That TV Tropes/MBTI Meme That's Been Floating Around...
I was tagged by both recycledstars and bethanyactually, and I love the theory behind Myers-Briggs, so yay! Very fun. Let’s do this.
Rules: Find out what characters share the same personality type as you here and list the characters that you find relevant below. Then tag five friends and let them know you tagged them.
ENFPs like to change things for the better, and have contagious enthusiasm, but no patience for crossing I’s and dotting T’s. They are good at anticipating others’ needs, but crave attention and recognition.
Fun fact! They had all of us take this test in high school, and I tested as an ENTP/ENTJ (they had me basically in the middle as far as the last letter. Then, out of curiosity and because I had felt that my life had just changed direction so drastically, I had myself tested again after my dad died, about a year and a half later, and I was a straight ENFP. I felt a lot more at home with that personality description, anyway.
Wow. And that was really personal. Hello, personal life.
I always knew about some of these, like Lorelai and Maria Von Trapp (and Pinkie Pie…who is pretty much a dead ringer for me…I’m a combination of her and Twilight Sparkle), but some of these surprise me (Eliot Spencer from Leverage was on here, but I highly doubt Eliot’s an ENFP.) I notice that ENFP’s are often cast as like childish or random side characters, so it’s probably not a coincidence that Lorelai Gilmore is my most favorite fictional character of all time. She was crazy and expressive, but she made her situation work for her, she could command a room, and she was taken seriously. She played up those qualities as her strengths, which was nice, because up until that point in my life, I had labeled those parts of myself as “bad” and things I should repress.
The vast majority of my close friends are also ENFP’s. Granted, I was a theater/music kid (fun fact #2: I actually worked as a madrigal singer at the Renaissance Festival for 2 years instead of doing normal high school stuff like going to homecoming and not spending 3-10 hours in rehearsal 5-7 days out of the week XD), and there are PLENTY of us hopping around that area.

Hopefully y’all haven’t done it already! Haha. As usual, only do this if you want. If you don’t know your Myers-Briggs type, there’s a good, easy test here.
