mental simulation?

I'd met this kind of people couple times in the queue line and when I stare them, they smiled on me and that was so awkward. lol

Inside their own heads? oh really? c'mon give example!
don't they ENFP like to partying and stuff too since they're social butterfly?

Soo I am dating an entj which is somewhat similar an intj except he is sooo bossy :p hopefully I will give you some good advice.

1. My boyfriend was attracted to me at first because of how happy and smiley I was but that I was not some nutty airhead. I think you'll be naturally intrigued and attracted to someone very happy and almost silly with no strings attached to society. Then you will be hooked by their intuitiveness and that they will have be able to have an intellectual conversation with you. The rest will be a struggle however because you are opposites and you will have to learn to balance each other out harmoniously.

2. I don't know. I met my boyfriend in the university library.

3. Esfp are airheads :p no offense to esfps... But they are irrational and overly indulgent and a little egocentric. You will tell the difference once you try to have an intellectual conversation with them.

I met my INTJ in a community theater troupe. He had never been involved in theater before, but got involved in this one because it does original politically-related productions, and he's very into politics.

You can spot ENFPs because we tend to be very outgoing, have lots of friends, and are fun and happy. That happy looking person surrounded by lots of friends is likely to be an ENFP.

We also have lots of ideas -- about fun things to do as well as about things that we think could make the world a better place. If you are in our orbit and seem shy, ENFPs are likely to reach out to you in a friendly way and introduce you to people and bring you into our orbit. It's fairly easy to become an ENFPs friend. If you expose the ENFP to your analytical INTJ mind, and if you open up emotionally to the ENFP, the ENFP may become romantically interested in you as ENFPs enjoy exploring the layers of INTJs'psyche.
