There may have been a "Ways to annoy an ENFP" but its long gone by now, lost in the pile that is our forum.

Plus I don't see why it has to be so specific

What are some good ways of annoying highly-intuitive people? - Quora

Dismiss any suggestion that can't be proven with data. Especially design decisions, like the number of pixels to use in a button border: http://news.cnet.com/google-desi...

Be closed to new ideas and hostile to mistakes.

Require a debate for every decision. Make all decisions based on who can defend their position the best in aggressive verbal debate. When someone comes up with an intuitive idea, start debating with them about it instead of using it as a springboard for further ideas or action.

Insist of making decisions by writing out simple lists of pros and cons, ignoring the fact that this focuses the decision on factors that are easiest to describe verbally, not necessarily the factors that are most important.

Set up meetings where being the loudest, most talkative person counts for more than thoughtfulness, intelligence or insight.

Do not allow for solitary deliberation or thinking. Assume that all quick decision-making is good decision-making.

Require credentials in an area before taking anyone's suggestion about that area seriously. Make distinctions between people based on small differences in past achievement, such as minute differences in GPA. Discount the value of past experience.

Assume that all intelligence falls into two categories: verbal skills and mathematical skills, as measured by standardized tests, debating and especially logic puzzles. Discount, dismiss and ignore all other abilities and talents.

I would like to add
Make Intuitive back track to support argument

Stress the importance of getting every last detail right

Tell them to do something that has already been done and has no opportunity for improvement

Am I missing anything?

I originally thought you meant NT vs NF (Dur, hello blondeness!!), so I changed my answer...

Give them a list of rules that must be followed in order to attend the meeting, and make them sign a paper stating they will follow the meeting rules. If a rule is broken, they will be escorted from the meeting and asked to write a statement of apology...true story.

It didn't actually happen to me, but it was in effect at a job I worked at.

I think some of this is valid, but it also depends on who is giving and receiving the advice, and sometimes life experience is enough of a credential. The information in text books had to be tested by a real person before it got there- for example it was once a theory.

Force them to do pages of plug and chug calculations and geometrically accurate drawings with a protractor, correct them every time they make an exaggerated, humorous statement or sweeping generalization by stating the facts of the situation, and by giving a list of detailed instructions to follow.

There will be some difference between an introverted intuitive and an extroverted intuitive. An Ni will be very annoyed if you tell them to do something based on someone else's ideas, while an Ne will get really stressed if you make them just focus on one possibility.

Whenever that happens, I feel like throwing my calculator or protractor or whatever I have in my hands at said person. >:T

I never liked the insults because I was imaginative.

Being forced into details when I'm a "big picture" person is a problem too.

Sorry if i`m repeating what others have said, i didn`t read the thread. The most annoying thing for me is having to explain my stance in detail in order to get my message across. It maybe a bad habit of mine, although when in communication i automatically think that everyone around me just `gets it ` without any details included. So yeah, repeating a process with words or having to give graphic details urks me.

Make them do complex math problems. Require them to show their work down to every last detail. Treat them to a long, angry lecture every time their formula deviates from the "correct way" to do said problems.

And this is why school was painful for me...
