Anonymous said: any help/advice for an ENFJ going to a new school with low confidence? :(

Sure! ENFJs make friends through projects & competency based interactions. Sooo - that thing that you REALLY like doing, find a club/class/group for it, and thus the people that also really like that thing.  TEAMS!

Also- don’t worry about what other people think of you. If you’re being yourself, and doing what makes YOU happy, everything will be OK.

(But protip: when in doubt, baked goods always win people over…)

the24-hourpianist said: Can you explain the sexual attraction between an intp and enfj through scenario?

Scenario: on the park bench.
INTP: Your dorky anecdotes have stopped making sense.
ENFJ: HM? SORRY? YOUR EYES ARE SO PRETTY.

Scenario: in the library.
INTP: Pls continue being in my personal space. Not effective for work, but-
ENFJ: HM? SORRY? YOU’RE SMART. YOUR EYES ARE SO PRETTY.
INTP: Be more in my personal space?

Scenario: getting ice cream.
ENFJ: Hold this pls.
*ENFJ’s ice cream falls onto INTP, because two clumsy people*
ENFJ, INTP: *intense not-staring, some licking of casualty ice cream*

Scenario: life.
INTP: You’re actually, like, a really good person.
ENFJ:
INTP: Are you listening to anything I’m saying.
ENFJ: … MAYBE?!

1. DEAR HEAVENS, I am not a guidance counselor!

2.The ENTPs I know have all been good at math (and physics) but have lots of diverse interests and skills. I know ENTP engineers, architects, mathematicians and artsy-types who are all excellent in their chosen fields. The question is what would this ENTP in question like to do after high-school, and which course will be most beneficial in consideration of that goal (and equal parts, which ones would they rather take, and who the teachers might be!).

3.So…. make a pros and cons list. It’s okay if a pro is “I CAN SLEEP IF I TAKE THIS ONE AND NOT THE OTHER”.  It’s a legit reason.* And weight your points so that “I really like this teacher and not the other” gets more consideration than “I don’t like maps”.

* I dropped grade 12 physics part-way through the year to practice more harp. So what do I know. My Russian Physics Teacher almost refused to sign the form to let me out of his class. “Vat eez zee ‘arp????”

Hi anon! I’m (ENTP) going to chime in. 

If you want to go into the STEM field, biology or physics would both work. However, if you don’t want to go into STEM, bio would be a better option because it can replace your general education requirement for science. Physics really isn’t a gen ed requirement for non-STEM fields. ENTPs seem to universally hate gen eds so the more you can knock out, the better.  

I personally took APUSH. AP Geography isn’t as particularly useful as APUSH in my opinion. Most colleges will accept APUSH as a gen ed requirement for social studies. Geography? Not so much. That, and I’m horrible at geography. You might like the challenge of doing something you’re horrible at though. 

I’m going to assume you’re a HS junior. I would suggest taking APUSH and AP Bio. Those classes both get a lot of weight in most high schools so you shouldn’t be stuck with horrible teachers and they fulfill gen ed requirements in most colleges. You can AP Geography and AP Physics your senior year (that’s when most people take the more random AP Classes anyhow). 

Reblogging, so hopefully it gets seen! The words AP clearly mean more to this helpful person than they do to me. EDUCATION ACRONYMS… not so much a big thing in my country. What is a GRE.

Anonymous said: This is like beyond random but could you do an INTJ mom and an ENFP dad giving their ENFJ kid life advice? lol thanks

Scenario A: the united front

ENFP Dad: But will it make you happy? It’s important that you’re happy.
INTJ Mom: Your father makes a good point.

Scenario B: international waters

ENFJ:
But Dad said…
INTJ Mom:
ENFJ, I love your father very much, and I’m going to say something that up until now I thought was an unspoken, shared agreement between the two of us for the entirety of your existence.
ENFJ: That he’s basically a 12 year old and doesn’t live in the real world?
INTJ Mom: Oh good, you ARE my child after all.

ENFJ: But Mom says that I should consider the practicality…
ENFP Dad: ENFJ, I love your mom very much. But something she doesn’t understand is that sometimes things are more worthwhile when they’re messy.
ENFJ: Oh. Yeah, that’s true.
ENFP Dad: You’ve got good instincts, and I’ll always be here for you. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.

ENFJ: Y’ALL ARE UNHELPFUL  :(

You’re a unique bunch.

Anonymous said: Where does one find ENFJ males? I swear ENFJs are practically unicorns. Y'all do not exist.

They exist! You can find them hiding behind:

a) their ears (big ones, it’s a thing)
b) scarves (or neckerchiefs, as the case may be, Colin Morgan)
c) radio broadcasts (it’s not a dying form of media!!!!)
d) an oversized plaid shirt (not to be confused with hipsters)
e) large hand gesticulations (you could power a windmill for a year)
f) bad jokes (SO MANY WEIRD DORKY JOKES)

See: Colin Morgan, Stuart McLean, Gordon Korman, George Harrison, Andrew Garfield (the dude wears plaid shirts with suits when he can get away with it, and one time a PLAID SUIT) and Josh Groban for starters.

