  1. Michael–i couldnt agree more with this list of enfp values! Warm regards to you, Lorin

    • Thanks so much Lorin. I hope you are well. Great to hear from you.

  2. Spot on! Life is a marvelous adventure/journey. I have a clear preference for Process vs. Content. My sweetheart of 35 years (ISTJ) helps me understand that the journey is also about the destination.

    • Thanks for the comment. I’m glad to hear you found the post useful.

  3. Great idea for a series of posts Michael. Thanks for writing these. I look forward to reading the other types. As an ENFP, I personally agree with most of these, but would have placed either creativity or learning ahead of financial security in my own list.

    • Thanks Donna. As a fellow NF, I tend to agree with you. Hope you are well. Every time a Dave Mathews song is on the radio, I think of you.

    • I’m an ENFP. Friendship, health, achievement/autonomy,and creativity mean the most to me–not necessarily in that order. Having insurance through Medicaid/Medicare means a great deal to me. Much of teaching career was spent as a no-health-insurance adjunct instructor or substitute teacher. If my research gets ignored at home, I just post or tweet it and make professional friends that way; then go have a beer with buddies.

  4. A great idea to connect values to personality. I agree with Donna in such way as I would have a tie between learning/financial security.

    • Thanks Robert!
