My personality type[edit]

A chart with descriptions of each Myers–Briggs personality type and the four dichotomies central to the theory

(“THE PROTAGONIST”), ENFJ after I took the 16 personalities test.

ENFJs are natural-born leaders, full of passion and charisma. Forming around two percent of the population, they are oftentimes our politicians, our coaches and our teachers, reaching out and inspiring others to achieve and to do good in the world. With a natural confidence that begets influence, ENFJs take a great deal of pride and joy in guiding others to work together to improve themselves and their community.
General characteristics are caring, diplomatic, enthusiastic, organized, responsible, skilled communicators, value connection with people.
