One thing your employees are not bringing back into the workplace in 2021? The same work attitudes and preferences that they held prior to the pandemic.
Some personality types are known for being extremely polite in every situation while others couldn’t care less what people think of them and their manners. While politeness depends a lot on culture and upbringing, some personality types are definitely more polite than the rest!
Ever wondered which of the 16 personality types are most and least polite? Check out this list and see if you agree with the ranking!
Each of the 16 personality types has extraordinary qualities, strengths, and opportunities for personal growth. Whether you’re an Introvert or an Extravert, a Thinking type or a Feeling type, every combination in the 16-type system has a few traits that aren’t recognized often enough. For example, when I say I’m an INFJ, people are more concerned with my empathetic or enigmatic nature than some of my lesser-known strengths.
The characters in the books we loved as kids have a significant impact in our lives. They find a place in our hearts, shaping how we see the world and often, how we see ourselves. In honor of National Children’s Book Week, we wanted to explore the personality profiles of our favorite children’s book characters -- one for every Myers-Briggs type. Enjoy!
ENFP – the dynamic, enigmatic personality type that keeps the world on its toes while simultaneously tempting it off its axis. The fun loving, open minded, outgoing temperament that engages people with a simple ‘hello’ better than many personality types do after exerting maximum effort. Need a creative solution to a problem you’ve been chewing on for months? Give an ENFP a few minutes of your time and you’ll walk away with several to choose from – and they’ll probably have kept you laughing through the process.
ENFP personalities are known for their spontaneity, uplifting spirit, and out-of-the-box view of the world. INFJs are seen as warm yet reserved, introspective, and idealistic. It might surprise you to discover that these types happen to make ideal friends for the other! Despite their surface differences, there is so much more to this friendship than first meets the eye.
So what exactly makes these two types work so well together? Let’s find out.
Every type has its own set of unique strengths and weaknesses. While we are aware of our individual differences, it’s easy to make assumptions across the board regarding particular groups and how they operate. This becomes too apparent when we look into the types that have an "F" in their four-letter combination. Here, the assumption is that they’re going to be overtly emotional and not as logical. There’s another way to say this, and that’s to assume that people with a strong Feeling preference don't struggle emotionally. Isn’t it strange that we never phrase it this way?
ENFP personality types love a fresh start. They’re excited, enthusiastic, and always looking ahead to see what the future might bring. Whether it’s a brand new year, a new month, or even a new day, they like to follow paths they’ve never taken, engage in creative projects, and say yes to every opportunity that comes their way.
