    Default NFs and Charisma

    Firstly, how would you define charisma? Which NF types exhibit it most/least and why? Are there different 'types' of charisma?


    Excuse, the inquisitiveness - I've read just about every NF article online...I'd like other answers from MBTI enthusiasts also! No-one else I know is into this

    I'll have to take a wait-and-see approach to this thread. I can't compose my thoughts unless I find someone to agree or disagree with. :P

    INFJ charisma: You're affected by it if you had no preconceived notion you wanted to be involved in something and all of a sudden are convinced it's part of your life mission. And you're not sure how it happened because the persuasion was so subtle...

    INFP charisma: You're affected if you find yourself fully and completely admiring the INFP for his/her stance or opinion whether or not you agree.

    ENFP charisma: You're stand-on-your-seat-and-cheer excited about whatever new idea the ENFP has come up with.

    ENFJ charisma: You've heard the speech and it's roused you to action. You're ready to get involved because that message was tailored just for you...

    i think charisma implies complexity as well as likability and perhaps intelligence. i don't think i've ever called someone stupid charismatic. we NF's do typically have those traits. we care about people (F) and we try to get through the layers as to why something is liked (N).

    ENFJ's are the most charismatic people in the world, IMO. Electrifying as public speakers.

    I don't know, I'm pretty shy..to the point where I am just a huge dork..but I mean..if I am really intimate, I guess I can be charismatic, but not enough to notice, I'm just speculating..
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Personality mirroring is an important aspect to charisma. I might guess that a E and a P will be the best out of the NF's at this. ENFP's also project enthusiasm and interest that could top other types. However, I think ENFJ's might eclipse ENFP's in certain aspects of charismatic personality.

    I would agree to this, as in my observation ENFPs are the most adaptible of the NFs to whatever social situation they find themselves in.
