It is often difficult to try and describe your own personality traits. In fact, all I did was take a personality test online and the results are….interesting to say the least. If you are interested in taking the same personality test I took just look for the link at the bottom of this post.
As it turns out I have an ENFP personality, a campaigner. I am extroverted, intuitive, emotional, prospective, and assertive.
The website states:
The ENFP personality is a true free spirit. They are often the life of the party, but unlike Explorers, they are less interested in the sheer excitement and pleasure of the moment than they are in enjoying the social and emotional connections they make with others. Charming, independent, energetic and compassionate, the 7% of the population that they comprise can certainly be felt in any crowd.
Certain strengths of my type of personality are curiosity, observant, energetic, enthusiastic, excellent communicator, I know how to relax, I am very popular and friendly (Funny though, I was never popular in school). From my perspective, I am what these strengths are. I consider myself very optimistic in every thing I do. The glass is not half empty, it just means there is room to dunk your cookies in!
Along with the strengths the website also list weaknesses. Those include, poor practical skills, find it difficult to focus, overthink things, get stressed easy, highly emotional, and independent to a fault. I agree with most of these weaknesses except for one. I used to get stressed early but I realized that it was pointless in getting over stressed about. It raise my blood pressure and only made me upset. In times of high stress I simply remind myself to have patience and that it will work itself out in some way.
Having friendships with an ENFP personality is something that all could benefit from. the website states:
ENFPs tend to get deeply involved in others’ lives, going to great lengths and efforts to be the selfless, caring and supportive people they are, and all the while forget to take care of themselves. Both in terms of basic needs like financial stability and rest, as well as more emotional needs like mutual understanding and reciprocation, ENFP personalities tend to give much more of themselves than most are even capable of giving back. This sort of imbalance isn’t sustainable, as (seemingly) one-sided generosity often leads to criticism and resentment on both sides.
The website goes along into saying how well ENFPs are at parenthood and workplace. It is great place to go and find your greatest personality traits and use them to your advantage. I encourage you to go and find out your own personality traits!
Til next time!
