ENFP Personality Type Profile – The Champion
ENFPs have an Extraverted, Intuitive, Feeling and Perceiving personality. The ENFP personality type is highly individualistic and Champions strive toward creating their own methods, looks, actions, habits, and ideas — they do not like cookie cutter people and hate when they are forced to live inside a box. The ENFP personality likes to be around other people and have a strong intuitive nature when it comes to themselves and others. They operate from their feelings most of the time, and they are highly perceptive and thoughtful.
ENFPs are lucky in that they’re good at quite a lot of different things. An ENFP can generally achieve a good degree of success at anything that interests 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.
Unlike other Extraverted types, ENFPs need time alone to center themselves and make sure they are moving in a direction which is in sync with their values. ENFPs who remain centered will usually be quite successful at their endeavors, as long as they follow through. ENFPs are usually happy people unless they are confined to strict schedules or mundane tasks. An unhappy ENFP can misuse their gift of gab and become quite manipulative because their charm makes it easy for them to get what they want. Luckily, most ENFPs will not abuse their natural abilities because it would go against their personal values.
Since relationships are central to the ENFP’s life, they will be very “hands-on” and involved with their intimate relationships. They may be in the habit of constantly asking their partner how they’re doing or what they’re feeling. This behavior may be a bit smothering, but it also supports a strong awareness of the health (or illness) of the relationship. The ENFP needs to be given positive assurance and affirmation. ENFPs can be the type who fishes for compliments. They like to hear from their significant others that they are loved and valued, and are willing and eager to return the favor. They enjoy lavishing love and affection on their mates and are creative and energetic in their efforts to please.
Difficult time disciplining
The ENFP’s enthusiasm and affection may at times seem smothering to their children. This will be especially true for children with strong Thinking or Sensing preferences, who will have a difficult time understanding the effervescence of the ENFP personality, and will feel at times embarrassed by the ENFP’s enthusiasm and tendency to display their affection publicly. The ENFP is able to take care of day-to-day necessities, such as picking children up at the correct times, getting them to softball practice, getting them fed, etc. However, it is a chore for the ENFP and is not a natural strength. The ENFP also has a difficult time disciplining their children, unless a very strongly-held value has been violated.
Good at most things
ENFPs are warm and enthusiastic people who are typically very bright and full of potential. They live in the world of possibilities, and can become very passionate and excited about things. Their enthusiasm lends them the ability to inspire and motivate others. They can talk their way in or out of anything. They love life, seeing it as a special gift, and strive to make the most out of it. ENFPs have an unusually broad range of skills and talents. They are good at most things which interest them. Project-oriented, they may go through several different careers during their lifetime.
