Warm, excitable and full of potential, ENFP people see the world as a place filled with possibilities. They tend to inspire and motivate others, tending to have a variety of skills and talents to their name.
Their primary instincts allow them to take in different scenarios by using their intuition, responding accordingly to that ‘gut feeling.’ Their secondary external instincts make them prone to using feelings to interpret the things around them, whether making decisions or fitting such things into their morality system.
The Inspiration or ENFP individual, although directionless to others, accomplishes things in line with their moral values—otherwise their sense of self. However, these traits may manifest differently within women and men. Let’s take a look at how ENFP traits manifest in both women and men in this article.
ENFP As A Woman
The ENFP woman tends to be a free spirit, limited only by what she feels are her personal limits. They have the innate desire to inspire and motivate others, tending to put a large focus on interpersonal relationships.
ENFP women may go through several careers in their lifetime. Their open-minded approach to life tends to make them drift between interests, which may make them appear directionless to observers. But when focused on something that truly inspires them, ENFP women see their projects to the end.
Women who are classified as ENFP individuals need emotional fulfillment that aligns with their sense of self. They often need to feel as if they’re living their life in tune with what they interpret as their inner Self and will do whatever it takes to achieve that particular level of comfort.
ENFP women do tend to have great people skills and are highly personable, but do tend to want to win affection from others, particularly when younger. As a parent, they put a lot of focus on making their kin happy but may find difficulty with kin who may have strong Judging or Sensing traits.
ENFP As A Man
The ENFP man is free spirited and talented, always open to possibilities that may be present before them.
Men classified as ENFP individuals tend to be more attuned with their emotions, being highly influenced by their intuition and feelings. Many drift through life completing tasks in accordance with their personal values, especially if it presents emotional fulfillment to their sense of Self. Like their counterparts, they can be rather emotionally intense and constantly do what it takes to stay attuned with their Self, sometimes to the detriment of everything else.
An emotionally motivated ENFP man achieves what he wants. As long as they stay focused on their project or task, they are able to complete whatever they wish to complete.
They also tend to have great people skills and are able to remarkably upkeep their interpersonal relationships. Especially when younger, they may place a lot of importance on being accepted by others. As parents, the ENFP father does what it takes to make their kin happy and may be attuned to their kin’s needs due to their emotional and intuitive nature.
