And yes, I am a ENFP”¦Just as I thought.

I recently took the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).  A sophisticated interpretive personality test.  I was validated to see the results.  For the people with ENFP preferences, life is creative adventure full of exciting possibilities.  Keenly perceptive about people and insightful about the present and future.  They experience a wide range of feelings and intense emotions.  They need affirmation from others and readily give appreciation and support.

ENFP’s are good at understanding how people and groups work and are persuasive and compelling in pursuing what is important to them.  They are adaptable, blooming where they are planted.  Their energy and enthusiasm encourage others to bloom as well.

We are known as innovators, curious, creative, and imaginative.  We find meaning and significance readily, and see connections that others don’t.

A couple of decades back I had taken this same test.  It was similar but showed I could use some work on analysis and administration.  So I spent the last 20 years working on those traits.  So much so that a colleague of mine thought I was ESTJ.  Which is logical, analytical, and objectively critical.  He was very surprised to see my results.

When coaching for businesses I strongly suggest getting the Leader Teams assessed with the likes of Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator.

Having a team “know each others” strengths and weaknesses is smart business.
