ENFPs may not always be the loud, life of the party types
they’re made out to be…
there’s a side of us that’s very personal, deep, private, and not at all a “party animal”. It’s not a huge side, but it’s there.
That side of me writes poetry. What’s your dark side do?
Fill out an online dating profile. Is it funny or serious?
How honest would they be? What pictures would they use?

methodology do they use? At what point do they give up? Succeed or fail, how do

An ENFP is a believer in the impossible,
and a force of intuition and perception…with others…
but with ourselves we easily end up with fears ruling our lives
that are totally unrealistic, nearly impossible, not even developing or moving that way in reality, and yet we see them as real.
We will stand to fight your worst nightmares,
but our own fears render us helpless to stand for ourselves.
