    We are always curious as to what people really think about us so let us have it!


    anything at all....
    In general, I've nothing against them. My brother is one, and we get along very well and always have. In fact I don't know anyone I'd rather go travelling with than him and another ENFP I know.

    If I were going to say the one quibble, the one thing he does that can be annoying - though I've no room for complaint because I do it too and I think it's an Ne thing - it's when he goes into persuasion mode, and tends to bulldoze people into doing what he wants, to sorta bamboozle people so that they don't know whether they're coming or going and find themselves going along with whatever he says, not entirely sure why or happy with it but unable to figure out why. He does it by convincing people that the most decent thing to do, the nice thing to do, the kindest thing that would make everyone happy and be fair, is what he's saying. I do it by saying what I'm suggesting is the only logical choice, that anything else would result in disaster, that it's the only thing that'll work. When we team up together to persuade someone, we could sell snow to an Eskimo.

    But I do think he pushes it a lot more than me. Long past the point where I'm backing off and thinking, "No, c'mon, he doesn't want to, leave him alone now", he's got his mind fixed on this challenge of persuading this guy, and wont let up until he does.

    But that's just 'cause we want everyone to love us, so we're constantly changing to suit everyone else! :rolli:

    Maybe you need to be more flexible.

    Many years ago, a former boss of mine was an ENFP. Very nice guy, entertaining and brilliant, but a terrible boss. Always chatting away with people, always smiling, but never got anything organized or done in the department. We lived in chaos for years and everybody sighed a breath of relief when he left.

    I'm supposed to get along very well with ENFP's but I don't think I know any personally. The ENFP with the INFJ on here seems nice though.

    I disagree... I know several ENFP's who make GREAT leaders. It's all a question of balancing your functions. ENFP's can be really good at inspiring others and motivating them.

    I would assume a big factor would be whether they are a leader who is making a lot of important decisions or a leader who is implementing the decisions made by the higher-ups.

    I agree.

    One important quality of leadership is the ability to delegate responsibility wisely. Having personal shortcomings does not have to hamper good leadership if the leader has enough wisdom to employ people to cover tasks in which (s)he is less proficient. An inability to perceive and admit flaws is probably the worst leadership quality.
