I'm also an ENFP on the Meyers Briggs. If you know about that personality test, it is pretty accurate and helpful. ENFP's are really smart, creative and excellent problem solvers but can't make decisions, and seem to be are good or interested in a lot of things.

A healthy way to think about it from an employer's perspective is that you get paid based on what you have done, not what you could do. So focus on making great work that demonstrably shows what you are cable of beyond a shadow of a doubt.

I do! People ask me all the time, "What is your passion?" I never know what to say. Today I made a list of things I'm passionate about and came up with about 30 pretty broad things from across the board. I had a problem choosing a major in college. I ended up changing it 4 times to only decide on something that was really broad. Now I'm working but I struggle with the fact that I feel like I'm not doing what I was made to do.
I have a lot of talents and I have a hard time figuring out what I should focus on to be better at. I'm trying to move my career forward but I want to focus on bettering my skills in one area but I can't choose.
Does anyone else have this problem?
I heard a Ted Talk about this topic. Apparently we are called Multi-potentialities. People who are good at a lot of different things.

My question to you is: Do you know what your passion is? How are you living it out? Also, if you are a fellow ENFPer, how do you overcome the difficulty of being good at a lot of things?
I can't wait to hear your insight!
