Illustrations of Type – ES/NFJ

Illustrations of Type – ES/NFJ

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 of participants with ESFJ or ENFJ personality type preferences. I put people who have these preferences together because they share a dominant function of Extraverted Feeling (Fe).

In Their Own Words

The flip-chart lists many of the words associated with their EFJ pattern. Notice the focus on people, planning, and communication. See how the people in the group have focused on their similarities rather than differences, which is typical for people with these preferences. The only exception is the phrase “big picture” which they show a solid line (for the ENFJ) and a dotted line (for the ESFJ) – still connecting, but showing a greater emphasis on this for the participants who prefer iNtuition.

You may also enjoy looking at how other ESFJ or ENFJ 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.
