Recently there has been this personality test floating around blog land and well I caved and had to take it. Because this kind of stuff always fascinates me. I had to take one of these tests in college and I was hoping since it's been a few years maybe I've changed a lot and would get something different this time around. Nope. It looks like much hasn't changed in 5 years. 


 For the most part its pretty much right on.

ENFJ in a Nutshell

ENFJs are idealist organizers, driven to implement their vision of what is best for humanity. They often act as catalysts for human growth because of their ability to see potential in other people and their charisma in persuading others to their ideas. They are focused on values and vision, and are passionate about the possibilities for people.

ENFJs are typically energetic and driven, and often have a lot on their plates. They are tuned into the needs of others and acutely aware of human suffering; however, they also tend to be optimistic and forward-thinking, intuitively seeing opportunity for improvement. The ENFJ is ambitious, but their ambition is not self-serving: rather, they feel personally responsible for making the world a better place.
 Oh yes. that whole thing about having a lot on our plate and seeing possibility for people and the world. That would be me!

ENFJs are typically good communicators, talented at using words to connect with others. They are perceptive about people and enjoy talking about relationships. They often enjoy helping others solve personal problems and like to share their insights about people, their emotions, and their motivations. They are empathetic sometimes to the point of being over involved, and can become exhausted if they are surrounded by too much negative emotion. 
ENFJs have a strong need for close, intimate relationships, and will put forth a lot of effort in creating and maintaining these relationships. They're very loyal and trustworthy once involved in a relationship. 

Yes and Yes. I often feel frustrated and hurt when I spend time investing into a relationship and feel very loyal to that friendship and then its not preceded back to me. I am still learning and growing in that area. 
 I also found it interesting that a lot of the career choices mentioned for ENFJ's are things that I have already done in the past or have considered doing. 

Take the survey, you won't regret it ;)


  1. I just took the test not too long ago actually. I'm an ISFJ, the 'protector'.
    It said I had a marginal or no preference of Judging over Perceiving (1%) though, so I feel like I could swing in between ISFP and ISFJ, depending on the situation (?)

  2. So I just took this test yesterday after reading Shelley's blog and guess what? I'm an ENFJ too. Go figure. I knew there were reasons we were friends :)

  3. I really love the Meyers-Briggs personality test. It is so helpful in understanding myself and others. My scores have actually changed a little bit over the years. In college I scored an ENFJ- after college my J turned to a P and my E score kept getting lower and lower. Now I am an INFP, though sometimes I still score a J. I think I am naturally a P but taught myself J skills to stay focussed through things like college and my career. The odd part is that I think I have always been more of an introvert (I get my energy from being alone) but I would score Extravert because I spent so much time with people in college. It's interesting to see ways we've changed and ways we've stayed the same over the years, isn't it?
