Personality Quiz: ENFP – The Inspirer

Personality Quiz: ENFP – The Inspirer

Hello viewers of my first blog,
I would like to introduce myself. I am a Latina female currently studying Economics at a University in the wonderful state of New York. You can call be Maddy, that is my nickname. Although I want to keep this anonymous so I can express myself as freely as I wish, I do not feel comfortable starting something so personal with a fake name. So I decided to give you my nickname. This should be an interesting blog. Get ready! 😀

For a first post this may seem like a very long post but I do believe that it is needed. I actually think its a great way to start this new blog (which I’ve been thinking of starting for quite some time now). This will be a very personal, informative and reflective piece. I decided to take a personality test yesterday at the suggestion of one of my best friends. Everyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love (ADORE) taking personal quizzes, especially if I feel that they will reveal something new to me about myself, or allow me to see myself from a different perspective. Moreover I have been struggling with finding my path in life, finding passion in a career and figuring out what I want to do once I graduate from college. So I have been considering taking a personality test for a while along with a career test and other types of tests. But of course being the me that I am, I have procrastinated on that for a few months. I actually forgot that I wanted to do those things until yesterday when I was sent the link to this quiz. I will post the link to the quiz at the end of this post incase anyone else wants to take it. I took the quiz and then put the personality type into google and this post consists of what I found. Here’s some insight into what I think of this. My writing will be Bolded for you all incase you’re interested. Enjoy and let me know how accurate you think it is for you!

As an ENFP, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. Your secondary mode is internal, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit in with your personal value system.

Because of this awkward age that I am currently at, my values are a bit all over the place. I do believe that I have a strong set of values, but at times I question them. When I do set a standard though, I seem to set it for myself more than anyone. I also have a very strong sense of intuition and can see things coming before they happen. Sometimes I go against my intuition which always ends badly on my end. When I was younger my mom used to call me her “little witch” because I would sense bad things or good things coming before they did, so she thought I was psychic. 

ENFPs are warm, enthusiastic people, 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, more so than we see in other types. 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.

I like to believe that the above paragraph is completely me. Although I did lose a bit of myself for a while in the chaos of life, I’m glad I was given a reality check and that I’m gaining control of my life and emotions again. 

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. To onlookers, the ENFP may seem directionless and without purpose, but ENFPs are actually quite consistent, in that they have a strong sense of values which they live with throughout their lives. Everything that they do must be in line with their values. An ENFP needs to feel that they are living their lives as their true Self, walking in step with what they believe is right. They see meaning in everything, and are on a continuous quest to adapt their lives and values to achieve inner peace. They’re constantly aware and somewhat fearful of losing touch with themselves. Since emotional excitement is usually an important part of the ENFP’s life, and because they are focused on keeping “centered”, the ENFP is usually an intense individual, with highly evolved values.
An ENFP needs to focus on following through with their projects. This can be a problem area for some of these individuals. 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. Others may fall into the habit of dropping a project when they become excited about a new possibility, and thus they never achieve the great accomplishments which they are capable of achieving.

Losing interest in people, things and tasks is my biggest problem although I do not see it as a problem at this point in time because I don’t really have to be committed to anything but nothing makes my life more of a drag than having to do something that I am no longer interested in even if initially I was ecstatic about it. I lose interest in things pretty quickly. 

Most ENFPs have great people skills. They are genuinely warm and interested in people, and place great importance on their inter-personal relationships. ENFPs almost always have a strong need to be liked. Sometimes, especially at a younger age, an ENFP will tend to be “gushy” and insincere, and generally “overdo” in an effort to win acceptance. However, once an ENFP has learned to balance their need to be true to themselves with their need for acceptance, they excel at bringing out the best in others, and are typically well-liked. They have an exceptional ability to intuitively understand a person after a very short period of time, and use their intuition and flexibility to relate to others on their own level.
Because ENFPs live in the world of exciting possibilities, the details of everyday life are seen as trivial drudgery. They place no importance on detailed, maintenance-type tasks, and will frequently remain oblivous to these types of concerns. When they do have to perform these tasks, they do not enjoy themselves. This is a challenging area of life for most ENFPs, and can be frustrating for ENFP’s family members.

EXCITEMENT IS ALL ME! My motto is “Carpe Diem” and I actually love this quality about myself. 

An ENFP who has “gone wrong” may be quite manipulative – and very good it. The gift of gab which they are blessed with makes it naturally easy for them to get what they want. Most ENFPs will not abuse their abilities, because that would not jive with their value systems.
ENFPs sometimes make serious errors in judgment. They have an amazing ability to intuitively perceive the truth about a person or situation, but when they apply judgment to their perception, they may jump to the wrong conclusions.

ENFPs who have not learned to follow through may have a difficult time remaining happy in marital relationships. Always seeing the possibilities of what could be, they may become bored with what actually is. The strong sense of values will keep many ENFPs dedicated to their relationships. However, ENFPs like a little excitement in their lives, and are best matched with individuals who are comfortable with change and new experiences.
ENFPs are basically happy people. They may become unhappy when they are confined to strict schedules or mundane tasks. Consequently, ENFPs work best in situations where they have a lot of flexibility, and where they can work with people and ideas. Many go into business for themselves. They have the ability to be quite productive with little supervision, as long as they are excited about what they’re doing.
They have a strong need to be independent, and resist being controlled or labelled. They need to maintain control over themselves, but they do not believe in controlling others. Their dislike of dependence and suppression extends to others as well as to themselves.
ENFPs are charming, ingenuous, risk-taking, sensitive, people-oriented individuals with capabilities ranging across a broad spectrum. They have many gifts which they will use to fulfill themselves and those near them, if they are able to remain centered and master the ability of following through.
