15 Songs That Capture The Spirit Of Being An ENFP

  • 0
ENFPs are the zany, restless dreamers of the Myers-Briggs world. Making up a whopping 8% of the population, this type harnesses their energy from pursuing new ideas and inspiring those around them. Here are a few songs that perfectly capture the essence of what it means to be an ENFP:

ENFP having an Identity Crisis | Grace Kelly – Mika

ENFPs see possibilities everywhere, even within their own personalities. Like Mika, every ENFP knows the feeling of envisioning various versions of their best self and going a wee bit “Identity mad.”

ENFP asserting their independence | Billy Joel – My Life

ENFPs are fiercely individualistic. This type knows what they want out of their own lives and they aren’t interested in arguing with anyone who disagrees.

ENFP resisting growing up | Anna Sun – Walk the Moon

Let’s see – three minutes spent dancing around a dilapidated building asserting that a good heart makes up for a lack of shelter/money, and then a paint war amongst a group of adults who are having vivid flashbacks of their childhood – sounds like a classic case of the ENFP Peter Pan syndrome to me.

ENFP encouraging a friend | Nico Vega
 – I Believe (Get Over Yourself)

ENFPs are the most optimistic of any type – they fiercely believe in the possibility of better things for both themselves and the people they love. They live to inspire others through their unwavering confidence that the best is always yet to come.

ENFP looking to turn things around for themselves | The Bleachers – I Wanna Get Better

Self-improvement is the backbone of any ENFP. Though their proneness to distraction may occasionally lead them down the wrong path, they are always keen to get back on the right one – and they will fight their way there through any means necessary.

ENFP taking a chance on love | Air Traffic Controller – You Know Me

“This could be a rollercoaster/But we’re going to make the most of it” might as well be the entire ENFP motto.

ENFP getting lost in analysis | Lost In My Mind – The Head And The Heart

Though their primary focus is external, every ENFP experiences a vivid inner world that occasionally sucks them in. This type is prone to over-analysis, which can sometimes cause them to feel disconnected from the world around them.

ENFP seeking stimulation | Third Eye Blind – Semi-Charmed Life

ENFPs always want more out of life – more stimulation, more excitement, more meaning. No matter how great things get, they are always going to be on the search for a little something else.

ENFP working on their latest project | Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now

An ENFP working on a new project is the definition of “Inspired.” This intensely determined type will stop at nothing to achieve what they want – and the high they get from pursuing their goals is unmatchable.

Two ENFPs getting together | Walk the Moon – 
Shut Up and Dance With Me

Every time two ENFPs meet, the Universe explodes a little. Although this high-energy type needs a more grounded personality to balance them out long-term, the chemistry between ENFPs when they first meet is undeniable – and a little bit out of this world.

ENFP in love | 
Hall & Oates – You Make My Dreams Come True

ENFPs spend a lot of time day–dreaming and when they fall in love it feels like all of those daydreams are coming true. Like Tom from 500 days of Summer, an ENFP in love may as well have a marching band following them around everywhere they go.

ENFP bouncing back from a failure | Chumbawamba – Tubthumping

ENFPs are nothing if not resilient. After a brief period of sulking, this type bounces back from failure with confidence, enthusiasm and the eternal willingness to try again.

ENFP planning for the future | Ellie Goulding – Anything Could Happen

ENFPs are compulsive planners but at the end of the day they prefer keeping their options as open as possible. A perfect future for the ENFP is one where absolutely anything could happen.

ENFP reflecting on their life | One Republic – I Lived

Every ENFP’s dying wish is to know that they squeezed every last bit of life that they could from their years. They want to know that they have seen, done and felt it all.

And, of course, the ENFP Anthem | Queen – We Are The Champions

We are, after all, known as the Champions in the Myers-Briggs world. TC mark
