The Introvert ENFJ
Gallery Of The Introvert ENFJ
While sometimes describing someone’s personality type can pigeonhole them and fit them into a tiny box- that really isn’t the best way to understand them. It is important to analyze each personality type, and each individual person on a much deeper level. In order to truly understand someone, we need to accept that there are different versions and layers to each personality type. While most ENFJs are outgoing people who absolutely love socializing, there is a version of the ENFJ which can lean more towards their introverted qualities. The introvert ENFJ tends to find themselves feeling much more ambiverted, and so they don’t always fit into the general idea of what an ENFJ should be. This can cause them to become mistyped sometimes and even viewed as introverts to some.
The fact is ENFJs dominant function is what makes them an ENFJ, and that is their focus on the emotions of others. There are many layers underneath this, which can cause them to display some more introverted qualities. While their main focus is taking care of others, there is much more to them than just that. ENFJs also focus strongly on their introverted intuition, which can leave them feeling more caught up in their own rich inner worlds.
They Become Drained By Certain Interaction
ENFJs might be outgoing and extroverted people, but sometimes they can become drained by people. The fact that they are so in touch with the emotions of others, can be challenging sometimes. While they care about those around them, constantly feeling their emotions in an empathetic manner can actually be overwhelming. It can cause the ENFJ to be drained after a while, especially when they are spending time with people who are emotionally needy. While they want to be supportive, focusing so much on others can definitely leave them feeling drained. The Fe burnout is a very real thing for ENFJs, and so they can become drained by interaction. This is something that is much more like an introverted quality and can be surprising to some. It can make the ENFJ appear more like an introvert and even cause people to misunderstand them a bit.
ENFJs definitely do their best to overcome these feelings, but after a while it can exhaust them. When the ENFJ is emotionally exhausted in this way, they can become distant from those around them. If they feel pushed to this point ENFJs will definitely lean more towards their introverted qualities. They will want to seclude themselves from others and focus on their own needs for a while, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
