Alas another ENFP bouncing off the walls ! lol 24 years old (but a pup! Though I suspect I always will be...) English btw
I'd say I'm a fairly typical ENFP. I pride myself on ability to read people extremely well (I'm getting good at guessing peoples types now) and help them find solutions that suit their values and thinking. I also really love bringing the best out of people, the most confidence, their best ideas, the passion that may be dormant. I like to think of myself as a catalyst, I can't do it for them, but I can be the rocket up their butt that makes them see that they could do it all along.
I used be an INFP (emphasis on the I) but the E is pretty new (past year, 2 years) and enjoying having the outgoing streak.
Also used to be a Type 4, but am now a 2.
It's been helpful for me to identify as an ENFP as it's helped address the problems I have sticking to structure and routine. Instead I've found work that suits me, a style of doing things that means I don't get bored and still manage to get (most) things done in the end.
I've moved into web design (liking the php work here guys ) and performing as a Robbie Williams tribute act. Pays enough to live and gives me the free time to not feel so totally drained by the rat race. Plus it allows me the freedom to work on my music projects and film scripts (that are finally being picked up).
Thanks to Derren Brown, I am obsessed with reading people and analysing them down to a single brain cell but it has helped enormously with socialising, romance and having more fun.
Because of the dramatic change in my confidence, I've ended up 'training' people in confidence and raising theirs, feeling that I am responsible for them and their well being.
I do like to think of myself as a leader, but more the morale leader, keeping my 'men' in good spirits. I can't organise a night on the lash in a brewery! I leave that to people who won't mess it up.
I can't stand to see people not reaching their potential. It actually saddens me.
Anyways, I'm sure you've heard alot of this before from ENFPs so Hi!
Nice to meet you all!
