    It's different in an ugly and nonsensical way.
    Ugly and nonsensical? Those things seem like weirdos who like to party to me. I wasn't frightened by that, either.

    What's up with the INTPs being afraid of the opposite type? I know I wouldn't put down INTP as the type that scares me the most. Perhaps the type which I understand least, but that doesn't frighten me.
    INTPs are the type that most consistently complains about their opposite. I don't even see INTJs or INFPs bitching about ESFPs and ESTJs as much. That makes me wonder...
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    It's mainly the ESFJ wimmen folk in my case. I'm not necessarily scared of the healthy ones (though I do find them to be superficial, dogmatic, and irritatingly inflexible). But the ones on the dysfunctional end of the spectrum are truly, spectacularly frightening when they go all DEFCON 1 irrational on you.

    That doesn't sound like me at all. Or any other ESFJ I know.

    Ouch. I may be inflexible, but superficial or dogmatic, I am not. I am always the relentlessly rational person in an argument, too.

    puremerc you are probably weak sensor. while I don't know you irl, you don't seem like any of the ESFJ people I know unless male ESFJ's differ a lot from the females.

    So in your carnage with ESFJs, do you never do anything to antagonize them or are they just on you like stink on doo-doo?

    Sorry, I find it hard to believe that INTPs never do anything to ESFJs and ESFJs are always attacking the poor INTPs.

    a couple of things i've noticed about ESFJ's is that it's their way, or no way at all and they're bossy.