OK, that is a group of accomplished men who definitely don’t take themselves too seriously. Eek! Have some bonus Josh Groban being a dork.

Anonymous said: INTP confides in ENFJ about boy problems.

Ummm, if by boy problems you mean girl problems, that’s at least 5 years of my life I’ll never get back ;)

And yet, my INTP friends are the ones who are always in serious committed relationships, not me. Soooooo draw your own conclusions!***

*** I an excellent confidant, obviously. I take full credit, is what I mean. AHEM.

thecrazycorgilady said: So, about the INTP-ENFJ collaboration... It was a school project, so neither of us initiated it. I remember being really frustrated that we didn't do it all my way, but then when the collaboration was finished, I realized that INTP's portion was much better than mine. As for the whole dodgeball scene... yeah, for my 13th birthday party we spent 12 hours trying to film a movie I had written, but I envisioned a dodgeball scene with much more professional cuts than we could do, haha.

Thanks for sharing! This is adorable, and embarassingly easy to picture. I love the classic ENFJ idea of a fun party. Were you also the head of props, executive producer and principal voice actor? Thank you to INTPs everywhere for humouring their ENFJ friends <3

Anonymous said: HELP! How do you tell when an ENFP is flirting and/or romantically interested in you? I really, really like this guy and I have no idea if he likes me :( - A very confused, very wimpy ENFJ

Protip #1: ENFPs are always flirting. They can’t turn it off.*
Protip #2: All ENFJs are wimpy when it comes to these things.

*as you noted by separating flirting/romantic interest, there may not be any agenda or intent behind their flirting. ENFPs flirt because they breathe.

Unpopular Opinion: ENFP and ENFJs who can not explicitly use their words to state romantic interest should not be embarking on that hot mess.

In my experience, the ENFPs are the aggressors in this dynamic - and they will go for it, if they’re interested enough to make a move. But like, fellow ENFJs, if you’re braver than I am… please try making the first move, and report back! Just don’t throw off the balance of the universe too much.

I JUT MISSED MY 100TH POST.

It was about ISFPs. TYPICAL.

Anyways - Hi, lovely people, thanks for being here.

Anonymous said: How can i be sure that i'm an isfp is there any special stuff that most isfp can relate to or something?

You can check my ISFP tag, and that may or may not be helpful. There are a lot of ISFPs out there, so there’s a little more obvious variety than in some of the N-types like INFPs and INFJs and INTPs. In general, ISFPs are super sweet, idealistic, excellent at the things they choose to be their area of expertise - with a large depth of knowledge, and a little bit doe-eyed.

ISFPs make the world a better place, much to the frustration of everyone else ;)

Anonymous said: how does an isfp react to getting pissed off?

Hahahaha #angryisfps.The general public at large rarely gets to see angry ISFPs because ISFPs have the special talent of BAILING SO HARD. One second they’re there, and then you turn around, and have to convince yourself that you’re not crazy. The ISFP was there one second ago. Or were they? HOW DO THEY DO IT.

ANGRY ISFP SITUATION: Employer mistreating ISFP’s underling.
ISFP: DON’T BE A JERK.
EMPLOYER: I WILL BE A JERK.
Coworkers: Wait, where is ISFP?
ISFP: *sends letter of resignation five hours later from bar*

ANGRY ISFP SITUATION: Rampant sexism from establishment
ISFP: DON’T BE A JERK.
ESTABLISHMENT: I WILL CONTINUE TO BE A JERK.
Community at large: Wait, where is IS ISFP??
ISFP: *shows up three days later on every single media outlet to make an eloquent and classy point*

ANGRY ISFP SITUATION: personal relationship gone awry.
ISFP: DON’T BE A JERK.
OTHER PERSON: I’M NOT A JERK. YOU’RE THE JERK.
OTHER PERSON: *turns away for 2 seconds*
OTHER PERSON: WAIT, WHERE IS ISFP?????
ISFP: *bailin’* Freedommmmmm!

It’s a special talent. Do they teach this at ISFP school? I sometimes wish we get to see the bailing in action. Is it as smooth as it seems, or do they hide in the curtains, or behind doors and wait for us to leave before sneaking on out?

Anonymous said: entj vs entp? I'm having troubles finding my personality.

Have you looked under the couch cushions? Oh, OK. Wayward ENT-s, gather round. Are you compelled to:

1a) organize the world and people around you, because they can’t do it for themselves (or to your satisfaction)
b) make the world a better place through math and theoretical science

2a) host elaborately themed parties
b) show up to elaborately themed parties wearing Princess Leia buns

3a) groan at other people’s dad jokes
b) make dad jokes

4a) commit to all the things because you CRAVE commitment
b) lose your ability to function or speak at the notion of committing

5a) set goal, collect minions, achieve goal. WIN.
b) have thing you want, work towards thing you want with some detours, accidentally stumble upon the answer to the world’s problems.

a = congrats, you are an ENTJ!
b = congrats, you are an ENTP!

Either way, you are awesome. Not helpful?
