Really, i don’t this like this picture says…most of the time.

ENFJ: The “Mentor”
Extraverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging

I really enjoyed how Wikipedia Put it: Extraverted feeling types seek continuity through harmonious relationships and collective values. They excel at picking up on the tone of a situation and acting accordingly, adding warmth to a cool setting or turning sour into sweet. They naturally seek to know what people do well, what they enjoy, and where and how they work. They seem to have an infinite number of acquaintances from all walks of life and are always on the lookout for people in need and those who can help out. ENFJs weave and strengthen the collective fabric of social conventions and interactions. Inclusiveness is important and they are particularly sensitive to those who are excluded.
ENFJs focus on others, feeling a glow when those around them are happy, and troubled when something is amiss. They are natural cheerleaders, often expressing support, gratitude, and encouragement, and heaping praise onto those they appreciate. They take note of what is being done and what needs doing, offering their assistance wherever necessary.
ENFJs enjoy organizing group activities and tend to take their commitments seriously. In general, they are reliable and do not like to disappoint others. As team players and project leaders, they have a gift for rallying their players, focusing on what is being done right and each member’s strengths. They are loyal and they expect loyalty. They carry conversations well, finding common ground with their speaker. They tend to find the correct and gracious way to respond in any given situation, no matter how tense or uncomfortable it is.
Extraverted feeling types will uphold a wide range of values, simply because shared values are what create harmony. Some will profess the importance of tough-minded logic, justice and scholarly debate because their environments have these shared values. They tend to adopt the collective values of those in their social group.”

First off, I love have a vast group of friends/acquaintances, that’s very true in my life. Also I love meeting knew people and including everyone on everything.  It talks about the ability to pick up on “the tone” of the situation and acting accordingly, and I feel that’s true, most of the time.  Picking up on peoples emotions is also something I feel excel at, but who knows, I could be wrong. In a group, I do enjoy being in a leader position, and if not the leader, I still voice my opinion heavily on the project. But, I am a huge believer in the “think before you speak” mentality. That way, I can find the best way to say something without hurting someone’s feels. And I’d like to avoid that at all cost. I didn’t find anything that I completely disagreed with, or at all with. I guess I am a full fledged ENFJ!

Being concerned with people as played heavily into my artwork. I’ve been really drawn to working with the figure after the last project, and hopefully will continue with that. Another website describes us as “seeing the big picture” and this maybe why I tend to plan a lot before I even start working on the piece. Some people can start working and add on as they go, but I need to have, at least, a good idea of what the final product will look like.
