{Blogtember - ENFJ}

So I back at it with Blogtember for today's post about personalities! I have taken numerous personality tests over the years for fun and such, but I have never taken this particular one before. I thought some of the questions were weird and could have been worded differently. But my results came back as ENFJ.

(For some reason I can't figure out how to get the picture here so I am just going to retype the results)
Extravert (44%), iNtuitive (56%), Feeling (38%), Judging (39%)
-You have moderate preference of Extraversion over Introversion (44%)
-You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (56%)
-You have moderate preference of Feeling over Thinking (38%)
-You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (39%).

ENFJs are the benevolent 'pedagogues' of humanity. They have tremendous charisma by which many are drawn into their nurturant tutelage and/or grand schemes. Many ENFJs have tremendous power to manipulate others with their phenomenal interpersonal skills and unique salesmanship. But it's usually not meant as manipulation -- ENFJs generally believe in their dreams, and see themselves as helpers and enablers, which they usually are.

ENFJs are global learners. They see the big picture. The ENFJs focus is expansive. Some can juggle an amazing number of responsibilities or projects simultaneously. Many ENFJs have tremendous entrepreneurial ability.

ENFJs are, by definition, Js, with whom we associate organization and decisiveness. But they don't resemble the SJs or even the NTJs in organization of the environment nor occasional recalcitrance. ENFJs are organized in the arena of interpersonal affairs. Their offices may or may not be cluttered, but their conclusions (reached through feelings) about people and motives are drawn much more quickly and are more resilient than those of their NFP counterparts.

ENFJs know and appreciate people. Like most NFs, (and Feelers in general), they are apt to neglect themselves and their own needs for the needs of others. They have thinner psychological boundaries than most, and are at risk for being hurt or even abused by less sensitive people. ENFJs often take on more of the burdens of others than they can bear.

Some famous people who are ENFJ personalities include Barack Obama, Ronald Regan, Sean Connery, Diane Sawyer (how cool!), Oprah Winfrey, Bob Saget (really?!),  Lauren Graham, and Ben Affleck just to name a few. 

I found this interesting because this was NOT what I was expecting.

  1. I'm an ENFJ as well! I'm over the moon that Lauren Graham is one because that just makes me SO happy!
