Welcome to CS Joseph response. I’m your host chase here to answer your questions on any topic union analytical psychology or the four sides of the mind also known as for size dynamics. Today’s question is, what is the thing ENFPs do better than other or any other personality type? And the source of today’s question is Cora. And why not I may as well just, you know, film this at midnight because I actually forgot to do that.
So, hashtag responsible because it’s everyday bro and we have to make sure that we are posting every day on this channel. So, here we go. Maria Henneberry, independent media producer, university adjunct, replied Angela she says rally we rally when facing tough stuff. And when and then we’re off on a new adventure.
What are key ingredients in that skillful ability to rally humor resilience and joy? Sure, when he timeouts to lick our wounds occasionally all the time. But we also have the benefit of humor and humor is healing yeah very true. In FPS are amusing people are often amusing people yes they are because you know the definition of amusing is without thought and definitely ENFPs are definitely without thought. Let’s be honest.
It comes from TI trickster ti trickster when it in terms of ENFPs is that ti trickster they actually walk around thinking that there’s no such thing as true or false. They actually believe that truth is entirely subjective. Anything can be true, anything can be false. There’s no such thing as absolute truth to an ENFP.
They’re always the people making the argument. Well, that’s your truth. And this is my truth. Because to an ENFP doesn’t matter what’s true or false.
All it matters is what you believe it’s all about belief, they they only care about belief. They don’t care about what’s true or false. As long as they can make somebody believe something, they can walk away looking good while being not actually good, because looking good, instead of actually being good is more important to the typical ENFP. So she says, some of the funniest people, I have laughed so hard with my ENFP and NTP friends over the years ENFPs have an impressive resilience.
This is actually true ENFPs have a tendency of outlasting a lot of people as because their Introverted Sensing Inferior function causes them to potentially Outlast anyone, especially when it goes into aspirational mode. They’re no longer you know, afraid of the unknown, willing to take on any new thing. And then as a result of that, it develops a high level of strength and resilience, perseverance and endurance. It’s, it’s unbelievable, and quite awesome.
To be fair, NTPs do the same thing, just like ENFPs do. But ENFPs have the ability to suffer a lot of social damage, and even potentially hits to the reputation although they’re extremely sensitive about their reputation and status. The thing is, though, is that they’re not easily guilted and not easily guilted by other people because expert feeling critic, so and that’s one of the reasons why. The main ingredient of resilience According to Maria, here is creativity a cornerstone of innovation and reinvention.
You know, I don’t like her word choice in terms of creativity, but I see where she’s coming from talking about cornerstone of innovation and reinvention. That’s absolutely right. ENFPs, the expert intuition you’re constantly reinventing. So you know, this answer is actually really impressive.
She actually knows what she’s talking about. So that’s, that’s pretty awesome. But there’s actually more here. She says, What does it all land on? In the end joy, if we have to choose between two things, one of them is our joy, there’s a decent chance we’ll check whatever the other thing was, and choose joy.
Not necessarily always true. I actually think ENFPs would choose status over joy at any, you know, quite frankly, status or their money, or what other people think of them quite frankly, or their reputation, etc. And then she’s like ENFPs are able to stay in touch with joy better than so many people because we require it for how we define meaning in life. Okay, I’ll let you have that but that’s really subjective and very flighty and very belief V button, probably it’s truthy.
But that’s because it’s truthy doesn’t mean it’s actually true. So let’s, let’s look at what else people have said here. Crystal Look, when you ask all friends of an ENFP to go to a party, you will meet different types of people with different personalities. ENFPs have an ability to bring people together.
Absolutely. That’s true. ENFPs have like the greatest Rolodex and they have more connections with anyone and it’s because they draw their self worth by how many people they actually know, is safer. 20 Robbins, he’s an ENFP probably the most successful ENFP in history.
And it’s all about how many people is all about connecting people because connections have value and connections, increase your status. And if you have the right kind of connections, you have the right kind of status. It’s just kind of like what my INFJ father taught me when I was young jays, it doesn’t matter who you are, what you can do, you just have to know the right people. And this because my daughter my dad wishes I was an ENFP he constantly wishes that, but I’m not so I’m because I’m pragmatic and ENFPs are super affiliative crystal that goes on NF peas are generally interested in your life because their natural ability is to connect with people.
Okay? Yeah, true to their curiosity about the world, they are truly fascinated by what you have been through. No, that’s not true at all. ENFPs don’t give a damn about your experience. And crystalbrook does not know what they’re talking about on this thing because they don’t care about your experience.
They care about their experience. They care about their comfort. They care about what what they’re tasting what they’re experiencing. They care about their stories, not about your stories, they don’t care.
They can be friends with the cool kids jocks Gough’s nerds at the same time, they’re also friends, the underdogs do their high level of empathy. FYI, empathy is not FYI, I’m sorry. crystalbrook. It actually is sympathy.
Sympathy is when you have feelings yourself as a result of seeing somebody else in pain, but actually feeling somebody else’s feelings with someone else’s being and feeling the exact feelings that they’re feeling that is empathy. And that’s actually extroverted feeling. That is not because it’s feeling as expert is not internal feeling internal feeling is sympathy. You know, it’s a sim path, it’s not an empath, and I’m so tired of everybody getting those backwards, like seriously, pull open a dictionary, and actually read it for once, instead of continuing to use this improper colloquial language that’s just leading to the collective confusion of human beings as we know it, and therefore increasing the risk of cultural ignorance.
