“The first half of life is devoted to forming a healthy ego, the second half is going inward and letting go of it.”
- Carl Jung

You have only one life to live and what you get out of it largely depends on your ability to grow and develop as a person. Each of us has a unique story and life path to follow and along the way will come challenges that reveal our strengths and expose our weaknesses. Using the MBTI, we can learn to recognize aspects of our personality that are underdeveloped and then work to improve them. Recognizing your cognitive weak points is the first step in fortifying them but you can also take some solace knowing that other people with your MBTI type share your struggle. Here is a look at some of the areas in which each MBTI personality type can focus on improving to be the best they can be.

ENFP Personal Growth

Many ENFPs can get themselves into dangerous situations because they are too eager to push the envelope of their understanding, and not willing to apply judgment to anything. They have difficulty with managing details carefully or learning methodically and sometimes make faulty inferences or pursue unrealistic ideas. ENFPs can have tunnel vision when they are taken by an idea/possibility and tend to overlook personal needs or priorities because of excessive attention paid to external events and

Some ENFPs may get involved with drugs,

alcohol, or promiscuity, and generally seek mindless experiences and sensations. They often do not invest enough in material stability or security may have difficulty keeping a job for any length of time. They are often susceptible to manipulation by schemers and con artists.

ENFPs may often start projects but are unable to finish them.

They are more interested in exploring potential than realizing potential and can get too easily bored, often abandoning plans midstream. They can be impulsive, impatient, and scattered and should try to find completion before moving on to a new idea. They ought to spend more time developing the details of their inner vision and understand that, rather than slowing you down, taking time to focus, think, and plan more carefully actually increases their chance of success or achievement.

ENFPs May skip from relationship to relationship

without the ability to commit. They may blame their problems on other people and feel intense anger towards people who criticize them or try to control them. Left unexpressed, the anger may fester, simmer, and become destructive and they may develop strong negative judgments that are difficult to unseat against people who they perceive have been oppressive to them.

Tips for ENFP Growth

  1. When you feel angry or resistant toward someone who you feel is criticizing you, take this as a cue that you are not judging effectively. When that happens, take a step back from your anger and try to really hear what the person is saying objectively. Rather than expending mental energy in defining how the other person is wrong, try to judge what the person is actually saying, without respect to yourself.

  2. Periodically make lists of goals and accomplishments. Revisit your goals and accomplishments often to maintain a sense of direction.

  3. Spend time alone regularly for the purpose of thinking through issues in your life.
