ENFPs at their best

At their best, ENFPs are inspiring visionaries and natural leaders. They’re often excited by life, no matter what it brings their way.

People with ENFP preferences can easily shift and adapt to new challenges. 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. ENFPs are also inspiring to others, with the result that they often become leaders at work or in their personal lives.

Potential development areas for ENFPs

Their zest for life makes ENFPs fun to be around, but this also means they’re prone to extreme emotions—especially when they’re stressed.

They have a tendency to overcommit themselves in their excitement to take on new challenges. This may lead to them abandoning projects, struggling to prioritize, or burning out.
