Matter of fact, I spend my time doing so much analysis of other people's behaviors and "slowing down" before I react, I'm beginning to think that most people I finally Te Bitch Slap, almost certainly had it coming.
I want to see if these lyrics describe a particular mood ENFPs get into somewhat often. To me, it's that mix of repressed feelings and faked confidence for the sake of others, which so many people (it seems) mistake for arrogance.

I love our logical argumental side, I think we use it for scientific/political/religious discussions as well. I do like the image of the NF pulling out the scientist glasses, taking a deep breath, and then systematically and logically laying out exactly why he/she dislikes the offender's comment, the root cause of this discomfort, our own personal take on the issue, and kindly but firmly put down our iron clad argument with the weight of a dwarf star.
It's freaking awesome. I only know one other ENFP, and we're pretty much the exact same IQ, so I can't speak for all of us, but I think we fall into that category of the lively intelligent witty conversationalist a lot of the time, and if no one around us gets our multi-layered jokes/puns, we giggle merrily to ourselves.
