Heyy guys,

I got here from .. I forgot how exactly I got here but it has something to do with other forum about mental health I suppose.

Anyways brief background I'm 26 y/o, a BSW student (socialwork) ..
I love life most of the time, sometimes I hate it yeah..
I love music, I love many kinds of music, I love blues and I also play music (guitar)
I love traveling, I admire mother nature, I love animals and I'm vegan :)

I'm really surprised there is a forum like this one with a big-focus on the personality types, perhaps something to do with the fact that I just started to read 2 books on Carl Jung .. I heard about him in one of my lectures or sth and was fascinated so.. here I am lol

I had different tests (MBTI) and received different results each time, this time I got ENFP (forgot the other times), I think it's because I usually refer to the test questions with information that I recently accumulated by experience.
Like if there are questions about big assignments so I refer to my recent ones, or if a question is about some social situation, I refer to my recent social occurrences but that might not be very accurate cuz I might have been influenced by some other factors .. like being with friends when something else is on my mind, specific goal, different kind of people etc..etc... anyways...

Cheers :)

And you're an unknown .. a mystery, a puzzle, will you tell me in private ? xD

Ne's are random ? I'm quite new to the whole personality types thing. although it is fascinating.

Do you know about the cognitive functions and read the description of your functions? XD

Your humour is so random and the way you go off on tangents reminds me so much of Ne.

ENFP = Ne Fi Te Si

 
Ne, or extroverted iNtuition, is dominant for ENxP, secondary for INxP, tertiary for ESxJ and inferior for ISxJ. It is an outwardly exploratory attitude that encourages us to change, reinvent and experiment with the external world in order to find new and interesting combinations and patterns. Ne looks for novel outcomes and imagines how the things around you could be changed into other, more interesting things. Ne sees new information as part of a larger, emerging, as of yet unseen pattern that extends far beyond the self, and whose meaning will continue to change as the context grows and we discover more of the all-encompassing pattern. Rather than directly confront an issue, Ne will often broaden the context until the issue seems insignificant by comparison to the much bigger and more expansive ideas it imagines.

As with all extroverted functions, Ne needs to be validated by external/objective information to have meaning. So Ne users will often have many ideas very quickly but not know if they're good until they hear other people's reactions to them, or have a chance to experiment and see what happens. Ne wants very badly to be understood and appreciated by others. Note that Ne songwriters (e.g. Brandon Boyd, ENFP) will typically write enough context clues and such into their work that you can put the pieces together and infer what they were thinking when they wrote it. They want others to put the pieces together and get it.

Oh, yes yes !

I've just read about the dominant auxiliary 3rd function and the inferior.
Honestly ? I'm drowning with all this information, partially because although I got the ENFP with 3 tests from different sites, I'm still not entirely complete with this, I mean... sometimes I really think I'm an introvert ...

I badly want to be understood by others, when someone is able to para-phrase me or reflect on what I mean/feel/say, I feel very good. as well as I need other's opinions sometimes to get a sense about my idea.
For example, I came up with this idea of relating Carl Jung's theory about the collective unconscious to my research-work on Veganism and Social work.. I really need my lecturer's approval on this, otherwise I think I'm manic... well this has to do with my Cyclothymia though and... hmm

At times I feel very aware of the present moment, thinking just what is. This is a meditation.
At times I'm really tired of being with people and want to have a break, although it has something to do with being around people that are boring to me and demanding, I actually crave being around people that are interesting to me.

MINDBLOWN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In fact, I thought about more stuff that are probably NOT characterized in ENFP
I'm not very socially popular, people 'love' me and I make people laugh, I make kind make performances, but I don't have many people that I keep contact with personally n stuff. like Hello what's up we can have a conversation that ends very quickly, why ? because they are quite boring to me and too CASUAL.

I would not take a girl to a club/pub on a date, I would rather go to the sea, have some time alone, bond, connect.
Last girl I was with, I really didn't want to go on any friend-parties, one time what happened is I lost her too many times, like I get hooked speaking to someone else or Dancing that I forget about her for a moment and... when honestly all I wanna do is be with her and screw everything else.
Other time I remember wooing some girl when we were in the sea with other friends, she kinda rejected me and OMG!!! I couldn't think of anything but her not paying the attention I needed. I couldn't be socializing, I turned inside myself, like 100% Introverted ??

Does it say anything that I'm not ENFP or whatever ? Thanks ;D

I'm glad I helped. Hope you understand more about yourself now.

As for your type, I think nothing points to you not being an ENFP from this description. In fact, ENFPs are called the "most introverted extrovert" and has a 2 faced personality, going by the stereotypes.

But of course, I am not the one to ask because I am not an ENFP myself. Maybe you can head to ENFP Forum - The Inspirers and ask your questions there.

Good luck. :wink:

Yeah I'm already cruising there, it's way more fun talking to you though !

I've found this webpage with 25 Struggles Only ENFPs Will Understand, can totally identify with the stuff written, I'd post a link but I need 15 posts to do so, uh.

My boyfriend is an ENFP as well. I observed him for 2+ years so I understand you guys from an outsider perspective ^^ I don't really know what you guys think in your mind though. So unpredictable.

Lol I've just seen the introduction to top stress factors in jobs for INTJ's isfj's and enfp's ... that common jobs described were; bartenders, reporters, waiters, public relation specialists, college-professors... omg I would never imagine myself as a bartender or waiter, or any of the jobs there except maybe College Professor .. that wud mean I reached the genius level in academy :D:D which is something I think I want ( right now!) .. I'm studying social work, and thought about continuing in the field of psychotherapy, specializing in trauma, addiction maybe... REPORTER ?????? what...

what is your type of personality ? the last girl I was with... she was .. I've no idea actually... she would quite open and not discrete but kind of shy/quiet nature, she's a dreamer, she loves being in her own thoughts and fantasies, hates limitations, hates order and rules, spontaneous and 'worships' freedom (ironic he?) damn I'm in love with her still ? :D I would guess, just a guess ; INFP/INFJ :p

What is your type selena ?

Oh the unknown and mysterious one :)

Considering the way you go on and on, reporter and writer would be good careers for you :laughing: just joking.

INFP and INFJ are actually very different in terms of the cognitive functions we discussed above (they share none of the functions), despite being only 1 letter apart. If you want to know her type, you can take a look here:
INFP vs INFJ: 5 Surprising Differences To Tell Them Apart : Personality Hacker
INFP: Fi Ne Si Te
INFJ: Ni Fe Ti Se

Anyhow, if she was an INFP she would share Ne with you. I heard Ne users say that they would feel a sense of camaraderie towards other Ne users. Not sure if that is the case, since I am not one myself.

Tests consistently say that I'm an INTJ and I identified with it for 2 years. Lately I'm having doubts about my type, so I put unknown for now.

WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW [email protected]!!!!!!!!

This is a world of a difference, over what ? 1 letter, INF J/P God !
This is so complex, yet freaking fascinating ! I can't stop reading, I just hope I won't forget everything in a second after.

The more I read the more I get lost :(
