Free 16 Personality Type Test - Find Your Type

Not sure what Myers Briggs type you are? Take a free Jungian Type (16 types) test to find out what your type is.

16 Types

ENFP Subtypes

Each ENFP result has subtle differences, which can be captured through subtypes.

Page contents:


Knowing you are an ENFP helps you understand how to interact with the world around you. But there will be extra detail hidden within each of the four letters. We dive deeper into each letter and introduce the concept of 'subtypes' and how they can further explain your unique personality.


An ENFP knows they are extraverted. But what type of extravert are they? Subtypes help to define the differences.

ENFP Subtypes

What variations exist within type ENFP?

The MBTI result of ENFP can be broken down further to reveal a more nuanced personality profile. Have you had a Myers Briggs result ENFP and thought "that's kind of me"? That could be because each of the four letters has two variants, or 'subtypes'. Let's take a deeper look at the subtypes contained within type ENFP.

face reading open book

The four letters of the 16 types model (for example Myers Briggs®) are a useful shorthand to describe personality types. If you want a little more detail it's possible to look at subtypes.

An ENFP knows they are (E)xtraverted, i(N)tuitive, (F)eeling, and (P)erceiving. But what type of extravert are they? And what form does their intuition take? Subtypes are a way of answering those questions.


Extraverted: the Subtypes

Two variants of extroversion: gregarious and assertive.

Extraverts broadly display one of two interpersonal styles, gregarious or assertive. Gregarious extraverts are highly social and warm, thriving on positive interpersonal communication. Assertive extraverts are dominant and direct, welcoming interpersonal conflict and making their will know to those around them.

  • Ea: Extraverted-Assertive
  • Eg: Extraverted-Gregarious

Ea and Eg: What's The Difference?

Extraverted types can take the form of two variants: Ea and Eg

Extraverts can lean towards being either extraverted-assertive or extraverted-gregarious. There are subtle differences, which are listed here.

Extended subtype:

Ea
Primary type:
Extraverted (E)
Subtype:
Assertive (a)
What this means:
Assertive extraverts aim to be dominant and thrive on conflict, gaining and developing most from locking horns with others.

Extended subtype:

Eg
Primary type:
Extraverted (E)
Subtype:
Gregarious (g)
What this means:
Gregarious extraverts are warm, social and are always seeking to establish an interpersonal connection with people whenever they can.

Intuition: the subtypes

Two variants of intuition: creative and unorthodox.

Intuitives can be broadly defined as being either creative, or unorthodox. Creative Intuitives focus on new ideas or innovations, focusing on improvement in the conventional sense. Unorthodox Intuitives, however, take a more abstract and unconventional approach to problem-solving, identifying unusual solutions.

  • Nc: Intuitive-Creative
  • Nu: Intuitive-Unorthodox

Nc and Nu: What's The Difference?

Intuitive types can take the form of two variants

Intuitive types can lean towards being either intuitive-creative or intuitive-unorthodox. There are subtle differences, which are listed here.

Extended subtype:

Nu
Primary type:
Intuitive (N)
Subtype:

Feeling: the subtypes

Two variants of feeling: Fair and Warm.

Feeling types tend to display one of two behavioral styles and can be described as either fair or warm. Fair feeling types are driven by their intrinsic moral principles, acting in strict accordance with their personal values. Warm feeling types are compassionate, empathetic, are emotionally driven when making decisions.

  • Ff: Feeling-Fair
  • Fw: Feeling-Warm

Ff and Fw: What's The Difference?

Feeling types can take the form of two variants: Ff and Fw

Feeling types can lean towards being either feeling-fair or feeling-warm. There are subtle differences, which are listed here.

Extended subtype:

Ff
Primary type:
Feeling (F)
Subtype:
Fair (f)
What this means:
Fair Feeling subtypes are guided by their principles, which are determined by the values they hold dear.

Extended subtype:

Fw
Primary type:
Feeling (F)
Subtype:
Warm (w)
What this means:
Warm Feeling subtypes seek to soothe their friends and family from hurt and this compassion is in charge of the decisions they make.

Perceiving: the subtypes

Two variants of perceiving: spontaneous and versatile.

Perceiving types are likely to fall under one of two categories, versatile or spontaneous. Spontaneous perceiving types are happy-go-lucky, making decisions on a whim and are all for living for the moment. Versatile perceiving types tend to be cognitively flexible, readily adapting to new information and thriving on variety.

  • Ps: Perceiving-Spontaneous
  • Pv: Perceiving-Versatile

Ps and Pv: What's The Difference?

Perceiving types can take the form of two variants: Ps and Pv

Perceiving types can lean towards being either perceiving-Spontaneous or perceiving-Versatile. There are subtle differences, which are listed here.

Extended subtype:

Ps
Primary type:
Perceiving (P)
Subtype:
Spontaneous (s)

Summary: ENFP Subtypes

Subtypes: Dichotomies within dichotomies

Research shows that the traditional four dichotomies are in fact multidimensional and nuanced, displaying at least two distinct variants which we call subtypes. The addition of subtypes provides a richer and more accurate picture of an individual's personality, while retaining the many advantages of the simple 16 type model as used in the MBTI Test. By understanding your subtype, you learn about the behavioral styles which separate you from others who share your overall type.
