An ENFP’s inferior Si, on the other hand, tends more toward withdrawal and worry.
Both types can also demonstrate obsessive behavior and preoccupation with physical sensations (in contrast with dominant Sensing types, who are very comfortable with sensory information).
Having similar inferior functions can cause struggles for INFJs and ENFPs (e.g.
they might both find that keeping track of practical thing like money is a challenge), but at least you’re not living with someone who finds one of your favorite ways of viewing the world stressful.
Plus, they’re also what tends to come out when we’re under stress.
A stressed INFJ’s inferior Se tends to see the outer world as threatening and may overindulge in sensory things like eating and watching TV.
Then a few years after making this statement, I started actually getting to know one of my ENFP acquaintances.
I loved having ENFP friends, but the ones I knew were either so intense they made me feel anxious, or so extroverted they wore me out, or too scattered for me to think I wouldn’t eventually get irritated with them in a closer relationship (or all of the above).
ENFPs and INFJs both lead with Intuition as their dominant and best-developed learning function.
They both have Feeling as the co-pilot process they used to make decisions.
They can balance each other out quite well while also helping each other grow.
Exactly what role the tertiary function plays is up for debate.
