Never.

I used to have them though and it was mostly related to desire for x→ unfulfilled expectations→frustrations→emotional outbursts. Pathetic, right?
No, because if an amazing person such as myself has done the same thing, it must be okay. In spite of the blunt phrasing I used, I was wondering if you guys have better control of your emotions.

Not much at all to be honest... Though I suppose it depends massively on how unhappy, insecure etc I have been feeling.
The closest thing to an emotional breakdown I've had that I can remember (it's been THAT long... lol) is an angry/frustration one. I get those easily if I'm being controlled by someone, or if a problem I am trying to resolve is refusing to go away no matter what option I take to end it. But other than that, my emotions are relatively stable : )

How often do you have emotional breakdowns?

I can't answer this for all the of the ENFPs though.

However, I am very well in control of my emotions because I know where they - my emotions - are coming from and where the emotions of others are coming from as well. It's a matter of being able to discern patterns. Maybe it's because I am a 1w9 so I will do anything to make sure that I do the right thing and I think I am more detached than the 4s and 7s. Doing the right can is something you can only do if you are clear headed. If not, then don't act. Inferior emotions can only lead to conflict with yourself or with others eventually. Emotions don't lie and you can't trick them so it's better to make peace with them.

I wonder how other ENFPs respond to this. Good question.

How easy is it to offend an ENFP?
Personally, I think I'm offended easily if I've been 'insulted' on an aspect of myself that is sensitive or that is a core part of who I am. For example, I used to do parkour, and I was told non-shittily by my exe's friend that I did my Kong and Double Kong vaults weird somehow. I remember feeling very offended as parkour was my life at that point. I think overall I'm easily offended, but I try to hide it and remind myself it doesn't matter. I think the main reason I get offended though is because I deliberately and consciously use language in my conversations with people to avoid offending or hurting anyone. I aim to boost people's perceptions of themselves and to make them feel comfortable talking to me...and so when someone offends me, I take that as an instant symbol of their lack of regard for my own feelings and self-image.
I can only speak for myself though, I don't know if that's the same for other ENFPs : )

easy if you make them feel self conscious about there looks or characteristics, but as far as name calling, well I have fun with that I come up with some creative combos

What is the most common cause?
Letting yourself sponge in (Ne) information and feelings to saturation point without sharing them and attempting to continue to take in information and feelings and analyse them once saturation point is reached.

*KABOOOOOOOOM*

Depends on the situation..for me it's like beetwen the extremes:crazy:....sometimes people offend me directly and hard and i don't care or react to them and other times when people make a light offend or remark about me i feel offended to the bone:))...but for the most part i'm usually (over)confident to the point that i don't care what other people think about me because i know very well who i am and how to behave,talk etc.....

How easy is it to offend an ENFP?
I hesitate to say I'm never offended, but it's definitely difficult to offend me. If someone says something about me that is negative, it doesn't bother me because I don't agree with it. I'm very secure and quietly confident in who I am, so I feel like I've nothing to "hide" or that could attract insults, accidental or otherwise. Before I was so secure with who I am though, it was a little easier to offend me. I think it all comes down to whether or not the person at the receiving end of the insult believes it, or cares if the person saying it is clearly mistaken or just being spiteful. None of it bothers me because I don't see an ounce of truth in insults directed towards me, and accidental ones just make me feel sorry for the clueless person saying them.
I believe it's all a matter of self esteem.
