ENFPs at their best

At their best, ENFP types are inspiring visionaries who are natural leaders. They can easily shift and adapt to new challenges and are excited by life, no matter what it brings their way.

Rather than becoming stressed or overwhelmed by new people or situations, they are inspired by new points of view and love to rise to the occasion. They like to find numerous solutions to a given problem. ENFPs are also inspiring to others, and they frequently become leaders at work or take on that role in their personal lives.

Potential development areas for ENFPs

While their zest for life makes ENFPs exciting for others to be around, they are also prone to extreme emotions, especially when under stress. They may also over-commit to projects because they are so excited by new challenges. This could lead to the ENFP abandoning those projects or becoming burned out and unable to determine which ones to prioritize.

Types and Stress

ENFPs and stress

ENFPs have big personalities. They frequently have dramatic changes in emotion, too. Things revolving around deadlines, organization, and micromanaging will stress the ENFP.

For example, people who identify as ENFP will likely become overwhelmed when they’re forced to make a decision before they’re ready, or if imposed deadlines interfere with their creative process. They also become stressed by rules within personal relationships and being forced into commitment or long-term plans they don’t agree with.

If you’re an ENFP personality type, you can try a few key things to balance these feelings of stress.
