Humannetrics Jung Typology Test Result

Carl Jung and his epic theories always interested me in so many ways in different levels. I have always preferred him over Freud. I love going to my Psychology lecture classes because of him. He made a huge impact and influence in the world and until this day, people still talk about him. 

One late afternoon, a friend of mine tweeted about Myers-Briggs (16 Personality Types), and she said she's the INFJ (Introvert, iNtuitive, Feeling, Judging) type. I, sometimes, think that I am an INFJ but I knew deep down I was not an introvert. She then told me to take the online test. I was so excited because I was not aware that there was one online, so I took it! Before I tell you my result,  familiarize yourself first with the 16 types if you do not know what I am talking about.

It took a while for me to process my result but I knew all along, I was an INFJ.... sorta. The result of the test that I took is very accurate, I am an ENFJ. See! I love the fact that I know who I am, deep inside. I forgot to screencapture my result so I will show how the result looked like through my friend's result whom I recommended the test to.

That is her result. Although hers are bigger numbers, mine is a little different. I will type my results and just apply it to the picture above.

What my type result said:




EXTRAVERT (11%)   INTUITIVE (38%)    FEELING (38%)    JUDGING (1%)
  • You have slight preference of Extraversion over Introversion (11%)
  • You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (38%)
  • You have moderate preference of Feeling over Thinking (38%)
  • You have marginal or no preference of Judging over Perceiving (1%)

The difference between my result to my friend's is our percentage. If you compare the numbers, she is obviously more of a distinctive ENFJ, while I am on moderate.. Also since I only have marginal or sometimes, no preference of Judging over Perceiving by 1%, that makes me a bit of an ENFP as well. On top of being an ENFP, I mentioned earlier that I am sorta INFJ because I am only 11% extravert, and the numbers between being an ENFJ and INFJ is not too large. But all in all, I am an ENFJ as a whole. Are you lost yet? Yeah I would be too! I am still trying to understand my result and still slightly confused with the percentages provided. My confusion and curiosity drive me insane and it won't allow me to sleep in peace until I fill myself in and clear up all the muddle. Although I was so lazy that day, I had to deal with it and asked Google for some briefing. 

I am just going to copy and paste what I found, it may count as plagiarizing but I am so lazy to explain it in my own words.. Actually, I will copy and paste some characteristics of each letter.


Outgoing and people person vs. Comfortable feeling alone

Act first, then think vs. Think before action
Expressive and enthusiastic vs. Reserved, keeps everything to self
Easy to approach vs. Formal and unapproachable
Energizing people vs Calming people
Failing to give others the time to talk vs Failing to share his or her thoughts

Seek higher arousal to feel alive vs. Seek lower arousal to not feel overwhelmed

When we are dealing with the world outside of ourself, we are "extraverting". When we are inside our own minds, we are "introverting".

*Introverts see extraverts as shallow and pushy.
*Extraverts see introverts as egocentric and passive


Process information through patterns and impressions vs. Process information through the five senses
Focus on future and possibilities vs. Focus on the present

Abstract thinkers, read between the lines vs. Concrete thinker, what you see is what you get
Trusts gut feeling, intution, instinct vs. Limiting actions to facts and solid data

The "Sensing" preference absorbs data in a literal, concrete fashion. The "Intuitive" preference generates abstract possibilities from information that is gathered. We all use both Sensing and Intuition in our lives, but to different degrees of effectiveness and with different levels of comfort.

*Intuiting; seem theoretical and impractical

*Sensing; short-sighter and frivolous


Makes decisions based on principles and values vs. Makes decisions based on facts

Ruled by heart vs Ruled by mind
Judge based on feelings and circumstances vs. Judge based on logic
Easily hurt vs. Thick-Skinned
Empathetic vs. Firm with people
Driven by emotion, gentle vs. Driven by thought, critical

When someone makes a decision that is based on logic and reason, they are operating in 'Thinking' mode. When someone makes a decision that is based on their value system, or what they believe to be right, they are operating in 'Feeling' mode. We all use both modes for making decisions, but we put more trust into one mode or the other. A "Thinker" makes decisions in a rational, logical, impartial manner, based on what they believe to be fair and correct by pre-defined rules of behavior. A "Feeler" makes decisions on the individual case, in a subjective manner based on what they believe to be right within their own value systems.

