i think it's because i want a change of scene and mentality. after a while of socialising it starts to feel like same old same old a little bit - unless it's in a place i've just come to where the novelty lasts a while - and i start feeling "bored" somehow. when i get a while of alone time i can feel interested in ppl again cos it gives some sense of change. too much continuity is the problem i reckon..

just sitting here watching the tennis and doing some internal reflection.. :proud:

Do you suppose this happens because we've finally collected all the information on a subject? In other words, our intuition has finally gone as far as it can go. Now it is judgement time....

I want time alone to reset my internal compass. When you're out with so many people doing so many things you can loose yourself. It wouldn't be a big concern if I was an ESTP like my brother, but when you have an introverted-feeler inside like I do, it calls for that time of relaxation and reflection.

its good to have a balance between the energy that is expressed in the outdoors and when you need to gain a deeper understanding of your experiences by spending time alone intropecting

actually yeah.. cheers guys thats actually it. im in that state atm, just knackered and cos i've been chatting to all different ppl i feel like my internal "soul" is faded a little. i just need time to be in MY head right now and not a whole bunch of other ppls so that i can regain that sense of ME.

if that made no sense whatsoever im just saying that i know what you mean.

im not quite sure what you mean but ill try n answer anyway..

if im in a "fake" environmnet, if i feel myself acting fake, and if my friends are feeling unhappy. those things are like a "turn off"- suddenly the world gets more grim.
so your determined by your social environment? if ppl are happy then that makes you happy, if your ppl are sad then that makes you sad

well.. specifically my FRIENDS who i feel a bond with.. if they're unhappy i've got to try and make them feel better. i do that by trying to empathise with them and telling them what they need to hear to feel better, or by being there for them.

basically yeah.. i'd sayyyy.. 80% of my happiness is based around my interactions with other ppl? that and my authenticity to myself and my morals.

are you trying to "figure us out" then?..
i feel so analyzed.. :tongue:

lol im sorry that you feel analysed

i am trying to understand you and im a bit confused as to why enfp's make the decisions they do at times.

they can make very aggressive and irresponsible decisions that hurt ppl that they dont care about while remaining totally obedient to others. it can be puzzling to predict how they will react when they do

I don't believe that this is a quality that solely belongs to ENFPs. I think this behavior pretty much spans across the board and might have a bit more to do with maturity.

i think that this quality can be expressed uniquely in an ENFP way.

if you look at the conscious cognitive dynamic of an ENFP, the functions are EN, IF, ET, IS - this doesnt have EF, which is an INTP like me rely on as a social check and balance.

it can be very annoying if an overwelmed ENFPs can act irreverant to this need for social communication, in my exp at least.

sorry if this is too technical :)

id love to learn what a healthy, mature ENFP does under pressure to communicate their feelings so that their friends can understand them :)

I got this alot. I believe alot of people try to *analyze* our decision making sequence.

I can't explain it vaguely and generally, but maybe if you give me some example or guidelines to talk about, I'd love to help you on your *quest*. I too am interested in a thorough Ti analysis. :]

i can understand that you'd be confused. hell im not too clear on why im so random. it's just that if i hurt someone im not close to then i know they're going to get over it, although i often feel guilty afterward. im aware that i can get overly conscientious and see it as a fault when i use it too much, so often ill let things slide with ppl i don't care that much about.

i think it has a lot to do with my morals as well. if i sense that someone doesn't swing to what i believe in ill automatically distance myself a little from them and won't care nearly as much if i hurt them. often i've been self destructive in the past by believing in a line of thinking- which is more naive than anything.

Meh. I love paradigm shifts. If you can be a catalyst for one I'd probably fall in love with you.

ye, I'm talking about people who just keep shooting down everything new you come up with. Changing your perspective, now *that* is cool :D
