Hi! I'm Cris, I'm 23 and I'm Spanish. I have an ENFP 2w3 personality. I've found this great community while I was learning through the Internet about the MBTI. It's so interesting! And it really helps me to understand myself and other people better.

I've found the Myers-Briggs personality types when I was looking for a personality test (I've always LOVED doing personality test, in general haha). I've found the 16 personality test and, the first time, I got an INFP. Then, I've discovered the MBTI thing and I started searching more and more about it. When I did the test again, I got an ENFP personality, and now it doesn't change anytime that I repeat the personality test. I was confused about it, because I really get overwhelmed when I spend too much time with other people, and I instantly need to be alone, to rest and to reflect. Also, I was bullied at school when I was 11 by a teacher and after that, by classmates, for almost 4 years. This awful experience really traumatized me about socializing for many years.

Nowadays, I'm totally recovered from the bullying experience (thanks to my really supportive family and friends, some therapy and researching). But, for years, I had suffered from anxiety and panic attacks. I though that I was just really shy and weird, when, I've never been as shy naturally; it was a really bad social anxiety. So, it's normal that I've developed some introverted habits to survive when I was so lonely, but I'm naturally extroverted. Now that I finally socialize naturally, I know that my post-traumatic experience have confused me about my introversion-extroversion.

On the other hand, I'm a only daughter and I've always had a wild imagination and I have a really absurd, sarcastic and goofy humor. Moreover, I'm hypersensitive, and I have a very deep and wide interior own world; I'm a very artistic and creative person. I think that's why I really thought that I was an INFP, but now i know I'm an ENFP, and I embrace that! Maybe I'm not THAT extroverted (maybe I'm an ambiverted?) but I'm a really really social person. I'm always thinking about other people, about trully connect with others, and about how can I use my skills to try to make the world a better place and help those who need it.

It felt really good to write a summary of some of my life experiences as an ENFP who overthinks all the time, haha.

I hope we can learn together here. This community looks amazing!

See you soon :kirby: .

Heyo! You replied to my intro thread already, and I just saw yours haha

I can relate to a lot of what you said, actually! I personally thought I was INTP because I spent so much time alone growing up, but now I realize it wasn't really by choice. Really early on in my schooling I was bullied by teachers and peers, and the rejection and fear made me isolate and retract, which caused a ton of harm. I only just recently started trying to get better, so I still struggle a lot. I'm hoping to improve with experience and become extroverted again.

I think it's cool you're thinking about how to make the world better and helping people :rockon:

Bullying is so destroying ... but at least, nowadays it's a real thing and children have more help, but I didn't know that it even existed when it happened to me. It's so unfair that it happened to you too! If you're a natural extroverted, you'll see that your natural socializing abilities are going to develop while you meet new people and have new experiences!

Hello and welcome *gives new member an adorable neko-person*


At first I read this as " Oh, luna hispana" :laughing:
Hi! Thank you! haha :)

Welcome, Cris. I have seen ENFPs called the most introverted extroverts, so I think many see themselves an ambivert. INFPs are more likely to be deeply introverted.

I loathe bullying and was neither immune to it nor particularly popular in primary school, besides with my own little group of friends. I had a easier time in secondary school, high school for Americans, and I really enjoyed my time at university.

A lot of celebrities and public figures have come forward about their own experiences with bullying and I'm glad people are taking it seriously now.
