ENFP personalities are likely to be creative, enthusiastic and warm parents. People with this personality type are known for their playfulness and their approach to parenting is a reflection of this – ENFP parents love watching their kids play, experiment and learn. ENFPs dislike environments that are too stable and predictable, and consequently are unlikely to try to create something like this for their children.
ENFP parents tend to be intensely emotional and observant – they will easily notice if their child is not feeling well, either physically or emotionally. However, this affection may also be somewhat overbearing and the ENFP’s children are likely to try to distance themselves from the ENFP a little bit, especially during the teenage years.
People with the ENFP personality type will be very dedicated parents, doing their best to be both their child’s best friend and a respected authority figure. ENFPs will also give their children plenty of freedom and teach them how to have fun without compromising their values and ideals.
