Myers Briggs ENFP - Characteristics
Myers Briggs ENFPs are initiators of change, keenly perceptive of possibilities. They
energize and stimulate others through their contagious enthusiasm.
They prefer the start-up phase of a project or relationship, and are
tireless in the pursuit of new-found interests. ENFPs are able to
anticipate the needs of others and to offer them needed help and
They bring zest, joy, liveliness, and fun to all aspects of their lives.
They are at their best in situations that are fluid and changing, thus
allowing them to express their creativity and use their charisma.
They tend to idealize people, and can be disappointed when reality fails
to fulfil their expectations. They are easily frustrated if a project
requires a great deal of follow-up or attention to detail.
This type finds and interprets hidden meanings, using “what if”
questions to explore alternatives, allowing multiple possibilities to
coexist. This imaginative play weaves together insights and experiences
from various sources to form a new whole, which can then become a
catalyst to action.
- They filter information based on interpretations of worth,
forming judgments according to criteria that are often intangible. They
constantly balance an internal set of values such as harmony and
authenticity. Attuned to subtle distinctions, they innately sense what
is true and what is false in a situation.
This type organises and schedules ideas and the environment to ensure
the efficient, productive pursuit of objectives. They seek logical
explanations for actions, events, and conclusions, looking for faulty
reasoning and lapses in sequence.
ENFP collect data in the present moment and compares it with past
experiences, a process that sometimes evokes the feelings associated
with memory, as if the subject were reliving it. Seeking to protect what
is familiar, they draw upon history to form goals and expectations
about what will happen in the future.
