how to recognize an ENFj

There are many excellent descriptions of the ENFj (Ethical Intuitive Extrovert) out there, so I'll try to refrain from a rehash of all of those articles. But I'd like to take this opportunity to provide some of my personal observations of the type and how to know if you're in the presence of one.
  1. The ENFj is dramatic. They have a strong presence that demands attention and are quite capable of influencing others' emotions, to the point of sometimes being manipulative. The ENFj has a romanticized view of things like love and loyalty and seeks intensity in every moment, be it in a happy or sad way.
  2. The ENFj is a great orator. As an extension of the first point, ENFj's have a natural, powerful speaking ability and are very charismatic.
  3. The ENFj is [internally] high-strung. They are naturally pessimistic and spend a lot of time reflecting on their problems and the problems of their friends and family. Their Intuition is biased towards negative scenarios and they are, as a rule, internally sensitive and doubtful of themselves.
  4. The ENFj gives the impression of being refined/noble/aristocratic/arrogant. They tend to carry themselves quite elegantly and this, combined with their charisma, gives off a noble impression. They are also respectful of hierarchy both in work and social circles and tend to speak down to people they believe to be in a lesser position.
  5. The ENFj is people-oriented. Left alone, the ENFj is prone to brooding and will descend into dark thoughts--they thus requires other people to bring up their spirits. They love to socialize, especially in group settings.
  6. The ENFj is [generally] thin and well-postured. This is true of males and females. Their clothing style often varies between casual and proper, but is always striking (and not always in a good way)--they can often appear mismatched or over/underdressed.

  1. Hello I was wondering if you could make a "how to recognize..." for ESFP please? That's the only one you're missing (I LOVE this site btw! So informative ^^)
