ENFP Vs ENFJ Explained With Examples

In this video, I delve into the similarities and differences between ENFJs and ENFPs, highlighting how these personality types operate in various dimensions of life. As an ENFJ, I explain that we tend to exist more within a professional dimension, valuing structure, control, and a focused approach towards achieving our goals. We can handle stress well by setting and pursuing goals with discipline over extended periods. The need for structure, order, and control is paramount for us to avoid stress, and lacking professional pursuits can be challenging.

On the other hand, as an ENFP, I describe a stronger inclination towards the recreational dimension, prioritizing fun, creativity, and spontaneous activities that lack rigid rules and structures. ENFPs value expression, modesty, and prefer collaboration, often seeking the most efficient or accurate ways to accomplish tasks. However, organizing life and activities and following a structured plan can be a struggle for ENFPs.

I also touch on the cognitive functions and archetypes unique to each type. ENFJs are more aligned with the roles of mediators, communicators, and diplomats, often adhering to an ethical or moral code, whereas ENFPs embody the rebel archetype, questioning traditional norms and preferring to march to the beat of their own drum.

Visionary ENFJs have a strategic approach, focusing on long-term goals and predictions, and are adept at narrowing down options to decide on the most probable course of action. In contrast, ENFPs entertain multiple possibilities and paths, finding it challenging to commit to a single course, often due to their heightened activity in the right prefrontal cortex, which is associated with open-ended thinking and exploration of options.
