What is Personality?

The word personality is rooted in a Latin word ‘persona.’ The word persona refers to a theatrical mask work by performers in order to either look a definite way or disguise their characters. Carl Jung highlights the idea of “collective unconscious.”

This notion refers to the innate psychological dispositions of all human beings.  According to the American Psychological Association, “Personality refers to individual differences in characteristic patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving.

The study of personality focuses on two broad areas:

  • One understanding is the individual differences in particular personality characteristics, such as sociability or irritability.
  • The other understanding is how the various parts of a person come together as a whole.”

Four Key Dichotomies

The 8 styles are Extraversion (E), Introversion (I), Sensing (S), iNtuition (N), Judging (J), Perceiving (P), Thinking (T) and Feeling (F). Once it is determined what an individual style for the four dichotomies is, a four letter code is obtained. These four letters are the initials of each of the preferred styles.

What are ENFJ females like? (In detail)

Given below are the details of some of the attributes of ENFJ female:

Motherly in nature

ENFJ women are caring and are often referred to as the mother of their social circle. They have a natural ability to support others from a young age. ENFJs are sensitive to the feelings of those around them and are unable to ignore them. When anyone they care for is upset, they will go to great lengths to make them feel better.

ENFJs are not only excellent at providing warmth, but they are also adept at solving problems. They can do whatever they can to improve things if there is something they can do.

ENFJ women are fortunate in that most people regard their maternal nature as a positive trait. They are often portrayed as generous and caring individuals, which is exactly who they are at heart.

Leadership

ENFJ women are warm and caring, but they are also strong leaders. They excel at taking command of a situation and determining the best course of action. They also take on multiple tasks and juggle multiple priorities.

This makes them excellent entrepreneurs because they can always predict future outcomes. This aids the ENFJ in navigating ways to avoid problems in the future, since they can always see solutions to problems.

Because of their upbeat attitudes, ENFJs make great managers. They have the opportunity to have the appropriate amount of discipline while still providing constructive feedback. They make their employees feel appreciated, motivating them to work even harder.

They know how to be tough when necessary and will be able to motivate those around them to do better. Women in the ENFJ personality type don’t want to give up and will work as hard as they can to achieve their goals.

Giving but in limits

ENFJ women are incredibly generous and would go to great lengths for those they care for. Their main goal is to make people happy, but they have limitations. If ENFJs believe that those closest to them are not appreciating their efforts, they may become extremely irritated. If the ENFJ is not given anything in exchange for a long time, they will finally snap.

Emotional burnout takes a long time to develop, but it is a very real possibility. The ENFJ can overexert themselves and become emotionally drained if they are not properly cared for. It is important for those who are close to the ENFJ to offer as much as they can.

They may not be able to do as much as the ENFJ, but they have a tendency to go above and beyond. For the ENFJ, simply putting in some effort to prove that you care is enough to make them feel loved and valued. They just want assurance that their efforts will not be wasted on someone who is uninterested.

They want to make sure they’re putting their resources into the right people—people who really understand what they’re going through. ENFJs are caring people, but they aren’t fond of being used.

Strongly charismatic

ENFJ women have a magnetic personality that is both enthusiastic and affectionate. People are attracted to their goodness and natural ability to communicate. They know how to make people happy and can sometimes raise the energy level in a room.

ENFJs are also aware of the appropriate things to use to comfort someone who is sad or to reassure someone who is upset. They have a strong grasp on emotions, especially those of others.

They have an innate ability to sense how others are feeling, which makes them extremely likeable. They have an intense charisma that can be a little surprising to certain people, and they know how to cater to just about everyone.

Zealous

ENFJ women are committed people who will stand up for what they believe in. This can be confusing for people, particularly because they are usually very agreeable. The ENFJ can be boisterous and passionate when it comes to the things that really matter to them. They will express their feelings loudly and clearly, ensuring that everyone is aware of their feelings.

They don’t want to offend people, so they’ll try to show themselves in a way that doesn’t. ENFJs, on the other hand, realize what they believe in and refuse to conceal their convictions. They value integrity and don’t want to be seen as someone who isn’t truthful about what they want or believe is right.

They work tirelessly to assist others and will advocate for a cause they believe in. Women who are ENFJ can be intense and enthusiastic, but they are also kind and wet. They devote the majority of their energies to caring for others and are only content when they are able to make others happy.

ENFJ women can go to great lengths for those they care for, but they can be ruthless rivals to those who wrong them. It takes a lot for an ENFJ female to become genuinely enraged with someone; this typically occurs when they hurt someone the ENFJ loves. They are determined and strong-willed, making them fantastic friends and lovers.
