Who ENFJs Are Most Compatible With
ENFJ’s personality compatibility is based on the cognitive alignment of the types, their temperament, and their interaction style. ENFJs are as follows:
- Cognitive functions: Fe Ni Se Ti
- Temperament (Kiersey): Idealists
- Interaction style (Linda Berens): In Charge
There is no perfect 100% compatible match. ENFJs are scored for their compatibility with other personality types based on four factors- communication, passion, friendship, and partnership. A match that is high in one is often lower in another. It is up to the individual to decide which factors are most important for them in a relationship.
ENFJs have the greatest compatibility in communication with types that share the same cognitive functions. The cognitive functions are like languages our minds speak and when someone has the same functions, we do not have to translate our minds to them. ENFJs speak the languages of social connection and patterns. As a result, ENFJs communication compatibility can be broken down as follows:
- High Compatibility: INFJ, ENFJ, ESTP, ISTP
- Medium High Compatibility: INTJ, ENTJ, ESFJ, ISFJ
- Medium Low Compatibility: INTP, ENTP, ESFP, ISFP
- Low Compatibility: ISTJ, ESTJ, ENFP, INFP
For partnership, ENFJs are most compatible with IP types- meaning INTP, INFP, ISTP, and ISFP. Together, they are the most efficient and get the most done. The two balance each other out in terms of roles and preferred task focus. Furthermore, their working styles do not clash with each other, preventing conflict and complacency.
For friendship, ENFJs tend to be compatible with fellow NJ types. This means they have the greatest compatibility for companionship with INTJs, ENTJs, ENFJs, and INFJs. These types see the world through a similar lens and so can easily get along and enjoy activities together.
ENFJs have the greatest amount of passion compatibility in a relationship with those that have opposite cognitive functions to them. For them, ENFPs, INFPs, ESTJs, and ISTJs are polar opposites to them and create a spark. However, this passion can also turn to the most electric fights. These types together are the most likely to resolve their arguments with “physical activities.”
Who ENFJs Are Least Compatible With
ENFJs have the greatest amount of conflict, and thus least compatibility, with the personality types that have opposite cognitive functions. When two people with opposite perspectives come together, they are bound to conflict eventually. While all couples have arguments no matter what their types, below are some common points of conflict for ENFJs with other personality types.
Incompatibility with TJ types- ESTJ, ISTJ, ENTJ, INTJ
- The TJ’s focus on efficiency can bulldoze over the harmony of the group and other people’s feelings which distresses the ENFJ. The ENFJ interprets this behavior as being an “a*-hole”. Conversely, the ENFJ’s focus on group harmony can forsake efficiency. The TJ interprets this behavior as being a pushover or fake to make other people happy. The TJ’s directness can hurt the feelings of others. The ENFJ then feels responsible to clean up the TJ’s “mess”. Finally, the ENFJ’s need to fit in and empathize first can put their own interests and truth at jeopardy. So, the TJ feels responsible to clean up the ENFJ’s “mess”.
Incompatibility with SJ types- ESTJ, ISTJ, ESFJ, ISFJ
- ENFJs are driven to move towards a singular vision for the future. However, SJs prefers to maintain their system for what has been done in the past. So, the ENFJ sees the SJ as stuck in their ways. Conversely, the SJ sees the ENFJ as moving too quickly into the unknown. Both appear immovable to the other.
Incompatibility with NP types- ENFP, INFP, ENTP, INTP
- The ENFJ seeks to narrow down to 1 meaning/path while NPs seeks to expand to many meanings/paths. ENFJs are determined to “know” while NPs are determined to never truly “know”- closing vs. opening possibilities. Then, conflict arises over time wasted brainstorming by the NP but not deciding as the ENFJ wishes to do.
Incompatibility with FP types- ENFP, INFP, ESFP, ISFP
- To the FP, the ENFJ can appear fake and seem too concerned with fitting or people pleasing instead of being themselves. To the ENFJ, the FP can appear “selfish” and seem too wrapped up in themselves rather than getting along with others. The ENFJ focuses on the group rather than the individual. Conversely, the FP focuses on their own likes and identity over the group harmony.

ENFJ Compatibility Chart

What an ENFJ Looks for in a Relationship
ENFJ has very particular desires for a relationships, and they will not pursue it without the following elements:
- Deep intimate bond
- Long-term commitment
- Emotional sensitivity
ENFJ’s don’t look for relationships just for fun – although they enjoy that as well. As strategic planners, they look for a relationship in which they see a promising future. When they find the right person, they aim to build a deep, intimate bond.ENFJs ultimately want to end up in a committed relationship.
