Hi! I'm Cris, I'm 23 and I'm Spanish. I have an ENFP 2w3 personality. I've found this great community while I was learning through the Internet about the MBTI. It's so interesting! And it really helps me to understand myself and other people better.
I've found the Myers-Briggs personality types when I was looking for a personality test (I've always LOVED doing personality test, in general haha). I've found the 16 personality test and, the first time, I got an INFP. Then, I've discovered the MBTI thing and I started searching more and more about it. When I did the test again, I got an ENFP personality, and now it doesn't change anytime that I repeat the personality test. I was confused about it, because I really get overwhelmed when I spend too much time with other people, and I instantly need to be alone, to rest and to reflect. Also, I was bullied at school when I was 11 by a teacher and after that, by classmates, for almost 4 years. This awful experience really traumatized me about socializing for many years.
Nowadays, I'm totally recovered from the bullying experience (thanks to my really supportive family and friends, some therapy and researching). But, for years, I had suffered from anxiety and panic attacks. I though that I was just really shy and weird, when, I've never been as shy naturally; it was a really bad social anxiety. So, it's normal that I've developed some introverted habits to survive when I was so lonely, but I'm naturally extroverted. Now that I finally socialize naturally, I know that my post-traumatic experience have confused me about my introversion-extroversion.
On the other hand, I'm a only daughter and I've always had a wild imagination and I have a really absurd, sarcastic and goofy humor. Moreover, I'm hypersensitive, and I have a very deep and wide interior own world; I'm a very artistic and creative person. I think that's why I really thought that I was an INFP, but now i know I'm an ENFP, and I embrace that! Maybe I'm not THAT extroverted (maybe I'm an ambiverted?) but I'm a really really social person. I'm always thinking about other people, about trully connect with others, and about how can I use my skills to try to make the world a better place and help those who need it.
It felt really good to write a summary of some of my life experiences as an ENFP who overthinks all the time, haha.
I hope we can learn together here. This community looks amazing!
See you soon .
