ENFJ

Curious Tuesday 009

I am answering these questions as part of Gala Darling’s Curious Tuesday project.

Curious Tuesday 009

Love 'n Happiness.

The Little Store, in Provincetown, MA.

1. What was your first kiss experience?

I don’t remember if it was my actual first kiss, but there was a certain experience during high school when I went to kiss someone on the cheek and he did the head turn so it was a real kiss. I had fluttery stomach for days afterward.

2. If you could work for — & learn from — anyone, who would it be & why?

I’m going to say Lady Gaga. Besides the fact that I think she’s a pop genius, she’s also a marketing genius, which is right up my career alley. I feel like working with her would be very open, where ideas get shared and things are never seen as too crazy and that would be fun and amazing.

3. Have you ever taken a Myers-Briggs test? (If not, do it here, it’s quick & easy!) What was your result? Do you think it was accurate? (Also, TypeLogic is a great resource for finding out more information about your type.)

I am apparently an ENFJ. I took a different test than the one Gala linked to but I think the questions on these tests are mostly the same.

Wikipedia:

  • E – Extraversion preferred to introversion: ENFJs often feel motivated by their interaction with people. They tend to enjoy a wide circle of acquaintances, and they gain energy in social situations (whereas introverts expend energy)
  • N – Intuition preferred to sensing: ENFJs tend to be more abstract than concrete. They focus their attention on the big picture rather than the details, and on future possibilities rather than immediate realities
  • F – Feeling preferred to thinking: ENFJs tend to value personal considerations above objective criteria. When making decisions, they often give more weight to social implications than to logic
  • J – Judgment preferred to perception: ENFJs tend to plan their activities and make decisions early. They derive a sense of control through predictability

It seems pretty accurate in general, although reading the more lengthy description has me disagreeing with some of the finer points.

4. What is your favourite thing about your best friend?

Shared humor, laughing with someone at the same thing, especially when that thing isn’t particularly funny to someone else? I love that feeling.

5. What makes you happiest?

I have the best times when traveling. I love going to different places. I especially love is that the traveling that we’ve done in the past 2 years has all been within the US.  We go on seemingly random trips, but I just feel blessed to be somewhere new and beautiful with my favorite person. I know it’s sappy but it’s so true.  Those are the happiest times.
