Almost all descriptions of ENFP start out with the phrase “warm and friendly” which I think makes me sound like a Lab (I do have two of them though….).
I decided to re-take the Meyers Briggs test earlier, just to confirm that my personality meter hasn’t moved. And it hasn’t. I am unusually balanced between Introverted and Extroverted and Thinking and Feeling, but apparently there is little difference between an ENTP and ENFP anyway.
The gist of my personality is summed up here “Their greatest difficulty is not in initiating projects, but in choosing among so many possibilities, setting realistic boundaries, establishing priorities and correctly assessing resources.”
And here : “ENFPs dislike routine work and want a variety of tasks and challenges. They prefer to set their own schedule and chafe when saddled with excessive regulations or mundane details. They seek out fun, novel tasks that allow them to be imaginative and relate to other people in an unstructured, supportive way.”
Suggestions include Writer, Actor, Dancer, Event Coordinator (not that crazy), Photographer (would be awesome), Counselor, Entrepreneur (yes please), and weirdly enough, Computer Programmer or Engineer.
I feel like the time to pick a career might be over, and I might just need to make shit, sell it, and get on with it. My imaginary dream day is to spend time making stuff, walking about, and then going treasure hunting at estate sales for things to re-sell.
It doesn’t sound crazy, right?
