10 Signs You Are An ENFP Personality Type

Signs ENFP Personality Type

5. Lively and dynamic.

ENFPs love meeting new people, and they love it, even more, when they get to forge connections with them. They are naturally expressive and outgoing people and add to that their energetic personality and you have a winning recipe. They are social animals, who never miss a chance to mingle with people and astound them with their dynamic nature.

Always brimming with new and interesting ideas, they are always eager to share them with people. Because they are not close-minded, they are never stuck in their ways and are always open to thinking about and accepting new ideas, even if it’s not their own.

6. Social and exceptional communicators.

The ENFP personality type has amazing social skills and people skills, that help them get along with just anyone and everyone. Their social personality and exceptional communication skills also help them express their ideas to people very easily.

One of the best things about ENFPs is that they are equally good at deep conversations as well as small talk. So now you can see why it’s never really that challenging for them to have amazing conversations, no matter where they go?

7. Lack of discipline and unfocused.

ENFPs are very creative and imaginative beings with a thousand ideas swirling around in their heads. But the problem is that they never act on those ideas, and hardly ever follow through with them. Most of the time, other people are brought in to make their ideas a reality, but that doesn’t seem to hold the same magic.

They are so stuck up in their initial energy and enthusiasm, that by the time they are actually supposed to work on their ideas and make them a reality, they lose interest. Another thing that you will notice about an ENFP is that they will start new projects before even finishing the previous ones. Due to all this, most of their innovative and good ideas fail to come to fruition and end up being shelved.

8. Approval seeking and low self-confidence.

Even though they are very talented, intelligent, and creative, ENFPs still suffer from an inherent inferiority complex, due to which they believe they are not good enough. This leads to them always looking for approval from others, even if they don’t need it at all. They might be the brightest bulb in the room, but most of the time, they don’t realize it.

Naturally, this approval seeking behavior leads to low self-confidence, low self-esteem and low self-worth. They always want to be loved by everyone, and when that doesn’t happen, they feel like they have done something wrong, or that they are simply not good enough.

9. Disorganized and messy.

There is one thing that you will never see and that is an ENFP being organized and tidy. ENFPs thrive in chaotic and messy environments, and they don’t see any problem with that. They feel the most comfortable in surroundings like this, but the other people in their life get frustrated and annoyed with them.

No matter how much someone might try to guide them and push them towards having a more planned and tidy approach, they will just not do it. This unorganized attitude of theirs sometimes makes them forget important things, such as important appointments, dates, phone calls, reminders, and what not.

10. Open-minded and kind.

ENFPs are open-minded and warm people, who never fail to make someone feel loved and cared for. They are genuinely nice human beings who try to do good for others and help them be the very best version of themselves. ENFPs have this unique talent of making everyone feel welcome and accepted.

Their warm and cozy behavior makes people come to them again and again for advice, support, and guidance. Charming and understanding to a fault, it’s no wonder that they are always the most popular ones in the room.
