Personality type ENFJ: Coach

Coaches (ENFJs) understand people, care about them, and have a special quality that brings out the best in others. They provide support and ensure a good time. They are fully focused on understanding, support, and encouragement. A Coach also enjoys being the center of attention themselves, in this way inspiring and leading others. They look for the good in others and bring out the best in people. They love harmony and cooperation.

  • Good skills in dealing with people
  • Extroverted, with a genuine interest in how others think and feel
  • Usually do not like to be alone
  • They see everything from a human perspective
  • Extremely effective in dealing with personal subjects
  • Likely to put the interests of others above their own

ENFJs are interested in people, so they can also involve withdrawn people in matters. They listen to others, but they also have a pronounced own opinion.
