    Default The sacrificial ENFj [type description for socion.info]

    ENFjs are the self-sacrificial martyrs of the types; they love to laugh, and they love to make people happy. No other type can offer love, loyalty, and support in such a way as the ENFj. Though often surrounded by friends and supporters, they can feel lonely, living in a dark world of superficial supplications. They offer, and ask not ... leaving themselves an empty shell; they are the unreluctant givers of the types.

    ENFjs typically manifest an excellent intuitive understanding of people, and can influentially provoke desired reactions from others to suit their desires and purposes, if deemed necessary. For example, it is not all that uncommon to find female ENFjs testing the metal of potential male suitors, placing them in odd verbal situations in which they must exhibit their own inner qualities to them; sometimes even placing themselves at odds with the other, provoking tension. One the other hand, ENFjs may use their influential intuitive understandings in order to say all the right things at all the right times, thus baiting others to make decisions that may not have made otherwise. Because of this fact, they also make exceptional orators and use their excellent communicative abilities to relay concepts in a vivid style that can captivate those listening, molding their own style of speech to suit the perceptions and stature of others.

    While less mature ENFjs may use their natural gifts for wrongfully manipulative means, most generally direct good intentions towards others. ENFjs have excellent people skills, and make great councilors and conflict avoidance specialist. They can intuitively gauge the strengths and flaws of others and use their intuitive insight to see forthcoming danger, and how to appropriately act to in response. However, they may be easily hurt and blame themselves when ideas and relationship do not go on as planned; they can be sensitive to criticism and may react unfavorably towards labels or unsolicited advice.

    ENFjs love people, especially children. However, they may be suspicious of strangers and could demonstrate reservation towards those foreign to them. In social situations, they might take time out to assess the hierarchal order of groups or where they stand in a group; this results in the fact that ENFjs are typically group oriented big-picture people. They seek to enrich and admire other people for their abilities, and are willing to support them in that. ENFjs look up to and admire those that they respect. Although, while some ENFjs could look down on those who do not fit above their own social standing, most show sympathy and support for those who they find to be at a disadvantage, and want to help them. ENFjs like 'win-win' solutions and tend to seek out the company of others who display any various forms of assertive positivity; however, many have problems adapting to new situations as they stand, and may lack an ability to appropriately adapt to new or changing social environments. Because of this, they seek stable friendships; they make loyal companions and maintain life long relationships with those they trust.

    One potential problems almost all ENFjs face is a general lack of the expression of their own identity; they can get so caught up in understanding the needs of others that they often times fail to do the things that would naturally define them as individuals. In result, some could adapt 'fake-it-to-make-it' approaches or mold to societies like a chameleons. Some ENFjs are so bad at this ability, that if you lent them an item, they may claim it as their own. ENFjs fitting these credentials should not be fully trusted.

    ENFjs make exceptionally good orators, and can explain concepts well. They make great debaters, and can convince others of their ideas. They make great leaders, though others tend to unwittingly follow. They make great teachers and care providers; because of their physique, they can possess an affinity for scarves, hats, and trinkets.

    Anyone willing to comment?

    By the way, I am a little unsure of this description, as there might be some type bias ... I based it upon 3 ENFjs I knew from college, and one of them was a girl who had the hots for me in result of the relations of benefit. I think I led her on a little ...

    This could be redone. It is a bit garbled.

    These two sections went from sorta to wtf?

    I agree that bias is present because Im noticing a pattern of positive/negative rather than neutral truth. It is a good start but revision is definitely needed.

    The only reason I even wrote that description was because I did not know any ENFjs in this forum. I have been asking the various types to write their own descriptions.

    Since you are ENFj, would you mind writting a description for the http://socion.info website? I would ask you through pm, but you are not registered.

    I'll have to take a pass. I actually did think about it. The only reason I'd do it is to give some clarity and decrease stereotype. When I went over it in my head it sounded like it could describe anyone lol. Plus I would probably through out the Socionics/MBTI/Keirsey/etc mumbo jumbo and go straight to the function order which seems to go against this site's agenda for Socionics.
