NF Personality Types Help Empower Others - a Profile

The iNtuitive-Feeling, or NFs, of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) make up approximately 12 percent of the population. The NF type is one of four primary ways people differ from one another when defined by attitudes and actions. The life view of an NF temperament type (like me, for example) is that everyone has potential, and we desire each person's full potential be realized—including our own.
By our i(N)tuition we have our own take on people relationships, theories and future possibilities. We also like to have a plan ahead of time, while not in detail; putting that off until later.
(F)eeling means we are always looking to base our decisions on person-centered values and concerns because we want to create and keep the harmony. Some may think we have a good "gut sense" about people.
The four personality types with this temperament are ENFJ, ENFP, INFP and INFJ.
These types who love to empower others are also

  • introspective,
  • intuitive,
  • highly idealistic,
  • subjective,
  • imaginative,
  • creatively inclined, and
  • passionate about their choice causes.

Nurture own personal development

What is often said about the NF empowering-others type is that they have the goal of becoming. Or, they are on a "never-ending" search for themselves. This tendency may be more intense for the Introverted-NF, who tends to be more introspective than the Extraverted-NF.
However, as the NF type wanders through life and time seeking spiritual, psychological and physical "enhancement," this can be taken by others that the NF type is never truly happy. This emotional "search" can make them seem less reliable than, say, the ISTJ personality type. This search, though is simply an adventure they naturally like to embark on every once in a while to make sure they've not missed some personal improvements—within reason—they'd not thought of 

As an NF type, myself, I see it more in terms of a continual desire to realize my potential as a person, more and more fully. We NF types tend to work hard toward perfection in our work, and that work tends to be more focused on our inter-relationships.

Nurture personal development of others

The hunger for meaning of the Empowering-others NF type is centred
  1. not on things but people, and
  2. not on abstractions butrelationships, and
  3. finally, not on action but interaction.
What we often have on our mind is the question, "How can I improve myself and my relationships with others?"We invest heavily in our relationships.
Therefore, we desire to contribute goodness and meaning to the lives of others. As the NF empowering-others type we are effective at doing this through our natural abilities of 

  • nurturing,
  • insightful-ness, and
  • encouragement.
The alternative is what NFs despise; conflict! We do everything we can to make sure our loved ones get along well with each other and are happy.
This focus on inter-relationships, which may also include a significant cause, often make the NF empowering-others type natural leaders, as they enjoy actualising potential in others and themselves.
Ways we may seek to bring out the potential in others in times of change:
  • Focus on developmental opportunities for others, the atmosphere and the morale of each individual.
  • Ensure the change, whatever it may be, adds value and is meaningful to the people involved.
  • Support and encourage people as they move through the change.
  • Work with others to deal with negative affects of the change that they are experiencing.

Occupations that interest the NF empowering-others type

Some of the most creative people come from the NF strain of personality type, including
  • creative writers, and
  • artists.
At the same time, NFs also make up a big percentage of those entering
  • the ministry,
  • teaching,
  • psychology, and
  • counselling careers.
Just as I am interested in doing through this hub article, "The transmitting of ideas and attitudes tends to attract NFs," like me.
Myers explains that the following four of her 16 personality types focus on the same iNtuition-Feeling mental functions, while they differ from each other in their use of these functions.
