May be..I dont know much about his biography other than that he was very solitary and a morose individual..he didnt have this ..active...larger than life--upbeat force that dwells in most ENFPs...
And Santa Claus..doesnt he resemble more a conventional drone rather than a naive bliss seeking venturer with chief concern of bringing paradise to Earth?
Perhaps he meant Michaelangelo the Ninja Turtle?
And Santa is ESFJ. Duh.
"I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality." -Martin Luther King, Jr.
Michaelangelo the ninja turtle was definitely ENFP!!
I was wondering if any of the great polymaths like Da Vinci were ENFP. We seem to be quite a suitable type for it, because we tend to explore in all directions, and universal truths and understanding seem to be the goal. In a way there is still a bit of polymath in ENFPs these days. While most INTPs I know do well with their first degree then PhD, and spend 25 years in the same job, ENFPs normally do multiple degrees in different fields and have an average of about 2 years in each career area. Polymath types from what I've seen would tend to be ISTP, ENFP and the other ones who have a broad range of skills but classically avoid specialisation. Also I read Da Vinci was a humanist vegetarian who saved caged animals . I could see myself drawing a man in a circle too, and probably giggling after it fitted. There is always a view of these greats as thinkers lost in deep thought with their chin on their clenched fist. But most great thinkers I've known are free because of it. Einstein out on his boat, Michelangelo taking the money and running, then painting people high up in the church in hell on the Sistine chapel. They were laid back, playful, fun loving, made the most of life.
Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.
I'd ve never thought of Pushkin as an ENFP... From what I remember learning about him, he used to be quite the perfectionist. They have like pages of his work with a lot of parts scratched out and things being rephrased where he constantly was looking for the exact perfect word in the sentence. Also, from what I was taught, he was quite a serious and quiet guy...
Oprah- Not only can she move a crowd, she is a billionaire who makes major contributions to society. She's someone I HIGHLY admire for who she is, her intentions, & how she's accomplished her goals. Amazing..
