Ok, well the parts I highlighted make me think you might be ENFP. Especially the quirky/humor thingoh...DUH. (I'm out of it today.) I'm very much so an outgoing person, but even more than that, I love adventure and new things! (I'm an adrenaline junkie!) At the same time though, there are moments were I love to just sit in silence and think. I don't think someone has to be talking all the time...silence is necessary sometimes. I'm very quirky and can have a very sporatic sense of humor and I LOVE making people laugh. (I crave it sometimes. It's my way of validation I suppose.) I'm studying Psychology and Therapuetic Recreation. I once read every single book in our school library and love to argue. ....yup. That's me in a nut shell. :laughing:
I have a feeling you're 2 years late.ESFPs and ENFPs can be very similar! I'm a definite ENFP (Ne constantly spinning out of control ) but I go through phases where my actions are VERY ESFP-esque. (A) I am a HUGE adrenaline junkie - not sure where that comes from but I'm big-time into extreme sports/getting that rush! (B) My E and P are both very pronounced, meaning I tend to get so excited about things that I'll act very impulsively/without thinking.
I'd say the main difference is the thought patterns. ENFPs like to spend time analyzing and fitting the things they've done into the "bigger picture" whereas ESFPs prefer to move right on to the next activity. ENFPs and ESFPs tend to DO a lot of the same things, but ENFPs like to have a specific reason or meaning attached to almost everything they do whereas ESFPs tend to seek out experiences for their in-the-moment value.
Anyways, that's just personal experience - my ESFP ex-boyfriend and I used to travel together and the differences became pronounced - we were both adrenaline junkies but for him it was about the physical sensations involved, for me it was more about pushing my limits and the personal growth that came along with it.
Not sure if any of that helps... your posts sounds more ENFP than ESFP to me, but also remember that it's quite possible (even common) to be right on the line with certain traits! Maybe you're just an EXFP - in which case way to have balance!
