    I just realized that my ESTJ sister is incredibly stubborn, but I know how to crack her code/shell to make her see the light.

    xSFJs are pretty stubborn. it's hard to prove a point or worse teach them something.

    soooooooooooo slow.....

    so they just refuse to understand it.

    For me, ESTPs can easily crack my unwavering stance, because they have a knack for finding a better way of doing what I intended to do. And INFPs -- they always patiently remind me to add the "human" factor into my decisions.

    Well when you put it like that, it's usually the secondary function that has its limits. Such as "No this is what this is used for, you can't do it like this. I'm not inclined to do it that way," like how INxJs might insist that things go according to the likely plan, and not all of the alternatives they can think up. They're still learning how to cope with the world and protecting their secondary function because its kind of a weakness compared to the primary function. I see the primary function in someone as more evident to their lifestyle, as though one is oblivious to how they think, rather than making a conscious decision to enforce one's ideas to fit into their lifestyle. An S function for instance, fits better in the P lifestyle than the J lifestyle. So ISFJ might have a hard time trying to adapt and acquiesce to sudden changes in plan even though they want to in the long run. I see this generally differently for ESFJs, even though they are generally polite about it.

    In my experience SFJs will be pretty quick to acquiesce on the surface, but they never actually change their opinion, and when you aren't looking they continue on merrily as though the exchange never happened.

    My mother is an ESFJ, and she often times cannot be reasoned with.

    So, instead I appeal to her emotions, and voila, CaptainChick gets her way!

    I can only draw from experience, so my vote is based on my personal experience, instead of what I theoretically would think to be stubborn.

    I voted ENTP, with special leanings toward younger ENTPs..

    And the problem is... I still don't know how to speak their language! Not in the way those with Fe can.

    That is why I don't think ESJs are that stubborn.

    They want something done their way, so you act accordingly, i.e. you do things your way with them thinking they somehow got their way, leaving all parties happy!
