Here’s How Each Personality Type Behaves as a Host

INFJs are surprisingly good with people, even if they don’t personally believe so. They are often well-read and know how to community in a warm and welcoming tone. INFJs simply dislike having to hose an event, and will often feel like it is far too much pressure. If the INFJ were to host a party, they would be most likely to entertain a small gathering of people in a much more intimate setting. They dislike loud and over the top parties, and much prefer a more quiet setting. INFJs would much rather give people the options and allow them to do whatever they please. They want people to feel comfortable, not pressured.
ENFJs are excellent hosts, whether it be for parties or even larger events. They know just how to make everyone feel entertained, and will go above and beyond to ensure the entire group is happy.
