This is FASCINATING you guys! I can’t believe that I’ve never taken this personality (temperament) test before? It totally describes me to a “Tee”. And now I understand why it is that I often tend to get on people’s nerves, while at the same time inspiring them to new heights. Hell yeah, I was BORN to be a cheer leader! A champion of the people! A fighter for justice and a trail-blazer ta-boot! My sword, it’s name, is “LOGOS”!
ENFP (extraversion, intuition, feeling, perception)
- E – Extroversion preferred to introversion: ENFPs often feel motivated by their interaction with people. They tend to enjoy a wide circle of acquaintances, and they gain energy in social situations (whereas introverts expend energy).
- N – Intuition preferred to sensing: ENFPs tend to be more abstract than concrete. They focus their attention on the big picture rather than the details, and on future possibilities rather than immediate realities.
- F – Feeling preferred to thinking: ENFPs tend to value personal considerations above objective criteria. When making decisions, they often give more weight to social implications than to logic.
- P – Perception preferred to judgment: ENFPs tend to withhold judgment and delay important decisions, preferring to “keep their options open” should circumstances change.
ENFPs are initiators of change, keenly perceptive of possibilities. They energize and stimulate others through their contagious enthusiasm. They prefer the start-up phase of a project or relationship, and are tireless in the pursuit of new-found interests. ENFPs are able to anticipate the needs of others and to offer them needed help and appreciation. They bring zest, joy, liveliness, and fun to all aspects of their lives. They are at their best in fluid situations that allow them to express their creativity and use their charisma. They tend to idealize people, and can be disappointed when reality fails to fulfill their expectations. They are easily frustrated if a project requires a great deal of follow-up or attention to detail.

Keirsey Temperament Sorter-II Temperament Discovery Report
Idealist Champion (ENFP)
This Keirsey Temperament Discovery report has been provided compliments of Keirsey.com and Toluna in appreciation of your membership on our Consumer Research online panel.
This report has been prepared exclusively for Shoshana Rose
Your KTS-II results indicate that your personality type is Idealist Champion (ENFP)
All Idealists share the following core characteristics
- Idealists are enthusiastic, trust their intuitions, yearn for romance, seek their true selves, prize meaningful relationships, and dream of attaining wisdom.
- Idealists pride themselves on being loving, kindhearted, and authentic.
- Idealists tend to be giving, trusting, spiritual, and focused on personal journeys and human potential.
- Idealists make intense mates, nurturing parents, and inspirational leaders.
Idealists (NFs), as a temperament, are passionately concerned with personal growth and development. Idealists strive to discover who they are and how they can become their best possible selves — always this quest for self-knowledge and self-improvement drives their imagination and they want to help others make the journey as well. Idealists are naturally drawn to working with people, and whether in education or counseling, in social services or personnel work, in journalism or the ministry, they are gifted at helping others find their way in life, often inspiring them to grow as individuals and fulfill their potentials.
Idealists are sure that friendly cooperation is the best way for people to achieve their goals. Conflict and confrontation upset them because they seem to put up angry barriers between people. Idealists dream of creating harmonious, even caring personal relations, and they have a unique talent for helping people get along with each other and work together for the good of all. Such interpersonal harmony might be a romantic ideal, but Idealists are incurable romantics who prefer to focus on what might be, rather than what is. The real, practical world is only a starting place for Idealists: they believe that life is filled with possibilities waiting to be realized, rich with meanings calling out to be understood. This idea of a mystical or spiritual dimension to life — things that are not visible or things that have not yet happened and that can only be known through intuition — is far more important to Idealists than the world of material things.
Highly ethical in their actions, Idealists hold themselves to a strict standard of personal integrity. They must be true to themselves and to others, and they can feel quite guilty when they are dishonest, false, or insincere. More often, however, Idealists are the very soul of kindness. Particularly in their personal relationships, Idealists are without question filled with love and good will. They believe in giving of themselves to help others; they cherish a few warm, sensitive friendships, usually with people with whom they can bond emotionally and spiritually, sharing their deepest feelings and their complex inner worlds.
Idealists (NFs) are relatively rare, making up no more than 15 to 20 percent of the population. However, their ability to inspire people with their enthusiasm and their idealism has given them influence far beyond their numbers.
Idealist Champion Top Strengths
- You are imaginative and creative, and you are able to constantly think outside of the box and verbalize your ideas very well.
- You have an abundance of enthusiasm, energy, and excitement, and are very supportive of other team members.
- You are good at inventing new ways of doing things and seeing new solutions to problems.
- You are skilled at creating and envisioning concepts and projects.
Overview of the Champion (ENFP)
ENFPs are extremely rare, accounting for only 2–8% of the population
As a Champion, you are full of energy and can spend great amounts of time discussing ideas and possibilities with others. You always look to find meaning in the world, and you are more likely to be the champion of causes rather than individuals. Living fully in this way is extremely important to you, and it is your nature. You observe all that is going on around you, and you are quick to bring peace to any unpleasant interaction. You, as a Champion, are not afraid to speak up and defend what that you think is right and correct, just, or fair.
Idealist Champion Areas to Work On
- Your enthusiasm may seem overly intense to some people in some situations.
- You may unrealistically expect other people to be as excited about your projects or goals as you are.
- Your dislike of repetition can lead to your being less than conscientious.
How You Communicate
As a Champion, you communicate with others by allowing them to explore different ways and approaches to enhance the task they’re doing or to solve a problem. You will like to hear others come up with several viewpoints, and you will encourage them to participate in discussions and negotiations. You are really enthusiastic about new ideas and approaches, even though some may not be the most practical ones.
Idealist Champions and Career Considerations
Because you live in anticipation of an exciting future, in your ideal job you will be asked to stretch your imagination on a continual basis. Existing ideas, individuals, groups of people, products, services, and the relationships between these things can trigger flashes of insight about how “what is” could unfold into “what might be.” You feel rewarded when you are free to share your insights with people who encourage your creativity and who support the unpredictable process by which you narrow down a stream of ideas into innovations that are meaningful within the scheme of your personal values. You are likely to be comfortable taking on a leadership role as long as it doesn’t place you in an arbitrary hierarchy.
- Champions thrive in an environment that provides opportunities for conversations with people with whom they can brainstorm and share ideas.
- Champions can be as supportive and as protective of other people’s wild ideas as they are of their own and help to keep their workplace from stagnating.
- Champions’ pursuit of novelty means they sometimes move on before they harvest the fruit of their own ideas.
Love and Relationships for the Idealist Champion
Seeing the world anew through another person’s eyes and sharing that world with them, the magic of sex, the miracle of raising a family — all of these things can be of paramount importance to you. You can be an incurably passionate and compassionate person. However, these qualities may not express themselves in traditional ways. In private life, you may never give the kinds of gifts that other types favor: roses, expensive jewelry, or technical or utilitarian gadgets. Instead, you tend to give gifts that tell stories or symbolize your feelings about your relationship.
The Idealist Champion’s Learning Style
- Champions like to work and learn in groups.
- Champions want to discuss new perceptions and values.
