So I'm an ENFP...what are you?

Oh hey there bliggity blog. I missed you. I was so excited to do this Blogtember thing, and then I got sick.

So I'm a week late, but here goes.

Today's prompt from Jenni was about taking this personality test and seeing where you fall.

I am : 44% Extravert 38% Intuitive 50% Feeling and 44% Perceiving

ENFPs have what some call a "silly switch." They can be intellectual, serious, all business for a while, but whenever they get the chance, they flip that switch and become CAPTAIN WILDCHILD, the scourge of the swimming pool, ticklers par excellence. Sometimes they may even appear intoxicated when the "switch" is flipped.

Uh...yeah. I do that. Drives people nuts.

Basically, I like people a lot. I like to talk to them and share stories. I enjoy making people feel at ease and making people laugh. This is spot on. I like to connect with people I meet, even strangers. I've had some really awesome conversations waiting in line, with Starbucks barista's, and other random people I encounter.

I base a lot of my decisions in life on feelings. This may or may not be a good thing, but its definitely true. Apparently I'm a more mature ENFP, because I don't do crazy things like quit jobs based on those feelings. (Mom will be so proud.)

It did reinforce some things about my personality I need to work on. I'm not a detail person. I don't like to be bothered with things I perceive as mundane or trivial. Like schedules, bills, and household tasks. One of the write ups specifically said this is difficult for ENFP's family members. This is so true and an area where I often butted heads with my mother, and even JJ. There are things in my day to day like that I literally don't see. Because its seen and unimportant/boring it just doesn't exist or get done. I don't really like that about me, and this reinforces its something I need to work on. I can't teach Boomer to be an organized person, or expect her to follow through with chores and things of that nature when I don't. ( I wonder how many ENFPs are also diagnosed with ADD/ADHD?)

Also...this chick is a famous fictional ENFP

I'm not sure how I feel about that.

Back on the blog train so I'll see you all tomorrow!!!

They have a keen sense of right and wrong, especially in their area of interest and/or responsibility. They are noted for devotion to duty. Punctuality is a watchword of the ISTJ.

ISTJs are easily frustrated by the inconsistencies of others, especially when the second parties don't keep their commitments. But they usually keep their feelings to themselves unless they are asked. And when asked, they don't mince words. Truth wins out over tac

My mom talks about this test incessantly and always says she is an enfp like I should know what that is. Well, now I know! Maybe I should take this bad boy!

I may need to take this test. We are about to take DISC training at work and that should get interesting!

The Queen said...

Sevi.. DISC is fascinating... I have taken that test along with Personalysis and both have helped me developed personally and professionally and I've been in the work world a LOONG time compared to Miss Boom and friends....
