PERSONALITY TRAITS

Interpersonal Skills

ENFP Personality (“The Campaigner”) – 7% of the population

I pride myself on the ability to come up with original solutions when I have the freedom to be innovative.

Imaginative and open-minded, I tend to see all things as part of a big, mysterious puzzle called life. I would say that there are no irrelevant actions, that every idea is part of something bigger.

Excited about learning new ideas, I can easily read between the lines with curiosity and energy. I see life as a big, complex puzzle where everything is connected is always looking for a deeper meaning.

If I find a cause that sparks my imagination, I will bring the energy necessary to make it come to life, jumping through obstacles and soaking up new information effortlessly.
