I am a female 30 year old INFJ, who has a male 30 year old ENFP coworker/friend who I absolutely love to death. We will probably date one day. We've known each other as friends for about 5 months. I feel frustrated trying to understand his communication style. He asks so many questions, I feel like I am being interrogated. I will answer his questions or even offer my opinion, so the conversation doesn't feel like an interview. But most of the time, I get no response, no feedback, or even an acknowledgment that he's heard me, he's already excitedly moved onto the next question. I can almost see his thought process as this: "I asked her a question, ok she answered my question, interesting... I will store this question away in my memory, this reminds me of another question, I will ask her a different question." He is like a speedboat going to one question to the next and I feel exhausted.
My question: Is this normal for most ENFPs? Is there a way for an INFJ to come to peace and feel fulfilled with this type of communication? Is there a way to get on the same page with him and feel a better flow of conversation? I understand my Ni might clashes with his Ne, when I want to go deep and he wants to go far... I don't want to bring this up as an issue if this is just a normal part of an ENFP's personality. I just don't know how to feel closer to him if I don't feel listened to and acknowledged.
It sounds petty, but I want to tell him, "please comment on my comment so I know you heard me and value my thoughts instead of jumping to the next the question... but this seems incredibly demanding of me. I'd rather try to understand him and adjust myself, instead of trying to make him change to fit me.
Any tips or advice?
