Understanding an ENFJ

What is an ENFJ (Extrovert, INtuitive, Feeler, Judgment)?

They’re considered “The Protagonists” due to their leadership qualities and ability to command attention when necessary. Here’s the breakdown of the great and mighty ENFJs.

ENFJs are the leaders, the guides to society, the ones who make the rules and make sure everyone is accountable for them. They’re charismatic, and believe in the power of the people. They love making change, and encouraging others to do so as well. They’re good at communicating with people, but also know how to appeal to a wide array of individuals who may think differently than your average ENFJ.

While ENJFs may be perceived as having it all together, they do not always have it together. In fact, their self-esteem is constantly fluctuating, and they have a tendency to over-idealize things to the point of disappointment. They also tend to be too selfless, and stretch themselves too far for causes they find to be worthwhile. They hold themselves to very high standards and when those standards aren’t met, they lose their inward confidence in themselves and their ability to lead.
