This is a discussion on ENFP or ENFJ within the What's my personality type? forums, part of the Personality Cafe category; I've gone through INTP, ENTP, and ENFP over the past 4 years. Another shift shouldn't surprise me. Here's a list ...

    ENFP or ENFJ

    I've gone through INTP, ENTP, and ENFP over the past 4 years. Another shift shouldn't surprise me.

    Here's a list of my strengths (in rank order), as indicated by a recent test I took. I'm posting them here because I think they're relatively accurate:
    • Curiosity and interest in the world
    • Fairness, equity, and justice
    • Hope, optimism, and future-mindedness
    • Judgment, critical-thinking, and open-mindedness
    • Capacity to love and be loved


    These were strengths I did NOT possess. Again, these seem to be accurate:
    • Spirituality, sense of purpose, and faith
    • Bravery and valor
    • Self-control and self-regulation
    • Industry, diligence, and perseverence


    I would really appreciate it if people would help me out by asking me further questions to help figure out my type, or offer suggestions as to what would make me lean either way. I'm sure these traits don't show the whole picture.

    Let me find the handy dandy questionnaire... it's around here somewhere.

    INFP - The Idealists

    Here you go:

    1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type?

    2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?

    3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.

    4) What makes you feel inferior?

    5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)

    6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?

    7) Describe us a time where you had a lot of fun. How is your memory of it?

    8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you? (Are you more prone to be hands on, to theorize, to memorize, etc)

    9) How organized do you to think of yourself as?

    10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?

    11) You find harmony by making sure everyone is doing fine and belonging to a given group or by making sure that you follow what you believe and being yourself?

    12) Are you the kind that thinks before speaking or do you speak before thinking? Do you prefer one-on-one communication or group discussions?

    13) Do you jump into action right away or do you like to know where are you jumping before leaping? Does action speaks more than words?

    14) It's Saturday. You're at home, and your favorite show is about to start. Your friends call you for a night out. What will you do?

    15) How do you act when you're stressed out?

    16) What makes you dislike the personalities of some people?

    17) Is there anything you really like talking about with other people?

    18) What kind of things do pay the least attention to in your life

    19) How do your friends perceive you? What is wrong about their perception? ? What would your friends never say about your personality ?

    20) You got a whole day to do whatever you like. What kind of activities do you feel like doing?

    In my experience, ENFPs are similar to ENFJs in that they have strong values and want to be helpful to others, but for an ENFJ it is often their goal in life to help as many people as they can and they will have the organization, leadership, and motivation to make it happen, while an ENFP tends to apply their value system mostly to themselves and will not spend as much effort trying to change other people. An ENFJ wants to spread their values; an ENFP wants to live by their values while learning as much as they can.

    Here are the first ten because, wow. Holy questions.


    1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type?

    I'm noticing that I'm actually a very organized person. People who know me in real life actually mistake me for a J. Beyond that, I've also noticed that I'm not particularly original or creative. Sure, I'm artistic. But when it comes to pure idea-generating, I'm nothing spectacular. I feel like ENFPs should be very good with that, and it's just not my strong suit. As an aside, I'm also pretty introverted, but I don't think any of the introverted types really fit me. I feel like I'm just more of a reserved extravert.

    2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?

    I yearn for a family, first and foremost, one that I have created and nurtured. I want to find myself surrounded by true friends, and not the type of people who I currently associate with. I want to go out and experience the world. I love being a tourist and just taking in the sights. But I also yearn for the kind of happiness that comes from curling up by the fireplace with someone I love. Just relaxing and being content.

    3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.

    I feel at my finest when I'm working with new-student orientation at my school. I love being relied on as a team member, being able to perform well, and then being acknowledged and praised. I like to feel as if I'm competent and valued.

    4) What makes you feel inferior?

    I feel inferior when I'm not prepared for a situation and therefore 1) have nothing to contribute and 2) am not sure how to act. I also feel inferior when I have an opinion and/or feeling that is very important to me, but someone shuts me down and dismisses me. It hurts when I'm not allowed to give voice to my values.

    5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)

    I try to factor as many things as I possibly can into my decisions. There are a lot of practical things that go into my decisions, such as making sure something is possible, checking out logistics and such. I think about how others would feel if I were to approach them a certain way. I don't like to hurt feelings if I can help it. I do, however, know the difference between a decision that is entirely up to me and a decision that will influence others. I do like to maintain my autonomy where I know I'm entitled to it. There are also those moments when I just say to myself, "You know what? I'm just going to jump on that opportunity and see what happens." The latter process doesn't involve a whole lot of thinking.

    6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?

    For group projects, I definitely like to play a large role in the decision-making. I like to know that everything will get done the right way, which is code for "my way." I tend to relax more once I get a feel for the rest of the group and their level of competence, but I usually have that initial desire to control the situation since I am going to be held accountable for the end result. That being said, I try to make things fair for everyone, and I always make sure that everyone has their opinion considered.

    7) Describe us a time where you had a lot of fun. How is your memory of it?

    Really fun situations for me involve going to see and experience a new place with a good group of friends. I love it when the energy in a group is positive because I can relax and have a good time. When there's some sort of disharmony, my instincts to fix it or be worried about it start to kick in and make things difficult.

    8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you? (Are you more prone to be hands on, to theorize, to memorize, etc)

    I like to go out and read a bunch of information on a subject and soak it all in. I usually look for multiple viewpoints on a topic in order to make sure what I'm reading is accurate. I also love listening to someone speak on the subject. I don't really need a hands on approach to learn most knowledge-based things.

    9) How organized do you to think of yourself as?

    Recently, I've been very organized. I have so many commitments that I took on for this semester (which I signed up for last semester, not really thinking) that I need to have all my things in order. I'm not quite sure if this is a natural state for me, but I'm managing as best I can. All of this work aside, I generally have no problem just relaxing, not doing much. I'm content to let things go unfinished. I don't feel the need to be doing things all the time. And given a little more free time, I'm sure I wouldn't be as organized as I am now.

    10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?

    I look at the information that supports it. I trust the opinions and research I find. I don't really take much time to analyze something myself unless it's more open-ended. I feel more comfortable with facts than anything I generate myself.
