Illustrations of Type – ENFP

Illustrations of Type – ENFP

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 ENFP personality type preferences.

Their energetic, optimistic approach comes across clearly.

Their dominant function, Extraverted Intuition (Ne), shows up as they express a focus on embracing possibilities.

Their auxiliary function, Introverted feeling (Fi) is also demonstrated in their focus on relationships, people, and authenticity. People who prefer Fi often talk about values as an anchor, root, or compass: something personal that quietly guides them in their lifestyle choices.

An interesting process note, the group did not plan to draw a tree with arms, rather this image started as a scalloped circle and then developed as they continued to describe themselves within the group. A great example of a successful emergent process.

You may also enjoy looking at how other ENFP groups have completed this illustration of type exercise.

If you are interested in seeing how people with different type preferences complete this exercise, check out the Illustrations of Type series.
