> Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with politeness, but I think many people in this world would prefer you to tell them what they want to hear, than what you think you should tell them. Just for clarity's sake I always hate being shunned for expressing my emotions in the correct way. I am very shy or introverted with my emotions and when people criticize me for not doing or saying something even though I have felt and thought it, it is very frustrating. I feel like people get this image of me that is a far cry from who I am, and usually this image I project seems to be less polite than the real me. Welcome to life.

= Well, have you ever looked at the functional analysis of you type?
ENFP function looks like this : Ne/Fi/Te/Si

Your Intuition is extraverted and your feelings are introverted in functional analysis. Which means that you use your Intuition and Thinking modes in the external world. Your feelings and senses are on the inside(internal world) and people rarely see that part of you. But your F is very strong because it is your second favored trait but you use it mostly internally.

That's why you feel like people may not know the real you, perhaps. Your feelings really are on the inside.

It is normal though. INFPs have the same thing except that the N and F are flipped in positions but it has the same effect, people often don't see our emotions or feelings....but they are our strongest point in our personalities. INFP - Fi/Ne/Si/Te

Because our main function is introverted we have to use our auxiliary to deal with the external world.

> By the way, where did you find that MBTI description? Do you know anything about the Five Factor model?

I got the info from the site below and ,no, I had not heard of the Five Factor model.
