When you watch various television programs, the differences in personality types of famous celebrities and other public figures are very noticeable. There are performers, achievers, counselors, introverts and extroverts among others. You could easily distinguish them even with just a few minutes of watching a particular program.
One of the most interesting personality types are those of famous achievers in their respective fields such as Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan and Peyton Manning, among others. Do you know that they share a similar personality type? Based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the personality type of these famous figures is ENFJ which stands for Extraversion, Intuition, Feeling and Judging.
ENFJ is just one of the 16 different personality types identified by the MBTI. David Keirsey, a renowned psychologist suggested that only approximately two to five percent of all people have this type of personality. Aside from the famous personalities just mentioned, you may also recognize Dr. Lisa Cuddy in the program “Dr. House,” Steve Keaton in “Family Ties,” Faye Valentine in “Cowboy Bebop,” and Jules Winnfield in “Pulp Fiction.”
Based on the definitions of ENFJ, Extraversion means that this personality has great people skills. They are warm, caring and affectionate on others. They are also outgoing and enjoy the company of others. Being on a social setting makes them feel more energized. Intuition means that they are always thinking ahead of time and into the future, rather than worrying about the present. Sometimes, they place too much focus on greater goals, causing them to lose their sight on the present and most immediate needs. When making decisions, they often put important considerations on personal feelings rather than objective criteria. Their primary concern is more often dependent on how a decision can affect others. Finally, Judging in their personality describes their organizational and communication skills. They are organized and rely on careful planning. In their work, they feel to be in control if they are able to stick to their schedule.
ENFJ has numerous strengths, which makes many ENFJ relationships successful compared to other relationships such as INFP relationships. ENFJs are warm, affectionate, loyal, and are driven to meet the needs of others. They are also inspirational and motivational, always helping other people bring out the best in them. On the negative side, they have the tendency to become overprotective, controlling and manipulative. Sometimes, they also forget about social protocol and neglect themselves for the sake of other people.
As lovers, ENFJs are committed to their spouses or partners and are dedicated to make their relationships successful. They are also serious about their commitments. As parents, they are serious about parenting roles and are hands-on in teaching their children about values and goals. They also make a great friend as they always support and help bring out the best of others. They are fun to be with and always seek to develop close relationships with their friends.
There is so much to like about the personalities of ENFJ people. That is what makes many of them become successful leaders and motivators. Although they may also have negative traits, it is truly a treasure if you meet someone who has this personality.
