My Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

Most recently taken March, 2015,  my MBTI type is ENFP – The Inspirer.  Warmly enthusiastic and imaginative. See life as full of possibilities. Make connections between events and information very quickly, and confidently proceed based on the patterns they see. Want a lot of affirmation from others, and readily give appreciation and support. Spontaneous and flexible, often rely on their ability to improvise and their verbal fluency.

E - Extraversion

People who prefer Extraversion tend to focus their attention on the outer world of people and things.

N - Intuition

People who prefer Intuition tend to take in information from patterns and the big picture and focus on future possibilities.


F - Feeling

People who prefer Feeling tend to make decisions based primarily on values and on subjective evaluation of person-centered concerns.


P - Perceiving

People who prefer Perceiving tend to like a flexible and spontaneous approach to life and prefer to keep their options open.
