Hi, I'm an ENFP... what are you?

I know this personality test has been linked to on a few blogs lately, but I felt it was worth sharing here too. SO fascinating! I took the test a couple weeks ago (it only takes a few minutes to answer all the questions!), and I was truly astounded by the results. It pegged me perfectly, and what was even more awesome was the results of Matthew's test. I honestly found myself shaking my head and laughing the entire time I read both his assessment and mine.

I am an ENFP, and he is an INTJ. In other words, we almost couldn't be more different! My favorite part of the ENFP assessment says:

ENFPs have what some call a "silly switch." They can be intellectual, serious, all business for a while, but whenever they get the chance, they flip that switch and become CAPTAIN WILDCHILD, the scourge of the swimming pool, ticklers par excellence. Sometimes they may even appear intoxicated when the "switch" is flipped.

If you only knew how true this is. I literally have a "silly switch" that is involuntarily flipped almost every evening around 9 or 10 o'clock. It drives Matthew insane. It also tends to come into effect around kids or dogs... ha!

So.... what personality type are you?

  1. We took this when I was in my M.Ed in Counseling program, along with other tests, which we scored them. I'm a ENFJ!

  6. I just took the test, how scary accurate is that? I am astonished, it stated my feelings that I am pretty sure I have never said aloud!

  8. Hey you, I use this MBTI test in the course of my work all the time. I often see ENFP's faces fall when they read their personality description....a "silly switch" can be seen as a negative in. The corporate environment but I tell them it stands for Extremely Nice Friendly Person. The world needs more of us....yip I am one too and guess what it's what makes me so BRILLIANT at my job. Organizations only work well when there is a variety of personalities just like relationships. I report into an ISTJ and took awhile for us find a rhythm that works but now we have an awesome understanding of how to work together and respect what each brings to the table. And we make a formidable team. I always say he is the brains and I am the heart.....one can't do without the other!!!! Enjoy being who you are because you are special...silly switch and all!!!!!

  11. So funny, I did this a few weeks ago just for fun one night and it was shockingly accurate. I remember taking this test in college, too, and was surprised by the results. I'm an INFJ which is apparently a very rare combination. No wonder I'm so weird.

    Oh, and I absolutely name inanimate objects all the time (like your bike). I named my car, my cameras, my computer, etc and I totally talk to the them too. Sometimes I give my cameras a pep talk before shooting weddings...

  12. Ohh I loved this test! Have you ever heard of StrengthsFinder? It's similar but I found it more beneficial in a workplace environment. I was lucky enough that my employer paid for us to take it, but you can always buy the book on Amazon and take the test that way :)

  13. I'm an ISFP. Kind of proud of it. ;)

  14. I'm INFP. Pretty much the same as you ... except I scored a little higher on the Introvert end rather than the Extrovert. :)

  15. ENFJ...Sounds about right to me!

    ReplyDelete
  16. INTP like 1 to 3% of women apparently...

  17. Turns out I'm an ENFP, too!! And my "silly switch" is waaaay out of control sometimes, so this describes me to a T :)

  18. Oh I took this in my psych class last semester! I'm an INFJ, which is supposed to be be extremely rare, but two other people in the comments are also INFJ, haha maybe not so rare!

  19. I'm ESFJ... reading what that's all abut right now!

  21. I'm an INFJ -- a very interesting test! I'd say it's pretty dead-on for me. I remember taking something similar in a college psych class -- wonder if my answer has varied from then?

    ReplyDelete
  22. ENFJ! It was dead on to my personality so much that it freaks me out a little bit. Thanks for sharing :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm an ENFP as well! :) And I definitely have that silly switch! :)

  24. Did this at my college career center and it ended up being very helpful/explained a lot! I'm an INTJ too!

  25. I've never heard of this test bfore you posted it, but I took it and I got ISFJ profile.
    I've read what it says, and it seems to fit with how I am at times. Pretty fun test to take. I wonder how an ISFJ and an ENFP would get along?....

  26. I took it twice and I'm a INTJ just like your husband. It kind of helped me understand some of my weaknesses a little better.

    When it said "many INTJs do not readily grasp the social rituals; for instance, they tend to have little patience and less understanding of such things as small talk and flirtation (which most types consider half the fun of a relationship). To complicate matters, INTJs are usually extremely private people, and can often be naturally impassive as well, which makes them easy to misread and misunderstand. Perhaps the most fundamental problem, however, is that INTJs really want people to make sense."

    It really felt true to some of the problems I've had in relationships. At least I know what I need to work on now!

  27. INFJ over here! Heard a lot about it and finally did it myself. INFJ´s can be found amongst artists, writers, people in public service and teachers....... I do work for the city council and I blog and think about going into graphic design - so I guess it´s quite accurate :)

  28. A am an INTJ, just like Jane Austen! Yes!

  29. For the first time I did this test few years ago, I was an INTP (Sherlock Holmes, Einstein), I kept on retaking it occasionally but I've always ended up with the same result. It fits and I was happy to see that my ideal job is a chemist or a photographer considering that I'm finishing MSc in chemistry. :)

  30. This is so interesting! I'm an ISFJ, and my husband is an INFJ. I don't totally agree with some of the things that my profile said, but a lot of it was pretty accurate!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm ENTJ married to an ENFP. So my husband and I are the almost the same as you and your husband. Every single one of my close friends are idealists. They are my favorite type!

    I love the book "Please Understand Me". It goes into each of the different personalities and how they interact with one another. I find it really helpful in my never-ending quest to understand why people behave so differently from me.

  32. What a fun little test! I usually don't take personality tests too seriously(I feel like they are horoscopes...they kind of just "fit" whatever you are looking for) but this one was pretty accurate!

    You make Texas look like so much fun. One of these days I will leave freezing New England and come see all of these cool places!

  33. My Torts professor my first year of law school had us all take this personality test! I am an INFP, which is about the rarest personality for an attorney, ironically, but so me! I remember hearing, though, that your husband's personality type is very common for lawyers. So funny...Im sure your perfectly opposite personalities are just right together!

    ReplyDelete
  34. ENFJ - and out of those I'm extremely E and extremely F... which I love about myself - but doesn't always work in a corporate environment. Relying toomuch on feelings seems to never be a good thing.

    ReplyDelete
  35. From one test I got ESFP, and from this one I got ESFJ... not sure! lol

    ReplyDelete
  36. I just took the test yesterday and I am an ENFP! Sounds about right! I can relate to the "silly switch" as well and I'm sure my husband would just laugh and nod! :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Taking this test right now and begging my husband to take it as soon as he gets home!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm an INFJ. I love personality tests. The assessments are so interesting!
