How ENFJs can irritate others
Each personality type can potentially irritate other people in their own particular way.
How ENFJs might irritate others
The potential ways in which an ENFJ can irritate others include talking too much and assuming to know the needs of others. In trying to help others develop insight, you may appear as both bossy and also as avoiding conflict (e.g.: not giving criticism when it is needed). You may also tend to take criticism personally, focusing so much on interpersonal issues that impersonal or business issues (such as cost or performance management) are not adequately addressed.
How to improve relationships
You can overcome personality type differences by learning about your similarities and differences with other people. This leads to greater understanding, appreciation, and respect. Also, if you learn to adapt your style this will make you more influential and respected.
There is a comprehensive guide on how to do this in the book Influencing People Using Myers Briggs. This is available as an option when you complete the personality test.
