Fictional characters with the ENFJ personality type
by Louella Alderson
Today we look at 21 fictional ENFJ characters. ENFJs are charismatic and charming individuals. They have excellent people skills and are typically self-sacrificing, putting others’ needs ahead of their own. From this list of ENFJ characters, you can see that the predominant unhealthy personality trait is manipulation. ENFJs can use their social skills to their advantage, and can play people to get what they want. For example, Hans Westergaard from Frozen manipulated Elsa with his charm into trusting him and eventually falling for him.
From Jean Milburn, who is a sex therapist, to Mufasa, who teaches Simba all he knows about the Kingdom from a young age, ENFJs love to share their advice and help people, and they’re enthusiastic storytellers which makes it fun too!
