Who is genuinely more intense an ENFP or an INFP? But before I can answer please consider subscribing to the channel. So Steve Jobs can come back from the dead and prove once and for all that he is, in fact an ENTP and hit the alert bell so that you can be notified as to when I go live. So with that being said, What’s up Miko? Hackers. I’m CS Joseph here on the CS Joseph podcast.
here to answer your questions and all things union analytical psychology or the four sides of the mind. And the source of today’s question is Terry Cameron. We have Kelly White who wrote a book here. Let’s break it down in digestible bites, graded one through 10 for intensity, the bullets aren’t one to one as I tried to isolate each type of main characteristics super friendly with everyone always seem to have a smile on their face this ENFP works to bring everyone together for frequent social events sometimes doesn’t show because they forgot they had other obligations.
That’s true. Doesn’t understand that it puts people in a position where they have to decline has artistic leanings but has a little time because they’re always busy with others usually very open about their lives and they always voice it drama or not. That’s true. Sometimes struggled to say no when it’s clear to them that that’s their answer.
Not necessarily wants to be friends with everyone and has the turn to pull it off. True that frequently very intelligent Yep. And has a very warm heart and depending if that benefits them or not. total intensity score 100 Okay, interesting.
INFP chooses their friends carefully, very loyal to those they chose to let in put their foot down when their kids are with their kids when necessary. seeks out trusted confidant when they’re overly troubled, has an astonishing sixth sense that can’t be defined by science and it’s freaky good any parent true that uses art for an outlet true that efficient use of their recharge time to make art? They do not struggle to tell someone no if that’s the answer ever. No, that’s not true. Because sometimes they just stay silent and don’t say anything.
They always seem to know when friends need to kind word that’s true. Someone lets others words hurt them. Sometimes. Lets other words hurt them.
Yeah. Frequently very intelligent. Yeah. Has a very warm heart.
Yeah. INFP squeaks out the intensity victory. The deciding factor is that freaky sixth sense. I can understand where he’s coming from.
But that’s not accurate. But I’m still going to upvote this anyway. For points for creativity. Kelly noble interested in MBTI since 2004, INFP daydreamer, so it’s probably a book, maybe, who is certainly more intense, isn’t so much who is more intense, but who appears to be more intense? Well, while said wow, it’s the extrovert versus introvert situation.
Extroverts and ENFPs display display their intensity on the outside interests. INFJs feel their intensity on the inside, and don’t always show it externally, unless they feel comfortable or overwhelmed. So even if p is more than likely bubble their sweet selves in a fashion that draws others to them. They exude friendliness, which causes others to flock to them like mods.
True. INFP isn’t in the hands holding most their emotions and thoughts. They don’t often share what’s on their mind except with their close to your hearts. I do feel that if an INFP is crouching or speaking in a frustrated tone, they’re probably stressed and reach their social limit.
That’s the downside of holding the emotions in when overstimulated an INFP might react outwardly. And this little explosive reaction may give the appearance of an INFP is more intense, because at that moment, they probably are, I’d say that they are both intense in their own ways. Personally, I want to say the INFP is probably more intense overall. Only because the potential be quick to anger when injustice takes place in their vicinity.
Who can truly say, I am up voting this that’s that’s a very wise response. That’s excellent. I’m not going to waste much more time on these responses. So who is generally more intense an ENFP or an INFP? Technically, on paper, it’s the ENFP.
The reason why is because they just they’re triple progression, and they’re triple affiliative. So they’re all about doing the right thing. Sometimes that means getting other people to think about doing the right thing consistently their historic type, they have a hard time finishing what they start with, keep going keep going to get going. It’s like the Energizer Bunny, they won’t stop and energize the barn bunny has a bunch of zany charm to go on with it, you know what I’m saying.
And as a result of that, they absolutely dominate in intensity, especially in groups of people, and definitely Overall, however, the INFP can be insanely intense in certain situations. And when like their their Zen has been violated. And let’s say it was violated by a significant other underneath their roof or the roof that they’re under at that point in time. And they can become insanely intense that one person behind closed doors, and I would say it’s probably even far worse than the ENFP is in that particular moment.
So I guess the real answer is just like well Like Callie said earlier on Quora, it’s really situational. If you’re if you’re looking in terms of like a group setting or with people in general, the ENFP absolutely beats the INFP. For sure. But if you’re looking at a one on one interaction, and that one on one interaction causes the INFP, to become slighted once, one point or another, if they’re not, if they’re not pretending that that person exists, for example, because remember, you know, they’ll, they’ll first start pretending that the other person doesn’t exist.
And they won’t really say anything at all, you know, after a bit, it’s all about cold shoulder. But eventually, if that doesn’t work, and they have no choice, but to be overt, instead of being covert anymore, their demon is going to come out their ISTP demons is going to come out, and it’ll be super Rayji. And it has this insanely unmatched intensity, right? And that’d be a serious issue. That’s not to say that the ENFP ESTP super ego is not insanely intense as well, because it can be to the point of like, you know, even being physically violent, but guess what both are super egos can be physically violent.
I mean, come on. That’s just the reality. That being said, though, like ENFPs, just kind of have a reputation for that zany charm, and that intensity that just keeps going and going and going. The level of intensity that makes them amazing motivational speakers, like Jeff Fisher, or Owen cook, or Tony Robbins, those guys are insanely intense.
But then you look at inf peas like Robert Greene, does he really come off as intense to you? No, probably not. Maybe if you were in the bedroom with him, maybe. Maybe if you were in a fight with him on a one on one situation, he might take the intensity award. But predominantly, for the most part, the ENFP is definitely the one who is far more intense.
Most of the time, I’d say the majority of the time, if you’re gonna like make us a primary versus secondary, young versus in relationship, the ENFP would be the young and the INFP would be the Yin in this particular moment if we’re going to use that basic equilibrium comparison.
