ENFP: The Expressive Type – A Champion For Societal Change

In addition to being curious about the world around them, ENFPs are enthusiastic about exploring the deeper meanings of life. They abhor superficiality, and prefer to seek authentic experiences. Your pursuit of individuality and happiness is often your highest priority in life, both for yourself and for others.

Your primary trait, (the trait you use most often) is extroverted intuition. From a spiritual POV I call this your north star. It’s an abstract trait, free-thinking, which feeds the need for individuality. A personality tell, as to why personal freedom and self-expression are highly coveted. A trait that is instinctual and spontaneous. It gifts you the ability to follow your inspiration wherever it may lead, which for you, is often an unconventional one, that often inspires societal change.

 

ENFPs: Champions of Change

“You are embolden world optimists and ambassadors of social change.” A quote from Chapter 17, The Expressive Traveler from my debut book; Unpack Your Personality: Let Your Inner Guide Be Your Travel Guide. 

Looking back on history, ENTP women often break the rules of their own culture by redefining social norms. Women of your personality bend history around them. Real change in society often begins with you alone. Ponder the power in that statement. Historically, your personality carries seeds of growth for society. A few examples:

Anne Frank, a German-born Jewish girl who kept a diary, which documented her life in hiding under Nazi persecution. She’s a true hero

Dr. Seuss, U.S. children’s book author of The Cat in the Hat; How the Grinch Stole Christmas! A man that, still today, brings magic and joy to the world.

Carrie Fisher, an actor, whose kick-ass performance as Star Wars’ Princess Leia, illustrates the defining strength of an ENTP; their willingness to get it done against all odds. Bet you didn’t know that Fisher was hired by George Lucas to perfect scripts for his 1992 TV series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles and the dialogue for the Star Wars prequel. Breaking convention is innate in this personality type.

 

A Question Inspired Jane Fortune To Champion Forgotten Women Artists

Jane Fortune, a  lifelong philanthropist, began to  wonder, where are the women, while on an artist’s tour in Florence, Italy. She wanted to know why women were only depicted in paintings and not as artists.

In 2006, one year after her tour, she sponsored the restoration of 16th-century Dominican nun Plautilla Nelli’s “Lamentation with Saints,” an extremely large fresco painting that, pre-conservation, was lusterless, dirt-caked, and infested with woodworms. Three years later, she officially launched the non-profit Advancing Women Artists (AWA). The goal of AWA was to identify, restore, and exhibit works by Florence’s female artists.

Smithsonian Magazine quoted; Lovingly dubbed as the Indiana Jane by the Florentine press. Fortune not only championed the cause of Italy’s forgotten artists, but that of female artists around the world.” 

Fortune passed away at the age of 76 due to ovarian cancer. Without fanfare, her successor, Jane Adams, an ENTP, has taken on her mission. Adams continues this important work in Florence, and worldwide. She is the founder and CEO of Artemisia Gold, an expanding charity that continues the work of Jane Fortune.

A few questions to ponder and get you thinking  if you’re an entrepreneur who desires a career with meaning, passion and purpose.

  1. What was the turning point? The wake-up call that led you to where you are today? 

It was the day I met Jane Fortune. She changed my life. As she introduced me to the unheard stories of Florence’s female arts, I was stirred by her passion for these female arts. She shared the secret and the hidden side of Renaissance Florence. My love of art and the groundbreaking works of women artists had to be shared with the world. Their stories and work need a voice.

  1. How did this discovery shift your business and life?

I became a raving fan and advocate. Deep in my heart, I knew her foundation was where I belonged, and that’s exactly what happened. Sadly, the passing of Jane Fortune prompted the closure of her foundation, Advancing Women Artists. Yet, her quest lives on through me. I will carry on our joint mission to discover and restore hidden female artists. Her passion has become my passion. I continue to share the stories of women artists and bring their work back to life. 

  1. Can you describe what it felt like doing business before and after you became self-aware? 

Self-awareness is not just enlightenment. You have to work hard and fully believe in your mission and dream. And for me, I trust and know in my heart that the Divine plan always finds a way to bring things together…

  1. For the most part, being an entrepreneur isn’t always easy. What do you do to keep yourself centered and true to yourself, even when the pressure is on? 

I try to have a balance between work and time with friends, and participate in sports as a way to relax and let off steam.

  1. Is there anything you believe is instrumental in your journey of authenticity? In business and life? 

I have faith and a positive outlook on life. I’ve also been fortunate to be given a special and meaningful mission. I believe the Universe will guide me to bring my work to the world’s stage, no matter how big or small. It’s a mission, one that I’m happy to call my own. Bringing light and championing forgotten women artists is a privilege. Thank you Jane Fortune for lighting the torch.

Thank you Jane Adams for championing this vital work…

Remember, your spiritually guided self, impact and influences your personality; just like it influences your approach to life; relationships, career, travel…
