Colorado College has been named one of the best small colleges for ENFP (Extraversion, Intuition, Feeling and Perception) personality types in recent rankings by Degree Match.

The private, liberal arts school in Colorado Springs ranked 5th, with comments highlighting CC’s unique block schedule, in which students take only one class in 3½ weeks increments throughout the academic year.

The individual with a ENFP personality is referred to as “the campaigner” and is considered a diplomat on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Test, the most common personality measure in the United States.

Schools were selected for ranking based on criteria such as student-to-faculty ratio, cost of attendance, number of ENFP areas of study offered, accreditation and acknowledgement by a national ranking body.

Degree Match provides researched rankings and other information about the nation’s colleges and universities.

CC also ranked sixth on the Huffington Post’s 2012 list of Most Free-Spirited Colleges and sixth "Colleges for a Free Spirit" by College Express, indicating a campus with students who consider themselves to be unconventional, eccentric or funky.

Last year, Forbes magazine ranked CC as third “Most Entrepreneurial College in America,” highlighting its Innovation Institute as a key factor.
