Denzel Washington ENFJ Personality Type


Denzel Washington, I don’t know anyone that doesn’t like Denzel. From the days of “Glory”, “Ricochet” and “Crimson Tide” to “The book of Eli” and “Equalizer” – Denzel has displayed a 360 view of what an ENFJ is like, but in Denzel’s body. Now I’ve heard sources say ENTJ, ENTP, INFJ, with ISTJ being the most popular vote. Really? No. Denzel does not have Fi / Ne, he has Fe / Ni. Nuff said.

ENFJ’s are versatile and sometimes I feel like an ENFJ’s is good amount of other personality types smashed into one. I just don’t see ENTJ and ENTP in Denzel, and definitely not INFJ.

Extraverted feeling is Denzel’s dominant function and many people take the feeling part in the wrong way. Extraverted feeling is what give Denzel the ability to make decisions based on the external world. This is why a lot of ENFJ’s do so well with connecting with people – it gives them the advantage on almost playing field – communication being an essential element in our society.

The photo used for this post was completely intentional – it’s a shot of Denzel making some sort of facial expression. Let me tell you, this is a facial expression most ENFJ’s have, it’s a frequent one and confidently expressed. It’s no surprise ENFJ’s do well in Hollywood – the profession of an actor. Denzel’s extraverted feeling function more specifically gives him the ability to give the audience exactly what they want.
