They are helpers, enablers, and most often, believe in their dreams. They are organized, especially when it comes to relationships. ENFJ’s tend to neglect themselves in order to help others and carry burdens that are too much to bear. They love harmony and are loyal and honest. This describes me perfectly. I love to help people and always put other’s needs before my own. I have to remind myself I am not Super-Woman, although I try to be. I am most definitely an extrovert. I gain great energy from being around others. I love to socialize and build relationships. I tend to believe a friend is a friend for life, although that is not always the case. The functional analysis explained, “Dominant feeling prefers to find the silver lining in even the most beggarly perceptions of those in their expanding circle of friends and, of course, in themselves”. I always try to find the good in every situation and believe there is great potential in every person to fulfill a profound purpose and do extraordinary things, especially when someone believes in them. Suggested career paths for ENFJ’s are psychologist, counselor, clergy, teacher, writer, manager, and human resources. All of these positions are interests that have had for many years. I teach Bible studies through my church and have had the desire to be a counselor since I was a teenager. I am thankful to have the opportunity to study psychology and …show more content…
They are terrific supervisors because they have the capacity to organize people. I am currently the Women’s Ministry Director and Children’s Ministry Director at my church. I act as the administrator as well, so organizing events and delegating to people is something that I am very used to. Tradition is a guiding force in ESTJ’s lives and allows them to enforce rules that are handed down to them. Tradition is extremely important to me. I make holidays and birthdays huge events for our family. It is all about making memories and I try to imagine how my children will view their childhood and what they will remember. I also like to use the same treadmill at the gym and park in the same parking place when I can. I like consistency, however, I also embrace change well. According to the ESTJ description, “...humor is frequently centered around something or someone being off center or behaving abnormally”. This describes my sense of humor well. I laugh at irony most frequently. ESTJ’s are loyal, hard-working, thorough, and dependable. They enjoy developing order and structure. Potential career paths for ESTJ’s are business administrators, financial officers and teachers. I have held positions in all of these fields. I started a new job this summer as office manager and administrator for Fleming Business Valuation and

    Even as children’s pastor, I could relate to many elements in this book. I especially liked how Willimon speaks about the pastor as the one who shapes his congregation by the messages he preaches. I can identify with this because this is what I am currently doing when I speak to the children at Grace. Children are at an age where they more easily shaped and influenced by what they see and hear and this makes me see the urgency in what I’m doing all the…
