I'm sure you do the same in your field of expertise. For example, do you try to correct the logic of F types? Because in my book that would be being a control freak.

    Ooooohh *wince*

    I agree with you, not just in theory but because this was my experience with an ESFJ coworker awhile back.

    We worked closely with each other a few years and build an odd friendship -- I was good at thinking and framing and creativity and understanding things, she was good at relating to others and getting things accomplished and being an active force in any situation. Her strengths were my weaknesses, and vice versa -- and we confused each other at first because neither of us could understand why the other one would do something a certain way.

    We actually discussed all that, in snippets and chunks, as our friendship grew, and informally "took each other under wing." She would ask me questions when she was afraid she was getting off-course, getting my insights on a particular situation; meanwhile, she would give ME advice when she saw I was not being assertive, or letting people take advantage of me, or perhaps where I could have handled a social situation in a more positive way. We both benefited a lot from that friendship.

    I like how ENFJs are manipulative and ESFJs are loving and caring .

    But are ENFJs manipulative because they are trying to get you to what they think would be best for you out of a near-smothering desire to care for you?

    Hmm, somehow I find it amusing to take 4 words to describe a type, tone then down to three, yet use 2/3 of the same words for different types. I don't know why... but it seems rather funny.

    Mine?

    That was a nice touch.

    To be honest, ESFJs sometimes aren't that manipulative -- they'll just mow you down directly, no pretense involved, leaving you wondering what the heck happened.

    I am not sure but I would like to hear more! I find it interesting too that if you are going to have 3 words to describe a type,that the very first one you list is a negative.

    Extroverted Judgment functions have control-freak tendencies. ENFJs can avoid it because they can see the big picture more clearly.

    INTP- geek, nerd, no social skills
    ENTP- futile visionary, no social skills
    INTJ- stubborn, correct, efficient
    INFJ- stubborn, empathic, righteous
    INFP- elitist, conceited, self-centered
    ENFP- visionary, fun, dumb
    ENTJ- practical, efficient, sarcastic
    ENFJ- manipulative, social, emotive
    ISTJ- reliable, dependent, logical
    ESTJ- practical, efficient, sarcastic
    ESTP- laid back, slacker, manual labor
    ISTP- laid back, engineer, no social skills
    ISFP- laid back, fun, understanding
    ESFP- fun, dumb, invasive
    ISFJ- hard working, reliable, righteous
    ESFJ- loving, caring, understanding
    Nearly all of these are personality traits just like control freak is.

    It's hard for me to do types if I don't know anyone from that type, so I'm going to do types with people that I know.

    INTP- random, sarcastic, philosophical
    ENTP- idealistc, critical, talkative
    INTJ- mastermind, planned, theoritical
    INFJ- shy, compassionate, stubborn
    INFP- least practical, reserved, kind
    ENFP- fun, carefree, vague
    ENFJ- social, idealistic, caring
    ISTJ- timely, somewhat strict, proper
    ESTJ- critical, boss-like, structured
    ISFP-sweet, reserved, random
    ESFP-sociable, present-day oriented, carefree
    ISFJ- duty-fufiller, helpeful, sensitve
    ESFJ- caring, helpful, reliable
