    Careers for ENFP Personality Types




    Whether you're a young adult trying to find your place in the world, or a not-so-young adult trying to find out if you're moving along the right path, it's important to understand yourself and the personality traits which will impact your likeliness to succeed or fail at various careers. It's equally important to understand what is really important to you. When armed with an understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, and an awareness of what you truly value, you are in an excellent position to pick a career which you will find rewarding.

    ENFPs generally have the following traits:



    • Project-oriented
    • Bright and capable
    • Warmly, genuinely interested in people; great people skills
    • Extremely intuitive and perceptive about people
    • Able to relate to people on their own level
    • Service-oriented; likely to put the needs of others above their own
    • Future-oriented
    • Dislike performing routine tasks
    • Need approval and appreciation from others
    • Cooperative and friendly
    • Creative and energetic
    • Well-developed verbal and written communication skills
    • Natural leaders, but do not like to control people
    • Resist being controlled by others
    • Can work logically and rationally - use their intuition to understand the goal and work backwards towards it
    • Usually able to grasp difficult concepts and theories


    ENFPs are lucky in that they're good a quite a lot of different things. An ENFP can generally achieve a good degree of success at anything which has interested them. However, ENFPs get bored rather easily and are not naturally good at following things through to completion. Accordingly, they should avoid jobs which require performing a lot of detailed, routine-oriented tasks. They will do best in professions which allow them to creatively generate new ideas and deal closely with people. They will not be happy in positions which are confining and regimented.



    The following list of professions is built on our impressions of careers which would be especially suitable for an ENFP. It is meant to be a starting place, rather than an exhaustive list. There are no guarantees that any or all of the careers listed here would be appropriate for you, or that your best career match is among those listed.





    Possible Career Paths for the ENFP:
    Consultant
    Psychologist
    Entrepreneur
    Actor
    Teacher
    Counselor
    Politician / Diplomat
    Writer / Journalist
    Television Reporter
    Computer Programmer / Systems Analyst
    Scientist
    Engineer
    Artist

    I find it somewhat embarassing how quiet this place is. Just goes to show where people's priorities are... Is there a deleted/missing trait here?

    Nope. It's just a formatting error. There's really no deleted/missing trait.

    I find it so refreshing that "scientist" is included on this list. "Counselor" and "diplomat" are often included as possible careers for ENFPs but nothing outside the social sciences and humanities. Part of why I mistyped as ENTP for so long is that NT is so strongly associated with scientific fields. Well, I'm a scientist and I love it because I can use my ideas and my research to make the world a better place.

    I think NFs in general naturally gravitates toward HR positions. And real state is also not bad because ENFP are every personable and can easily persuade people because of natural charisma.

    And also additional career is a PR man or woman.

    I used to be a mortgage broker during the refinance boom and had a blast talking to people on the phone, but when it came down to making money there was only one way to make lots of it... It was all a numbers game to me, and it was how I was taught, so I didn't understand the implications (and that's the honest truth), but my subconscious definitely did. I felt like I lost my soul after about 3 months. I was drinking heavily and doing things that I would consider crazy.

    I definitely don't mean to be Debbie Downer. I'm sure you'll be awesome at it and it will be very rewarding for you. Just understand what working with people and their money means, timc24. Stay true to yourself if you do become a Real Estate agent. Help people and it definitely will be rewarding. If you find yourself doing something questionable, then I hope you are far more able to live with the self-imposed consequences than I was. If I could find the people I screwed and pay them back somehow, I would try.

    This is interesting I am currently an biology/pre-med major, which is basically the opposite of the list. But I'm starting to rethink my major and I think most of it is because the detail that I have to look for is hard to grasp specially when studying. I'm going to see how this semester goes and if it doesn't go as well I think I'm going into teaching English as a second language that way I can travel and teach, since I have been thinking about this major for a while.
