    ENFPs and Navigating Unfamiliar Territory

    So, last night my friend asked me to hang out at his college. (Bowling Green State University, abb. BGSU) I have never really been through his campus at all, and so I just followed his lead wherever he went.

    I attended one of his Classics classes with him (Caesar and Christianity), and he had an exam for the next class in the same building. He gave me the option of waiting (BORING!), or he could give me his keys and I could find my way back. With my classic faux confidence, and immense self-doubt, I took the latter option.

    Here's how I, an ENFP, navigated the campus:

    First, I exited out of the same doors we entered through. Then, I found the spot that I did a random interview for a friend I knew from high school. I took that path straight (I remembered that there was very few turns involved from the buildings to the interview.), and found the overhang building that made me think about how light is the only thing you can truly do classical trigonometry with. I looked left, and found the "pillar thing" that my friend said would curse you if you walked to its left. I followed the path, and saw the sign that said "Founders Hall." Since it was the only building's name that rang a bell, and there was a student there, I knew it had to be my friend's dorm. Knowing that I didn't know my way in from the front, I turned left and found the dumpster, and voila! I made it into my friend's dorm with an extremely limited knowledge of the campus.

    Have any of you ENFPs experienced a similar scenario, where you were trying to get somewhere in unfamiliar grounds by yourself? Did you use a similar process of relating random experiences together in order to find your destination? I'm curious.

    Not really, but you've just reminded me of a time at university when I got really drunk at a party at my friend's new house. When I left, I started walking home on autopilot. 15 minutes later I didn't recognize a particular park and I realised I was in completely the wrong part of town - an area I didn't know at all. Confused and a bit panicked, I tried to figure out why "reality wasn't right", then realized that in my drunken state I had followed my usual internal directions from her house to my house, forgetting that her new house was in a brand new location, and in doing so had gotten myself completely lost.

    Once I had had a good giggle at my stupidity and was done admiring my brain's attempt to get me home safely despite the disability I had imposed upon it, I had to sober up enough to reverse my usual directions, which took me back to her house. Then I went back to the party and when it came to leaving again I made extra sure to set off in the correct direction.

    I use this ALL the time. On top of that, I specifically try to invent something random and memorable out of nothing when I go someplace new (even when it's just on a map). That way I have waypoints should I ever need them. It works. I am always the guy in groups who knows how to get where we're going.
