    Hello Personality Hackers! I am a female ENFJ in my mid life. I chose a quick career path into the Medical Laboratory about 13 years ago. In the last 5 years, I have been miserable. Unable to “fit in” at work, and struggled to effectively communicate with my coworkers. I have spent so many hours on the couch watching TED Talks and google searches galore, trying to find the reason I was so unhappy at work, why I couldn’t connect with my coworkers, and felt like I was totally losing my mind. Until our lab staff each took the Myers Briggs Personality test. I noticed I was the only extroverted person in the lab. And it wasn’t until one lonely Saturday years later that I googled “ENFJ Careers” the first article I clicked on, it said “ENFJ careers to avoid” and there it was in plain writing…. laboratory, specifically pathology! I had the biggest emotional breakdown, then emotional breakthrough of my adult life. As an ENFJ, I was not a good fit for my career choice. And just like that I chose to redirect and transition into becoming a Career Transitions Coach. I am getting certified MBTI and will share the GIFT of the Myers Briggs test with as many others as I can!

    The most sound and intriguing information on ENFJ I have ever heard! I’ve found my tribe and look forward to listening and learning more. You both have an excellent way of delivering the message of typology and anything you say about the great Carol Jung perks up my ears! Thank you l! I just bought your book and I can’t wait to get reading!

    I’m a 24 year old ENFJ software developer. After first finding out my type I figured I was an outlier but now learning that I am a normalizing flavor a lot more things clicked. I have worked for both small intimate companies and major cooperations. Thus far, I appreciate the impact my work can have on large scales through large companies however it is difficult to get managers to get on board with ideas that may cost more money or take longer to make but will provide a better experience for our users and developers. Soon I will be looking for a company that has both a large impact with their products and as well as catering enough to put in effort to make the best user experience possible.
    I am enjoying the podcast and learning a lot of useful information that I use to help others around me. Thank you for providing me this source of knowledge.

    I am a recent follower of your podcast and absolutely love it. Thank you!. I am an university academic, love teaching and research and take immense pleasure in mentoring and training the young ones. My interests and expertise are immunotherapies for cancer. I could completely relate to this episode. I have tried to leave academia and try my hand at other options, never felt satisfied or felt that I fit in (business/accounting). I am back to what I love most and do best and truly believe it is a lot to do with my ENFJ type. just a feedback to say you are spot on! (as always I guess!:))

    Thanks Joel and Antonia,

    I apologise if I’ve come off a bit negative about any of your podcasts – whatever I think about the limitations of Dr Nardi’s studies, these podcasts are still great.

    I’m now self-typing as an ENFP in a lifelong Si-grip, though am not normally in ‘crisis mode’ and that was what confused me. My new typing is partly (not entirely) due to the description of ‘Normalising’ ENFP in Dr Nardi’s book, though my Fi seems semi-holistic.

    It seems that the Normalising/Harmonizing sub-types have a more introverting bent, while the Assertive/Creative sub-types have a more extraverting bent, and this could partly explain ambiversion in some people like myself.

    I’m also entertaining the idea that people could have secondary sub-types based on the orientation of their other 2 main functions.
