    Are ENFP's the happiest MBTI type?

    I'm just beginning to learn about MBTI personality types but I went into a few other forums and I noticed that the ENFP thread seems to be the happiest group I've seen. Quirky but happy. It's not that everything in life "hunky dory" per se, but it seems like the personality most willing to make lemonade out of lemons. Everyone seems to be in the moment and enjoying life to it's fullest despite whatever setbacks they face.

    My husband is an ENFJ and he's pretty happy too, but he is prone to melancholy when he's left alone for too long. I can be alone and be pretty content. In fact, I actually prefer some alone time to decompress after extreme social activities and enjoy just being by myself as much as with others.

    What do you think the happiest personality type is?

    I can be extremely happy when I tap into my Ne second function - I wish it was my first to tell the truth.

    I think it comes down to Enneagram type to determine happy - E7 which includes esfp; they seem to be a
    close runner up with enfp's.

    I don't think there's any "happiest Type," to be honest. I think I project a very happy persona because I feel like it's good to share my joy but keep my blues to myself or only with my nearest and dearest. In some ways, my happy face is a bit of a shield; it can keep others from seeing the sadness and anxieties that make me feel especially vulnerable.

    From the outside ENFPs do appear the happiest, most optimistic people, to me. I don't know how you guys are on the inside though :p

    I think any type can be happy, because we create our own happiness. Although i get what you're saying, yes, ENFP have a happy persona about them. I think we smile a lot too. And laugh, we can find amusement in just about everything. ENFP are quite diverse, so it makes it easy to make light of difficult situations. Sometimes when i have too much going on at once instead of facing it head on i take a nap ;)

    Ooooh.

    ENFPs are good at feeling better quickly. Or they'll even enjoy unhappiness cuz it's a part of life and it doesn't last forever.

    Actually I think ENFPs have moments where they're happy as can be, flying alongside clouds and puffy rainbows etc. etc., but the next moment those clouds could turn into thunderstorms and the ENFP will not be having a very nice week. It's a trade off.

    Whereas some stodgier types may not have such large emotional swings.

    REally? I thought they seemed to have strong melancholy streaks...

    I would say no way. The ENFPs I know have shared their dark sides with me and they are expansive... I'd say they're very good at being enthused though in social settings. They are fun, exuberant people. But they do have a dark side (and who does not?).