By and large, please stop doing this, please use a dictionary. So let’s continue on hear someone saying, I don’t know, I’m not going to bother reading those questions like there’s no point. So anyway, what do you what is the thing ENFPs do better than any other personality type? Let’s get the CSJ of version of the answer this question. So they are the best at sales, they are absolutely amazing at sales and sales is literally everything to them.
I think a lot of people don’t understand how powerful an ENFP salesman is, because it’s an ENFP salesman, that goes out of its way to make sure that, you know, like, like, they, they could sell the gum off of their shoe like seriously, an ENFP, which doesn’t really care about anything, you know, other than potentially making money, they will take you for a ride, they can take you for a ride, I actually watched my ENFP mentor, sell a guy on some extremely low quality vinyl at one point in time. And, and the guy bought it. And you know, my mentor is just like, hey, you know, he didn’t know it was terrible. And I got a really good, I got a lot of money as if I was telling him that, you know, the real higher quality stuff, and I just talked it up, and he just went for it, you know? And it’s like, wow, do How can you really go for it? And from his point of view, it’s like, Hey, as long as I get mine, it’s okay, man.
Because this is just how the Doggy Dog world of business is. You really have to go out of your way to make sure you have your bases covered and like okay, sure, fair enough. But it’s still it’s still, you know, in my mind is very unethical. It’s not justified from his point of view, it’s a very moral thing to do, but it’s really not, you know, and oftentimes ENFPs just don’t know how selfish they come off to other people.
They’re just unaware of that. They’re unaware of how selfish they come off. And then they end up taking advantage of other people because an ENFP I’m real, truly morally ENFP is ENFP, who goes out of their way to make sure that they are creating a win win situation where everyone mutually benefit, but the thing is, is like they’re aware of what other people are thinking. So what they do is they spin a web sometimes to make people think that they are getting a win win.
The reality of the situation is is that that person is not getting when they’re actually getting a lose. And the ENFP is like Hey, as long as I get mine it’s all good. You know, that person doesn’t know he got screwed. He’s blissfully unaware and ignorance is bliss.
Right? So hey, what do you don’t know don’t hurt him. Right? That’s that’s the ENFP way. Well, you don’t know don’t hurt him. So that’s the thing.
Sales is the absolute number one thing that ENFPs do then do best and other people. And in terms of what Maria said in terms of rallying Yeah, rallying is definitely think getting the word out. Creating exposure. Public relations is something also ENFPs are amazing.
It’s all about spinning a web. It’s all about creating a narrative, right? It’s all about making something look good whether or not it’s actually good or not. It’s the it says it says it’s the the full surface shallow of love as sales Enos and salesmanship is everything that an ENFP actually is. Some examples of that, like, you’re gonna watch avatar Legend of Korra of Varrick.
He’s an ENFP. Although Prince Woo, he’s actually an ESTP, which is kind of weird. Although, interestingly enough, they kind of the writers switch their roles a little bit. And then Varrick became the ESTP.
And then prince who became the ENFP, towards the end of the book for which is season four of Legend of Korra. So it’s kind of interesting how that works. There’s plenty of other examples in popular culture of, of ENFPs out there, you know, but like, hey, or Mass Effect, you know, that guy that you have to follow in the Citadel is he’s shaking down all the shop owners in Mass Effect two, and you’re on top of like, the, you know, the barriers and the rungs trying to keep an eye on the guy, the guy doing that Shakedown is that thing, because hey, man, you got my money, you know, you better give me my money, you know. And that’s kind of where we’re ENFPs come from, although one of my favorite ENFPs out there is Nick Shabazz.
He actually has his channel about knives and whatnot. Knives, Nixa Boss, he’s an ENFP and he’s a fantastic ENFP tell him talk about oh, look at this knife. It’s, it’s such a it’s such a beautiful thing. It’s it’s a beautiful thing.
He’s always saying, I bet I want to have a beautiful thing is he’s, he’s explaining what his experience is, and whatnot. And he’s basically selling knives. And he just naturally doing you know, he’s not actually selling those particular knives he’s talking about, but there are views he provides for these knives actually leads to direct sales of knives and various cutlery, for example, because they just naturally know how to sell. They know what people want.
They know what they value, because they value they wisely are aware of what other people may value. And all they have to do is get people to think that something is value. So they know people open up their wallets for it. It’s all about sales.
ENFPs do the best at sales. So if you want a great salesman on your team, go for the NFP. Just be careful because sometimes as ENFPs get ideas, and then they actually try to take your they can actually try to take your, your IP or your company out from under you when you least expect it because they become entitled to it because they’re like, Well, I put in all this work. So these are my customers that I created for you.
So I’m gonna if I leave, I’m gonna take my customers with me, they think they own their customers, they don’t actually realize that legally speaking is the company that owns that, but it’s like, hey, you know, he doesn’t know that the boss and he doesn’t know that sign. I’m just gonna take my customers with me. And so it’s all good. It’s all my customers.
It’s just my customers. It’s not his, you know, he don’t know that way and don’t know, don’t hurt them. Right? I mean, that’s that’s the ENFP way because folks, the truth is ENFPs live their life by a code and I quote, and as quoted to me by an ENFP. In the absence of communication or explanation, perceptions become reality.
