Nicknamed the protagonists, ENFJs are idealistic, inspiring, and amazing leaders. However, just like other MBTI types, no two ENFJs are the same. Here, we’ll look at the ENFJ 4w3.
So who is the ENFJ 4w3 and what can you expect from them?

How the 4w3 Changes the Natural Tendencies of the ENFJ
1. More Creative
ENFJs are creative. However, the presence of type 4 takes this to another level. Type 4s are known for their love for arts, creative thinking, and music.
They are also very creative. So, these traits are heightened for this personality type. They may find themselves drawn to music or something related throughout their lives.
2. More Introverted
ENFJs are extroverts. This means that they get energized when they interact with their external environment. ENFJ 4w3s are more introverted.
They won’t mind spending a lot of time alone and can be lost in their own world. It’s not surprising then that this personality type can be mistyped as an INFJ.
While they are more introverted, ENFJs are still extroverts. You can classify them as introverted extroverts.
3. More Warmth
Type 4s are the most introverted enneagram type. They are also among the top-ranked enneagram type for showing warmth. ENFJs are already hard-wired to show care for people. This just increases that urge.
They show more warmth to those that need it and are especially sympathetic to their loved ones. With this personality type, it’s just way easier to see their empathy in full display.
4. More Self-Aware
Type 4s usually are concerned with self-identity. They want to understand themselves more than any other type. This eventually makes them more self-aware of their flaws and strengths.
This trait is also evident in this personality type. They are more aware of what makes them tick. This allows them to use this to their benefit when it comes to career progression. Their ambitious wing, type 3 combines with this trait to devastating effect.
5. Better Listeners
ENFJ leads with extroverted feeling (Fe). This allows them to have a genuine interest in people and great conversations. When this combines with type 4’s love for unique conversation and type 3’s persuasive nature, you get an even better listener.
ENFJ 4w3s will listen to you to get to know you better, or simply because they are interested in what you have to say. They might also listen to you as a route to charming you or persuading you later on.
Regardless, their listening abilities are heightened.
6. More Independent
ENFJs are strong leaders with a lot of charisma. While this is true, they are not exactly the most independent. They often need a strong support system behind them. They are also prone to being people-pleasers. Not this ENFJ.
ENFJ 4w3s are more independent or lone wolves. Thus, the need to always make sure others are happy and inspired is less. They are more interested in their own journey.
New Weaknesses for the ENFJ 4w3
1. More Selfish/Self-Absorbed
One of the biggest problems of type 4 is being self-absorbed. That is fully present here. While this personality type can be caring and warm, they can also get really self-absorbed.
This simply means they tend to take themselves too seriously. They think their problems are the biggest and need to be solved first. They might also believe they are special or the world hates them.
However, it’s worth mentioning that this only happens when they are unhealthy.
2. More Sensitive
Type 4 is more emotional and sensitive to criticism. ENFJs are feelers. When this combines, you get someone who is very emotional. They might get a bit touchy when criticized and might even have angry outbursts.
However, if their wing is strong, their sensitivity might reduce. However, it will never go away.
ENFJs are idealists. They believe things should be how they ought to be. Thus, they often have very strong values. To get them to compromise on their values is just short of impossible.
This personality type will be stubborn and hard to dissuade. This can have several implications. It can hinder their growth as they might not be willing to correct their mistakes.
They might also begin to seem unreasonable to people who held them in high esteem.
4. Less Energy
ENFJs are extroverted. Thus, they have a lot of energy. This explains why they are able to meet up with all their many tasks.
However, this personality type will have less energy. This is probably because of their enneagram type. Because of this trait, ENFJ 4w3s will need to ration their energy to the things that matter the most.
5. Less Helpful/Generous
ENFJs are famous for being helpful. This personality type has those traits in them. However, this is to a lesser extent. ENFJ 4w3s will be more interested in being unique and independent.
Thus, they won’t also be readily available to help people. They might also not be extremely generous. This personality type is a bit different from your average ENFJ in this regard.
ENFJ 4w3 in the Workplace
ENFJs are great problem-solvers. They are also effective leaders who are great at management. ENFJ 4w3s are a bit different. While they are problem-solvers, they prefer creative jobs.
Just like other ENFJs, they are motivated to climb up the career ladder. They love a workplace that is harmonious and structured. This allows them to express themselves freely. While other ENFJs might prefer working in large groups, this personality type doesn’t mind working alone.
However, they also have no problems working with people if they are compatible. To get the best out of the ENFJ 4w3, make sure their role is creative and offers them a chance to grow.
