DISCLAIMER: this is a totally off the top of the head, crackpot theory that I just made up, so don't talk to me about how this theory doesn't fit in with the works of Jung because I don't want to hear it!

DISCLAIMER II: yes, it's biased as hell. get over it! :laughing:

anyway, let's begin ^_^

ENFP Earth Subtype
the most subdued and (as the name implies) "down to earth" subtype. this subtype tends to be is the most realistic of the ENFPs. less prone to the bizarre, up in the clouds fantasies of other ENFPs, the ideas of this ENFP tend to be more realistic/tangible, and, as such, this subtype has the easiest time making their ideas a reality of all the ENFP subtypes. their go with the flow approach to life as well as their subdued and cooperative nature make them an asset to any team or group project, in which their innovative ideas and ability to see multiple perspectives are generally highly sought after.

Correlations:
- 9s
- Sp/So, So/Sp, So/Sx
- Phlegmatic

Ideal Careers:
- Journalist
- project manager
- graphic designer

Examples:
- Sandra Bullock
- Ellen Degeneres

ENFP Water Subtype
the most gentle and sensitive of the ENFP subtypes. this type is frequently mistaken for an xxFJ type and has a natural talent for taking care of people. similarly, they often play the "therapist" in their social circle and tend to be regarded as wise, caring and virtuous. male ENFPs of this subtype may suffer discrimination due to their demeanor being traditionally considered more "feminine", but to those whom appreciate their less typical range of talents, the ENFP Water subtype makes a loyal and supportive friend.

Correlations:
- 2s, 9s
- So/Sx, Sx/So, Sx/Sp
- Supine

Ideal Career Options:

ENFP Wind Subtype
the most common ENFP subtype. this ENFP is almost always happy and optimistic about life as a whole. they tend to be flexible and opportunistic, always ready for whatever life brings them. they tend to have a wide range of interests and often excel at several of them. another asset to this subtype is their high energy level and adaptability. these ENFPS excel at diving into new situations, learning the ropes quickly and working in a fast paced, dynamic environment.

ENFP Fire Subtype
the most aggressive and intense ENFP subtype. this type is likely to have a loud, expressive voice and tends to get noticed whether consciously or unconsciously. unlike the more subdued subtypes of ENFP, this ENFP is very outspoken and direct and makes their opinions and beliefs know to all (in fact, it's usually so obvious, the ENFP Fire subtype usually doesn't even need to voice their opinion for people to know what they think...but they usually do anyway). this subtype is also the most at home in conflict of all the subtypes and, assuming they're learned to control their Fi and not get overly heated, generally enjoy a good debate or controversy. people of this subtype tend to have a "love'em or hate'em" quality to them, inspiring lots of people and pissing off even more.

Bolded everything I could relate to. This was fun to think about, and made me realize I really need to get on pursuing my dream career of Opera singing (I kid, I kid- about the latter). I think out of all the careers listed, advocate is the one that most appeals to me.

*sighs* I do have a bit of fire in me, but I try to keep it down.. hahahah
Fairly good assessment, though.
makes sense (you are an aspiring entrepreneur after all). the hallmark a more extreme fire subtype is that they don't keep it down, or, at the very least, they have great difficulty doing so when necessary.
PS: if you were a pokemon type though, I think you'd be electric :laughing:
