Hello BugFolk! It´s TurtleFolkI'm a bit sleep deprived posting this.
Personality wise I'm somewhere between an INFP and an INTP. I suspect I would be more INFP, but I also have autism, which I think may have a factor. Either I am an INTP who developed the F as a way to adapt or I would be an INFP without the autism. Hard to know. Either way, when I take a test I get one or the other. INFP slightly more frequent. I can identify with both types depending on my mindset for the moment.
I've been up a lot researching personality stuff for my writing.
I desire to make believable characters.
I'm working on a series dealing with bug people.
I have a few questions.
One is is it even feasible to have an ENFJ type character serving in a military setting if the circumstances call for it? Like the colony he's in is under constant attack, and survival of the colony depends on having nearly every "major worker cast" serving in their army. I imagine the character's coping strategy (after recovering from alcoholism triggered by his first battle experience) is to dissociate and create an alter ego and act as that alter ego (an ESTJ/ENTJ) in battle. He makes up his own reasoning (by convincing himself the enemy is evil, based on some of their actions and treating his soldiers like they are his friends unless they cross him or "don't work up to their potential", then his ESTJ persona kicks in.) It hurts him to kill, but he does so. Resents himself, and suffers PTSD like symptoms.
I tried to research to find anyone who has served that is an ENFJ and well came up blank. I'm not surprised. But I do want to make my story believable, so I hope there is some realistic possibility.
Welcome to this forum
Don´t worry, after a while you will be used to write and read here in your dreams ^^
Have you read about the 8 functions too?
Cool ideas for that series do you have there, but I am an ISTP, else I could have helped out. But we have the ENFJ Section, and pehaps they will answer you there, if they are not too busy with the world outside.
If you have any questions to this forum, just ask!
