I think both.
Well you cannot compare them as they take socialization way more differently.
I think with estps they can just talk with anyone basically
With enfjs i think they're also about a bit choosy on who's to befriend with? I just noticed it.
It's like estps can befriend just anyone
While enfjs are kinda selective but they're really fucking awesome in making friends and tying up the connections. XD
Estps they're not good at tying up the connections like the enfjs does
Because enfjs usually call you, really make an effort to keep in touch whilst estps be like, hmm. Not really that effortfull probably because they're not Fe-doms.
But basically socially wise, i think enfjs would win
I think so. Like quality vs quantity
This threads amusing to me I have two closer ENFJ friends
They are better at having no emotional boundaries. This is what helps them cultivate and attract people. The problem is when they end up in crisis and do not know when to STFU. So they both make friends with ease and generally attract people far more initially. But people can purposely avoid and run down another hall if they see an ENFJ who maybe for example is going through a break up. Because everyone else knows they will hear about it and it will be one of the hardest conversations to exit.
I wouldn't say I attract people as easy or initial as an ENFJ. But what I would say I can do better at is maybe have a sort of consistency in maintaining myself overall where eventually I can be an acquired taste people appreciate while maybe an ENFJ on the brink could wear people down emotionally and make them run another direction. Eh I don't deal with people hiding from me to avoid my lack of emotional diarrhea. But I definitely do not have that very warm embracing charm they have either.
Glorious infp master race!
you might ask:
because..... idk. why not?
(actually i think estps are better. at surviving at least. and that's what matters isn't it? winners write history, and cowards usually.)
off i go
While ENFJs are planning the party, ESTPs are out partying.
ESTP. person who wins is the person who can bounce back faster and who cares less. That is the XSTP. ENFJ Has 20 fuck factories and takes a much longer time to get some limits and put other people in their place. That is a mess
