Who are ENFJs?
ENFJ stands for Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Judging, and it is one of the 16 personality types given by the Myers Briggs personality test.
ENFJs are known as the Protagonists due to their popularity, ability to mix with people, and their tendency to help everyone around them.
Because people tend to be drawn to strong personalities, and Protagonists usually radiate authenticity, concern, and altruism, these traits make them even more beloved to people around them.
In addition, they are often put in leading roles due to their traits of not being afraid to stand up and speak when they feel something needs to be said.
They are good at backing people up when they believe in them and they also find it natural and easy to communicate with others, especially in person.
The ENFJs Intuitive (N) trait helps them reach every mind, be it through facts and logic or raw emotion.
ENFJs are also good at seeing people’s motivations and seemingly disconnected events and are able to bring these things and events together and communicate them as a common goal.
They also have a mastery of communication skills and are often able to say exactly what they want and sway people well. This is one reason why these people are often in political, guide, or leadership roles which involves a degree of oratory and people skills.
ENFJ Anime Characters.
Tohru Honda is a well-known ENFJ anime character from the show Fruit Basket, where she plays the main protagonist.
The classic ENFJ traits that can be seen in Tohru are traits such as a kind heart and empathy.
She is also often extremely gentle, optimistic, and honest and is able to help anyone she meets and generally has a sunny and cheerful disposition. These are traits that make ENFJs so popular with people in general and therefore people often tend to flock to these people.
Tohru also doesn’t hold any grudges toward those who have wronged her.
Despite her early traumas and issues she has faced, she always has a smile on her face and continues to be hardworking, dedicated, independent, and positive.
Tohru embodies many ENFJ traits and it fits her role as a protagonist rather well.
Minato Namikaze is an ENFJ anime character on the show Naruto, and he is characterized by traits like respect for his enemies and being fair and honest in his fights.
He resembles the protagonist, Naruto, in a lot of ways, but he is humble and kind in his attitude, much like any ENFJ.
Minato also tends to have a very indomitable spirit, and this is also quite reminiscent of ENFJ personalities.
He is also a typical ENFJ when it comes to his romantic relationship, and makes for a reliable and good husband to his wife.
Akari Akaza is a character on the show Yuri Yuri, and she can be typified as an ENFJ anime character due to her traits of niceness and friendliness and her desire to be the center of attention.
She is often ignored due to her small size but this is hardly something ENFJs usually struggle with, given their boisterous and big personalities, however, she does tend to make friends very easily everywhere she goes and this makes her a rather strong ENFJ anime character.
She tends to be easily scared, which again, is not a trait one might often find in an ENFJ, however, she is not capable of doing wrong by anyone and aims to please people in general.
These are some traits that make Akari a pretty good personification of ENFJ traits.
Junko Enoshima is a character on Danganrompa, and she is an ENFJ anime character owing to traits like talkativeness and a carefree attitude.
She is also a charismatic person and her presence is fairly notable. ENFJs are often seen as people who cannot be ignored, and they make their presence known very well with their carefully chosen words and the charisma that flows out of them uninterrupted.
She has some negative traits as well and to say that she is a purely ENFJ anime character would be wrong, as she can be manipulative and cunning to achieve her goals, as well as toxic, on occasion.
However, it is worth noting that the kind of massive character arc anime characters have, they tend to undergo major changes, and often the personality traits they may start out with may not be the ones they eventually display.
Another character from Danganronpa, Makato Naegi is someone who shows extraordinary optimism and kindness.
He also happens to be insecure about himself but despite his insecurities, he is able to be supportive and forgiving, which can be some core ENFJ traits.
His most ENFJ trait perhaps is the ability to reach out to even the most antagonistic and unfriendly people and take them under his happy and shiny optimism.
This is a trait one might often see in individuals who have ENFJ personalities, and this puts him squarely among other ENFJ anime characters.
He also abhors physical harm and despair, which is yet another ENFJ trait, as these people tend to be altruistic and optimistic, and do not want to engage in unsavory things like fighting or negativity.
Ryota Kise is shown to be somewhat dramatic but at the same time extremely outgoing and friendly, and he can be somewhat competitive as well.
Ryota Kise is an Anime character from the show Kuroko No Basuke, and he is depicted as an easy-going person who takes his game of basketball very seriously.
He likes to learn and when on the court he wants to be good at what he does. These are come key ENFJ characteristics.
