I look up to other healthy ESFP's sometimes. Very inspiring to see what they are and how I could realistically be. I also look up to ENTJ's and all their abilities and thinking style.

I can't say that I look up to specific types. I do admire certain qualities in others that I lack naturally, though. Sometimes I wish I were more practical, more open with my feelings, more in the moment, more engaged with the world, etc. I could go on. I don't see one type as the embodiment of everything I want to be. I guess I just always wish I was more balanced. Or I want what I don't have.
I admire, and sometimes wish for, qualities in others that I lack (or at the least, aren't strong in), but I wouldn't really say that there's much of a link to type. And as easy as it is to think "I wish I could be as outgoing as X", at the same time I see "but then I would be spending more time doing <things I can't stand>, so ugh".
If I had to pick a type that I look up to it, might be ISTP or INTP.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
Definitely INTJs, I admire their tenacity, their foresight, their intelligence, discipline and their wonderful, soft core (if ENTPs are chocolate-covered gravel, then INTJs are gravel-covered chocolate). I have much in common with the ones I know (a hunger for knowledge, an appreciation for the arts, strongly held values...) and yet, plenty that I can learn from them (and, I think, one or two things they can glean from me). If I ever open that coffee-shop I've been dreaming about, an INTJ would make the perfect business partner.