*Feelers are seen unreliable and emotional

*Thinkers are seen cold and heartless


Like order, organization vs. Like to keep options open

Think sequentially vs. Think randomly
Want things planned and settled vs. Act spontaneously and adaptable
Make choices early vs. Make choices when necessary

People with the Judging preference want things to be neat, orderly and established. The Perceiving preference wants things to be flexible and spontaneous. Judgers want things settled, Perceivers want thing open-ended.

*Judgers seem opinionated and rigid
*Perceivers seem aimless drifters

ENFJ people according to Joe Butt

I will also copy some of Joe Butt statements that I agree on and then I will have my commentary by telling you how his descriptions of ENFJ's are similar to my personality.

In Februay 2005, Joe Butt talked about ENFJ.. and here's some of the things he said,
"ENFJs are the benevolent 'pedagogues' of humanity. They have tremendous charisma by which many are drawn into their..... Many ENFJs have tremendous power to manipulate others with their phenomenal interpersonal skills and unique salesmanship. But it's usually not meant as manipulation -- ENFJs generally believe in their dreams, and see themselves as helpers and enablers, which they usually are.."

I would have to agree on that. Not because I am conceited but I get this compliment a lot. My best friend constantly compliments me about my interpersonal skills and considers me as one of the few people who can engage in a conversation with anyone, no problem, even with strangers. Aside from people I know personally, strangers approach me and tell me that I possess some charm that they cannot explain. Pretty weird right? Yeah I felt that way too but I got used to it. I am very persuasive that I can make customers buy a product. I call it a gift! I feel lucky because some people are good in persuasion but they sometimes lack the charm. Ok, for someone who hasn't proven anything to the world, that is a vain thing for me to say.

"ENFJs know and appreciate people. Like most NFs, (and Feelers in general), they are apt to neglect themselves and their own needs for the needs of others. They have thinner psychological boundaries than most, and are at risk for being hurt or even abused by less sensitive people. ENFJs often take on more of the burdens of others than they can bear."

This is fairly accurate. I often comfort my friends, even the ones I am not associated with at all, just as long as I can provide anything to make them feel better, even when I have my own stuff to deal with. I am a very empathetic person and I get concerned easily towards someone who is having a hard time and it does not matter what kind of situation they are in, I try my best to reach out even when sometimes people think I am insincere. When it comes to appreciation, whenever someone does something for me, big or small, and some might not even seem like a big deal to the doer or giver, I make sure they get my sincerest thanks and that I appreciate every single thing they do for me. Sometimes I take an extra mile to show how grateful I am for them. I make sure I acknowledge the good deeds because sometimes, that is what I want to get. I know deep inside, I am a good person, and no matter how heavy the load I am carrying, I still put people's feelings and needs first.

"ENFJs are blessed through introverted intuition with clarity of perception in the inner, unconscious world."

My intuition, gut feeling, especially my instincts are right and exact 98% of the time. I do not think I have to further elaborate, it is pretty much self-explanatory. All I can say is, you cannot hide secrets from me, and your inner feelings toward me, it will show. I can read people through their actions and facial expressions, and sometimes through their words.

So that is the break down of the ENFJ personal category. It is time to talk about the career path.

I was curious and I was fascinated with how precise all the results and information were. My fascination led me to search for more details. This might be a very long post for you (you might not even care at all, but if you are still reading, you are a legend!) but I want to continue and elaborate more about it.

The next information you are going to read is from this site.