All they want from a relationship is strong, non-judgmental support who can understand ENFJ’s powerful feeling-based approach to life. An ENFJ can be incredibly in-tune with their emotions, as well as the emotions of others due to their awareness directed externally. As such, they want someone equally as compassionate, who works hard to be sensitive to ENFJ’s perspective.
What an ENFJ Needs in a Relationship
In a relationship, ENFJ have specific needs to fulfill their well of emotional intensity and capacity for love.
- High energy and free emotional expression
- Reminders to take care of needs
- Safe space to speak their mind
ENFJs know exactly what they want in a partner due to their perfectionism and obsession with planning. However, there are certain elements they need in a relationship – especially since they tend to neglect their own needs.
Because ENFJs have a lot of love to give, combined with their energy, they need someone who can match their level. More importantly, they need a relationship that allows their emotions to be seen and their actions to be appreciated. More than anything, ENFJs need repetitive reminders to slow down and take care of themselves.
A relationship with someone acutely aware of their wellbeing is crucial for the ENFJ to thrive. Furthermore, because ENFJs prefer to go along with their loved ones’ wants to keep them happy (or keep the peace in the case of conflict), they need a voice in the relationship. In other words, they require a partner who can make the ENFJ feel comfortable enough to vocalize their honest needs and desires.
What an Ideal Relationship for an ENFJ Looks Like
Since ENFJ values time and order, the most ideal relationship is on a schedule. ENFJs usually have a lot going on and prefer to schedule time for their partner, alongside social outings, dates, and their other responsibilities.
Ideally, ENFJ would love to be around their partner a lot. Their intuitive, deep imagination does not diminish their extroversion. Being alone for too long doesn’t sit well with ENFJ, especially in a relationship.
How an ENFJ Acts in Relationships
At the beginning of a relationship, the ENFJ is eager to prove their reliability. Deeply emotional, yet incredibly outspoken, ENFJs don’t have a filter when expressing their feelings.
ENFJs can be very idealistic, and they treat their relationships accordingly. They can bend over backward for their partner, always taking heed to give them what they need. ENFJs enjoy doing and providing things that they know will delight their partner. Usually, they do such acts without an expectation for anything in return.
However, they can become disheartened if their partner does not return their appreciation or emotional expression of their love.
What a Bad Relationship for an ENFJ Looks Like
ENFJs can easily fall into relationships in which they give more than they receive. Because of their eagerness to please (not to be confused with disingenuous people-pleasing), their consistent acts of love and help can be taken for granted.
A long-term lack of appreciation can lead to bitterness. When ENFJs are upset, they have no qualms about expressing it outwardly, even if their preference is to avoid conflict.
A bad relationship can be filled with arguments or resentment simmering under the surface if no one steps in to address the conflict. Since ENFJ cares very much about their partner’s opinion, a relationship in which they feel criticized or unimportant to their partner can turn messy quickly.
The ENFJ is a heroic helper, and this is clear in how they express their romantic love with a person. In love, ENFJ is clear and authentic about it, showing it through their words or actions. With a partner, ENFJs enjoy quality time getting to know them in depth and will go out of their way to do acts of love or service for them.
What is an ENFJ in love like?
An ENFJ in love isn’t afraid to reveal it. Towards the source of their affections, ENFJs will shower more attention than normal.
They will try to engage the person into conversations about feelings and profound topics. ENFJs will be more in tune with their crush’s state of mind, eager to provide acts of service when necessary.
ENFJ Males in Love
The charismatic ENFJ male is a romantic at heart. Although typically much less expressive than females, ENFJ males will show more emotion with the person they love than others with whom they are friendly.
ENFJ males value strong emotional connections, so they are very picky about a potential partner. When they are in love, though, they don’t hesitate to let their guard down.
ENFJ Females in Love
The ENFJ female will be sincere and clear from the onset about their feelings. Much of the time, her bubbly, open personality can be seen as flirtatious, although she is naturally adept in social skills.
However, when she has her eyes on someone, her emotional sincerity will turn up a notch, made obvious by her attempts to get to know the person with deep, long conversations. Talking about feelings is a favorite pastime.
How an ENFJ Knows They are in Love
ENFJs will always find a reason to spend time with the person they love. As social as they are, it can be very obvious when their attention is honed in on one individual. Upon falling in love, they will endlessly ask questions and try to get to know the other person, more so than the usual curiosity towards a new acquaintance.
