Broaching the subject of overprotection/smothering will need to be done delicately and in a manner that lets the ENFJ know that he or she isn’t a bad person or companion – just a little overzealous in the Care Department.

ENFJs will try to fulfil their role as a partner/spouse/parent to the best of their ability and generally make good parents.

This is one of the less common Myers-Briggs personalities, accounting for an estimated two percent of the population.

Most ENFJs will overlook their own needs in lieu of seeing to the needs of others.

This is usually done without a thought, although some individuals will elect to ignore their own desires, even some of the most basic ones.

Although prone to being overprotective, “givers” are very affectionate parents who want to see their children well-adjusted.

Their own extravert nature may cause them to push their child into social activities such as play dates, sports, or after-school programs from a young age.

If left unchecked this kind of behavior will push away the “giver’s” partner and inevitably destroy the relationship.

This isn’t an easy task for a partner to take on, however, as ENFJs tend to be sensitive and will take criticism very seriously.

The chameleon-like ability can be a wonderful tool when used to speak to a crowd of people, but even without the use of this ability the “giver” is a very charismatic and passionate speaker who has the ability to mesmerize others.

“Givers” would do well in a leadership role such as a teacher, motivational speaker, or even a politician. They have a welcoming nature that makes them very approachable and trustworthy.

A companion would need to be bold and speak up when their ENFJ partner becomes overprotective or oppressive.
