Illustrations of Type – ENFJ

Illustrations of Type – ENFJ

By Donna Dunning

In my MBTI® Certification workshops participants respond to the instruction -“Describe your type using words, phrases, or pictures.” I find these visual representations of type preferences help illustrate individual differences.

Here is a photo of a response from a group with ENFJ preferences.

Using images to tell a story, the poster shows the dominant function of Extraverted Feeling (Fe).

The interconnected people, the encouraging hiker saying “You can do it!”, the drops in the beaker acting as a catalyst, the open door, the person on a platform, and the picture frame including a smiling face, ideas, and values, all show the ENFJ approach of being interested in others and nurturing and developing potential.

Using abstract images and metaphors as examples, rather than lists of words, also highlights the Intuitive auxiliary function (Ni) of their personality type preferences.

Yes, as the poster says, ENFJs are indeed awesome.

You may find it interesting to look at and compare how other ENFJ groups complete this ENFJ Illustrations of Type exercise.

You also may be interested in seeing how people with different personality type preferences complete this exercise. You can do this by checking out the entire Illustrations of Type Series.
