Portrait of the Champion Idealist (Champion)- ENFP
Idealists (NFs) share the following core characteristics:
- Idealists are enthusiastic, they trust their intuition, yearn for romance, seek identity, prize meaningful relationships, and dream of attaining wisdom.
- Idealists like to see themselves as sensitive, loving, and authentic.
- Idealists make intense mates, close-bonding parents, and inspirational leaders.
- Idealists tend to be kind-hearted, trusting, metaphysical, and they are focused on personal journeys and human potentials.
They see life as an exciting drama, pregnant with possibilities for both good and evil, and they want to experience all the meaningful events and fascinating people in the world.
The most outgoing of the Idealists, Champions often can`t wait to tell others of their extraordinary experiences. Champions can be tireless in talking with others, like fountains that bubble and splash, spilling over their own words to get it all out. And usually this is not simple storytelling; Champions often speak (or write) in the hope of revealing some truth about human experience, or of motivating others with their powerful convictions. Their strong drive to speak out on issues and events, along with their boundless enthusiasm and natural talent with language, makes them the most vivacious and inspiring of all the types.
Fiercely individualistic, Champions strive toward a kind of personal authenticity, and this intention always to be themselves is usually quite attractive to others. At the same time, Champions have outstanding intuitive powers and can tell what is going on inside of others, reading hidden emotions and giving special significance to words or actions. In fact, Champions are constantly scanning the social environment, and no intriguing character or silent motive is likely to escape their attention. Far more than the other Idealists, Champions are keen and probing observers of the people around them, and are capable of intense concentration on another individual.
Their attention is rarely passive or casual. On the contrary, Champions tend to be extra sensitive and alert, always ready for emergencies, always on the lookout for what�s possible.
Champions are good with people and usually have a wide range of personal relationships. They are warm and full of energy with their friends. They are likeable and at ease with colleagues, and handle their employees or students with great skill. They are good in public and on the telephone, and are so spontaneous and dramatic that others love to be in their company.
Champions are positive, exuberant people, and often their confidence in the goodness of life and of human nature makes good things happen.
