the great enfp's:

i was spending some time looking over the blogs of friends - when i came upon my friend david hopkins blog - and out from the past i was smacked in the ficae with a haunting past of the myers-briggs test. i, like david, an an enfp

here's a little quote from the page:
General: ENFPs are both "idea"-people and "people"-people, who see everyone and everything as part of an often bizarre cosmic whole. They want to both help (at least, their own definition of "help") and be liked and admired by other people, on bo th an individual and a humanitarian level. They are interested in new ideas on principle, but ultimately discard most of them for one reason or another....

Friends are what life is about to ENFPs
ENFPs are global learners
ENFPs sometimes can be blindsided by their secondary Feeling function
ENFPs have what some call a "silly switch."
ENFPs are friendly folks

here are some examples of enfp's:
Dom Delouise, actor
Dave Thomas, owner of Wendy's hamburger chain
Lewis Grizzard, newspaper columnist
I. King Jordan, president of Gallaudet University
Martin Short, actor-comedian
Meg Ryan, actress (When Harry Met Sally)
Robin Williams, actor, comedian (Dead Poet's Society, Mrs. Doubtfire)
Sandra Bullock, actress (Speed, While You Were Sleeping)
Robert Downey (Heart and Souls)
Alicia Silverstone (Clueless)
Andy Kaufman

and there is so much more - i remember when i took the test, my wife and i did it together and we are both enfp's, i was told by the person who gave me the test that enfp's make rotten pastors and even worse church planters - well, in a modern world maybe so - but in a postmodern reality i think enfp's make the best pastors ever - thanks david, for the flash back and the info - you rule.