"ENFJs are enthusiastic problem-solvers, especially when they can put their strong intuition about people to good use."

"ENFJs strive for cooperation and work best in a harmonious environment where they can support other people and encourage their growth. They often take on a mentor role, seeing their primary aim as helping other people become better at what they do."

"ENFJs are often attracted to leadership roles; they naturally organize people to take advantage of their unique talents. They often have a strong vision in their work, and enjoy being able to use their creativity to develop innovative initiatives with a humanitarian focus. ENFJs appreciate teamwork, and they want to have the organizational resources to put their ideas into action. The ideal job for an ENFJ allows them to develop and implement ideas that improve the circumstances and well-being of other people."

"ENFJs often find themselves in occupations that require good interpersonal skills to establish productive collaboration as well as to establish or maintain effective work process. ENFJs one of the most “universal” personality types and they build successful careers in a broad range of organizations and occupations. There are many ENFJs found among mid- and high-rank management roles. Sales, various social services, counseling, teaching, healthcare, community care as well as legal and paralegal services are just some of the examples of favourable occupations for ENFJs."

The careers I found are:

  • Psychologist
  • Counselor
  • Social Worker
  • Teacher
  • Computer Engineer/Programmer
  • Game Designer
  • Politician
  • Manager (Business, Human Resources, etc.)
  • Fashion Merchandiser
  • Cardiology Technician

I do not think I need to further elaborate on this topic. All I can say is I am quite happy to see Psychologist and Human Resources Management on the list. There's a reason why I chose Psychology in the first place, and that is because I possess it in me. Ever since I found out what Psychology is about, I did not think twice and knew that it was for me. Not to mention the fact that this test is all based in Psychological study. Thanks Carl Jung!

Some famous ENFJs are:

  1. Nelson Mandela
  2. Bill Clinton
  3. Barack Obama
  4. Oprah Winfrey
  5. John Cusack
  6. Ben Affleck
  7. Martin Luther King Jr.
  8. Johnny Depp


"ENFJs make warm, committed lovers who are willing to go to great lengths for the sake of "The Relationship"....They take their commitments seriously, and are likely to put forth a lot of effort into making a relationship work once they have committed themselves to it. In the event that a relationship fails, the ENFJ will feel a lot of guilt, and take on blame for the failure, but they will move on with their lives with relative ease, without looking backwards."

"For the ENFJ, the most important aspect of a sexual encounter is the affirmation of love and affection.""Although the ENFJ will probably not ask for it, they need to be given sweet words and loving affirmation. Since they are so externally focused on serving people, they do not always pay attention to their own needs. However, if they focus entirely on giving without doing some taking, they may find themselves in an unhealthy, unbalanced relationship. They need to work on being aware of their needs, and being OK with verbalizing those needs to their partners.""The ENFJ is intensely and enthusiastically involved in their personal relationships. They bring fun and warmth into the equation, and are willing to work hard to make things work."

The entire population only has 3% of ENFJs. I just wanted to express how proud I am to be a part of that 3%. It is quite challenging to be an ENFJ because we have to bend, stretch and adjust to some people with personalities we do not get along with due to the fact that we like to please everyone and we want to get along with everybody. All these characteristics and description are very accurate to who I really am. I strive to make it as a responsibility to help those in need, especially to those are emotionally troubled (since I really do not have the means to help financially yet). A lot of people see me as a very supportive person and I love that people can see that. I also love bringing out the best in people. I tend to give warm affection to all the people I love. I am very passionate and I enjoy looking after people. But I am most proud of my values and how important my values are to me, and how I have no difficulty in sharing my opinions and ideas. It makes it really easy for me to communicate to others effectively and this is beneficial because it helps me connect to people. Actually, since I am all these things, I have this mentality that I want to be valued and somehow, in return, I hope to be prioritized once in a while. It is not easy to be an ENFJ, but all that I want is to focus on giving a warm, comforting and cheerful presence and approach to people.
