The ENFJ personality type is very focused on people, and one thing that really drives them is bringing out the best in others. They’re excellent listeners, and they’re also great at pulling out others’ hidden potential, and supporting their personal growth.
People of the ENFJ type are known to be quite persuasive. But their motives are almost always altruistic. They have little interest in manipulative tactics and, in fact, often go out of their way to support and encourage others. This on-the-fly revision may be a bit tricky at first, but start trying it out today! You’ll be glad you did.
ENFJs are so focused on the needs of others that they sometimes neglect themselves. This can be hard for them, as they have a strong sense of self and personality. There is a very visible difference between ENFJ personalities and ENTJ personalities. Rather than read about it, you can see it with your own eyes Anime Characters Personality Types!
1/22. Osono (Kiki’s Delivery Service)
The story begins with a 13-year-old-girl named Kiki. It’s her birthday, and she’s about to begin her life as a young witch. Kiki is the new girl in town, where she must try to fit in at school and quickly establish herself as the best witch of all time. She has a rival for that title awaiting her at the same place—the mysterious Ursula.
Kiki can’t believe her luck — she’s been invited to stay with the woman who she’d just helped. She had no idea that Osono was the owner of the bakery, and that she was pregnant! Osono is a true ENFJ anime character — an extroverted, emotionally-sensitive and friendly individual.
2/22. Himawari Uzumaki (Boruto: Naruto Next Generations)
She appears to be very calm and kind, often offering sunflowers to Nenjile. She is also described as being similar to her brother in terms of personality, although she has a much lower tolerance for shenanigans than he does. Despite that, she seems to love her older brother very much.
Upon seeing her own father hurt and in pain, at first Boruto was afraid. But then, the Boruto saw how strong and brave her sister had become, even if she was angry. “Oh, so that’s what a true ninja is supposed to be like,” thought Boruto while watching her sister in awe.
3/22. Kiyoshi Teppei (Kuroko no Basket)
Teppei Kiyoshi (木 吉 鉄 平), the founder of the Seirin basketball team and its former star player, is widely recognized by his nickname “Iron Heart”, which is a reference to the determination that he puts into building his team. Against common belief, Teppei isn’t stupid, despite his appearance. He’s actually very smart and often finds himself up to something.
Cheerful, honest and mischievous, Kiyoshi is the epitome of a strong team player. He founded Karasuno to create a place where people who like volleyball can come together, and he believes every team needs to feel comfortable in their own environment to grow. Kiyoshi’s playful spirit and love of volleyball touch the lives and hearts of all he meets, even those he’d rather not admit it to.
4/22. Daichi Sawamura (Haikyuu!!)
Daichi is the captain of Karasuno High School’s volleyball team. He’s a friendly and sociable guy, and one of his best characteristics is that he knows when to take charge of things and when he has to put an order. He’s also responsible, generous, patient, and feared by his enemies. Overall, Daichi is a great captain for the team, and is respected by all the members.
5/22. Mizugaki Tsukasa (Plastic Memories)
Tsukasa Mizugaki is a lovable, enigmatic character from Plastic Memories. As an ENFJ Anime character, you’d expect him to be cheery and sociable — and you’d be right. Tsukasa is fun, but he’s also a little quiet, just like the real ENFJ Anime characters who clearly have so much more depth than we give them credit for.
If there’s one trait that defines Subaru, it’s his constant need to help others. He’s always in a good mood, and can often make those around him smile, even under the most depressed of circumstances. He takes care to emotionally support the people around him, even if he isn’t particularly close with them. He’s got a smile that can light up a room!
6/22. Shouta Kazehaya (Kimi Ni Todoke)
Kazehaya is a kind, respectful and cheerful guy! He can be a bit clingy, but he’s just looking out for Sawako! That’s why he wants to show her that friends are important, especially when you’re in high school. It’s rough, but having friends at school really does make all the difference in the world — and you’ll never have to walk alone if you have them with you!
