  1. 1. WHO AM I AS A LEARNER? An Inspection of Self by Ryan Neufeld Tuesday, March 10, 2009
  2. 2. EVERYTHING I NEEDED TO KNOW, I LEARNED IN KINDERGARTEN “Disturbs others in class...” That was the running theme of my report cards from Kindergarten through university. I have always been too loud for my own good, but now I know that it wasn’t just because I was a rude student, or because I suffered from some condition. I disturbed others for the same reason I like family gatherings, and parties, and sharing ideas in class. I am an ENFP. Tuesday, March 10, 2009
  3. 3. ENF... WHAT? What exactly is an ENFP? It is an organizational acronym for the Myers-Briquot;s personality test. It is a tool that a#ows you to see the strengths and preferences of your personality and even provides you suquot;estions and input for possible occupations. Tuesday, March 10, 2009
  4. 4. E IS FOR EXTROVERTED “E” or “I” ... the first distinguishing feature of the test is your Introverted or Extroverted tendencies. I am way to the “E” side of the spectrum, which means I focus on the world outside. I enjoy social interactions and tend to be enthusiastic, verbal, assertive, and animated. I enjoy time spent with people and find myself energized by social interaction. Tuesday, March 10, 2009
  5. 5. “N” IS FOR INTUITION N or S... the second defining feature is the way we collect information from the world. Intuitive people tend to go with their gut feelings about things, and Sensing people use the facts around them to decide what’s happening. As an “N” I tend to focus on the future and the possibilities by reading between the lines. Tuesday, March 10, 2009
  6. 6. “F” IS FOR FEELING F or T ... what could I be? These letters represent a decision making process. Feelers take the data of the world and make decisions based heavily on how they feel about something. They use their principles and values. Thinkers tend to use logic to create an answer they see as fitting for the situation. Tuesday, March 10, 2009
  7. 7. “P” IS PERCEIVING Perceiving or Judging is the final category of distinction. It determines how we go about achieving our decisions. Perceivers tend to take it all in an adapt their plans to any situation. Judgers usually formulate a clear plan and work to complete it despite the changing obstacles. Tuesday, March 10, 2009
  8. 8. WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN? So what does it all mean? There are sixteen different personality types in the Myers-Briggs system, each with their own unique qualities. ENFP is a combination often found in kids who “disturb” others and a summary reads like this... Tuesday, March 10, 2009

ENFPs are natural advocates, attracting people to themselves and their cause with excellent people skills, warmth, energy and positivity.
