ENFP

I am an ENFP! And guess what? My dh is the complete opposite as an ISTJ!

Am I speaking some weird code language? NO! LOL I am referring to our Jung personality results. It totally gets us to a T. (I forgot to say: HT - Groovy Mom! And Marcy too!)

Here is one of the tests that I took, and here a second. The second was more accurate for me, for some reason. Go ahead, take it, I'll wait... *tapping my toe*

What did you get?

After you get your answer go here and here for a really cool explanation of your personality and tell me if it fits!

Here are a few excerpts from mine:

ENFPs are friendly folks. Most are really enjoyable people. Some of the most soft-hearted people are ENFPs.

ENFPs have what some call a "silly switch." They can be intellectual, serious, all business for a while, but whenever they get the chance, they flip that switch and become CAPTAIN WILDCHILD, the scourge of the swimming pool, ticklers par excellence. Sometimes they may even appear intoxicated when the "switch" is flipped. I definitely have a silly switch! hahaha

One study has shown that ENFPs are significantly overrepresented in psychodrama. Most have a natural propensity for role-playing and acting.

ENFPs like to tell funny stories, especially about their friends. This penchant may be why many are attracted to journalism. I kid one of my ENFP friends that if I want the sixth fleet to know something, I'll just tell him. Everyone knows I love to talk... :-p

ENFPs are global learners. Close enough is satisfactory to the ENFP, which may unnerve more precise thinking types, especially with such things as piano practice ("three quarter notes or four ... what's the difference?") Amazingly, some ENFPs are adept at exacting disciplines such as mathematics. Math is my favorite subject!!

Friends are what life is about to ENFPs, moreso even than the other NFs. They hold up their end of the relationship, sometimes being victimized by less caring individuals. ENFPs are energized by being around people. Some have real difficulty being alone , especially on a regular basis. I hate being alone!

----------------------------------------------------------------

Most ENFPs have great people skills. They are genuinely warm and interested in people, and place great importance on their inter-personal relationships. ENFPs almost always have a strong need to be liked. Sometimes, especially at a younger age, an ENFP will tend to be "gushy" and insincere, and generally "overdo" in an effort to win acceptance. However, once an ENFP has learned to balance their need to be true to themselves with their need for acceptance, they excel at bringing out the best in others, and are typically well-liked. They have an exceptional ability to intuitively understand a person after a very short period of time, and use their intuition and flexibility to relate to others on their own level. I have been known to gush.. *blushing now*

ENFPs are basically happy people. They may become unhappy when they are confined to strict schedules or mundane tasks. Consequently, ENFPs work best in situations where they have a lot of flexibility, and where they can work with people and ideas. Many go into business for themselves. They have the ability to be quite productive with little supervision, as long as they are excited about what they're doing. I am almost always able to be happy or get happy if I am not happy at present ;)

Because they are so alert and sensitive, constantly scanning their environments, ENFPs often suffer from muscle tension. They have a strong need to be independent, and resist being controlled or labeled. They need to maintain control over themselves, but they do not believe in controlling others. Their dislike of dependence and suppression extends to others as well as to themselves. Very me! I almost always have back tension, which is why I love my back massage therapist so much! :)

ENFPs are charming, ingenuous, risk-taking, sensitive, people-oriented individuals with capabilities ranging across a broad spectrum. They have many gifts which they will use to fulfill themselves and those near them, if they are able to remain centered and master the ability of following through.

I am still working on mastering that ole follow-through! :)

  6. I'm an INTJ and we always get along great with ENFP's. I have had some good ENFP friends. When I first learned this stuff, I put up my Personality Types page and made everyone I know take it. It's fun stuff and really impacting too.
