ENFP Personality Characteristics
ENFPs are people focused on both ideas and people, who consider everyone and everything as part of a cosmic whole. They like both helping and liking people and being admired by others, not only on an individual but also on a humanitarian level. This is hardly ever a problem for ENFPs as they are outgoing and caring and really like people. Some ENFPs have great quirky charm, allowing them to ingratiate themselves with more boring types despite their originality.
ENFPs often have strong values and views, in some cases surprising. They often try to use their contacts and social skills to gradually convince others (albeit with enthusiasm) of the accuracy of these opinions; This sometimes results in the ENFP neglecting their closest and loved ones while being involved in their efforts to change the world.
ENFPs can be the kindest, kindest, and most understanding of peers; affectionate, expressive, and spontaneous. Many people who have relationships with an ENFP literally say, "It brightens my life." But there is generally a downside: the couple must be willing to deal with the practical and financial aspects of the relationship, and the ENFP must be given the freedom to follow their last path, no matter what that entails.
For some ENFPs, relationships can be seriously tested because of their attention deficit and emotional needs. They are easily intrigued and distracted by new friends and acquaintances, forgetting about their oldest and most familiar emotional ties for a long time in a row. And less mature ENFPs may need to feel they are the constant focus of attention to confirm their self-image as wonderful and fascinating people.
In the workplace, ENFPs are friendly and kind and interact positively and creatively with both their coworkers and the public. ENFPs are also a very important resource in creative reflection sessions; however, project tracking can be a problem. ENFPs are distracting, especially if another interesting topic comes up. They also tend to put things off until later and don't like to do boring little tasks. ENFPs are most productive when they work in a group with some Js to handle the details and deadlines.
ENFPs are kind people. Most of them are really fun people. Some of the kindest people are ENFP.
ENFPs can act like fools in the blink of an eye. They can be intellectual, serious, and very efficient for a while, but whenever they get the chance they suddenly change and become a completely rebellious teenager. Sometimes they may even appear to be drunk when they change that way.
A study has shown that ENFPs are significantly overrepresented in psychodrama. Most have a natural tendency to role play and act.
ENFPs like to tell funny stories, especially about their friends. This propensity may be the reason why many are attracted to journalism.
ENFPs have a global learning style. Being close enough is satisfying for ENFPs, which can bewilder more precise types of thinking, especially with things such as piano practice ("three or four quarter notes ... what's the difference?") Surprisingly, some ENFP are experts in exact sciences like mathematics.
For ENFPs, life is about friends, even more than for other NFs. They fulfill their part of the relationship, sometimes being victims of individuals who are less kind. ENFPs are activated by being surrounded by people. Some find it really difficult to be alone, especially on a regular basis.
ENFPs can sometimes be caught off guard by their secondary Sentiment function. Hasty decisions based on deeply felt values can overflow with unpredictable results. More than one ENFP has suddenly quit a job at a time like this.
