I have a lot of admiration for a gay xNFJ 19 years older than me (college teacher and almost a friend now). I agree strong Fe in guys has something irresistible. Always deriving the attention from him to praise other people, putting in the spotlight those who work "behind the scene" (for colloquiums for instance), jumping in to offer his help, emphasizing the importance of community and spaces for exchange and research. I remember being stuck in an awkward conversation with someone until he noticed the awkwardness and delivered me from it by joining us and asking me questions - Fe antennae are crazy, so quick to pick up on social cues and smoothly act on it.
(I didn't expect ENTJ from the test either, as my answers were rather Fe oriented)
Yeah, he was my professor a few decades back. I hadn't kept in touch with him, but I randomly searched his name a few months or a year ago, and his recent obituary came up.
I think it was the old Keirsey website that associated the word "magnanimous" with ENFJ style. It was like a palpable quality around that man. Another one, too, later, who might have been either an ESFJ or an ENFJ.
It's a good character trait.
Have you met other ENFJs than your former professor ? I can see ENTPs and ENFJs being a good match, too bad we hardly see it on PerC. Both types are quite rare already (especially ENTP females and ENFJ males), so is this pairing apparently.
