In search of myself (Source)
ENFPs are initiators of change, keenly perceptive of possibilities. They energize and stimulate others through their contagious enthusiasm.
They prefer the start-up phase of a project or relationship, and are tireless in the pursuit of new-found interests. ENFPs are able to anticipate the needs of others and to offer them needed help and appreciation.
They bring zest, joy, liveliness, and fun to all aspects of their lives.
They are at their best in fluid situations that allow them to express their creativity and use their charisma. They tend to idealize people, and can be disappointed when reality fails to fulfill their expectations.
They are easily frustrated if a project requires a great deal of follow-up or attention to detail.
Because of their enthusiasm for life, ENFPs have a wide variety of skills. They often find themselves going through several different careers throughout their life. Despite the fact that they rarely stay in one area of employment, they are surprisingly consistent.
ENFPs live their life following a strong set of values and everything they do resides from those values, including their career.
Their consistency comes from their own personal set of values that will never be betrayed.
ENFPs are constantly aware of everything around them, searching the world for inner peace and their “true self.” Often, this results in fear of losing themselves. ENFPs strive off of emotion, which can cause them to be highly intense and emotional. All of these facts are why values are so important in the life of a ENFP.
Since ENFPs are so enthusiastic, they have to take the time to be alone and focus in order to finish a project.
Their work is important to them, but without time to get centered, they often lose track and drop commitments. However, ENFPs that keep their focus and remain centered in their values tend to be highly successful in their personal as well as professional endeavors.
ENFPs have to remind themselves to keep with their current projects rather than getting excited about the next big thing. Since an ENFP is driven by their emotions, they have to be reminded to let their brain have a part in their decisions and not just their heart.
ENFPs contain excellent people skills. They are genuinely interested in people and what makes them tick. Inter-personal relationships are very important in the life of an ENFP.
They have an intense desire to be liked by other people. Sometimes this can result in trying too hard to be accepted.
However, once an ENFP has found a way to be true to who they are while also spending time with other people, they truly bring out the best in everyone around them.
When they take the time, ENFPs contain the ability to understand someone after only a short period of time and can use their natural intuition as well as their flexibility to relate to their peers.