How an ENFJ Shows Love
It’s no secret how an ENFJ shows their love for someone. To wit, they announce it to the world unabashedly. ENFJs are diligent in providing acts of service to cater to their partner’s every need, whether they say so or not.
A mature ENFJ’s high emotional intelligence allows them to effectively communicate their feelings. When they are not talking about how amazing their partner is, they are content to relish time with them.
ENFJ Love Language
The ENFJ’s top love languages are tied between quality time and words of affirmations. Both of these make perfect sense when you break down the ENFJ: their extroversion and need for connection makes them crave verbal affirmations of fondness from their partner.
Does an ENFJ Fall in Love Easily
While highly particular about their choice for a romantic partner, ENFJs can very well plummet into a passionate frenzy. They do fall in love easily with the right person, but only if the ENFJ can see the relationship working long-term. Once they are sure, ENFJs devote their commitment and loyalty to them.
How to Make an ENFJ Fall in Love
What makes an ENFJ fall in love is not much different than anyone else. However, their high standards dictate that the person they do fall in love with passes all desirable qualities with full marks. In particular, an incredible sense of humor can blow the ENFJ away.
Showing ENFJs authenticity, emotional intelligence, and compassion are also essential ways to squeeze in their hearts. Alongside that, they love someone who is an excellent listener, since ENFJs are known to chatter endlessly.
How to Love an ENFJ Long Term
To make a relationship work long-term, ENFJ’s partner must show and express their appreciation continuously. An ENFJ’s immense kindness should never go unnoticed. A patient, forthcoming person is best to offer these sorts of outward displays.
Spending time with them allows them to feel they are valuable to their partner. They will allow their partner to see their full, emotional spectrum without judgment.
Is an ENFJ Romantic?
A hopeless romantic at heart, ENFJ will stop at nothing to show their partner how deeply they care… even if it can be excessive at times. They are always there, sometimes hovering at the beck and call of their partner’s needs. Some may misunderstand ENFJ as clingy.
More accurately, ENFJs are simply honest and unashamed about their family, and delight in sharing them. To make a budding relationship worthwhile, ENFJS prefers a slow burn. They like to take their time, riding the romance out so they can prove their seriousness about it.
Is an ENFJ a Good Lover?
Both in everyday life and intimate situations, ENFJ is an all-around excellent lover. While they crave the same level they push out, they don’t ask for love, instead putting their personal needs in the relationships on the backburner. Instead, they focus on their partner’s comfort, happiness, and desires first – and that in itself makes them happy.
While ENFJs are excellent daters, with a smooth, comfortable personality that can charm just about anyone, they have high standards regarding those to whom they give their time. Dating is a way for them to find that right, loyal person. Dates are also creative projects for them, as ENFJs love to indulge in artistic outings, social gatherings, or fun outside activities in nature.
ENFJ Dating Personality
The charismatic ENFJ has the right mixture of depth and social aptitude that allows them to be an amazing date. They can navigate just about any social scene with their flirtatious nature. However, people can misread their interactions with ENFJ for more than just friendliness.
In reality, ENFJ chooses their date carefully. When they set their interest on a person, they will boost their flirting skills up a notch. ENFJs prefer to show their interest clearly from the beginning, so they are more obvious than their usual compassionate, outgoing demeanor.
During dates, ENFJs enjoy pairing up with their date at a fun social outing or event, like an art show. Museums are a top choice, although they also enjoy doing unique outdoor activities together. Since their external world fuels them, ENFJ enjoys doing engaging things on dates.
What Type of Person does an ENFJ Usually Date?
ENFJ can get along with just about anyone. However, their perfectionist essence makes them rule out candidates for dating quickly.
What can reel them in is someone who is immensely funny and equal in compassion. They want someone authentic in their communication, intuitive, and perceptive.
Moreover, they have a strong moral code, so someone who aligns in their values will usually pass through ENFJ’s filter.
What Type of Person SHOULD an ENFJ date?
ENFJs should weed out the right people, even if some seem to have an alluring attraction going on. The right person must have a modicum of compassion, to understand that the ENFJ deserves to receive as much affection as they provide. An outgoing person can best match the ENFJ’s seemingly endless amount of energy.
Dating an ENFJ
Courtship with an ENFJ can feel like a melodrama. With their overzealous emotional displays and sentimental core, they can turn their date’s life into a romance movie. Throwing their all into devising thoughtful dates, gifts, and other conventional shows of love, ENFJ stop at nothing to be clear on where they stand.
