ENFP personalities are great when it comes to pushing buttons. But when it comes to keeping them engaged in careers, or getting them to settle, it can be pretty difficult. Luckily, ENFP’s are pretty talented at most anything they try. Here, we will look at just a few career options for these talented explorers. While we encourage readers to take this advice with a grain of salt, all of the careers we discuss, below, would be a great starting-out place for ENFP personalities.
Opportunities in the Sciences
There are many reasons why ENFP personalities do particularly well in the sciences. Firstly, they can easily understand concepts and theories that might not come readily to others. They are also very good at leader others, although they do not like it (great for teamwork). When it comes to thinking in a logical and rational way, they are also very gifted. Their talent with communication skills means that presenting research, writing up procedures or articles will be a cinch. Since they love to question authority and push the envelope, all while thinking about the future, science is a great fit.
Questioning Authority and the Status Quo
We mentioned above that ENFP personalities really love to question authority. ENFP personalities have such a drive that careers that regularly allow them to do just that, be creative, and try new things are often a great fit. Journalists, reporters, and consultants are all able (and even encouraged) to question how things have always been. For this reason, ENFP personalities may fit in very well in these fields. Again, their great communication skills will also lend themselves to these careers. When thee careers are used to better the situations of others, the need to help can be fed for ENFP personalities.
Trying the Arts
With creative and energetic minds, as well as great communication skills, need to try new things regularly, and the knack for pushing back against the status quo, ENFP personalities can also find a great home in the arts. They may want to try something that allows them to start and follow-through with projects, like an actual artist. Or they may be driven to use their communication skills for good by becoming a writer. Being an actor may also be another option for these personality types. Acting would also allow these people to work with teams, which they are naturally talented with.
