ENFJ: Extravert iNtuitive Feeler Judger

“The Mentor” (Temperament: Advocate)

ENFJs are passionate leaders and natural mentors.

They see the world as being full of possibilities and opportunities. Many great artists, speakers and actors are ENFJs.

They can be exceptionally thoughtful and persuasive and are very good at understanding people and how to motivate them.

ENFJs and Emotional Awareness

ENFJs will have a strong awareness of the emotional climate in a given room. They’re as good as it gets when it comes to understanding the physical and emotional needs of a person or a group.

This sensitivity can make them very charismatic and influential.

ENFJs and Intuition

Bono - ENFJ

ENFJs tend to be non-traditional and creative. Many seek out disciplines and teachings that are alternative to the mainstream, such at metaphysics and spirituality.

ENFJs are know to use their natural attunement to people and combine it with their creative, intuitive abilities to become great writers of words and/or music. They enjoy experiencing how sounds, words and images affect themselves and others.

ENFJs and the Physical World

ENFJs tend to be more sensation oriented than their ESFJ counterparts. Many report enjoying experiences that give them an adrenaline rush and they can wield great power in the physical/sensory domain.

ENFJ Needs

ENFJs are prone to absorbing the emotional energy of those around them. At a certain point this can become overwhelming and they’ll need to spend time alone to recharge.

Despite their typically pleasant and outgoing general disposition, they can, at times, be cutting and dismissive, both of others and themselves. 

As sensitive people, they can greatly appreciate grace in response to these moments. As deeply caring people, they tend to be very appreciative of those who give them the level of attention that they give to others.