Having an ENFJ Boyfriend
Due to the ENFJ boyfriend’s sincere intuition and perceptive eye, he is capable of being ultra attentive to his partner’s needs. While stubborn in a lot of cases, they can yield easily to maintain relationship harmony. ENFJ boyfriends tend to be more flirtatious and present with their partner, finding any excuse to spend time together.
Having an ENFJ Girlfriend
Dating an ENFJ girlfriend can make one feel like they are on a pedestal. She will move mountains to ensure her partner is receiving an abundant amount of care and love. She will always find ways to help in furthering her partner’s goals in life.
Appreciating her attempts and acknowledging that she truly cares what her partner thinks of her even if she acts like she doesn’t is important to make the relationship work.
ENFJ Compatibility Matches
ENFJ and ENFP
Since ENFJs consistently aim for control over all of their projects, a relationship between an ENFJ and an ENFP can present an interesting challenge. These personality types get excited about similar things and have similar aims in a relationship; both value quality time with their significant other very highly. However, ENFPs tend to be impulsive, which can be difficult for an ENFJ to appreciate, so there is the potential for conflict in this relationship if each partner does not fully understand the other’s personality type.
ENFJ and ESFJ
An ENFJ will generally get along well in a relationship with an ESFJ, due to their shared values and empathy. Emotional issues may nonetheless become a problem since both parties tend to avoid conflict. If they are willing to fully work through any issues, these personality types can do very well together.
ENFJ and INFJ
While INFJ is not the outright best match for ENFJ based on personality type alone, an ENFJ-INFJ relationship has its strengths. These two types have similar values, and both will seek to maintain clear communication with their partner. They may still have problems understanding each other, since ENFJs tend to think and act forthrightly in a manner that may cause INFJs to perceive them as shallow, and INFJs are often indecisive.
Myers-Briggs Personality Type Compatibility: What kind of people are meant for each other

There are many ways to understand who you really are and what kind of people you will be most comfortable communicating with. Some people trust horoscopes and compatibility of zodiac signs, others rely on socionics, others trust only psychology. Any of the ways can be working if you do not perceive it as the only truth: the truth is always in the middle. nine0003
Among the various typologies, Myers-Briggs "characters" have recently gained popularity. This typology was developed by the writer Isabelle Briggs Myers and her mother Katerina Cooks Briggs, based on Jung's typology. Typology became especially popular in the 1940s and became a popular way in the United States and Europe to determine the professional and personal inclinations of a person.
Tests for this typology are currently included in the curriculum of many colleges, despite the fact that academic circles are wary of this classification. Psychologists and psychiatrists accept typology with many reservations and admit that it is more of a fun way to get to know yourself than a working principle worth living by. nine0003

What types are
We talked about different types of personality in more detail in a separate article. In short, all people have four parameters on the basis of which the division is made: introversion / extraversion, sensory / intuition, thinking / feeling, decisions / perception.
Four parameters multiplied by 4 options - you get 16 different variations. To save time, we will not describe the features of each - it's all on the Internet. Here they are:
👉 To understand what type you belong to, you must pass the test - short or long -long.
What personality types converge best
The most optimal pairs are obtained from people who have two parameters that match, that is, two letters. This means that these people look at the world in the same way and perceive the surrounding reality. On the other hand, people with a complete match of characteristics will be bored together, and therefore at least 1-2 letters should be different. nine0003
Description: An enthusiastic, creative and sociable mind who never gets bored.
Ideal couple: INFJ and INTJ
Ideal partners for this extroverted type are not the same extroverts at all. ENFP is a rather impulsive type, and therefore he needs someone down to earth and intuitive. In turn, the energy of the “fighters” will not let INFJs and INTJs get bored. nine0003
These people seem to be made for serious long-term relationships: they are responsible, loyal and carefully choose a life partner. Someone completely opposite, like a determined extrovert, will help you enjoy the facets of the relationship that are most dear to them - intimacy, loyalty and depth of feelings.
- Adobe Stock
The most spontaneous and impulsive of all 16 types is not easy to deal with. In addition, they are also introverts, and therefore all the magic and fireworks of emotions take place inside them. Extroverts will help this type to get out of his "shell", and the ability to plan ahead will save the couple from sudden decisions. nine0003
"Administrator" believes only what he sees with his own eyes. An ideal partner will help him focus not only on facts, but also on his feelings. At the same time, both agree that intuition takes over.
