    I too have gone through phases where I needed to be pulled out of the house by someone. Not anymore though. I'm married to an introvert so I have to be the one who's almost always proactive about leaving the house to do stuff.



    ^Such is the Se life. I don't think it's that different for all of us. I too bond with people and when it's time to move on it's a nice round of good byes and those people tend to leave their impression on me forever. One of my goodbyes lasted a good 30 minutes of my best friend at the time just bawling his eyes out and recording a lengthy message on video cam for me. I miss him. Like I miss all of my good friends. But the thing I look at is that I got to share the time I did and the memories are still very real to me.

    The thing is, for every person I've left behind I've found someone (or a few more) new people so to me, I get to experience the newness of getting to know knew people over and over again and that in and of itself is a good feeling.
    OK so few things- I have went through recently an experience eerily similar to the Ni delving deeper into life- (TRIGGER WARNING!)......So first, I was obsessed with death. Like we are all going to die, and like our lives will be erased into nothingness, unless we get famous or something. But, I concluded that if you live a full life, by the time you are old and fragile, you will be satisfied and accept death...then I went into a tangent like if hormones and neurotransimitters influence mood and personality, then how tf am i supposed to love someone else if they are going to change....and trust me, these thoughts got depressive in weeks because It dehumanized everything...so i concluded that everyone has the basic core, and external factors will modify that "core" being...Ugh what kind of thoughts am i having at 16 lmao

    You're young so you have plenty of time to figure this out on your own, but I'll throw some advice your way anyway. People change, yes that's true. The person you fall in love with will not be the same person in 5 years, maybe even in a year. If they're healthy, this is a good thing! We should all be striving to grow and become better people. You can't grow without change!

    But loving someone as they change, as they age, well it's easy if I'm honest. You're growing with them. You're changing together. And it's messy sometimes, sometimes there can be growing pains, sometimes one or both of you go through a hard time. But that's life and it's beautiful anyway. Embrace the change.

    From everything you've mentioned, you sound like an ESFP rather than an ENFP imo.

    It seems like ENFPs are a lot more "people-y" than ESFPs. Not sure why this is. Maybe it's the EXFPs I've come across? I've noticed what you said about ESXPs appearing introverted, not in an ISXP way, but reserved to some extent.

Whilst Ne-doms are intuitive we predict a thousand scenarios and very rarely do we know what's coming instinctively, it takes us a longer time to sort through all the possible outcomes before we come to one potential. I personally cannot predict what someone is going to ask me unless I have had enough time to quickly sort through everything it could be in my head and because of that I generally only know what's to come when I can retreat and consciously consider.

    Let's talk about Ni vs Ne then. Ni is conclusive, it purposefully tries to find the answer to something and understand a concept. Ne is expansive, it is less interested in "the answer" as it is in "all of the answers" so much as it builds upon them to find connections to other possibilities.
    This is one of the best explanations of Ni vs Ne that I've seen.

    @The Big S

    Ten years ahead of you, I can say that the dark thoughts stick around but as long as you're engaging with the world they get less intrusive as you get older. and there's so much you can do with your life. People change, but you change too. Certain things will stay the same, but not everything. I occasionally still fall into existential crises - I'll be in school 'til I'm in my 30s, so I often feel like I'm falling behind somehow - but it literally doesn't matter. different strokes for different folks. things can go from 'everything is meaningless so why try' to 'everything is meaningless, so why not' if you want them to. you may even be ahead of the game by examining these thoughts now rather than later.
