ENFJs put a lot of effort and enthusiasm into their relationships. To some extent, the ENFJ defines themselves by the closeness and authenticity of their personal relationships, and are therefore highly invested in the business of relationships. They have very good people skills and are affectionate and considerate. They are warmly affirming and nurturing. They excel at bringing out the best in others and warmly supporting them. They want to respond affirmation from their relationships, although they have a problem asking for it. When a situation calls for it, the ENFJ will become very sharp and critical. After having made their point, they will return to their natural, warm selves. They may have a tendency to “smother” their loved ones but are generally highly valued for their genuine warmth and caring natures.