Kazehaya is the easiest character to relate to, as he is our narrator and main protagonist. He’s an average high schooler who worries a lot. He has a crush on his best friend, Sawako, but would never tell her because he thinks it’ll ruin their friendship. Their relationship is complicated, but that just makes them even better together!
7/22. Emma (The Promised Wonderland)
Emma is the main character of the hit manga and anime “Yakusoku no Neverland” (約束のネバーランド), written by Kaiu Shirai and illustrated by Demizu Posuka. 11-year-old Emma is the oldest child in the orphanage and is loved by her younger friends. She gets excellent grades, alongside Ray and Norman, her best friends, thanks to her many skills.
Emma is a typical ENFJ anime character who, while having an energetic personality, also possesses characteristics that make her enjoyable to be around, such as her enthusiasm and warmth. She loves her brothers and often takes on the older sister role in their relationship — although this has more to do with the fact that she is quite outgoing and personality-driven than it does with age.
8/22. Hashirama Senju (Naruto Shippuden)
Naruto is a member and leader of the Senju Clan, a famous ninja clan with a Kekkei Genkai that lets him use ‘The First’s Power’. This made him one of the main founders of the Hidden Leaf Village — and it also makes him a mighty ally worth having in your back pocket. Especially if you’ve got your eye on his friend Kurama, before anyone else does!
The Will of Fire is a famous teaching within the Konoha Military Police Force, started by the Third Hokage. It’s principles were passed on to Hiruzen Sarutobi, and this concept is what molded him into the Hokage that he would become. The Will of Fire is an inspiring and powerful guiding principle, as it reminds its people of the loyalty and protection they owe to one another.
9/22. Zeniba (Spirited Away)
Zeniba is the twin who, at first appears as a rival, but reveals her true personality: sweet and caring. Once she realizes that Haku has stolen something, she loses her temper and goes after him with a cleaver. Luckily, Chihiro makes it to Zeniba’s hut to apologize before anything happens to him. Zeniba forgives them both and gives them the magic seal.
10/22. Arata Kaizaki (ReLIFE)
Arata Kaizaki is the main protagonist of ReLife, a tale that follows his experiences as he uses a revolutionary new product called ReLIFE. Kaizaki sees no reason to be concerned when he finds himself suddenly transported back in time to his last year of high school, but there is forward momentum in his life now and his focus is on landing a job as soon as possible.
When Kaizaki was in his first job as a legal trainee at a law office, he defended a co-worker who was relentlessly harassed by her boss. Unfortunately, this led to the suicide of said boss and the entire office decided that it wasn’t enough reason for them to change their ways. That’s when Kaizaki decided he’d had enough — saying “I don’t want to become an adult like you” — and left his job.
11/22. Asuna Yuuki (Sword Art Online)
Asuna is a main character in Sword Art Online, which is a popular anime/manga series that tells the story of 10,000 players who are trapped in its world. In the real world, Asuna Yuuki’s name has become synonymous with awesomeness — just like this bracelet!
Asuna, who was initially only interested in getting out of the game and leaving the others behind, changed drastically after meeting Kirito. Before meeting him, all Asuna wanted was to get out of the game, no matter what happened to the others; her attitude was that she should advance as fast as possible in the game, find a way to escape and then leave without thinking about anyone else.
12/22. Yaegashi Taichi (Kokoro Connect)
He’s an ambitious high schooler with a passion for fiction and a flair for the dramatic. He doesn’t know how to react when he learns the ‘girl next door’ he’s been secretly crushing on wants him to join her in starting a new club. Luckily, the girl in question is shy herself and isn’t exactly sure what she wants their new club to be.
13/22. Jack Vessalius (Pandora Heart)
Jack in the Box’s personality is very… odd. He seems like a nice guy, smiling at everyone and looking happy all the time, but he’s actually a devious manipulator. Jack himself, however, is not aware of his own complex character — he’s just a simple boy who likes to smile.
Jack is a man of many talents, who will often stare into your soul with the sheer power of his eyes. However, he does harbor some resentment against his family because of how they neglected him during his childhood. He doesn’t let this show in front of other people, though, as he feels that it would be a sign of weakness on his part.
