Hmmmm okay. So I went over the whole post.
Allow me to validate my response quick here. I am ENTP (obv). I was raised
by ENFP sisters, 3 of them, as tested. I believe my grandmother was an ENFP as well
yet that is untested so I cant be certain.
The greatest rift I see between my ENFP family and myself is the ability to rationalize
items based on fact vs emotion. Myself, I will back onto the logic of each situation
my ENFP family works more on how items are making people feel and move forward that
way. For myself it need not be a good feeling. Actually the feelings, if the solution
is the right solution are quite irrelevant to me, my own feelings included.
My ENFP's? Well that does not fly so much.
You will notice this more in arguments/bad times vs good times scenarios.
I dont know how to explain it exactly but I will try and sum it up in one ramble.
ENTP/ENFP are flighty, fluid and very malleable. The are insightful and
observant. They have a lot of the same traits for sure. But I tend to
use those traits in a more tactile logical way and ENFP tend to use them in a
more feeling blended way. It starts with the feels and moves out
where I start with the hard logic and move out from that. The one item that
may make us seem similar is that we use the same tools we just build a different
house. If that makes any sense. So it is completely understandable that we get
mistyped a ton.
Heavy Fe ENTP will come of remarkably strong like an ENFP.
Heavy Te ENFP may come off like an ENTP.
There is the obvious monstrous difference that ENFP can actually understand
their own feelings. ENTP have massive issues with this. Yes we can read others feelings
and work on that but when it comes to ourselves? We suck. Bad. It takes a lot
of work for an ENTP to first recognize the effects of an emotion never mind deciding what
that emotion actually is. That is something we all have issue with even the heavy Fe
ENTP. ENFP do not have this issue. ENTP will also rationalize away emotions and deem them irrelevant.
This is a pro and a con. Sometimes it saves us a lot of undue grief other times it makes us
miss out on some of the best feels out there.
On the other hand I see the ENFP in my life make drastic and life altering decisions in a
knee jerk fashion based on a fleeting feeling. A lot of the times this serves them well yet
other times it is very counter productive. Very. They will also tend to offer too much
opinion on feelings and how to adjust or deal with a feeling. Its intrusive at times and
far to feel-y.
I am a very heavy Fe laden ENTP. Furthermore, I am actively trying to work on
my feelings and recognition of. I come off very ENFP like given the right situation.
SO I spoke on the differences I see between ENFP and ENTP.
What is it you are looking for really here? Just talking about
types ? Or are you looking for advice on how to move forward with
this ENTP in a romantic way?