- Adobe Stock
"Virtuosi" do not seek to start a relationship, cherishing their freedom, but not against common adventures. They get bored easily, but they love making new friends - extroverts fully cover their need for communication. ISTPs are most compatible with ESFJs and ESTJs. nine0003
Description: Poetic, kind and altruistic people, always ready to help.
The perfect couple: ENFJ and ENTJ
"Intermediaries" feel more than they understand, and they need the same intuitions. On the other hand, ENFJs and ENTJs balance them by starting to prepare for problems in advance.
- Adobe Stock
Perfectionists and rather cold people in life. They need someone more open, extroverted, but also someone who also relies on intuition and can nip problems in the bud.
"Scientists" rarely open up to anyone and generally do not like it when they climb into the soul. Intuitive extroverts will know when it's best to leave this type alone and when to help make a difficult decision.

The Myers-Briggs test is one of the most popular methods for determining personality type. It is used all over the world - including in government organizations. Such a test helps to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the individual in order to build competent relationships with others and increase one's potential. nine0003
However, before taking the test, you need to know the following about it:
None of the described types can suit you 100%. Because each of us has traits that take us beyond the average personality type.
The Myers-Briggs test helps solve many questions, but life is such an unpredictable thing that no psychologist can predict it.
Don't let testing (and any fortune-telling, horoscopes, etc.) rule your life. This test determines the type of personality, but does not dictate how and when you should act. nine0003
Every person has positive and negative character traits. Therefore, it cannot be said that some of the personality types below are good and some are bad.
Now get ready and answer honestly 🤗 For each question, you need to choose only one answer and write down the corresponding letter.
1. How do you recover when you feel that you have no more strength?
2. Which description best suits you?
I like to live in the moment, here and now, I have a very well developed sense of reality and I am focused on the details of what is happening — S
I love to dream, to invent something new. I live for future projects — N
3. When you have to make an important decision (to choose a university or break up with a guy), what guides you?
I try to think with my head. In such matters, logic is important - T
I am learning to listen to the heart. If you know how to listen to your emotions, then you make the right decisions - F
4. When you have something planned (for example, a friend’s birthday), you:
I think through the details in advance, I need a clear plan - J I prefer to navigate
- situations, in extreme conditions, my best ideas come to me - P
Find out your type by Myers-Briggs
Done? Now it's time to explain what these strange letters meant:
👉 If after reading you have a feeling that this type of personality does not suit you at all, then remember, perhaps when answering one of the questions, you did not know what to choose? Then come back to this question - and you will get a new combination. We are sure that everything will work out this time 🙃
ISTJ — inspector
Famous people: Queen Elizabeth, Natalie Portman
People of this personality type love order in everything and try to delve deeply into any, even the most insignificant issues. At the same time, they do not take anything for granted - they analyze any information, collect additional information. nine0003
They are able to see things realistically, so they only start work if they are sure they can finish what they started. You can rely on such people, but they prefer short contacts for the duration of the work.
ISFJ — defender
Famous people: Beyoncé, Kate Middleton, Selena Gomez
People of this type very clearly divide others into “us” and “them”, quickly recognizing falseness and pretense. For "their own" they are ready for a lot - and they will never ask for something in return. They can always stand up for these people, but they will not let themselves be offended either. nine0003
In general, they are good-natured "protectors" who are rarely aggressive. They analyze well, like order (but not fanatical), and draw inspiration from the people around them.
INFJ - advisor
Famous people: Nicole Kidman
Such a person is a real sensor of relationships between people. He not only perfectly feels other people's moods, but also easily determines their hidden talents, so he can become a good teacher. Seeing him as a support, others often turn to him for advice. nine0003
However, despite outward calmness and wisdom, human advisers are easily vulnerable, they can hardly endure aggression and (especially) lack of love.
INTJ - Inspirer
Famous people: Mark Zuckerberg, Michelle Obama
Inspirer people are not used to wasting time. They strive to improve everything they can, from projects to people. People of this type use atypical ideas, so most often their undertakings are crowned with success. nine0003
At the same time, they demonstrate independence in everything - thereby alienating the people around them with whom they already have a strained relationship (due to the introversion of inspirers).
ISTP — craftsman
Famous people: Olivia Wilde, Kristen Stewart
Such people are used to learning the world through sensations. They are excellent at working with their hands thanks to a technical mindset, while clearly observing all deadlines. They are not accustomed to throwing themselves into the pool with their heads - before making a decision, they wait a long time and analyze everything. Because of this secrecy, their final actions often seem unpredictable and strange to others. nine0003
ISFP - Composer
