    Two friends of mine and their boyfriend/husband

    Hey there.

    If you find this kind of threads annoying, I appologise.
    If you have fun trying to type people through second-hand descriptions, I am grateful :).

    I have two friends, and I have really tried to figure out their types and their boyfriends types, but I am stuck somehow.

    (A) First friend:

    - She is extremely individualistic, would never care about what others thought about her clothes, e.g., even during puberty. and her way of clothing was really individualistic as well. she never cared about make-up and things like these
    - she is extreeeeemely enthusiastic. and she will try to convince you of doing what she wants to do..... (if it is something she would like you to do with her), doesn't respect your point of view, and doesn't respect if you say "no".........rather pretty "invasive", in some degree
    - she is really "extreme" in her point of views - only black and white..... either/or....which can be very annoying.....:)
    - has a really expressive way of speaking (linked to her enthusiasm)
    - she was really into making classical music (playing cello)
    - cared about things such as reading literature, really good at painting, did some writing, composing etc., very creative
    - really loved being outside and loved nature, taking long walks and doing things outside
    - got really esoteric/spiritual at some point....even in connection to some kind of sect I think :/
    - she is very demanding and overwhelming, at least I had trouble with that... I mean I really love her so much, but she sometimes was "too intense" for me, too much.....:/
    - I think you could say she had a really philosophical nature :)
    - she always questioned everything (and in this extreme way I mentioned)
    - eveyone was really surprised when she married in her early twenties and got 2 children -- seems really good at handling this...
    - she quit university (theology) for selling dietary supplement....and she made that sound as if this was what she REALLY wanted to do.....

    - I think she is definitely an E, and in some kind I think she must be an NF. though I am not completely sure.... I have thought she could be an ENFP....but....then I am not too sure....I just dont know....

    (B) her husband (there's not much information I can provide)

    - He studied mathematics and works something with programming computers, I think
    - He is very outgoing, and he and my friend enjoy doing things like dancing together, enjoying nature and things like these
    - He is also very enthusiatic, but bit different than my friend, not this "overwhelming" quality
    ach, I'm sorry, I think I should forget typing him, I just can't provide enough information, argh :/...
    I thought he might be an ENTP, but that is only my first guess, and I can't supply enough information for this assumption



    (C) Second friend

    - she tested as an ESFJ once.
    - she has studied comptuer science, but hated programming
    - she really likes gossipping, and is really talks bad behind peoples' backs
    - I think she is extrelemy S. dont know, not intuitive at all...cant describe it...
    - she is not compassionate or empathetic at all. cannot accept that people might have mental diseases, may be depressed etc., always argues "they can do if they want"......
    - doesnt like lazy people, and really worked hard during her studies.
    - is not likely to understand other people's point of view
    - uses a lot of "one should" and "one shouldnt", has clear assumptions about how people should behave and what they should do...
    - is rather traditional....family is an important value for her..... and she thinks everyone should have a family, I mean, start a family
    - likes to travel, likes going to museums etc., likes reading, but not too much of literature
    - likes cooking and is good at it



    (D) her boyfriend

    - very interested in other people and their motivation etc.
    - has a lot of crazy ideas and associations, makes a lot of nonsence connections between things, is very often very goofy
    - has studied to become a geography teacher in elementary school, but quit before his second exam because he became depressed and couldn't fulfill his own expectations
    - is now working at a publishing house (for educational books)
    - has a lot of friends and is always meeting someone
    - has worked with teenagers in his leisure time
    - has traveled a lot and lived abroad (studying in england, teaching in france)
    - is very spontaneous
    - does not want to think about tomorrow or the future (which annoys my friend)
    - does not care about traditional values such as (starting a) family
    - is very good at creating mind-maps with people and good at helping them structuring their papers etc.
    ( I think he would have been a good teacher, very enthusiastic and good at promoting his ideas and making other people interested in them)
    - my friend says he doesn't like to talk about his feelings or motivations etc.

    I thought he might be an ENFP as well. but I dont know if he is ever interested in theory, really..... I started talking about the MBTI with him, and he IMMEDIATELY said something like "and what is the use of doing this?" implying that he does not see any use in it. I was rather surprised, I wouldn't have expected that....well....I then thought ESFP, but...I DONT THINK THIS FITS. argh.


