    Smart Cookies.

    Unfortunately, it is likely that you have been duped, deceived and dumbfounded by my title, as there shan't be any actual cookies.

    'Lulz' aside, I've been incredibly pessimistic about ENFPs and people as a whole.
    For me, I'll be attending university next year. I want to know what I can hope to find in terms of the capacity of ENFPs.




    [TL;DR]
    Would you boast for me, ENFPs?
    Would you 'wow' me with your intellectual achievements?
    So that I may look forward to meeting an intellectual ENFP.

    I was disappointed about the cookies, but I became excited about teh lulz.

    I wrote a paper about the Quarto (Q) and Folio (F) versions of King Lear and how they differ, mainly trying to argue that Shakespeare revised from Q to F. The prevalent argument prior to Steve Urkowitz publishing his thesis The Revision of King Lear was that there was a "true" copy, and that either Q or F was corrupt. However, as I've found out (and as Urkowitz correctly points out), there's hardly any evidence for this. The common argument now is that, at some point, Shakespeare revised Lear from Q to F. Too many coincidences (F is better on stage; the cuts made that were previously argued for censorship improve the play as a whole; Shakespeare doesn't just spontaneously generate plays.) line up such that the "one true copy" argument hardly holds any ground.

    That took a lot of research (I read upwards of 500 pages' worth of academic essays on the topic.), and I earned an A+ on that paper. In fact, my professor (Who is a textual critic and knows a ton about the publication history of Shakespeare's time.) was so impressed that he requested that I stay in contact with him over the summer so we can work on this paper and improve my knowledge of textual criticism. I just finished his book he gave me and an essay he wrote about licencing in the 1600s. It's all very fascinating! :D

    Also, my ENFP friend and I have at-length discussions (often at Denny's!) that, in one sitting, usually span politics, history, philosophy, religion, sports, games, life, and many, many more fun things. We never get angry at each other, even though we poke fun all the time, and--I feel--we both gain a lot from our conversations together. Coincidentally, he is also considering a PhD, though he's looking to focus on Civil War Generals and not Textual Criticism. Fie on him!

    tl;dr: ENFPs are awesome.

    Reaction: Standard ENFP, sounds pretty cool.

    Well I just graduated from a college to which I received the top academic scholarship. I majored in social work and double minored in Spanish and political science. I came in as a biology major, which I was doing well with, but I dropped that because it didn't interest me enough. I've been on the Dean's List every semester and am in the top academic honor societies. I taught myself to read when I was 3 years old. I graduated 4th in my class in high school (and only because being in the top auditioned band was not weighted like the other honors classes, so my GPA was brought down). I graduated magna cum laude from college, and it would have easily been summa cum laude if I had cared enough to study. I've recently done extensive research on homeless youth, particularly those who are pregnant or parenting. I conducted research on the topic looking more specifically at effects of interventions on these youth (I found statistically significant results that they often respond more readily than non-pregnant/parenting homeless youth to the interventions of the agency I worked with, if you were wondering), and wrote a length and in-depth paper about it. Got an A. A few of the analyses I've written on works of Latin American fiction (in Spanish) have gone on to conferences and displays of undergraduate research, upon professors' requests. I know my grammar and sentence structure are not all correct and the organization of my thoughts is lacking...but that doesn't mean I'm not smart - just that I don't care.



    ENFPs are very smart cookies, but we'd be smarter if we had actual cookies. Chocolate chip, please!

    Maybe if you received 'summa cum laude' instead of 'magna'....

    But, I suppose your efforts are worthy of a cookie.

    Dictionary.com defines cookie as: "an alluring young woman"

    So, enjoy.

    It disappoints me that that picture is actually titled "alluring woman." Attractive, I suppose ('Tis only a thumbnail.), but that's not necessarily what I think of when I think "alluring," though my image of it may or may not be NSFW.

    Oh we are majorly smart and accomplished and excel at academics.

    If we can sit still long enough to finish anything.

    Our specialty is handing people their @ss in a colloquim discussion.
    ....if we've done the reading. ;D
    Or maybe even if not!!

    I don't think I've met an ENFP who wasn't smart... I mean... they don't know everything about everything... and that's fine... but their intuitive nature means that they're willing to question anything... and so they're not just sheep.... and that's one of the primary pillars upon which I begin judging intelligence. You folks seem to like to learn, just not perhaps in the traditional scholastic SJ manner... and I'm good with that :).
