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 dominant function, Extraverted Intuition (Ne) as well as their auxiliary function, Introverted Feeling (Fi) shows up in their description as they express their interest in discussing topics such as growth, change, development and the future.

People who prefer ENFP may be excited and distracted by multiple options, possibilities, and topics.


Other people, especially those who prefer using Judging, may take a more task and goal focused approach.

This J/P difference can be frustrating to both groups. Those who prefer Intuition and Perceiving may feel their ideas are being shut down or ignored and those who prefer Judging may see the Perceivers open-ended approach as a detriment to getting things done.

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.
