12 Shades of ENFP: MBTI & The Zodiac

ENFPs and the Zodiac


Everyone has a zodiac sign and everybody has got a Myers Briggs type. Is there a correlation? Apparently not. Judging from a MBTI + zodiac poll posted by astroligion, the distribution of astrology signs across each MBTI type is fairly even. There is no strong 1 to 1 correlation, but as you might expect, there is an over-representation of introverted Myers Briggs types because well, we all know introverts dominate the internet.

It is worth noting that there is a high prevalence of water signs among the INFJ type. Water signs and INFJs are both emotional so hmmmmmm.

We are all uniquely frosted snowflakes though. Even among the Myers Briggs personalities, there is variation within each type. No two ENFPs are the same. They may share enough cognitive preferences to qualify as ENFP but by how much? Some people are just barely extroverted or just barely more of an intuitive than an sensor. What if maybe your zodiac sign can account for this? Or at least the influence of astrology on your self-image and what you’ve come to believe about yourself? Maybe Aries ENFPs are a slightly different breed than say, Pisces ENFPs.

Stupid idea? Maybe, but indulge me if you will and just roll with it. Here is an interpretation of how the ENFP personality might be expressed through each zodiac sign.