    I know this is really insufficient.....I am sorry. I'd appreciate any kind of help, though.... thanks in advance....

    I moved the thread to the 'Guess my type' section, just to be clear.

    1. I honestly think ENTP over ENFP.
    2. Like you said, insufficient information.
    3. ExFJ, perhaps?
    4. ENFP, I would think.

    A) enfj
    C) Could very well be esfj but need more info IMO.
    For instance:
    she really likes gossipping, and is really talks bad behind peoples' backs
    In what ways does she do this? Is she being critical about people or just pointing out flaws and even making them up as she goes along?

    I think she is extrelemy S.
    In what: her activities? Her conversations? Her mindset, P.O.Vs?

    is not likely to understand other people's point of view
    Dismisses their point of view or simply isn't able to understand?

    I'm leaning toward ES_J on this one.

    D) entp or enfp. Most likely the latter, but I have an ENTP friend who is very similar to that description.

    For instance:

    mh, she is really unfair about people often. can't explain that properly....maybe very judgemental, in a very negative way....pointing out people's flaws in a very condescending way, even though she may have that certain flaw herself....it's not really criticizing, I find it a lot meaner....I am also critical about people, but she is slagging (?) them, don't know if you say it like that.....


    In what: her activities? Her conversations? Her mindset, P.O.Vs?
    I wouldn't say in her activities. rather in her mindset.....mh.....but maybe she is only just not open-minded....maybe that's what I mean. I think she highly values rationality, being sensible, and does't really like imagination. it's hard to discribe.....she's very sensible....but then.....I'm beginning to think she could just be a T.....don't know...I have the feeling that she is S, but I can't really explain why....maybe she isn't.....


    Dismisses their point of view or simply isn't able to understand?
    that's a good question :-D! really hard to say as well..... I think she simply isn't able to understand..... but it's hard to say if she doesn't WANT to understand or simply isn't able to.....she is not trying to.... but, then....I don't really know..... maybe it's rather dismissing.....e.g. when her bf got depressive, she said he just has to pull himself together. and I said: but if he is depressive, that's the point, it's not merely a question of WILL. she wouldn't understand. to her, it's a question of will. when I told her I had not been able to "pull myself together" when I was depressive, she wouldn't understand. I found this very strange..... If she has not experienced it herself, she does not accept it to be true, or even CONSIDER it to be true.....that's what I mean.....

    I'm leaning toward ES_J on this one.
    I'm beginning to think she could be an ESTJ as well as an ESFJ......

    D) entp or enfp. Most likely the latter, but I have an ENTP friend who is very similar to that description.
    I'd lean towards ENFP, but.....hard to say. I think his Ne dominant function is clear to me :)...... somehow I think I get an NF-vibe from him, but....hard to say for sure.....

    Seeing how no one is actually forced to even acknowledge your thread, there's no reason to apologize. Thank you for the puzzle, but I wish there was more contradicting information.

    Person A - ENTJ: She doesn't sound easygoing enough to be P, and her not caring about what others think makes her unlikely to be an F.

    Person B - ?NT?: Right now I can only guess NT because of the mathematics and computers, but even that can't be guaranteed.

    Person C - ESFJ: She tested as it for a reason... I doubt she's even capable of understanding what the test was for.

    Now for the most interesting out of them all!

    Person D - E?TP: I'm guessing either ENTP or ESTP. The reason being this...

    - has a lot of crazy ideas and associations, makes a lot of nonsence connections between things, is very often very goofy
    - does not want to think about tomorrow or the future (which annoys my friend)

    Because of this and other minor clues, I was unable to decide between S and N.

    The first says N, the other says not N. As for the T...

    - does not care about traditional values such as (starting a) family
    - has studied to become a geography teacher in elementary school, but quit before his second exam because he became depressed and couldn't fulfill his own expectations

    Both say not F. F's are less likely to question traditions. Someone that quits because he "couldn't fulfill his own expectations", sounds like a guy with principles. Which screams T.

    The E and P seem rather obvious.
