This question comes from Jen.
“I’m a ENFP but my boss is not. She seems put off by my enthusiasm and general personality. I’ve tried to tone myself down in her presence and I think it may be helping a little. What others suggestions might you have to make a positive working relationship?”
ENFPs may feel that they need to take on a different persona at work, or to tone down their natural exuberance in workplaces that are structured, quiet, and impersonal. If you can relate, Edythe has some strategies that may help.
