ENFP Personality Type ‘The Dreamer’


The ENFP Personality Type

The Extroverted, iNtuitive, Feeling Perceiving Type

The Dreamer

ENFPs dream and hope for a better world. Sometimes, they get disappointed because real world is never as good as things are in their head.

As an ENFP, you have strong morals and beliefs. If you believe people are being unfair or mean you’ll tell them. You don’t like injustice and you’re always going to march to the beat of your own drum.

The Dreamer in Flow

ENFPs find and seek their identity in potential. Potential connections, friendships, projects, journeys, adventures… Finding and seizing opportunities is key to this personality type, who hates missing out. The ENFPs are generally always in movement, thinking of ways to reach their goals.

Reality to them, is just a bouncing block, a tool you can use to come up with new ideas. They study the way the world works, and then they think of ways it could be different. Trying to transform and change things around them, they can rebel against convention and prefer to go against the flow.

The ENFP is an individualist and someone that will be less motivated to do something if they are forced to do it. You seek freedom and the right for creative self-expression, to be able to be fully yourself. Deep down, you need something more than that though. You need to feel completely self-reliant, and to be able to use your unstoppable will to get what you want. To find something consistent and reliable in the day to day chaos you experience.

The flow functions and the stress functions represent our primary identity and how we see ourselves. An ENFP on a good day may describe themselves as initiative rich, creative, free-spirited and authentic. But on a bad day, when under stress, they may come off as cold, reserved and bossy.

When their primary values are challenged and people stand in the way of the future they want, they will demonstrate force and willpower and intelligence, and careful critical thinking to get rid of anyone or anything in their way. The ENFP will either choose to deal with a situation naturally through their flow functions, or if that is not possible, through force and power and hard work.

In the ENFPs arsenal is the autopilot functions, which they employ as tools in their day to day lives readily to solve any problems that come up. They can eat up data and respond to changes and new events with ease and can argue towards any outcome they want. Normally, they will use systems as tools to reach their primary values.

They have strong, sometimes rigid ethical beliefs and tend to be uncompromising on matters of vision and humanitarian beliefs. If they want or care about something, they will not settle for anything less. To an ENFP, the self is something that needs to always be respected and never compromised on.
