Actually I Am An Idealist Champion

Saturday, December 20th, 2003 | Uncategorized | Comments Off

Should have read on. I’m actually an ENFP, an idealist-champion. Funny, back in college, I was an INFP, guess I’ve opened up since then :)

These totally describe me, and it turns out I have the perfect job here at default.ThoughtWorks.

Your Ideal Job:

  • Provides opportunity for conversations with people with whom you can brainstorm and share ideas.
  • Allows and encourages you to innovate, giving you room to experiment.
  • Exposes you to new ideas and experiences.
  • Lets you combine people, ideas, products, and services in new and unusual ways.
  • Provides a lot of variety.
  • Takes place in an expressive, harmonious environment.
  • You are an “eternal optimist.”

Things you’re good at:

  • Because you are slow to dismiss “inappropriate” notions, you often arrive at the kinds of brilliant solutions that seem obvious once they are implemented.
  • Your taste for adventure means that your “out of the box thinking” doesn’t come from thin air; you draw on an unusually broad diversity of experiences and observations.
  • You can be as supportive and as protective of other people’s wild ideas as you are of your own and help to keep your workplace from stagnating.
  • You may find that you are often the only person willing to say something that desperately needs saying.
  • You are very articulate and use that gift to dispel conflict that arises from misunderstanding.
  • You can often talk your way into or out of situations.
  • You think well on your feet.

Things to be aware of:

  • Your enthusiasm may seem overly intense to some people in some situations.
  • Your pursuit of novelty means you sometimes move on before you harvest the fruit of your own ideas.
  • You may unrealistically expect other people to be as excited about your projects or goals as you are.
  • You may have a tendency to “stir things up just to see what comes out of it” without considering the consequences.
  • You have great difficulty making choices; you may be seen as a dilettante.
  • Nonconformity may mean that you underachieve or are a late bloomer to success.
  • Your dislike of repetition can lead to your being less than conscientious.

Im An Idealist

Monday, December 15th, 2003 | Uncategorized | Comments Off

turns out, according to the advisor team

Idealists, 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 self—always this quest for self-knowledge and self-improvement drives their imagination. And they want to help others make the journey. 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 to fulfill their potentials.

Idealists are rare, making up no more than 8 to 10 percent of the population. But their ability to inspire people with their enthusiasm and their idealism has given them influence far beyond their numbers.

The Four types of Idealists are:

Healers (INFP) | Counselors (INFJ) | Champions (ENFP) | Teachers (ENFJ)