14/22. All Might (Boku No Hero Academia)
All Might is the best hero I have ever seen. His personality and his willingness to help others makes you forget that he’s actually a middle-aged man with a busted physique. You could say he symbolizes justice, but he doesn’t want people to worship him for it like some sort of God (which I think is a good thing). He’s always willing to protect everybody no matter what – that’s definitely something everyone can respect.
15/22. Iroh from Avatar: The Last Airbender
ENFJs like Uncle Iroh are wise and seasoned individuals who never give up on people who mean much to them. Their strategic nature shows their proficient use of Introverted Intuition, and their relentless focus on people, family, and life reflects a powerful but not overbearing approach.
16/22. Tanjiro Kamado from Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer)
Tanjiro is a demon slayer who will do anything to protect his sister, even if it means sacrificing himself — which he nearly does when he ends up stuck in the past by an evil force that wants to keep him there. He is kind and selfless, but he has a lot of inner turmoil, which makes him an interesting character.
Tanjiro is a very suited for the job of demon hunting; his empathy, patience, and respect for others are definitely going to come in handy when talking to the demons of the underworld. Tanjiro’s powerful intuition is also evident in his ability to see past roadblocks (even of the delicate social variety) while fighting for his vision.
17/22. Toru Oikawa (Haikyuu!!)
ENFJ and their passion for volleyball. When looking at the ENFJ mind, it really makes sense that they are drawn to such a strenuous sport. If you look at the extroverted feeling function, along with their dominant extroverted intuitions, it becomes quite clear that volleyball is an ideal sport with which to engage one’s passion.
Oikawa has a knack for getting inside other people’s heads and understanding them better than they understand themselves. He can use this to motivate and inspire his team, and he’s also great at predicting what others will do (and where they’ll go wrong) – but sometimes this backfires on him because he assumes that other people are just as good at reading people as he is!
18/22. Marco Bodt (Attack on Titan)
Marco Bodt is an ambitious individual who was born to make a difference in the world. Enlisting in the Federation Naval Corps at the age of sixteen and inspired by his older brother’s heroic death, Bodt has always had his eye set on a goal bigger than himself. While many are intimidated by Bodt’s strong presence, many also recognize that he has their best interests at heart, even if he does not have time for idle chitchat.
His ability to understand people makes him an excellent peacemaker – but not just any peacemaker, a military ENFJ. Bodt is the type of leader who could lead you into battle and keep your squad in line, even in the face of death.
19/22. Jonathan Joestar (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure)
As a child, Jonathan Joestar had a tendency for being accidentally violent that resulted in his initial dislike of fighting. But this was also something that made him far more perceptive to the feelings and motives of others. This, paired with an acute strategic mind, led to him naturally getting involved in the world around him. Even as he’s older, Jonathan has retained the values he had as a child — including his remarkable ability to never stay down.
20/22. Kanae Kocho (Demon Slayer)
Kanao Tsuyuri is a child who’s been abused by his father. He eventually befriends Kocho and becomes a crucial part of Demon Slayer. In the end, he saves the entire world by becoming a key character in Demon Slayer. Unlike Tanjiro (who’s also played by an ENFJ), Kocho hopes that humans and demons can someday live together in harmony.
21/22. Maes Hughes (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Maes Hughes is the perfect friend. He’s kind, he’s thoughtful, and he’ll go to extreme lengths to help a friend in need. He never misses an opportunity to take care of his loved ones, writing letters to his family only minutes after returning from fighting in the Ishbal War as well as making dinner for Hughes’ fiancée Gracia and her son Roy — all before 7 PM (
22/22. Mirio Togata “LeMillion” (My Hero Academia)
ENFJs are powerful individuals who live to inspire others. They push the boundaries with their imagination and creativity, and do whatever it takes to succeed in life. One of the most admirable ENFJs is Mirio Togata from My Hero Academia (another ENFJ from another anime that’s worth watching!).