Some things about Ryota that stand out as not being ENFJ may be his tendency to be a better player by himself rather than be a part of the team and put the team first, which is not something an ENFJ would do often unless they had some other personality traits that went against ENFJ or some events in their life that have affected this one particular domain of their personality.
Mark Evans is a character on the show Inazuma Eleven, and he shows traits such as being a part of the team, training extremely hard for what he does, a cheerful and outgoing tendency, and an energetic outlook to what he does, which is playing soccer.
ENFJs tend to be very cheerful and energetic in the way they go about achieving their goal, and they tend to rope in their teammates or those around them in this tendency as well.
Often one might see an ENFJ leading their players or helpers along, like a merry pied piper, they don’t do it in the whip-cracking detail-oriented manner of the ENTJs, so the people actually like to follow them a lot more than they would an ENTJ, for instance.
Mark Evans is also very good at inspiring confidence among his team which also makes him a good candidate for the ENFJ anime characters list.
Gingka Hagane is an ENFJ anime character on the show Beyblade, which is rather famous for the toys it has promoted and for the competitive spirit of the games they play on the show.
He is the protagonist of the show and handles the number 1 blader in the world, and apart from this advantage, he is also committed to saving his friends as well as the world, if need be, which makes him a strong prospect for an ENFJ.
He is usually calm and collected as well, and has a good, healthy approach to the blading he takes part in.
He faces whatever challenges come before him in an energetic and pumped up manner, which are also traits one might expect to see in an ENFJ.
Yuuki Asuna appears on the show Sword art and she makes a good contender for the ENFJ anime characters list due to her characteristics like helping others, being kind and gentle, and being determined to follow through on what needs to be done no matter the cost, even death.
Asuna is also unable to leave anyone behind or not help someone in need, which is a very ENFJ thing to do, as ENFJs are helpful people, and altruism might even be considered their second nature.
Asuna also tends to take the game very seriously and she is committed to doing her best in all circumstances.
ENFJs are usually people that like to give their all to everything they take on, and Asuna embodies these qualities exceptionally well.
Hashirama Senju is a character on the show Naruto, and he is well known for his boisterous personality and his outgoing tendencies.
ENFJs genuinely like meeting people and helping them and being around them. Hashirama shows these traits often and this makes him a good ENFJ anime character to understand this personality type, especially their behavior with people.
He is an easily excitable man who loves meeting new people, like a true ENFJ and having friendly competitions and doing impulsive things such as gambling.
He is also very headstrong and due to his idealistic and optimistic nature, it often becomes the responsibility of others around him to take care of the realistic aspects.
This stands true for most ENFJs, it is usually those around them that need to take care of the real world things because, in their optimism and hope, they may sometimes forget that they might be living by other ideals.
Tsubasa Ozora is the protagonist of the show Captain Tsubasa, and he may be considered an ENFJ anime character for his traits such as team playing, outgoing nature, and friendliness.
Tsubasa is a classic example of the team-centric nature of ENFJs, as they are more likely to do well in team-based sports and scenarios than they would on their own, as they are deeply invested in being around people.
ENFJs like to be around people due to how people make them feel, and they are genuinely interested in people and helping them.
Tsubasa shows all of these qualities at some point or another and tends to like being around other people, which makes him a pretty strong ENFJ anime character.
Sinbad is a character on the show Magi, and the spinoff of this show, called Adventures of Sinbad.
Sinbad is a very typical protagonist, strong and positive, and who people find it easy to root for due to his friendly and good nature.
He is an ENFJ anime character due to traits like energetic behavior and fun and easy attitude to people. He is able to get along with people very well and often acts very charming around females.
Usually, ENFJs tend to have more serious attitudes in romance but Sinbad only goes so far a to flirt good-naturedly, and not make any promises or break any hearts, so that may well be chalked up to his friendly attitude towards people rather than a casual approach to relationships.
He is also a good leader and gets good results for his people, which also makes him an ENFJ.
In addition, Sinbad can be quite sensitive and emotional as well, which are usually traits seen in ENFJs owing to their Feeling (F) function.
Koko is a character on the show Jormungand, and she is the protagonist of this show.
She tends to show anger or frustration when people around her act in an incompetent way, but for the most part she is cheery and outgoing, getting along with people with ease.
She does, however, tend to be a little enigmatic as well, which is not a typical ENFJ trait, due to their friendly nature they are unlikely to be too mysterious or enigmatic.
She does show ENFJ traits in the way she handles challenges, though, and even smiles in the presence of danger.
Like a true ENFJ anime character, she is able to keep a clear head even when she is faced with problems.
