ENFP stands for Extroverted, intuition, feeling, and perceiving, and this personality type is also known as a Campaigner.

The ENFP can also get out of their comfort zone very easily, and they find it easy to adapt to new circumstances, which makes them fairly easy to be around as well.
The ENFP personality type is also very imaginative and open-minded and this usually shows in the way they approach challenges in their life
ENFPs can be very observant and they can find meaning even in the mundane things, which may also make them very funny and witty, as they can relate different things to each other.
ENFP is also very extroverted and they have no difficulty in forming new connections with the people and the external environment they live in, and they may be described as bustling with energy as they go to work on all the amazing ideas they have on a regular basis.
ENFPs are also very engrossed in the idea of telling their friends everything they come up with and they are usually innovative and easily excitable.
ENFPs are also good communicators and they find it very easy to articulate things with amazing grace and poise, and therefore they are able to express the brilliant ideas they have very well.
ENFPs are also very well versed with the idea of how to have fun and experience life’s joys, and their extroverted Intuitive function in the ENFP lets them know that it’s time to change things up, and take a break from things, or if they get too stressed that they may want to do something about it.
