    ENFP - The Inspirers

    I am bipolar and for a few stretches I was moderately depressed. My cognitive abilities, energy, creativity, jump, all of that took a real hit. I felt like I was pushing myself twice as hard and to everyone else it looked like I was slacking. I was also pretty sad, stressed and felt like I was doing everything I could to just get through the day.

    To outsiders who never knew me before, they would guess definitely introverted, maybe a lethargic ISFP, don't think I appeared depressed to most people.

    As for difference between ENFP and ESFP, you would get a ton more responses on the ENFP forum.

    Have any of you guys ever felt like an unhealthy INTJ, or is this shadow type thing rubbish?

    My girlfriend is an intj, I'm an esfp and yes under stress we start acting more like the other. For example getting me to talk about my emotions when I'm upset is near impossible. I just clam up and want to be left alone. However when she's upset she suddenly gets very needy and needs to talk about everything.

    I agree, when I am under stress I always act like one of my INTJ friend's negative aspects.

    There are times where I display the "thinking" part of INTJ, but I don't think I ever become an N or J.

    So one of my best friends is an ESFP! She has been feeling kind of down because she's not sure what she wants to do as a career... Right now she is working as a Pharmacy Tech at Walgreens. She's not sure whether to keep pursuing this job or become a paramedic.
    I couldn't really think of a career for her, but I thought she would be a good manager xD she's definitely not afraid of telling people what to do.. hahaha
    But she's interested in doing health care and she's extremely outgoing. I was wondering if you guys have anything to suggest for my friend?

    I would suggest to her do what you are most passionate about, and don't worry if you end up changing your path several times. There's no predicting where life will take you, so just try to enjoy as many moment as possible.

    What's any paranoia look like for you guys? If you could explain your thoughts and all if you ever get paranoid thoughts, dark ways of seeing things, mistrusting factual evidence and looking past prima facie meaning of things.

    It's paranoia that something I do now will make my future horrible, usually. Or something bad that happens today will mean hell for the next three years or even forever. It made me suicidal at one point, for a long time, which I know ESFPs seem to be least prone to that but whatever, everyone can get depressed if they're pushed far enough. And then I almost get like obsessive compulsive personality disorder to prevent my future from spiraling out of control. I isolate myself because I need to have control over everything, and overthink everything, all of which then makes me more depressed. So basically become a bad INTJ I guess. I also think that everyone thinks I'm crazy.

    Dark ways of seeing things...well, like I said, I see a future of nothing but sadness and disappointment, and I couldn't tell you my thoughts because I mostly just curl up into a pillow and try to block everything out. Misconstruing factual evidence would be like I said, one thing goes wrong, then I immediately think to years in the future where I am miserable because of this one thing that threw the train off the tracks so to speak.

    This all only happens when I am severely depressed and overwhelmed, and feel as though my life is completely out of control, when I feel like I can no longer be my normal spontaneous self because everything could end in disaster. It's unbelievably dark and scary and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
