How do you know if you are an ENFJ?

What does an ENFJ look like? People describe Advocates as charismatic, yet intense. You wear your heart on your sleeve and people can see that. You put your heart into everything you do and want to be at your best whenever you can. You know you're an Advocate because you:

  • Tend to make people your first priority. Sometimes you neglect your own needs.
  • You're confident around people - taking charge comes naturally to you.

  • You're insatiably curious. You never stop learning new things. You're open to even the more strange and bizarre theories of life.

What are the ENFJ Cognitive Functions?

Firstly, the Advocate is an Extroverted Feeling type. You primarily study the world as a humanitarian. The people are your tribe and you are the person responsible for taking care of the group.

Secondarily, you aspire to be an Introverted iNtuitive. You look to the future and to spirituality to provide answers so that you can guide people in the right direction.

Thirdly, you use Extroverted Sensing. You are alert and busy and you like to play and interact with other people in order to make things happen.

Finally, the Advocate struggles with Introverted Thinking. When stressed, you can become overly critical towards things. You start looking for flaws in yourself and other people. Recognise this pattern in yourself and try not to overwhelming yourself by thinking of everything that is wrong. Work through one problem at a time, and work to stay positive and believe in the best in yourself and other people.
