Meredith asked: “I have a friend who’s was a total ENFP but then he went through a traumatic experience and now he doesn’t seem like an ENFP at all. Could he have changed to an introverted type?”
Probably not, although, yes, if the trauma you’re referring to was physical head trauma, a stroke or anything that could cause brain damage and literal personality changes. However, I’m going to assume that you’re talking about something that was psychologically traumatizing.
First of all, everyone (hopefully) undergoes Continue reading

Question: “Hello Mr. INTJ. I am an INFP. On the net, I always find that some of the famous authors, actors, writers, artists, music composers are INFPs . But I have never found a single famous military leader, politician, athlete, player, scientist (except Einstein), sci-fi writer in the list of INFPs. All other personality types have some or more of these ranges. Even ENFPs have some world class leaders (though shown in the dark side on celebritytypes.com). In the list of INFPs there are some who have committed suicide. On the other side there are people who have committed mass homicides in other personality types. Why are INFPs always so meek in their behavior? Why are we not as outgoing as other types? I even found on the net that INFPs are the economically the poorest of all types. I will be thankful to you if you put some light on this topic. I know you can understand what I mean to say. So please answer my question as soon as possible.”
Answer: Hello Mr. big questions. I interrupted the queue just to answer this one, so first off, I’ll give you some NFP scientists to make friends with. Michio Kaku and Brian Cox are my two favourites. Go and look them up.
I can tell you right off the bat why ENFPs are more likely to be famous leaders than INFPs. It’s merely because their Te is higher up in the function hierarchy than INFPs.
As to INFPs always being meek? Actually, no, they’re not. Continue reading
