Illustrations of Type – ENTP and ENFP

Illustrations of Type – ENTP and 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 combined group with ENFP and ENTP preferences.

This exercise always generates lots of energy in ENP groups as they engage their dominant function of Extraverted Intuition (Ne). Ideas are mentioned at least 7 times in this poster as the group depicts people discussing and creating concepts.

The winding path and colorful images are common themes for participants with these preferences. Groups who prefer Extraversion tend to include multiple people in their illustration.

In this example you can see the energy around interacting with people and ideas as well as a focus on the big picture and a plan for the future.

I have posted several other ENTP illustrations and ENFP illustrations.

Take a look and notice the unstructured, often colorful and visually interesting (or you may think chaotic ☺) approach people with these preferences take when completing this exercise.

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