    ENFP's out there: how did you learn to trust your intuition?

    Hello fellow MBTI'ers!

    I mostly test as ENFP, though I lean more towards the introverted side of the spectrum, so I don't really fit what seems to be the "classic" outward manifestation of an ENFP. I'm more of a quiet explorer/seeker, but I really connect with the description of the ENFP profile and feel that it most closely matches me.

    I've spent most of my life committing to things with one foot out the door. I often change my mind abruptly about a person, job or situation and find myself wanting to pursue the next thing. Now that I'm in my late 20's, I've learned to reign in this spontaneity and pursuit of novelty a bit-- but it's still a big part of who I am.

    My biggest moral dilemma currently is learning to distinguish true intuition about certain situations vs. a desire to be constantly stimulated with a "grass is greener" mentality. For example, I've been in a long-term relationship for 5 years now, but often find myself daydreaming of being single and the excitement of pursuing a new love interest. I find myself doing this in all areas of my life, which makes me wonder if maybe I am just a total commitment-phob who will always be seeking something new. It's a scary thought.

    On the other hand, I wonder if my intuition about situations is accurate and if I should listen to that feeling of desire. It is all so confusing!

    Right now, I'm looking for advice from fellow ENFP's or other NF's who find themselves constantly seeking and embarking on both literal and figurative journeys in their life to discover who they are. Have you learned an effective way to determine when you have a true fear of commitment and being tied down vs. when your intuition is correct? Any advice would be so welcomed.

    ENFP

    Most of what you described, sounds to me rather stereotypical ENFP description found in many places :) I have that need for seeking new concepts and exploration too but it's not related to lack or fear of commitment - in most important aspects of life (relationships, work etc) I'm very committed and can handle things in very long term - don't need to switch workplace often and I've been only in long term relationships.

    Haven't had reason to not trust intuition either - usually observations it makes seem to be correct. On the other hand I've never had much focusing issues so my case could be a bit different. One thing though which I've learned during my lifetime - those desires and constant cravings for new would not end when you reach to where you want - it only postpones it and same situation tends to repeat (grass would seem still greener somewhere else) :) One solution in my opinion is to try to find some inner peace within yourself and focus more on what things are not only what they could be :)
