Do you have an ENFP version of This Us Who I Am?
Not yet. It will be up soon.
“I wanted to retire. From what I was doing, you know? Be a good guy for once, a family man. So, I bought a big house. Came here, put my feet up, and thought I’d be a dad like all the other dads. My kids, would be like the kids on TV. We could play ball and sit in the sun. But well, you know how it is.”
"I’m very low-key. I don’t really blend in, so it’s difficult to go out in public. I like to do things that are kind of quiet, whether it’s a dinner at my house or a restaurant, or a movie night at home."
"I’m not an easy person to love. There are lots of times when I’m a very good boyfriend, but there are times when I’m useless. I mean, I’m a mess around the house. I talk nonstop. I become obsessed with things."
"I was always a very serious child. I remember being, like, 13 and the girls were like, ‘Felicity is going to kiss Ben on the school field.’ It’s amazing I had any friends! Because I remember saying ‘Well, that’s stupid. It’s too young to mean anything. He doesn’t love her, and that’s just a waste of time.’"
I once saw this picture saying “I’m actually not funny. I’m just really mean, and people think i’m joking”, which i can relate to so, so much.
But what i can’t relate to is this stupid, litlle…
Damn, you see? That’s my problem, i get distracted too easily. There’s just so much stuff i want to talk about, it’s really hard for me to focus on this one particular thing.
I’m an extrovert, yes, even though in most situations i don’t seem like it. Unlike mr. Supreme Leader (yes, i’m talking about you, ENTJ), i prefer to talk to individuals, rather than groups. I hate group mentality, i feel insanely limited when doing group work, but at the same time, i really like social interaction. You see my problem?
But, as i mature, i definitely feel that establishing a common goal, working together as one is actually a very satisfying thing.
I love freedom. I dislike deadlines, tight schedules, or when others tell me what to do. Because of that, people often accuse me or lacking discipline, which is unfortunately true, in a way. I definitely should work on this.
I am The Originator.
I have a natural need to be in charge of everything i get involved in. If i can’t lead, i get discouraged really quickly, or do whatever it takes to seize power. I thrive in group work, brainstorms and such. I most definitely prefer to speak to several people at once, than have a 1 on 1.
I have a basic, but very strong idea of how i want my future to look like. I pursue this vision relentlessly.
I enjoy participating in physical activities, and i do pay attention to my appearance. Also, unlike my introverted cousin, INTJ, i actually enjoy working on several projects at once. The feeling of being completely overwhelmed with information is very freeing to me.
This, however, can have a really nasty side effect of me forgetting about the needs of my loved ones, and even my own. It feels as if my sense of responsibility is much stronger than anything else. It is essential for me to balance this. To know when to get into work mode, and when to turn back to an actual human being with typical human needs.
I am The Leader.
I am mostly focused on things that are pleasurable to me, things that nurture my soul, and feed me on an emotional level.
I am definitely interested in all things internal, but i pay more attention to the external world. I’m about things i can see, hear, taste, smell and touch. Thus, i pay attention to my physical appearance, i like to make my workplace or my house to look as aesthetic and pleasing to the eye as possible, and i definitely judge others based on their exterior.
I know what they say, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”- but why do the covers exist then? Exactly.
I have a general idea where i want to be in the future, and i work hard in the present moment to make it happen.
I can’t say i take pleasure out of being a leader, but i do have a tendency to tell people what to do.
My feelings are my own, i rarely share them with others, but my judgements are based purely on what feels right or wrong to me.
I am The Artist.
First of all, i like it when everything’s clean and neat. I really dislike mess, disorder etc. and and i just can’t work in an environment where people just don’t clean up after themselves.
I trust my experiences. I think there’s absolutely no way of telling what will happen in the future, and that’s why i feel it is best to just move forward, and learn as you go.People say that my mood changes a lot. I have to agree, in a way, as my attitude is very much dependant on the emotional atmosphere. If someone’s yelling at me, i will yell back louder, if someone’s nice to me, i will be the nicest person ever.
I like to play the devil’s advocate, and i think that is why my nickname is the “Defender” or “Guardian”. I really dislike when others gang up on someone. No matter the circumstances, i will always attempt to make everyone see things from a different perspective.
I’m usually very comfortable with what i have, and it’s hard for me to trust new ideas, or plans, unless there’s an actual need for change. As Voltaire once said, “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good”.
I am The Defender.
I am most definitely in touch with who i am, what i need, what makes me happy and what makes me sad. No matter what, i always try to follow my heart. My dream is to do something i love for a living. Wouldn’t that be just wonderful?
I don’t really like to talk much when i’m in a group. I prefer to stay on the side, and just play the role of the observer.
I can’t help but reflect upon my past from time to time. It’s just so uncomfortable to remind yourself of this one stupid thing, and feel embarassed about it in the present moment.
I can’t say i’m a natural leader, actually i really dislike being in that position. I’d rather follow, or just be my own boss.
I have a nasty tendency of doubting plans and ambitions of others.
I can’t say i’m a huge fan of physical activities. I much prefer to just sit down comfortably, read a book, or watch a movie, or do something i’m passionate about.
My biggest problem, i think, is my tendency to think that if something feels right, it automatically makes logical sense.
I am The Dreamer
