ENFJ relationships are often full of inspiration, affection, and fun.This Myers-Briggs personality is defined as being extraverted, intuitive, feeling, and judging.If left unchecked this kind of behavior will push away the “giver’s” partner and inevitably destroy the relationship.
Partners have to stand their ground and ignore appeasing comments like, “Seeing you happy makes me happy.” The “giver’s” need to make others happy and to “do what’s best” can kick into overdrive and become smothering.
This is one of the less common Myers-Briggs personalities, accounting for an estimated two percent of the population.
This type of extravert is often well-loved wherever they go and is very dedicated to finding the right life-long companion.
Broaching the subject of overprotection/smothering will need to be done delicately and in a manner that lets the ENFJ know that he or she isn’t a bad person or companion – just a little overzealous in the Care Department.
ENFJs will try to fulfil their role as a partner/spouse/parent to the best of their ability and generally make good parents.
