ENFJ – Making long-term decisions based on what is good for all
Written by Catherine Rains
Driven by Extraverted Feeling, those who prefer ENFJ make decisions as much by other people’s values and what is good for the group, as by their own values and what is good for them. Naturally inclined to create harmony in their environment, they also want to support the long term development of individuals and the team in which they are working. Their preferences for NF make them motivated to make a meaningful, long-term difference in the world and their choice of careers usually reflects this desire. Careers identified as attractive to this type by those that filled out my survey (at a recent MBTI® Certification Program) include: Career Counseling, College Recruiting, Training and Development, Alumni Director, Sales and Marketing, High Education Administration, Leadership Development, Motivational Speaker, Teacher, Counselor, all the helping professions.
Call to those of you who prefer ENFJ – what others careers have you been attracted to? The more we add to this list the better and feel free to repeat what is already listed above. We’re looking for the most comprehensive list possible so that other types fully understand what careers feel most natural to those of you who prefer ENFJ.
