They 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 situations that are fluid and changing, thus allowing them to express their creativity and use their charisma.
They tend to idealize people, and can be disappointed when reality fails to fulfil their expectations. They are easily frustrated if a project requires a great deal of follow-up or attention to detail.
This type finds and interprets hidden meanings, using “what if” questions to explore alternatives, allowing multiple possibilities to coexist. This imaginative play weaves together insights and experiences from various sources to form a new whole, which can then become a catalyst to action.
They filter information based on interpretations of worth, forming judgments according to criteria that are often intangible. They constantly balance an internal set of values such as harmony and authenticity. Attuned to subtle distinctions, they innately sense what is true and what is false in a situation.
This type organises and schedules ideas and the environment to ensure the efficient, productive pursuit of objectives. They seek logical explanations for actions, events, and conclusions, looking for faulty reasoning and lapses in sequence.
ENFP collect data in the present moment and compares it with past experiences, a process that sometimes evokes the feelings associated with memory, as if the subject were reliving it. Seeking to protect what is familiar, they draw upon history to form goals and expectations about what will happen in the future.
