Difference INFJ/ENFJ, females


#1

Hello There! How would you describe differences between INFJs and ENFJs, particularly in females? I feel that a lot of what I have read on both types tends towards descriptions of males. I also vacillate between typing myself one or the other and cannot decide. What is your take on differences and similarities? Any examples?

Join the club!! Both @Jennie and I thought we were infjs at first before we realized we were too out there and we were probably enfjs (well at least that’s what I thought about myself haaha)

Here’s a thread about enfjs by enfjs so you know it’s fo realz:

Here’s the start of a debate about infj v enfj for Jennifer Lawrence if you want to see how various people make the distinction:

Don’t think twice about asking more questions and exploring the forum more for info!! :kissing_heart: Not to try and sway you or anything but @Ankh and Jennie and I are looking for a fourth enfj of the apocalypse so…you better come join us :sunglasses:

ENFJ = Extra Naughty Fiery Jaguar.

Hmm… let me think on this…


#6

Why do you guys make me so happy!?!?


#7

Oh, thanks so much! How did you come to ENFJ instead of INFJ?


#8

You make me so happy too!! :kissing_heart:

So basically I doubted that my intuition was strong enough to qualify me as infj which lead me to have a huge identity crisis so I asked all the Starlings what type they thought I was :smiley_cat:

My laptop’s going to die now so I’m not going to go into more detail in this post but I’ll link you to the thread in which Blake convinced me I was actually enfj even though I had always thought myself too introverted:

I’d say for me it’s the fiery part like @Ankh posted. :fire::fire::fire::fire:

Don’t get me wrong, I have also spent many years locked up in my room reading and being antisocial. Heck if my memory serves me well it was an entire decades worth of introversion. Sometimes I still am, I don’t openly like to talk about myself unless I feel very comfortable.

What stood out for me in the posted article above was the part that discussed being an actress. I remember vividly when I was a child in kindergarten, it was show and tell day and I was called on to show. I was the new kid in class but happily performed a song I’d learned from my previous school. I sang my little heart out, hip shaking and hand gestures to boot.

Hmm… that helps. I had always thought of myself as an introvert. My friends adamantly insist that I am an extremely extroverted and I am beginning to wonder if this might be true. As a child/teenager, people asked me if I even spoke at all. I spent most of my free time painting and reading poetry. I also sometimes feel rather misanthropic. But I have always loved speaking and being in front of groups. I love attention and I love to perform if it is for an attentive audience. I also adore dancing and was in a performing mambo dance team.

I can be somewhat clumsy, though.


#13

#14

#15

#16

#17

How did you know you were enfj then?


#18

#19

What fits ENFJ is that you like to dance. That’s where you use your Se if I’m correct. ENFJs have better use of their Se, i believe. I like to dance too and am a bit clumsy sometimes but I get into it nonetheless.
