    INFPs and ESFPs?

    Just a few questions for the small minority of ESFPs that reside in this forum.

    How do you view INFPs?
    Have you ever met one?
    Did you ever get along?
    What did you converse about?


    I have a friend (ESFP) who is 2 years younger than me and we get along pretty well.

    I know an INFP girl.

    She can over think things but I just find it funny. We get along very well. We talk about her problems and then sometimes we talk about philosophy or what ever is on her crazily active mind. She has a lot of anxiety and is on medication for it. I'm always thinking about her...

    Now here's a question for you, how do you see the ESFP?

    ENFP - The Inspirers

    I dated one. He was a lot of fun and initially I enjoyed basking in his spotlight but he didn't get my anxiety around people and he would get impatient with me and I'd become jealous of him because things just seemed to come so easily for him (regarding making friends and whatnot). Eventually we just seemed to bring out the worst in each other.

    I've known other ESFP and while I like them in small doses it doesn't seem we have a lot to base much of a friendship on.

    I generally like ESFPs as friends, usually it's all good until it gets over-the-top with interacting with them and what they like to do and that's when I can take them in very small doses. I find myself talking to them about anything and they don't put a lot of input back but I think they try their best to listen... but sometimes feel like I should cut back a little and be "relaxed", but we have our own definition of that and we find ourselves walking on different lanes all of a sudden - they wanna do this, i wanna do that... they wanna go here, i wanna go there, etc etc. Overall the ESFPs I knew personally have been good enough friends.

    Yeah... I do find that I let her lead the conversation, but I try to give her my input as much as I can. She just seems to have so much more she wants to say.

    I have a lot of ESFPs in my life. Some frustrate me, some are awesome, some are both. It's a pretty "natural" friendship for the most part.

    Most of the time, I am quiet and calm with them. I often am in "healer" mode, listening to their problems, being sympathetic, and giving insight if asked for. I don't talk about myself much; as a result, many of my ESFP friends have complained that I am "guarded". They are a lot more open with their emotions than I am. At the same time, they seem content to rattle on about their lives & don't make much attempt to open me up.

    What I like about them is that they are fun, funny, and usually pretty positive and kind-hearted. They're also very loyal & giving friends, and are up to try new things. When they are smart, it is great to see that side. I don't have patience for the truly airheaded ESFPs.

    ESFPs frustrate me when they are intelligent but insist on the "dumb" act because they think it is cute & it gets them attention (usually the female ESFPs). They also may write off something as nerdy, dull or pretentious because it's intellectual, so that is a part of me I can't explore with them. I keep my hypothetical musings for my N friends. I'm sure occasionally I seem a bit moralistic & overly "deep", as they can seem a bit hedonistic and occasionally "shallow" to me. But I mostly admire them for their light-hearted fun attitude and they seem to admire my book smarts and imagination.

    Well before I became friends with a ESFP, I always viewed ESFP's to be up themselves and very competitive. But since I got too know you guys better, I see you now as friendly, fun, good listeners and smart.

    Because his older brother (who is the same age as me) is a INTJ. I feel like the communication link.
    They definitely get along better since I became friends with both of them.

    this is kind of the opposite for me...i'm more of a listener and she's more of a talker O.o (my ESFP friend that is)

    One of my best (male) friends is ESFP. He can be pushy and he's not particularly bright but he's got great people skills and a fuckton of practical knowledge.

    He can talk about pretty much any topic even if he can't go that deep into it, and he's got a "just do it" attitude that I'm glad has rubbed off on me a bit. I daresay though that most Se dominant types I've met have annoyed me with how much they try to test your mental and physical resolve.
