    it's a valid question, and imo viable when there's a reasonable level of static from this kind of thing. when it feels like it's gotten louder than the signal itself, i think it's just as valid to be really annoyed. i've been trying to figure out a why to make auto-ignore work for me, and realised in the process that i'd probably not only have to ban 8 out of every 10 enfps individually; i'd also have to take out quite a few intj posters too, for the 'ignore' to be meaningful. the dispiriting thing is this kind inner-city-creating kind of effect, where before you know it something that had been worthwhile gets abandoned by everyone but the fluff-hounds:

    Otherwise, it feels like somebody holding me down and displacing all my thoughts with Styrofoam peanuts.
    this. about sixty-nine thousand times this. experiencing this effect in an area that is supposedly 'for' my own type brings it over into the area of my mind where i keep my definition of manners. i don't respect or appreciate anyone who wanders into a different community's turf and makes it overwhelmingly all about them and their own interest levels, with nothing but a merry cry of 'well, just don't listen then!' if some of the locals complain. as if it was rude of them to object.

    i've noticed a couple things too, which makes the whole thing at least a bit interesting on the sociological front:

    a) hell of a lot of enfp women in here, it seems like.
    b) hell of a lot more intj women than men who seem unimpressed by the charm
    c) wonder what would happen in enfp-world if all the fans moved the love-fest into that turf for a change, and how the denizens there would react.

    @lilysocks and other INTJ's, I can relate to this. Before joining I lurked around different threads for quite a while, and would get annoyed if a good thread was derailed by any type. I'm generally fascinated with people and do gravitate toward certain types, but interjecting with constant smothering is another thing. Also I don't like other ENFP centered forums because of this. That being said, do understand that there are ENFP women (and men) out there who are not all cotton-candy fluff.

    To a certain extent, I think it also has to do with how much the person buys into their "type". Some people (not saying all or any of the ENFP's here) are more likely to think that he or she applies to the attributes, instead of the other way around. It's like saying "Oh, I'm XXXX type, so I should be this way." or "It's okay that I'm like this, because I'm an XXXX." So in the case of an ENFP who is not self-aware, it can be easy to slip into a fluffiness as a stereotype than as a genuine reaction.

    I think that this is a trapping of types in general, just more so with ENFP's because of our prevalence on this forum.

    I honestly would like to hear the opinions of the other extroverts as well; I just seem to be seeing the same boring and redundant responses from the ENFPs; I'm just sick of the redundancy.

    My hypothesis is that ENFPs are jealous and obsessed with INTJs. Anybody else agree? What are your thoughts?
    Well, the reason is similar to the other extroverted feeling types. It's like in the Wizard of Oz, they want a brain(we want a heart but that's another debate).
    No, ENFPs are not jealous at us (ESFJ/ENFJ would qualify for that), and unlike their ESFP cousins, lack a real life, thus are stuck on this subforum looking for brains.
    Problem being, we get nothing in return most of the times, but hell, we're nice guys afterall

    EDIT: I realized I just want vodka.

    It's true, we have no life. I'm not even a real person.

    I think our brains are scattered and we are looking for bits and pieces in other people.

    That is a compliment. We like to leech off of your brains.

    Meanwhile hopefully integrating that our own system and thinking for ourselves.

    i'm pretty sure i'd agree. and if there are intj's out there, poncing around in other fora and dismissing genuine input from the locals with the same kinds of 'don't be stupid, you know you guys really [yadayada] us intjs', then i'd be thinking 'serves them all right' if the locals rose up with pitchforks and made their dislike inescapably clear.

    Well, yeah, that's not very useful to us, but then again it's not damaging, so enjoy :P.

    EDIT: If you'd buy me vodka, I may actually like you more :P.

    Why are ENFPs more prevalent in the INTJ forum than other types? Probably because of the ENFP-INTJ connection that has been reported, re-reported, re-re-reported and so on. But I suspect this is heavily from the INTJ side, strangely enough. Give an INTJ something to investigate, something that piques our interest because it is so strange as to defy convention but not so strange as to be unbelievable - like 'ENFPs are your perfect match, and others don't really come close' - and we're drawn to the idea like moths to a flame. We have to break it apart and investigate it to discover if it really is true. So the natural curiosity of INTJs draws them to the ENFP forum to poke around. And I'm sure that more than a few ENFPs have come over as a result. Anyway, that's my guess.

    That being said, I think there's something to the NT-NF connection in general that isn't confined to INTJ-ENFP.

    Let's see...

    Girl met a guy... SPARKLE SPARKLE ! amazing connection, WTF is this ?
    time passed and the level of *amaziness* just increases and increases and it seems, as you said "something that piques our interest because it is so strange as to defy convention but not so strange as to be unbelievable for both...

    yada yada yada one day girl is doing nothing, browsing around the Internet and gets a link "test your personality"...
    she tries and gets ENFP - hummm.. what's that ?
    let me share with him !

    See, I got this, what is yours ?

    "Oh, I'm an INTJ" - is the answer... nothing else
    (but of course he was tested years before that, officially with a psychologist and everything, studied books and books about it and had figured out yours since the first time you've [s]kissed[/s] met)

    Then he gives you little hints "you know, it seems our personalities match a lot" ...
    Girls says, out of the initial ignorance of what those letters really mean, Why is that ? we share only one letter...
    not enough data to convince me
    :-P

    Girl goes home but the thought still flying above her head, the seed has found fertile ground !!!

    ...
    and that's why we are here
    :-D
    hunting each and everyone of your delicious tasty (sometimes bitter but well, life is not perfect) brain, dear INTJs
    because you guys are aaaaaaaaaaawesome !
    and we are aaaaaaaawwwwwwwweeeeeesome together !

    I think it has to do with population, really. A lot of people on this site are introverted intuitives (I mean.. internet forums are just the perfect environment for introverted intuitives to flourish... so naturally you find a lot of them here) and I think ENFPs tend to gravitate toward other people.

    I mean, have you been to the ENFP subsection? There are nowhere near as many ENFPs on this site as there are INTJs (understandably.. I think extroverted types are more recharged in their daily activities than introverted types are. Browsing an internet forum alone is a pretty introverted thing to do...) So I mean I think it just makes sense that they would find this subsection more interesting-- It's more active!

    I mean if it were reverse -- if the INTJ section were dead and the ENFP section had a lot of interesting topics in it, I would go over there a lot, too.
