365.162: Who I Am

That's who I am. An ENFP.
Tonight at Elevate we went through the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. This is so important, especially for people who intend to work in team settings, like, say on a missionary team! The more you can understand about others around you, the better your communication can be and more effective your ministry can be!
ENFP stands for Extroversion Intuition Feeling Perceiving.
Here are some descriptions of an ENFP:
  • Curious, creative, and imaginative
  • Energetic, enthusiastic, and spontaneous
  • Keenly perceptive of people and of the world around them
  • Want a lot of affirmation from others; readily express appreciation and give support to others
  • Likely to value harmony and goodwill
  • Likely to make decisions based on personal values and empathy with others
  • Usually seen by others as personable, perceptive, persuasive, and versatile
What do you think? Is it accurate to me?
If any of you friends have taken the Myers-Briggs, what are you? I just love to know this sort of thing (which is part of my "Intuition")!


  1. ENFP is RIGHT ON for you, Court! I love the Meyers-Briggs! When I took it about 6 yrs ago I was a ESTJ. Pretty sure if I took it today I would be a ESFJ.

  2. Mom-I can totally see you being both! E, S, and J for sure, but I see how you could oscillate between T and F. What is Dad? My guess is...INFJ. If that's true, where did I get my P??? :)

  3. Your and Clark's "P's" could be out of frustration of all those other "J's" in our family!!!!! Thank goodness you two helped straighten us out a bit! :-)

  4. I wonder if it has anything to do with out of the 5 of us, we're the only 2 who aren't first-borns??

  5. So, surprise, I'm also a ESTJ:) Probably not hard to figure that one out!

  6. I'm an infp - so basically we r almost the same!

  7. Ryan got three different results from self-evaluation, assessment, and reading the description page!!!! He and I assessed him as an ESTP, results said ENTP, from descriptions he seemed like an ENTJ. But I'm holding fast to ESTP.
    Susan--maybe that's why I like you so much--you're like my mom!
    Becca--I totally would have guessed that about you!!

  8. I need to hang out with Debi more - I'm also an EFJ who is borderline T and F! :)

  9. ESFJ...for me! Debi and I are soul mates for sure! The E is not super strong though, but the F and J are very strong!! SO much so that i have pulled Tim's P into less of a P...but ultimately he is still a P. You are right on for that description of your type though. i love that about you.

  10. Hey just found you through I heart faces and loved your pink photo entry, such gorgeous boys. I had to comment on this because I'm an ENFP too!! so great to meet fellow believers!!!

  11. The MB Manual explains that ENFP's encompass only 8.1% of the entire ARE unique!

  12. INFJ for me and ENTP for Clark - I love myers briggs - so cool

  13. although my I and E are split right down the middle

  14. Soooo...I was on RGJ's blog and saw she reads your blog so I headed over here and couldn't stop reading all your sweet posts and wonderful pictures. AND I'm an ENFP too. Distracted is one of our main gifts! :) amy younkins (worked with robin in SV)
