Illustrations of Type – ESFJ and ENFJ

Illustrations of Type – ESFJ and 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 combined ESFJ and ENFJ group.

Notice the phrase “decisions are based on people’s likely responses”. This is an interesting way of highlighting the dominant function of Extraverted Feeling (Fe).

People with these preferences tend to be in-tune with interpersonal dynamics and aware of people’s reactions.

Since they also call themselves “people pleasers”, they likely check-in regularly with others to ensure things are going well.

Do you have a Contributor in your life? Are they keenly aware of how you are responding to and managing situations? Are their perceptions usually accurate?

You may find it interesting to look at and compare how other groups with ESFJ and ENFJ preferences complete the activity.
