What is your Myers-Briggs Type?
ENFP – Extraverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Prospecting. According to 16Personalities.com, “Campaigners (ENFPs) are true free spirits – outgoing, openhearted, and open-minded. With their lively, upbeat approach to life, they stand out in any crowd. But even though they can be the life of the party, Campaigners don’t just care about having a good time. These personality types run deep – as does their longing for meaningful, emotional connections with other people.”
