Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is to make the theory of psychological types described by Jung understandable and useful in people's lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random behaviour is actually orderly and consistent, being due to differences in the way individuals use their perception and judgement.

I am a certified practitioner of MBTI Step I and Step II Instruments, having been trained by the Centre for Applications of Psychological Type (CAPT) in 2009.

My MBTI type is: ENFP - Extraverted Intuition with Introverted Feeling 

ENFP description:

  • Curious, creative and imaginative
  • Energetic, enthusiastic and spontaneous
  • Keenly perceptive of people and of the world around them
  • Appreciative of affirmation from others; readily express appreciation and give support to others
  • Likely to value harmony and goodwill
  • Likely to make decisions based on personal values and empathy with others
  • Usually seen by others as personable, perceptive, persuasive and versatile

ENFPs are enthusiastic innovators, always seeing new possibilities in the world around them. Their world is full of possible projects or interests they want to pursue. Imaginative, high-spirited and ingenious, they are often able to do almost anything that interests them. They are confident, spontaneous and flexible, and often rely on their ability to improvise. They value home, family, friendships, creativity and learning.

ENFPs with others

  • ENFPs are skilful in dealing with people and often have remarkable insights into possibilities
  • They look for the potential in others and then help them develop that potential
  • They are good at expressing appreciation and giving support
  • ENFPs enjoy meeting people from different cultures
  • They value harmony and goodwill; they will adapt to others’ needs and wishes when possible
  • They have a large circle of friends or acquaintances and sometimes don’t distinguish between the two
  • ENFPs are perceptive about the attitudes of others, aiming to understand rather than judge people.
