Clinically Reviewed by Steven Melendy, PsyD. on September 09, 2022

For Extraverts, alone time can be a scary prospect.

While most people are comfortable spending short periods of time alone, it can be hard to get used to being alone if you’ve always surrounded yourself with people. Whether it’s friends, family or city crowds, the contrast is still the same. When you’re on your own, you can feel very alone.

If you’re working on spending more time alone and getting comfortable with alone time, these 10 tips and ideas are for you.

How to Find a Satisfying Career as an ENFP Personality Type

Your unique personality type is suited to particular kinds of roles in the workplace. ENFPs – people with preferences for Extraversion, Intuition, Feeling and Perceiving – seek work that uses their creativity to express themselves while benefiting others. 

As it’s so easy to fall in love with the idea of many careers, ENFP’s can need a little help to narrow down the options as to which careers or jobs to try. Knowing what an ENFP needs in a job and which careers meet those requirements can really help!

Wait. What? Isn’t this backwards? If you did a double-take when you read this headline, you’re probably not alone. Most of us are used to hearing that Introverts need to be more extraverted to have the advantage at work. But, could the opposite sometimes be true?

Clinically Reviewed by Steven Melendy, PsyD. on July 13, 2022

Within the Myers and Briggs personality system, it’s easy to assume the ENFP and ENFJ are inseparable siblings. They make a great team, but more because of their marked differences than their similarities. 

While surprising to some, both types would agree that they are not personality twinners. 

So… how do you tell them apart?

When my sister first told me that she had also tested as an ENFP, my immediate thought was that she was dead wrong. 

Clearly, I am the one and only true ENFP! (Sounds just like an ENFP thing to say, yeah?) 

I went through all of the deep ENFP knowledge I’ve learned in my years studying personality theory. I took each letter one by one, dug into the cognitive functions, and even compared both of us against characters of the TV show Friends to make my case.

As an ENFP personality, I have questioned whether or not I’m actually an Extravert multiple times.

It is no secret: we are wired for stories. Fiction allows us to stress-test and learn vicariously through relatable characters and fascinating worlds. 

If you’re an ENFP personality, chances are you’ve been disappointed by other articles that point to Michael Scott or Ron Weasley as your fictional personality counterparts.

Intuitive-feelers personality types — those with NF as their middle letters on the Myers and Briggs 16 type test — share many defining characteristics. But divergent life experiences create plenty of variety within the type.

The differences may be observed at the individual level. But they may also be seen through the lens of gender. Intuitive-Feeling men may think, act, and react differently than Intuitive-Feeling women. Not in every instance, but at least in some.
