Hello ^^ this is the first post of mine and I decided to start it off with a question thats been haunting me ever since I took the 16 personality quiz and I was typed as an infp skip to a few years where I was a happier person, I retook the test to be type as enfp, this time i took the test about 15 times in the last month because I dont see myself as an extrovert
What ive read about enfps is that they are bubbly, outgoing and talkative, I become like that when Im outside with my friends but as soon as I return home I shut myself completely turning silent and awkward
having anxiety didnt help either with my social skills, even if I muster the courage to talk to strangers i overthink the situation, their facial expressions..etc and I back away without any progress
its sad to say I have difficulty making friends other than the ones Ive known since my childhood
all of this made me think I was an infp since I relate to it but at the same time I relate to the enfp

What's your home situation like -Is there a reason that you become more quiet there?
Also wondering if your anxiety could be masking any extrovert tendencies. If you didn't have anxiety, do you think you would be more outgoing and interactive, bubbly etc?

Hi thanks for replying 😁
My home is quite normal, I don't have any severe causes that make me quiet but perhaps it's because we have more extroverts in my house so I don't feel the need to initiate conversations and keep the situation from being awkward
As for my anxiety, yeah I think if I didn't have such a a great fear of rejection or judgement I would be more sociable and bubbly like I am with my friends
