    I don't think you're gay. Just, colourful. jk

    gay - feeler, I fail to see the correlation.

I think life would be harder for the type of feeler that can't keep quiet. I've tested as istp a lot, that seems to be the kiwi male archetype overall. I don't think isfp have a hard time fitting in though. I did have to pull back some conditioning, conditioning I'd done to myself.
    ^it's stuff like that that makes me think i'm esfp

    my emotions aren't always pouring out or anything, but i don't keep them under the surface for too long. i can try, but it's like a damn scratch i have to itch. for better or worse.

    [edit] "Itch I have to scratch", I mean

    F != emotions, at least not in Jungian terms.

    Feeling is basically a way of making decisions that is not based on just the cold-hard facts and logic like Thinking does.

    appreciates being appreciated, conflicted over conflicts, afraid of being afraid, bad at being bad, predictably unpredictable, consistently inconsistent, remarkably unremarkable...

    I may not agree with what you are feeling, but I will defend to death your right to have a good cry over it

    Liking bright colors is dominant in gay culture, right? Also in women? That would mean also in feelers?

    It's got to be more than that...?

    If being ESFP meant merely being impulsive in my decisions, then it's a very limited way in describing the "Type". Emotional expression has to come to play here somewhere to distinguish some people???... else what's the point of any of this. F can't be all about values and convictions.

    One thing that I suppose is F in nature is I always have had an orientation to forming a relationship when doing something. That has had upsides and downsides depending on the nature of the job or whatever I was doing. It is difficult and feels dry and lifeless to just do something. If I am by myself it isn't an issue but if there are people around I am drawn to...not interact so much as collaborate maybe, to build a positive atmosphere.

    I can identify with that.

    Hell, I quit my last job because my manager told me I wasn't there for friends. I was like.. "Really?! Well fuck off then." The job itself sucked anyways.
