    Default ENFJ

    Hi everyone.

    I think I am a pretty typical ENFJ.

    I see how people fit, what motivates them, I like to help others and be a part of a cohesive team, and I am seen as exceptionally warm, calm and confident. I think that these perceptions of me are pretty accurate and are also how I see myself. I can see how other types see this type as manipulative. I cannot deny it - when I sense that a person is acting in a certain way because they are afraid / territorial / feeling a lack of confidence or whatever and I do something to make them feel reassured, that IS manipulation. I try to use my insights for good, but it is pretty arrogant of us to decide what people need and then lead them to it without their consent - and I would have to say, without them even being aware of it.

    I am often lonely because I dont often share my true feelings or passions with others as easily as I would like. This is partly because I dont want to hurt or negatively influence others, and partly because I fear my passion will fry other peoples minds. LOL! I am more easily bruised than I wish, and almost unable to forgive and forget.

    I am pretty comfy being an ENFJ but I wonder how others use the info provided by this personality profile to work on making changes in their lives. If I could change anything I would be more capable of letting go of resentment and mistrust when others hurt me.

    Seems like a great site, glad I found it!

    Hi! Great to meet you!

    I agree & I dont see myself as manipulative. In fact, I view it as healing and helping and I do it as naturally and automatically as I breath. However, after reading what some of the others posters write, I see that some of them dont dig it.

    It is lovely to have others who understand you. Thank you.

    I tried to help. I think what you may have uncovered is that ENFJs are not really portrayed in movies and films as characters, but are instead played by themselves.... they are often the people who are famous "personalities".

    Cheers!
