For me, tie between ENFJ and ENTJ. Please understand, this has been just my personal experience, but I really wonder how they (the ones I have come into contact with) are able to sleep at night.
This made me lol... How do you mean able to sleep at night? You make us sound really sinister lol.

I voted for ENTP anyway... Only when I first think I understand them, they always manage to leave me farther off in understanding them. It gets frustrating, because I have an eager curiosity to understand everything.

Now if the question was who do you understand but can't deal with? ENFP for sure. One of the warmest most lovable of people, but there is no pleasing them. It feels like they test you to your limits sometimes.

Also does anyone notice that most people voted against their opposite functions? T against F and vice versa? :tongue:

Aw, poor ENFPs getting the short end of the stick in all this :laughing: *pouncyhuggles*

I think it's funny that the type I'm most attracted to is the type I don't understand.
You know, Arioche is actually happy that she's tied for the lead. I'm not sure why she wants her type to be the least understood, though. :confused:

This poll is completely biased because first of all it's voluntary sample and second of all it depends on your perspective and we don't know the types of the voters. Just saying.

Obviously. :laughing: It's an internet poll on a forum about MBTI. It's loaded with biases. Doesn't mean we can't enjoy it for discussion's sake.

This, I believe, is part of our charm. At least, I like to think it's charming :laughing:

INFPs. If you tested me years ago, I'd have come out as INFP, but I don't understand them at all. Some of the things they do, and the way they see things are just... Completely enigmatic.

Oh the enigma....the ENIGMA... :confused:

You are not meant to understand us...that's the the whole point of inspiration...you don't know where that fire in the belly comes from but it just does and you go with it...

Now, the type that I do not understantd (sigh)...ISTJ...polar oppositude at it's finest...

I definitely don't understand ISTJs. How can someone just be so...stable? I guess we ENFPs are traditionally known for that. With all the ISTJs I know, I feel like I can never win arguments because we fight with such different mindsets, so what each one of us says never really affects the other. And I always get mad while they calmly use logic. Most frustrating thing EVER. I get mad thinking about it. Lol

My sister is an ISTJ and we get along very well. For some reason, knowing her intimately as I do, I don't necessarily see her as simply an ISTJ, which is why I didn't choose that combination in this poll.

I'm baffled by the sheer amounts of people who said ISTP or ESTJ.
For me, they are so easy to 'get' including the hows, whys, etc.

INFJs & INTJs are the most difficult. I voted for INFJs.

I haven't fully researched all the types yet, and I'm not always able to guess or assign a type to everyone in my life. From my limited experience trying to sort this way though, I'd say the most enigmatic type for me to understand has been, well, my enigma type. I started dating my current boyfriend (ISTP) around the same time I really started to read up on MBTI, and I was flabbergasted at their entirely different approach to everything. I think working toward a stronger understanding has certainly enriched my own personality though. It's been nice getting my head out of the clouds now and again, and if anyone can help you live in the moment, it's an ISTP. :happy:

If we're talking type that annoys me most, I think ESFJ would win out...I was raised by one, and while I certainly am not going to judge all ESFJs by my experiences with my aunt, it's certainly been a confusing and frustrating roller coaster ride.

Maybe people don't know many ENTPs in their lives? :mellow: Although, I don't think I'm particularly hard to understand. I'll surprise you, yeah, but I'm pretty genuine and up-front.

So I see ESTJ has taken the lead now, and ENFP has moved down to third! Are you going to "QQ" now, Yoshi? :tongue:

*Pokes* You're such a cutie lately :D I know we can be quite easy to understand. I also know that quite a few people I've seen say they don't understand ENTPs at all. So I decide to make a joke about it :D I didn't get the comedian award for nothing, and it almost looks like it has my face on it.

I'll explain. I try to combine Serious Topics with Comedic elements. Think of George Carlin, or Any ENTP comedian for that matter.
