One Myers-Briggs® Celebrity ENFP Personality Type is the founder of The Walt Disney Company, Walt Disney.

Walt Disney and the work that he created personified the ENFP Type and his vision thrives to this day. The strengths and weaknesses of the MBTI Test ENFP Personality Type is what led to the unique identity of the Disney brand that so well reflected the MBTI Type of Walt Disney.

The ENFP Personality Type has a Feeling preference and is empathetic and compassionate. This leads individuals, like Walt Disney, to apply their personal values to their decision making process. Walt Disney was great at Identifying and empathizing with others and this mentality was projected into his work. His biggest physical creation, Disneyland, is known as, “The Happiest Place on Earth” and focuses on strong family values and a warm, friendly, environment for all to enjoy. (Myers, CPP. 1998)

The creation of Disneyland was also in part possible because of Walt Disney’s Intuition function which he used to orientate toward future possibilities. This staple of the Myers-Briggs® ENFP Personality Type is often associated with innovation. In addition to being a creative and imaginative innovator, Walt Disney also had an amazing level of energy that he directed into getting his projects underway. This allowed him to realize so many of the exciting possibilities that he would dream up. (Myers, CPP. 1998)

While the strengths of the ENFP Type brought the dreams of Walt Disney to life, the weaknesses of the ENFP Personality Type almost ruined him on numerous occasions. The ENFP Type emphasizes less on the logical Thinking function and fact-focused Sensing function. Walt Disney was a dreamer, but his dreams didn’t always fully take into consideration whether they would be financially realistic. Walt Disney’s first company Laugh-O-Gram-Studio failed when it’s profits could not cover the high salaries of it’s employees. In addition, numerous times in his lifetime, Walt Disney’s partners and employees jumped ship to rival companies. Not everyone was as value and morally focused as Walt Disney when making decisions. Fortunately, Walt Disney’s preferences also led him to take his biggest gamble, which would lay the foundation to his greatest successes. In 1934, Walt Disney started planning a full-length animated feature, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Everyone told Walt Disney that the plan was a financial disaster waiting to happen. It almost bankrupted the company, though fortunately it ended up being a giant success and jumpstarted what many called the Golden Age of animation. (Myers, CPP. 1998)

Throughout his life, Walt Disney was adaptable and could react spontaneously to issues as they arose. As a pioneer in mainstream animation, he had few established parameters to follow which suited his Perceiving preference just fine. Coupled with Walt Disney’s other preferences, this led to the creation of a creative environment that gave way to one of the most recognizable brands in the world. (Myers, CPP. 1998)
