    I'm an INFJ actress and artist(pencil and charcoal drawings). I'm a great communicator but novel and short story writing is too time-consuming and complicated for me.

    ENFP - The Inspirers

    From what I have observed about the ENFPs I know irl, and some here on the boards, it seems that a lot of them take up some form of writing, music, or photography, with writing popping up the most.

    ENFJ - acting, film, writing screenplays & novels
    INFJ - film, photography, writing poetry & novels
    INFP - writing poetry & novels, music, drawing/painting
    ENFP - writing poetry & novels, music, acting

    I think any of the NFs might do any of the arts though... They are all heavily associated with writing, and the INFx with fine arts and ENFx with performing arts.

    I agree. I really like the ENFJ/screenplay writing and acting choice. That seems to fit all of the ENFJs I know. The ENFPs are less likely to engage in solitary endeavors (although it's been known to happen). INFPs like poetry/fiction, of course (being one myself, I also admit I adore acting...if I'm going to empathize with fictional characters anyway, I might as well do something productive about it). But I think it's true that NFs in general are probably easily associated with any of the arts. I love them all (except photography...I'm way too mechanically inept).

    Music music music music :D

    I'm relatively bad at pretty much any other kind of art. I'm okay-ish at certain kinds of dancing, and I think I might be able to write poetry but I haven't really tried much.

    But MUSIC. Music I get. I'm terrible at composing it, unfortunately, but I'm good at transcribing and arranging, and I'm a pretty good performer. :) (I have great difficulty in assessing how good I am at performing because I never like my performances, but I audition into groups that, as a whole, are quite talented, so I suppose I must be pretty decent. XP)

    Anyway, I don't yet know enough about other types to be able to weigh in much on which types might be better at or more drawn to which forms of art, but I rather agree with @OrangeAppled in that any NFs might do any type of art, but with some slight tendencies toward preferring specific forms. :)

    Also, relating to what @Singing Silence said about ENFPs being "less likely to engage in solitary endeavors", I definitely identify with that - I love singing in groups, and hate soloing. XD Same with instrumental stuff, for the most part.

    An ENFP's art form is conversation.

    I, as an INFP, like to write theoretical type stuff, like persuasions. I also like to document real life.

    I do enjoy photography as well. And computer graphic stuff..

    The main thing is, that I can't stay focused on any one thing for too long.

    Also, my INFJ friend likes more fiction writing and also computer based art. He's got a great creative mind.

    I'm an INFJ songwriter, and musician. I write mostly folk songs these days, and when writing punk songs, I get told they read like folk songs, quite a bit.
    I also did some writing in and out of college, but it was mostly philosophical, or non fiction political/social theory.

    What are your takes? How do you reason? Feel free to add what art forms you Personally prefer.
    That's weird. I feel like you need a hefty lot of Fi to really 'get' a character. That's probably why most actors are FPs. And since as an actor, you would be spending most of your days, from sunrise till dawn, with other people, extraversion makes more sense, as an introvert would get drained. Keanu Reeves, Meg Ryan, Robin Williams, etc.
    So,
    ENFP - Acting

    We get to fiction and we have the same problem. Fi helps with giving emotional depth to characters and situations. Fi lets you the see beauty in everything. Ne helps with creating interesting and funny characters and situations. INFPs are, like ENFPs, very creative. Writing is the natural career of INFPs. They're excellent verbal communicators. Most famous writers are INFPs. Tolkien, JK Rowling, A. A. Milne and Laura Ingalls Wilde to namy a few. This list of famous INFPs is mostly made up by writers. As a side note, I, as an ENFP, love writing. In my native language. But I also love interacting with people so sitting in my room and writing for 8 hours straight isn't exactly my idea of fun. So while NFPs in general are good at writing, INFPs are better suited for the level of social isolation it takes to finish a large work.
    INFP - Fiction

    INFJs? My cousin is/was a painter. She's now a apprentice hair dresser. Anyway, she made very few works of her own. I never saw any of it, well a pic on her phone, but what I did see was tons and tons of copies of other people's work. She admitted it herself that she's not very creative. Se helps with copying other people's work, of course. Gives her great attention to details like colors, lighting, contours, etc. I'm into drawing/painting myself but I hate copying. It's tedious and unrewarding. I'll be walking around and suddenly a entire new picture pops up in my head that relates to something that has happened/a feeling/a concept, etc. However, this attention to colors, lighting, etc gives the INFJ a great natural advantage in photography.
    INFJ - Photography

    Lastly, we come to music. Now, a lot of musicians have been mistyped. People equate shyness and "weird-ness" with introversion. Plus, this is the internet, home of the introverts and so there's a lot of relating bias going on. With that said, a lot of popular, mainstream musicians are ENFJs. They have plenty of Se to help them shape their style, physical presentation, dance, etc. Fe gives them the ability to play that stage role very effectively. Ni makes sense for musical creativity. Every song is a system. And Ni is there to perfect it. Lady Gaga, Marilyn Manson and Bono are good examples of ENFJ singers. On the internet, many people, especially INFJs, type Manson as their own type. Manson is the ultimate attention whore. INFJs are very private people. He also has that extraverted wherewithal to react to every weird situation that comes along on the shows. Like the time a guy jumped up on stage and he stimulated a sexual act with him. He's also very quick to respond in interviews and can think on his feet. I think, as the frontman of one of the most famous bands of the 90s, Manson as an introvert would get very drained, very quickly. But extraverted Manson loved every last bit of it. And a lot of the above applies to Gaga, as well.
    ENFJ - Music
